This is the first truck I've owned and trying to learn the suspension. It's old, has lots of repairs and modifications, so I'm assuming this whole setup is aftermarket. I've never seen a spring wrapped around the damper like this, unless it was an adjustable coilover. It obviously has spacers to lift the spring. The ride height is perfect, but the reason I ask is because the suspension is extremely rigid. Feels like it's completely seized up (maybe it is). Or maybe the last owner just bought a damper for a heavier truck. I was thinking maybe just take off the spring wrapped around the damper first to soften things up a bit. But obviously, that would be impossible if it's a coilover.
Any advice? Thanks in advance.
