Carrying Heavy Loads? Here’s Why You Need SuperSprings

Carrying Heavy Loads? Here’s Why You Need SuperSprings

For heavy-duty vehicles that are designed to haul overbearing loads, it may be assumed that it is fully equipped to handle its load capacity. More often than not they are. This is usually sufficient for trucks that haul heavy loads on an occasional basis, but for industrial and even recreational vehicles, a little more suspension support is needed. To increase the longevity of your heavy equipment, especially if you are utilizing it on a consistent basis, the best thing you can do is install SuperSprings.

What are SuperSprings?

SuperSprings are a patented suspension device designed to supplement the leaf springs that connects to the axles on your vehicle. They are considered to be the helper spring to support the load capacity of a vehicle. What makes SuperSpring so unique is that its design has a roller system on the end of the shackles that reduces the rattle and noises most heavy towing vehicles may have due to the amount of strain and weight it is towing.

These helper springs have 3 main purposes:

  • Reduce sag
  • Reduce sway
  • Increase spring capacity

How Do They Work?

SuperSprings work on an as-needed basis. Whereas, the leaf springs are working every time there is an exceeded amount of weight added to a vehicle. With SuperSprings, they are installed with tension. The leaf springs are not. What this means is whenever weight is placed on your vehicle, the leaf springs begin to hold tension, which in turn, releases tension from the SuperSpring. This technique creates an overall equal amount tension between the leaf spring and the helper SuperSpring that delivers type of stability that reduces any sag or sway that a vehicle may have during movement.

How This Suspension Method Helps Your Truck

The last thing you want when towing heavy loads is to have your vehicle sway side to side on the highway. This is exactly what can happen if you don’t have SuperSprings installed on your vehicle. Even though a road appears flat, the landscape may not be. When hauling heavy loads, the weight is going to sway toward gravity. Having the best suspension method like the SuperSprings will help keep your truck level.

Support Your Work Vehicle with SuperSprings
