What Are the Best Leaf Springs or Coil Springs for Mudding?
If you are
using your truck for mudding or off-roading, a factory installed suspension is
just not going to cut it! For mudding, you want a suspension that will sit high
and absorb the bumps that come with the big hills and sudden drops that are
common when you’re taking your truck off-road. Having a heavy-duty suspension
upgrade will prevent your axle from bottoming out, hitting your chassis and
either causing damage, or an uncomfortable ride for you and your passengers.
But what are the best suspension products to make your mudding experience the
best it can be?
Leaf Springs: The Backbone of the Suspension System
will have the invaluable
as the main item used to absorb a load, so it
is only logical that you can turn here to improve the load capacity of the
suspension system. By replacing the factory leaf springs with heavy-duty leaf
springs, you can quite easily increase the load capacity, improving the
springiness of your suspension and thus improving the ride of your truck when
the truck you are using, there are super heavy-duty leaf springs available that
have a variety of different load capacities. It’s important to make sure you
purchase the right heavy-duty leaf spring for your truck.
Coil Springs: Heavy Duty Additions to the Leaf Spring
thought for improving the suspension for off-roading applications is the
addition of coil springs behind the leaf springs. These will add quite a bit of
tension and capacity to the suspension, and will add to the capacity of the
existing leaf springs, helping to absorb the shocks of driving over rough
can easily add significant capacity to each
leaf spring to help increase the ability and versatility of your suspension.
to note that heavy-duty coil springs are mostly used for farm use, or work
trucks and can greatly increase the rigidness of the ride, which means they may
not be the best choice for a mudding vehicle.
