TWO NEW LOAD LEVELING OPTIONS FOR 2017 FORD SUPER DUTY TRUCKS
We have just released the first aftermarket helper springs for the 2017 Ford F-250 and F-350 Super Duty pickups. The Load Pro LP-25 and LP-35 Helper Springs allow Super Duty owners to better tow and haul heavy loads with improved safety, stability and comfort by maintaining a level ride height, improving overall drive control.
The all-new 2017 Ford Super Duty trucks are the most powerful and capable that Ford has ever produced. Their more powerful 6.7L Power Stroke V8 diesel engines outputs 440 hp and 925 lb-ft of torque, earning them best in class tow and payload ratings. While these new trucks may be rated to tow and haul their heaviest loads yet, the weight of a heavy trailer or load in the bed will still cause these trucks to ride low in the rear, reducing driver control and safety. Thanks to Hellwig’s three and four leaf Load Pro Helper Springs, now Super Duty owners will be able to properly redistribute the load and restore the vehicle to a level ride height, not only improving the looks of the truck but also the safety by placing weight back on the front tires for better braking, steering, and more even tire wear.
The Load Pro helper spring line for the 2017 Ford Super Duty features both the LP-25 three leaf stack rated for 2,500 lbs. and the LP-35 four leaf stack rated for up to 3,500 lbs. These bolt-on helper springs improve tow/haul performance by keeping the vehicle level even as loads approach the manufacturer’s maximum rating. The progressive rate of the Load Pro Helper Spring also means that the helper springs aren’t activated until a load is present, allowing the truck to drive like stock when unladen. Additionally, the user can further dial in the load support for an uneven side load through the adjustable U-bolts.
