What lift springs to use?


Recommended Posts

Depends what your truck will weigh fully kitted out.

I suggest you build the truck on any old springs, then take it to your nearest weighbridge where for the price of a few drinks you should be able to weigh the front and rear axles.

Deduct 200kg for the front and 150kg for the rear unsprung axle weights and you can then go looking at spring lengths and rates. If you look in the tech archive there are all sorts of links to useful spring tables.
