Run Your Chevy Silverado Like New with Leaf Springs
Silverado is a workhorse and always gets both you and your cargo where you need
to go. While there’s no doubt you still love your truck, have you started to
notice a bit of a sag or rough ride lately, especially when you have a heavy
load? This might be the first sign of trouble with your suspension, and is
something that should be looked at right away. Checking your suspension
regularly ensures that it’s working at its peak potential at all times.
What If the Leaf Springs Sag?
suspension is a problem that needs to be addressed immediately. If left
unattended you could have a failure of the leaf springs and your truck could
bottom out on every bump, causing significant damage to the chassis. Look
closely at the leaf springs located on the side where the truck sits lower and
see if you can determine any problems. If you are lucky, the clamps may just be
loose and a leaf may have slipped, which can be hammered back into place and
the clamps tightened.
If there are
other problems, such as worn leaves, stretched leaves, cracks or damage then
replacing the leaf springs is the only logical course of action. When this is
the case it’s best to contact a professional to make sure that you have the
right parts for your pickup truck. The leaf springs for your Chevy Silverado
will differ between truck capacity and even model year, so getting the right
advice on which leaf spring to purchase will save you a lot of pain when you
have removed the old leaf spring and the new leaf spring doesn’t fit, putting
your truck out of commission.
to consider is how quickly your leaf springs have worn. If you are replacing
your leaf springs after only a short time, maybe you are over stressing your
suspension with the loads you are carrying. If this is the case, consider
getting more heavy-duty leaf springs as replacements, or even talking to the
team at General Spring about using SuperSprings on your Chevy Silverado truck.
