A friend and I are discussing coilovers at the moment. He is thinking about his Ranger and doing a SFA swap, told him I hope to have a connection for coilovers by the time he is thinking of doing it so maybe we can help him out. Anyway, he brings up an interesting point in one of his questions. When a spring is fully compressed, does it become damage? Does it lose spring rate? Wear out? I know when a leaf spring is compressed into negative arch it is damaged and loses spring rate. So theoretically if I parked a buggy up on a ramp for a week in front of a shop as a show off piece, could I be damaging its suspension? At the same rate, when the coils on the rear of my S10 are compressed up in the same manner, am I damaging them? I'm talking like, coils touching coils, can't go any farther compressed.
