The success of Firestone air springs in bus applications spurred the interest in truck and trailer applications as well as industrial shock and vibration isolation uses. Consequently, almost all of the busses, most of the Class 8 trucks and many of the trailers on the road today now ride on air springs, and significant advances in the design of control systems have opened the door to automotive applications as well.
Firestone Industrial Products Company is the world’s number one air spring manufacturer, with a history of more than 60 years of research and development of technologically advanced air springs. Utilization of air suspensions with Firestone Airride springs on commercial bus applications provides excellent vehicle stability and ideal passenger comfort.
Firestone air springs are designed to provide years and thousands of miles of trouble free service. The durability of Firestone air springs is such that they will often outlast other maintenance items on your suspension, such as bushings, shocks, leveling valves or regulators.
