THE AIR COIL SPRING -- A New Factor in Rambler Suspension 580047

THE air suspension offered by Rambler employs a rolling lobe air spring, designed to go inside a coil spring. The combination coil and air springs are utilized on the rear wheels only.
This arrangement enhances the 4-coil spring suspension by using the air spring for leveling and for maintaining essentially the same ride characteristics whether the car is empty or loaded.
The author considers the simplicity of the system to be one of its outstanding features. Reliability and ease of service were goals in the design.
