So in a previous post I mentioned that I had two springs break while the car was parked up, today I replaced the rears. While in the car came across a split aluminium plate with two holes in it,should there be bolts in there? The other pic is what looks like the remains of a plastic fitting, (tracker?) anyone any idea what it was.

I don't think there should be bolts in there. I happen to still have mine open for putting in coilovers. The aluminum plate is what the Bose subwoofer shelf sits on and there doesn't seem to be any bolts/studs coming from it (that would mate with the holes). As for the broken clip - I don't have that on my 2005 C2S as can be seen in my pic. It's been a few months since I took mine apart so I may need some help from you when I put it back together. ?

Thanks for that, there are in fact threaded holes below the plate but perhaps its for another application. Having just replaced what I thought were stock springs with stock springs I'm a little concerned the height on mine is higher than I'd like so I may have to modify the springs. 

Interesting your top bolts seem to have washers under them, mine don't.

If you are referring to the black area near/below the shoulder - it is a marking from during my disassembly process.
