The steering springs perform the function of centering the board during steering. This increases stability as the board will automatically steer straight without any input from the rider.
Spring Clicking - The steering springs can in some cases make a clicking noise when steering from side to side (generally most noticeable when making sharp turns). This behavior is normal as the ground end of the spring can catch the tabs on the steering plates. As the springs wear in over the course of the first 50-100 miles any clicking noise will generally be eliminated or reduced to a very minor click or go away all-together.
One helpful tip is to rotate any spring that is clicking with needle nose pliers and this will move the ground end of the spring to a different location to prevent further clicking.
