Stiff steel factory suspensions must compromise between ride comfort and load hauling capacity. Smooth ride suspensions can’t carry heavy loads; heavy springs ride rough, especially when the vehicle is unloaded.
Polyair adjustable air springs solve these problems by allowing you to tune your suspension under all load and road conditions. Just add air when towing or hauling and then remove air for a softer ride when unloaded.
Coil spring fitment
With coil springs, the Polyair unit is fitted into the coils. Hoses are attached with one end connected to each air spring and the other attached to a valve mounted on the vehicle to allow air pressure to be altered. A pressure increase of between 5 to 25 psi will give a load increase between 10 to 60%.
Leaf spring fitment
For leaf spring suspension, the air springs are supplied with their own auxiliary coil spring. One end of the air lift coil is attached to the leaf spring by the brackets provided, the other is bolted to the vehicle’s frame. Hoses are then attached in the same way as on coil spring vehicles. Kits come complete with all necessary hardware, air lines, and valves. A pressure increase of between 5 to 25 psi will give a load increase between 10 to 60%.
For heavy duty applications on leaf spring suspension, the bellow air system is supplied with their own vehicle specific brackets and unique flex member bag designed to carry up to the GVM of the vehicle, while maintaining normal ride characteristics when unladen. A pressure increase of between 5 to 100 psi will give a load increase between 10 to 60%. All kits come complete with all necessary hardware and allows for individual adjustments.
