Installing an air bag system on a truck allows the customer to increase or decrease air pressure in the bags, changing the vehicle’s spring rate. This lets them adjust to the specific rate they need for their load but then they can air down the bags when unloaded for a factory ride. Leveling the truck with air suspension improves handling, tire wear, braking performance, safety, aesthetics and much more.
The Hellwig air suspension kits bolt onto the vehicle with no welding required and include all the components needed for the install. Each kit below comes with air line and Schrader valves to be filled from an external compressor but can be upgraded with one of Hellwig’s compressor kit options. All the brackets are made from heavy duty steel and are powdercoated for a weatherproof finish. Hellwig has a lifetime warranty on all steel parts which are manufactured at their factory in Visalia, CA.
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 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. Our website 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.
