This is a brand new air bag load assist kit to suit the rear of the following vehicles: DODGE RAM 1500 PICK UP – DS and DT

At AAA we own a RAM 1500 express and we love it. At least twice a week we are forklifting loads in and out of the back – picking up steel from laser cutters or taking bulk brackets to powder coaters.  For us the RAM represents a man-sized work ute. But being a RAM owner we can speak openly and discuss the fact that RAM are pretty lousy at carrying a heavy load on their own. Come to think of it – it’s one of very few utes at all that have coils in the back which is great for comfort but the buck stops there. Suspenion in general is about compromises – enjoying a comfortable ride with soft coils means we can’t also expect to carry a heavy load well. Vehicles that can carry a heavier load tend to be less comfortable unloaded. This applies to every car. Just 300Kg will make the rear of a RAM squat down and that’s a bit disappointing for such a big ute.  But that’s where our AAA Coil Assist kit saves the day.

The AAA kit replaces the rubber bump stop which is mounted directly under the chassis and over the axle. It sits beside the coil so the coil remains in the car – that’s peace of mind for those who may worry if something untoward were to happen to the bag they still at least have the coil. And being your new bump stop you want some cushion effect so when unloaded you want 10-15 psi in the bags to maintain that cushion without adding lift and stiffness. So we have kept that comfortable ride quality we enjoy.

Then as you load up just add more air to the bags. The rule of thumb being just add what ever it takes to keep it at standard height. If it helps we run about 40 psi when we tow a 22′ caravan and we go to about 60 psi when we have about 800Kg of steel in the back.

Unlike coil inserts which are only rated to 450Kg (and they wear out quickly) the AAA coil assist kit is rated to 2.5t so that’s a rating of 2.5t of additional weight over the rear axle – but the limiting factor is more your GVM and the vehicle’s ability to stop with such heavy loads. Just know the AAA bags are good for what ever you throw at them.

The AAA coil assit kit also comes with a 10 year new for old warranty. There are no rubbing surfaces or moving parts and the rubber in the bags is heavier than that in the sidewalls of your tyres and the bags aren’t on the road like your tyres are.
