Firestone Industrial Products has updated its 44-page air helper springs catalog so consumers and counter people can better select the right product for their vehicle. Included in the literature is an application guide listing part numbers along with detailed descriptions of the company’s Ride-Rite, Sport-Rite, Coil-Rite and Level-Rite products.
Firestone air springs are designed to help level the load, maximize load capacity and improve the ride and handling of cars, trucks, SUVs, vans and motorhomes. While Firestone air helper springs can be inflated like a tire, the company says it also offers onboard compressor kits so adjustments can easily be made from the driver’s seat at any time; many of the company’s kits offer time-saving no-drill installations.
Ride-Rite air helper springs are installed between the vehicle’s frame and suspension and offer added load support in addition to vehicle leveling; load-carrying capacities vary between 3,000 and 5,000 pounds per set.
Sport-Rite air helper springs mount between the frame and the suspension to enhance the vehicle’s ride characteristics, while also keeping the vehicle level. Designed for small pickups, SUVs and vans, Sport-Rite air springs support up to 3,000 pounds per set.
Coil-Rite air helper springs mount inside an existing open coil spring suspension and allow for adjustable spring rates that are superior to standard coil springs. They support between 500 and 1,000 pounds per set.
Individual air springs, air components, service parts and air accessory systems are listed along with part numbers, detailed diagrams and descriptions. The catalog includes technical tips along with frequently asked questions and answers. In addition, dealers will find sales and marketing information describing the company’s preferred dealer program, website and point-of-sale materials.
