Leaf Springs


While most modern vehicles don't use leaf springs, vintage and classic cars, as well as commercial vehicles and lorries, may do and here we explain more.

Leaf springs were a simple form of delivering suspension

Before the advent of modern suspension systems in our vehicles, leaf springs were a simple form of delivering suspension in a wheeled vehicle. The idea was simple and the leaf spring also provides support to deliver a smooth ride and will absorb the bumps drivers experience when driving over potholes and bumps. While cars tend not to use leaf springs, commercial vehicles, including lorries, vans and some SUV's may have them installed. For those vehicle's that have them, then they need to be inspected to check they are not broken, cracked or missing pieces and if so, they need to be replaced as soon as possible.

Symptoms for failing leaf springs

The symptoms for failing leaf springs include the ride becoming very bouncy and you may find that when you hit a bump the vehicle will sway. It also needs to be appreciated that leaf spring suspension systems cannot be repaired and will need to be replaced though they are designed for longevity. The name leaf springs come from the design which sees several leaves of metal being stacked on top of each other several times and the maker will use progressively shorter metal leaves. In addition to damping the ride, the leaf spring system will deliver a comfortable ride and there may be a need to have radius arms within the axle to compensate for the movement of the leaves. Of those modern cars that do have them, the leaf design means that the manufacturer can use a suspension that's flatter and smaller than a traditional suspension system is and it's also lighter too. Some SUV’s have them fitted and owners need to be aware of this to ensure they carry out regular inspections and notice when their vehicle’s ride gets progressively more uncomfortable.

Inspect leaf springs on a regular basis

The vehicle manufacturer may stipulate that owners inspect leaf springs on a regular basis, usually at the major service, which is usually every 12,000 miles for cars and commercial vehicles. It's here that the issues with wear and tear and possibly corrosion will be picked up and it may also be noticeable that one side of the vehicle sits lower than the other side, which may be down to damaged or weak leaf springs on that side of the vehicle. Because they are exposed to road debris and weather conditions, dirt can accelerate corrosion, so some manufacturers will insist that they are cleaned fairly often to extend the lifespan. This will be indicated in your vehicle's handbook.
