With a Roadmaster Active Suspension (RAS) kit
installed, you will be amazed
at the improvements when cornering and with overall
handling. Body roll will be greatly reduced and the
vehicle will become considerably more stable and safer,
with or without a load. As incredible as it sounds, your
pickup will be transformed to handle more like that of a
The Roadmaster Active Suspension leaf spring
suspension upgrade will not only improve vehicle handling
and load carrying but will also provide other advantages
unique to RAS. These additional advantages can not be
provided by any other after-market suspension product.
RAS will eliminate axle wrap and wheel hop, eliminate
bottoming out, improve hard braking and accelerating,
improve towing and load carrying, improve stability in
cross winds and prevent a hard stiff ride, with or without a
Here’s the how and why of it:
In 1992 Roadmaster Active Suspension, set about designing a
unique product with the sole purpose of improving the
handling and load carrying ability of pickup trucks, vans
and SUV’s with factory fitted rear leaf spring suspension.
After 4 years of extensive in-house and on-road test
development the company perfected the Roadmaster
Active Suspension system. The patent was issued in
1996 and that same year this unique aftermarket product
was launched in the USA and Canada.
Roadmaster Active Suspension consists of two
powerful, variable rated, coil tension springs that once
installed convert passive leaf spring suspension into
active suspension. These powerful ‘load absorber’ coils
support and assist the rear leaf springs by holding them
in their original bowed designed working position for
On cornering RAS reduces body roll by supporting
the leaf spring that is taking the increased load. When
downward strain from load or vehicle weight shift is
applied to the leaf springs, the stabilizing action of the
RAS system comes into action immediately absorbing
the force of the load. Being variable rated, the greater the
strain the more counter assistance force is applied. By not
allowing the leaf springs to flatten out, the vehicle corners
more level with greater contact of all four tires to the road.
This provides improved traction which translates to better
control and handling.
RAS has the ability to store, dissipate, and
introduce energy to the system. Being 100% mechanical
its action is immediate unlike hydraulics or air which take
time to react. This immediate action is also variable,
working in exact counter proportion to the force applied,
hence the term active.
Roadmaster Active Suspension is designed to
eliminate shock on the suspension itself thus extending
the life of the leaf springs, bushings, shock absorbers,
shackles, and will even extend tire life by a minimum of
15%. RAS is so effective at controlling load and dissipating
load force energy it will reduce fuel costs of vehicles that
consistently haul large loads.
Take your pickup to the next level for maximum enjoyment... all the benefits of a truck plus
awesome handling as well. We are so convinced that you will be 100% satisfied with a Roadmaster Active Suspension installed on your vehicle, that we offer a 30 day money back guarantee.
