Amsoil’s Synthetic Polymeric Truck, Chassis and Equipment Grease

A tube of grease is a lot cheaper than repairing a galled, frozen or damaged component and big trucks working in mud, snow, ice and salt spray need protection that’s up to the task.

Amsoil’s new Synthetic Polymeric Truck, Chassis and Equipment Grease provides extreme pressure performance under adverse conditions in medium and heavy-duty applications. This lithium-complex, synthetic- base grease stays in place longer than traditional greases and is resistant to grease pound out.

It’s recommended for heavily loaded chassis grease points, wheel bearings, axle assemblies, universal joints, pivot pins, fifth-wheel hitch plates, steering linkages, spring pins, king pins, ball joints, water pump bearings and other greased components.

Firestone Work-Rite Air-Helper Springs

Loaded or not, supplemental springs maintain ride quality

An entry level load management system, Firestone’s Work-Rite suspension features micro cellular urethane load assist springs that are mounted to the truck’s frame and supplement the factory suspension.

Progressive load deflection absorbs road shock and improves ride comfort when the truck is loaded, but won’t compromise ride quality when unloaded.

They don’t increase your load carrying capacity but do eliminate spring sag, increase stability and prevent bottoming out. Work-Rite springs are available in three densities for one-half, three-quarter, and one-ton trucks, and two heights: 3.7 and 5.2 inches.

They are available for many Chevrolet, GMC, Dodge, Ford and Nissan pickup trucks including the 2009 Dodge Ram 1500, Ford F-series and Nissan Titan.
