Coil Bind

Also a Newbie and would like to know the meaning of binding or was it explained in an earlier post

"Binding" or "Coil Bind" is when the spring compresses down on it's self so much that there is not more compression left, and you hit solid spring.

It literally looks like this:

This only occurs with compression that is more than 6 inches. I experience it sometimes, and it's not horrific. I live in SoCal so the roads aren't bad. If you if in a place where the roads are all jacked, then I would pass on these if I were you.
