Springs will support your 4x4 and sets your vehicle height. It determines
the maximum suspension travel possible and affects vehicle ride and handling.
Features of OrangeBlack leaf springs:
- Military Wrapper
A military wrapper is used as a safety mechanism to aid the vehicle's
steering in the case of the main leaf breaking.
- Drawn, tapered and diamond cut leaves
To assist in load distribution and reduce inter leaf friction which
occurs at the end of the leaves.
- Design characteristics
All leaves are designed and calculated to achieve a high performance
spring. Inappropriate leaf lengths will concentrate stress in one particular
area and will cause premature sagging or breaking.
- Scrag testing
This is a process that is done to most of the springs manufactured.
The springs are scragged to 90% of the yield stress of the material
used, to help eliminate sagging.
- Inter leaf anti-friction liners
Reduce friction at the tip of the leaves where the load is the greatest
in the spring.
- Quality control
Stringent quality control procedures for heat treatment processes at
all phases of the manufacturing processes ensures OrangeBlack springs
are made the same exceptional way every time.
OrangeBlack coils are made 20-40% stronger than OEM coil springs. They
give you better load handling and road handling properties.
Features of OrangeBlack leaf coil springs:
- Precise end configurations
Engineered coil ends are designed to fit the vehicle correctly
- Formed on precision mandrels
Each coil is precisely placed by a programmable logic computer to achieve
- Heat Treatment
Hardening and tempering is completed by a very accurate electronically
controlled furnace to eliminate breakage.
- Design technology
Using state of the art computers, the coil springs are designed to maximize:
load carrying, handling, vehicle height and towing capacity.
- Shot peened
Coils are shot peened to give longer life.
- Powder Coat finish
The powder coat finish is baked on to give a lasting protective coat
to help eliminate rust.
- Fully scragged and load tested
All coils are scragged 100% to eliminate subsequent spring sag and load
tested to ensure that they meet and maintain the required specifications.
