Springs are an important part of a vehicle's suspension system. Their purpose is to absorb the impact of changes in terrain on a vehicle, thus providing a smoother riding experience and improving the vehicle's handling and braking. Suspension springs come in several varieties, including leaf springs, air springs and coil springs. Coil springs are probably what comes to mind when you think of a "spring." They are made of a bar of metal which has been tightly coiled into a tube. The use of coil springs is not limited to suspension systems; they are also used in mattresses, for example. A popular high-end customization for vehicles is the installation of new coil springs. The springs can be used to lower or raise the vehicle's profile, or to make the "ride" of the vehicle softer (to improve passengers' comfort) or firmer (to improve driving performance or load-bearing capability). Coils can also require replacement due to simple wear and tear. A car with a spongy ride, or a vehicle that "nose-dives" during braking, may require new coils. The condition of the coil is best determined by a knowledgeable mechanic, who can measure the car's height from the ground to determine if it is sagging or leaning. Other signs of a problem include missing coils, cracks or worn spots on the coil, or damage to surrounding parts such as bushings. Replacement of coil springs can be a dangerous undertaking. This is because the coil is typically under high pressure and storing a large amount of energy. The coil must be released in a controlled fashion to prevent it from abruptly springing out of its setting and injuring the mechanic. For this reason, many mechanics use a coil compressor to change the coil. With this specialized tool, the mechanic can keep the coil compressed until it is removed from the vehicle, and then slowly decompress the coil by unscrewing the compressor's through-bolt. Some very skilled mechanics use a floor jack and hydraulic lift to remove the coil, but this technique requires careful judgment and experience, and it should not be performed by amateurs.
The Bilstein Coil Spring is a heavy spring that keeps the weight of a vehicle's body plus any load it carries from resting on the tires.
