Load Centralizing Hydraulic Spring Perches

< back to Springs List

An inherent characteristic of coil springs is that as they compress they produce a lateral, or sideways load acting on the shock shaft trying to bend it resulting in highly increased frictional forces within the damper, these extra forces give lowered tyre grip levels, and increased tyre wear.

The assembly allows the end coils of the spring to tilt (up to 4 degrees) as compressive loads are applied centralising the loads fed into the shock. The result is that up to 96% of the bending is eliminated increasing mechanical grip.

The spring perch can be used with any existing shock absorbers fitting between the existing spring collar and the spring.
