EMU DAKAR LEAF SPRINGS

Emu Dakar leaf springs cater for commercial vehicles and those who regularly carry heavy loads.

1 Military Wrap. Designed to provide added safety.

2 Draw tapered & Diamond Cut Leaves. To reduce interleaf friction and to ensure that load distribution occurs at the leaf tips-this significantly contributes to spring life.

3 Anti Friction Pads. Regreasable nylon interleaf liners reduce friction at the leaf tips where the load is the greatest.

4 Graphite Coating. To further reduce the friction between the spring leaves & friction pads

5 Bolt Clamps and Liners. The leaf clamps are bolted to allow installation of anti squeak nylon liners

6 Shot Peening. The tension side of all leaves is shot peened to reduce spring stress. The process can double the life of a spring.

7 Flat Axle Seat Area. Allows a positive, safe axle mount reducing spring stress & increasing spring life.

8 Fully Scragged & Load Tested. Scragging ensures the spring takes a permanent 'set' which reduces the risk of sagging. Load testing ensures the spring meets the required specifications.

Please note: Most Emu Dakar leaf springs have all the listed features, but where design or a physical limitation exists one or more of these features may not be incorporated. Please check with your OME licensed fitter for further information.

When developing rear Emu Dakar leaf springs, OME engineers invariably opt for a 2-stage leaf pack. When unladen, your vehicle rides largely on the primary stage, thus ensuring a smooth, comfortable ride. When your vehicle is heavily laden, the secondary stage is employed for additional support.
