Most vehicles have coil spring suspension systems. The coil springs in cars are designed to absorb bumps and undulations in the road and to stop any jarring to both the occupants in the car and the engine. Over time, the coil spring suspension in a car can degrade and lose its spring. When this happens, the driver and passengers in the car will feel a much greater jarring in the car and this is usually when these springs need to be replaced with new ones. Testing the suspension of a vehicle is very easy. Simply push down on the car above the wheel and release, if the vehicle goes up and down quite freely it might mean that the car's coil springs need to be replaced as they are worn.
It is very important to have a suspension that is functioning properly because this aids the car’s road holding by keeping the car firmly on the road. With a worn suspension system, the car is much more difficult to control and this is the cause of many motor vehicle accidents. Do not compromise the safety of the occupants of your vehicle by driving with worn shock absorbers. If you are unsure as to the condition of the coil spring suspension, ask your servicing dealer to check and report on the suspension when the car is in for a service. If the mechanic says the coil springs need replacing, don’t hesitate to go online and purchase a new set.
The easiest way to purchase your new coil spring suspension is to locate the parts online. By inputting the model and make of your car, you will be able to select and purchase the correct components for your car and have them delivered either directly to the fitment centre of your choice or to your home address.
