Coil Spring - Racing
Coil springs are one of the most effective, and commonly used springs on a vehicles suspension. Coil springs are subject to large amounts of compression, due to the vehicle's total weight being placed on them. Coil springs are circular coils with spaces between the circles. The space between the circles allows the spring to compress, without the spring's circles joining together. Coil springs are made from steel, which does not deform under pressure. Coil springs improve the vehicle's handling, and performance, and absorb shock experienced, from driving over bumps, and potholes.
Coil springs are commonly found on race cars, and high performance vehicles, and assist with the style of harsh braking, accelerating, and sharp turns experienced in these vehicles. The coil springs used on high performance vehicles, are typically shorter than standard coil springs, which allows the vehicle to be lower to the ground, which reduces body roll, and increases handling. These shorter springs have less travel in them, and allow the vehicle's body to stay close to the ground without making contact with the ground. Coil springs are replaced often on these vehicles, because minimal wear to the springs affects the way the car sits, and handles.
Racing coil springs are typically made by wrapping the metal around a mandrel. After the spring is formed into the desired shape, it is grinded, heat-treated, shot-peened, and painted, to protect it from corrosion. Before painting, the spring is compressed, in order to prevent settling.
