While air suspension systems offer numerous benefits, they consist of complex designs with a variety of added parts that can wear out and fail. The system may show early warning signs of a problem such as vehicle ride height dropping overnight, or it may catastrophically fail - leaving your vehicle resting so low against bump stops that it cannot be driven. Whether your vehicle is sagging evenly or in just one corner, you’re facing a high cost for parts and labor to replace what has failed. Whether or not you can afford such repairs at the time they happen, the unfortunate truth is air suspension problems cannot be postponed or ignored.
The rubber air bags, or air bellows, within air springs typically fail over time due to wet rot, old age, or excessive moisture buildup from within. Debris and rocks from the road can puncture air bags, and air lines can leak due to improper rubbing against the vehicle chassis or moving suspension components. Once there’s a leak, air compressors can burn out from overwork trying to maintain pressure in a leaky system. The dryer unit that removes moisture from within the system can become saturated and ineffective, leading to corrosion of parts from within.
If you prefer the simplicity and maintenance-free nature of traditional metal coil springs and shock absorbers, Arnott offers conversion kits that let you remove your vehicle’s air springs and deactivate the rest of the system. Coil springs and shock absorbers are designed specifically for your make and model, and they are designed to bolt on right to the existing mounting points that your air springs formerly used. While you may lose some of the adaptability air suspension systems provide, Arnott’s coil springs feature a variable spring rate that provides a softer, more comfortable ride that progresses to a firmer ride under load - all completely without the help of complex electronics, motors, and pressurized air parts. Based on the design of your vehicle, your kit may include rubber spring pads or shims.
Founded in Florida in 1989, Arnott® Incorporated began with self-taught knowledge of air springs by a father and son team who performed repairs on air suspension systems on vehicles so equipped across their home state of Florida. Word of the Arnott’s mechanical expertise on air springs spread to a growing customer base eager to hire them, inspiring them to design and produce their own equipment, beginning in 1994. Since then, Arnott has continued to specialize in high quality components for air suspension components only, and faithfully builds all parts they sell to equal or greater levels of quality and durability than manufacturers do – matching or improving on the materials, design, and thickness of seals to name just a few things. Cost savings and great values come not from cheaper construction, lack of product testing, or cut-rate labor from questionable locations, but from the absence of markup that new car dealers and manufacturers subject customers to. Arnott proudly manufacturers and re-manufactures air springs and other suspension kits in the United States.
