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.
