THE TRADITIONAL SOLUTION
GOOD TO KNOW ABOUT REINFORCING LEAF SPRING KITS
- The kit provides linear spring rate: the vehicle will have harder suspension in case of riding without significant load. This solution is recommended only, if the vehicle is used constantly with significant load.
- Time of installation can take 2 - 4 hours. We recommend to do the installation in a service.
- Since the main spring leaf including spring eye remains unchanged, there is a certain limitation of spring force increase with this solution. Our leaf spring kits are designed such a way that spring rate is increased maximum by 20% - 40 %. This limitation is necessary in order to avoid breakage of spring eyes of the main spring leaves. In case of suspension needs to be enhanced more significantly (e.g doubling the spring rate) it can be done with an additional helper spring: see our Maxi-Load Rubber Helper Springs.
MAXI-LOAD® REINFORCEMENT LEAF SPRING KITS
Springtech Automotive offers own developed reinforcement kit solutions based on its core competence from IAM/OEM leaf spring production. Kits are available for commercial vehicles mainly up to 7,5 tons but special enhancement kits can be also supplied for heavy duty vehicles based on request.
Reinforcing spring leaves are tapered to parabolic profile in cased of application in parabolic springs. (Some of our competitors offer cheaper products without parabolic tapering, what reduces product life time by 50 % or more.)
All Springtech Automotive products are manufactured from quality spring steel, steel grade 51CrV4. Spring leaves are stress peened and painted.
