Leaf Spring Inspection
Visually inspecting the leaf spring will reveal if cracks, material degradation, or broken leaves are present. If the springs are not installed we can take free arch measurements and compare the measurements to the manufacturer free arch specification.
During your inspection, we’ll test drive and inspect the vehicle ride height. Test driving and inspecting the vehicle ride height are important steps in diagnosing a potential leaf springs problem. Checking vehicle ride height at all four corners and frame measurements for variations can indicate a leaf spring problem. Uneven weight distribution or insufficient capacity can cause a vehicle to lean or sag, which we’ll notice when we visually inspect your vehicle as well as when we take it for a test drive.
During your inspection, we also consider the general age, overall condition of the leaves, and condition of the bushings when we inspect your leaf springs. Once those factors are known, we can offer you options to fix the ride height and/or capacity problem. Schedule an appointment for a leaf spring inspection.

Leaf Spring Arching
Leaf spring arch (in addition to spring rate) determines vehicle ride height. Changing arch can increase or decrease ride height. In cases where a vehicle has a different ride height, from the left to right side or front to back, arching can provide a solution. Arching leaf springs is a process of recurving each individual leaf spring to a specific contour and free arch. Stress relieving each spring is the final step in the process. All arching service are done in house and performed same day with an appointment.

When to Replace Leaf Springs
Do your leaf springs sag or not carry weight as intended? Does your vehicle lean to one side or bottom out? Does it sag when loaded? Are your leaf springs bent, broken, or cracked? Leaf springs are pretty durable and are made out of steel. But, like any part of your vehicle, they will need to be replaced eventually. Here are some signs you need to replace your leaf springs:
1. Your leaf springs are cracked
Any time you notice that your leaf springs are cracked or broken, or if there are clearly pieces missing, you should bring your vehicle in to have your leaf springs replaced.
2. The rear end of your vehicle is swaying
If your vehicle seems more bouncy than normal (especially in the back), it could be due to your leaf springs wearing out. Leaf springs are meant to absorb the extra energy that comes from bumps. If you’re starting to sway when you hit a pothole or bump in the road, it’s time to inspect your leaf springs.
3. Your truck is sagging
If your truck sags excessively when carrying a load, your leaf springs are either going bad or you need to increase their capacity. Avoid further complications down the road and have Spring Works provide you with a custom solution.
