Leaf Spring Repair Replacement

Leaf springs play an integral role in your truck’s suspension system. The purpose of leaf springs is to prevent the truck from slouching in the back when you haul heavy loads. Leaf springs keep the truck balanced and the tires level throughout each ride — even when you accelerate, brake and drive over speed bumps.

LEAF SPRINGS ARE A KEY COMPONENT OF YOUR VEHICLE’S SUSPENSION SYSTEM

Leaf Springs are key components of your vehicle’s and trailer’s suspension system and provide support for a smooth, reliable ride. Exposure to road salt and harsh elements, carrying heavy loads and driving on rough roads can all cause corrosion or damage that weakens a spring’s structure. After countless miles on the road, it’s inevitable that there may come a time when this support system needs repair.

Pro Tip

HOW TO CLEAN LEAF SPRINGS ON YOUR TRUCK

One thing you can do to extend the life expectancy of leaf springs is to regularly clean them. Cleaning leaf springs helps remove debris and grime that gets stuck between the leaves, preventing excess wear and corrosion. Leaf springs typically become caked with grease and grime, so cleaning them will require a wire bristle brush and a spray-able degreasing fluid. You will also need to wear gloves and goggles to provide protection from debris and cleaning agents.
