Truck Equipment Perfect for Surviving Harsh Winters

Truck Equipment Perfect for Surviving Harsh WintersNo one likes winter driving! Steering through snow and ice, delayed stopping and slipping and sliding on an icy road are not much fun. Even when the road is well plowed and salted it can still be treacherous to drive. Even with a large truck with the option of 4-wheel drive you can run into problems, because when all four wheels are sliding on the ice, the driving is still not improved.

However, the road salt, which is the main catalyst in this weather, can take a toll on our cars, trucks, vans and SUVs. Salty spray can leave a corrosive coating on the undercarriage of a truck, which if left unattended can lead to rusting of the metal and suspension system equipment is no different. It is important to take the care needed for this equipment to clean off this residue.

Winter Resistance: Not all Suspension Equipment is Created Equal

At General Spring we know that using the right leaf springs can prolong the life of your suspension system and prevent problems when driving. That is why we carry equipment that is built to take the punishment needed:

Ford F350 Super Duty Leaf Springs, rear leaf spring (6 leaves)

Measuring 66 1/2” overall with a center bolt, these super duty leaf springs are 3” wide with a pack thickness of 3 1/2”. For greater capacity these leaf springs come packed with 6 leaves (5/1) for a large capacity of 5,000 pounds. These heavy-duty spring replacements work great to correct sag, leaning and sway seen in old springs. The leaf spring pack includes tip inserts to prevent squeaking, reducing friction and eliminating shear point from metal on metal contact. These Super Duty Leaf Springs are made to help prevent the leaf springs from shifting sideways. Bushings are included with these leaf springs. However, note that they are sold per side, so you need to order 2 for a pair.
