Spring steel is brittle. A crack can start for a variety of reasons. agree with SuperFlea that your shocks are due if OEM. What I don't know is how they detected the crack unless its so bad it's clearly visible and therefore real close to failing.
Edit: MisterJohnson >> In consideration of the year of the car/location and the 'stuck bolt' issue. Maybe he should think about letting the dealer correct this?
