If your truck or SUV is the go-to workhorse for towing and hauling a wide range of heavy cargo loads, then being able to adjust your suspension performance is a vital safety factor.

That’s simply because your truck or SUV’s ride characteristics can change dramatically depending on the size, weight, and location of whatever’s in your bed or on your trailer.

But the good folks at Firestone alleviate some of that stress with their Ride-Rite Air Helper Spring Kits.

These air helper springs fit between the frame of the vehicle and your suspension, providing load support through air pressure. Better still, they’re adjustable, so you can fine tune your suspension demands based on whatever you’ve got out back, be it a grand piano, hot rod, ostrich, or a load of gravel.

And that adjustability means both front-to-back and side-by-side, which is really handy if you’re hauling something oddly shaped (like that aforementioned ostrich).

Best of all, installation is often just an afternoon affair using simple hand tools.

All told, Firestone’s Ride-Rite Air Helper Spring Kits go a long, long way towards increasing vehicle stability and preventing premature wear on your existing chassis and suspension parts. They’re also compatible with most common hitch setups—including goosenecks.

Currently, Firestone’s got dozens of these kits available for plenty of popular truck, SUV, van, and RV models. Click here to see them all.
