Re: Spring spacer & Spring rate question
Got a nice explanation as to whats happening with the addition of the spacer and why it made the rear end bouncy in my car. This is what i wanted to know.
Learned: 1) the spacer doesn't change the spring rate of a linear spring, but may take out the soft part of a progressive spring due to pre-loading 2) spacer increases the pre-load which is what i was experiencing. Suspension preloaded and not enough weight.
This is like the same thing we have on our motorcycles which comes with a pre-load adjustable rear shockers which has a notched spring seat.
And how in the hell did the question i posted here in this thread end up here at Auto-India.co.in? Spring spacer & Spring rate question
