Today on the 2004 Ford F250 Super Duty Crew Cab, we're going to show you part number: #F2550. This is a Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs. All right, now before we start our install, we'll go ahead and get a quick measurement of the height of the truck before we install our air springs. From the ground to the top of the wheel well will be about forty and a quarter inches. We'll go ahead and put some weight in the back of the truck, then we'll go ahead and get a second measurement.

Before we install our helper springs from Firestone, we're going to get a measurement and see how this truck sits normally and unloaded. As you can see, we've got about 41 1/4" to the bottom edge of our wheel well. We'll put some weight in the back, that's going to draw that down some and we'll get another measurement. 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.

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.

First, we've gone ahead and raised the vehicle up, lowered and removed the spare tire to give us more access underneath the vehicle. Now, we need to remove the jounce bumper here on the passenger side. Keep in mind, loose so you 00:00:22 get the nut that secures the jounce bumper in place. The more difficult would be as the nipple at the top of the jounce bumper will come out of the frame, so maybe necessary to secure it with a pair of pliers or Channellocks. Now with the jounce bumper out of the way, we're ready to go ahead and install the upper bracket. The upper bracket will consist of the metal bracket, the attachment bolt that will go through the bottom of the bracket to this spacer block, then to the frame at the point of where we just removed the jounce bumper. We'll secure it with a large flat washer and 3/8 lock nut. We also secured the upper bracket using a 3/4 inch, 3 inch bolt flat washer running it from outside of the frame to the inside through the bracket, then adding a large flat washer, split lock washer, and 3/4 inch nut. With both fasteners in place and secure, we're ready to move onto the lower bracket.

First we'll go ahead and compress the air helper spring with jounce bumper. Then we'll do one without. Here is a side-by-side comparison. With the internal jounce bumper, it will prevent the air bellow from being pinched if you we're ever to lose air while the vehicle is loaded.

The drivers side installs the exact same way with a few minor additions. On the drivers side you'll want to make sure that you keep the wiring harness out of the way of the air spring and the hardware.

SuperSprings Vehicle Suspension Installation - 2010 Ford F-350
Today on this 2010 Ford F-350 Super Duty, we are going to install part number SSA10 from SuperSprings. The first thing you want to do is go ahead and get the vehicle up in the air a little bit. You do not have to take off the wheel, but it makes things a lot easier to fit inside there. So, we have our wheel off. We have the suspension unloaded. And basically what is going to happen is we are going to set a block that goes on top of the factory overload spring right here. Alright, the first thing we want to do is go ahead and install this block that fits right here. Now this will fit a couple of different vehicles. You will need to flip it around and find out which is the best fit. Once you have that just like that, you can take the SuperSpring and lay it on top. And you will have to maneuver it around some cables, especially the parking brake cables, and make sure you do not hit anything else in the way. We also took off the bolts that go through the bottom, just to make it easier to thread everything inside because the unit does come preassembled. 1:07
Rear Air Helper Springs Installation - 2006 Ford F-250

We are going to start off on our install by doing the driver side of the vehicle. The first thing we need to do to get started is to remove the old factory bump stop which is right here. There is a bolt on top that you have to get from the back side of the frame to unbolt it and it should come apart. It is a good idea to spray it down with some lubricant too to help remove it because that bolt does get rusted pretty easily. Moving on to the upper bracket, that is this piece right here, and it is going to wrap around the frame and it is going to have the spacer block that will go on top just like this. 00:54
