How Super Springs Increase Load Capacity

How Super Springs Increase Load Capacity

Vehicles with very heavy loads often have one problem that is not seen by others. That is the drastic difference in load on the suspension when the vehicle is loaded and empty. This may not seem like an important factor to consider, but if you have a very heavy suspension for large loads, this can cause problems when the load is absent and the vehicle rides too high causing improper maneuverability of the vehicle.

Likewise, if you only use lighter weight factory leaf springs on the vehicle, you can expose them to excess wear and potential damage when they are overloaded with an occasional heavy load. When you need to figure out what to do with different loads, it is best to work with experts who have been an automotive leaf spring and suspension authority since 1965, the team at General Spring.

What will Super Springs from General Spring do for You?

At General Spring we carry a line of products called Super Springs that are designed to be easily installed alongside your standard leaf springs. The design of these springs is to progressively absorb the excess load only when necessary and/or when the factory springs flatten out. When this happens the rollers at the end of the Super Springs automatically activate and engage to take the weight of the remaining load so that it does not cause excess stress and strain on the leaf springs that are already in place. Super Springs allow for optimal driving conditions you’re your vehicle is heavily or lightly loaded.

Super Springs are designed to match the existing leaf springs of a vehicle so they are available in the various lengths needed. They are available in heavy-duty, medium-duty and light-duty variations so that you can choose the right addition for your desired task. Increase the load to what you need without compromising on the performance and handling of your vehicle.
