Air helper kits
Vehicles, and especially LCV chassis, are designed to manage a wide range of load conditions which inevitably leads to a compromise. Suspension solutions are developed for average loads, providing the maximum possible comfort when empty and at the same time providing necessary safety when fully loaded. Consequently, the suspension can be too strong, making the ride harsh for an unloaded vehicle. On the other hand, the suspension is too weak for permanently loaded vehicles causing premature wear of the steel suspension and an uncomfortable driving experience. This is especially a challenge for vehicles that have a permanent load like motorhomes.
Air helpers offer an adjustable solution to manage cases of more permissible gross weight or an increase in the maximum permissible axle load. The spring reinforcement optimizes the suspension, increasing the safety and usability of the vehicle. Due to not overstressing the suspension, air helper springs eliminate premature wear and tear and improve drivability, increasing the vehicle’s lifespan.
