, including the 2009 Dodge Ram 1500, Ford F-Series and Nissan Titan.

Work-Rite is an entry-level load management system featuring micro-cellular urethane load assist springs that are mounted to the vehicle's frame to supplement the factory suspension. The progressive load-deflection characteristics enable the Work-Rite load assist springs to absorb road shock, support weight and improve ride comfort for loaded vehicles. When the vehicle is unloaded, Work-Rite won't compromise the ride, according to Firestone Industrial.

The Work-Rite springs are offered in three densities and two heights, 3.7 inches and 5.2 inches. Work-Rite load assist springs do not increase the load-carrying capacity of the vehicle.

"With six separate spring-and-stiffness combinations, our Work-Rite system is not a one-size-fits-all solution," said Todd Green, regional sales manager in the Ride-Rite division of Firestone Industrial Products. "It is designed to eliminate spring sag, increase vehicle stability and prevent bottoming out. And because there is no air pressure to monitor, the system works well for fleets and constant-load applications where a maintenance-free solution is desired."

The kit includes load assist springs, brackets, comprehensive instructions and all necessary mounting hardware.
