Ford Excursion Leaf Spring Replacement

Ford Excursion Leaf Spring ReplacementYour Ford Excursion is your workhorse, and you want to make sure that your suspension is working at peak condition to prevent damage to your vehicle’s body. If you are having problems with the amount of capacity that you can carry, you will want to inspect your suspension and potentially replace your leaf springs if they are worn, cracked or broken. When you need the right parts for your Ford Excursion suspension, the most obvious place to turn is General Spring.

How Do I Tell if there is a Problem with My Leaf Springs?

One of the best ways to check for a problem with your suspension is to park your vehicle on a level surface and look at the front and back of the vehicle. If you find that one side of the vehicle is sitting lower than the other, you might have a problem with the leaf springs on that side of the truck. If you are finding that your vehicle is bottoming out on large bumps, it is best to remove the wheels and take a closer look at the leaf springs, bolts, hangers and clips.

Clean all of your suspension components with a wire brush as needed to perform a thorough inspection. If hangers and clips have become loose then you might be able to re-position the leaves with a hammer and tighten everything up to hold the leaves in place. However, if you find that the leaves are cracked or worn, then a replacement is likely.

Not All Leaf Springs are Created Equal

Make sure that you get the correct leaf springs for your vehicle. In fact, the size of the leaf spring you need can differ from one model year to the next, so check that you have the right equipment to fit your vehicle. One thing to consider, if your leaf springs are worn or cracked before their expected life, you may be exceeding the load capacity of the springs. Look into replacing the springs with a properly fitted heavy-duty spring to prevent this problem from reoccurring.
