About Suspension Coil Springs
A Citroen suspension coil spring is a strong metal spring which is located in the front of the vehicle. Its primary function is to absorb the shock transferred to the vehicle when it drives over bumps in the road. The Citroen suspension coil spring works by compressing when the vehicle drives over the bump. It’s this compression that diffuses the amount of pressure that is experienced by the vehicle and smooths the ride.
Citroen suspension coil springs each have a rating, and it is important that if you replace a Citroen suspension coil spring you replace it with one of the same rating. If one Citroen suspension coil spring is damaged, both the coil springs in the vehicle should be replaced to ensure that the vehicle is driving with two matching rate springs. It is also likely that if one Citroen suspension coil spring is damaged, the other is also damaged.
If a Citroen suspension coil spring breaks, you are likely to hear it snap. This can be confirmed by examining the spring. Tyres can jump or wear unevenly if your vehicle has a broken spring.
- Citroën was the first company to offer credit for buying cars! André Citroën registered a consumer credit company for the sole purpose of providing car buyers with the credit they'd need to buy one of his cars!
- In 1968, Citroën bought control of the Italian car firm Maserati. That purchase led to the design of the Citroën GT, which came with hydro-pneumatic suspension and a V6 engine. It did well in terms of sales, but production of the last version, the DS23 Pallas Electronique, was stopped in 1975 after the '73 oil crisis.
- After WWII, Michelin owned Citroën and wanted to make a car for the people. The Citroën 2CV was designed for driving on French roads, so it was incredibly sturdy, and tests were carried out by driving through ploughed fields with trays of eggs on the seats. Although changes in design happened, some version of the Citroën 2CV was in production from 1949 all the way through to 1990.
- The Citroën 2CV Safari had some crazy extra features. It was a four-wheel-drive vehicle, and Citroën decided that four-wheel drive meant that it would be better to have two engines...one at the front and one at the back. The fuel cap sticks out of the driver's door, and the tank was right under the driver's seat!
- At a recent count, Citroën cars have appeared in just under 1,800 films, with the most famous being the Citroën used in the James Bond film, For Your Eyes Only. That film even had a tie-in car, a special edition Citroën that was emblazoned with the 007 logo and optional bullet hole stickers for the windows.
