Small Block Front Coil Over Springs Part #S-2


1968-74 Front Springs, Shocks, Sway Bar, Coilover
Small Block Front Coil Over Springs Part #S-2
Global West Suspension sells Camaro small block springs for model years 1967, 1968 or 1969 (one inch drop). Global West suggests installing linear rate springs (also known as constant rate) over variable because linear rate springs provide the best performance for our customers. Here are advantages of linear rate verses variable: Consistency: As a linear spring is compressed, the resistance increases per inch equal to that of the rate. For instance, if a spring is rated at 300 pounds per inch, for every inch of travel the spring compresses, the resistance increases 300 pounds. As a result, one-inch of compression will provide 300 pounds of resistance, two-inches 600 pounds, and three-inch 900 pounds. Variable rate springs, however, do not increase in the same fashion. The are generally rated with a lower spring rate on initial, and build to the desired rate. Example: The first one-inch of travel might start out as 250 pounds per inch, the second-inch 560, and the third 900. If a driver is looking to improve one’s driving skills, a vehicle must give predictable feed-back each time during cornering and trail braking. A linear spring will do that because the rate is consistent. Less chance of bottoming: Lowered cars always have reduced suspension travel. The lower you go, the less travel is available. Variable rate springs tend to allow more travel before the spring can build rate, keeping the suspension from bottoming. The question is: Is there enough suspension travel available while the spring builds enough resistance (rate) before bottoming occurs? Variable rate springs tend to over emphasize the geometry curve giving us more tire movement than necessary. Chassis diagnostics is difficult. Lowered Springs: Global West springs generally lower the vehicle one-inch in the front and up to 1-1/4 inches in the rear depending on the option for your vehicle. Why we only lower about one-inch in the front is simple, there is not enough suspension travel beyond one-inch for street
