Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs Installation - 2006 Lincoln Mark LT

Today on our 2006 Lincoln Mark LT we're going to be installing the Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs. These are the double convoluted style, made for the rear axle. The part number is F2350. Here's what the Firestone air springs are going to look like on your passenger side, and here's what they're going to look like on the driver's side. These are to help level out your vehicle when you're carrying those heavy loads, so it's going to evenly dissipate your contact patch over all four tires. Typically, if we put a heavy load in the rear of the truck, the rear end sags and the front end is going to come up a little bit. That's going to reduce the amount of weight on your front tires.


Air Lift LoadLifter Air Helper Springs Installation - 2008 Toyota Tundra

Today on our 2008 Toyota Tundra, we're going to take a look at then install the Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 ULTIMATE Air Springs with the Internal Jounce Bumpers. These are going on the rear axle. The part number is AL88299. Now, before we load some weight in our vehicle, let's get a measurement to see what our factory ride height is. 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.


Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs Installation - 2004 Ford F-250 Super Duty

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.


Air Lift LoadLifter Air Helper Springs Installation - 2011 Chevrolet Silverado

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.

Vehicle Suspension Questions and Answers

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Can Firestone Air Helper Springs be Used with Existing Reese Fifth Wheel Hitch Kit on a 2013 F-250
  • The Timbren Rear Suspension Kit # TFR250SDG is recommended for use with your 2013 Ford F-250, due to the the fact that the Timbren Springs mount in the exact same location as the factory installed jounce springs and would not interfere with the Reese Quick-Install Custom Base Rail and Installation Fifth Wheel kit # RP50073-58. The Firestone Ride Rite Air Helper Springs # F2535 that you mentioned, are possible to use in conjunction with the Reese 5th Wheel Custom Install Bracket # RP50073-58....

  • Weight Distribution for a 5,000 Pound Boat Trailer and 2011 Chevy Avalanche
  • Since the max tow rating of your 2011 Chevy Avalanche is based on using a weight distribution system, all you really need is to get the proper weight distribution system. 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 behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. The tongue weight on boat trailers...

  • Suspension Enhancement Recommendation for a 2011 Dodge Ram 1500 Towing a Gooseneck Trailer
  • For occasional towing with your 2011 Dodge Ram 1500, I would go with the Timbren suspension enhancement system. If you do not have a Quad Cab, use # TDR1500DS. If you do have a Quad Cab, use # TDR1500DQ (instructions linked for reference). The Firestone systems are good when you carrying varying sized loads and have to adjust the ride accordingly. But for occasional towing of the same trailer, the Timbren system would be the way to go.

  • Air Helper Spring Kit Recommendation for a 2015 Ford F250 Super Duty 4x4
  • I have a suspension enhancement very similar to the one you referenced that has been confirmed to fit your 2015 Ford F250 4x4, but the part # F2535 has not been confirmed as a fit yet so I cannot safely say it would work for you. The Air Lift Loadlifter 5000 part # AL88396 would be a great choice for you as it has been confirmed to fit your vehicle. I attached an install video for you to check out as well.

  • Fit of Firestone # F2535 Ride Rite Air Helper Springs on 2015 Ford F350
  • Firestone has not yet determined if their # F2535 Ride Rite Air Helper Spring Kit is a fit for the 2015 Ford F350, although my representative said he was pretty sure it would fit. He mentioned to be sure that the correct bracket is being used on the correct side of the vehicle, as they are not the same.

  • High Capacity Suspension Enhancement for a 2012 Dodge Ram 1500
  • The frame and suspension is different between the 1500 and 2500 series 2012 Dodge Ram so the parts are not interchangeable. But if you want the most capacity for a 1500, take a look at the Timbren springs # TDRTT1500. These guys are rated for 7,000 pounds and would be ideal for beefing up your suspension. The Timbren springs will provide leveling support independently of each other, increase stability and ride quality, and reduce side to side body roll. I have included a link to an...

  • Timbren Suspension Enhancement for a 2013 Dodge Ram 1500 with Rear Coil Springs
  • If your 2013 Dodge Ram 1500 is a crew or quad cab then you can use the Timbren springs # TDR1500DQ. The coil springs at the back are not an issue. I have included a link to a video showing a typical installation of this system. As you can see the truck in the video also has rear coil springs. I have also included a link to the installation instructions for you.

  • Compatibility of Firestone Air Springs # F2558 with Dual Brake Lines on 2014 Nissan Frontier Pro 4X
  • I contacted the technical staff at Firestone about the fit issue between their Air Spring Kit # F2558 and the 2014 Nissan Frontier Pro4X. According to my technical contact at Firestone their Air Spring Kit # F2558 will now work on the Frontier Pro4X. They have modified the lower bracket, which had been the part that interfered with the brake lines, so that it will now work on the Frontier Pro4X. In a separate email I have sent to you the installation instructions for this kit. I also...

  • 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 #...

  • Will Firestone Air Bags Fit a 2012 Ford F-350 with Factory 5th Wheel Prep Package
  • Take a look under your 2012 Ford F-350 to see where the brackets are mounted for the 5th wheel prep package. They should be installed on the upper half of the frame rails on the outsides of the frame. Any suspension kit including # F2535 that does not install in this same area will fit. A B and W hitch must install in areas needed by Firestone kit # F2535 and that is why it is excluded. The Firestone kit installs using some existing holes and mounting location already present on the...

  • 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.

  • Suspension Enhancement for a 2000 Chevy Silverado 2500 Light Duty
  • The heavy duty suspension packages typically include overload springs. This is an additional spring or springs that will be either on top of or on the bottom of the leaf spring stack on a truck. There could also be other components that are different that can cause the truck to ride higher. Since you do not want to worry about a compressor or adding/removing air I recommend an Air Lift brand jounce style spring kit, # AL52202. These are helper springs that do not take air and they are...

  • Recommended Air Helper Spring Options for Lifted 2001 Ford F250
  • I'd recommend the Firestone Ride Rite Air Helper Spring Kit, part # F2484, unless you have a gooseneck or fifth wheel hitch, in which case the # F2550 would be a better choice. You'll need either the # F2375 6 inch or # F2371 4 inch spacer kit, depending on the amount you're truck has been lifted. You might also be interested in an on-board compressor system like part # F2158 for the standard-duty or # F2097 for the heavy duty compressor. A compressor system would allow you to adjust...

  • 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 Union Tee for 1/4 inch Tubing Recommendation for Filling 2 Airbags Evenly With One Valve
  • The diameter hose that is used on the Firestone Coil-Rite Air Helper Springs - Rear Kit, part # F4182, is 1/4 inch. You would need a Firestone Union Tee for 1/4 inch Tubing, part # F3025-1, if you wanted to use a single valve to fill both bags evenly on your 2007 Mitsubishi Outlander. You may also be interested in a Single Inflation Valve, part # F3032-1.

  • Timbren vs. Firestone Ride Rite
  • The Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement System # TFR1504D is designed to engage when a load is put upon your 2013 Ford F-150. The picture shows the basic fundamentals of how the Timbrens work so you can see that when your truck is not loaded, the Timbrens are at full size and when a load is put upon your truck the Timbrens compress. My technical contact at Ride-Rite confirmed that the psi should be set between 5 and 10 which should not alter your ride or raise your truck when not loaded....

  • Air Lift or Helper Spring Recommendation for a 2000 Ford F-250 Super Duty Towing a Camper Trailer
  • The product that will work best for you will depend on how you will be using your truck and why you are looking for a suspension enhancement system. If you are looking to level your truck because you do a lot of hauling with varying load weights and tow the trailer occasionally then the air bags would work well. I would recommend using the Air Lift LoadLifter air springs, # AL57298, for 2 wheel drive or, # AL57390 for 4 wheel drive models of the 2000 F250. I recommend these air bags...

  • 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...
