Coil springs support the weight of the vehicle and establish the ride height. As such they are the main components in lift and lowering kits for many vehicles. But performance coil springs can also improve handling, providing the stiffness required to reduce body roll and maintain traction at all four wheels. We have coil springs in a range of heights and spring rates, spring kits to replace air suspension systems, spacers to alter ride height, polyurethane isolators, and a large selection of spring mounts and hardware for both factory and custom installations.
Leaf spring suspension is old technology, and leafs have been supplanted by modern multi-link systems with coil springs on most late-model cars. But they were original equipment on many performance cars in the past, and some fine handling sports cars still use transverse leaf springs made of advanced composite material. And of course, with their excellent load carrying capabilities they remain the springs of choice for truck rear suspension. Whether you want to lift or lower your ride, or improve its performance or load capacity, we have the performance leaf springs and related components for the job.
When a vehicle sags, squats, and sits low at one end, a variety of problems can ensue. When towing a large trailer or carrying a heavy load in a truck bed, weight distribution becomes biased to the rear. This can cause the headlights to point skyward instead of illuminating the road ahead, so you may not be able to detect obstacles or see road signs clearly in darkness. The front tires steer the vehicle and bear most of the braking burden. With a rearward weight bias, traction for steering and braking will be reduced at the front wheels, which can make driving dangerous.
