Best Chevy Silverado Suspension Upgrades

The Silverado is a popular line of full-size and heavy-duty pickup trucks that has been a staple of the Chevrolet lineup since 1998. Over two decades, these rugged trucks have earned an unparalleled reputation for handling the most demanding hauling challenges. They're the perfect trucks for transporting heavy loads, towing trailers or carrying tools and supplies.

As a proud Silverado owner, you drive your truck over difficult terrain and use it for work and play. While the vehicle itself can take the pounding, its suspension system can eventually wear out. Replacing worn or broken springs and other essential suspension components ensures a smooth, safe ride.

General Spring is your headquarters for everything you need to make the best suspension system upgrade for a Silverado. We carry a wide assortment of leaf springs, heavy-duty coil springs, SuperSprings and other parts and accessories. Trust our 50+ years of specialized expertise to deliver the most reliable, cost-effective solution for your truck.

Silverado Leaf Spring Upgrade




Leaf springs are the most commonly used springs because of their simple design and easy installation. They serve as a linkage to hold the axle in position, eliminating the need for separate linkages. We offer rear leaf springs that provide a significant towing upgrade for a Silverado 1500, 2500HD and other popular models. Front leaf springs are also available that can improve the handling of your truck. We feature leaf springs for various Silverado model years.

Heavy-Duty Chevrolet Silverado Coil Springs

If you're looking for a more powerful Chevy Silverado suspension system upgrade, consider installing heavy-duty coil springs. HD springs have shock absorbers mounted inside the spring unit for a smoother, more stable ride. They provide extra hauling capacity, which is ideal if you're transporting heavy loads. They're also maintenance-free, which saves time and labor. Our inventory includes HD coil springs for the 2007-2017 Silverado 1500 and GMC Sierra 1500 model years.

SuperSprings for Your Chevy Silverado

SuperSprings are revolutionary products that only engage when your factory leaf springs reach their maximum load capacity. You'll experience a smoother, more controlled ride under load conditions without squeaks, groans and rattles. Installing SuperSprings provides an instant Silverado rear suspension upgrade, increasing the truck's ability to handle and tow heavier loads. SuperSprings are simple to install, as you can bolt them onto existing leaf springs in less than an hour. We offer SuperSprings for various Silverado/Sierra 1500 and 2500 models.

SuperSprings are progressive in nature in that they work on an as-needed basis. The installed springs are under nominal tension even when the vehicle is unloaded. This is so there is no rattle or noise and the patented rollers will activate automatically.

As a vehicle with rear leaf springs comes under load the factory springs react as they are designed to. The center of the springs move vertically causing the overall leaves to flex and flatten out. This movement in the factory spring activates the SuperSpring through the rollers at the end of each leaf. Because the SuperSpring rollers aSupersprings Shacklere under tension, a movement in the factory spring causes them to move, seeking their new point of least resistance. This simple roller principal allows the SuperSprings to activate and deactivate automatically, free of any manual adjustment.

The SuperSprings are length specific to fit varying sized leaf springs. In addition the different lengths typically are manufactured in light, medium and heavy duty strengths. The sole adjustment on the SuperSprings is found in the roller shackles at the end of each leaf. The typical shackle has two bolt holes, as shown in the diagram below though some single hole and three holed shackles are used. The most common installation involves positioning all four rollers in the lower (furthest from the eye of the SuperSpring / closest to the ground) bolt holes. This ensures the least amount of preload tension on the SuperSprings and keeps the vehicle closest to its original factory ride conditions. Upper bolt holes may be used if additional lift is desired in the vehicle; if clearance from obstructions is required or if the installation is on an older vehicle with some fatigue in the springs.

SuperSprings enhance load carrying capacity, handling and towing. Do not load any vehicle beyond the manufacturers gross vehicle weight rating.
