Firestone Industrial Products announces two, new, no-drill Ride-Rite air helper spring kits for the 2011 Ford Super Duty F-250/F-350.
Designed to mount between the truck’s frame and the suspension, Firestone’s Ride-Rite kits use air pressure to help maximize the truck’s safe load carrying capacity, stability and ride quality. Featuring individual inflation valves for separate side-to-side or front-to-rear adjustment, the air helper springs also assist in leveling off-center loads.
“Our latest Ride-Rite air helper spring kits, which are available for gas and diesel versions of the new Ford Super Duty, are designed to meet the needs of today’s drivers who often use their trucks for both work and play, to haul equipment or tow the family camper,” said Todd Green, regional sales manager, Firestone Industrial Products, Ride-Rite division. “By using air pressure, we are able to offer such benefits as increased vehicle stability, brake effectiveness and reduced tire wear. Varying the air pressure in our air springs allows the driver to keep the vehicle level under a load while maintaining the ride quality.”
Firestone’s no-drill kits use the truck’s factory holes and include all the components necessary for an easy installation that typically takes less than one hour, including the brackets, air springs, hardware, air lines and separate valves. The kits come with a two-year limited warranty and have an MSRP of $481.36. Part #2520 fits gas engine trucks and part #2535 fits diesel 2WD and 4WD models with the factory in-bed hitch.
The Air-Rite™ air accessory system is also available to complement the 2011 Ford Ride-Rite kits, enabling drivers to make instant air pressure adjustments with the push of a button installed on the dashboard.
A pair of Firestone 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]).
