Kings Springs exclusively use high quality, high stress X5K spring steel.
This new generation steel allows King Springs to further improve many of their existing designs by reducing the amount of steel required in a spring, making it substantially lighter (by approximately 30%) and reducing the solid height therefore increasing travel. Being of particular benefit at all top levels of Motorsport, this new high stress material was introduced to the leading v8 super car teams (inc HRT, FPR & HSV) in early 2007 giving a hugely successful endorsement of its characteristics & proven durability.
Although considerably expensive, King Springs have introduced this new high stress steel to their passenger car and 4wd designs which benefit the most at no extra cost to the consumer. As of now all King Springs manufactured coils are now in X5K material.
Many of our springs are designed to cross reference and give various height options on some vehicles. This information is too diversified and complicated to be printed and is often conditional. Please consult our technical staff if specialist height options are requested.
VEHICLE RIDE HEIGHTS (centre hub to guard)
An extensive library of vehicle ride heights is being compiled and this information is available to all customers.
Please note: The following height classifications are a generalization only. The degree of lowering or raising can vary between part numbers and vehicles. Spring design i.e. spring rate and vehicle height with shock travel. If exacting measurements are required for vehicle ride heights please contact us at WHOLESALE SUSPENSION ARNDELL PARK NSW 2148.
In general the first stage spring will raise or lower a vehicle approximately 30mm from factory standard.
Please note vehicles over 12 months old have normally settled and as the years pass sag considerably and may no longer sit at “factory height” giving the illusion of raising the car higher than stated or not lowering enough.
Measure the cars HTG height for a more accurate approach to ordering the spring in the height you require or for load carrying and to compensate for accessories please contact us at WHOLESALE SUSPENSION ARNDELL PARK NSW 2148.
NOTE: Super Low & Ultra Low coils generally drop in 10mm increments.
