Do springs ever fail?

I've got factory lowering springs on my IS300, they've got 155k kms on them as of now. I recently got new struts installed and noticed that one corner is sagging lower than the other side by 1 finger gap. Could it be my springs? I thought springs don't usually go bad.

Yes, springs fail. Sometimes catastrophically. Luckily that coil broke off when I was backing out of the driveway and not bombing down the highway.

Should've taken a closer look. After some thought, I remember having to redo the suspension on my friend's 626 cause one of the springs broke the same way as yours.

When they begin to sag or are showing signs of damage like excessive corrosion.
I've had brand new spring fail. I installed a lift onto a newer Jeep Liberty a few months back and in two hours of driving a two inch lift turned into a two inch drop.
