If you are looking how to animate a spring, I made an tutorial. It is a little bit fake, but I don´t think that a "real" animation is possible.

The easiest way is:
- divide the spring in two parts (half length)
- twist these halfs into each other to change the length

Hello PAWAN!
Here is the link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XCpmU14xwAM
But I will remove it soon, and replace by something different. Remember it is more a FAKE n ot a real simulation.

Twisting the two springs in the Kinematic Workbench is only a fake. But AFAIK the simplest method:
- create a cylindrical joint between the axes of the two springs
- crate a point-curve joint between the springs
The upper spring is turning to change the hight.
