Triangle Suspension Systems announced that all leaf springs produced by Triangle will include a label with the proper U-bolt torque specifications.

"Properly torquing U-bolts is one of the most important and often overlooked activities associated with a leaf spring repair," explains Triangle President Rick Kempski. "Given the importance of this activity, we want everyone to know the proper torque specification when they are using a Triangle spring. We will also be adding this information to our packaged u-bolts in the near future."

Company officials note that retorquing U-bolts after a few hundred miles of service can eliminate most of the premature failures of leaf springs between the U-bolts.
