Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement System Installation - 2006 Toyota Sienna

Today, on our 2006 Toyota Sienna, we're going to be installing the Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement, part number TTORSEN04. All right. Now, let's get some factory measurements here. Let's figure out how our van sits before any load's on it. Here in the rear, it looks like we're going to be at about 29-1/4 inches, and here at the front, we've got about 29-3/4. Now, that we've got a load on our vehicle, you can see we're getting that rear-end sag that's common when you're towing, when you've got your van loaded with your passengers, pets, all the goodies, everything you need for camping, or maybe you got that 4-bike rack hanging off the bike. Whatever the situation is, it draws the rear of the vehicle down.


Air Lift Air Helper Springs Installation - 2011 Dodge Nitro

Today on this 2011 Dodge Nitro, we're going to show you an Airlift 1000 Air Helper Springs for Coil Springs. Part number AL60820. Now, before we do our install, we'll go ahead and put a load in the back of a vehicle and we'll go ahead and take it on our test course over the bumps to see how suspension works without any help over the bumps. Now, original measurement before we put the load in the vehicle was 32" and now with our weight in the vehicle, we'll go ahead and get our next measurement. Our new measurement's going to be about 31". We'll go ahead and check our measurement now with loaded and airbag's in use. It's a little over 32".


SuperSprings Coil SumoSprings Helper Springs Installation - 2013 Jeep Patriot

Hey, guys, today I'm going to show you how to install the coil Sumo Springs from Super Springs, Part No. CSS-1125. I have my 2013 Jeep Patriot here, and I have the spring. I did have to make a small cut to chop off the spring. This is the piece that I cut off, about 3, 3-1/2 inches. The manufacturer says that they don't want any overlap more than an inch, so they'd prefer about 1/2 inch to an inch of overlap, basically just meaning that the springs don't overlap more than like this. There is a top and bottom to this spring.


Firestone Level Command II Installation - 2004 Ford F-250

Today on this 2004 Ford F250 Super Duty, we are going to show you the Firestone Level Command 2, Part Number F2158. First off, this will allow you to control the air pressure levels from the vehicle cab. It operates the bags with a single switch. Now this system is designed to level one pair of air springs, equally on each side. This kit comes with everything you need to control the air springs. The air compressor is actually rated for 130 lbs max. PSI. First up, let's go ahead and find the location for our compressor.


Firestone Work-Rite Air Helper Springs Kit Installation - 2014 Ram 2500

Today on this 2014 Ram 2500 Crew Cab we're going to show you the Firestone Work Right Custom Helper Spring Kit, part number F8611. With a heavy load, the rear suspension will sag and reduce handling. When Work Right springs are installed these springs will also increase the driving stability and handling giving you more control when hauling a load down the road. You can see how the spring actually just barely touches the inaudible 00:00:29 axle, which is perfectly okay. Under normal circumstances when the truck's not loaded, you probably won't feel much at all. When the truck does get loaded, it actually compresses on the springs a little bit and will actually level up the load on the inside of the truck. In this case, it's probably going to be a gooseneck trailer. We'll go ahead and lift the weight of the truck off the suspension to give us a little more working room.


Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs Installation - 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 2500

Today on our 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 we're going to show you the Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs, part number F2528. First we'll go ahead and get a quick measurement from the fender well to the ground. This is our truck, before we put our load in it, it's about 43". Before we get our install, we'll go ahead and put some weight in the back of the truck and well observe how the suspension works the weight in the truck in stock format 00:00:27. With the weight in the truck we'll get a quick measurement to give you an idea how much weight we put in there. We're down to, form our wheel well to the ground, about 41-1/2". Let's go ahead and take it through our test course with bumps and everything.


Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs Installation - 2006 Ford F-150

Today on our 2006 Ford F-150, we're going to take a look at show you how to install the Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs. These are the double convoluted airbags for the rear axle. Part number is F2350. Here you can see our Firestone airbags once they're installed. These mount between your vehicle's axle and the frame of the vehicle to help increase your safe load handling capacity. Now it's not going to increase over the manufacturer's recommended carrying capacities, but it helps you to travel safer, it's going to make your vehicle more stable, going to help it to handle better. They're going to help increase the tire wear, and even level out your headlights.


Timbren Rear Suspension System Installation - 2013 Ford F-350

Today on our 2013 Ford F-350, we're going to take a look at and show you how to install the Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement System. This is Part Number TFR-350-SDF. Now the Timbren suspension and enhancement is an aon rubber spring. This is designed to take place to the jounce stop already in your vehicle. It's got the double design here that when your vehicle is empty doesn't affect ride at all. You've got just the same as what our factory ride would be.


Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Air Helper Springs Installation - 2012 Ford F-150

Today in our 2012 Ford F-150, we're going to review an install of the Air Lift Vehicle Suspension LoadLifter 5000 Ultimate Air Helper Springs, part number AL88200. Here's what our air bag assemblies will look like once they're installed. The LoadLifter 5000s are capable up to 5,000 pounds and can be aired up from 5 psi to 100 psi. This is a really nice system, works well with the vehicle's current frame and suspension system with minimum modifications. This is a perfect add-on system to help carry heavy loads, keep the vehicle from squatting and wearing out the rear suspension. While it's not required, it can make it easier and give you more working room underneath if you go ahead and lower and remove the spare tire, as we've done here. To begin our install, we're going to go ahead and remove the manufacturer's jounce bumper. The jounce bumper is secured to the frame with a bolt up through the center. Once we have the jounce bumper out, we'll go ahead and set it aside, as it will not be reinstalled.

Vehicle Suspension Questions and Answers

  • 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...

  • 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...

Since it is possible that a 2015 model year RV could be based on a 2014 F-53 you'll want to verify the model year of the base chassis. A separate link is provided for suspension kits for 2014 model year F-53s. The products referenced fit both model years. For a 2015 F-53 we offer both hollow rubber springs and micro-cellular type jounce springs. For a front-axle...

  • 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.

  • 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...

I have also included a link to the installation instructions for you.

  • Can Firestone Air Helper Springs be Used with Existing Reese Fifth Wheel Hitch Kit on a 2013 F-250

  • 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...

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, #...

  • 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...

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...

  • Can AirLift 1000 Rear Axle Helper Spring # AL60815 Support Trailer with 600-lbs Tongue Weight
  • The rear-axle air bag kit you referenced, AirLift 1000 Helper Spring # AL60815, provides up to 1000-lbs of load leveling at its maximum pressure rating of 35-lbs psi. Your trailer with approximately 600-lb tongue weight would certainly fall within the operating range for this product. If you are towing often and frequently have widely varying trailer weights then an adjustable air bag kit like this AirLift 1000 is a good choice for adding rear-end support.

  • 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....

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