What is an air ride equipped suspension system?
It might sound a bit complex but it is simply a better shock absorption system. Trucks and 18-wheelers are outfitted with air suspension systems to transport delicate goods and fragile equipment. This type of suspension system exchanges the customary steel leaf springs with a bag or bladder of compressed air to absorb road vibrations and bumps. The truck and the trailer’s cargo get less road vibration and a much smoother ride due to the significantly higher ratio of shock absorbency provided by an air ride suspension system. The trailer’s freight essentially glides on this cushion of air. The results practically eliminates both telescoping and compression damage you get with standard steel leaf springs. This is the best way to help ensure that your shipment of delicate goods is transported carefully and safely.
