Firestone Ride-Rite Air Spring Basics

Firestone Ride-Rite springs are designed to increase safety and reduce the strain on your vehicle when you are hauling heavy loads or towing a heavy trailer. The springs partner with your existing rear suspension system to help keep your vehicle level, maintain even load distribution and increase stability. Hauling heavy loads or towing a heavy trailer can make the rear of your vehicle sag and the front end rise. This puts more strain on your rear axle and reduces contact between your front tires and the road, causing problems with braking, steering control and traction. By adding air springs to your rear suspension, you can help to level your vehicle and improve braking and handling. The air springs also help to level your headlight beams and reduce wear on your tires.


Firestone Ride-Rite air spring airline installation

Adjustable Air Pressure

The air pressure in your Ride-Rite springs can be adjusted manually, side to side, to compensate for off-center loads. A centered load improves the stability of your vehicle by reducing body roll. The air springs will also help to absorb road shock and to soften contact between your axle and frame. This prevents bottoming out, thus improving ride comfort. Route the air line tubing for the springs to your vehicle's bumper to provide easy access to the manual inflation valves.


Firestone Ride-Ride air spring components

Air Spring Construction

Firestone's double-convoluted Ride-Rite air springs are designed to give you maximum load support and enhance the performance and ride comfort of your vehicle. The rubber springs provide cushioning between your suspension components and operate at up to 100 psi. The springs have four layers of reinforced rubber to ensure durability and enhance load support. A braided wire girdle creates the double-convoluted shape of each air spring, increasing the burst pressure of the spring. The rubber springs are attached to corrosion-resistant metal end plates with a time-proven, rolled crimp seal that keeps the bags securely anchored.


Firestone Ride-Rite air spring installation

Air Spring Installation

Each Ride-Rite kit includes custom-fit brackets that connect to your axle and frame. The brackets provide the mounting points for the air springs. Drilling may be required for some applications.

Running a 1300 pound truck camper in a Ram 1500, with 30 psi, the truck handles like nothing is there. Had it semi off road with no issues. The only pain was the install due to having to drill the frame, but other than that I have no complaints. 617058

I Purchased these airbags as replacement for my original Firestone airbags that were so old, they were then known as Airstroke Actuator Bags (a good 20 years old). These new Ride-Rite bags are made from a slightly softer and more pliable compound, and are comparable to the bags on Semi-Trucks, but smaller. The ride is greatly improved, and I also like that these bags were a super easy swap from my old bags - same exact hardware. The original bags were about an hour and a half setup with drilling the frame. To swap out the old bags with the new was about 45 minutes. Overall, I am VERY satisfied with this purchase. Thanks again to the ETrailer Crew for getting my shipment expedited so I was able to get the new bags on before my next trailer towing trip. 824374

Review from a similar Ride-Rite in Vehicle Suspension


Package arrived in good shape and when promised. Installation was very straight forward as per the instructions. The only difficulty I had was threading the large nylocnut on to the airbag. Because of the limited access and view it was very difficult especially with the brass fitting already screwed into the airbag stem. I removed the airbag, removed the brass fitting then screwed the large nut over the stem several times. This made it easier to install the nut once everything was put back together as per the instruction and complete my installation. 638817

  • Gooseneck Hitch Compatible with Firestone Ride Rite Suspension for 2001 Dodge Ram 3500 4X4 Dually
    According to Firestone, the Ride Rite Air Spring Kits compatible with your truck would indeed prevent you from installing a fifth wheel or gooseneck hitch. The air spring assemblies install on the outboard side of the side of the truck frame, as would the frame mounting brackets for a gooseneck or fifth wheel hitch. Your best bet would be to replace your existing air bags with a solution that mounts to the bottom of the frame members, replacing the factory bump stop like the Timbren...

  • Air Helper Springs for a 2001 Dodge Ram 4x4 Extended Cab with B&W Gooseneck Hitch
    The B&W Turnoverball Underbed Gooseneck trailer hitch you have on your 2001 Dodge Ram pickup has mounting brackets installed on the outsides of the frame rails. So the Firestone Ride-Helper springs # F2071 won't fit because it mounts on the side of the frame rails too. For a standard height 2001 Dodge Ram 1500 and 2500 series, I recommend the Timbren suspension # TDR1525H4 as it will mount underneath the bed frame rail and won't interfere with your B&W Turnoverball Underbed Gooseneck...

  • How Much Air Pressure Should be Run in Firestone Ride Rite Kits
    With Firestone Ride Rite kits like the part # F2071 the absolute minimum psi you will need to run is 5 psi. This prevents the bags from getting damaged. Typically people run the amount of pressure that allows the vehicle to sit as level as possible when loaded. Going with more pressure will cause the ride quality to be harsh and bouncy. Too little and the suspension may still sag. Trial and error is the best way to find the perfect amount. I attached a help article on Firestone air...

    As long as the air bag mounting brackets do not mount in the same place on the truck frame as the B&W gooseneck brackets then you can install air bags on a 1999 Dodge Ram. Firestone kit # F2071 would not work because it mounts on the outsides of the truck frame rails the same as the gooseneck brackets. Looking through the other air bag options for the truck all of them have upper brackets that would interfere. Another option is a Timbren set up # TDR1525H2. It can be used on a 1500...

  • How to Determine Correct Inflation Pressure for Firestone Ride Rite Helper Springs
    Air Helper springs for a tow vehicle or RV's suspension always have a fairly wide range of operating pressure. For instance the Firestone kit you mentioned # F2071 requires nothing less than the minimum 5-psi pressure at all times but can be inflated to as much as 100-psi when the vehicle requires this much stiffening of its suspension. There are also kits such as Firestone # F2700 that are for extra-heavy-duty applications and these use air springs that can handle as much as 150-psi pressure. There...

  • Air Lift or Helper Spring Recommendation for a 2000 Ford F-250 Super Duty Towing a Camper Trailer
    The product that will work best for you will depend on how you will be using your truck and why you are looking for a suspension enhancement system. If you are looking to level your truck because you do a lot of hauling with varying load weights and tow the trailer occasionally then the air bags would work well. I would recommend using the Air Lift LoadLifter air springs, # AL57298, for 2 wheel drive or, # AL57390 for 4 wheel drive models of the 2000 F250. I recommend these air bags...

  • Are Spacers Needed to Install Firestone Air Bags on a Lifted Truck
    If your lift is on the front of the truck but not the rear then you would not need to use any spacers to install Firestone air bags # F2071. On the rear, you would need spacers if the distance between the truck frame and the axle has increased. The size of the spacer is going to depend on the amount of lift. Firestone has the following: For vehicles with 1-1/4 inch lift use # F2536 For 2 inches use # F2366 For 3 inches use # F2368 For 4 inches use # F2371 For 6 inches use # F2375

These are double convoluted which makes them more durable than many other brands. They have a weight capacity of 4,800 lbs but keep in mind that this does not increase the weight capacity of your F-250.

  • Should Air Bag Helper Springs Be Inflated Before Applying Trailer Tongue Load
    You'd be better off hitching the trailer or loading the truck bed or the vehicle's cargo area before adding or removing air from the system. The trailer tongue weight or cargo loaded in/on the vehicle will cause the rear end of the vehicle to squat. You can then add air as needed to even out the ride height between the front and rear vehicle axles. If you run a consistent trailer load, I guess you could use a tire gauge to determine the proper air pressure, then pressurize the system to...

    When using an air suspension system like part # F2071, the amount of air you keep in the air bags will vary.
