Following is a brief description of the types of air suspension systems we supply and a brief outline of the advantages gained from have an air suspension or semi air suspension fitted.
With standard leaf spring suspension, the ride height of a vehicle will alter significantly between laden and unladen conditions, a factor which can lead to instability and ground clearance problems, particularly under heavy loading conditions.
Driverite Air Helper Springs can be installed on most 4 wheel drive's and light commercial vehicles i.e tow trucks, motorhomes, 4WDs, SUV's, minibuses, delivery vehicles and vans. The air helper springs are installed between the frame of the vehicle and the suspension providing load support through the use of air pressure.
