Taper leaf springs

Recommended Posts

Does anybody make a 44000lb replacement spring  for taper leaf spring suspension. I was told that there was an aftermarket one available but haven't been able to find any

Triangle, in Dubois, PA, supplied me a replacement leaf for 1954 White. I was amazed.

They show some front springs also.  I wonder if they have tapered leaf for the front of a B model?  Wouldn't that just be a FINE upgrade over that monster spring pack?

I was able to blow up the pictures and doesn't look like anything but stock springs.  Ugh.

You can upgrade 34,000lb Mack taperleaf (parabolic) springs to 38,000 taperleaf (4QK3368AM to 4QK3369AM). But you wouldn't want 44,000 capacity taperleaf springs (if even aftermarket available) on 34,000 capacity Mack (ST34) axles.

Glad we could be of assistance. 

Can I ask how you like the taper leaf? Can you compare it to a standard camelback?

I only had the taper leaf on a couple of road trucks they seemed to ride pretty good and had good articulation in the truck stop parking lot pot holes. The ride is much better than the camel backs that I have had.
