All Air Suspension has introduced a new rear suspension leaf spring helper kit designed specifically for the Toyota LandCruiser 70-79 Series Utes.

An industry mainstay for decades, particularly in mining and agriculture thanks to its towing capability, the Toyota LandCruiser 70 Series Ute is a reliable, hard-working vehicle that also develops wear and tear over time.

The new rear suspension leaf helper kit for the LandCruiser 70-79 Series Ute is a bolt-in system from Airbag Man designed to assist the existing leaf springs, providing excellent ride, load carrying capability and adjustability while also reducing maintenance costs over time with less, more evenly distributed wear.

All Air Suspension General Manager, Mr James Maslin explains that the kits provide rear support, which is especially important when carrying heavy or uneven loads in the tray of the vehicle. The helper kits maintain correct vehicle height at all times, which will in turn reduce the overall wear on the tyres and more evenly distribute brake wear, extending the working life of these valuable industry vehicles.

Firestone Ride-Rite airbags are designed to fit between a vehicle’s chassis and the axle/leaf spring to provide levelling control, front-to-rear and side-to-side, when a vehicle is under load, enabling the vehicle to level up when carrying heavy, uneven loads or when towing caravans, boats and trailers. The heavy duty double convoluted airbags consist of two ply, reinforced rubber bellows.

Users can adjust the airbags for varying loads and road conditions by simply inflating or deflating them. Firestone Ride-Rite airbags provide extra support for leaf suspensions in light trucks, vans, Utes, 4WDs, SUVs, caravans and motor homes.

The air springs do not increase the vehicle’s load capacity, and are only designed to optimise the performance within the vehicle’s limitations. Users should not exceed the Gross Vehicle Mass (GVM) when using the air springs.

All Air also offers a large range of on-board air control kits and components that include compressors, gauges, switches, valves, fittings and tubing to complement any specific vehicle needs.
