Firestone Air Helper Springs Made for Dodge Sprinter
December 2007, TruckingInfo.com - Feature
Firestone Industrial Products Co. said its new Ride-Rite air helper spring kits are now available for the new Dodge Sprinter. The kit offers maximum load support and ride comfort by using air pressure to adjust Firestone's springs
to compensate for varying loads and road conditions - maintaining a quality ride at all times.
"The new Dodge Sprinter has more interior space, can seat up to 10 passengers and has extra storage facilities available when it is used as a mini-bus," said Paul Gibson, product manager of Firestone Industrial Products' Ride-Rite division. "Firestone's Ride-Rite air helper springs keep the Sprinter's leaf springs from sagging under the extra weight and causing possible damage."
Additionally, because Firestone's Ride-Rite kit works by keeping the vehicle level, it helps maintain brake effectiveness, reduce tire wear and bottoming out, level off-center loads (individual inflation valves allow for separate side-to-side adjustment) and increase vehicle stability.
"Plus, we're able to take full advantage of the Dodge Sprinter's load carrying because each Ride-Rite system is specifically designed for a particular application," Gibson added.
A pair of Ride-Rite air springs can provide up to 5,000 pounds of load-leveling capacity.
Firestone also offers the Air-Rite air accessory system that enables drivers to make air pressure adjustments with a push of a button installed on the dashboard.
