  • How long would a set of OME coils last

    Its a bit of a how long is a piece of string question, but I was wanting to know thoughts on how long coil springs should be expected to last (ie maintain the lift).

    Reason I am asking is because my OME coils have been installed for about 100k (and 11 years) and more recently I seem to get a lot of sagging when loaded for camping weekends (never used to).

    The only thing additional I carry is a rear timber storage system and long ranger tank. Perhaps these additional features have pushed my coils to sagging point...

    I am worried that if I buy new coils I'll have the same problems. I guess I might have to shop around to see what other brands are out there that might be a little stiffer.

    Thoughts? This post is a bit like thinking out loud...

    I think part of your answer would lie in long ranger tank and timber storage. That alone would be put an additional 80-100Kg strain on your coils.

      Try LC 80 Series Front Coil Spacers to compensate the Extra Weight to the rear springs, I did this when towing our van and the Paj was Fully Loaded, Perfect results and Easy to fit.

        After 11 years !?! you're concerned that your springs are no longer holding up that well?

        After 11 years, just buy some new springs!

          thanks lads! sometimes it takes a post like this to work out the obvious. Will investigate the spacers but might be looking at some new springs.
