I'm borrowing it because mine is broken down, so this is a very uncomfortable situation for me. In case you're wondering, i'm a very cautious and easy driver. You can hear the issue quite well in the youtube video I've posted here. Thanks for any advice!
The sound you hear may not be a spring, but Nissan has a recall for front spring failures for that year. Check with any Nissan dealer, provide them with the vin number, and they can tell you if your friends car has had its springs replaced. It is at NO COST to the owner!! My 2009 versa sedan was parked in the driveway when the front drivers side spring let go.
