Video Transcript for Review of Firestone Automatic Single Gauge Pneumatic Height Control Valve - F2186

Hi, everybody, Andy here with etrailer.com, and today we're gonna take a brief look at this automatic single gauge pneumatic high control valve. Now, this single gauge pneumatic high control valve is going to work with your existing air helper springs, compressor, and tank to automatically maintain a single user set vehicle ride height. Now, this is going to work with Firestone Compressor and Air Tank kits identified by the item numbers that you see there on your screen. And this is going to inflate or deflate your air helper springs automatically as a pair, maintaining a single user set ride height consistently, no matter the load size. The ride height is adjustable to accommodate off-road loading applications, and this is going to attach to your vehicle's axle to detect an increase or reduction in your ride height. So, this kit includes everything that you see here on the table before me.

You're going to get two sets of instructions to walk you through the insulation process of the components of this kit. And that's going to conclude our look today. I do hope that it was helpful for you. Again, my name is Andy, thank you for joining me.

The height control valve works exactly as it should.this particular vlve has a slow response to changes in height, which is good for a small air compressor/tank setup so as to not be cycling so much. Depending on your application there may be some fabrication of brackets, etc. to make it work properly. The small bracket provided that only had one hole drilled in it would not work for my situation.
I installed this along with a compressor and tank combination to the air spring setup on a 2020 ford f350 single rear wheel truck.

  • Does The Firestone Automatic Single-Gauge Height Control Valve Have A Delay When Activated?
    I spoke with Firestone about the Automatic, Single-Gauge Pneumatic Height-Control Valve # F2186 and they let me know that this system does not have a control gauge, so there is no delay once the leveling arm is moved to either the upper or lower limit.

  • Troubleshooting Left/Right Height Difference with Firestone Height-Control Valve kit F2186-2047
    The Firestone Automatic Single-Gauge Pneumatic Height-Control Valve kit # F2186-2047 that you had installed along with the air bag kit # F2525 controls air bag pressure for both springs equally so the issue with your uneven height from side to side is likely to be with a leak from the extra T that is on the right side air line. I am not sure why this was installed but odds are that there is a leak there that is preventing full and equal pressure from reaching the right air bag. This would...

  • Does Firestone Automatic Single Gauge Compressor Kit Come with Single or Dual Inflation Valve
    The picture that the Firestone Automatic, Single-Gauge Pneumatic Height-Control Valve w/ Compressor # F2186-2047 has on it's product page is a typical photo that is basically a generic representation of a compressor kit and not what you'd actually get if you ordered this. The kit comes with a single Tee valve that allows you to control the pressure of both bags equally with one inflation valve.

  • Will the Firestone Automatic Height-Control Valve Compressor System Work with Air Lift Air Bags
    The Firestone Automatic, Single-Gauge Pneumatic Height-Control Valve with Compressor, 1/2-Gallon Tank part # F2186-2047 is compatible with all Air Lift air bag systems. This includes the Ultimate version which comes equipped with integrated jounce bumpers. The connections to the air bags and air line will be the same as if you were attaching them to Firestone air bags and air lines.

  • Does Firestone Automatic Leveling Compressor F2186-2047 Include The Leveling Sensors?
    The Firestone Automatic, Single-Gauge Pneumatic Height-Control Valve w/ Compressor, 1/2-Gallon Tank # F2186-2047 you were looking at includes everything needed to control your air helper springs and keep your 2012 Toyota Tundra level. This kit uses the height control valves to know when the truck is level, or when it needs to be raised/lowered.

  • Does Automatic Single-Gauge Pneumatic Height # F2186 Require Compressor
    To use the part # F2186 you do need to use a compressor and tank kit like the part # F2047. It does not work on it's own. I'd maybe try a kit like the # F2047 first to see if you are okay with how much input it requires and then decide if you want to go with the # F2186.

  • Operation of the Firestone Air Compressor Kits
    When using the Firestone Automatic, Single-Gauge Pneumatic Height-Control Valve w/ Compressor # F2186-2047 you choose the height that the bags are filled to. The "automatic" system is just maintaining the pressure that you choose, so essentially you are manually adjusting them, the compressor is just keeping it where you want it. If you are looking for more control, we have the Firestone Air Command II - Analog Gauge w/ Heavy Duty Compressor # F2219. The # F2219 allows you to manually...

  • Will The Firestone Air Bag Helper Springs For 2024 GMC Sierra 2500 Void The Factory Warranty?
    Installing the Firestone Ride-Rite Red Label Extreme Duty Air Helper Springs # F2709 will not void the warranty on your 2024 GMC Sierra 2500. Do remember that these will not increase your payload or towing capabilities, they simply make it safer to carry heavy loads by not allowing for as much rear end sag. The Firestone Automatic, Single-Gauge Pneumatic Height-Control Valve # F2186-2047 will automatically adjust the air pressure in the air springs to maintain the ride height for your...

  • Air Bag Helper Springs & Ride Height Air Control 2020 GMC Sierra 1500 Denali Adaptive Ride Control
    The Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs # F2609 are compatible with your 2020 GMC Sierra Denali 1500 4wd having the adaptive ride control. The adaptive ride control uses sensors to monitor the wheel position with the body and adjusts rebound and dampening on the shocks to give a better ride. The air springs will not cause a harsher ride like some other systems. The Firestone # F2186-2047 will also work with your Sierra. The sensor on it detects ride height changes and will increase...

  • Troubleshooting Firestone Air Bag System that Wont Hold Pressure
    There's a leak somewhere on the air lines or fittings of your air bag. What you'll need to do is go over all of the lines and fittings and see if you can find the leak and fix as needed. If the leak is on the line right at the fitting you can take the line off, cut it square with a line cutter # AL10530, and then reinstall it and that should fix it. If you put some soapy water in a spray bottle and spray the lines that can help pinpoint where the leak is as well.

  • Do The Firestone Air Bag Helper Springs Replace The Factory Shocks on 2001 Chevy Suburban 1500?
    The Firestone Coil-Rite Air Helper Springs # F4108 which fit inside the coil springs on your 2001 Chevrolet Suburban 1500 are in addition to the factory shocks. These will not replace your shocks as they provide additional support to your coil springs to reduce rear end sag when loading with additional weight. The Springs # F2398 you found are for a Ford Super Duty and will not fit your Suburban. The Firestone Automatic, Single-Gauge Pneumatic Height-Control Valve w/ Compressor # F2186-2047...

    Currently the Firestone Automatic, Single-Gauge Pneumatic Height-Control Valve w/ Compressor # F2186-2047 is our only system which allows you to set a height for the vehicle. The compressor has a maximum pressure rating of 150psi so it can be used with a variety of different air ride systems.

  • Available Rear Air Helper Springs For a 2015 Chevrolet Colorado
    We do have a similar Air Lift Ride Control Air Helper Springs Kit # AL59533 as Firestone no longer manufactures the kit F2587. The Air Lift kit is custom fit for your 2015 Chevrolet Colorado. The Firestone Automatic-Leveling Compressor System # F2186-2047 will allow you to automatically control the air pressure in your air springs for the height of your Colorado. So as you add weight to the bed of your truck the air pressure will increase to reduce suspension sag.

  • Recommended Firestone Air Spring And Compressor Setup For A 2022 GMC Sierra 2500
    Hey Jeff, There unfortunately isn't an all-in-one kit for your 2022 GMC Sierra 2500 but you can get the compressor, 1/2 gallon tank, and automatic leveling sensor with part # F2186-2047. The No-Drill Mount Kit # F2530 you were looking at would also be a compatible match for the compressor/air tank kit. For the air springs you'll need part # F2613. With the payload capacity of your truck maxing out at 3,900lbs these 5k capacity springs will be more than enough to help level the truck when...

  • Air Suspension System That Also Can Be Used to Fill Tires?
    I have a solution for you, but I talked to my contact over at Air Lift about this and it really is not a cost effective solution because it would involve purchasing an additional tank and air compressor system to replace the system that is included, as well as wiring in solenoids, low pressure switches and re-wiring the system. The AirLift # AL25491 is a great system because it provides individualized inflation to each air bag in the system, but you would spend considerably more in parts...

  • Will The Air Lift Load Controller Compressor Work w/Firestone Red Label Springs 2020 Silverado 2500?
    While the Air Lift Load Controller II Compressor System # AL25592 can be used with the Firestone Ride-Rite Red Label Extreme Duty Air Helper Springs # F2709 on your 2022 Chevrolet Silverado 2500, I recommend against this. The Air Lift compressor system is rated for up to 100psi while the Firestone springs are capable of supporting up to 150psi. We do have the Firestone Automatic, Single-Gauge Pneumatic Height-Control Valve w/ Compressor # F2186-2047. This will allow you a similar auto leveling...
