Car owners are always looking for ways to make their vehicles safe, improve ride quality and performance. They deploy and try all the different methods available to improve the way their vehicles move on the road. Most people who have been dealing with vehicles and maintaining them for years know that the most important role in improving the ride quality of a vehicle is played by its suspensions. However, the suspensions you currently have on your vehicle are not enough if you need to add extra load to your vehicle or want your vehicle more lifted from the ground than before.
Most people will go for helper springs when they want more support for the leaf springs or coil springs on their cars. These springs give support to the existing springs, increase the load capacity of the car and give many other additional benefits. They are available for coil and leaf springs both. However, the biggest problem with these helper springs is that not all people are in a position to afford them. With new technology coming in every day the prices are going higher for better components and so many people are not able to afford the helper springs.
One great and affordable method of adding more lift to the car and enhancing its suspension quality is through add-a-leafs. This is a method that allows car owners to add leaves to their existing leaf springs. What this means is that the owner of the car is adding more steel to the already existing structure. This makes the leaf springs stronger and adds to the height of the vehicle. While adding more inches to the height of the vehicle is one purpose that these kits serve, this is not the primary goal for most car owners for installing them.
They want to increase the load capacity of their vehicles and this is why they go for these kits. Furthermore, they are more suitable for people who want constant rate and helper springs are perfect for people who need progressive rate as well. Add a leaf kits are most suitable for people who don’t have a big budget to make the suspensions of their cars better. This is a way of upgrading the already existing suspensions of your vehicle. You just add another leaf or the desired number of leaves to the existing leaf springs on your car’s suspensions.
The spring capacity gets better as you add more leaves to your leaf springs. Furthermore, the added thickness of the additional leaf lifts your vehicle higher from the ground. Most of the add a leaf kits will come with the stripes that can be added to your existing leaf springs and the pin to accommodate the additional leaf. These additional leaves are available for front and rear wheels of the car. These kits are easily available online but you have to make sure to buy only the reliable ones. Always make sure if you are getting warranty on your purchased items. The installation process should also be simple and easy.
