Lovells Coil Springs

Lovells Coil Springs are designed as a superior performance replacement part for mass-produced O.E (Original Equipment) coil springs, they exceed original ratings by 10% - 50% (depending on the application), thus handling is dramatically improved  and many ride height variations are available for most makes and models. Lovells coil springs are manufactured to the highest standard in Australian Made OneSteel micro alloy steel.  Many Lovells coil springs are of progressive rate design. This design enables the spring to increase in spring rate when you need it and decrease when you don't; insuring the ultimate in handling and ride comfort.

All heating and tempering furnaces are electronically controlled to precise temperatures. Each spring is individually hot coiled on a variable speed PLC (Programmable Logic Controlled) coiling machine. After oil quenching and tempering, the springs are rate tested on a sample basis and scragged solid to achieve the maximum fibre stress.

The springs are then shot peened ready for protective surface finishing, prior to powder coating. After final inspection the springs are packaged in protective cardboard boxes (unless specified otherwise) ready for warehousing or dispatch.


Installation Tips

bulletMeasure your vehicle's ride height before installing Lovells Springs. This will ensure you know the amount of lowering after installation. On a level surface, measure from the upper wheel rim to the highest point of the fender well, before installation and after. And before you measure 'after' dimension, drive the car hard for ten miles to let the springs, spacers, etc. settle properly.
bulletBefore removing springs from your car, put a sequential number mark on each component, from top to bottom. This will help you reassemble the new and existing parts in correct order.
bulletBefore disassembling the strut assembly, draw a vertical line with a marker across each component. This will help you reinstall all the OE parts with the original factory orientation.
bulletMark the position of all alignment-related mounting bolts. This allows a good starting point for the post-installation alignment.
bulletWork on one corner of the car at a time. Some OE strut assemblies have up to 10 pieces which must be assembled in the exact order in which the factory installed them. Disassemble one corner, and if you make a mistake or lose track of the order of assembly, you can refer to the corresponding assembly as a reference.
bulletReinstall all bolts in the same oreintation (up or down) in which the manufacturer installed them.
bulletMark parts to indicate left and right side before removal. Many parts are designed specifically for the left or the right side of your car.
bulletNote any protective tubing on the factory springs, and the locations. Lovells springs are designed to reuse all factory tubing and isolators to prevent noise and premature wear.
bulletMany struts on front-wheel-drive cars have a steering bearing located between the shassis and upper strut mount. Note the orientation and be sure not to contaminate or disassemble the bearing. Proper care must be taken to ensure this bearing is installed exactly as the factory installed it to prevent steering noises and premature wear of related steering components.
bulletBrake lines and anti-lock brake sensors: Note the routing and mounting positions of all wires, cables and brake lines. Reinstalling the links differently from the factory oisition can result in damage or brake failure.
bulletSupport the spindle and brake assemblies with wire, wire coat hangers or welding rod. Failure to support the spindle may allow the inner axle to disengage from the transmission.
bulletDo not let the brake calliper os spindle hang on the brake line. This may damage the brake line and cause premature wear or even failure of the line.
bulletAlways uise the proper spring compressor to remove springs from your car, or when desassembling a strut. Springs store an enormous amount of energy and can seriously injure you os someone else if this energy is releassed unexpectedly.
bulletLeave 1/4" to 1/2" space between the end of the coil and the spring seat pocket. This will help prevent spring noise when encountering large bumps.
