Sway bars, or more accurately anti-roll bars, are designed to resist a vehicle’s tendency to pitch from side to side during cornering, improving cornering ability and making for a more comfortable controlled ride. Sway bars are among the most cost effective and dramatic improvements that you can make to your vehicle regardless of whether it’s a truck, muscle car, tow rig, or RV. Sway bars are also typically easy to install, making them a great first upgrade for anyone who wants a little more control out of their ride.
Hellwig Helper Springs are designed to sit on top of the leaf springs at the rear of your truck and work in conjunction with the stock spring pack to effectively increase the level load rating of your truck up to the vehicle’s gross vehicle weight rating. Hellwig Helper Springs are adjustable, easy to install and come with all the necessary hardware to make installation painless. Hellwig offers several types of Helper Springs, each with different load capacities and applications in mind. Like all of Hellwig’s steel products, they are forged in California in Hellwig’s ISO9001 certified factory and come with Hellwig’s limited life-time warranty.
Hellwig air suspension systems features a pair of high quality air bags that mount to your vehicle’s rear axle and can be connected to an optional on-board compressor with a controller and pressure gauge in the vehicle’s cab. When installed properly, Hellwig’s load levelling air suspension can also lead to less bottoming out of the vehicle’s suspension and increased stability during cornering. The air suspension is a little more complicated to install than a standard set of helper springs but is certainly something that can be tackled by a skilled amateur.
