FIRESTONE ANNOUNCES NEW WORK-RITE KITS IDEAL
FOR TRUCKS CARRYING ADDITIONAL WEIGHT ON THE FRONT
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – Several new Work-Rite(tm) suspension kits have been developed by Firestone Industrial Products Company, LLC to provide added support to trucks carrying extra weight on the front with equipment like snow plows and winches.
 
Designed to help level the front end of vehicles, Firestone’s latest Work-Rite applications are available for 1994-2011 Dodge Ram 2500/3500 4WD trucks (part #8621); 1999-2010 Chevrolet and GMC 2500 HD/3500 HD trucks (part #8629); and 2011 Chevrolet/GMC 2500 HD/3500 HD models (part #8635).
 
The Work-Rite suspension kit, an entry-level load management system, features micro-cellular urethane load assist springs that are mounted to the vehicle’s frame to supplement its factory suspension.  The Work-Rite springs are offered in three densities that provide three separate spring-rates identified by color – white for 1/2-ton trucks, gray for 3/4-ton trucks and black for 1-ton trucks.  In addition, Firestone offers the springs in two heights, 3.7 inches and 5.2 inches, to optimize performance for each application. 
 
“Our Work-Rite suspension solutions feature progressive load-deflection characteristics that are designed to help the load assist springs absorb road shock, support weight and improve ride comfort for front-loaded vehicles,” said Todd Green, regional sales manager, Firestone Industrial Products Ride-Rite(tm) division.  “The ride quality is not compromised when the vehicle is unloaded, making the Work-Rite system an ideal solution for trucks used in seasonal work such as snow removal, where equipment is frequently added or removed.”
 
Most Work-Rite kits offer a no-drill design and can be adjusted by the end user for their specific loading scenario using spacers provided in the kit.  The kit includes load assist springs, brackets, comprehensive instructions and all necessary mounting hardware for an easy installation that requires basic hand tools and takes less than an hour.  A complete list of applications is available by vehicle at http://www.ride-rite.com.
 
Work-Rite load assist springs do not increase the load-carrying capacity of the vehicle.  Do not exceed the vehicle’s recommended Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR).  Trained technicians are available toll-free (800.888.0650) to answer any product application, installation or warranty questions Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. EST.
 
Firestone offers a line of Complete Suspension Solutions that includes Ride-Rite(tm), Sport-Rite(tm), Coil-Rite(tm) and Level-Rite(tm) air helper springs; Work-Rite(tm) load assist springs; and the R4Tech(tm) hybrid air/leaf suspension system.  These products have become synonymous with quality, durability and outstanding customer support.  For more information, visit http://www.ride-rite.com.
