Remember to Check
Coil springs support a vehicle’s weight and absorb the impact of road conditions. Given their positioning, and exposure to road debris, coil springs should be regularly checked, especially in the winter months.
Why Should Coil Springs be Changed?
- To return the vehicle to the correct ride height
- To maintain tyre contact with the road surface
- To improve wheel alignment
- To save money by increasing shock absorber life
