This patented air-over-leaf suspension uses a combination of lower rate rear leaf springs, air springs, trailing link, J-springs, brackets, air compressor and adaptive shocks. Installation on many applications required little or no drilling by mounting to exiting mounting hole or brackets. Once installed this Firestone R4Tech suspension will provide a suspension unmatched in ride quality, durability and reliability.

Why Buy R4Tech: There is a reason big rigs use air suspension. Air suspension will generally provide a better ride than steel suspensions.
