Bellows Air Bag Kits are specifically designed to maximise the safe load carrying capacity and stability of the vehicle, without increasing the manufacturers Gross Vehicle Mass (GVM)
Maintains front to rear level, hence improves braking effectiveness, and improved steering control with heavy loads or heavy towing. eg Slide-on Campers, Water Tanks/Fire units, Horse floats, Boats and Caravans. Increases side stability for extra high loads.
Adjustable to suit varied load mass, even varying inflation in each bag to achieve side to side adjustment.
LTG 4×4 can supply XHD springs but if your vehicle does big outback trips with heaps of weight and suspension articulation (eg Canning Stock Route, Simpson Desert Crossing, Cape York etc), then airbags will provide not only ‘load assist’ but also limit shock-absorber overheat and shock-absorber tower failure.
It is not recommended that Airbags ONLY are used, except for moderate use on reasonable roads. The single point loading that comes from not sharing the load into the chassis via the spring mounts (hence 3 load points for leaf spring vehicles) can result in chassis damage in excessively loaded vehicles driven over harsh terrain.
If used in conjunction with replacement springs, the load is shared into the 3 points of the chassis, hence substantially reducing any risk of chassis problems.
Maximum capacity is 2.2T @ 100psi, but vary the pressure to suit the load. Maximum pressure is 400psi. The Air Bags are inflated by 2 separate schraeder valves, so that when cornering air is not pushed from one side into the other – hence making body roll worse.
LTG 4×4 recommends the Poly Air range of ‘in-coil’ air bags.
The RED Range have a maximum load carrying capacity of 1.0T @ 30psi, but vary the pressure to suit the load.
The Black Range theoretically have the same capacity, but the maximum pressure is 60psi. The bags are considerably thicker, more robust and can withstand the harshest of treatment.
The Air Bags are inflated by 2 separate schraeder valves, so that when cornering air is not pushed from one side into the other – hence making body roll worse. Air Bags provide a lot of stability when carrying heavy loads.
