Bumper guards, grille guards, brush guards, snowplow attachments and winches can cause front-end sag as your factory suspension compresses under weighty loads. This means that the front axle is trying to support not only the equipment but also the truck's weight. An unevenly distributed load puts less weight on your back tires, leading to trouble with traction, steering and braking. These beefy coils replace your OEM coil springs to help your front end bear up under the load, evening out the weight. They help to lift the front end and to keep your headlights level, making driving easier and safer.
SuperCoils are a maintenance-free solution to the sagging caused by heavy front-end equipment and armor plating.

Formed Stainless Steel Compression Spring

In business for more than 50 years, we have experience in a broad range of industries and are equipped to serve the unique needs of each. At Tinmy Coil Spring Co., Ltd., we formed the stainless steel coil spring shown here for use in critical aerospace test equipment. It featured 13.1 coils, free length of 0.930", and diameter of .247". Intended for use as the upper spring in a hardness gauge designed for testing heat tiles, the specifications called for tight ± 0.005" dimensional tolerances and load rating of 13 ± 0.13 lbs.

By paying careful attention to every detail, tightly controlled manufacturing, and precision grinding, we were able to produce the part repeatedly within the defined tolerances. Quality assurance procedures involved load testing, rate testing, as well as visual inspections. Current production for this component is lots of 10,000 units, which we produce in a 3-4 week time frame to meet the client’s production schedule.

Coil Spring used spring in most all motor-sports today

Coil spring are the most common used spring in most all motor-sports today. The reason is because it is very easy to change the component as well as check the rate, unlike leaf springs and some total hydraulic shock suspensions. Furthermore, with the incorporation of the coil-over spring/shock type suspension, the coil spring and shock ratio is close together and operates as one unit. Of the many components that can be changed on a race car chassis, the coil spring change brings about one of the most adverse effects on a chassis.

When choosing a brand of coil springs several issues should be addressed.

The quality of the material being used.
The design of the spring.
The type of end the spring has.
The true rate of the spring, not just a tag denoting “theoretical” rate.
Correct markings
Does it have actual print outs of each spring (data sheets)?
Standardized testing procedures.
Are their hidden cost in the spring purchased?
Coil Spring MATERIAL The use of a high quality material such as chrome silicon steel is used to assure a long lasting spring that will maintain a consistent rate and hold free height over many cycles. In addition, the choice of this material will allow a manufacture to wind the spring out of smaller wire to incorporate a larger pitch, which will inadvertently allow more travel and produce a lighter weight spring. In some instances the manufacture may have to choose chrome vanadium wire, instead of chrome silicon. Some springs may need .780 or .810 wire so as to not to be high stressed. Chrome silicon generally comes only in no larger than a .625 size from wire suppliers in the USA. If a manufacturer decides to produce a spring utilizing chrome silicon (.625) wire in leiu of a .710 where the stress levels are too high, then the spring will more than likely loose free height, take set and even in some cases break. So in some cases, using chrome vanadium for higher rated springs is a better choose than chrome silicon.

DESIGN: Most coil spring failure is directly related to thedesign of the spring. It is important to design the spring toits environment as well as its intended use. Pitch is the distance between the wire on any given coil-spring. Coil springs woundwith an inconsistent pitch will produce an inconsistent rate. If the pitch is consistent, but too far apart then the springwill tend to take set and distort. If the pitch is too close together then the spring may not have as much travel resultingin coil binding. Slenderness ratio needs to be considered when addressing the design of the spring. If and when the length exceeds the outside diameter ratio then the spring will tend to bow, similar to the shape of a banana. Designing a spring also requires considering the wire size, o.d., i.d., free height, compressed height and static loads that are to be expected oneach spring.

SPRING ENDS: The ends of a spring are one of the most crucial of a coil spring. Flat end springs are achieved in two different ways, ground or forged. The ground end springs are the best way to achieve complete spring square-ness. When this is accomplished correctly, spring rates and reactions can be more accurately predicted which in turns makes the chassis more predictable. Furthermore, there will tend to be less stress on the springand spring related because the pressure will beequally distributed throughout the spring and chassis. The less desired method is the forged or stamped method.
The completely closed-ends are used when the requirement is that rate remains more consistent throughout the coil springs’ travel. The disadvantage is that the spring will not tend to lock in place and may turn in the control-arm bucket. Several top-level teams have found that this movement actually causes the car to handle inconsistently. When the car is jacked up during a pit stop for a tire change, the suspension may become completely unloaded leaving the coil spring to rotate in the spring bucket. The engine vibration and the contact of the new wheel being installed on the hub face generally causes enough instability to cause the spring to shift in the pocket. When this occurs, the car will increase spring pre-load and do one of two things. When it happens on the left front, the chassis will loose bite. When it happens on the right front, the chassis will gain bite. As a result, the car will have unpredictable chassis characteristics and may cause premature tire wear. Moreover, on super-speedways, the raised frame height will result in the car having to push to much air. When using the closed-end type springs, we recommend that the spring be wire tied in place just enough so as to hold the spring in place, but not where the spring is in a bind.
The open-end type springs are required when spring security of location is desired. For example, ARCA and other type stockcar chassis whose accuracy of pit stop changes are a necessity. These springs tend to stay locked in place when the suspension is unloaded; for instance, changing a tire during a pit stop. The disadvantage of this style spring is that the spring rate has a progression in spring rate. Meaning that as the spring is compressing it is gaining rate. For instance, a 1300 lb/in spring may be 1325 the first inch, 1395 the second and 1460 the third inch. One negative senerio is the fact that the right front compresses at a faster and compresses more than the left front, the chassis may tend to gain cross. Causing the right front tire to have a higher tire temp, as a result, a shorter life of the tire.

TRUE RATE OF A SPRING: Knowing the actual rate of each spring is crucial. Whenever a manufacture sets up to run several hundred springs of one particular rate, the end result is less than perfect. Even though the winding process using CNC automated equipment is consistent, the variances in the quality of spring wire is not as consistent. As a result, not every spring will come out exact. No one including us can guarantee every spring to rate out exactly. Knowing this, Landrum Spring as elected to rate, dyno, print (numerical as well as graphical data), engrave each spring’s serial# and rate. Furthermore, Landrum Spring is recognized as the only company in the racing industry world wide doing so.

The reasons are easy. For example, if the spring industry standard is say 5%. Then a 2,000 lb spring could be anywhere between 1,900 to 2,100lbs. Here is a typical situation found at any given track. Let say that a chassis engineered wanted to increase the right front spring rate by only 200lbs. The current spring is tagged 2,000#; however, the unknown actual rate is 1,900 lbs. The new spring is tagged 2,200#; on the other hand, the unknown rate is 2,310lbs. The actual total spring change instead of 200#s is 410#, over 100% more or twice the spring change desired.

Correct MarkingCORRECT MARKING: Having a spring with the correct markings is very crucial. Most companies incorporate a metal tag denoting the “theoretical rate” of each spring. These theoretical rates are just that, “Theoretical”. Knowing that every spring has it’s own characteristics, Landrum Spring , engraves the exact rate of each and every GOLD COIL to 1/10lb. For instance, a J200 (5″o.d. x 13″tall x 200# coil spring) may be engraved 201.8.

SERIAL NUMBER: Having a spring that has it’s own serial number is important. Every GOLD COIL has its own dyno sheets incorporated in its box when leaving our facility. If a user was to loose their sheets then we should be able to pull the data up at a later date. Furthermore, if in the event that there is a spring failure, we can trace the spring’s history and make up all the way back to the wire source. This is important due to the fact that some springs may be in various warehouses, dealers and chassis shops for up to two – three years before reaching the race team.

Coil Spring Data PrintoutsDATA PRINTOUTS: Having springs packaged with data information is crucial to any serious race team. All of the GOLD COILS are packaged with dyno sheets detailing the dynamic rate in a graphical form as well as numerical form. These data sheets clearly shows the details of the load in pounds of force, in increments of 1/10th of an inch for each and every GOLD COIL.

On the DynoSTANDARDIZED TESTING: Landrum Spring uses the same rating system that many of the race teams that participate in the premier race divisions (CUP, ARCA, and IRL uses.) Through interviewing various teams, we found that current spring supliers were using many various methods of rating coil spring. These methods, good or bad, can be confusing at times. We felt that more standardized rating would be helpful to everyone involved. Each and every data sheet clearly shows the pre load as well as the displacement that the spring was tested at. This eliminates the inaccuracies and confusion of trying to figureout how each spring is rated.

Hidden CostsSPRINGS WITH HIDDEN COST $$$$: Simply put it, buying GOLD COILS may save most any race team money. By purchasing springs that are already accurately rated, you will not have to pay your engineer ($$$$), team manager ($$$$), or crew chief ($$$$) to rate springs that you have purchased. Furthermore, a race team will not have to purchase additional springs to fill the void left by the springs that did not rate properly to the “theoretical rate” that they where suppose to be. In addition, teams would not have to purchase expensive testing equipment. Moreover, accurate spring changes will allow teams to be more progressive in their test sessions and eventually reflect in their qualifying efforts and then onto the race.

High-Tensil WireDISPOSE OF DAMAGED SPRINGS: While springs are made of a high-tensil strength wire, they are susceptible to damage from impact. Springs should be replaced after a chassis has received a severe blow. If there are any marks or distortions on the spring they should be discarded. Many times hair-line fractures and cracks can not be seen without the aide of a flourecscent penetrant inspection. Reusing a damaged spring could have negative consequences.

HOPEFULLY THE INFORMATION CONTAINED IN THE TECHNICAL AREA HAS BEEN HELPFUL.
