September 21, 2007, Newsletter Issue #81: Air Springs

Tip of the Week

Air springs are also just what they sound like. They are made with a metal air tight cylinder that holds the air and uses its compression to absorb energy from your wheels. They can be used in place of conventional coil springs and can be used by custom car makers to raise or lower a vehicle on demand. Air springs are also a popular aftermarket auto part as they can be installed within coil car springs or between the axle of your car or truck to give lift support for handling heavy loads within the vehicle or for towing heavy trailers.
