MAXI-LOAD® helper spring: the air spring alternative

An additional spring (hollow rubber helper spring) is installed between axle and vehicle frame. The helper spring works together with factory leaf spring as a complementary suspension (spring assistant). It works like an air spring providing the same spring characteristics. This solution has several advantages:1. Easy installation. 2. Simple solution in comparison to air springs (no air leak, maintenance free, etc.). 3. Progressive spring rate: no harsh contact with axle. 4. Spring rate can bee adjusted.

MAXI-LOAD® air spring

Air springs, together with leaf spring suspensions are recommended, if vehicle height has to be adjusted regularly. Since this product is the most sophisticated and expensive suspension enhancement solution, we only recommend this to high-tech fans, who will really make sure that the system is regularly maintained and air pressure is constantly monitored. Installation needs high attention and this system needs TÜV, SGS or similar product certification in the EU.

MAXI-LOAD® leaf spring reinforcing kit

This is a traditional leaf spring enhancement solution. However, in this case several disadvantages have to be taken into account: 1. The installation is a rather big work since the the rear axle has to be disassembled from the factory spring. This requires certain service tools and knowledge. 2. The kit is quite heavy and will increase the vehicle total weight. 3. The suspension will maintain its linear spring rate.

MAXI-LOAD® leaf spring lifting kit

Leaf spring lifting kits provide cost efficient solution, if vehicle has to be lifted even in empty condition. Or it might happen that the leaf spring lost its stiffness after some years, therefore the rear of the vehicle swags even with normal load. In this case the vehicle is lifted with an adjustable spacer that can be set to 20 mm, 40 mm or 60 mm according to preference. The corresponding longer U-Bolts are supplied in the kit.

MAXI-LOAD® helper coil spring

Many light commercial vehicles, especially below 3 tons total weight, have coil springs on the rear axle instead of leaf springs. In such cases a helper coil springs, also known as auxiliary springs or spring assisters can be mounted inside the original coil springs. They help the original springs to carry the total weight. Certain vehicle suspensions can not be upgraded this way; in such cases complete new reinforced coil spring sets can be supplied.

MAXI-LOAD® coil spring enhancer

TPE (Thermoplastic Elastomer) helper spring is installed into the coil spring. Advantages: 1. Easy installation without removing the wheels or coil spring. 2. Maintenance free. 3. Most cost efficient solution to upgrade a coil spring. 4. Can be used both on rear coil spring and front coil spring depending on vehicle. 5. Perfect complimentary solution for front coil springs, if rear suspension has been upgraded in any form.

WE REALLY UNDERSTAND ABOUT VEHICLE SUSPENSION TECHNOLOGY

We are one of the leading IAM (independent after market) leaf spring manufacturer and distributor in Europe. Our product range covers all European commercial vehicle leaf springs including heavy duty trucks, trailers and light commercial vehicles such as vans and pick ups. Should you be interested in our product range, please click here.

Our know how originates from this core business and based on this we are able to develop efficient suspension enhancement solutions both for coil spring- and leaf spring suspensions. This makes us really unique on the European IAM suspension market.

Our approach is that factory coil- and leaf springs should not be replaced or modified, if possible. Our enhancement solutions are the optimal complimentary products to factory springs, which is the most cost efficient concept for our Customers. However, in some cases, it's not possible to enhance factory suspensions due to special design restrictions; in such cases we offer complete new spring solution but still on affordable prices.

We use different materials and technologies according to suspension applications. Whether it's spring steel, natural vulcanised rubber or TPE (thermoplastic elastomer), we use first class quality materials for all of our products. This way our products can collaborate perfectly with factory suspensions for a long-long time. We offer 3 - 5 years warranty to our suspension enhancement products depending on product category and application.
