Hellwig Products, an industry-leading manufacturer of towing, hauling and performance suspension products, recently released its bolt-on air spring suspension system for 2017-2019 Ford F-350 and F-450 dually pickup trucks. The Big Wig’s 5,600-pound springs allow Super Duty owners to tow and haul heavy loads with improved safety, stability and comfort by maintaining a level ride height, improving overall drive control.
The 2019 Ford Super Duty series is one of the hottest trucks on the market, thanks to its formidable and capable Power Stroke® V8 turbo diesel engine. While these new trucks may be rated to tow and haul heavy loads, the weight of a heavy trailer or load in the bed will still cause these trucks to ride low in the rear, impacting driver control and safety. Thanks to Hellwig, Super Duty owners will be able to properly level their vehicle and restore it to a proper ride height, thus improving not only the truck’s appearance but also its safety by transferring weight back on the front tires for better braking, steering, and more even wear.
The Big Wig Air Springs Part #6114 are available for the four-wheel drive F-350 and F-450 Dually pickup trucks (replacing Part #6112.) Recently reviewed here on Truck Camper Adventure. these kits feature a 2,800-pound air spring for each side and heavy-duty bulletproof bracket engineered to withstand the most demanding loads. The Big Wig air springs are 3 inches larger in diameter and up to 3 inches taller than those used by many other manufacturers. These larger springs require less air pressure for the same load, resulting in a softer spring rate, a more comfortable ride, and increased level load carrying capacity up to the manufacturer’s GVWR.
Hellwig’s bolt-on air springs allow for quick adjustments in air pressure to match the load and can even be configured independently to level out uneven loads. When paired with the optional compressor and tank mount (Part #4893) the air pressure can be adjusted on the fly, allowing for quick load corrections without service station assistance. For hands free level load capabilities use our auto leveling compressor kit part #4880.
The Hellwig Air Springs can be installed easily with simple hand tools and includes all necessary parts. Similarly, the optional compressors and tank mount include all necessary parts and hardware. Hellwig air springs come with a limited lifetime warranty. For more information on Hellwig’s Ford Super Duty Air Springs visit www.hellwigproducts.com
