to Consider When Choosing Leaf Spring Suspension
Over time leaf springs will
sag, break and crack. Eventually, they need to be replaced. This is simply an
unfortunate certainty of leaf springs. The steel in the leaf springs can
stretch and the packs themselves can become loose and lead to problems with the
suspension system itself. If you find yourself in need of replacement leaf
springs there are a few things to consider for the best results.
Stock Leaf Springs or Heavy Duty?
You may be replacing your
leaf springs because they have stretched over time and you just want to get
back to your vehicle’s original condition. If so, General Spring has a large
for most cars and trucks. By putting these
springs in, you will return to stock condition and have many years of safe and
comfortable driving ahead of you.
If however, you want to
increase the load capacity of your truck, General Spring has
heavy-duty leaf springs that will do just that. By upgrading to heavy-duty springs, you can
carry more in your truck, car, van, or SUV, which means fewer trips for you. We
even carry SuperSprings, which are additional attachments to the standard design
leaf spring to provide added capacity and load tolerance.
Not All Leaf Springs are Created Equal
At General Spring we have
learned a few tips over the years on how to improve leaf springs for better
performance above and beyond what is require by the OEMs. One major
modification we have implemented over the years is an improved clip design that
incorporates metal riveted clips with clip bolts. By using this clip design you
get extra strength on the clips, which eliminate the squeaking that sometimes occurs
in this section of the leaf spring. This improvement over OEM specifications
sets General Spring leaf springs apart from the competition, even with the best
prices in the industry.
