Stock Conical (Tapered) Springs Definition-

A cone shaped compression spring that has a tapered body with a large outer diameter at the base and a small outer diameter a the top. These stock conical (tapered) springs are made this way to provide stability when a regular compression spring buckles or bends. Stock conical (tapered) springs are also used to provide more travel. If the coils are correctly designed, the spring will have a telescope effect; making the spirals go one inside the other, thus having a minimal solid height.
