Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs Installation - 2015 Chevrolet Silverado 2500

Today on this 2015 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 Crew Cab, we're going to install part number F2528. This is a Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs. We're going to begin by showing you how the air springs perform on our truck. We'll get a measurement from the ground to the top of the fender well. The ride height is going to be stock at 42 3/4 inches. Now we'll put our test weight into the truck of about 1500 pounds.


Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs Installation - 2004 Ford F-350 Super Duty

Today on this 2004, Ford F350 Super Duty, we're going to install part number F2550. This is the Firestone Ride Rite Air Helper Springs. A few notes about our install, is that to make things little easier, we'll remove the spare tire to get our of our way. Also, this vehicle had a previous set of air spring installed, and has since been removed. Typically there would be a inaudible 00:00:25 that would have to be removed from the bottom of the frame, but that's already been removed. So, we'll start with basically a bone stock frame. There's a preexisting bushing that's is the frame, so we'll reuse that.


Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement System Installation - 2004 Ford F-150

Rate your transcript OrderClientKevin BrossRef #20636Order #TC0698198260 Today on our 2004 Ford F150, we'll be installing the Firestone Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement System, part #TRF150D. To begin our install, we'll first need to remove the old manufacturer's bump stops. To do that, there is a bolt that goes up through the center of the bump stop, then remove the bump stop and bolt. We'll go ahead and set those aside as they will not be reused. There are 2 options when installing the suspension enhancement system. For maximum capacity at all times, you'll use the ion spring, spacer spring, and top plate. With this setup you'll also be using the longer of the 2 bolts provided with the install kit. For our application, however, we're going to go with the lesser capacity which means we'll remove the center spacer and use the shorter, full threaded bolt. To assemble it, we'll take the bolt, go through the washer on the inside of the ion spring, then through the top of the spring, then we'll go through the top plate, holding it in place. Now we're ready to install it on the vehicle on the manufacturer's clip nut that is secured to the frame.


Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement System Installation - 2004 Ford F-250 Super Duty

Rate your transcript OrderClientKevin BrossRef #20515Order #TC0601312084 Today on 2004 Ford F250, we'll be installing the Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement System, part number TFR250SDE. Just sitting on level ground, we have approximately 40 3/4 inches from the ground to the top of the wheel well. Without the Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement installed, and with about a hundred gallons of water in the bed of the vehicle, it's squats the opening to about 39 1/2 inches from the ground to the top of the wheel well. Now that we have our system installed, now we'll go ahead and put the water tank back in the vehicle and we'll get another measurement. Now it measures 39 and 3/4 inches from the ground to the top of the opening in the wheel well. To begin with, we'll need to go underneath the vehicle and we'll need to remove the original bump stop from each side. We'll be removing the rubber piece by removing the bolt as well as the center spacer from each side. The bolt will come out from above the bracket.


Firestone Dual Air Command Installation - 2005 Chevrolet Silverado

Today on our 2005 Chevy Silverado 2500 HD we'll be installing the Firestone Dual Air Command III Gauge and Heavy Duty Compressor with a one gallon tank, part number F2198. We'll be adding this to our already pre-existing installed Firestone Ride-Right Air Helper Spring System, part number F2250. Now once the compressor has caught up and filled up the tank and system we'll go ahead and check the operation of our new gauge system. By moving the switch up, it will air up the driver's side here. The orange arrow will indicate the pressure for the driver's side airbag. To repeat the same process with the passenger side, you simply push up on the right switch. With our setup, the compressor will work at all times so that we can use the manual valve at the back of the vehicle, however the gauge light will only be illuminated with the ignition on. Next we'll go and show you how to use the new manual valve and supply hose. We'll take the end of our supply hose, put it over the manual valve and lock it down. Then we'll take the chuck end so we can use it to air up things, such as a bike tire. All right.


Air Lift Air Helper Springs Installation - 2008 Chevrolet Silverado

Today in our 2008 Chevy Silverado 2500, we'll be installing the Air Lift Load Lifter 5000 Air Helper Springs, part number AL 57275. Now before we begin our install, we're going to go ahead and measure the ride height of our truck. With no additional weight in the pickup bed, from the ground to the bottom of the wheel well we have 41 inches. Next, we're going to go ahead and add approximately 2500 pounds of weight to the truck bed. With the weight added, it brings the ride height down to 37 3/4 of an inch. Now we'll go ahead and run it through our test course to check handling and ride quality with the excess weight. With the excess weight, we lose steering stability and the ride quality is rough and bumpy. Now let's go ahead, install the Air Lift Load Lifter 5000 Air Helper Springs and with air in our Helper Springs, we'll now go ahead and re-install our 2500 pounds. With the weight re-added in the Air Springs as necessary, it brings it back to our normal ride height of approximately 41 inches. Now we'll go ahead and run it through our test course again.


Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs Installation - 2011 GMC Sierra

Today in this 2011 GMC Sierra Extended Cab were going to install part #F2528 from Firestone. The Firestone ride rite air helper springs. Before we install our air helper springs well take some measurements that will show how the springs help the suspension after theyre installed and weight is added. Well take the measurement from top of the wheel well to the ground first without any weight added. In this case it came out to about 42 inches. Next well add about 2,000 pounds in the bed and take our new measurement.

Vehicle Suspension Questions and Answers

  • Will SumoSprings Helper Springs # CSS-1125R Stop Rear Sag in 2003 Honda Pilot
  • The SumoSprings Custom Helper Springs for Coil Spring Suspension # CSS-1125R that you referenced are indeed a correct fit for the rear coil springs on your 2003 Honda Pilot. These microcellular polyurethane foam springs are intended to help support a suspension that is in good working order for times when it is carrying loads. When the Pilot is not under load, these springs will essentially be inactive; their resistance grows progressively with increased weight load. So, they will help...

  • Air Pressure Range for Firestone Ride-Rite Air Bags
  • I spoke with my contact at Firestone and the air pressure range for the vast majority of all their Ride-Rite air bags is 5 psi to 100 psi. FSN-21-9015 seems to be an obsolete part number and I could not obtain any specific information for these air bags. I have attached an article that you can check out.

  • Weight Distribution for a Heavy Boat Trailer Towed by 2003 Toyota Tundra TRD
  • Since your 2003 Toyota Tundra is not exactly stock I cannot recommend the Air Lift kit # AL59530 for your truck. But weight distribution is the best option for sag caused by towing a trailer anyway so that really doesn't matter. Most boat trailers have a straight pull tongue. You will need to have a pole tongue adapter, # RP58393, and use a Reese SC weight distribution. If the boat trailer frame is aluminum you will need to contact the trailer manufacturer to make sure it is permissible...

  • Can Front Anti-Sway Bar Be Installed on 2015 Georgetown/2014 Ford F53 Chassis w/Steering Stabilizer
  • You can install the front anti-sway bar # RM-1139-140 on your 2015 Georgetown built on the 2014 Ford F-53 chassis. It is meant to replace the factory bar with upgraded parts including the bushings. Since it fits in place the factory bar it will not interfere with the steering stabilizer. The only thing left would be to install suspension enhancement # SSR-180-54-1 which will fit models with a 16k to 22k gross vehicle weight rating. These springs will further reduce sway, rear end sag,...

  • Can Firestone Air Bags be Used with Weight Distribution Hitch when Towing a Trailer
  • I do not recommend using air bags and weight distribution at the same time. If you are experiencing rear end sag on the tow vehicle caused by towing a trailer then the best solution is weight distribution. But not just any weight distribution system. It has to be the proper capacity. 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 ready to tow, and adding...

  • 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...

  • Comparing Firestone and Air Lift Air Bags for a 2001 Ford F-250 4x4 with 5th Wheel Hitch
  • Firestone Ride-Rite kit # F2550 is going to be a higher quality than Air Lift # AL88390 but both are going to get the job done well. Both kits would work for 5th wheel hitches because they mount on the inboard sides of the frame rails. I have included a link to a video showing installation of the Firestone kit for you. To be able to add or remove air from the bags from the comfort of the truck cab I recommend Level Command kit # F2158.

  • Air Helper Springs for Lowered 2013 Ford F150
  • Air Lift does have a Air Helper Spring system that's compatible with your Ford F150, as long as it's not an SVT Raptor model. Their SlamAir kit, part # AL59210 is designed for vehicles that have been lowered between 2 and 6 inches. The Load Lifter 5000 kit you referred to, part # AL88200 isn't compatible with a vehicle that's been lowered. A compressor system is also available, part # AL25655. The system would allow you to adjust the air pressure in your air springs without leaving the...

  • Air Bag Compatibility With 5th Wheel Bracket Kit Installed on 2011 Ford F-250 Diesel
  • The Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Spring Kit you referenced, their part # F2535 for 2WD trucks, installs on the outsides of your F-250's frame rails. This is the same placement as for the 5th wheel brackets in your Reese hitch set-up, part # RP50073-58. Good news, however! My Contact at Firestone confirmed that this kit will work along with installed 5th wheel brackets as of the 2011 model year, so this kit will work fine for you.

  • Is Drilling Required To Install Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs on 2014 Nissan Frontier
  • According my contact at Firestone there is no drilling required to install Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs # F2558, on your 2014 Nissan Frontier. Each Ride-Rite kit includes custom-fit brackets that connect to your axle and frame. The brackets provide the mounting points for the air springs.

  • Warranty Implications of Installing Firestone Helper Springs and Compressor on 2014 Nissan Frontier
  • Purchasers of aftermarket vehicle parts and accessories are protected by the Magnusson-Moss Warranty Act. In a nutshell, the Act states that a vehicle manufacturer cannot deny warranty coverage unless the aftermarket part actually caused the problem in question. If correctly installed, the air helper spring and compressor system won't have any warranty implications.

  • Air Spring System Recommendation for a 2001 Ford F250 4-Wheel Drive
  • For a similar air spring suspension enhancement system as the part # AL88390 that you referenced that will work with fifth wheel hitches installed in your 2001 Ford F250 4WD you would want the Firestone Air System part # F2550. This system has been confirmed to fit with 5th wheel hitches. I attached an install video for this product for you to check out.

  • 2007 Hyundai Santa Fe Still Sags when Towing a Trailer When Using SumoSprings
  • On some vehicles the SumoSprings such as # CSS-1168R for your 2007 Hyundai Santa Fe will overlap. On other vehicles they will not. It the springs are large enough around they will not overlap and that is fine. Regarding the sagging the best solution for sag caused by towing a trailer is weight distribution and not suspension enhancement. Both the tow vehicle itself and its trailer hitch have to be rated for weight distribution in order to use it though. Based on what I could find, your...

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch Compatible Air Helper Springs for 2010 Ford F350
  • According to my contact at Firestone, it looks like their Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs, part # F2550 would fit a 2010 F350, 4x2 or 4x4 models as long as it's NOT a SuperCab V10 model with the 8-foot bed. The # F2550 is compatible with an in-bed fifth wheel or gooseneck hitch. If you're interested in an onboard compressor system to inflate/deflate the springs as needed, I'd recommend the Firestone Level Command w/ Heavy-Duty Compressor, part # F2097.

  • Will Installation of the Air Lift AirCell Custom Helper Springs Affect Ride Quality
  • Unless you hit a massive bump you aren't going to feel the Air Lift AirCell Custom Helper Springs Kit # AL52204 when unloaded. That's the beauty of the system, when your truck is loaded you will have extra support as the suspension rides lower in it's travel, but when unloaded the # AL52204 wouldn't affect anything. Also, not having to mess with air lines, or maintain air pressure in the bags is nice. This product only installs on the frame of your 2003 Dodge Ram 2500. It basically replaces...

  • Converting a Single-Path Air Bag System to Dual-Path to Inflate Each Air Bag Separately
  • You will need to switch the single path gauge on system # AL25690 to a dual-path gauge to be able to control each air bag individually. You can use Firestone kit # F2145. It comes with the gauge, additional hose, fittings, and wiring plus accessories. Use it in place of the existing single-path gauge.

  • Suspension Enhancement Recommendation For 2014 Chevrolet Express Van
  • To provide more support in your 2014 Chevrolet Express Van, I recommend the Timbren Vehicle Suspension, part # TGMRG25C. This will not affect the ride of your Express when empty but will help support the suspension when a load is added. The hollow rubber springs act like shock absorbers, and increase stability, along with extending the life of your suspension. This is a simple installation and replaces the axle bump stops on the frame. This system does not increase the weight carrying...
