Heavy lorry towing bracket question


Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

Regarding tow hook mounting, I have two chassis brackets which hold a leaf spring? For the tow hook to bolt to.

a stupid question but would this have been the vehicles own spring type (spare)?

If not, what kind of spring and how is it fastened to stop it sliding sideways?

Many thanks, Neil.

That’s the one.

Ive got the ‘S’ brackets for the chassis but not the spring bar or hitch.

Thats another thing I’ve got to put on the list.

Did you source wood for the rear floor?

That is the 'standard' setup but the strength and length of the spring is tailored to the dimensions, weight and power of the vehicle so they are not at all universal though they look similar. They have no relationship to suspension springs other than both being leaf springs.
