Notes

1 Maximum diameter of Firestone shown is at their maximum recommended pressure.
However as pressure increases, so does the diameter. Slam Specialties sizes remain
constant at any pressure.

2 Slam Specialties AirSprings are built to be size and bolt pattern compatible with Firestone.
If you are currently using Firestone, the replacement model is designed to bolt up directly
to your brackets without modification.

4 The Firestone AirSprings have at least one inch of additional stroke above these numbers, but
Firestone does not recommend operation in this range because of possible rubber to plate separation
resulting in failure.
