Why Suspension Maintenance is Important for Diesel Trucks

The suspension system of a diesel truck is responsible for absorbing shock and vibrations caused by rough roads, bumps, and potholes. It also helps to maintain the truck’s stability and balance, ensuring a smooth and comfortable ride. Regular maintenance of your diesel truck’s suspension system is essential to ensure optimal performance and longevity.

Over time, the suspension system of a diesel truck or fleet vehicle can wear out due to the weight of the vehicle and the constant stress put on the components. The leaf springs and air bag suspension systems are the two most common types of suspension found in diesel trucks. Leaf springs are the traditional suspension system, while airbag suspension systems are more modern and advanced.

Leaf Spring Suspension

Leaf spring suspension is a straightforward and robust system that has been used for many years in diesel trucks. It consists of multiple layers of steel strips or leaves, which are arranged in a specific pattern to support the weight of the truck. The leaf springs are attached to the truck’s frame and the axles to provide a cushioning effect, reducing the impact of the bumps and shocks on the road.

Redmond Fleet offers a comprehensive range of leaf spring suspension services, including repair and replacement. We understand that a worn or damaged leaf spring can affect the stability, handling, and ride comfort of your diesel truck or fleet vehicle, and we have the expertise and tools to fix the problem efficiently.

Air Bag Suspension

Air bag suspension is a more advanced suspension system that uses airbags to support the weight of the truck. The airbags are filled with compressed air, which is regulated by an air compressor and a valve system. The airbag suspension system provides a smooth and comfortable ride by adjusting the height of the truck, which reduces the impact of bumps and potholes on the road.

Redmond Fleet provides a comprehensive range of airbag suspension services, including repair and replacement. We have the experience and expertise to diagnose and fix any issue with your air bag suspension system to ensure that your diesel truck is safe and reliable on the road.

Redmond Fleet did an absolutely amazing  job on my truck! I went to them with a pretty large task- an entire frame swap on a truck. They were ready to take it on without any hesitation, and delivered nothing short of excellence! Matt and his crew were thorough about the entire job, making sure that any other problems / issues found along the way (warn out parts, etc.) were addressed and properly corrected.
