Car Coil Springs – Repair & Replacement

What do the coil springs do?

The coil springs (or suspension springs) are important suspension components in your vehicle. The springs work in conjunction with your vehicle’s shock absorbers and struts, allowing your vehicle to absorb impacts. The coil springs also keep your vehicle balanced, stopping it from leaning to one side.

When you drive through uneven terrain, the coil springs will compress as your car goes over bumps. This prevents the car from bouncing up and down from impacts and affecting driver comfort.

What causes coil spring damage?

Since the coil spring is constantly expanding and retracting, it is prone to wear, especially under extreme conditions. Over time, the coil springs can wear, corrode and crack or lose its tension (sag). This can cause problems in your suspension system.

 

What are the symptoms of a failing coil spring?

Car leaning to one side – A failing coil spring can collapse under the vehicle’s weight. This will cause the vehicle to lean to one side.

Increased bouncing – Your car may bounce more frequently, especially after going over speed bumps or potholes. This is due to your coil springs having less resistance to compression and your shock absorbers losing their dampening ability.

Car hitting the ground – The increased bouncing can cause the vehicle to hit the ground or the wheel to hit the wheel arch after driving over bumps. This can cause damage to the parts underneath your vehicle.

 

How important is a coil/suspension spring repair?

A damaged coil spring can cause damage to components underneath your vehicle. This is due to the car hitting the ground or wheel hitting your wheel arch after driving over bumps. This can cause expensive damage over time.

For this reason, we recommend that you get your coil springs serviced and repaired before they cause any more trouble.

Also, properly working coil springs and shock absorbers are a Warrant of Fitness (WOF) requirement, meaning you vehicle will fail a WOF if your coil springs or shocks are not working properly.
