Q:I purchased some new shocks for my van but the ride really didn't get any better. I'm thinking I might need new springs. How do you know when you need new springs?
A:Hi Joe Skii, glad to assist you! When the original springs are no longer able to maintain proper ride height or are not capable of handling vehicle load requirements, new springs are in order. A weak spring does not carry its fair share of the load, so the wheel with the weakest spring is most likely to break traction and spin or skid during hard acceleration, cornering or braking. The weak springs also allow more body roll, which puts added strain on the shocks, struts and other suspension components. The weak springs need to be replaced and when they are, both springs on the same axle should be replaced (both fronts or both rears). This maintains the same side-to-side ride height. I would suggest that you to take your vehicle and get it thoroughly checked by a certified mechanic before buying any parts that may/may not solve the problem.
