Coil Spring - Lowering
Lowering a vehicle with the use of a coil spring, is an effective, and simple method used to lower the vehicle's suspension. Shorter coil springs are recommended over the use of inserts, which can be unstable. Lowering a vehicle with the use of shorter coil springs, allows the vehicle to make sharp turns, due to the stiffness of the coil spring, and brings the vehicle's mass closer to the ground, which reduces body roll. When purchasing these springs, it is imperative to match the spring's size, to that of the spring's housing, which is what holds the spring in place, on the suspension. Installing new leaf springs is cost effective, because many original parts are used, eliminating the need to purchase new parts. Installing shorter springs brings the vehicle's body closer to the axle, which is what lowers the vehicle.
Lowering springs are available as a pair, and it is imperative to replace both springs on the axle, at the same time, in order for the suspension to remain level. The material used to make coil springs is typically high grade steel, which is very durable, and has the ability to withstand the constant pressure put on the springs. Since the springs are prone to damage and corrosion, the outer surface is typically coated with a powder coat finish, which protects the metal.
