Safety, stability of Nissan ute further enhanced by Ride Rite kit

Supplier: Air Springs Supply
28 October, 2013

The Nissan Patrol Ute can be used for anything from carrying equipment and cargo across harsh mining sites, to common recreational activities.

To help cope with these diverse demands, All-Air Suspension supplies a custom-engineered Ride-Rite rear leaf spring helper kit to further enhance the vehicle’s stability and safety.

The bolt in system is designed to assist the existing leaf springs providing hard working Utes with excellent ride, load carrying and adjustability. With an easy installation design, it’s a simple, effective method of protecting valuable cargo by avoiding spring sag and ensuring the vehicle always maintains correct height.

"The kits are engineered to maintain the safety and stability of vehicles across a huge range of operating conditions, under which they are expected to produce the same safe, stable and comfortable performance whether the vehicle is full, half full, empty, towing or with most of the weight on one side," James Maslin, All-Air general manager, said.

The Patrol Ute kit — specifically engineered by Airbag Man for the Patrol range — features heavy duty Firestone Airbags, which enhance steering and braking stability — even under a heavy load or with a trailer.

"One of the key benefits is that it reduces spring sag and stress on the suspension, which can decrease tyre wear and maintenance costs," Maslin said.

It is important to note that the air springs do not increase the vehicle’s load capacity — they are designed to optimise the performance, within the vehicle’s limitations. Users should not exceed the Gross Vehicle Mass (GVM).

Leaf springs can assist vehicles like the Nissan Patrol Ute in performing to design specifications without additional wear to the chassis or tyres, says All-Air Suspension.

All Air also has a large range of On-Board Air Control kits and components that include compressors, gauges, switches, valves, fittings and tubing, to complement any specific vehicle needs.
