Liteflex manufactures composite leaf springs primarily for original equipment manufacturers but also provides springs for the aftermarket.
More than 35 years of independent testing and real-world application have proven Liteflex composite leaf springs to be more durable and longer lasting than steel. This claim is also evidenced by our zero ppm defect rating. For Class 8 Steer Axle leaf springs, the ride is vastly improved and after one million miles the composite leaf spring retains its original ride height, unlike steel which goes flat over time. They are proven to be lower cost, cheaper to maintain, and more stable than air ride. In contrast, steel springs are three times heavier, making Liteflex composite springs the smarter way to ride.
Liteflex manufactures in Englewood and Dayton, Ohio for the passenger vehicle market, as well as the light-duty and heavy-duty commercial vehicle markets.
A pioneer in weight-saving suspensions, Liteflex has been providing composite springs for nearly 40 years. Liteflex has produced over 21,000,000+ springs for manufacturers including GM, Fiat, Diamler, Iveco, Range Rover, Kenworth, Peterbilt, Freightliner, Navistar, and heavy-duty trailers. With five different manufacturing locations, Liteflex enjoys immense capacity and production capability with state-of-the-art equipment ready to support demands of any size.
