Many customers ask us, “Why are some TUFTRUCK Heavy Duty springs shorter than my trucks OEM springs?” This is because TUFTRUCK springs are made of thick, heavy duty material that is designed to withstand the weight of the truck. While the OEM springs are taller, they are designed to compress under the weight of the truck. TUFTRUCK Heavy Duty springs eliminate the need for the extra height by being stronger, and maintaining their height when used. The difference in size can be seen in the picture below.
As you can see, the Spring on the left is shorter than the OEM Spring on the right. However, the Spring on the left will not shrink to the same degree as the spring on the right when placed under heavy strain.
