Now that we've added just a little bit of weight to the back of the truck, we're now going to see that the suspension's taken some of the load that we're now down to about 39 3/4". So, we lost about 1 1/2" of our level here in the rear. Here on our driver's side, just above our jounce, we do have the fuel lines that are going to run right through there.

Today on this 2004 Ford F-350 Super Duty, we're going to install part number F2550. This is the Firestone Ride Right Air Helper Springs. A few notes about our install, is that to make things a little bit easier, we removed the spare tire to get it out of our way. Now also this vehicle had a previous set of air springs installed, and has since been removed. Typically there'd be a john stop that we'd have to remove from the bottom of the frame, but that's already been removed. We'll start with basically a bone-stock frame. There's pre-existing bushing that's in the frame. We'll need to reuse that.

Ford F-250 and F-350 Super Duty Vehicle Suspension Questions and Answers


  • Fit of Firestone # F2535 Ride Rite Air Helper Springs on 2015 Ford F350
  • Is it possible that your 2013 F250 was a Diesel and your 2015 F350 has a gas engine? If that's the case, it would explain the difficulties you're having. The # F2535 is intended for Diesel engine vehicles, while the # F2550 is for Gas engines. The only difference between the two kits is the brackets. To fit the # F2535 to your 2015 F350, you'd need a new bracket for the driver's side, part # F5572.

  • Will Firestone Air Bags Fit a 2014 Ford F-250 with 3-1/2 Inch Lift and 5th Wheel Hitch
  • It is possible to install Firestone Ride-Rite helper springs # F2535 on your 2014 Ford F-250 diesel with the 3-1/2 inch lift. You would have to use a spacer kit.

The AL57396 is a regular LoadLifter air spring, without the built-In jounce bumpers. It's compatible with 2WD trucks. For your 2WD model, you'd choose between the # AL88395...

The Firestone rear suspension kit you referenced, part # F8615, is a rubber jounce spring kit, not an air bag kit.

The main reason that I would choose the Timbrens over the Ride-Rite is because you have a camper that weighs approximately 2200 lbs and the Ride-Rites handle between 3200 and 5000 lbs. The Timbrens activate whenever a load is encountered and stabilize that load accordingly. The Timbrens have a 6,000 lb weight...

  • The rounded platform that comes into contact with the Timbren springs # TFR250SDG on your 2013 Ford F-250 will not be an issue. The Timbren springs install in place of the factory bump stops that would also come into contact with this platform. The Timbren springs are bolted into place and centered over that platform and cannot move so there is no worry of them slipping off. The bed, when loaded down, will come straight down compressing the suspension so there is no worry of it coming...

  • Will Firestone Air Bag Suspension Kit F2550 Fit 2013 Ford F-250 with B and W Gooseneck Trailer Hitch
  • The B and W Turnover gooseneck hitch for the 2013 Ford F-250, # BWGNRK1111, has brackets that mount to the outsides of the frame rails on the truck. Firestone air bags # F2550 uses brackets that mount on the insides of the frame rails and require a bolt that goes through the frame to the outside. The B and W brackets also use this same hole and it is permissible to install the air bag using this same mounting hole and one bolt to secure the center part of the hitch bracket and the air...

  • Recommended Suspension Enhancement for 2013 Ford F250 with Service Body
  • We have a Timbren Aeon Spring system that is specifically designed for service-body truck and has the high capacity necessary for such a vehicle, part # TFRTT350F. The springs will add extra support to your rear suspension, and will become progressively stiffer as more weight is added. A weight distribution system would work best for combating the squat you experience when towing, but the Timbren system will help somewhat. Since you tow infrequently and for short distances, you can probably...

  • Comparison Between TorkLift And SuperSprings SuperSway-Stops For 2013 Ford F-350
  • The biggest difference between the TorkLift StableLoad Suspension, part # TLA7200, and the SuperSprings SuperSway-Stops, part # SSS-2, is the warranty. Torklift provides a lifetime warranty versus a 2-year warranty on the SuperSprings. Both are designed to replace the factory bump stops on your 2013 Ford F-250, and will help reduce side-to-side sway and body roll. Both are easy to install and require no drilling.

  • Front and Rear Axle Helper Springs for a 2013 Ford F-350 Dually 4x4
  • To prevent sag when towing or carrying heavy loads in the truck bed you would just need rear helper springs on your 2013 Ford F-350. But this can put more stress on the front axle and suspension and the ride would not be as good if you used front and rear helper springs. With that said what I recommend is to start out with just rear springs because you could always add front helper springs later should you determine that you need to. For rear Timbren helper springs you can use # TFR350SDF....

  • Recommended heavy-Duty Air Spring System For 2013 Ford F-250 4x4 Diesel
  • I do have a solution for your F-250 diesel. I recommend the Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Ultimate Air Helper Springs, part # AL88396. This system will work with tongue weight up to 5,000-lbs. It uses the air springs but also has internal jounce bumpers as a back-up in case the air springs should lose pressure. The air pressure can be adjusted from 5 to 100 psi depending on the load you are carrying. Since you mentioned the 2-gallon reserve air tank I recommend the Air Lift QuickShot...

  • Recommended Compressor-Compatbile Air Helper Springs for 2013 Ford F350 Dually
  • If your F350 Dually is a Diesel model, I'd recommend the Firestone Ride-Rite # F2535. If your truck has gasoline engine (but not a SuperCab V10 model with the 8 foot bed), use the # F2550. Both system are compatible with a fifth wheel or gooseneck hitch, so if you have one now or plan on installing one in the future, either kit would be compatible. If your compressor kit was manufactured by Firestone or AirLift, either kit mentioned above would work. The Work-Rite kit you mentioned,...

  • Suspension Enhancement Recommendation For 2013 Ford F-350 Lariat Dually
  • The Firestone Vehicle Suspension, part # F2535 is designed to work with a 2013 Ford F-350 if it has a diesel engine installed. This system will help level your truck when you place heavy loads in the bed. It has separate valves for manual inflation which helps make sure you keep the bed level. If you have a gasoline engine in your F-350 the Ride-Rite kit you will want is part # F2550. These suspension kits are designed to work with a suspension system that is in good working condition....

  • Suspension Enhancement Recommendation for a 2013 Ford F-350 with Air Bags and Camper
  • Timbrens can be installed with an air bag setup on a truck so what you are looking to do is technically possible. Typically people go with one system or the other, but the two utilize separate mounting points so they will work just fine together. What I would recommend though instead of the Timbren is the Firestone Work-Rite Kit part # F8615 as they come with spacer to allow you to fine tune when the system engages and we have found that they offer a smoother unloaded ride quality than...

  • Will Firestone Air Bag Helper Springs Fit a 2013 Ford F-250 4x4 with Pullrite 5th Wheel Hitch
  • For Firestone kit # F2535 the passenger side uses a special frame nut that is around 1/2 inch thick overall at most and that is counting the nub that fits in the frame hole. I am 99 percent sure that it will all fit with little to no modification required except for 1 issue. The bolts will probably stick out further. And you do want some threads to stick out past the end of the nuts they are threaded into. So if it were just the nuts I don't see an issue, but with the bolt length there...

  • 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...

  • Recommended Front and Rear Suspension Enhancement for 2012 Ford F-350 Crew Cab Diesel
  • Good news, I can help outfit your vehicle with suspension enhancement. If you have a 2WD model, you will want the Firestone # F4101 for the front and # F2535 for the rear. If you have a 4WD model F-350, you will want the Firestone # F4160 for the front and # F2535 for the rear. It's important to note that suspension enhancement products like these Firestone airbags are not designed to lift the truck from stock height, but are designed to reduce the sag of the vehicle when towing....

  • Recommended Suspension Enhancement System for a 2012 Ford F-350 4x4 with Max Tow Weight of 15,500 LB
  • I recommend going with the Timbren rear suspension system # TFR350SDF because it will keep your 2012 Ford F-350 4x4 more level and improve driving performance. The Timbren springs won't compress as much and have a higher weight rating. I think you will be very pleased with the Timbren system because they are designed to work with heavy loads. The weight capacity is 8,600 pounds and will be more than enough for your setup. The SumoSprings # SSR-104-54 that you referenced is not a...

  • Rear Suspension Enhancement Recommendation for a 2012 Ford F-250 4x4 Crew Cab Diesel
  • The Timbren suspension enhancement, # TFR250SDG, that you have referenced is my first choice for your truck. The Timbren springs are designed to do exactly what you need plus they will reduce side to side body roll, absorb road shock, and will not affect the empty ride of the vehicle. When you have a load in the bed, like your 5th wheel trailer, the bed will drop and what the Timbren springs do is take of the gap between the axle and frame more than the factory bump stops. This is what...

  • Will Firestone Air Bags Fit a 2012 Ford F-350 with Factory 5th Wheel Prep Package
  • Take a look under your 2012 Ford F-350 to see where the brackets are mounted for the 5th wheel prep package. They should be installed on the upper half of the frame rails on the outsides of the frame. Any suspension kit including # F2535 that does not install in this same area will fit. A B and W hitch must install in areas needed by Firestone kit # F2535 and that is why it is excluded. The Firestone kit installs using some existing holes and mounting location already present on the...

  • Do Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs # F2550 Work With 5th Wheel Hitch on 2012 F350 4WD Diesel
  • The Reese 5th Wheel Under-Bed Rail Kit you installed in your truck, part # RP30126, installs with its attachment brackets on the outsides of your truck frame rails. You cannot use a rear axle suspension kit that attaches in the same location. The kit you referenced, Firestone # F2535, is a correct fit for your diesel F-350, but please note this kit cannot be used if your truck is lifted or if the stock jounce bumper spacers have been removed.

  • Can Firestone Ride-Rite Air Springs # F2550 Enable Lowering Rear End of 2012 Ford F-250 Super Duty
  • The Firestone Ride-Rite Rear Axle Helper Air Springs # F2550 that you referenced are a correct fit for your 2012 F-250 Super Duty, but they are intended to support a rear suspension in good working order when carrying a heavy or uneven load. When installed in your truck this kit will not allow the rear of the vehicle to drop down lower than it does already. We do offer a variety of loading ramps, including fixed, telescoping and folding types, but these are not intended for use with...

  • The Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Air Helper Springs, # AL57396, install on the insides of the frame rails on the truck. If you look at your gooseneck brackets that are on your vehicle now and they mount on the outside of the frame it is possible that these two systems could work together. You will need to compare the instructions for the Air Lift kit which I have linked for you with the current situation on your truck to determine fit.

  • Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement Recommendation for a 2012 Ford F-250 Super Duty 4x4 Long Bed
  • Adding the Timbren suspension enhancement springs to your 2012 Ford F-250 Super Duty 4x4 is a great way to help support your camper and other loads that you may carry throughout the year. The peg style casting on your rear axle that you are referring to will withstand the contact of the Timbren suspension systems. Timbren designed their rubber springs to contact that peg and in the instruction manual that I have attached, they state not to remove the peg. The Timbren rear suspension...

It is also confirmed to fit a diesel, and works with a fifth wheel or gooseneck hitch installed.

The Ride-Rite air bags are compatible with the Reese universal brackets and the Elite Series...

  • We have many rear suspension enhancement options for your 2012 Ford F-250 Super Duty, but to determine which kit will work best, we will want to take a look at the frame brackets for your fifth wheel hitch. On Ford Super Duty trucks, there is a hole in the frame rail just above the rear axle (see photo). If that hole is exposed, then I recommend installing the Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs, # F2535. Firestone is an industry leader in the air bag market and this kit was designed...

The brackets for the air springs will install on the inboard side and bottoms of the truck frame rails.
