Related Repair Advice

  • Rear coil springs should always be replaced as a set
  • Replacing the coil spring may affect the alignment's settings. We recommend a four-wheel alignment when the coil springs are replaced.
  • Extreme caution should be used when removing a coil spring compressed by the vehicle's suspension. They are under a great deal of pressure and can cause injury if not removed in the proper manner.
