Is this gonna help me with my ability to handle corners in my ProMaster Van? You should know it is a conversion… Should I be concerned about how the weight is different in this vehicle?
The difference in weight when a vehicle is a conversion can be greater by a significant amount. If you take into account the pieces you need to add to make the conversion work then you begin to realize that the amount of weight added on the vehicle can be significant. The factory-installed suspensions do not deal with this additional weight very well. There are other conversion suspensions which are, honestly, not set up to handle this kind of stress either. You need a robust system which this Glide Ride system is designed to be.
Wait, I don’t have a conversion van. I just have your normal run of the mill plain Jane RAM ProMaster van. Is this still going to help me?
If you are not a conversion van then you probably have less weight. The truth is that, with less weight, it is even a softer ride!
I heard that these are the same suspensions that people or companies in Europe use inside of their ambulances. Is that true?
Yes. These are the very same suspension systems used in ambulances to make sure that they have the most stable rides as possible for obvious reasons. If you want stability to do some finer work necessary like inserting a needle into a specific vein then there is no better suspension than this one for your vehicle yet.
What makes you so special when it comes to this Glide Ride thing? Why should I get it from you rather than other people who have it?
One of the reasons is that we actually stock this item in our warehouse. There are very few who actually do stock this item. The other fact you may want to consider is that we have 12 years of experience installing and working around these suspension systems. You are unlikely to encounter a problem we have not seen before. It is also important to note that there is a high failure rate when it comes to the installation of this item. It helps to have an experienced hand helping you or your installer when trying to install this suspension system.
Ok, well, what makes this suspensions system so unique when compared to other systems?
The suspension system you normally get usually does not provide much cushion at all. You, normally, feel every imperfection in the road. However, the Glide Rite suspension is an airbag based system which means that you are quite literally riding on air. The system makes use of 4-airbags, in fact, and you will find that the system’s ability to absorb the bumps and imperfections in the road are a significant improvement over what you currently have right now.
How many airbags are used in other airbag based suspension applications?
Most manufacturers opt for 2 airbags. However, you get twice the airbags in this system.
Does it actually help for it is just, actually, a gimmick?
It actually increases the effectiveness of the system. They are paired on either side of your rear axle. The fact that there is an increased surface area from this positioning means that the airbag needs less air pressure to do their jobs. The extra airbags spread the stress over a greater area. It gives the system more potential absorbing power and stabilizes your ride even further.
Does it also help my vehicle’s handling?
Yes. It helps your vehicle have greater stability and handling during movements such as turning.
Ok, well, I’m getting this thing. Is there something special I need to do in order to get this free shipping thing? I don’t wanna pay for 300lbs of shipping.
Yes. We recommend that you order the Glide Rite system by itself. If you order another item that is not free shipping then the system will attempt to charge you money for shipping. Also, be advised that we take extra precautions to make sure that you are a real consumer of this product and not a person trying to commit fraud.
