Why Super Springs are
a Necessary for Heavy Loads
Super Springs can be considered the “Hulk” of the Add-a-Leaf
kit, but they are in no way to be confused with them. While
will support the existing leaf springs by a few pounds, Super Spring provides
maximum support for lumbering loads and strenuous jobs, improving ride handling
up to 30%.
What this means is that Super Springs are most advantageous
for industrial vehicles like cranes, trucks, or even a charter bus. When you
are operating a vehicle that has the duty of taking on tons of weight, consider
Super Springs for the best suspension solution.
What is a Super
A Super Spring
is a suspension system that is attached to your vehicle’s current leaf springs
that will provide added support
only when it’s needed. Unlike the
over-the-counter helper spring attachments, the Super Spring stands completely
on its own and is built for those industrial tasks that regular leaf springs
would otherwise flatten out at. When leaf springs flatten out, your vehicle
will start sagging. When your vehicle starts to sag, it can cause damage to the
backside of the vehicle as well as the front end due to the bouncing back and
forth because of the lack of suspension control.
How Exactly Do Super
The way it works is when a load is placed on at truck it
weighs down, causing the leaf springs to stretch or flatten out some. Because
the leaf springs are designed in a bow-like shape, the tension is increased, taking
in all of the weight of the load. As long as the leaf spring keeps some sort of
arch, it is performing its job. If the leaf spring flattens out completely,
they are no good.
Super Springs help prevent leaf springs from flattening out
based on the patented shackle with a dual roller system. The dual roller system
that will always spin and move as leaf spring stretches out, the roller from
the Super Spring is able to receive it, therefore absorbing the extra amount of
weight that the leaf spring would not otherwise be able to take.
Who Benefits from
Anyone whose vehicle is sagging from the rear end can
greatly benefit from Super Springs. Even if your vehicle isn’t used for
industrial purposes, Super Springs will provide a nice and smooth controlled
ride. With the help of Super Springs, your car, truck, van, SUV or recreational
vehicle will be able to ride at an even level no matter how heavy of a load it
Where Can You Find
Your Super Springs?
Some vehicle operators and mechanics prefer Super Springs
because they’re just easier to install. Supplementing leaf springs with other
support leaves can often take hours to install, but with Super Springs, the
installation can take as little as one hour.
