Dodge Ram Leaf Springs: What You Need to Know
One of the most
popular trucks in North America is the Dodge Ram, having approximately over
500,000 purchased in 2015 alone. With so many of these trucks on the road doing
a lot of heavy hauling and towing, it’s inevitable that they will need
replacement leaf springs from time to time. That is why the team at General
Spring carries a variety of leaf springs that will fit your Dodge Ram,
regardless of the make or model.
Bigger Trucks Need Larger Leaf Springs
It goes without
saying that a bigger truck with more capacity needs a larger leaf spring to
carry its load. One of the benefits of the Dodge
Ram is that it is available in three sizes: 1,500; 2,500; and 3,500, and we
carry the leaf springs for all of these models. Since the Dodge Ram comes in a
half ton, ¾ ton, and 1-ton capacity, we’re confident that we have the leaf
springs you need for each of these models.
Even within one
particular style, we can supply options for greater carrying capacity. For
instance, with the half ton Dodge Ram 1500, we offer the leaf spring option of
a 4-leaf pack with a capacity of 1,700 lbs., or a 5-leaf pack with a capacity
of 2,200 lbs. Whichever Dodge Ram model you have, it’s worth it to call the
experts at General Spring to determine the right leaf spring for your driving
and towing needs.
Other Considerations for Best Suspension
While truck capacity
is one thing to consider, another important consideration is the model year.
The Dodge Ram has been around since 1972, and the fit of the leaf springs has
changed significantly over time. If you are dealing with an older model, we
carry the leaf springs you need, while other leaf spring manufacturers might
have trouble getting you the necessary parts.
difference to pay attention to on the Ram models is the option for 2-wheel
drive or 4- wheel drive. Both models have 4-leaf spring model with a capacity
of 2,800 lbs. and a 5-leaf spring model with a capacity of 3,300 pounds, but
you need to make sure you get the right leaf spring to fit your truck.
