Today on this 2010 Ford F-350 Super Duty, we are going to install part number SSA10 from SuperSprings. The first thing you want to do is go ahead and get the vehicle up in the air a little bit. You do not have to take off the wheel, but it makes things a lot easier to fit inside there. So, we have our wheel off. We have the suspension unloaded. And basically what is going to happen is we are going to set a block that goes on top of the factory overload spring right here. Alright, the first thing we want to do is go ahead and install this block that fits right here. Now this will fit a couple of different vehicles. You will need to flip it around and find out which is the best fit. Once you have that just like that, you can take the SuperSpring and lay it on top. And you will have to maneuver it around some cables, especially the parking brake cables, and make sure you do not hit anything else in the way. We also took off the bolts that go through the bottom, just to make it easier to thread everything inside because the unit does come preassembled. 1:07
Alright, you can see how the parking brake cable is pretty close to the spring. We are actually going to scoot it forward so it comes up behind it and just enough and it gives you some room to take this bracket and just kind of bend it up so it takes the cable and pulls it a little bit farther away. Alright, once you have it in place, go ahead and make sure you can let these hangers go down on each side of the spring. It is ok for them to drag, but it should not be tight. You still may have to move it back and forth to give it a good fit. Alright, you want to make sure you do this on both sides of the spring. Make sure that the shackle links. They can drag on the side of the spring but not be really tight. Do that on both ends of the spring. And then, once you are happy with that, go ahead and start installing the bolts. Alright, there is a metal bushing and a plastic bushing and they fit in just like this. And we will run our bolt in. And it just gets the nut on the end. Go ahead and repeat the same process back on the other side of the spring. 2:03
Once you have all the hardware loosely installed, it might be a good idea to go ahead and put the wheels back on, lower it and make sure nothing interferes. The spring should have a slight tension on it. If that is all good, then go ahead and tighten down all of the bolts. Now, we have already done the other side. So we know exactly where to set everything so we can go ahead and just tighten up the bolts. You want to tighten it up until you hit the metal bushing on the inside. And that will be tight enough. Alright, now just make sure it is under tension. Just make sure you cannot move the shackles or the rollers on both sides. When you have that, then you are ready to go. Alright, with that that will finish our install of part number SSA10 from SuperSprings.
Today on our 2011 Ford Super Duty well be installing the firestone level command two dual gauge with heavy duty compressor, part number F2219 to an already existing firestone airbag suspension system, part number F2535. To begin our install well first go ahead and take the compressor and find a suitable mounting location. Because theres no room underneath the hood to install a compressor, we will go underneath the vehicle and on the inside of the frame, near the engine compartment is a good mounting location. Using the compressor as a template and our 3/16 drill bit we will go ahead and mark the frame. Once weve marked the frame well take the compressor out of the way and drill out or holes. Then using the hardware provider well go through the compressor attachment point, through the frame and secure it on the inside of the frame with an additional flat washer and nylon lock nut.
Today on our 2005 Ford F350 we'll be installing the Firestone Level Command single gauge heavy duty compressor in conjunction with the FirestoneRide Right air-helper springs forthe rear axle. For our compressor part number F2097 and our air helper-springs will be part number F2400. The first step of our process will be to install the airbags. To install the airbags we'll first need to remove the bolt securing the gooseneck for this application. By removing the nut, pulling the bolt back, we can now gain access to the top of the jounce bumper hold-downnut.We'll be removing the manufacturer jounce bumpers because the airbag will sit in this position. Now, with the jounce bumper out of the way, we're ready to go ahead and install the upper bracket. This will also come with a spacer block and get secured with the taper bolt and lock nut. Let's go ahead and put our bracket in place.
Today on our 2004 Ford F250 we'll be installing the Air Lift Load Lifter 5000 air helper springs, part number AL573090. Now today our F250 has a 6 inch lift on it, but the Load Lifter 5000 will still bolt into place, now again because our vehicle has a suspension lift on it we dont need to expand the suspension on the truck, but it is a good idea to go ahead and do that to give you enough clearance to get your air spring in. now today we'll be installing the passenger side. The drivers side installs the exact same way with a few minor additions. On the drivers side you'll want to make sure that you keep the wiring harness out of the way of the air spring and the hardware. Also the kit comes with an emergency brake cable clamp that you'll bolt into place to hold the emergency brake out of the spring.
Today on our 2005 Ford F350 well be installing the Super Springs custom suspension stabilizer and weight control kit, part number SSA22. The system will reinforce the vehicles rear suspension with an extra lead spring that prevents sagging and reduce sway by up to 30%. To install our Super Springs weve already gone ahead and raised the vehicle and removed the rear wheels. This will allow us easier access to the manufacturers lead springs. Next well remove the nylon lock nut and nylon bushing from the shackle bolt on the Super Spring. Now with the shackle bolts removed, well sit that aside and move to the manufacturers lead spring pack.
Today, on this 2008 Ford F-350 were going to install part number sss-1. This is SuperSprings SuperSway-Stops, an anti-sway system for air spring suspension. The intent of this part is that it reduces body roll and decreases the sway by replacing the factory bump stops with the SuperSway-Stops. This is very easy to install. Basically, all we have to do is remove the factory bump stops. Of course, in this case we just sprayed them down with some lubricant.
Today on this 2012 Ford S250 we're going to install part number TFR250SDG Timbren. Our first step is to go ahead and remove the original jump start. You can bolt it from the top using 15mm ratchet range. Now it's unbolted we'll go ahead and get our Timbren spring and some preassembling. We'll take the spring and the bracket and we'll bolt them together using the longer of the two bolts with lock washer. Now there's a flat washer already located inside the sprint.
