Level Ride has designed our suspension stabilizer bars to meet the needs of the utility industry. Our units are easy to install, require little maintenance, and remain quiet in operation. They are flexible enough to absorb some of the road shock without compromising the stabilizing effect on the vehicle. Our units come in a kit that bolts on, with no welding or cutting required in most cases.
Through the use of resilient bushings, there are no joints to lube and no bearings to wear out.
We design our units for single rear axle vehicles equipped with man-lifting booms, vans, motor homes, campers, wreckers, etc.
Level Ride in no way claims or implies that our stabilizer bars will prevent a vehicle from turning over or becoming unstable to the point of the wheels leaving the ground.
The length of the boom and/or the weight to be lifted, versus the curb weights of the vehicle, sometimes requires the addition of ballast to the vehicle base to maintain a stable condition. Outriggers may also be required on larger vehicles.
While our units have a stabilizing effect on a vehicle while being driven, it is necessary for the vehicle load to be distributed as equally as possible from side to side, in order to keep frame twist to a minimum. Unequally loaded vehicles equipped with any brand of stabilizer bar can damage the vehicle frame and/or axle components.
Be aware: There is always a possibility that under certain conditions, rough terrain, or road conditions, damage may occur.
Our units use the same type of bushings and cups, etc.
However, the number of bushings and cups may vary depending on the unit’s part number.
To determine which bushing kit you need, obtain the kit number of the stabilizer unit that
the truck is equipped with.
