Firestone Industrial Products releases 2011 product catalog

2011 Firestone CatalogINDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – The latest air helper spring suspension products and accessories are highlighted in a new 2011 catalog and application guide available from Firestone Industrial Products Company.

 Designed to help level your vehicle, maximize load capacity and improve a vehicle’s ride, Firestone’s complete suspension solutions include Ride-Rite, Sport-Rite, Coil-Rite and Level-Rite air helper springs; Work-Rite load assist springs; and the R4Tech hybrid air/leaf suspension system. The R4Tech system, which has Firestone Ride-Rite air spring and SANLUIS Rassini(r) suspension technologies, is designed to replace the factory leaf spring suspension to deliver an improved ride at all times by utilizing the variable spring rate of the air spring to stiffen when the truck is loaded and soften when unloaded.

 Firestone’s catalog features detailed descriptions on their newest products for today’s cars, trucks, SUVs, vans, motor homes and RVs, including the Dodge Ram 1500 Rear Coil to Air Conversion System – a no-drill, full air conversion kit that is designed to completely replace the factory coil spring with an air spring, converting the rear suspension to an Airide suspension for higher leveling capacity (up to the Gross Vehicle Weight Rating [GVWR] of the vehicle) than traditional systems. An overview of the company’s custom components for hot rods and unique builds – including air springs, compressors and air tanks – is also showcased.

In addition to the catalog, Firestone offers 2011 application guides that allow dealers to quickly search parts by vehicle make and model for both its Ride-Rite and R4Tech lines. The application guides feature a reverse parts lookup of the most popular kits as well.

 Firestone’s 2011 catalog and application guide are available to download from its website, which also features new installation and application videos highlighting the products’ attributes. For more information, visit
