Suspension Upgrades

Jacques Towbar Services works with MAD Suspension Systems (Dutch engineering company) and Westfalia Automotive Ltd, leading EU manufacturers of technically advanced, high quality suspension systems. Power suspension systems developed specifically for your vehicle make and model and as a perfect complement to your towing needs. Power springs are guaranteed to overcome problems and stresses associated with motorhomes when towing extra loads.



Helper Springs

MAD helper springs are progressively wound steel coil springs fitted in conjunction with the original suspension. So, as the load imposed on the suspension increases, the springs strengthens and the load-bearing capacity is increased, reducing the amount of “sag,” and improving the ride height, road handling and the safety of the towing vehicle.


Auxillary Springs

Another option is to fit MAD auxiliary springs specially designed to cope with heavy loads without tilting problems and loss of stability and ensuring good road handling capability, driving comfort in all road conditions and towing loads and maximum safety. Auxiliary springs are especially useful in off the road, bumpy, conditions thereby maximising the usability of your motorhome no matter what type of journey or destination your destination might be.


Air Suspension

MAD interactive suspensions offer the ultimate load bearing capability and suspension control. No steel springs, only two air bellows installed with existing springs ensure that the car can be adjusted to meet the all conceivable driving conditions – hard or soft spring action, high or low car. MAD Level Adjustment makes it happen at the turn of a switch giving increased comfort through optimum auxiliary air suspension. Inflation carried out either from a garage tyre-inflator or portable compressor via a fill-valve. Alternatively, an on-board compressor can be fitted and operated from the driver’s seat to increase or decrease pressure to obtain the most comfortable and best ride height dependant on the load in the vehicle.

Load adjustments can be operated easily from the dashboard while driving or by using a petrol station air hose facility.
