GMC Sierra OEM Leaf Springs at General Spring
The GMC Sierra is a very popular half-ton pickup truck, and if you have one, you will want to keep it in tip top shape to get the most from your investment. Of course, one of the most important parts of a well-functioning pickup truck is its suspension. Without a suspension that is functioning properly, your truck will have trouble carrying the loads you need it to move. This is precisely why it’s incredibly important to regularly monitor your suspension performance.
How Do You Monitor Your Suspension Performance?
One of the easiest ways to tell if your suspension is having issues is to look at your truck from the front and back and see if it sits lower on one side or the other. If so, you might have a sagging leaf spring on the side that is sitting lower.
After removing the wheels, take a closer look at the leaf springs, cleaning any dirt and grime with a wire brush if necessary. If you see a leaf has slipped, you might be able to put it back in place and tighten the clamps, but if you see cracks or excessive wear, then replacing the leaf springs is your best bet.
What to Do If You Need New Leaf Springs
If it has been determined that you need new leaf springs , make sure you purchase the right fit and model year for your truck. Not every truck is the same, so leaf springs differ between brands and even model years. Having the right fit is critical to bringing your truck back to factory standard.
If you are replacing your leaf springs, and it is earlier than expected, you might also want to consider installing heavier duty leaf springs that can handle a heavier load. You may have worn your leaf springs out early by overloading, and this can help alleviate this common problem for truck owners. The experts at General Spring can answer any questions you may have on making this improvement to your truck.
