JK Wrangler Broken Valve Spring

Hi Guys,

I am new to the jeep forum.
I bought a 2009 JK wrangler, less than a year ago. It was good condition and low k's.

However the other day, returning to my Jeep at the car parks after a couple of hours, starting the car it began to run very rough almost dying. Where it was driving perfect prior.

It has been diagnosed as a broken valve spring in cylinder 6.

I am just wondering if this is a common issue for others?
What way did you go to fix the issue, new engine or fix the cylinder head?
I live in south east melbourne, any recommendations of Jeep specialists who could fix this?

For a car of this age it seems very unlikely to happen so I thought I would check if its just my luck or something that others have experienced too?
