As a vehicle equipped with leaf spring suspension is loaded, the leaf springs can easily flatten causing them to loose their ability to work as designed and result in the vehicle’s suspension bottoming out. This can change the overall ride of the vehicle making it feel soft and uncontrollable as well as causing the rear end to sway as the vehicle is in motion. Heavy loads and flat springs force the front of the vehicle higher which in turn affects one of the most important functions of any vehicle, the steering, as well as braking, tire wear, and alignment.
The front end issues that are caused by the uneven ride of the vehicle can also cause problems for the rear axle. Axle wrap, unwanted suspension movement that allows the pinion angle to change, is another side effect of flat leaf springs which can lead to unnecessary wear on u-joints, the transmission, rear end seals, and bearings. The end result is that as a loaded vehicle is driven, parts on the vehicle begin to wear causing additional expenses and increased safety risks for those driving as well as those around the vehicle. This suspension failure problem can easily be addressed with the simple installation of the Maxloader support spring system.
The Maxloader system is designed to provide the consumer with a cost effective and safe way to handle heavy loads. The ingenious design provides added support only when it is needed allowing the vehicle to maintain the factory ride characteristics whether empty or full. The Maxloader system allows the factory leaf springs to work the way they were designed while providing extra support when hauling additional weight. The end result is a vehicle that rides level with the weight more evenly distributed while allowing the suspension and drive train to operate as intended.
The Maxloader support spring system is designed to install in between the axle and factory leaf springs, providing support that is needed as it is needed. Each Maxloader spring is as long as the factory leaf springs, providing support at three key points with the outside contact points being durable, long-lasting polyurethane pads. This design allows the Maxloader to provide additional support to the existing suspension at both ends as well as the center, decreasing sway and greatly reducing axle wrap. The installation of the Maxloader spring support system is easily accomplished with only a few bolts and, due to the simplicity of the system, no clamps, air lines, compressors, or other parts that can wear out are needed.
