Torklift International in Sumner, Washington, has developed a suspension upgrade, called the Quick Disconnect StableLoad, to make trucks easier to handle when hauling or towing heavy loads.
“This affordable suspension upgrade is easy to install and dramatically reduces the truck’s side-to-side sway, porpoising, bucking and puts the driver back in control of the vehicle,” said Jay Taylor, the company’s general manager. “Our customers explained to us they felt out of control when hauling heavy loads like truck campers or towing trailers with a lot of tongue weight like toy haulers or equipment trailers.”
The Quick Disconnect StableLoad is attached to the leaf spring and can be engaged and disengaged in seconds. The unit is designed for vehicles with lower overload springs with a half-inch hole. Drilling is not required for installation.
Taylor said the product works by putting the overload leaf spring to work much sooner while stabilizing the suspension and the truck’s load. “Airbags are not required for use with this suspension upgrade,” he said, “and if you have airbags, this will allow you to lower your airbag pressure, thus preserving your airbags.”
The Quick Disconnect StableLoad has a suggested retail price of $245. For more information, visit torklift.com.
