What do coil springs do?

The main purpose of coil springs is to ensure the wheels are in good contact with the road surface whilst providing absorption from uneven surfaces.

Coil springs are often also known as road springs or even suspension springs.

How do coil springs work and what are the components

Coil springs are a helicoil of strengthened steel, designed to give a balance between stiffness and absorption. They need to hold the weight of the vehicle up but at the same time not be so stiff that the car is jolted from every bump in the road.

There are mainly two types of coil springs used by manufacturers. The first type have a constant size of diameter steel all the way down the coil and the second type have a decreasing size of diameter which allows for more absorption and comfort initially then more strength under load.

### How do you know there is something wrong with coil spring?
Usually, you can notice something is amiss with a coil spring as some of the conditions are quite noticeable such as;

  • The vehicle is noticeably lower on one side
  • There is uneven steering, or even veering off to one side
  • There are rattles and knocks when going over uneven road surfaces.

However, there are occasions where a coil spring has broken right at the bottom and it’s therefore not always that obvious. It has also been known for the coil springs on both sides to break within a short time of each other, especially if the vehicle has been parked up for some time, so the obvious leaning to one side isn’t quite so evident.

When should you consider a coil spring replacement?

Given that the correct operation of a road spring is of utmost importance to handling, braking and general safety of the vehicle, as soon as you are aware that a coil spring has broken, it must be replaced - and BOTH sides will need to be done at the same time.

As coil springs get older, their strength decreases and therefore the function of both absorbing the uneven surfaces and keeping the wheels in contact with the road surface is reduced. Whilst this factor isn’t of major significance when both springs are of the same age as it will be even on each side, if you put a new spring on one side it will unbalance the vehicle. This will result in significantly upsetting the handling and road holding, but can cause a major issue under braking as one side will “grip” the road better than the other side and result in veering to one side.

Therefore, coil springs are always replaced in axle pairs. ClickMechanic will not replace one side only, even on relatively new vehicles.

How common is a coil spring replacement?

With ever worsening road conditions, more speed control measures and heavier vehicles, coil springs are subjected to more strain now than they were 20 years ago. Therefore coil spring replacements are a regular occurrence these days.

How can I extend the life of my coil springs?

Whilst there isn’t much you can do on a day to day basis about rough road surfaces, pot holes etc, taking care over traffic calming measures and avoiding anything that will give the car a jolt will improve the lifetime of a coil spring.

Vehicles do not like being left stationary for a long period of time. This is very much the case for coil springs, which tend to break more frequently when left!

What happens during the replacement of coil springs?

Whilst there are difference between vehicles, there are some basic processes across most;

  • The mechanic will raise the vehicle and inspect the suspension system and coil springs in detail.
  • If necessary, the mechanic will replace the front or rear pair of coil springs.
  • The mechanic will advise if other components need to be replaced.
  • The mechanic will check the suspension again and test drive the car.

How much do coil springs cost to replace?

The cost of replacing coil springs depends on your car and what parts your car's manufacturer recommends using for the replacement. Find out what you could save by having your coil springs replaced by ClickMechanic, by selecting your car at the top of this page!
