Find out how our springs could save your suspension.

Helper springs for towing caravans

When taking your caravan on holiday, you want to take everything you need. A caravan, and all the gear, adds extra weight to your vehicle which may affect your suspension.  

MAD suspension helper spring kits or semi air conversions from Ekollon help with suspension travel to benefit your vehicle in many ways:

Auxiliary Springs for your Suspension

When you set off for a holiday in your caravan, you may make all the usual checks; petrol, tyre pressure and screen wash, but what about the suspension? Overloading can damage suspension and make your journeys less safe.

MAD’s auxiliary springs help to take the weight off, making your journeys safer, improving your driving comfort, and helping your car tow more level.

So, how does it work?

How MAD helper springs work

Towing caravans add additional weight to your vehicle which may reduce grip and make travelling less safe. 

An auxiliary spring is an extra spring that you can place next to or in the springs of your vehicle. The auxiliary springs from MAD help the existing suspension to bear additional weight. This means your vehicle will be optimised to handle heavier loads, making towing safer.

Auxiliary Springs are Affordable

Auxiliary springs are relatively inexpensive compared to other heavy load solutions. It helps that they are also quick and easy to assemble.

How MAD air helper springs work

Air helper spring kits are also known as semi-air conversions, air assisters and air bags.

There are two basic types of air bags; red and black.

RED air bags sit inside the OE coil spring. They are usually fitted to cars, or vans and pickups on coil springs. They are inflated by a compressor to suit the load being carried; you can use your own or make use of one at a fuel station.

BLACK air bags sit between the axle and chassis rail. They are fitted to vans and pickups with leaf springs, and can be supplied as:
