Run Your Chevy Silverado Like New with Leaf Springs Replacements
Your Chevy Silverado is a workhorse and always gets both you and your cargo where you need to go. While there’s no doubt you still love your truck, have you started to notice a bit of a sag or rough ride lately, especially when you have a heavy load? This might be the first sign of trouble with your suspension, and is something that should be looked at right away. Checking your suspension regularly ensures that it’s working at its peak potential at all times.
What If the Leaf Springs Sag?
A sagging suspension is a problem that needs to be addressed immediately. If left unattended you could have a failure of the leaf springs and your truck could bottom out on every bump, causing significant damage to the chassis. Look closely at the leaf springs located on the side where the truck sits lower and see if you can determine any problems. If you are lucky, the clamps may just be loose and a leaf may have slipped, which can be hammered back into place and the clamps tightened.
If there are other problems, such as worn leaves, stretched leaves, cracks or damage then replacing the leaf springs is the only logical course of action. When this is the case it’s best to contact a professional to make sure that you have the right parts for your pickup truck. The leaf springs for your Chevy Silverado will differ between truck capacity and even model year, so getting the right advice on which leaf spring to purchase will save you a lot of pain when you have removed the old leaf spring and the new leaf spring doesn’t fit, putting your truck out of commission.
Another thing to consider is how quickly your leaf springs have worn. If you are replacing your leaf springs after only a short time, maybe you are over stressing your suspension with the loads you are carrying. If this is the case, consider getting more heavy-duty leaf springs as replacements, or even talking to the team at General Spring about using SuperSprings on your Chevy Silverado truck.
