Firestone Air Helper Springs Available for New Dodge Sprinter

December 6, 2007 - Press Release

Firestone Industrial Products Company has announced its Ride-Rite air helper spring kits are now available for the new Dodge Sprinter. The Dodge Sprinter Ride-Rite kit offers maximum load support and ride comfort by using air pressure to adjust Firestone's durable 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, Firestone Industrial Products, Ride-Rite division. "This means additional weight can be carried inside the van, putting stress on the suspension. 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 and increase vehicle stability. A pair of Ride-Rite air springs can provide up to 5,000 pounds of load leveling capacity. Firestone's new Dodge Sprinter Ride-Rite kit is a no-drill kit and is easily installed. It comes with a two-year limited warranty and includes everything needed for installation. The system's reinforced double convoluted air springs install between the frame and the axle.
