In order for deflection to take place on a compression, extension or torsion spring, a load must be either applied or removed. The distance between the loaded length or position and the free or pre-loaded position is known as distance of travel. A traveled distance is exactly what deflection is. Whether it is pushed, pulled, or torqued. Spring deflection is deeply related to your spring’s rate.
