Firestone Industrial Products recently introduced its Level-Rite air spring over damper suspension for the 2009 Dodge Ram 2500 and 3500, both 2WD and 4WD.
The new Level-Rite system helps level the front end of vehicles that carry additional weight on the front such as winches, snow plows, slide-in campers and Texas Style bumpers. Featuring a fully protected air spring paired with a high-performance Bilstein® monotube shock absorber, Firestone’s Level-Rite kits are designed to improve vehicle control and stability, reduce bottoming and suspension fatigue, and allow for control of front ground clearance.
“When weight is added to a vehicle’s front end by extra equipment and accessories, suspension components can begin to wear down prematurely,” said Todd Green, regional sales manager, Firestone Industrial Products, Ride-Rite™ division. “Level-Rite is designed to reduce suspension fatigue by preventing factory torsion bars and coil springs from sagging under heavy loads.”
Firestone offers the Dodge Ram Level-Rite kit (part #1004) with everything needed for an easy, no-drill installation that takes less than an hour. The kit includes air springs featuring billet aluminum pistons and restraining cylinders, high-performance shock absorbers, polyurethane bushings, air line tubing and fittings, and all necessary hardware. Level-Rite comes with a two-year limited warranty and optional air accessories, such as the Air-Rite air accessory system that lets drivers make air pressure adjustments with a push of a button installed on the dashboard.
