Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Air Helper Springs Installation - 2016 Ram 2500

Today on our 2016 Ram 2500 we're going to take a look at and also show you how to install the Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Air Helper springs. These are for the rear axle. The part number is AL57289. The really cool thing about the airbag system is that we run independent lines to each airbag. This is going to give us great side-to-side adjustability. I know we always try to make things even, we always try to get it to where our load's nice and level, but it's just not always the case.


Timbren Vehicle Suspension TFR1504E Review

Today we're going to take a look at the Timbren rear suspension enhancement system. Now this is a custom fit part and is designed to fit the 2015 and newer Ford F150's with stock height. Now this is designed to improve your suspension, the handling and safety of your vehicle. It does provide additional support as needed so you always have a nice smooth comfortable ride. Basically it will allow the leaf spring ample movement while cushioning light loads, and it will not affect the empty ride of the vehicle. Now it does become more rigid as more weight is added, so that'll increase the stability, provides great performance for hauling heavy loads, and will help reduce vehicle sag. They do work independently side to side, helps compensate for any off center loads, and it will reduce body roll in swerving and turning corners.


Firestone Sport-Rite Air Helper Springs Installation - 2007 GMC Sierra Classic

Today on our 2007 GMC Sierra 1500, we'll be installing the Firestone Sport-rite Air Helper Springs for the rear axle. This is part number F2320. The benefits of having an airbag system installed on your vehicle is for when you have a heavy load in the bed, you can help level it out. If you're towing a heavy trailer that has a high towing weight, you can help level it out so you don't have that trailer sag going on in your back bumper, and if you have a heavy load that's off to one side of the bed, you can actually fill them individually because we have individual nozzles here, so you can fill the left side airbag independently from the right side airbag. We'll go ahead and demonstrate that right now. I'm going to fill the passenger side up. Now that we have our passenger side filled, we'll fill the driver side.


Firestone Coil-Rite Air Helper Springs Installation - 2010 Nissan Pathfinder

Today, in our 2010 Nissan Pathfinder we're going to be taking a look at, and installing a Firestone Coil-Rite Air Helper Spring for the rear axle, part number F4166. Here's what the air bags look like, once they're installed on the vehicle. As you can see, they fit right inside the coil springs, for a nice tight fit. With those being inside the coil springs like that, when they're aired up, it works really well, because what they do, is when there's a load on it, the coil springs start to compress. It puts pressure on the air bag when you've got that air bag aired up, it will help prevent it from sagging and it will give it some extra support, to help keep your vehicle level. The reason keeping your vehicle level is important is because that's going to help you maintain your ride control, with your steering, that's going to help that be more responsive. It's also going to help your breaking, stay more consistent.


Timbren Vehicle Suspension TFF750 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Timber Front Suspension Hanson System. Now this is a custom fit part, it is designed to fit the 2000-2002 Ford F650 and F750 Trucks.

How this part will improve your suspension, handling, and safety on your vehicle. Provides additional support as needed so you always have a nice, smooth, comfortable ride. Basically, it will allow the least spring-ample movement while cushioning any light loads.

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...

  • Rear Helper Springs for a 2016 Ram 2500HD 4x4 Towing a Travel Trailer
  • We do have some rear helper springs for your 2016 Ram 2500HD 4x4 that do not require adding air. The most popular option for your truck are the Timbren springs # TDR2500D. These springs have an 8,600 pound capacity (but do not increase the capacity of the truck bed) so they will work well to keep the truck level and provide a better ride. I have included a link to our informational article on Timbren springs for you.

  • 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 Products to Reduce Body Roll & Sway on a 2015 Georgetown 270 with a V10 & F-53 Chassis
  • Good news! I can help point you in the right direction about what products will be best for your 2015 Georgetown. We typically recommend installing one suspension/stabilization/sway piece at a time to see how the ride improves before adding more. The best thing to start with is the suspension enhancement. If you need to break this up as well then I would recommend starting with the rear axle then the front axle. Due to the weight of your Georgetown you will want to get the Timbren...

  • 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.

  • I can certainly help you make driving your RV much less exhausting and safer! First the steering. Using a steering stabilizer will help reduce driver fatigue and keep the steering wheel under control better. For your RV built on the Ford F-53 V10 chassis you can use stabilizer # RM-RBK9-RSSA.

  • Recommended Suspension Enhancement And Air Compressor For 2015 Ram 3500 Truck
  • The air suspension enhancement system I recommend for your 2015 Ram 3500 is the Firestone Ride-Rite System, part # F2560. This system requires no drilling for installation and it has a limited lifetime warranty on the air springs. I recommend this system because the air bags and the brackets are built stronger that those on the Air Lift LoadLifter , part # AL88396 system. One of the air compressor system we offer is the Firestone Wireless Air Command F3, part # F2581. This system lets...

  • 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...

  • Timbren Suspension Enhancement Recommendation for 2016 Ford F-250 Towing Fifth Wheel
  • I would recommend the Timbren part # TFR250SDG which has the 8,600 lb capacity over the part # TFRTT350F as this kit is designed for severe duty vehicles like tow trucks. The ride quality would be rather harsh. I attached an install video for the # TFR250SDG for you to check out as well. This kit will provide you the support you need without being overly harsh.

This system is designed to enhance the suspension when there is a load applied, like carrying a snow plow or front mounted accessory. This kit works with the vehicle at the stock ride height. If you would like a system that will allow you to adjust the front ride height of the vehicle when you...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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, #...

  • 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.
