Where's the water shield? There was an update for this problem a few years ago. There is a water barrier shield which installs into the strut bearing and directs some water away from teh springs to slow the rot/breaking. It's a more logical repair then the zinc plate IMHO - but yes, those springs have been crap and breaking for years. I have seen them FAIL under factory warranty FYI on a 2004 MY a few times. New springs are just new springs, they will break again at somepoint. This is a GM part for sure, as the Malibu's used to have this same problem, and other GM products too I recall.
