leaf springs

Recommended Posts


Best way is both as bert says. Generally, you would only change one if you had a mishap with a spring on a nearly new motor.Fitting just one is ok then. If you were to put just one on a older motor, it could sit high on one side, or/ and the spring rate may be a bit different and affect the handling. Tip! Don't tighten the swinging shackle bolts until the weight is back on the wheels. That way, the swivel can articulate naturally.

If u break a lot of springs u can weld coils between the chassis and the spring and u'll never break one again! I know of people doing it with rangers, mazdas and toyotas the ride is slightly harsher off road but it'll save u a few pennies! :o)

 

p.s. never buy the genuine ford springs they are far softer and more expensive than aftermarket ones!

 

Hope some of this helps.

I've used Milners Off Road for leaf springs for my L200 mate, very reasonable they were too.
