These springs are designed to meet stock VW specs for vehicle ride height, alignment and shock valving. They are only moderately stiffer and taller than stock, all still within VW specs.
The Schwenk Vanagon Springs made for the 2WD Vanagon were designed to deliver optimum suspension travel and stability on a westy loaded with an average amount of camping cargo and several passengers. The springs cure the mushy, kneeling feel the stock springs have, while at the same time providing improved cornering and much-improved stability in windy conditions.
Chrome Silicon Steel
The springs are made of Chrome Silicon pre-tensioned steel. Chrome Silicon is the best material available for automotive springs primarily because it does not sag like other spring steel does, but also because it can be wound to closer tolerances as well, meaning more accurate and consistent spring rates across the manufacturing process.
The springs are straight wound and are moderately stiffer than stock. Schwenk tested three sets of prototypes in developing these springs before settling on a spring rate. The goal was to get rid of the ill effects of the too-soft stock springs while keeping the suspension responsive and supple.
An empty 2WD Vanagon will have a ride height with these particular Schwenk Spring of roughly 17 1/4″, measuring from the center of the wheel / axle to the lower lip of the fender. Ride heights will vary with different van configurations.
The ride height these springs provide is designed to deliver optimal suspension travel and ground clearance. By “optimal,” he means the height is designed to ensure full use of the full range of suspension travel, as designed by VW, without topping out due to excessive ride-height, or requiring ball-joint extenders.
