Sport springs are often installed when the vehicle is lowered. They should harmonize well with the standard suspension and improve driving behavior and are the legal variant Springs upsetting / pressing. In addition to the attractive lowering, they allow increased cornering speed and thus more dynamic driving.
Excellent look of the sports springs
Sports springs in OEM quality are usually made of chrome-silicon steel and are manufactured by cold-winding process. They are multi-coated, including wearing a final epoxy coating, which makes them resistant to a variety of weather conditions. The type of lowering using sports springs depends on the vehicle model. It can be subtle, for example 15 mm back (drive axle) and 20 mm in front. A good variant for vehicles like the BMW M3 the E9x series. At the Audi A1 it can be clear 30 mm for both axes, at Golf I even 60 mm. The installation of sports springs reduces the body center of gravity, which benefits the driving dynamics. In heavy steering movements, which are required by fast cornering or evasive maneuvers, reduce the body body movements due to the lower curl. In addition, the compression and compression decreases. This makes the handling more agile.
The optimal spring rate for a lowering
The spring rate of sport springs is considered optimal, if it harmonizes perfectly with the tuning of series dampers. After all, they have in connection with the wheel loads, the respective vehicle weight and the extent of lowering a significant impact on the spring behavior of the standard chassis. Good sport springs easily carry the weight of the vehicle and, moreover, guarantee the sportier driving style thanks to their specially adapted spring rates. Depending on the level of a lowering (between 20 and 40 mm lower center of gravity) Sport springs are used with different spring rates, which fit the series dampers. The larger the lowering fails, the higher the spring rate must be.
Great variety of sport springs
Sport springs are not only available for younger vehicles or new cars such as the new E-Class from Mercedes or the Audi A7 Sportback. The drivers of timeless models, including VW Golf I or BMW E30, can always opt for the ideal sports springs. They even exist for exceptional vehicles. Most manufacturers of sport springs cover countless car brands from the Golf on Alfa Romeo, BMW, Mercedes and Japanese models to the Volvo.
