What do you guys consider the BEST coil spring manufacturer? I know AFCO makes a good spring. I made the VERY STUPID mistake of using the Speedway Tru-Coils. LOL! To everyone who reads this "in my opinion" these springs are JUNK! In the past 2 years I have had 2 or 3 springs collapse. I am tired of these springs. Some of you may have good luck with these springs but I don't!

So whats everyones preference on spring manufactures. Thanks for all replys!!!

We run the blue hyper-coil, We use to run the afcoils and had good luck with them. But I like the hyper-coil progressive pullbar springs better that the afco progressive pullbar springs, So we just switched to all Hyper-coils and are happy.

Hypercoils to me are the best. I use to manage a performance shop, and bought a brand new Intercomp digital spring rater. I then tested all the brands I could get my hands on, new and used. Hypercoils were always within 2% spec. The Landrum Gold's were pretty good. Afco, some would be off as much as 25 to 30+ lbs. One was even off by 70lbs. These were brand new. For the same price, I'll always use what all Indy 500 winners, and many other Champions use, Hypercoils. We do have 1 Landrum Gold series on the left front (all we had). But I will buy a new Hypercoil soon, and put the Landrum in the hauler for a spare. These were my own results, and I know guys that have good luck with Afco, but I personally don't like them.
