Suspension Question: Springs

I am not sure that this is true, but I was told this afternoon that springs will increase your turning radius. I am having a hard time picturing this.

I'm not a expert but I don't see how it would. Maybe spacers would but I doubt springs will.

I can't possibly see how springs would affect your ratio in the steering rack.

Springs affect your camber curve and ride height.

Exactly. Like I said, had a most difficult time seeing how this could be the case.

Thank you Bogdan.
