Air Lift Lock-N-Lift Spacers for Lifted Vehicles Review

Today we're going to take a look at the Air Lift Lock-N-Lift spacers for lifted vehicles, 2-inch, part number AL52130. These are also available in a 4-inch lift, part number AL52140, and a 6-inch lift, part number AL52150. Now here's what it's going to look like once it's installed. You can see we've taken up 2 inches of space between our bracket and our air bag, accounting for the amount of extra lift that they have added to this vehicle. With these installed, it's going to keep your air bag at the proper right height at all times. Now let's go ahead and show you how to install them. Now here's what your kit's going to consist of. It's going to come with 4 of these polymer pucks that are going to snap together. Take them and you just twitch them and they'll lock.


Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs Installation - 2010 Chevrolet Silverado

Today, on our 2010 Chevrolet Silverado, we're going to take a look at and also show you how to install the Firestone Ride Rider Helper Strings. These are double-convoluted for the rear axle, part number is F2430. Now, before we begin the installation, we want to get a few measurements. These are going to act as kind of a control, so we know what measurements we want to get back to once our bags are installed. Looks like here in the rear, it's about 38 1/4 inches. Here in the front, about 36 3/4.


Timbren Vehicle Suspension TFRTR250 Review

Today we are going to take a look at the Timbren Suspension Enhancement System for a rear axle. This has a 5,600-pound weight capacity. This is a custom fit part. It is designed to fit the 2015 and newer Ford Transit T150 and T250 cargo vans. On a custom fit part I always like to recommend for you to go our website, use our fit guide, put in your year and model vehicle and it'll show you if this will work for your application. This kit will improve the suspension, the handling and safety of your vehicle.


Air Lift Load Controller I Compressor System Installation - 2004 Chevrolet Silverado

Today on our 2004 Chevrolet Silverado 2500, we're going to be taking a look at and installing the Air Lift Load Controller I Compressor System for Air Helper Springs. It has a duel path system. Part number AL25651. This is what it looks like once it's installed on the vehicle. As you can see, you've got the compressor here, the solenoids and what these solenoids do is allow you to operate and inflate one airbag at a time. The passenger or the driver side airbag. It also allows you to do that wit the switch that's on the controller up in the cab, which we'll show you in a minute.


Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement Installation - 2016 Ford Explorer

Today on our 2016 Ford Explorer we'll be installing the inaudible 00:00:04 rear suspension enhancement system part number TFRFLX. Here we have a cargo carrier on the back with no weight on it right now and a completely factory suspension. Let's get a measurement and see how far our cargo carrier is from the ground. We're sitting about 18 and a quarter inches from the front edge of our cargo carrier to the ground right here. Now, for an additional measurement besides having the cargo carrier let's measure from the center line of the wheel up to the wheel well with no weight on it, we're 33 inches thereabout. Let's put the weight on it and see how it changes. All right, now we have about 250 pounds on the back of our cargo carrier.


Firestone Level Command II Installation - 2015 Ford F-150

Today on our 2015 Ford F-150 we'll be installing the Firestone Air Command One Compressor System, part number F2158. This is designed to work in conjunction with airbag systems. In our case we're using Firestone Ride Rite Air Helper Springs, part number F2582 that has previously been installed on our F-150. So, with our Firestone One Air Compressor System installed, as you can see we've got a nice display here with an easy to use switch. Just toggle up to operate the compressor, holding it down to reach your desired arable setting. If you want let air our, toggle down on the switch and it will release the air. As you can see, our gauge goes 150psi.


Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement System Installation - 2005 Chrysler Town and Country

Today on our 2005 Chrysler Town and Country we're going to be taking a look at and installing the Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement System, part number TDVR05096. This is what the Timbren Suspension Enhancement looks like once it's installed on your vehicle. What this one will do by replacing the factory bump stop it actually holds tension, so as you load the vehicle it will help support that, and help prevent your vehicle from squatting as much as it would normally with the factory bump stop in place. This does get stiffer the more weight is put on it, but you will also want to refer to your vehicle's owner's manual to see what the weight capacity is that your vehicle can handle. You'll want to be sure not to exceed that, but these do feature a capacity of 2,000 pounds, that they will help assist the suspension with. They're made of a very durable rubber design, that features a bolt that goes up though the center of it to bolt it into place. Your kit does come with four bolts, but you'll need to go with whichever bolt and lock washer is the correct size for your application. One thing that sets these apart from other suspension enhancements on the market is that these, when there's no load on the vehicle they're not going to change the ride quality at all.


SuperSprings Vehicle Suspension SSR-611-40 Review

Today we're going to take a look at the SumoSprings Solo Custom Helper Springs, by SuperSprings. This is for the rear axle. It has a 500 lb weight capacity. Now, this is a custom fit part. It is designed to fit the 2005 and newer Toyota Tacoma vehicles. On a custom fit part, I always like to recommend, go to our website, use our fit guide, put in your year and model vehicle, and it will show you if this will work for your application.

Vehicle Suspension Questions and Answers

  • Recommended Air Pressure of Firestone Ride Rite Air Springs # F2071 on Dodge Ram 3500 Dually
  • Other than saying that the air bags need to be kept between 5 and 100 psi, Firestone does not offer much in the way of specifics. The instructions mention that as a general rule of thumb, 1 psi will support approximately 40 lbs of load. Your best bet is to use enough pressure to level the vehicle, and then adjust plus or minus according to your personal preference. You can do this with the 5th wheel in place, and for the unloaded scenario. Keep in mind that using an air bag suspension...

  • How To Tell What Size Firestone Lift Spacers Are Needed On A Truck With A 6 Inch Lift Kit
  • To determine what size lift spacer to use on your vehicle with Firestone Ride-Rite Air Springs, measure the distance between the upper and lower brackets of your air helper spring kit, and whether the kit mounts on the leaf spring or the axle. The spacer needs to be the same length as the amount of lift applied to the axle on which the air helper spring is installed. The axle mount kit would have the lower bracket mounted to the axle. The leaf mount kit would have the lower bracket mounted...

  • Towing Capacity of a 2013 Toyota Tacoma 4.0 Double Cab 4x4 with Factory Tow Package
  • I can help you out, no problem. What you are going to want to look at is the towing capacities of the truck. You need to know the gross combined weight rating. This is the most the vehicle, including cargo and occupants, plus the trailer can weigh. This information is usually in the owners manual or on a sticker in the door jamb. Looking at an online copy of the owners manual the 4 liter V6 model of the 2013 Toyota Tacoma with 4-wheel drive could have one of several capacities depending...

  • Firestone Air Bag Suspension Enhancement for a 2014 Chevy Silverado LTZ Z71
  • The axle your version of the 2014 Chevy Silverado would be the Z71 rear axle and that should also be a 4 wheel drive model. The proper kit for a 1500 would be # F2430 that you have referenced. But if it happens to be a 2500 or 3500 then you would need to use # F2528. I have linked videos to the right showing typical installations for you. Also, if you do not want to manually fill the air bags every time you can install a Level Command II kit, # F2219, which will allow you to fill/remove...

  • Best Way to Prevent Sagging Suspension When Towing a Trailer
  • For sag from towing a trailer the best recommendation I can make is actually a weight distribution system. Suspension enhancement will help level your truck while towing. But the advantage to a weight distribution system is that it levels the vehicle by distributing the tongue weight of the trailer up to the front axle of the vehicle as well. This will help greatly with handling and braking, especially in an emergency situation. The best way to pick out a weight distribution system is...

  • How to Remove the Air Hose for the Firestone Sport-Rite Air Helper Springs
  • I made a short video for you showing you how to remove the air hose from the air line fittings on your Sport-Rite air helper springs. The main thing to remember is to have the collar on the fitting pushed down when removing the air hose. It may take a little elbow grease to remove, but it should release if the collar is held down.

  • Timbren or SumoSprings Recommendation for a 2015 Chevy Silverado 2500
  • Because the Timbrens like part # TGMRCK25D that you referenced have a reputation as having kind of a harsh unloaded ride quality I would recommend the SumoSprings part # SSR-207-47 since you will get the same support without as harsh of a ride when the vehicle is unloaded. I attached an FAQ on Timbrens for you to check out as well.

  • Suspension Enhancement, 5th Wheel and Gooseneck Hitches for a 2011 Ford F-250 Diesel Long Bed 2WD
  • Yes, your 2011 Ford F-250 does certainly have the prep package installed. If the gooseneck ball was not included then you will need ball kit # RP30137 or # C60601. For a 5th wheel hitch you can use any of the following hitches that fit directly into the 4 pucks: Reese Elite Series hitch # RP30142 (18K), # RP30143 (25K) B&W Companion hitch # BWRVK3300 Or any of these Curt hitches: # C16530-16017, # C16520-16017, # C16515-16017, or # C16545-16017 For suspension enhancement I actually...

  • Location to Install Air Lift # AL25870 Wireless ONE Compressor System on 2009 Chevy Silverado
  • According to my Air Lift representative, you CAN install the compressor on that battery tray in the engine compartment if you wish, but please know that if you do so the high-heat environment of the engine compartment will significantly shorten the life of the compressor. Installing the compressor in that location will also negate the warranty coverage. My Air Lift rep has the same exact compressor kit on his truck, and he installed his compressor on the inboard side of the truck frame...

But you will need to follow the alternate instructions on the bottom of page 7 in the linked instructions. The air bags will work well when towing the 5th wheel trailer or carrying heavy loads in the bed and if you add a remote compressor system it will be easy to dial in the ride quality and support that best fits your needs.

  • How to Reduce Sag on a 2012 Ford F-250 Super Duty with Towing a 5th Wheel Trailer
  • The best way to reduce the sag on your 2012 Ford F-250 when towing your fifth wheel trailer is to add a rear suspension enhancement system. The two most common types of rear suspension enhancement systems are air bag systems and rubber spring systems. The rubber spring systems like the SumoSprings and the Timbren Springs, # TFR250SDG, are typically more economical than an air bag kit like the Firestone Ride-Rite Air Springs, # F2550. The Timbren springs and the Ride-Rite kit that I mentioned...

  • Recommended Air Bags and Compressor Kit for 2011 Ford F-250 Super Duty 6.7 Diesel Towing 5th Wheel
  • Adding a set of rear axle air bags and an in-cab compressor/controller to your F-250 diesel will give you the convenience of easy adjustment to your rear suspension when towing your 5th wheel. For your 2011 F-250 diesel I recommend the Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Spring Kit # F2535 which is intended for both 2WD and 4WD diesels. I linked an installation video for this kit showing it in a 2012 F-250. Since your application is towing (not cargo) you can use a less-costly single-path...

  • Suspension Enhancement Product Recommendation for 2015 Silverado 1500 Towing 8500 lb Travel Trailer
  • The SuperSprings product will somewhat help with the bouncing you're experiencing, but I'd recommend that system more for preventing rear end sag and sway. For what you're experiencing, I'd recommend either an air bag system or a Aeon Spring set up that would replace the factory bump stop on your truck. Either type of system has its advantages and disadvantages. An air bag system allows you the ability of infinite adjustment by adding or removing air from the system. However, you'll...

  • Will the Air Lift Compressor Kit # AL25592 Work with the Firestone Ride-Rite Air Springs # F2245
  • You can certainly use the Air Lift Compressor Kit, # AL25592, with the Firestone Ride-Rite Air Springs, # F2245. I spoke with my contacts at Air Lift and Firestone to confirm that it would work. The Air Lift compressor kit and the Ride-Rite both use 1/4 inch air lines and fittings so they are compatible with each other. I have attached the installation instructions for the Air Lift compressor kit for you to check out. I would also recommend picking up the Air Lift Air Hose Cutter, #...

  • Best Suspension Helper Springs for a 2014 Chevy Silverado 1500 4x4 with 2 Inch Block Lift
  • If the blocks on your 2014 Chevy Silverado 1500 lift just the body and not the suspension then you can still use Firestone air bags # F2430. If it is a suspension lift then they would not fit properly. The suspension can still travel but depending on how much air pressure is in the bags it will not travel as much. The more air the less travel. What I recommend if the truck has a suspension lift is to use SuperSprings # SSA8MTKT or # SSA5MTKT (for stock leaf spring stacks above the...

  • Comparing the Firestone Ride-Rite Air Springs to the Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 on 2014 Toyota Tundra
  • When it comes to quality, the Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs, # F2445, has a slight edge over the Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Ultimate Air Helper Springs, # AL88299. Both systems will get the job done, but I would go with the Firestone kit if it were my truck. Firestone has been an industry leader for a long time. I have attached an installation video of the Firestone kit on a 2013 Toyota Tundra that you will find helpful. The installation will be the same on your 2014 model. A...

  • What is the Maximum Air Pressure for Air Lift 1,000 Pound Capacity Air Helper Springs
  • According to the instructions which I have linked for you for Air Lift suspension enhancement # AL60769, the maximum air pressure is 35 psi and the minimum is 5 psi. Over-inflation and under-inflation can damage the air bags so you will always want to stay within the 5 to 35 psi range.

  • I do have a rear suspension enhancement option for your 2013 Ford F-150, however, the Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs, # F2525, are not compatible with most fifth wheel frame brackets that mount to the outboard side of the vehicles frame rail. Most fifth wheel brackets block the frame and it is not recommended to install the Ride-Rite kits on top of fifth wheel brackets. If you have a fifth wheel kit that uses the 4 individual universal L-brackets, then the Ride-Rite kit may...
