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.

How many stars (1-5, 5 being Excellent) would you give the product: 4 ½ on both items Product Review: Installed the Firestone Air Command Compressor system and Firestone Ride-Rite helper rear Air Bags on my 2020 F-250 Super Duty (Lariat Sport Edition). The install was pretty straight forward and took 5 hours for all components. Put my truck up on the rack and removed factory jounce bumper and installed the upper bracket of the air spring with no issues. Installed bottom bracket and bag again with no issues (Pic drivers side bag). Had to make a slight cut out to the bottom axle strap bracket on the passenger side to account for brake line (Pic passenger side axle bracket). Ran all airlines (had to remove spare tire for easy access) to the passengers side frame. Mounted the compressor and control unit to the passenger side frame (Pic Compressor mount) Covered all airlines with 1/2" wire loom to protect the lines. Checked all connections and no leaks. Downloaded Air Command App and tested the system. I have not had any issues pulling my 16,000 lb 5th wheel over the past year.(Pic Truck camper) Overall I am very impressed with the system I installed and the great customer service I received when ordering the product!

Review from a similar Ride-Rite in Vehicle Suspension


Not very happy with the purchase. Packaging was sub par, 28 lbs of steel and airbags dumped into a 12x12x12 box, no packaging material. Airbags had caps over the air inlet, but both caps came off in shipping. Aluminum inserts were MISSING the threaded holes for the alignment studs. Had to drill and tap the 4 inserts (see pictures), thankfully I had a 10-24 tap on hand. Instructions are not clear in terms of 3/8” washer usage, the list of parts at the top of each page shows the incorrect amount of washers vs what is shown in the instructions, as a result not enough washers for the install, one again I had some at home thankfully, finally, the 3/8” bolts are not long enough to go through the lower brackets and provide enough thread engagement for the nylock nuts. There is no bolt stick out after assembly. The air line is very flimsy and is easy to link. Overall the only thing I liked about the kit was the air fill line bracket and the lower clamps that wrap the axle. I would likely go with the airlift product if I could do it again. Hopefully it functions well. Will find out when I put 4000 lbs over the axle.


Comments
Thank you for your review. The instructions say the frame nuts may not have the second hole. You can tape them in place while you secure the upper bracket. The all thread is a temporary use during the installation of the upper bracket and is then removed.

Installed easily, and used them to pull a heavy 24’ trailer across the country with a half ton pickup. The only thing I’d like to see is a manual leveling system with gauges and a compressor on board. I use a hand pump specifically for motorcycle air suspension to make the fine adjustments required to set the pressure. Works well. They did their job perfectly.


Comments
After a year, they are a great aid in hauling a d towing with my half ton. No more sagging rear suspension when loaded. Yes, the rear ride firmed up a little even with only five pounds pressure. That’s a small trade-off.

Product appears to be of very high quality and 1 week after installing, it appears to be working as expected. I was able to install the product myself, but only with the help of a neighbor. The ordering process was great, and thank goodness for the video that was linked to the etrailer site. I wish a few things were better: 1. The optional T connector that combines the two air valves should have been more prominently advertised, because I certainly would have gotten it. As is, it's a bit of a pain to try and inflate both sides separately. 2. Firestone should have labeled ALL the parts that were specific to right or left side of the vehicle. Even with the video, it was frustrating to try and decifer which parts went on which side, and the picture orientation in the installation manual was zero help. 3. There HAS to be a better way to attach the frame bolts. Those bendable tabs and long handles and trying to line them up with the upper bracket were ridiculously tedious and time-consuming, and very nearly resulted in me returning the product. Other than that, I am very happy with the product and the competitive price.


Comments
Continues to perform as expected. Took me several trips with the trailer to arrive at an optimal inflation for highway speeds, so the manufacturer might be advised to provide some guidance.

I mounted the Firestone airbag system on my 2008 Toyota Tacoma pickup. It was not as easy as the video makes it look (especially on the drivers side) but, it it turned out great. I mounted the compressor in the compartment behind the passenger seat behind the driver (see pic). I mounted the gauge and switch in the compartment between the driver and passenger (see pic). The airbag pictures are when they were holding 70 lbs pressure checking for air leaks. The first picture of the pickup is with 5 lbs air pressure in the bags and the second is with 50 lbs air pressure in the bags. When driving with 5 lbs in the bags it has the normal smooth ride and does a good job at 30 lbs of keeping the back end from sagging when I pull my boat.

Outstanding product!!! Well made and easy to install on my 2010 Tundra TRD. Just basic tools needed so anyone can do it!! Take your time and it is a fun 2 hour project. Made towing my trailer so much nicer. Level ride with comfort and good maneuverability. Think I am going to add these to my other GMC work truck as well.

Package came In a timely manner and was packaged very nicely. Just installed tonight on my 2002GMC 2500 HD 8.1L. install took about two hours. Hardest part was getting the old bump stops off the truck. Instructions were easy to follow and understand also included torque specs for each nut. After install was done I aired to 15psi and drove the truck and was not disappointed. Came back to the house and hooked my 8000lb rated trailer up with 7000lb skid loader on it and 30psi in bags the truck was level. Pulled it around town and on highway and drove a pulled great. This is a great product and glad I purchased. I will do a follow up after the winter and let everyone know how they Do in winter w 2500lbs of salt in the bed all winter.

Prompt delivery with good communication as regards order. Installation was straightforward as per instructions although I didn't use the included 3/8" x 5 1/2" carriage bolts for the lower bracket. Purchased 3/8 " x 3" Grade 8 bolts which did not require shortening and were easier to work with for clearance of brake line &etc. Air lines and connections worked great and No Leaks! Currently running 10# pressure but have not tested with a heavy load as of yet. Thanks


Comments
Air bags have performed as designed with no issues for a year. Additional weight handled well and general ride and handling improved. Upgraded to E Series tires and Bilstein shocks and truck works well on and offroad.

Review from a similar Ride-Rite in Vehicle Suspension


The ride improvement is great and the additional bracket PN F5722 was not needed for my 2016 F 250 CCSB diesel because the module in question is behind where the airbag mounts on the frame, see attached pics. I did exhaustive research on whether or not the bracket was needed and could not find a definitive answer. When the box arrived one of the saddle brackets was protruding through the side of the box and the box looked like it had been opened and re-taped. I opened the box and found that the hardware bag was opened so I took inventory of everything and it all appeared to be there going by the list in the installation manual. I have the factory puck system so I did have to notch a small section of the hitch frame to allow for the passenger side upper mount bolt to pass through. When it came time to secure the bags to the upper mounts, the supplied nuts were the wrong thread pitch, I ended up having to source two nuts locally to continue with the installation. Overall the installation was not bad, I removed the spare tire and backed up on a pair of ramps. I have not pulled my 5th wheel since I installed the airbags, I will update the review once I do.

Review from a similar Ride-Rite in Vehicle Suspension


Before I received the kit, I contacted Firestone to make sure I understood any issues with installing this on a Transit. I was told to follow the instructions and if needed to drill any holes. The kit arrived. Many metal parts are thrown loosely without protection into a box. Instructions have errors. Kit says no drill but instructions say some vehicles have to be drilled. If you need to drill prepare for a nightmare. It took me 2 hours to drill the proper holes. The holes should be located lower to prevent damage to vehicle from drill chuck and to allow you to drill a straight hole. Then the washers need to be modified as the hole is too close to a perpendicular surface that prevents the washer from going over the bolt. Bolt that attaches middle bracket rubs on leaf spring. It is quite obvious that no one from Firestone ever used these directions to install this kit on a Transit. There are special tools that are required that are not provided and not identified. For example a drill extension that allows 1/2” bits would prevent damage to the vehicle when drilling. Also a 5/8” bit is required to drill a hole that the instructions state should be 1/2”. The problem is the bolt diameter is 5/8”. It has 1/2” threads but it is a shoulder bolt and the shoulder is larger than the threaded area.

I contacted the manufacturer about this and they are interested to speak to you. I will email you their information.

Review from a similar Ride-Rite in Vehicle Suspension


See Last Review. Both are related. This unit is a good option but I’ve never been able to track down a troublesome air leak that slowly releases the compressed air over fifteen minutes. It’s a very annoying problem. Beyond that the unit was relatively easy to install although I made some specific upgrades to mount the compressor in a manner that leaves the fuel and brake lines in there original position so they didn’t need to be twisted up and out of the way. I used a 4” c-channel to firmly attach and mount the compressor over the undisturbed lines. Works great with less risk. I wish I could find the micro air leak and fix it but am at a loss as to how I might do that. I’d gladly try to spray some kind of stop leak into the air lines if I didn’t think it might screw the whole system up. In the end I’m not sure I would install this system if I had to do it all over again. I may ultimately remove it and reinstall the original rubber stops on the fra I’m since I no longer have my RV trailer anyway.


Comments
You mentioned that you wanted to find the micro leak and I wanted to ask if you had tried the soapy water technique? Where you would spray soapy water onto the lines -being careful of course- and see where bubbles form.

Installed as described in the Video on a f-150 2019 Lariat, max tow package 4x4. I have not loaded up the bed and towed yet so they are set to 5 psi and are riding fine. I have used the ride rites on other trucks and very happy with them. Now note you need to monitor them when not loaded as the should be kept at 5 psi unloaded. I also bought the wheel liners and mud flaps. Wheel liners needed to be cut so they would not run on the air bags.


Comments
Great, I did tow with my TT, truck was almost at max GVWR. Airbags were set to about 50psi to return factory rate. The ride was very good and controlled

Review from a similar Ride-Rite in Vehicle Suspension


Big selling point for this system was “no drill”. Said so on the box. Most definitely HAD to drill… so don’t bank on that truth. Kit works well. Drove 3000+ miles with trailer for two weeks immediately following install. Work AMAZING at stabilizing the Van and improving performance. Helped tremendously. I would highly recommend. Took me about 5 hours to install … removing the old joints bumpers was the hardest part. I have had one of the air fittings fail on me now twice. Have to take stem tool and remover then re-install that stem valve. Seems to solve problem. I am a little worried about the long term performance of that stem. Not sure how to remover the press for hose to replace the part. We will see. Have now driven close to 5k miles on them in 3 1/2 weeks.


Comments
I have contacted Firestone about your situation and they had suggested that it sounds like you are talking about the inflation valves. There certainly is no problem removing and reinstalling the valve core. Is the same as on any tire. Pressing the core should release pressure in the air spring.

Ordered my Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs for my Ram 3500 and put them on myself. Being 71 and laying on the concrete floor I had to take a couple breaks but had them on and leakless in probably 6 hours. Teamed them up with a compressor with a fob and man I feel like a real trucker. Bags have really stabilized my truck when hauling my pickup camper eliminating any roll. Couldn't be happier. Great dealing with etrailer good price and very prompt delivery.

Still working great very valuable hauling our 30ft travel trailer now, I keep a small manual bicycle tire pump in the truck for whenever I need to adjust the pressure anywhere, easy cheap alternative to onboard compressor.

Installed on a 2016 2500 GMC. First and foremost etrailer customer service has been great. Called and asked a few questions and they were able to answer them. Tow a 35ft bumper pull rv quite a bit. Have always had a light front end, primarily due to loading of the trailer and truck bed. Rv stores set you up level, but your empty on both. Loaded it rides different. I adjusted my Husky center line hitch but that didn't help. Tourqed the trailer too much. Install was easy. Have a helper. Watch the video etrailer has provided, they explain the process very well. Bolt everything together, test fit, make your alignment marks then tourqe all the necessary bolts. Pull the spare off and the heat shield. Gives you ample room. All in all easy to install and definatly gets rid of body roll. Will post a follow up after I pull my trailer. Good Luck and enjoy!! Thanks again etrailer

    The 2004 Silverado 2500 LD used the 1500 frame with the 2500 suspension, which is why the # F2250 which is compatible with the HD models won't work for your truck. For the 2500 LD model, you'll need to use the # F2190 Ride Rite kit, which unfortunately would require a total of four 7/16 inch holes be drilled in the truck frame. I've found that instead of beginning with a 7/16 inch drill bit, beginning with a smaller bit like a 3/16 and gradually stepping up in size makes drilling the hole...

  • Better Solution than Air Bags for 2000 Chevy Silverado Towing 30 ft Camper Trailer
    I have a much better solution for you than suspension enhancement for towing your bumper pull travel trailer. What you would want is a weight distribution system instead. A WD system also works to level the suspension of your truck, but since it does this by redistributing some of the tongue weight of the trailer up to the front axle of the tow vehicle you get improved braking and handling. This is especially helpful in emergency situations. While there is some setup time for a WD system...

    For the 1999 1/2 ton GM truck, Air Lift offers the Ride Control Air Helper Springs, part # AL59501. The # F2190 is a fit for 2001-2006 1/2 ton or 1999-2005 3/4 ton trucks, but it will not fit your 1999 1/2 ton model.

  • Will the Firestone Ride Rite Air Bags # 2190 Fit on a 2004 GMC Sierra 1500 4x4 Crew Cab Truck
    The 2004 Chevrolet/GMC 1500 series pickups do not have enough room between the springs and wheel and tire for the Ride-Rite kit, item # F2190. The diameter of the convoluted air bag is too large to fit. The correct kit for your truck is the Air Lift Ride Control, part # AL59501.

  • Recommended Air Spring Kit for 2004 Chevy Silverado 1500
    If your 2004 Chevy Silverado 1500 is the 4WD model, I recommend the Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Air Helper Springs # AL57272. This kit uses custom brackets for a no-drill installation and will provide you with 5,000 pounds of load-leveling capacity. These will do a really nice job of enhancing the rear suspension and reducing rear end sag when hooking up your trailer or loading cargo into the bed. You can manually adjust the air pressures so that you have a level ride regardless of the type...

  • Recommended Airbag Kit for a 2005 Chevy Silverado 1500 HD
    If you are referring to a "heavy half silverado" as being a 2005 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 HD then yes, the Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs part # F2190 will work well for you as long as your truck does not have the quadrasteer feature or an in-bed hitch such as a 5th wheel or gooseneck. If you do have an in-bed hitch then you will want to use the Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Air Helper Springs part # AL57272 as these airbags mount underneath the frame rail and will allow for the use...

  • Firestone Air Bag Helper Springs for a 2007 GMC Sierra Classic 1500 Denali 4x4
    For your 2007 GMC Sierra 1500 Denali 4x4 you can use Firestone Sport-Rite kit # AL59501 if the truck is a light duty. If it is a 1500HD then you can use # F2190. I also recommend a compressor kit # F2158 which will allow you to add or remove air from the air bags from the comfort of your truck cab.

  • Rear Suspension Enhancement Recommendation for 2003 GMC Sierra with Quadrasteer
    I spoke with my contact at Firestone about whether or not the Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs, # F2190, will fit your 2003 GMC Sierra with Quadrasteer. He stated that none of the Ride-Rite kits would work on your specific vehicle. But not to worry, there is another option. I then spoke with my contact at Timbren, another maker of suspension kits. He stated that there was a kit available for your truck. Take a look at Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement System, # TGMFK25S. These are an easy...

  • Suspension Enhancement Recommendation for 2002 Chevy Silverado 1500HD Prevent Chucking
    If you are using air shocks to level your suspension and not additional suspension support I would imagine that is why you are experiencing chucking. The best suspension enhancement kit we have for your 2002 Chevy Silverado 1500HD would be the Roadmaster Active Suspension kit part # RAS54FR which will give you the adjustable support you are wanting, is easily installed, and unlike other options will improve ride quality and stability loaded and unloaded.

  • Recommended Air Helper Spring and Spacer for 2006 Chevy Silverado with 6 Inch Lift
    Rather than the AirLift # AL88275, I'd recommend using the Firestone # F2190. A vehicle with a 6 inch lift would use the # F2374 spacer. AirLift simply uses a band clamp to attach the air spring to the upper and lower mount plates. Firestone uses a much more strong roll crimp arrangement which is much more sturdy and less likely to leak. You might also find having an on-board compressor system like part # F2219 convenient to have. A compressor system would allow you to make adjustments...

  • Recommended Air Ride Suspension Enhancement For A 30' Sure-Trac Gooseneck Trailer
    The Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs # F2190 you referenced are designed to fit specific Chevy/GMC models/years and would not be compatible with your Sure-Trac Trailer. You would instead need a Lippert Center Point system, which would be compatible with a trailer suspension system. If your trailer is tandem axle you'd want the part # LC1565391 or if you have a triple axle part # LC1565401. The goal of these kits is to give you a smoother and overall better ride quality.
