Is it time for new leaf springs?


For the type of commercial and heavy duty trucks we work on, that last thing you want to do is find out you need new leaf springs when it’s too late. Having healthy leaf springs should be a top priority, but unfortunately goes overlooked until a problem arises, which in turn leads to more problems. At Rocky Mountain Spring & Suspension in Colorado Springs, CO 80907 it is our commitment and duty to ensure we educate all heavy duty truck operators on various topics related to the safe functioning of their vehicles.

Here’s three ways to tell your leaf springs may need replacement:

1) Look for Cracks – If you find any cracks, breakage or missing pieces, it’s time for new leaf springs

2) Is Your Vehicle Unusually Bouncy or Swaying? – Leaf springs are designed to absorb bumps to create a smooth ride, which in turn prevent swaying and unusual bouncing.

3) Can Your Vehicle Handle the Weight of a Heavy Load? – This is one of the easiest ways to determine if your leaf springs need replaced. If you notice the back of your truck sags after it’s loaded, that means the leaf springs aren’t upholding the weight any longer.

For over 35 years, Rocky Mountain Springs & Suspension has been the leading provider in Colorado Springs for both service and parts when it comes to leaf spring repair, replacement and installation. We guarantee our work and it’s our commitment to ensure you get back on the road safely and quickly.
