Best Ford F150 Suspension Upgrades

Ford F-Series light and medium-duty trucks have been the best-selling pickups in the United States for more than 40 years. The F150 is known for its innovative and advanced engine, rugged frame and excellent fuel efficiency. It's also a powerful hauling machine that's ideal for towing and carrying heavy loads.

While these reliable, hard-working trucks will serve you well for many years, their suspension system can eventually wear out. A faulty suspension leads to a rougher ride and could create unsafe driving conditions.

If it's time for a Ford F150 suspension upgrade, General Spring has what you need. We carry a wide variety of leaf springs, and have been America's leaf spring authority for more than 50 years. Other options include heavy-duty coil springs, SuperSprings and suspension system accessories. Whether you want to make an F150 suspension upgrade for towing or improve the ride and safety of your pickup, you've come to the right place.

F150 Leaf Spring Upgrades




Leaf springs are the most common spring types due to their simple, straightforward design. They're ideal for driving in stop-and-go traffic, navigating speed bumps and traversing gravel roads. Their ability to support heavy loads makes leaf springs a good choice for an F150 rear suspension upgrade. Our inventory includes leaf springs dating back to the early days of the F150, as well as hardware such as hangers and U-bolts.

Heavy-Duty Coil Springs for the F150

Heavy-duty coil springs offer the best F150 suspension upgrade for trucks with sagging front ends and under-sprung bodies. Rear HD coil springs provide additional lift and support, while front springs are beneficial for trucks with heavier front ends. They're typically the only suspension system solution for trucks with shock absorbers mounted inside the coil spring. General Spring carries heavy-duty coil springs for 1980-1996 pickups (except for models with dual shocks).

Ford F150 SuperSprings

SuperSprings are innovative suspension system products that are used in conjunction with leaf spring assemblies. They sit over the springs and only engage when the underlying units reach their load capacity. SuperSprings provide enhanced hauling, and they're the ideal F150 suspension upgrades for towing. Their unique design eliminates groans, squeaks and other irritating noises for a quieter ride. We feature F150 SuperSprings suspension kits for various models from 1973-2015.

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.
