Various Types of Springs

Springs are the core of the suspension system. Various types of springs are used to absorb the bumps and keep your car at its proper trim height. These can be coil sprinqs, leaf springs, torsion bars, or air springs.Most cars use either coil or leaf springs; sport-utility vehicles use coil springs, torsion bars, or leaf springs. You'll find computer-controlled air springs on select luxury cars, such as Chrysler New Yorkers, Lincoln Continentals, and some Cadillacs.
