Leaf Spring, Rear

A leaf spring in the rear of the vehicle, are used as a basic form of suspension; that is made using layers of heavy duty steel of different sizes. These layers are then sandwiched together, one of the top of another, and that is how the leaf spring is created. Most of these leaf spring for the rear of vehicles are formed to look like an elliptical shape. These leaf springs are allows flex when pressure is added from either sides. The steel used in them is cut out in rectangular sections, and held together using metal clips on the side, and large bolt in the middle of the leaf spring. This ensures that these leaf springs will not budge, and provide the service they are required to. The elasticity in these leaf spring allows for a pliancy, that is found in the suspension for an added level of control and comfort while the vehicle is moving.
