Indianapolis, Ind.—Firestone Industrial Products Company LLC announces its Ride-Rite air helper spring kits are available for 2012 Dodge Ram 2500/3500 trucks, both 2WD and 4WD models (part #2299).
The Ride-Rite air helper spring kit is designed to use air pressure to help maximize the truck’s safe load carrying capacity, vehicle stability, ride quality and brake effectiveness. The system features individual inflation valves that allow for separate side-to-side or front-to-rear adjustment, which helps keep the vehicle level when carrying off-center loads and maintains ride quality under differing load conditions.
“Our popular Ride-Rite kits feature double convoluted air springs that provide maximum load support for trucks, which is important for maintaining proper steering control and braking effectiveness, reducing tire wear and keeping headlights properly aimed,” said Todd Green, regional sales manager, Firestone Industrial Products, Ride-Rite division.
Firestone’s no-drill Ride-Rite kit is designed to use the truck’s factory holes and mount between its frame and axle. All the necessary components are included for an easy installation that typically takes less than one hour: brackets, air springs, hardware, air lines and inflation valves. The kit comes with a limited lifetime warranty on the air springs and a two-year limited warranty on brackets/hardware.
Firestone also offers its Air-Rite air accessory system to complement the Ride-Rite kits, enabling drivers to make instant air pressure adjustments with the push of a button installed on the dashboard.
A pair of Ride-Rite air springs can provide up to 5,000 pounds of load leveling capacity. (Note: Air springs do not increase the load-carrying capacity of the vehicle. Do not exceed the vehicle’s recommended Gross Vehicle Weight Rating [GVWR]).
Firestone offers a line of Complete Suspension Solutions that includes Ride-Rite, Sport-Rite, Coil-Rite and Level-Rite air helper springs; Work-Rite load assist springs; and the R4Tech hybrid air/leaf suspension system.
