While we all feel our trucks do a great job at hauling and towing, we all want to add aftermarket products that are designed to improve that function. If we can save a little money in the process — bonus! Thankfully, RoadActive Suspension (RAS) can help with both.
If you have been contemplating the need for a RAS for your rig, there is no time like the present. According to Nolan Mast of RAS, “We want to let everyone know about our ‘Just In Time For Christmas’ promotion with up to $75.00 off at ActiveSuspension.com.”
I want to let you know that the RAS upgrade is not a “helper spring” in the traditional sense. The RoadActive suspension upgrade is a simple, bolt-on enhancement that converts your passive leaf-spring suspension into a mechanically active suspension to provide a perfect balance of improved load and road handling.
The RAS kit is a simple DIY upgrade to almost every leaf spring-equipped pickup truck and van with up to a 1-1/2-ton capacity. Once installed, no adjustments or maintenance are ever required. Speaking from personal experience, installation can be completed in roughly 30 minutes. Talk about an easy and beneficial upgrade!
The RoadActive Suspension kit uses variable-rate-tension coil springs that engage progressively to accommodate your heavy load. And while the RAS kit eliminates bottoming out, reduces sway and body roll like sway bars, and keeps your ride level like helper springs, it will also improve traction and braking control like traction bars.
In fact, several months ago we installed a set on a 2011 F-250 that frequently pulls a toy hauler, and you can read about the install and the results of how the bars help by checking out the article.
Let me finish by saying there is no time like the present, and I don’t know about you, but If I can save 75 bucks, I’m in. Anyway, Nolan says that all Heavy Duty (HD) kits will be $75 off and all Standard Duty (SD) kits will be $45 off until 12/17/2023. All orders will also include free ground shipping in the continental USA.
