Hellwig Products has released its bolt-on air spring suspension system for 2017 to 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, according to the company.
Super Duty owners will be able to level their vehicle and restore it to a proper ride height, improving the truck’s safety by transferring weight back on the front tires for better braking and steering.
The Big Wig Air Springs (part No. 6114) are available for the four-wheel drive F-350 and F-450 Dually pickup trucks (replacing part No. 6112.) 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, according to the company.
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 No. 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, the auto-leveling compressor kit is available (part No. 4880).
