1. Role of Coil Springs
Support the vehicles weight and absorb the impact of the road condition
Increases the life of the shock absorber and all suspension components (including tyre)
Together with shock absorbers they make up the vehicles suspension system which keeps the tyres in contact with the road.
2. Why change Coil Springs?
To return the vehicle to the correct ride height
To maintain tyre contact with the road surface
To improve road handling
To improve wheel alignment
To save money by increasing shock absorber life
3. When should Coil Springs be changed?
When broken – always replace in axle pairs
When fatigued (sagging) – always replace in axle pairs
Shock absorbers should also be replaced at the same time – always replace in axle pairs
