Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs Installation - 2003 Chevy Silverado
Today on this 2003 Chevy Silverado 2500 series we are going to be installing Firestone air ride system part number F2250. Before we actually get started working on the vehicle itself, we are going to do a little prep work to our air suspension kit. We are installing on the passenger side of the vehicle first. And I have the parts necessary for the passenger side laid out right here. The bottom bracket which is this larger piece right here is going to be standard. It will be the same piece on both the driver and passenger sides. The upper bracket, however, is going to be different. If you look on the bottom side of the bracket, there is an R or and L punched in there for right or left side of the vehicle. And you will notice that the part numbers are different as well. So, t he right one is going to be for the passenger side of the vehicle. We will take the air spring and we want to remove the coverings here from the top two studs and for the threaded portion for the air fitting. We are going to start the installation off by mounting the air spring to the upper bracket. What we want to take is one of the 3/8 by 1-1/2 inch bolts and go ahead and it from the bottom of the bracket up on the short leg. If you look at the bracket, you can see there is a higher leg and a shorter leg. You want to feed that onto the shorter leg. Go ahead and take the provided heat shield and it onto the air spring and put the upper bracket on. We are going to align the two 3/8 inch holes over the two studs on the air spring. Then we will take two of the locking hex nuts and go ahead and mount the upper bracket to the air spring. The heat shield here is only going to be used on the passenger side of the vehicle. And what we want to do when we tighten these 3/8 bolts down is to make sure the bracket stays aligned where the larger hole goes over where the air fitting is going to be. The fitting will thread in easily by hand until you get to the thread locker and then it will get hard to turn. Once you get to that point, go ahead and take a wrench and get it to fully seat another ¾ to one full turn. And what we want is the open end of the fitting to face out towards the heat shield. 2:06
