Firestone Air Helper Springs for Toyota Tundras
January 2008, TruckingInfo.com - Feature
Firestone Industrial Products Co. says its Ride-Rite air helper springs are available for the new Toyota Tundra, both 2WD and 4WD.
The Ride-Rite kit provides heavy-duty support for Tundra
owners to tow heavy loads by using air pressure to adjust Firestone's air helper springs, compensating for varying load capacities and road conditions.
Additional benefits of Ride-Rite systems include maintaining braking effectiveness, reducing tire wear, leveling off-center loads - individual inflation valves allow for separate side-to-side adjustment - and increasing vehicle stability.
A pair of Ride-Rite air springs provides up to 5,000 pounds of load leveling capacity
Firestone's Tundra Ride-Rite kit includes everything needed for an easy installation that typically takes less than one hour and comes with a two-year limited warranty. The system's reinforced double convoluted air springs install between the frame and the axle, and the kit utilizes the vehicle's factory holes for "no drill" installation.
Firestone also offers the Air-Rite air accessory system to complement the Tundra Ride-Rite kit, which enables drivers to make air pressure adjustments with a push of a button installed on the dashboard.
