Firestone Industrial Products Company announced the availability of its 2010 air helper springs catalogue detailing products and accessories available for today’s cars, trucks, SUVs, vans, motor homes and RVs.
The 58-page catalogue features detailed descriptions of Firestone’s air helper springs, which are designed to help level vehicles, maximize load capacity and improve a vehicle’s ride. Firestone’s latest product offerings are highlighted in the new catalogue, including the R4Tech hybrid air/leaf suspension system featuring Firestone Ride-Rite air spring and SANLUIS Rassini suspension technologies.
The R4Tech system is designed to replace the factory leaf spring suspension to deliver an improved ride at all times by utilizing the variable spring rate of the air spring to stiffen when the truck is loaded and soften when unloaded.
Firestone’s catalogue also features Work-Rite load assist springs – an entry-level load management system featuring progressive load-deflection characteristics that enable the load assist springs to absorb road shock, support weight and improve ride comfort for loaded vehicles – and the company’s new Ride-Rite LS load adaptive shocks, which are designed as an upgrade to the company’s Ride-Rite kits.
The catalogue includes a complete application guide that lets interested buyers quickly search parts by vehicle make and model. In addition, the catalogue has an “Application Guide by Kit” – a reverse parts lookup of the top 25 Ride-Rite kits, as well as the top 10 Coil-Rite and Work-Rite kits, along with the vehicles they are designed to fit. An application guide for the R4Tech system is also included. Users of the catalogue will find individual air springs, air components, service parts and air accessory systems listed with part numbers and descriptions.
