Specific FAQs

If I put an air shock on my vehicle, can I increase my payload? (GVWR information)

No. The maximum carrying capacity is the GVWR (Gross Vehicle Weight Rating) typically listed on the door jamb. This GVWR number, minus the weight of the vehicle, is the amount of additional weight the vehicle is designed to safely carry, stop with, etc. For example a vehicle weighing 4,000 lbs. with a GVWR of 6,000 lbs. can carry 2,000 lbs. of gear, passengers, etc. Putting in an air shock does not increase you GVWR. This is because the vehicle, its component and systems (tires, brake system, bearings, transmission system) are only designed to handle the listed GVWR.
