Leaf Springs



Leaf springs are a type of shock absorbing spring utilized primarily in commercial and larger non-commercial vehicles such as SUVís, Pick-up Trucks, and Vans. The biggest advantage provided to larger vehicles through the use of leaf springs is the increased load capacity.

Leaf springs spread the weight over a larger area of the chassis which allows for a much greater degree of weight distribution.

Leaf springs are considered to be the oldest form of vehicle springs and were being used even before the creation of modern day cars and trucks. Leaf springs have been in existence since mid-evil times and were commonly used on carriages to provide a smoother ride.

Leaf Spring Benefits

The use of leaf springs over the more common coil springs provides a number of key improvements for the driver. The great distribution of load over the vehicle allows for a greater amount of weight to be loaded on the vehicle causing as large of an effect on the performance and drive-ability of the vehicle.

They also offer superior control over vehicle roll which has the benefit of providing a smoother and more accurate ride on roads which are poorly maintained or when driving in off road conditions.
