BCC Leaf Springs are made from British steel and are manufactured to an exact standard using an ISO 9001 quality control system to ensure the production processes for forming, tapering, eye rolling and tempering each spring are done to a consistently high standard.
Replacing the leaf springs on your classic vehicle can be one of the most significant and beneficial purchases you make. Here at BCC we are aware of the wide range of choices the customer has from various different suppliers. Based on our experience of the market, and our customers experiences, BCC will only supply springs that comply, as best possible, with OEM specifications or better and have a track record of successful fitment with previous customers.
We manufacture leaf springs that are as close to the manufacturers original specification as we can, we use the correct imperial gauge steel sizes whenever possible whilst matching the interleaving and fixings as best possible. Some detail can sometimes be lost over time so we are always open to information from marque experts.
Please note that manufacturers sometimes altered the spring specifications between similar models, for instance the ‘L’ and the ‘GL’ model of an otherwise identical car may have springs with different rates to give a smoother more luxurious ride, conversely export cars often had tougher springs to cope with rougher roads.
The springs on your car may not be the originals, a lot can happen in 50 or 60 years, and so our listing may differ from the springs you have on your car. It is therefore important to try to give us as much information as you can; the year of manufacture (not always the same as the date of first registration) the model designation and variant, e.g. Mk2 Escort Estate GL are all important but if it is available any information from the owner’s manual or parts book for the original part number or the spring rate will be ideal, but failing that the number of leaves and the approximate spring width, will help us to identify the correct spring.
If you are in any doubt as to the originality of your current springs you can seek further confirmation with BCC by requesting a leaf spring check sheet on which they can fill out basic dimensions and features such as number of leafs, leaf thickness, camber height, mounting point pitches etc.
Your order confirmation from BCC will include basic dimensional information on the spring you have ordered allowing you to check against the springs you are replacing.
