but it can also make it difficult to carry loads safely. At General Spring,
we have a variety of F-450 and F-550 leaf springs that will perfectly fit
your truck and help you keep it running at its best.
About the Ford F-450 and F-550
The Ford F-series has a long history dating back to 1948. From the first
generation of F-1 pickups to the introduction of the Super Duty models, the
F-450 and F-550 helped bridge the gap between Ford's pickup trucks and
large medium-duty F-650 and F-750 models. These models helped push Ford's
Super Duty models into the Class 5 truck market.
The F-450 and F-550 Super Duty trucks have various exterior features,
including extended front bumpers and front fenders. These truck models also
have chassis cabs for commercial upfitters and are largely marketed toward
When Do You Need a Leaf Spring Upgrade?
If you use an F-450 or F-550 for work, where you're constantly hauling

its leaf springs are in good working condition. Whether a leaf spring
breaks or simply endures wear and tear or overloading, it's a good idea to
be aware of the signs that a leaf spring could give out.
