Motorcycle Shock Suspension Spring Seats & Collars

The compression spring around your shock absorber usually has an alignment seat or collar that sits at one end of the main spring with an inner lip sitting up inside the coil. It usually attaches at the bottom onto the spring retaining clip. It does three things:
The lip seats the spring concentrically around the damper so that there is an even space between the coils and the body casting and no rubbing.
The ring height can act as a spacer or shim to help set the pre load or adapt shorter springs to longer rear shocks. Read our buying guide on coil springs and preload to learn more.
The flat metal face acts as a washer which distributes the spring pressure evenly - making adjustments to the preload nuts much easier and smoother. Spreading a little anti-seize grease makes adjusting in future easier too.

Before you get started, read how to replace your motorbike's shock spring in our technical article first, and check out the installation guide we provide with every Teknik Motorcycle Shock Spring.

Some OEM coilovers put the hardware at top near the preload nuts so you can also find some spacers in the top preload nuts category, as well as the bottom preload nuts.
