Inspecting and Replacing Leaf Springs and Other Suspension Components
Leaf springs help reduce wear on a truck’s axles and coil spring suspension system by absorbing the shock from driving on uneven roads or carrying extremely heavy loads. They are made from durable carbon steel and are commonly used on semis, buses, RVs, and light and medium duty trucks.
Even though they are built for strength and durability, road conditions and everyday wear can cause leaf springs to corrode, split or crack, making them less effective. This wear can be further accelerated by carrying loads that are too heavy for your leaf springs or by failing to clean and inspect them on a regular basis. Driving on worn or corroded springs impacts the way your vehicle handles and can damage tires, alignment, and suspension
You can help prevent these issues and extend the life of your suspension system by inspecting your truck’s leaf springs and coil springs inspected whenever you bring your truck in for scheduled maintenance.
When to Replace or Repair Your Leaf Springs
Corrosion and wear can eventually compromise the strength of your leaf springs. If you notice a change in your truck’s steering or the way your truck or trailer distributes weight, it’s time to have your springs inspected or replaced.
