Firestone’s Coil-Rite Kit was suitable for this Nissan Patrol Ute with a tradesman canopy & heavy tow ball weight when towing their offroad caravan.

With well placed easy to get to inlet valves the adjustment couldn’t be more simple.
Coil-Rite HD Air Bag Kit as fitted to this 150 Series Prado, maintains ride height whilst towing. Without increasing normal ride height or comfort by retaining original suspension, yet assisting spring control whilst laden. The customer didn’t wish to increase the original factory ride height, so we retained the OEM spring as it was brand new, and added the Coil-Rite kit to retain the correct tow ball height when towing his offroad camper. This the allows him to ‘air down’ the bags when not fully laden & hitched up, so his Prado rides as soft as standard as the families daily drive.
Older trucks that have already suffered from suspension fade would also be advised to replace both springs & shock absorbers, as airbags are not designed to replace the existing rear springs only assist them, and correct use will not damage truck.
Over inflation of bags not only risks damage to the bags, but also the chassis. Overinflation also defeats the purpose of your springs and shock asborbers as they cannot function correctly if your air bags are tacking all the load. It is important to remember that the over loading of your vehicle, regardless of towing ability could damage suspension & chassis components and is ILLEGAL.
For ALL suspension modifications it is essential to get the correct advise, as your suspension supplier you should ask lots of questions; and you should tell us how you intend to use your truck – whether for work or play, what roads you intend to travel – what may suit the mildly corrugated dirt road certainly will not handle the Connie Sue.
