hey hows it going. we had a big snow storm up here in mississauga(toronto) this past week and for somereason after that i had a problem with my car.

the brakes seem to have died. so while taking off the rear wheel i noticed a skinny metal tube to my brakes was snapped and brake fluid coing out of it. i am guess that is brake line. how much do you trhink it would be to replace one i have a 2000 catera sport also it looks like spring is slighlty hanging off the mount on the control arm. hmm damn snow. what does a picture of the rear spring look like,. is it supposedx to be narrow at the bottom as it is at the top. if thast a case maybee the spring cracked.

any info would be appreciated. im just trying to figure things out before i bring to a shop becasue of them being closed


thanks
