Bolt-on, two-leaf Helper Springs available for 2017-2018 two and four-wheel drive models deliver up to 2,500 pounds of load capacity in addition to greatly enhanced vehicle control and driver safety

Visalia, Calif. (September, 2018) – Hellwig Products, an industry leading manufacturer of towing, hauling and performance suspension products, has released new Pro-Series Helper Springs for the 2017-2018 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 2500 and 3500 vans including both two and four-wheel drive applications. The Pro-Series Helper Springs allow Sprinter owners to better tow and haul heavy loads with improved safety, stability and comfort by maintaining a level ride height, improving overall drive control.

One of the most versatile and popular cargo vans on the road today, the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter has a multitude of engine and chassis options and has a maximum payload of between 6,521 and 7,500 pounds. While these vans may be rated for relatively heavy loads from the factory, the weight of a heavy trailer or uneven cargo loads will still cause these vehicles to sag in the rear, negatively affecting driving dynamics.  With the addition of the Hellwig Pro-Series helper springs, a more favorable balance of weight to the front tires is restored, resulting in better handling, braking and safety of the vehicle.

The Pro-Series Helper Springs for the 2017-2018 Sprinter (P/N 61614) feature a two-leaf stack rated for up to 2,500 pounds of additional level load carrying capacity. These powder-coated, bolt-on helper springs improve tow/haul performance by keeping the vehicle level even as loads approach the manufacturer’s GVWR. The progressive rate of the Pro-Series Helper Spring only activates when a load is present, allowing the vehicle to drive like stock when not towing or hauling cargo. The user can also further dial-in the load support for an uneven side load using the adjustable U-bolts. These helper springs fit the 2017-2018 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter cutaway chassis, cargo van and passenger van and only apply to the multi-leaf versions of the Sprinter.

The Hellwig 2017-2018 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Pro-Series Helper Springs can be installed easily with simple hand tools, are made in the USA and come with a lifetime warranty on all steel parts. For more information on Hellwig’s Sprinter Van Helper Springs visit
