How to Set Proper Spring Pre Load on Coilovers

74So you’ve purchased a set of coilover shocks for your car with spring pre load (or “spring tension”) adjustment, but do you know how to properly set it? Maybe your coilover system does not have independent ride height adjustability, you set it to yield a desired ride height, and are now just hoping the set pre load is within proper range. Or maybe your coilovers do have spring pre load adjustability independent of ride height adjustability, but you are unsure of how this affects performance. In this article we will describe the effects of spring pre load and how to properly set it.

Having too much or too little spring tension will negatively affect suspension performance, but in different ways. Too much spring tension can make your suspension feel like it is topping out. This happens because now the shock extends to its maximum length too suddenly, and this may unload your wheels from the road surface. Not enough spring tension can make your suspension bottom out excessively. Knowing these effects can help make the correct adjustments.

Let’s define a few terms to help understand spring pre load effects. The amount of stroke the spring consumes at static ride height from the weight of the vehicle is called “droop.” And the amount of stroke left over at static ride height is called “compression stroke.” The total shock stroke is droop and compression stroke combined.

Typical Problems in Work of Bearings and Their Causes

73There are thousands of web pages dedicated to inform agrarians what is wrong with their machinery and what to do to fix it. One of the most difficult tasks is to diagnose the issue of the breakage. This article is dedicated to the problem of bearings. In my article I have pointed out some most usual problems so you can diagnose them by yourself instead of relying on a mechanic.

Production of rolling bearings is carried out under stringent quality requirements. This is one of the most accurate devices that are available in engineering. In ideal operating conditions bearings can operate continuously for many years. Due to the fact that working conditions are rarely ideal, bearings never realise their potential in terms of resource use. Service ability of rolling bearings depends on the production, storage, maintenance, installation, working conditions and loading of bearing.

1. Surface damage due to fatigue is connected with the problem of lubrication (lubrication discrepancy, its low viscosity and oil film breaks). With further development of the defect raceway surface begins to peel and crack (it should be noted that this detachment is not as serious as ever spalling on the raceway). With the accumulation of fatigue in the material of the raceway surface becomes rough, bearing makes noise and excess heat. Permanent overload, poorly treated and contaminated surfaces inevitably lead to fatigue phenomena. This can be avoided or significantly slow down if the bearing is clean and well lubricated.
