Another great product from Airbag Man is the Air Suspension Helper to suit leaf springs (they also have the product to suit coil).
Firestone Ride-Rite airbags are designed to fit between a vehicles chassis and the axle / leaf spring to provide levelling control, front-to-rear and side-to-side, when a vehicle is under load.
The heavy duty double convoluted airbags are a two ply, reinforced rubber bellows.
You can adjust for varying loads and road conditions by simply inflating or deflating, just like inflating a tyre.
Firestone Ride-Rite airbags provide extra support for leaf suspensions in light trucks, vans, utes, 4WD’s, SUV’s, caravans and motorhomes.
Airbags are used for front-to-rear and side-to-side levelling control of a vehicle.
This enables a vehicle to “level up” when carrying heavy, uneven loads and when towing caravans, boats and trailers.
We have had our airbags fitted with a 1.6t caravan and now our new 3t off-road caravan and would not be without them.
The airbags are quick and easy to adjust the air pressures in the bags. As soon as we unhook for a longer period, we can let the air out of the bags to soften the ride and as soon as we hook back up to the van, just pump up the bags to your desired pressure and off you go.
If you want to adjust the ride height and pressure from inside the cab, you can purchase the digital gauge, separate controls for each bag and the air-compressor which can be fitted inside the vehicle for quick and easy adjustment while travelling.
