Heavy Duty Coil
Springs: How to Increase the Capacity on Your Truck
A great way to increase the load capacity on your truck is
to install heavy-duty leaf springs. This is especially helpful for trucks that
haul more weight on the front end of the vehicle. Farm equipment, plowing
trucks, and recreational vehicles can especially benefit from coil springs.
Coil springs are designed to take on an enormous amount of
weight. As the truck picks up additional poundage, the coil springs compress.
The design of the coils allows all of the energy from the extra weight to
absorb it while still maintaining a relatively smooth ride. So, it would stand
to reason that if you were to install heavy-duty coil springs, your vehicle
would be able to take on a lot more weight, making it a more efficient work
The heavy-duty coil springs that General Spring, a
manufacturing distributor of coil springs and other automotive suspension parts,
are sold in pairs. The prices for these pairs range from $129.99 - $339.99 depending
on the make, model, and specific hauling needs. The load capacity varies. So,
it’s a good idea to know exactly what you plan on utilizing your vehicle for
before replacing them with just any kind of coil spring.
