The Importance of Leaf Springs

The Importance of Leaf Springs

Leaf springs are an integral part of the vehicle’s suspension system. They are installed to help support the entire weight of the car or truck. Leaf springs also help maintain the tire’s grip on the road and regulate the wheelbase lengths when it is speeding up or slowing down. To control the height of the ride and axle damping leaf springs are very important.

These parts are susceptible to wear and tear which is why people would want to have them replaced. Either the leaf springs wear out and begin to sag, lowering the chassis of the vehicle or the leaf spring is cracked and broken. Oftentimes people also prefer to upgrade their leaf springs to one that is heavy duty to help increase the support and keep the vehicle safer. However, leaf spring replacement is not something anyone can do. You need to take your car to a professional to have them installed.

Central Spring Service has years of experience in truck suspension repair and maintenance. Our experienced shop technicians can tell just by looking at the vehicle whether or not it requires leaf spring replacement. We can put the leaf springs together or straighten them out. Our technicians ensure the vehicle is at the standard height by using the proper tools. The leaf spring replacement services include complete inspection, installation, and replacement of the leaf springs.

If you require leaf springs of a different height, either higher ones for the truck or lower ones to make the car’s stance more specific, we can do it all. You only need to specify and we can correct the height of the leaf springs we are replacing on your vehicle. However, it is recommended to not go too high or too low from the standard height since that can result in complications with the steering or suspension.

Broken leaf spring replacement is a relatively easy task and for our mechanics, it takes only a short while to complete. Once we have identified the problem and asked you the height you require we can complete it within a few hours. We offer leaf spring replacement for all types of heavy-duty vehicles such as dump trucks, fire trucks, and loading vans. We even have replacement leaf springs of all vehicle brands and models at our store. To get a quote on our service call us now and our customer service representatives will be ready to help.
