LEAF SPRINGS

This is our favorite subject!   We have the largest inventory of truck springs on Vancouver Island.  We stock everything from Jeep Cherokee springs to heavy duty equipment truck springs.  Heavy truck & trailer springs, travel trailer & boat trailer springs.  

Customs

Custom Leaf Springs are our specialty.  We can make custom springs for older (or newer) vehicles.   We generally have the specifications available to us but when we don't just bring us a sample and we can duplicate the spring for you.   Many times you might call a dealer first and find out that the springs are obsolete - no problem!  Call us and we'll get them (or make them) for you.   Ford, Chev, Dodge, Nissan, Toyota, Mazda - we stock all the most common light truck springs.
 


Leaf Springs - Repairs / Extra Leaves / proper construction


Repairs - an individual leaf in a spring pack can be replaced if broken or cracked as long as the leaf has not been broken too long and has not put extra stress on the remaining leaves.  We recommend having the leaf fit properly to the rest of the spring.   A leaf that has not been fit accurately will more than likely cause excess stress in the steel and cause premature breakage.   When repairing a spring or installing extra leaves we always install tip inserts at both ends of the leaves to reduce friction and prevent squeaking.  All leaves that we install are arched to fit to the spring to ensure that each leaf carries its fair share of the load.

Extra Leaves - adding an extra leaf is an economical way of increasing your truck spring capacity and or ride height.  The long full length leaf will give a better ride than a short leaf and reduce the chance of axle wrap.    But remember anything extra added to your leaf spring does not increase your vehicles gvwr.
