Why Do We Use Leaf Springs for Heavier Vehicles?
A leaf spring, or a carriage spring, is a simple type of spring usually utilized for wheeled vehicles. Also, it is one of the oldest sorts of springing in medieval times. One the advantages of a leaf spring over a regular spring, which is helical, is that the leaf spring’s end might be directed along a specific path. Leaf springs for heavier vehicles can be fixed to the frame, or it can be fixed at one end directly, with the frontage normally fixed through a bind, which is a small swinging arm. The bind takes up the inclination of the leaf spring to lengthen if compressed. This causes the supple springiness.
When to replace the leaf springs
While you're cleaning these suspension parts, this is also the good time to check and see if they need to be replaced. Take a closer look at each spring and see if it's showing the following signs:
A leaf spring that's significantly flatter than the others - This usually means that your vehicle has a pronounced tilt either to the left or right side. If the sag is significant or is very obvious, replace the worn-out leaf spring as soon as possible.
Fractured spring - Cracks or fractures can't be welded, so you have to get a new spring if the old one is showing these signs.
Severely corroded hardware - Shackle pins, nuts, and u-bolts connecting each spring should be free from rust. If these parts are showing severe corrosion, it's time to invest in new springs.
Now you might be tempted to restore severely damaged springs yourself. However, this isn't really advisable since the task is very difficult, time-consuming, and requires special equipment. Your best bet would be to let a professional mechanic handle extremely worn-out or damaged springs.
