The Liteflex
Advantage

Weighs Less – Parabolic/Tapered designs weigh one third that of steel, allowing for overall weight reduction, greater hauling capacity and improved fuel economy.

Lasts Longer – Liteflex Composite Springs do not rust, won’t lose strength with age and never sag, providing a fatigue life of five times that of steel springs.

Reduces Maintenance – With no air bags, shocks, or leveling valves, Liteflex Composite Springs substantially reduce maintenance costs.

Increases Tire Life – After replacing inferior, multi-leaf steel springs, some customers have reported a 200%-300% increase in tire life.

Rides Smoother – Liteflex Composite Springs reduce road noise and vibration for a softer ride and excellent cargo and trailer protection.

Highest Temperature ResistanceSuperior epoxy resin helps Liteflex springs resist up to 165°C (325°F) versus 130°C (265°F) for our competitors’ urethane.

Safety – Liteflex Composite Springs are more dependable, nearly indestructible and have a safety feature allowing for continued driving to a maintenance facility.

Continuously Improving – Liteflex is currently seeking truck and fleet operators to participate in a study of improved tire wear on vehicles utilizing Liteflex springs.

Proven – 21,000,000+ installations in vehicles around the world, Liteflex has been innovating since 1981.
