Variable rate has a spring rate that increases as the coil compresses from free length (unloaded). This style ofspring is manufactured in an effort to soften the ride.
13. A coil spring that is cylindrical in overall shape and has closely spaced coils at one end and widely space coilsat the other end is called atruncated cone

AURLTD005 Diagnose and repair light vehicle suspension systemsVariable rate spring:Variable rate has a spring rate that increases as the coil compresses from free length. This style of spring ismanufactured in an effort to soften the ride. A true Variable rate coil will have minimal spacing between the coilwinds at the top and the spacing will grow and grow the further down you go on the coil. The second way tomake a Variable rate coil is with a varying wire diameter. We more often see the variation of distance betweenthe coil winds in the off-road world. They are ideal for a compromise between a spring stiff enough to do thework duty required and one soft enough to suck up the bumps of a rough road.16. Explain how the linear rate spring operates?
17. Explain the design and operation of the variable rate spring?
