AirCell: Static Load Support from Air Lift

When manufacturers decide on a suspension specification, they generally choose settings that the majority of drivers will be comfortable with. This may mean that, for a truck, they’d look at two or three occupants and maybe a ton of cargo as the design specification. But what if you needed to attach a snow plow?

A ten foot plow could weigh 1,000 pounds, or more. It’s obvious the springs that the vehicle left the factory with would never cope.

The solutions to this fairly common problem range from fitting replacement steel overload springs to bolting on hollow rubber springs; or adding spacers to the spring seats. Nevertheless, there are several problems associated with these solutions:

  • The costs incurred to replace springs can be substantial
  • The unladen ride is usually uncomfortably harsh
  • The vehicle has to be lifted so that the modifications can be carried out

Made from the same rugged material as factory jounce bumpers, AirCell is a low cost, maintenance-free microcellular urethane spring. Designed to reduce squat and enhance ride comfort in vehicles with constant loads, AirCell costs about half the price of steel overload springs while providing a better ride than steel or rubber load supports.
