A lot of the life of a spring depends on how well you take care of it. I have see springs go soft after just one year because the were not takin care of.

Keep it sideways!

dirtmod what do you do to take care of a spring other than proper car setup.

We take care of ours by the only time the weight of the car is on them is if you are going on or on the track. In the pits and on the trailer or in the shop we jack the rearend up to keep the weight off of them. Adds alot of timet o their life

We do the same thing listed above. Always try and keep the car off the springs.
