Draw Tapered & Diamond Cut Leaves: Ensure the load is progressively distributed over a larger surface area, reducing the high stresses that develop at leaf ends. This provides increased ride quality and protection against leaf breakage, significantly increasing the spring life.
Bolt Clamps & Liners: The leaf clamps are bolted to allow installation of anti squeak nylon liners.
Fully Scragged & Load Tested: Scragging ensures the spring takes a permanent ‘set’ which reduces the risk of sagging. Load testing ensures the spring meets the required specification.
Graphite Coating: To further reduce the friction between the spring leaves & friction pads.
Military Wrap: Designed to provide added safety.
Anti Friction Pads: Regreasable nylon interleaf liners reduce friction at the leaf tips where the load is the greatest.
Flat Axle Seat Area: Allows a positive, safe axle mount reducing spring stress & increasing spring life.
Shot Peening: The tension side of all leaves is shot peened to reduce spring stress. This process can double the life of a spring.
Two-stage Leaf Pack: Featured on most rear springs for optimum comfort. When unladen the vehicle is largely riding on the primary stage, with the secondary stage providing additional support when a heavy load is added.
Please note: Most Emu leaf springs have all the listed features, but where design or a physical limitation exists one or more of these features may not be incorporated.
