Airmax suspension kits use Firestone air springs and have long been a popular option for drivers who want extra support for payload capacity. Once installed, the Firestone air springs can be adjusted to meet the demands of a given load. Adjustments for more or less pressure are made via air lines that extend from the Firestone air springs to the rear of the vehicle in manual setups.
If you only tow a few times a year, this is a cost-effective solution. If you are regularly hauling heavy loads or towing a camper, trailer, caravan or boat, we recommend using an on-board air compressor system. Air springs require minimum air pressure at all times, typically 0.35 bar depending on the specific part to prevent them from damage. You now have air at your finger tips and the ability to monitor the pressure at all times.
One of the most valuable benefits of Airmax suspension kits is their adjustability. With an increase or decrease in the amount of air pressure in each air spring, you can adjust the suspension for lights loads, heavy loads or no load at all.
People often ask, ” Do air helper springs really work?” The answer is yes, absolutely. Airmax suspension kits offer a huge advantage for trips that involve uneven loads. For example, if the load you carry leans toward the right side or left side of the vehicle, the air bags can be adjusted to accommodate this issue.
