More News & Tips - Progressive Coil Springs

Now That's Progress(ive)!

Some vehicles have progressive coil springs at each wheel. This type of spring changers its stiffness as it deflects. To accomplish this, a progressive spring uses coils of varying thickness (or spacing) to provide a soft ride when the vehicle is lightly loaded, but a firmer ride when the load increases. As the metal fatigues, it will not return to its normal position even without a load. If a coil spring is deeply nicked or gouged, it will twist more easily around that point and eventually break. While most vehicles run their entire lives without ever having to replace their original springs, replacement coil springs are readily available and usually are not difficult or expensive to install.
