Chassis spacer

Chassis spacers are cushioning materials that reduce the load on the chassis when tightening the chassis U-bolts. It is also used to adjust the height of the cargo bed (to raise the position of the cargo bed) to make the fender easier to see. It is used by sandwiching it between the vertical joists and the chassis.

Chassis spacers are important cushioning materials

Chassis spacers are cushioning materials sandwiched between the vertical joists and the chassis. Reduces the load when tightening the chassis U-bolts and prevents chassis deformation.

When installing the chassis U-bolts, they must be tight enough to prevent them from loosening. However, if you tighten the bolts without inserting the chassis spacer, the chassis itself may be deformed by the strong torque.

If the chassis is deformed, excessive load will be applied to the chassis U-bolts, which may damage the bolts or tilt the cargo bed.

There are various types of chassis spacers

Waste plastic is often used as the material for chassis spacers, but there are products made of polyethylene resin, PVC, and rubber with cloth.

For chassis with rivet heads, use chassis spacers with rivet grooves.

If your chassis doesn't have rivet heads, like Mitsubishi Fuso trucks, use fabric-filled belt spacers. In some cases, cloth-filled belt spacers are used by hollowing out only the part where the rivet heads protrude with a hole saw.

If you want to adjust the height of the loading platform, generally use a high spacer with a length of L = 2500mm. Belt spacers are generally used as cushioning materials.

There is also a distance piece that acts as a cushioning material to prevent the chassis from bending or collapsing when the U-bolt is tightened.

At Yamada Body Works, we have many products with different widths, thicknesses, and materials, centering on high spacers made of waste plastic, and we can support various types of vehicles and specifications.
