SuperSprings Overview


SuperSprings are progressive in nature in that they work on an as-needed basis. The installed springs are under nominal tension even when the vehicle is unloaded. This is for two reasons:

• So that there is no rattle or noise from the installed SuperSprings
• So that the patented rollers will activate automatically

As a vehicle with rear leaf springs comes under load the factory springs react as they are designed too. The center of the springs move vertically causing the overall leaves to flex and “flatten” out. This movement in the factory spring activates the SuperSpring through the rollers at the end of each leaf. Because the SuperSpring rollers are under tension, a movement in the factory spring causes them to move, seeking their new point of least resistance. This simple roller principal allows the SuperSprings to activate and deactivate automatically, free of any manual adjustment.

The SuperSprings are length specific to fit varying sized leaf springs. In addition the different lengths typically are manufactured in light, medium and heavy duty strengths. The sole adjustment on the SuperSprings is found in the roller shackles at the end of each leaf. The typical shackle has two bolt holes, as shown in the diagram below though some single hole and three holed shackles are used. The most common installation involves positioning all four rollers in the lower (furthest from the eye of the SuperSpring / closest to the ground) bolt holes. This ensures the least amount of preload tension on the SuperSprings and keeps the vehicle closest to its original factory ride conditions. Upper bolt holes may be used if additional “lift” is desired in the vehicle; if clearance from obstructions is required or if the installation is on an older vehicle with some fatigue in the springs.

For additional installation information please view your vehicles specific install instructions at this site under “installation instructions” or contact the SuperSprings tech support line. This toll free line (866-898-0720) is manned seven days a week, between the hours of 7:00 am and 5:00 pm (PST) for your assistance.

SuperSprings enhance load carrying capacity, handling and towing. Do not load any vehicle beyond the manufacturer’s gross vehicle weight rating.

Give us a call at 707-864-1064 for more information.

Fifth Wheel Travel Trailer - Safety Tips in Towing, Parking and Breaking



If you have not experienced towing your fifth wheel travel trailer there are safety tips that can help you each time you encounter this kind of problem. It is not like towing your car, your pickup. It is responsibility you have to take with care and safety should be your foremost concern. Safety is very important when towing your fifth wheel travel trailer as accidents will bring worse consequences.

Fifth Wheel General Towing Safety Tips

• Practice towing before driving it around on main roads especially when you are new to travel trailer towing. You can practice in vacant lots and set some props for turning and backing practices.

• Do not allow anyone to use your fifth wheel travel trailer.

• Make sure to check the routes before driving off for a trip especially restrictions imposed on bridges and tunnels.

• Make sure to use the trailer hitch system recommended by the manufacturer in towing your travel trailer.

• Moderate speed is recommended allowing less strain on your tow vehicle and RV trailer. Driving faster will cause instability and swaying of your trailer.

• Avoid any sudden stops and starts as much as possible. This will result to skidding, sliding and jack knifing.

• Restrain from sudden steering maneuvers that might cause swaying or excessive side force on your travel trailer.

• Slow down on bumpy roads, railroads and ditches.

• Make sure to make wide turns on curves and corners.

• Refrain from parking on grades as much as possible. Ask someone to guide when parking. Make sure that blocks are placed on the downhill side on your trailer wheels before shifting into Park, place on the parking brake then change into park before taking off your foot from the brake pedal. This sequence in parking is very crucial to ensure that your trailer is not locked in Park because of the excess load on the transmission.

• Uncoupling your fifth wheel travel trail, the blocks must be put at the front and rear side of the trailer. This is to make sure that your trailer does not roll away once the trailer hitch is released.

• Before uncoupling your travel trailer jack stands should be place under the trailer to avoid any injury that may be caused by sudden rotating because of unbalance loads.

Braking while Towing your Fifth Wheel Travel Trailer

• Make sure you have considerable distance before stopping.

• When excessive sway occurs you can activate on your electric trailer brake controller. Attempting to control the trail with the use of tow vehicle brakes may make the sway worse.

• Remember to anticipate the need in slowing down. Shift to lower gear and press on your brakes lightly when reducing speed.

Safety is always important. These simple tips in towing, parking and breaking your fifth wheel travel trailer can guide you when using your trailer.

Truck Accessories


Over the years the rugged durability, functionality and style of pickup trucks have made them one of the most popular modes of transportation. One way consumers can make their vehicles fit their individual styles and needs is truck accessories.

Truck accessories often add an aspect of functionality left out of a vehicle off the factory floor. They also include upgrades of existing OEM parts.

Some of the most popular truck additions and accessories include:

Spray on bed liners. A spray on bed liner can be the perfect truck accessory. A composite liner is sprayed onto the bed of the truck and allowed to harden. This gives the bed a durable, rugged looking liner that is very difficult to damage. This type of liner protects the paint and frame of the truck.

Hitches. A hitch could be the most important accessory for a truck. A hitch allows a truck to pull trailers, boats, RVs and more. What good is a truck that cannot pull anything?

Lift kits. Lift kits add additional ground clearance to trucks. This makes lift kits an important truck accessory, especially if the owner plans on taking the vehicle off-road. Higher ground clearance protects the undercarriage of the truck and keeps important machinery from striking the ground.

Tonneau covers. A Tonneau cover can be a life-saving truck accessory. These covers keep cargo in the bed organized and protected from any weather. Most Tonneau covers come with locks that add an additional measure of security to freight in the bed of the truck.

Running boards. Running boards are an important addition especially when the truck has a lift kit. By raising the truck into the air it becomes more difficult to enter the truck. Running boards help the driver and passengers enter the truck by providing a sturdy place to step up into the truck.

There are many different types of truck accessories that can add individuality and style to a vehicle. They can add important features and personality that will truly make a truck yours.

The Top 5 Most Useful Truck Accessories


Truck accessories are abundant and finding the one that best fits the needs of your vehicle can be difficult. You can easily spend a ton of money on useless truck accessories and gadgets that do little or nothing to increase the usefulness and appearance of your truck.

Here are the top five most useful truck accessory upgrades you can make to your new or used truck.

Tonneau Covers - Tonneau covers not only enhance the way your truck looks, but it increases its performance by saving money on fuel. With many different types of covers available, including soft and hard, there are solutions to meet every need. Tonneau covers add protection from wind, rain, snow and heat in addition to preventing theft. With many different styles including folding, retracting, roll up and hinged, the choices are endless. Money is saved on gas by reducing your truck's drag when traveling.

Underseat Storage- Designed to fit snugly in your truck's under seat and rear seat compartments, underseat storage opens a entire realm of travel possibilities. Installation is easy with no drilling or cutting (most models) and storage for items that are sensitive to the elements are now protected.

Heavy Duty Floor Mats - Nothing can compare to an upgraded set of floor mats. Designed to catch dirt, water, mud, spilled food and drinks - heavy duty floor mats of superior grade ensure your truck retains its value by keeping the floor beneath it fresh and new.

Nerf Bars - Nerf bars are the ideal add-on for trucks simply because the make entering and exiting the vehicle a breeze. Once you've added these truck accessories, you'll wonder how you functioned without them. Many have increased traction areas to ensure your step up and down is a sure one in all types of weather.
Bug Shields - Bug shields are built to deflect bugs and other small debris from your front end, making truck wash time a little less like scrub time. Many are stylish and come in different patterns and chrome.

This list is brief and I could have definitely expanded it to twenty without blinking. The key to successfully upgrading your ride and comfort level is evaluating your needs and systematically upgrading as your budget allows.

Fiberglass Truck Lids - The Latest in Pickup Truck Cargo Care


If you have a pick up cargo truck, you should definitely buy fiberglass truck lids for it. These lids represent the latest trend in pickup truck cargo care. The reason behind their popularity is that they are lightweight, are easy to install and use, and can be customized according to the use.

These fiberglass truck lids are made of fiberglass which is very lightweight yet is a very strong material. In fact these lids are very easy to install and use because of their light weight. You can easily install them with a wrench and screw, You do not have to drill any bad looking holes in your truck. Plus, the lids are durable enough to withstand the worst weather and road conditions.

Since they are so light in weight, they are very easy to operate. You can easily lift the cover, secure it in place, and then access the truck bed. Usually these lids have hinges near the bed of the truck which can be opened from tailgate. Some of the lids have these hinges running in the middle of the bed. Therefore they can be easily opened from either side.

Also like mentioned above these lids are completely customizable. You can easily accustom them according to the color of that particular truck. You can paint entire designs or emblems on them. Usually the fiberglass truck lids have a handle located over the tailgate. This handle provides a professional look to the lids. You can add a wing on the back end which adds to the overall aerodynamics of the vehicle.

The lids provide you with an organized storage system. You can easily store the loose items in the bed as the lid will keep them from falling off the truck. It keeps the cargo safe as it protects the cargo from any damaging weather conditions like snow, rain and extreme sun. Since the cargo is covered, the chances of cargo theft are considerably less.

Also the lids provide you with an immediate improvement in gas mileage. This is because usually when the air flows over the aerodynamic front end of the truck, it tends to swirl into the rear truck bed and catch on to the tailgate. As a result the truck loses several miles. However the lid covers have a tight, aerodynamic shape that covers the drag-prone open bed. Hence the air hits the lids and passes past the vehicle.

The best part is that it looks good also. The lids are available in a range of smooth leather grain patterns as well as custom color matched style.

All these benefits and features make these fiberglass truck lids a must have for your pick up truck.

Things To Know About A Car Windshield Repair


At some point, most of us experience a crack, ding, or chip in our windshield - whether from a pebble on the highway, a rogue golf ball or damage from a fallen branch. However, there are things you should know about windshield repairs before you decide to replace your windshield entirely. You may be able to have it repaired for a fraction of the cost. Time is of the essence in such a matter, as a chipped or minor crack in a windshield can quickly spread or escalate beyond repair.

Use this helpful guide when pursuing windshield repairs for your vehicle:

When to replace your windshield - How do you know when the damage to your windshield is beyond repair and will need to replace it? It can cost anywhere from four to ten times higher to replace your windshield than repair it, so only replace it if a windshield repair expert recommends doing so. Likewise, get a second opinion and shop around for a few quotes from windshield repair facilities before choosing one that offers reputable service, at the value you're looking for.

When to repair it - Windshield repair or replacement depends on the size, location and severity of the damage. Consider the following points when having your windshield repaired:
Size of damage - Generally, you can have your windshield repaired for cracks up to 12 inches long, and chips less than the size of a quarter in diameter.
Location considerations - According to the windshield repair experts, the location of the damage also plays an important role in determining your windshield's fate. Cracks at the edge of the windshield tend to spread very quickly and can compromise the structural integrity of the glass. If they're caught in time, they can be repaired. But in most cases, it's usually advisable to replace the windshield.
Cost expectations - Replacing an entire windshield costs anywhere from $150 for passenger vehicles to over $300 for trucks and vans. Repairing a chip costs about $40-$50 for the first chip, then usually $10 extra for each additional chip. Keep in mind that the bigger the crack or chip, the higher the cost to repair it. Since cracks can easily spread, the sooner you can have it repaired, the better.

Ways to be pro-active about keeping your windshield ding-free - drive at a safe distance behind trucks or work vehicles that can often spin damage-causing rocks into the air. When at all possible, avoid parking underneath large trees to reduce the risk of windshield damage from branches or fallen debris.

Now that you have some helpful things to consider when having your windshield repaired, you should be prepared in the event that you experience damages. Make sure that you have an auto insurance policy that offers the coverage you need to have your windshield repaired or replaced.
