Add More Lift to Your Vehicle with an Add-a-Leaf Kit

If you find yourself needing a bit more lift for your vehicle while hauling supplies, but don’t want to invest in a brand new leaf spring suspension system, consider an Add-a-Leaf kit. This affordable solution provides extra support to your existing suspension system, increasing the capacity of your truck, trailer, SUV, or recreational vehicle.

What Exactly Do Add-a-Leaf Kits Do?

An Add-a-Leaf kit adds a 2-3-inch lift to your vehicle by providing additional tension to the existing leaf springs. This added support improves shock absorption on bumpy roads, tough terrain, and when carrying heavy loads. Installed near the axle between the smallest and largest leaf, this kit re-arches your leaf spring for extra lift, making it particularly advantageous for trailers.

Have you ever experienced that annoying squeaking sound when hitting a bump or loading your vehicle with a lot of weight? That’s the friction between the leaf springs and the axle. To address this, some Add-a-Leaf kits come with tip inserts or squeak pads that can be installed on the end of the leaf, reducing friction and eliminating that bothersome noise.

Available Add-a-Leaf Options

Add-a-Leaf kits are available in two sizes: short and full size. The full-size option is highly recommended for maximum support and a better ride, as it reduces axle wrap. While most over-the-counter Add-a-Leaf kits will fit the majority of vehicles, it’s crucial to note that they might not fit every vehicle perfectly. However, General Spring, a supplier of automotive suspension parts, offers custom-made Add-a-Leaf kits for popular vehicle brands like Chevrolet/GMC, Ford, Dodge/Chrysler, Plymouth, and Toyota. These kits are specifically arched, cut, and punched to provide a perfect fit for your car, truck, van, SUV, trailer, or recreational vehicle.

The Importance of Matching Add-a-Leafs

An Add-a-Leaf kit is typically made of thick steel and is sold in pairs. It’s important to note that you should never support just one leaf spring with an Add-a-Leaf. Even if it seems like only one side needs additional support, it’s highly recommended to replace both sides to achieve maximum weight distribution and maintain the balance of your vehicle’s suspension system.
