8” Legend and Bandolero Swift Springs | Suspension spring for US Legend car and Bandolero
Rates available: 140 to 350; lower rates available in 10" springs
Maintaining tire grip is the key to faster times and suspension springs take on an enormous portion of this task!
All Springs are not created equal, the diameters and spring rates can be similar, but the process of manufacturing springs plays a huge factor in how they will perform. Through our extensive knowledge in performance springs, we have perfected the process of manufacturing springs that will outperform our competitors.
With this in mind, we set out to produce a new material for coil springs: a proprietary steel alloy we call "HS5.TW". This material was created in order to maintain the 4 factors listed above, as well as achieving the fastest reaction speed possible to get compliance on road surface conditions. Our springs are created with proprietary winding methods, as well as some other trade secrets focused on ensuring our springs separation from the standard market.
In the time since Swift Springs officially opened its doors in 1997, Swift Springs has dealt with many world class race teams in multitudes of different races including road racing, rally, off road, drift, autocross, pavement and dirt oval track, motorcycles, and more. Swift Springs has lifted many racers to a podium finish, and is still continuing to do so. With so much experience behind us, we feel confident that our springs will give you a leg up in any kind of race you participate in.
Surely you have read some spring manufacture's catalogs before, and you have read that they all claim to have the 4 factors listed below.
1. The most consistent spring rate throughout the stroke
2. The largest amount of stroke
3. The highest durability against loss of spring height
4. The lightest in weight
We like to believe that all suspension spring manufacturers try their best to achieve these 4 factors. Top suspension tuners know that these 4 factors play an intricate role when considering the effectiveness of the suspension coil spring.
Our parent company, Tohatsu, has been winding industrial springs since 1924. Tohatsu then decided to get in to the auto racing market in 1996. Based on long-time experience dealing with coil springs, we came up with one goal: "We must make the product that will revolutionize the ones we see on the market now." Keeping this goal in mind, we went back to the basics of coil spring design and asked ourselves what is the most important factor that we need to consider on this new project.
