The leaf spring is one of the oldest forms of suspension, predating coil springs by many centuries. Since the middle of the 20th century, when coil springs in automobiles became ubiquitous, leaf springs have been found mainly in light commercial and 4WD vehicles, as the design of the spring allows the load to be spread more widely over the chassis.
The Kilen leaf spring range features over 250 parts, covering more than 70 different models and making it one of Europe's most comprehensive collections.
