I put on H&R progressive rate springs on a couple of weeks ago. I noticed that the closer (stiffer?), bottom coils on the front literally touch each other, one resting on top of another . Doesn't this completely defeat the purpose if having progressive rate springs when the progressive part doesn't spring at all?

Re: Are my springs supposed to do this?? (vduBen)

Those coils are called 'dead coils'.
Their only reason in life is to keep tension on the spring perch/hat when the shock is fully extended. Don't worry...you didn't get jipped.
They are progressive rate springs. Trust me.
