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 the virtually nil replacements required after every order delivery. For Class 8 Steer Axel 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. All this, and generally two-thirds lighter than their steel counterpart, makes composite springs a smarter way to ride.
Liteflex springs are manufactured in Englewood and Dayton, Ohio for the passenger vehicle market, as well as the light-duty and heavy-duty commercial vehicle markets.
Liteflex has been providing composite springs for nearly 40 years. They are in use on over 15 million vehicles, including GM, Fiat, Daimler, Iveco, Range Rover, Kenworth, Peterbilt, Freightliner, Navistar, and heavy duty trailer suspensions. All facilities are ISO/TS 16949:2009 certified.
