Significance of Spring angle correction factor.
If your spring is mounted at an angle you will need to consider that in your spring calculations. Measure the angle of your spring from vertical in degrees. The greater the installed angle, the stiffer the spring rate must be to support the same weight. First, determine the spring needed for the application if the spring is installed straight up. Then, to compensate for installations at different angles, find your ACF using the formula above, and divide your straight mounted spring rate by your Angle Correction Factor (ACF).
How to Calculate Spring angle correction factor?
Spring angle correction factor calculator uses Spring angle correction factor = cos(Angle of spring/shock absorber from vertical) to calculate the Spring angle correction factor, Spring angle correction factor is cosine of the angle of the spring/shock absorber with vertical when viewed from front view of the car. Spring angle correction factor is denoted by cosθ symbol.
How to calculate Spring angle correction factor using this online calculator? To use this online calculator for Spring angle correction factor, enter Angle of spring/shock absorber from vertical (θ) and hit the calculate button. Here is how the Spring angle correction factor calculation can be explained with given input values -> 0.866025 = cos(0.5235987755982).
