Hellwig offers a choice of air compressors to inflate and operate Hellwig coil-to-air conversion springs, Big Wig heavy duty air springs, Lifted air springs that increase ride height, and more. If you’ll be using your air compressor infrequently to haul or tow loads during occasional weekend use, Hellwig’s Standard Air Compressor gives you great value by including the features you need and leaving off the ones you prefer not to pay extra for. Unlike heavier duty compressors, the Standard one operates both springs in tandem via a single paddle valve control switch and displays your pressure via a single-needle analog pressure gauge.

If you’ll be using your truck frequently for work, the Hellwig Heavy Duty air compressor features a higher 33% duty cycle – meaning it can be used continuously one-third of the time between cool-down periods of twice the duration. Heavy Duty air compressors add a 1-gallon reservoir tank to store pressure for instant spring operation before the compressor spools pressure up. Additionally, the tank of compressed air allows any of the Hellwig air springs to rise at a faster rate. Heavy Duty air compressors are designed to allow individual control of left- and right-position springs for side-to-side leveling, and a dual-needle analog gauge provides monitoring of the pressure in each of those springs.

If you prefer automatic height leveling, the Universal Auto Level Air Compressor features the same design and benefits as the regular Heavy-Duty compressor, but adds automatic on-off operation that lowers or raises your rear to maintain a level ride height. Because left- and right-side springs can be controlled independently of one another, the compressor can also boost one side of the vehicle more should loads be piled in your bed unevenly. For Heavy-Duty and Universal Auto Level Air Compressors, you’ll need the Modular Compressor Plate designed to mount them on the frame of Ford, General Motors, and Dodge vehicles. Drilling may be required for installation in all cases.

Hellwig’s history began in 1941 with a patent Rudy Hellwig had been granted for an overload spring design he had developed and perfected. Hammering out the springs by hand in a rented blacksmith shop in Kansas, Rudy moved to California after the end of World War II steel rationing made materials more widely available. Founding Hellwig Products in 1946 out of Glendale, California, Rudy began manufacturing springs that restored ride height, stability, and control to trucks and campers weighed down with heavy cargo. Rudy’s philosophy was to build products that exceed a customer’s expectations in both performance and durability, and his business practices of taking care of customers after a sale quickly built the company a positive reputation. After a 1963 Hot Rod Magazine feature showed how effectively Hellwig adjustable stabilizers eliminated handling problems inherent in stock Chevrolet Corvair suspensions, word of the company’s products spread. In the late 1960s, Hellwig expanded and relocated to their current headquarters in Visalia, California. Hellwig remains a family-owned business with a 4th generation actively and passionately involved today, and looks to the future with excitement of developing and refining products for an ever changing market. CARiD is proud to offer the best values you’ll find on a full range of Hellwig helper leaf springs, air springs, sway bars, end links, air compressors, and value-packed upgrade kits designed to enhance vehicle control both on and off the pavement.

Hellwig Products Company, Inc., give you, the original retail consumer, our warranty that each new Hellwig product of our manufacture shall be free from defects of material and workmanship as set forth in this limited warranty. Length of coverage: Except as provided below Hellwig offers the following warranty durations by products. (A) Hellwig steel spring and sway bar products and their components are warranted for the normal life of the vehicle these products are originally installed upon. (B) Hellwig Air Suspension systems, air sleeves, air bellows and air compressor systems are warranted for two years from the original purchase date. This extends only to the product installed on the original vehicle. A dated receipt will be required to be presented at the time of any warranty request. The warranty for any Hellwig product is terminated immediately and automatically when (1) you transfer ownership of the product to someone else (2) it is used for purpose not intended, whether with your consent or not (3) the product is installed on a second vehicle, regardless of when the second installation takes place. Because of these provisions, the warranty is not transferrable. Hellwig’s Obligations: Hellwig’s Obligations shall be limited to replacing or repairing, free of charge, any part or parts that reasonably appear to us upon inspection to have been defective in material and/or workmanship. You will be responsible for the cost of transportation charges and charges in connection with replacement or repair of defective parts. Warranty Exclusions and Limitations: This limited warranty does not cover the following, and you will be responsible for any costs or injury you sustain by reason of these things: Parts and labor necessary for installation, removal, reinstallation, vehicle modification, or any vehicle repair, service or replacement, regardless of cause; Any repairs or replacement of the product by anyone other than Hellwig at its Visalia, California plant pursuant to this warranty; Unreasonable use, failure to install or maintain the product properly, modification of the product or failure attributable to a defect in the vehicle; towing, fire, theft, environmental condition, or negligent, accidental or intentional damage or destruction; Any repairs or replacement if the product was used in a vehicle used at any time for delivery or common carrier service; Provision or reimbursement for loaned vehicles or parts for use while the product is being serviced; Incidental or consequential damages (that is, compensation for loss of use of the product or vehicle, inconvenience, lost profits, or any other indirect loss). Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so this limitation or exclusion any may not apply to you. Because installation and removal are not covered by this warranty, we recommend that you inspect the installation of each Hellwig product, especially sway bars and accessories springs, to insure that the product was installed safely and presents beyond a reasonable doubt no danger to any other part(s) of the vehicle such as brake lines, gas lines, sewer lines, or the chassis. How to Obtain Service: To obtain warranty replacement parts or repair, we must first be contacted by letter or telephone. Written or verbal approval will be given to you by an authorized Hellwig employee and you must then return the part to be replaced or repaired, at our option, freight prepaid, to our factory. The replacement part will be shipped within thirty (30) days following our receipt of the original part and, if requested by us previously, a freight charge or handling charge, or both. BE SURE TO OBTAIN OUR APPROVAL BEFORE RETURNING PRODUCTS FOR OUR FACTORY; THEY WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED UNTIL YOU OBTAIN APPROVAL. Important Provisions Regarding Your Rights Outside the Warranty: The duration of any IMPLIED WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY (an unwritten warranty sometimes imposed by law that the product is fit for ordinary use), if any or FITNESS FOR USE (an unwritten warranty sometimes imposed by law that the product is fit for a particular purpose), if any SHALL TERMINATED UPON TERMINATION OF THIS LIMITED WARRANTY, or sooner if allowed by law. Some states do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, so the above limitation may not apply to you.
