may sound dumb but can anyone tell me if there is a difference between "coil springs" and "coil-over springs"?
are they the same thing?
or are all springs called coil springs? and "coil overs" are springs that surround struts and shocks?
i m asking bcuz i ordered a Bilstein BTS kit and the box says they are coil springs..
The BTS kit has coil springs like you have on the car now. Coil over springs cover the shocks and have collars to adjust the ride height. They are both "coil" springs. There is just a difference as to how they are placed. BTW, the standard springs on the strut is a "coil" spring as it doesnt have the ride height adjustment. If you want "coil over" Bilstein's PSS kit what you want.
