It is designed to fit the 2005, and newer, Ford F250, F350, F450, and F550 trucks, the Super Duty, and the cab and chassis models. On a custom fit part, I always like to recommend go to our website. Use our Fit Guide, put in your year and model vehicle, and it will show you if these parts will work on your application. These springs are a microcellular polyurethane spring which will upgrade your vehicle's front suspension. These will progressively adjust according to your cargo, so the more you load onto your truck, the stiffer they become.

SuperSprings Vehicle Suspension SSR-205-47 Review

Today, we're going to take a look at the SumoSpring Solo Custom Helper Springs for the rear axle. Now, this is a custom fit part. It is designed to fit the 1996 and newer Chevrolet Express and GMC Savannah 2500 and 3500 vans. Now on a custom fit part, I always like to recommend to go to our website, use our fit guide, put in your year and model vehicle, and it'll show you if this will work for your application. These helper springs will upgrade your vehicle's rear suspension for improved driver control and comfort, helps keep your vehicle level when you're towing or hauling a heavy load, and it also helps absorb any bumps or shocks and minimize sway. It is a progressive load control, which means the springs will compress according to the weight of your cargo. If it has a lighter load on it, the springs compress easily at first for a nice soft engagement, less bumpy ride.


Super Springs SumoSprings Air Helper Springs Installation - 2013 Ford F-250

Today on our 2013 Ford F250 we are going to take a look at and also show you how to install the SumoSprings Solo Custom Helper Restraint. These are for the rear axle. Part number is SSR-114-54. Here you can see our super springs Solo custom helper springs installed. These are an excellent solution for when you get those heavier loads in your vehicle and the rear end always sags down. The back of the truck is down, it does not offer a very good ride, especially at those hard jaunce bumpers that are typically in here. These give us a maintenance free solution as well so we are not going to have to worry about stopping by the gas station, putting air in the air bag system to level out our vehicle.


SumoSprings Maxim Rear Helper Springs Installation - 2016 Ford F-53

Today on our 2016 Forest River FR3 with the Ford F53 chassis we're going to take a look at and show you how to install the Sumo Springs Maxim Custom Helper Springs for the rear axle. Part number is SSR-187-40-1. Now, here's what our Sumo Spring Kit is going to look like. Here we've got our driver-side pre-assembled. As you can see, this custom kit is going to help to upgrade that rear suspension, take a lot of the strain off of it. We've got our upper bracket here, it's designed to mount right to the frame and then the lower bracket which is designed to fit right over our spring pack down at our lower leaf springs. Now, what these are designed to do is compress up to 80% and then they can actually extend by up to 50% to help take care of the side-to-side body roll that we get a lot of the times our of our RVs and it's also going to help to really soften up any of those heavy bumps that we encounter. Now, as they sit on your RV normally, they're not going to be doing a whole lot of work, there's very minimal change. It's when the RV starts to tip side-to-side from either wind, taking a sharp corner or even uneven pavement tossing that weight side-to-side.


Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs Installation - 2016 GMC Sierra 2500

Today we're going to take a look at and also show you how to install the Firestone Ride Right Rear Axle Air Helper Springs with the Double Convoluted Design. The part number is F2528. Now before we begin the installation we're going to get measurements on the rear wheel well, also on that front wheel well, just to determine our target to get back to when we're done. Here in the back we've got about 43 1/4 and in the front it's about 39 1/2. Now you can see we've loaded up our water tank here. What we're doing with this is just simulating either pin weight or tongue weight here in the back of the truck. Now with the weight in it looks like the rear has come down about 2 inches, it's at 41 1/4 now.


SumoSprings Maxim Front Axle Helper Springs Installation - 2010 Ford F-53

Today on our 2010 Ford F53 Chassis, which is an Allegro Open Road by Tiffin, we're going to be taking a look at and also showing you how to install the SumoSprings Maxim Custom Helper Springs for the front axle. Part number is SSF-180-40-1. Here's what our suspension upgrade kit's going to look like. As we're going down the road, you know a lot of the times we get the tilt side to side in the vehicle. Well these are going to help to counteract that as well as prevent it from even starting. These are progressive.


Firestone Ride-Rite Rear Air Helper Springs Installation - 2005 Ford Excursion

Today on this 2005 Ford Excursion, we're going to review and install the Firestone Ride Right Air Helper Springs, part number F2251. This is what the airbags look like when they're installed, in this case we're looking at a driver's side, and with the kit you get the brackets that bolt to the side of the frame that use existing holes. Below our air spring has brackets that attach to the axle and spring pack and all the hardware is included for it as well. On top you can see your air line fitting and our air line that comes with the kit and runs towards the back of our vehicle. At the end, there's a bracket that's optional if you want to use it or not, simple little device, that goes onto the bottom edge of your hitch or top edge, whatever you'd like, and you've got your air valves connected to it, left and right side. A few good reasons to have airbags put onto your excursion, or any truck for that matter is that for different loads that you're carrying, for example, in this case here we're using a cargo carrier with a load in the back, and you don't want anything on the inside for your vehicle, and it brings it down somewhat. The airbags, of course, bring the truck back up to level and it handles better. This cargo carrier could also be a motorcycle carrier, maxing out the tongue weight of the hitch as well.

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...

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • Improving the Ride Quality and Drivability of a 2016 Georgetown Class A RV on a Ford F-53 Chassis
  • 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. I have included a link to a video showing an example installation for you. For the body roll, which is that side to side rocking sensation, there are a couple of different products you can use...

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.

  • 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...

The bar on this sturdy, effective anti-sway system mounts to the rear axle and to the frame to balance weight transfer and reduce body roll. The anti-sway bar I recommend for your 2015 GMC Sierra is the Roadmaster # RM-1109-169. This sway bar will be compatible with the air bags already on your Sierra. The airbags you already have...

  • 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...

  • Rear Suspension Enhancement System for a 2000 Ford F-250 4x4 Towing Gooseneck Trailer

For an air spring system, I recommend installing the Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs, # F2550, that you referenced. This system is compatible with most gooseneck and fifth wheel hitches and have been tested for up to 5,000...

  • 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....

This will provide 2 upper brackets, two lower brackets, two upper braces and the necessary hardware. Firestone offers the brackets individually, upper bracket # F5757 and braces # F5758, but hardware isn't something they sell separately. Your best bet would be to get the entire kit.

  • I went out to the warehouse and pulled a Firestone Ride-Rite system # F2071. When fully collapsed and no air in the system it measures 2-3/4 inches not counting the valves on the top. Please note that you should always have at least 5 psi in the springs up to 100 psi. When in its regular state the bags will not expand much beyond how they come in the box. They are 6 inches tall again not counting the valves. And finally, the diameter is 5-3/4 inches. Use these measurements as guides...

  • 2015 Toyota Tundra U-bolt Torque Specs for Timbren Helper Spring Installation
  • Most hardware will have a range of torque specs they can accept but usually not as wide as 73 to 125 foot pounds. There does seem to be a lot of different information out there so to filter out the bad information the best solution is to contact a Toyota dealer, speak with a technician in the service department, and ask what the Toyota torque specs are for the suspension u-bolts. On a 2008 Tundra it is 74 foot pounds. For me, between 74 and 100 would be correct but what you could do...

  • 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.

The Firestone Kit part # F2535 is designed to fit your truck and has tech notes that say it is compatible with trucks that have fifth wheel hitch rails or gooseneck rails so it would be a great option that would have no interference.
