Hellwig Products Debuts Helper Springs for the Ford Transit Vans


Hellwig Products releases new bolt-on single leaf helper springs for the 2016-17 Ford Transit cargo van and cutaway chassis, engineered for increased level load carrying capacity and improved safety.

Visalia, Calif. (October, 2017) – Hellwig Products, an industry leading manufacturer of towing, hauling and performance suspension products, has released its all-new single leaf helper springs for the 2016-17 Ford Transit. These helper springs allow Transit owners to transport and haul heavy loads with improved safety, stability and comfort by maintaining a level ride height for better overall driver control.

The newly redesigned 2016-17 Ford Transit has exploded onto the fleet scene thanks to its efficient and powerful V6 engine options, large cargo capacity and high payload ratings. But despite its high ratings, heavy loads like packages, tools, equipment, and other supplies will overly compress the van’s stock rear springs, causing it to sit low in the rear which negatively affects handling and braking. Now with Hellwig’s new Leaf Helper Springs, the Transit’s rear suspension can better support a load up to the vehicle’s rated GVWR, restoring it to a level ride height.

Hellwig’s new Helper Spring (Part # 1904) for the Ford Transit van features a single leaf helper spring rated for up to 2,500-pounds and will improve the handling, safety and driver control by helping maintain a level ride height on a loaded vehicle. The amount of load support can be easily adjusted using the end U-bolts to dial-in the spring rate to match the specific load and to level the vehicle left to right if the load is uneven. A level vehicle while not only improves aesthetics but puts weight back on the front tires leading to better braking, handling and tire wear. These Helper Springs fit both the cutaway chassis and cargo van version of the Transit but do not fit the passenger van models.

The Hellwig Ford Transit Helper Spring can be easily installed with simple hand tools and come with all necessary parts and hardware. Hellwig helper springs are made in the USA and come with a Lifetime Warranty on all steel parts. For more information on Hellwig’s Transit Helper springs visit www.HellwigProducts.com
