  • King's progressive springs

    Is this the normal appearance of progressive springs? The top coils are all in contact with each other whilst the car is on the ground.

    I was hoping for a softer ride, but they really don't seem any better than the regular King's springs.

    Yes, the T in the part number signifies progressive tapered spring. Essentially, the softer spring rate section gets compressed and isn't doing much for your case.

      Yeah I had read that that might be the case before I bought them, but I didn't really think there would be such a little difference in the ride quality (and perhaps even slightly worse than before).

      The car definitely leans a bit more initially when turning e.g. when changing lanes, and it's lost that 'lively' handling feeling compared with the previous KTFR 101 HD King's springs I had on the car.

      I'll hopefully get a chance to try them off road this weekend - if they're no better than the regular HD King's over the corrugations, I might swap the old ones back on.

        Hey Tom150
        how did you go with your springs, swapped them out?
        I am considering progressive Kings or Superiors in the front if mine. I have ARB steel winch bar, winch, UVPs and running ARB BP51 at 2.5inch. the front has settled around 45mm lower after 15k. Not happy with the rake. Handling on road is crappy. The springs are not coping with the front end weight.

        The ARB boys in Wangara said they will consider taking the BP back, but want to try and fix springs first to see what happens.

        Any advice mate?

        Cheers.

          HappyChappy,

          With the weight of a steel bar, winch & UVP I expect the top "softer" coils will be spring bound at rest so I doubt you would get any benefit from them more likely a worse ride.
