Firestone Industrial Products has released Ride-Rite air helper springs for the 2WD and 4WD Toyota Tundra. The springs help Tundra owners safely and comfortably tow heavy loads with varying load capacities and road conditions, the company said.

"Truck owners hauling heavy equipment or large campers need Ride-Rite air helper springs to help keep their vehicle level and improve steering while driving," said Paul Gibson, product manager, Firestone Industrial Products, Ride-Rite Division. "Because each of our systems are specifically designed for each application, we can help them maintain safe load-carrying capacity and ride quality for the Toyota Tundra."

According to the company, the system provides up to 5,000 lbs. of load-leveling capacity, as well as helps reduce tire wear, level off-center loads, maintain brake effectiveness and increase vehicle stability.
