A truck's stock suspension is designed to provide a compromise of ride comfort and the ability to safely haul or tow a payload. If your truck does a lot of towing or hauling, you may find that the rear suspension can sag, which is detrimental to your truck's handling. A similar problem can occur on the front of trucks that are used to plow snow. The best way to overcome this issue and improve your truck's ability to handle extra weight is by installing a set of air springs, the key component of air bag suspension.
HOW IT WORKS
Air springs install either between your truck's leaf springs and frame or inside its coil springs. Working in conjunction with an air compressor, they provide additional support at the front or rear of your vehicle, allowing you to maintain a level ride height when hauling a heavy payload. These air springs are adjustable, giving you the ability to inflate and deflate the bags manually or via remote control. You can even adjust the bags individually, which improves handling when you're carrying a heavy, uneven load. This degree of control allows you to create the perfect balance of load support and ride comfort with no compromises.
