Skyjacker® Softride® leaf springs are individually shot-peened with hard steel pellets at very high velocities. This shot-peening compresses the surface of the steel thereby increasing the tensile strength of the spring. Without this shot-peening procedure, the maximum wheel travel and ride quality could not be achieved without sacrificing the life of the spring.
Softride® springs use ‘bolt’ style spring clips, eliminating friction. Other spring designs use the ‘cinch’ style bend clips which bend tightly over the spring leafs causing binding and friction. Skyjacker® Softride® springs are a tapered spring creating more flex at the leaf ends. This tapering distributes loads more evenly over a greater area and reduces the tendency for one leaf to dig into the leaf above it. Rear Softride® springs are used to complete the ‘SYSTEM’ in a Skyjacker® suspension lift.
