One of the most annoying noises to hear on any vehicle is a suspension rattle. Loose suspension parts buzz and vibrate at speed and then clank and clunk when you drive slowly down the street. Often times these noises are caused by coil springs that have a worn out or damaged spring support. The job of spring supports is to keep the steel springs isolated and held in place so that they do not rotate, rattle around, and cause premature wear. Here at Andy's we have you covered with a good selection of spring supports that will guarantee a quiet ride. So if your ride is starting to make some suspension noise, we think it is a good idea to inspect your spring supports.
DID YOU KNOW?
Spring supports are a simple item but their job is crucial. Keeping the coil spring held firmly in place guarantees proper suspension geometry and movement. When spring supports are damaged or fail, the coil spring becomes loose in the strut which can cause problems with ride height, ride quality and in worse case scenarios the spring will bind and cause damage to other suspension pieces. If you are replacing your springs or struts we strongly encourage you to spend a little extra money and replace your spring supports as well. This is a cheap way to gain a little added piece of mind.
