Help Prevent Suspension Issues by Regularly Inspecting Your Leaf Springs
Semis, buses, RVs, trailers, and light and medium duty trucks carry heavy loads that place an extra burden on axles and other vehicle components. To prevent damage, these types of vehicles are typically equipped with leaf springs in addition to the standard coil spring suspension.
Coil springs serve an essential function by maintaining proper vehicle control and alignment, and leaf springs help protect your semi truck’s axles by absorbing shock from heavy loads and uneven roads. Though these parts are made from durable steel and built to last for several years, leaf and coil springs can wear down over time due to corrosion and general wear-and-tear.
Worn or corroded springs not only affect how your truck or semi drives and carries loads but can impact other parts of your vehicle such as the tires, alignment, and suspension. Because of this, it’s always best to have your leaf springs and coil springs inspected during routine repair and maintenance visits.
How to Know When It’s Time for Leaf Spring Repair or Replacement
Road salt can cause corrosion that compromises the strength of leaf springs and high-demand hauling and uneven loads can cause premature wear. If you notice a change in the way your truck or trailer distributes weight or if there is a change of drive or steering, it’s time to have your springs checked.
