A Leaf Spring to Increase Load Capacity
Many vehicle applications
require you to increase the load capacity on your suspension system, and there
are many different ways this can be done. One of the most common ways is to
replace the existing leaf springs, which are in perfectly good condition, with
a new heavy-duty leaf spring bundle to deal with the heavier loads. While this
option is easy to implement, it can also become quite costly.
In addition to the expense of
adding the new leaf springs, this option can also be wasteful since you are
discarding the old factory leaf springs even if they are not worn, saggy or
broken. Wouldn’t it be better to add to a vehicle’s existing leaf springs in
order to improve the load capacity? This is exactly what Add A Leaf kits will
do for you.
What is an Add A Leaf?
The Add A
kits are designed to increase the leaf spring
capacity on a car, van, truck or SUV in an easy-to-install and more economical
way than replacing the healthy existing leaf springs. By adding an additional
long, full size leaf to the existing leaf stack, you not only increase the
capacity, but also raise the height of the vehicle.
Here is a type of Add A Leaf
kit you might be looking for:
