Hellwig now gives 2017 Ford Super Duty F250, F350, & F450 owners the availability to tow and haul heavy loads with improved safety, stability and comfort by maintaining a level ride height with their 2,800 lb big wig air springs, via Marken Performance.
The Big Wig Air Springs are available for F250 and F350 two-wheel drive trucks with single rear wheels (part #6116), and four wheel drive with up to a 2” lift (part # 6117) and with a 2-4” rear lift (part #6119). Kits are also available for the F350 and F450 four wheel drive and dually trucks with a stock ride height (part #6112) all available via Marken Performance.
The air springs are 3” larger in diameter and up to 3” 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 compliant ride, and increase level load carrying capacity up to the manufacturer’s GVWR.
While these new stock FORD SUPER DUTY trucks may be rated to tow and haul the heaviest loads of any Super Duty to date, 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, not only improving the truck’s appearance but also its safety by transferring weight back on the front tires for better braking, steering, and more even wear.
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 #4803) the air pressure can be adjusted on the fly, allowing for quick load corrections without service station assistance.
