All Air Suspension, a leading distributor of supplementary air suspensions for work and recreational vehicles in NSW and the ACT, has introduced an Air Suspension Rear Leaf Spring Helper Kit to complement the increased towing and load carrying capacity of the new Ford and Mazda models.
Part of the Firestone Ride-Rite range, and featuring heavy duty Firestone airbags, the Air Suspension Rear Leaf Spring Helper Kit is designed for the Ford Ranger PX and Mazda BT-50 (B32P + B22P) models.
Manufactured by Airbag Man using the world-leading Firestone air springs, the kits is designed to improve the ride, safety and durability of work vehicles and towing trailers carrying heavy and uneven loads in addition to improving the performance of recreational vehicles such as mobile homes and vehicles towing caravans and boats.
Key benefits of the Air Suspension Rear Leaf Spring Helper Kit:
- Optimises the performance of vehicles
- Allows the driver to maintain correct vehicle height with no spring sag even under heavy loads
- Helps decrease tyre wear
- Natural brake wear more evenly distributed
- Improves steering and handling of the vehicle, which can be compromised under heavy loads
The airbags can be adjusted for varying loads and road conditions by simply inflating or deflating, similar to a tyre. Firestone Ride-Rite airbags provide extra support for leaf suspensions in light trucks, vans, utes, 4WDs, SUVs, caravans and motor homes.
According to All Air Suspension's General Manager, Mr James Maslin, vehicle suspension that is perfectly good for normal lighter service can change markedly when it is more heavily loaded, subjecting them to increased sway because of lateral forces, while trailer-imposed ball weight will cause headlights to shine up into the trees or blind other drivers.
It is important for a vehicle’s suspension to be properly set up to tow or cope with overloading, uneven loading or varying loads.
All Air Suspension offers specialised suspension kits for a range of different vehicles.
