KING SPRINGS REVIEW
“ONE OF THE HIGHEST RATED SPRINGS IN AUSTRALIA”
When talking about King Springs, you’ll typically see the age-old adage of King vs Lovell Springs. Fighting for the top spot for value, performance and overall build quality, King Australia has shown time and time again why so many Aussies recommend them. King Performance Springs Australia use the highest grade materials and are made in Australia.
WHO ARE KING SPRINGS?
King Springs is Australia’s leading specialist’s manufacturer of aftermarket coil springs. They have internal capabilities to design, develop, and manufacture springs all from the one site. All springs made by King are rigorously test and are compliant to Australian standards.
King suspension Springs was established in 1956 on Queensland’s Gold Coast and have become the leaders in automotive coil springs manufacturers. King Springs leads the way in design and manufacture of advanced progressive spring suspension with both variable pitch and tapered wire forms.
King Spring Suspension service all sectors of the automotive market including passenger, commercial and 4×4 vehicles and various motorsport categories including circuit, rally, speedway and off-road racing.
WHAT’S THE BIG DEAL WITH PROGRESSIVE RATE SPRINGS?
Progressive rate springs are the ultimate in spring design. The principle is simple. The spring rate increases when you need it (cornering, load carrying etc.) and decreases it when you don’t. The science is over what suspension travel and to what degree the spring rate will increase. This varies greatly between vehicles.
When looking for springs, there are 3 things you must take into account;
- Ride Comfort
- Shock Absorber Control
- Spring Entrapment
The spring rate must increase enough to give improvement without causing undue harshness. All King suspension components for passenger and 4X4 vehicles are made with ride comfort in mind. All springs made by King Springs have ride comfort in mind with ideal spring coil rates for pleasant ride quality. King is leading automotive coil spring manufacturers because they understand the theory behind spring development. Their springs are fine-tuned for different uses on the road. Hard springs reduce body roll, giving the vehicle improved handling, whereas soft springs can result in more body roll but better ride quality. King Springs Australia has developed springs for both ends of the spectrum and even have springs with a balance of both spectrums. Extensive research and development have been conducted by King Springs in Sydney and Australia to make suspension components that condition well in harsh Australian conditions.
SHOCK ABSORBER CONTROL
The Shock Absorber plays a vital role in controlling a vehicle’s stability. Excessive spring rate can often find shock absorbers struggling to control the vehicle (lack of rebound control). King Shocks Australia have implemented Rebound Control. Vastly improving vehicle stability mean the suspension setup in a vehicle doesn’t struggle for grip due to a lack of rebound control and has great ride quality. King Springs control how firm ride quality is whereas Shock Absorbers control rides comfort and dampening over uneven surfaces. King Springs has implemented Rebound Control, which reduces the amount the pistons rebound within the absorber component when absorbing imperfections on the road.
When an increase in spring rates decrease in vehicle ride height is required, spring entrapment can become a problem. Previously, the only solution is a compromise of a minimal increase in spring rate and/or minimal decrease in vehicle ride height giving unsatisfactory results (suspension bottoming or not low enough). King Performance Springs Australia had developed the ideal compromise between minimal increases in spring rates and decreases in ride height. Meaning King Suspension customers don’t have to compromise between great ride quality and an appealing ride height.
Referring to the above 3 conditions with Kings Tapered Wire / Performance Progressive Rate Springs a substantial spring rate increase is achieved with minimal loss of ride comfort as the spring rate increases and decreases where necessary. As the spring de-rates (the spring rate decreases) the shock absorber no longer struggles for rebound control and gives improved vehicle stability.
ENTER KINGS PERFORMANCE TAPERED WIRE / PROGRESSIVE RATE COIL SPRINGS
With Kings Performance Tapered Wire / Progressive Rate Coil Springs, spring entrapment problems are now often solved with substantial spring rate increases and ride height decreases available.
KINGS PERFORMANCE TAPERD WIRE / PROGRESSIVE RATE COIL SPRING
“The Intelligent Coil Spring”
Progressive Rate Design Principles
Remembering the principle, ‘the fewer coils in a spring, the higher the spring rate’ as the spring compresses under load the gathered coils come into contact and become inactive thus increasing the spring rate. The point at which each coil comes into contact and the rate of increase is the result of extensive research, development, and testing on advanced testing equipment.
Kings Performance Tapered Wire / Progressive Rate Springs in most cases are designed around the De-rate principle, i.e.; the critical part of the suspension travel from ride height back to full suspension drop. The aim is to allow the spring rate to decrease smoothly back the to the original spring rate or as close as possible. King Performance Springs allow the spring rate to decrease smoothly back to original spring rates whilst offering a drop in ride quality.
Original Spring Rate 120lb/” Heavy Duty Linear Spring Rate 160lb/” King Performance Progressive Spring Rate 130lb/” to 200lb/”
The above progressive rate spring would have similar or more improved ride quality than the heavy duty spring with a substantially higher spring rate being achieved at ride height.
Please Note: Tapered Wire / Progressive Rate Springs are not necessary for all vehicles and are only used in specific vehicles recommended by King Coil Suspension Springs depending on suspension type and spring travel.
King’s Tapered Wire / Progressive Rate Springs have the unique ability to allow many part numbers to cross reference not only between different vehicles but also front and rear. As the load varies in all cases, the spring rate adjusts accordingly
WHAT ARE KING SPRINGS MADE OF?
King Springs Australia are manufactured using only the best X5K Steel available. They use computer-controlled coiling machines, electronic furnaces, automatic bar peeling process and cambering machines which have been designed and custom built by King Suspension Springs Australia to ensure that all areas of the manufacturing processes are of the highest standard.
King Springs have exclusively uses high-grade components that can have high-stress rates. X5K Steel is used for all King Springs in Sydney and Australia to improve the design and performance for road vehicles, 4X4s, Commercial and Racing uses. King Springs chose X5K as they can improve current designs and performance whilst reducing the amount of steel required to produce King Springs, resulting in a lighter spring with increased travel. King Springs Australia use of high-stress X5K material has set benchmark standards across all automotive platforms, including Australia’s V8 Supercar Series. King Springs sponsors Sydney and Worldwide based teams such as the DJR Team Penske, FTR, and Nissan.
HOW ARE KING SPRINGS MANUFACTURED?
The high-stress material that is only supplied from One Steel is shipped to the plant in an annealed state then bar peeled and polished to the exact size to remove all surface defects, then cut to length.
The material is then heated in electric furnaces to 1000 degrees Celcius, formed on computer-controlled machines, then hardened by quenching in oil to achieve a hardness of 62 HRC. At this stage, the springs are end grounded if required.
The next process is shot peening of all surface areas to increase durability. Every spring is coil scragged, tested, and a full and final inspection is carried out.
All King springs in Sydney and Australia are then powder coated for the most durable finish and also to offer maximum presentation. The springs are then labeled by inkjet and packed up as pairs ready for shipping.
All King Springs Australia are manufactured under a quality control system that is compliant with ISO-9001:2008
Here are just some reviews from customers all over Australia:
” DEFINITELY GO FOR KINGS SPRINGS!! Made in Australia on the Gold Coast. Readily available. Quick supply timeframe. Just had a set fitted to the missus T31 X-Trail to fix under spec ride height & rear tyrewear dramas. 30%stiffer than factory and it finally drives like it should have done in the first place! Kings also custom make according to whatever you ask for. They are also suppliers of springs for the V8 ute racing series, so their R&D is ongoing under harsh conditions.”

” King shocks Australia are probably the best locally manufactured springs on the market, the King spring plant is located in QLD.
The reason I prefer to use them is the fact that most of them are progressive rated, which basically means you get a nice soft ride under normal driving conditions, and they stiffen up when you’re putting a vehicle through its paces.”

” I’m a big fan of Aussie made King 4X4 Springs, I’ve put them in 3 of my Nissan 4X4’s and currently have a set in my work van which have done over 200,000km. ”
