It looks like we're going to have about 39 and a half inches to the inside edge of our rear fender and we'll have about 36 and five eighths of an inch to the inside edge of our front fender. Now, we're going to load up our water tank. It's got about 250 gallons in it and we've added about a thousand pound water tank to the back of the truck here.

Today on the 2004 Ford F250 Super Duty Crew Cab, we're going to show you part number: #F2550. This is a Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs. All right, now before we start our install, we'll go ahead and get a quick measurement of the height of the truck before we install our air springs. From the ground to the top of the wheel well will be about forty and a quarter inches. We'll go ahead and put some weight in the back of the truck, then we'll go ahead and get a second measurement. And we are down to thirty seven and a half.

Today on our 2011 Chevrolet Silverado 3500, we'll be installing the Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Ultimate Air Helper Springs with Internal Jounce Bumpers, part number Al88338. Now before we install the air bags, we're going to go ahead and take a dry weight measurement with nothing in the pickup from the bottom of the wheel well to the ground. Right at 41-3/4". Now we're going to go ahead and add 2750 pounds to the bed of our pickup. With our weight added, we'll now take a second measurement from the bottom of the wheel well to the ground. From the ground to the bottom of the wheel well, and it's dropped it 40", losing 1-3/4" with our weight added to the rear of the pickup. Now we're going to go ahead and run it through our test course.


Air Lift LoadLifter Air Helper Springs Installation - 2007 Chevrolet Silverado New Body

Today, on our 2007 Chevy Silverado, new body style, we'll be installing the airlift vehicle suspension system, part number AL88275. First, to begin our install, we're going to go ahead and check the ride height of our truck. Here, with the vehicle on flat ground and no weight added, from the ground to the top of our wheel well is 41 1/2 inches. Next, we're going to go ahead and add approximately 2500 pounds to the bed of our truck. We'll double-check our ride height. We're now sitting at 39 inches from the ground to the top of the wheel well. Next, we'll go ahead and run it through our test course.


Air Lift Ride Control Air Helper Springs Installation - 2006 Hummer H3

Today on a 2006 Hummer H3, we'll be installing the air lift ride control air helper springs, part number AL59563. To begin our install we're going to go ahead and raise up the rear axle and remove the rear wheels. While it may not be required, it will make it a lot easier to install our air bags. Now with the wheels out of the way, we'll go ahead and remove the ABS wire fastener that's secured to the side of the frame. Next we'll go ahead and assemble our air bag. Take the top of the air bag and the air fitting that screws in to the top, and thread it in hand tight. Once we have it hand tight we'll take a wrench and tighten it down two more full revolutions. Now with the air fitting tight, we'll take the upper bracket, put it down over the air fitting and use the plastic nut to secure the upper bracket to the top of the air bag.


Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement System Installation - 2013 Ram 1500

Today on this 2013 Ram 1500 crew cab, we're going to show you part number TDR1500DQ. This is the Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement System. This is what the suspension enhancement looks like when it's installed in a truck. Now, with this part number, you get two Aeon Hollow Rubber springs. What this does basically, it replaces the factory bump stop which was originally located in the same spot. What this does is it actually reaches down, closer to the axle and it starts working when you put a load in your truck. Typically, you have an inch of clearance from your axle and the bottom of the rubber spring, so your truck will ride normally before you put a load into it.


Air Lift Air Helper Springs Installation - 2001 GMC Sierra

Today on our 2001 GMC Sierra 2500 HD, we'll be installing the Air Lift Load Lifter 5000 Air Helper Springs, part number AL57275. Now here's what our vehicle looked like with the manufacturer's suspension and no weight added to the rear of the vehicle. We'll go ahead and take a measurement from the bottom of the wheel well down to the ground. As you can see, we're at 41 inches. Next we're going to go ahead and add approximately 2,700 pounds of weight to the rear of the vehicle. Now with our weight added, you can see it's lowered the rider height from 41 inches to 37 1/2. Next we're going to go ahead and run the vehicle through our test course.


Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Air Helper Springs Installation - 2013 Ford F-150

All right today on this 2013 Ford F150 super crew cab we're going to show you part number AL57200, the Air Lift Load Lifter 5000 air helper springs. Now this has a load baring capacity up to 5000 pounds. Whatever you put in your truck that makes it squat, the Load Lifter 5000 will go ahead and bring your truck back up to level. This is what the Air Lift 5000 looks like once installed on the truck. With this part number you get two air bags, one for each side of the axle. It mounts to the axle, basically using large clamps. This does replace the factory jounce stop.


Firestone Coil Rite Air Helper Springs Installation - 2013 Ford Fusion

Today, on this 2013 Ford Fusion, we're going to show you part number F4145, the Firestone Coil-Rite Air Helper Springs. Now, a few details about our airbags, is that it has a load leveling capacity of up to 500 pounds. It has adjustable air pressure from 5 psi, which is about the normal you want to keep it, when there's no load in it, to about 35 psi, when it's fully loaded. As you can see, our air spring fits inside the spring on the suspension, here in the back. There's an air line that goes from the top down, to a built in fitting that's on the inside. That's what it looks like on top. The air line goes directly into here.

  • Air Lift Load Lifter 5000 Recommendation for a 2014 GMC Sierra 1500 Short Bed with 6 inch Lift
  • For the correct Air Lift Load Lifter 5000 kit you would want part # AL57204 and for the correct spacer kit since you have a 6 inch lift you would want the # AL52150. For just the wireless kit without the tank you would want the part # AL72000. This part isn't available without the motor.

  • Which Way Should Air Inlet Face on Air Bags for 2012 Mitsubishi Outlander
  • The orientation of the air bags are going to be different for every vehicle. On some you even have the option to have the inlet at the top or the bottom. We do not have a video showing installation of # F4182 on a 2012 Mitsubishi Outlander but if we did it would be installed according to the instructions.

  • Firestone Ride-Rite Air Bag Helper Springs for a 2014 Ram 3500
  • Firestone # F2560 is what I would go with for your 2014 Ram 3500. Firestone actually makes the air bags for AirLift. Really both systems are comparable but I find the Firestone systems to be superior. Either system can be adapted to work with a lifted vehicle. But if the vehicle is taller because of the additional leaf spring leaf then you should not need spacers. this is because the Firestone system mounts on top of the leaf spring stack. If you are talking about stock overload springs...

  • What is the Height of Timbren Helper Springs for a 2010 Chevy Suburban
  • I spoke with my contact over at Timbren about helper springs # TGMRYS4. The overall height of the whole assembly is 4-3/4 inches. The spring by itself is 3-3/4 inches. I have included a link to a video showing installation of this kit for you.

  • Firestone Air Helper Spring Recommendation for a 2004 GMC Sierra with C-Channel Frame
  • If your 2004 GMC Sierra is a 2500 or 3500 HD the correct kit would be the Firestone Kit part # F2250. This kit is specifically designed to fit the C-channel frame of your truck by attaching to the holes that held the jounce bumper that gets removed for installation. See install video. If you have a light duty 1500 you would instead want the part # F2320.

  • Air Bag Helper Springs for a 2012 Mitsubishi Outlander
  • Correct, the Firestone Coil-Rite system # F4182 would work inside of the coil springs on your 2012 Mitsubishi Outlander without the shocks in the center of the coil springs. Installing the bags inside of the coil springs is easy enough and I don't think you will have any trouble with it. Routing the air lines will probably take just as long. I have included a link to the installation instructions so you can see what is involved.

  • Can Air Suspension Be Installed With Aftermarket Exhaust On 2008 GMC Sierra 2500
  • I called my contact at Air Lift about the LoadLifter 5000 Air Helper Springs, part # AL88275 for your 2008 GMC Sierra 2500. They told me that as long as you have 6 inches clearance between the air bags and your exhaust you should be okay. If you have less than 6 inches then a heat shield is recommended to protect the air bags. You will want to make sure you run the air line away from the exhaust as well. To be able to control the air pressure in the springs from the comfort of your...

  • Solution for Sagging Rear Suspension on a 2011 Nissan Quest While Towing
  • I have a great solution for you, but at this time we don't have air suspension available for your 2011 Nissan Quest. Since it sounds like you are towing a better solution is actually a weight distribution system. A WD system actually takes and distributes the tongue weight of your trailer to the front axle of your tow vehicle which will improve braking and handling. A suspension enhancement setup will help your tow vehicle sit level when towing but it won't help the handling or braking. The...

  • Will Firestone Ride-Rite Rear Axle Air Helper Springs # F2176 Fit 1999 Ford F-350 Diesel Dually
  • The particular Firestone air spring kit you referenced, Ride-Rite Rear Axle Air Helper Spring kit # F2176, is a fit for the cab-and-chassis version but not for the pickup. The rear axle kit that fits your F-350 diesel dually 8-foot pickup is # F2550. This fits both 2WD and 4WD versions. I have linked an installation video and the written instructions. If you want to control the air bags from the comfort of the cab you can add a compressor kit like # F2097 which controls both bags with...

  • Wireless Air Compressor System for Firestone Air Bags on a 2015 Ford F-350 Diesel
  • You have a couple of options for wireless air compressor systems for Ride-Rite air bags. It is going to depend on what you need the air bags for. For average everyday hauling and towing I recommend the Wireless Air Command II # F2540. It features a standard duty compressor and dual paths so you can add or remove air independently from each bag individually. But if you are going to be doing some heavy duty towing and hauling then I recommend going with the Remote Air Command system #...

  • 1999 Dodge Dakota Sport Sags at the Back When Towing a Trailer
  • Helper springs like Timbren # TDDR00 are designed to help keep the truck level when carrying heavy loads in the vehicle. When sag is caused by a trailer the best solution is weight distribution otherwise you are putting extra stress on the trailer. 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 to that the weight of anything loaded...

  • Suspension Enhancement Recommendation for a 2008 Toyota Tacoma
  • Both the Timbren Suspension System part # TTORTUN4 and the SumoSprings part # SSR-610-40 have been confirmed to fit your 2008 Toyota Tacoma, but I would recommend the SumoSpring kit over the Timbren because they tend to provide a smoother unloaded ride quality over the Timbrens. There is a guy here that has had both setups on hit Ram truck and he like the SumoSprings much better. He said he could hardly tell they were installed when the truck was unloaded.

  • Comparing Timbren Helper Springs for a 2015 Chevy Silverado 3500
  • Timbren helper springs # TGMRCK25D and # TGMRTT35D have different designs. The springs for kit # TGMRCK25D are double-convoluted. For optimal balance between softness and toughness, fabricators choose the double-convoluted rubber spring. Taller than the single donuts, these springs are engineered to deliver superior ride quality and significant load capacity. The springs in kit # TGMRTT35D are single-convoluted. When space is limited or extra stability is required, fabricators and engineers...

  • Will Adding Air Helper Springs Make a Difference Even if Level Once Connected to a 2015 F350 Diesel
  • Although your 2015 Ford F-350 is level after raising the leveling jacks, adding Firestone Ride-Rite air helper springs # F2535 will be a nice addition to your truck. The air helper springs will reduce the strain on your rear axle and improve ride quality. The load leveling capacity is 3,200 pounds. Also, air helper springs will help reduce vehicle roll and improve handling and braking. You will also see a benefit if you ever tow or haul anything heavier. I included a good article...

  • Can Air Bags and Rubber Helper Springs Be Installed Together on a 2005 GMC Yukon XL
  • The stock bump stops on your 2005 GMC Yukon XL should be located outside of the coil springs so they would not interfere with the AirLift system you installed. You could add some different rubber springs such as # TGMRYS4 but since you already have the air bags installed you would not need to upgrade the bump stops. If they are in bad shape you could get some replacements either from a GM dealer or inquire at a local auto parts store. Or if you want bigger ones you could install the...

  • Recommended Timbren Suspension For 2012 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Motorhome
  • The Timbren Vehicle Suspension, part # TMBRSP35A, is the correct suspension enhancement system for your 2012 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter motorhome. This system helps reduce body roll and increases stability, as well as reducing sag at the rear of your Sprinter. The # TMBRSP35B is designed to be used on Van or Cab and Chassis models, and is not a fit for your Class B motorhome. If you need help with the front of your Sprinter I recommend part # TMBFSP35.

  • Suspension Enhancement Recommendation for 2008 Ford F-250 Towing 2009 Keystone Toy Hauler
  • The biggest advantage to using an air bag system with the internal Jounce Bumpers, like the Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Ultimate, # AL88398, is that you get the best of both worlds. The air bags offer the variable load carrying capability and reduce the strain on the rear suspension of your F-250. The internal jounce springs help to improve ride comfort and also work as a fail-safe if the air springs lose pressure. An on-board compressor system, part # AL25592 is available that would allow...

For the convenience of being able to adjust the air pressure in the springs with a touch of a switch, you might be interested in the Level Command compressor kit, part # F2158. The Firestone # F2264 will fit Dodge Ram models up to the 2001 model year only, it won't fit your truck. I've linked you to some installation videos...

  • Gooseneck and Suspension Enhancement Recommendation for a 2014 Ford F-150
  • It really depends on the air bag system you go with and the gooseneck hitch you choose. A lot of the time the mounting brackets for both systems will occupy the same area of the trailer frame so there will be interference. Looking at the air bag systems for your 2014 Ford F-150 like the part # F2525 it would seem pretty hard to fit a hitch in that area. A better solution would be a Timbren system # TFR1504D that will give you the same support as an air bag kit and then a gooseneck hitch...
