What are coil springs on a car? Put simply, they're part of its suspension, along with shocks and struts, bushings, and sway bar links. For this reason, they're also called suspensions springs. What they do is support the weight of your vehicle, help keep it off the ground, maintain the right alignment angles, and most importantly, compress to absorb impact when your wheels and tires roll over uneven terrain. The results: reliable handling and a smooth ride.
How Do I Tell If My Coil Springs Are Bad?
There are signs and symptoms to look for. They include vehicle sag and sway, tire wear, underbody noise, and abnormal bouncing. There's no specific timeframe for when coil springs should be replaced, unfortunately. The best way to figure out the answer to that question is to inspect your vehicle's suspension system regularly to see if they're worn out. And the best way to do it: lift your vehicle on a hoist. You can change a coil spring when it rusts or cracks from prolonged exposure to moisture or road salt or when it just plain becomes too weak. The best replacements are genuine Mopar coil springs, as they'll come guaranteed to fit your make and model. You can buy what you need from our auto parts store.
