Shock absorbers and leaf springs help keep your vehicle stable and comfortable. Shock absorbers absorb bumps and vibrations from the road, reducing stress on other parts of the truck's suspension system. Leaf springs provide extra support for axles, allowing them to flex a bit when driving over rough terrain, so you don't feel every bump or dip in the road.
With adequate maintenance and repair of these components, your ride can become comfortable, reduce fuel efficiency, and increase wear on other suspension parts. Red Dot Truck Service is here to help with your shock & leaf spring repair needs!
The most common cause of broken leaf springs is overloading. Leaf springs are made to support a certain weight; when they exceed this capacity, they can buckle under the strain and break. This can be caused by hauling heavy loads or adding additional weight, such as installing a trailer hitch or bumper. Thus, staying within the recommended weight capacity for your vehicle's leaf springs is important.
Corrosion from salt water, dirt, mud, and debris can build up on your suspension system and cause them to rust and corrode over time. This corrosion weakens the metal components and can lead to premature wear and tear, which will eventually cause your leaf springs to break. Regular inspections should be performed to identify signs of corrosion.
Finally, age is another factor that contributes to broken leaf springs. Over time, metal components become worn down due to normal usage and eventually become too weak to support the load they were designed for. Replacing worn-down parts in a timely manner is important to ensure that your suspension system remains in good working condition for as long as possible.
Leaf spring failure is something that no one wants their vehicle to experience, but unfortunately, it happens more often than most people realize. You can keep your vehicle running safely and efficiently by understanding what causes these failures and taking steps towards preventing them through proper maintenance and loading practices.
At Red Dot Truck Service, our technicians inspect each component thoroughly before beginning repairs. We first examine all bushings and bolts associated with shocks or leaf springs to ensure they are securely tightened before moving on to other components. If any of these elements appear loose or worn out, they will be replaced as needed before continuing with repairs.
After inspecting each component individually, we test-ride the vehicle to check for abnormal noises or vibrations that may indicate a problem with either part. We also check for proper alignment between all parts to ensure everything is properly installed according to factory specifications. Once any damaged components have been identified, we use genuine manufacturer parts to replace them with precision and accuracy.
