Coilovers are a spring and strut combo. It is simply a threated Spring seat placed over a strut. The threads alot of height adjustment, up or down. Im sure someone will offer a more technical def.

There are actually two types of coilovers.....slip on types (junk IMHO for ricers that want to slam their car for shows) and threaded body type like the Bilstein PSS9, H&R, Koni, LEDA, DMS, etc.

The shocks on the back are simply a threaded spring perch, as the spring isn't sitting over or on the shock assembly.
