Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs Installation - 2013 Ford F-250

Today, on our 2013 Ford Super Duty, we'll be installing the Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs, part number F2535. Here's our truck with no weight in the bed. With our manufacture suspension, our ride height is 41-3/4 inches. We're going to add approximately 2,000 pounds of weight to the pickup bed of our vehicle. You can see, it lowers the ride height to 39 inches. Now once we have our new airbags installed and aired up, we're going to add approximately 2,000 pounds of weight to the pickup bed of our vehicle.

Vehicle Suspension Questions and Answers

  • Will Firestone Air Bags Fit a 2013 Ford F-250 with B&W Gooseneck Trailer Hitch
  • It looks like the B&W Turnover ball gooseneck hitch has brackets that fit the outsides of the frame rails on the 2013 Ford F-250. And Firestone kit # F2535 has brackets that fit the insides. Both brackets can use the same hole. That isn't to say that the parts are made for each other. There could be some modification required if the holes do not match up. Though technically it would work this would void the warranty on the part(s) modified. If you could email me pictures of the problem...

  • Suspension Enhancement for a Travco Motor Home Built on a Dodge M-500 Chassis
  • I learned that the Travco motor homes built on the Dodge M 500 chassis were built between 1968 and 1979. I do have a solution for you but Firestone does not have an air bag kit that will fit this chassis. I then checked with Timbren for those years and they do not have a system either. I then checked AirLift and they do have an option for 1973 to 1982 Dodge M-Series Class A motor homes included the M-300, M-400, and M-500 as well as M-600. As long as your M-500 falls in that 1973...

  • Firestone Ride Rite Air Helper Spring System Recommendation for a 2007 Ford F150 FX4
  • Yes, the Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs # F2350 that you referenced would fit your 2007 Ford F-150 FX4 Supercrew 4x4. If you have the Heavy Duty Payload Package you would also need the Lift Spacers for Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs # F2366.

  • Suspension Enhancement Recommendation For 2014 Ford F-150 With Gooseneck Installed
  • The installation of air springs like Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs, part # F2525, on your 2014 Ford F-150, requires mounting the bracket assembly on the outside of the fame. For that reason, I cannot recommend installing air springs that require a bracket installation like the Firestone system, but I may have a resolution for you. I recommend the Timbren Vehicle Suspension, part # TFR1504D. This system does not interfere with the gooseneck system and uses a bracket that installs...

  • How to Get the Rear Spring off the Spring Perch on a 2010 Kia Sedona
  • A long screw driver or pry bar should do that trick. I had a similar situation with my car and was able to pry the last bit of the spring off the perch by using a pry bar in one hand and a long slot screwdriver in the other. I pried up with the pry bar and then to the side with the screwdriver to help slide it off the perch. Be careful and take your time. To get it back on you will just need to reverse the process. Leverage is your friend, use the pry bar to compress the spring and the...

  • Fit of Sumo Springs # SSR-304-54 For Rear Axle of 2014 Ram ProMaster
  • The Sumo Springs Custom Helper Spring Kit you mentioned, part # SSR-304-54 is indeed a fit for the 2014 Ram Promaster Van. The kit contains two springs for the rear axle.

  • Compatibility of Helper Springs Weight Distribution and 2007 Chevy Avalanche Factory Air Suspension
  • You would not want to use weight distribution and suspension enhancement at the same time. The suspension enhancement can act like a fulcrum and the 2 different systems could end up working against each other. The likely issue is that the weight distribution system is not adequate for the heavier trailers. To choose a weight distribution system you will need to go by the total tongue weight of the set up. This is calculated by taking the tongue weight of the trailer, when loaded and...

  • Suspension Enhancement Options for 2006 Toyota Land Cruiser
  • We do offer a range of suspension enhancement kits for your 2006 Toyota Land Cruiser (if it is 4WD) and all can be seen using the link provided. The available options include rubber jounce springs and also adjustable air springs. Advantages of rubber springs include easier installation, zero maintenance and a normal ride when the vehicle is not carrying a heavy load or towing. Air springs offer adjust-ability to suit uneven loads but take a bit more time to install. The linked articles...

  • Timbren Recommendation for 2014 Ram 1500 Big Horn
  • The Timbren Suspension system part # TDR1500DQ would be the correct kit for your 2014 Ram 1500. The part # TDRTT1500 is for service vehicles only so it would not be the correct system for you. There is a note on the fitguide page that says this, but it's pretty easy to miss so I understand the confusion.

  • What is the Minimum and Maximum Air Pressure for AirLift Air Bag Kit # AL88299
  • No, the minimum air pressure is 5 psi and the maximum is 100 psi. The 40 figure comes into play based off of the instructions which state that generally the system can support 40 pounds per 1 psi of air pressure. I have linked the installation instructions for Air Lift kit # AL88299.

  • Is there a Recommended Pressure for Firestone Air Bags with Unloaded 2013 Toyota Tundra TRD
  • The pressure you put in the air bags in Firestone kit # F2445 depends only on personal preference. With more air in the bags the ride will be stiffer and you might get a slight lift at the rear but the kit is not designed to provide lift. You would need to try different air pressures between 5 psi and 100 psi to find the best setting for you. Adding an on board air compressor, # F2158, will make this process easier. You will be able to add or remove pressure from the cab of the truck.

  • Should Air Suspension Enhancement Be Used With Weight Distribution On 2004 Ford F-150
  • The use of rear suspension enhancement along with a weight distribution kit is not recommended. They tend to work against one another. You said you have the weight distribution hitch on your trailer and it is set just about right. I might recommend making sure everything is set properly including the tongue weight, and the spring bars you have on your weight distribution system are capable of handling the weight you are towing. I have included a link to a helpful article that explains...

  • Will Coil-Rite Airbags Keep 2000 Buick LeSabre Factory Auto Level System from Running All the Time
  • The automatic leveling system on your 2000 Buick LeSabre running frequently when towing a trailer is a common occurrence. Adding suspension enhancement such as # F4105 should help provided the stock suspension is all in good working order. You will want to check the rear coil springs on the vehicle. If there is nothing in the middle of the coil springs then you can use kit # F4105. But if there is a strut or air shock in there you would not be able to use this kit. I do not recommend...

  • How To Raise Ride Height of Fifth Wheel If the Axle Cant Be Flipped
  • Since the axle cannot be flipped, there's not too many other options, I'm afraid. You can have taller spring hangers installed on the 5th wheel, but a 2 inch taller spring hanger won't necessarily translate into a 2 inch gain in height. The Ford bed sides are taller than GM or Ram, and if your truck is lifted at all, it will further compound the problem. If you have enough clearance, you might be able to go up in wheel diameter by 1or 2 inches or so, and combined with taller hangers...

  • Suspension Enhancement for a 2002 GMC Yukon XL
  • Suspension enhancement products such as the SumoSprings # CSS-1168R are designed to be used with a stock suspension that is in good working order. It sounds like the rear suspension on your 2002 GMC Yukon XL is starting to fatigue some, hence the greater than normal squat, and it would be a good idea to inspect the suspension and replace worn parts as needed. At that time it would be up to you to add stronger springs or suspension enhancement. Please note that adding stronger springs...

  • Diameter Of Air Line For Firestone Coil-Rite Air Helper System
  • The air line that is included in the Firestone Coil-Rite Air Helper Kit, part # F4176, is 1/4 inch diameter. If you wish to purchase more air line, we do carry the air line by itself, part # F0937. This is a 22 foot long section of red tubing. The Tee you could use to split one line into two is the Firestone Union Tee, part # F3025-1.

  • Weight Distribution System Recommendation for a 2010 Ford F150 Towing a Boat Trailer
  • Actually for bumper towing situations suspension enhancement is not recommended as it will act as a fulcrum point and unload the front suspension of your tow vehicle. These types of systems are better geared for gooseneck/fifth wheel towing or just hauling a heavy load in the bed of the truck. Instead you would want a weight distribution system. These systems will distribute the weight from tongue weight of your tow vehicle to the front axle. The best way to pick out a weight distribution...

  • Air Spring Recommendation for a 2002 Ford F250 with a 6 inch Lift Kit
  • Since you have a 6 inch lift kit on your 2002 Ford F-250 you would need the Lift Spacers for Firestone Ride Rite Air Springs part # F2374 to go along with the Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs # F2550. This kit is confirmed to work on vehicles that have gooseneck hitches installed so it should work well for you, but since your setup is custom I would recommend you check out the installation instructions I attached and compare them to the hitch you have to see if the mounting hardware...

  • Can Both Springs In Air Helper Springs System Be Inflated From One Valve
  • I checked the enclosed installation instructions for the Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Ultimate Air Helper Springs, part # AL88397. Near the back of the instructions, they have either separate air spring inflation or equal air spring inflation options listed, and both are acceptable. I would opt for the separate inflation option because you could at some point have a load that is uneven and one side would need more support than the other. But using a single inflation valve would make it...

  • Suspension Enhancement for 2008 Chevy HHR Panel
  • We do indeed offer a suspension enhancement option from Timbren, which you can see by clicking the provided link. The Timbren # TGMRHHR would take the place of your factory installed bump stops inside your coil springs. The existing bump stops would be pried out and the new ones being installed, as outlined in the instructions. If the rubber spacers you speak of involve the bump stops, they could perhaps interfere with the installation of the # TGMRHHR springs. The springs stay in the...
