Variable rate coil springs will improve the overall ride of light vehicles. A new computer program, developed by Chevrolet to simulate the operational characteristics of tapered wire and/or noncylindrical variable rate coil springs, has become an integral part of the design process. This analytical tool has provided new insight into the physics of variable rate, as well as constant rate, coil springs.
