Suspension Spring Kit
The Suspension Spring Kit includes the suspension spring and its associated components. The suspension spring serves the purpose of maintaining the ride height, supporting the weight of the automobile and keeping the tires in contact with the surface of the road. There are three kinds of suspension springs: coil spring, torsion bar and leaf spring. The suspension spring improves the vehicle's load-carrying capability, while offering a smooth ride. The coil spring, which is commonly used in vehicles these days, is a metal wire wound into a helical shape. Its spring rate is dictated by the winding pitch and thickness of the wire. The torsion bar is a type of suspension that is fitted to the chassis of the car on one end and either to the suspension arm, axle or spindle on the other end. The spring rate is determined by the length and thickness of the torsion bar.
The leaf spring is a combination of one or more steel strips which are flexible, thin and flat. The steel strips that work together as a single component are curved into an arc. The leaf spring is attached to the frame at both ends and connected to the axle in the middle. The thickness and number of the steel strips determine the load capacity and spring rate.
A faulty suspension spring will make the vehicle bounce or sway excessively, while driving on bumpy roads. It will also cause the wheel tire to wear abnormally. If you find any of the aforementioned symptoms, the vehicle's suspension spring may be at fault. The suspension spring should be replaced at the earliest to prevent possible damage to your car's suspension mechanism.
