TorkLift Vehicle Suspension TLA7200 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Torklift stable load suspension upgrade for upper overload springs. Now the stable load is designed to replace your trucks factory bump stop pads. The stable load pads are thicker, they're more durable which will result in better handling with less sway and body roll and bottoming out situations. This system is designed to dramatically improve handling by pre-activating your vehicles factory upper overload springs. What that is does is it simply helps to evenly distribute weight ensuring that the truck stays level for better handling and it's going to reduce side to side sway and side to side body roll. Now the angled structure of the unit maximizes the contact surface for more effective support. It's going to feature the tapered wedge which is going to contact a curve spring better than a flat pad would.

Vehicle Suspension Questions and Answers

  • How To Tell What Size Firestone Lift Spacers Are Needed On A Truck With A 6 Inch Lift Kit
  • To determine what size lift spacer to use on your vehicle with Firestone Ride-Rite Air Springs, measure the distance between the upper and lower brackets of your air helper spring kit, and whether the kit mounts on the leaf spring or the axle. The spacer needs to be the same length as the amount of lift applied to the axle on which the air helper spring is installed. The axle mount kit would have the lower bracket mounted to the axle. The leaf mount kit would have the lower bracket mounted...

  • Recommended Air Pressure of Firestone Ride Rite Air Springs # F2071 on Dodge Ram 3500 Dually
  • Other than saying that the air bags need to be kept between 5 and 100 psi, Firestone does not offer much in the way of specifics. The instructions mention that as a general rule of thumb, 1 psi will support approximately 40 lbs of load. Your best bet is to use enough pressure to level the vehicle, and then adjust plus or minus according to your personal preference. You can do this with the 5th wheel in place, and for the unloaded scenario. Keep in mind that using an air bag suspension...

  • How to Remove the Air Hose for the Firestone Sport-Rite Air Helper Springs
  • I made a short video for you showing you how to remove the air hose from the air line fittings on your Sport-Rite air helper springs. The main thing to remember is to have the collar on the fitting pushed down when removing the air hose. It may take a little elbow grease to remove, but it should release if the collar is held down.

  • Best Way to Prevent Sagging Suspension When Towing a Trailer
  • For sag from towing a trailer the best recommendation I can make is actually a weight distribution system. Suspension enhancement will help level your truck while towing. But the advantage to a weight distribution system is that it levels the vehicle by distributing the tongue weight of the trailer up to the front axle of the vehicle as well. This will help greatly with handling and braking, especially in an emergency situation. The best way to pick out a weight distribution system is...

  • Towing Capacity of a 2013 Toyota Tacoma 4.0 Double Cab 4x4 with Factory Tow Package
  • I can help you out, no problem. What you are going to want to look at is the towing capacities of the truck. You need to know the gross combined weight rating. This is the most the vehicle, including cargo and occupants, plus the trailer can weigh. This information is usually in the owners manual or on a sticker in the door jamb. Looking at an online copy of the owners manual the 4 liter V6 model of the 2013 Toyota Tacoma with 4-wheel drive could have one of several capacities depending...

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch and Air Bag Kit Recommendation for 2016 Ford F-350 with Hitch Prep
  • For your 2016 Ford F-350 with the hitch prep package the B and W Companion part # BWRVK3300 would be a great option. It has been confirmed as a fit and is one of the nicest hitches around. The Firestone Kit part # F2535 is designed to fit your truck and has tech notes that say it is compatible with trucks that have fifth wheel hitch rails or gooseneck rails so it would be a great option that would have no interference. I attached an install video for this kit for you to check out as well.

  • Diameter, Maximum and Minimum Height for Air Bags in Firestone Ride-Rite System # F2071
  • I went out to the warehouse and pulled a Firestone Ride-Rite system # F2071. When fully collapsed and no air in the system it measures 2-3/4 inches not counting the valves on the top. Please note that you should always have at least 5 psi in the springs up to 100 psi. When in its regular state the bags will not expand much beyond how they come in the box. They are 6 inches tall again not counting the valves. And finally, the diameter is 5-3/4 inches. Use these measurements as guides...

But if it happens to be a 2500 or 3500 then you would need to use # F2528. I have linked videos to the right showing typical installations for you. Also, if you do not want to manually fill the air bags every time you can install a Level Command II kit, # F2219, which will allow you to fill/remove...

  • Can Firestone Air Bags be Used with Weight Distribution Hitch when Towing a Trailer
  • I do not recommend using air bags and weight distribution at the same time. If you are experiencing rear end sag on the tow vehicle caused by towing a trailer then the best solution is weight distribution. But not just any weight distribution system. It has to be the proper capacity. To choose a weight distribution system you will need to go by the total tongue weight of the set up. This is calculated by taking the tongue weight of the trailer, when loaded and ready to tow, and adding...

  • How to Reduce Sag on a 2012 Ford F-250 Super Duty with Towing a 5th Wheel Trailer
  • The best way to reduce the sag on your 2012 Ford F-250 when towing your fifth wheel trailer is to add a rear suspension enhancement system. The two most common types of rear suspension enhancement systems are air bag systems and rubber spring systems. The rubber spring systems like the SumoSprings and the Timbren Springs, # TFR250SDG, are typically more economical than an air bag kit like the Firestone Ride-Rite Air Springs, # F2550. The Timbren springs and the Ride-Rite kit that I mentioned...

Most fifth wheel brackets block the frame and it is not recommended to install the Ride-Rite kits on top of fifth wheel brackets. If you have a fifth wheel kit that uses the 4 individual universal L-brackets, then the Ride-Rite kit may...

This will provide 2 upper brackets, two lower brackets, two upper braces and the necessary hardware.
