Basic types of air springs

There are two basic types of air springs used in vehicle suspensions: reversible sleeve and convoluted. Regardless of whether an air spring is a reversible sleeve or convoluted style it will operate on the same principle; when a volume of gas confined within a container is compressed, it produces a reaction forceā€¦

In the case of air springs the gas is air and the container is a sealed fabric-reinforced rubber bellows or sleeve. Similar to a ball inflated with air, the load an air spring will carry depends on its diameter, and therefore the area of the column of air supported, and the pressure of air inside it.
