to Consider When Replacing Coil Springs
Your suspension system
literally keeps your wheels on the road. Without proper suspension holding the
wheels and axles away from the body of your car, van, truck, or SUV your entire
vehicle would bounce up and down the road at every bump. This would mean you don’t
have adequate tire traction making contact with the road for either steering or
stopping. You rely on your car or truck to keep your wheels on the road, and
your car or truck relies on your suspension system to allow the axles to move
along even on rough terrain.
However, your suspension
system relies on the coil and leaf springs to be in good working order for all
of this to happen and keep you safe. If your coil springs are beginning to wear,
it is wise to ensure that you get a good replacement so that your vehicle can
safely return to the road without suffering similar problems to those that
cause you to need a replacement.
Road Salt Can Cause the Rusting of Coil Springs
Not all coil
are the same, and some are better with
handling the harsh conditions of road salt and chemicals than others. If you
are finding that you need to replace your coil springs because it they are
rusting and weakening, consider going with a manufacturer that can custom
design your coil springs. The team at
General Spring can
help you design the right one.
Larger Loads Require Heavy Duty Coil Springs
If you are using your truck
to haul heavy loads, it is important to know what the maximum capacity your
suspension can handle. Springs will lose their ability to spring back from
compression over time as the steel stretches, and this can happen faster when
loads larger than the spring is rated for are applied. If you are overloading
your suspension, you can be prematurely wearing out your springs. If you need
to haul a heavy load, and your regular coil springs are not up to the job, why
not consider heavy-duty coil springs to improve the load capacity of your
vehicle without changing out your entire suspension system?
