i didn't know this.. and this does make a difference on what im going to be using! thanks for the info!!:yes:Another big advantage is you can change the ride height whenever you want. Just call Calvert, they will send a new pair of leafs for the back section, and you just pay shipping to send the originals back to them. I did this on mine and got ride height right where I wanted. :yes:
Monoleafs also have a curve though so they would be considered parabolic? So the only reason to run the split monos are for weight savings?With the overlap under the axle housing, the split mono leaf maintains the characteristics of a parabolic spring, but without the weight of the spring stack.
No, typically a multi-leaf parabolic spring stack is tapered in a parabolic way rather than a linear. The tapering steps down in a parabolic manner, i.e. each progressive spring in the stack is shorter. Yes, the shape of the spring is also parabolical. This design keeps the spring flexible to allow the suspension to better articulate, but able to resist spring wrap under acceleration. The split mono leaf is able to emulate this without the spring stack, interleaf friction, and subsequent weight associated with multiple leaf stacks.Monoleafs also have a curve though so they would be considered parabolic?
