Going to have one hole to drill. It's going to be through where jounce bumper originally mounted to allow our air line to come out. The bag is going to squeeze in between your springs, and you'll just run your lines to the back of your vehicle. You'll have separate airing ports so if you have a vehicle sling to one side with your load on it, you can have it up on that one side and level your vehicle out, therefore improving your handling and your ride.

With the internal jounce bumper, it's going to help improve your ride quality. When you do have your vehicle riding level, you're not going to aim your headlights into the eyes of the oncoming traffic. These are going to help level your load up to 5000 pounds.

With many of our customers have said that these do work well with this wheel hitches, just have to use the original hardware that came with your fifth wheel hitch, the bolt through the center there, to mount your air bags.

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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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....

  • For a 2014 Ram 2500 the only Timbren system that is listed is # TDR2500D. The other one you mentioned, # TDRTT3500D, is designed for 3500 models and is rated much higher that you would need at 12,000 pounds. System # TDR2500D is rated for 8,600 pounds but considering that the pin weight of the trailer will be much lower than this that 8,600 pounds is more than enough. The springs install on the bottoms of the truck frame rails so they will not interfere with the 5th wheel prep package...

There is not much of a difference between the Ride-Rite Kits, # F2550, that I recommended and # F2484 that you referenced, but the brackets that are included with the # F2550 springs are compatible with fifth wheel and gooseneck trailer hitches. It may not seem that important now if you do not have a gooseneck or fifth wheel hitch, but the # F2550 air springs will...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Front and Rear Sway Bar Recommendation for a 2015 GeorgetownXL 377 on a 2014 Ford F53
  • We get similar questions pretty frequently and we have found that first going with a rear sway bar upgrade will give you the best improvement and then next you would want to upgrade the front sway bar for further improvement. So for a rear sway bar you would want the part # 1139-144 since your coach is 37 feet long. If you still need more then you would want the front part # RM-1139-140 as well.

  • 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...

For a rear sway bar you would want the part # RM-1139-143, front sway bar part # RM-1139-140, steering stabilizer part # RM-RBK9-RSSA and then for a rear track bar part # TT2400. After you install...

This kit is specified for Ram 2500s up through the 2013 model year. According to my contact at Timbren the correct kit for your 2500 Laramie is their new kit # TDR2500D. If your application is for a constant load (a camper or welder in the truck at all times) then you could use the # TDRTT3500D.

  • 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...

You'll need either the # F2375 6 inch or # F2371 4 inch spacer kit, depending on the amount you're truck has been lifted.

  • Suspension Enhancement Recommendation for a 2011 Dodge Ram 1500 Towing a Gooseneck Trailer

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.

  • Choosing SuperSprings Spring Kit or Weight Distribution for 2013 Ford F-150 Towing 30-ft Camper
  • Leaf spring kits like the SuperSprings Custom Suspension Stabilizer and Sway-Control Leaf Spring Kit # SSA5MTKT are best suited to supporting cargo loads in the truck bed. The best solution for the issue of rear-end squat is a weight distribution (WD) system. WD systems don't just stiffen the rear suspension; they actually shift trailer tongue weight (TW) forward onto the truck's front axle. This simultaneously reduces rear-end squat and improves braking and steering performance by keeping...
