Congratulations - your new air helper springs are quality
products capable of improving the handling and comfort of your
vehicle. As with all products, proper installation is the key to

by the vehicle manufacturer (GVWR). Although your Air
Helper Springs are rated at a maximum inflation pressure

weight to the maximum allowed. Check your vehicle owner’s
manual or data plate on driver side door for maximum
loads listed for your vehicle.
When inflating your Air Helper Springs, add air pressure

P.S.I. Improper use or over inflation may cause property
damage or severe personal injury.
