Nissan Frontier: Which Kind of Suspension is the Right One?

Nissan Frontier: Which Kind of Suspension is the Right One?The Nissan Frontier comes with a very robust stock suspension for heavy duty work, but not all trucks are used the same depending on the overall intent of the owner. If you are finding that you routinely need to overload your truck, you will be happy to know that there are options to increase the load capacity of your truck by improving the suspension. Whether you just need a suspension replacement, or a suspension upgrade, the team at General Spring can help you decide how to get more out of your Nissan Frontier pickup truck.

Information You Need to Know if you are Replacing your Leaf Spring

For a simple replacement of the leaf springs on a Nissan Frontier, you can have a few challenges. Even though the leaf springs remained the same size from 1998 until 2004, you still had many differences due to the truck model. Leaf springs differed between the 2-wheel drive 6- cylinder model and the 2-wheel drive 4-cylinder model, as well as the 4X4 model and the supercharged 4X4 model. After 2005, all you needed to consider was a difference between the regular duty springs and heavy duty springs, even though these springs would not fit older model trucks.

What Options Do You Have to Improve Your Suspension Capacity?

If you want to increase the load capacity of your suspension, there are a few simple additions that we can recommend if you do not want to install heavy-duty leaf springs, which include Timbrens and SuperSprings.

Timbrens can be easily installed by bolting them in place to absorb the excessive loads on your leaf springs. These hollow rubber springs increases stability, suspension and reduces sway while providing better load capacity. The rubber cushions simply absorb the road shock and automatically adjust for uneven loads, and with no airlines or fittings, they are easy to install and maintain.

SuperSprings are additional springs that bolt right over your existing leaf springs but do not add any unnecessary strain or stiffness. This product will only engage when the existing leaf springs reach their capacity, so your standard suspension is not affected during normal operation. SuperSprings are easily installed and require no maintenance, yet improve your ride handling by 30%
