Side load (or “banana”) springs are curved and exert a side force on the shock absorber which reduces
the friction between the shock absorber piston rod and the seal. This not only improves shock absorber response but also extends the shock absorber life.
Side load springs are fitted to many modern cars.
The coil spring pictured is for the front axle of a Citroen C3, out of the box this coil spring is shaped like a “banana”, but when compressed the spring is parallel.This type of spring is often highly stressed and difficult to compress.
Listed below are some popular applications that use banana springs. Mainly fitted to the front, popular vehicles include,CITROEN C2,C3,FIAT PUNTO, FORD FIESTA V,FOCUS,FUSION,MONDEO,VW POLO,SEAT IBIZA,SKODA FABIA
