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.

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.

It is designed to fit the 2003 to 2013 Dodge Ram and Ram 1500, 2500 and 3500 trucks. Now, on a custom fit part, I always like to recommend for you to go to our website, use our fit guide, put in your year and model vehicle, and it'll show you if this part will work for your application. Now, these air springs are maximized safe load carrying capacity, increased stability, and improve your ride quality. These are designed to be installed between your vehicle's frame and its rear suspension. These will help keep your vehicle level when you're hauling a heavy load, improves the steering control an the braking when you're hauling or towing, this will help level your headlight beams, and it'll even reduce tire wear. These will maintain even load distribution with air pressure, leveling off center loads. These air bags will adjust manually inside the side with individual inflation valves.

These will help reduce strain on your rear suspension. Prevents permanent sagging and excessive friction in these springs. They will increase stability. Helps absorb road shock for a nice smooth ride and they will soften the contact between your axle and your frame to prevent bottoming out. These will also provide maximum load support and durability with rubber construction and it has a double convoluted design. Now, this part will include everything laid out here on the table.

They're available for a quick, easy air spring inflation and deflation from inside your vehicle and those items are all sold separately on our website. This part is made in the USA. A few specs on this. The load leveling capacity is 5,000 pounds.

Now, the Ride-Rite springs will not increase your vehicle's weight carrying capacity, so you do want to make sure you do not exceed the manufacturer's recommended weight limit. Also, the air pressure in these are adjustable from 5 PSI to 100 PSI. Well, that should do it for the review on the Firestone Double Convoluted Ride-Rite Air Helper springs for the rear axle.

I purchased a Ride Rite kit for my 06 Ram. This is my third kit for my trucks. I haul scrap and routinely gross 30K. I need quality running gear. etrailer provided what I needed at a great price and fast. I also needed a replacement air bag for my 2012 Ram. I found it cheaper from a competitor. Rather than order it from that vendor I gave etrailer the info and they matched the price plus a little extra. This is where I shop, and so should you. 551930

Last year I bought a f2299 air bag kit. With no mechanical skill and some common sense I had these installed (3hrs max.) into a Dodge 3500 to pull our 41ft 5th wheel camper. Took it to Fl. from Ks and forgot I had it along. Just bought my second pair, f2071 for my old '98. AWESOME product! holds air indefinitely. 241426

The product engineering is great, everything fit perfectly! It was easy to install especially after watching the video on etrailer.com, I hardly had to look at the printed instructions. So far the noise level when unloaded has decreased significantly, and when loaded with a 10k fifth wheel, it has smoothed out the constant push/pull bounce I usually got from the stiff springs. I should note that I have a 2004 Dodge 3500 and I took my factory overload springs off and used this kit to replace it. The factory overload springs would "slap" on the upper supports at times and that is the noise that was eliminated. Now the extra load is on the air bags and that has smoothed out the loaded ride. I only have to run 10 lbs. of air level the truck with the 1300 lb. pin weight. etrailer.com is a good company to purchase this product from, while I didn't need to call customer support, the shipping was super quick even when I ordered on the holiday weekend!

I have purchased several items from etrailer and always impressed with their accuracy and speed of delivery. They have high shipping costs to Alaska so have not been able to use them except when in the lower 48. Installed on a 1-ton Dodge dually used to either carry a 4600 lb truck camper, pull a 11000 pound fifth wheel or tow a 10000 trailer. The truck camper really sat the truck on the axle and the recently installed Timbrens made matters even worse. When I hit a dip or bump it sounded like there were no springs what so ever. Installed the air springs and now I get a much improved ride and have not bottomed out to date. I installed the air springs in Oregon and drove to Homer Alaska over some pretty rough roads. Great ride!!! 88865


Comments

I still have the highest opinion of the air shocks! Been many miles and always loaded. Not one time have I had to add air and perform the same as they did when I first put them on. These shocks really tamed the load. Would not own a large truck camper without them.

Installation was simple. Product performance is excellent. Instructions and video es very simple to follow. I also ordered the air line "T" so I only have one line at the back to air up the bags. Put 45#s of air in the bags then loaded a round bale of hay on, see pics 229764

These were installed on a 2012 Dodge 3500 DRW Crew Cab Laramie 4x4 with the 6.7 turbo diesel. I received my air shocks as expected. Very happy with that. Installation was easy and pretty straight forward. I only had two issues with the install. The first was installing both upper brackets after the axle bumpers are removed. This is a metric bolt, 10mm x 1.5p and somehow, I managed to cross thread all four of them. The first two bolts, drivers side, I did get in but the passenger side required the use of a tap and die to fix the threads on the bolt and to chase the threads on the mounting point. The second issue was both air lines leaked where the air line fitting screwed into the top of the air bag. I couldn't tighten them down enough to get them to stop leaking (the loctite that comes on these fittings just wasn't doing the trick) but a little bit of white teflon tape sealed them up tight. Overall, I'm very happy with how easy they were to install. Now, to hook up my 5er and take it for a spin. 237391

These air bags are a must for carrying a load to make your truck handle better. Empty, I run at 5 lbs and only change I notice is the truck rides about a inch higher. The install went real smooth with the directions easy to under stand. Shipping was very fast and communication to let me know how and when the package was to arrive. 104545

05 Dodge 3/4 ton. Makes a big difference in handling with a camper. I run 5 lbs when unloaded and 15 lbs to haul a ton of pellets for the stove. No sag what so ever.

This was a fantastic addition to my 2010 Dodge Ram 3500 Mega Cab 4x4. It has allowed me to raise/lower my truck while hauling, increased my bed load and pin weight while pulling 5th wheel and gooseneck trailer, and has eliminated sway while pulling a trailer with my weight distribution hitch. This has overall increased my drive stability and safe hauling capacity. Was a much a better buy and better decision in my mind then adding extra "helper" leaf springs which would have changed my ride permanently and would not have given me the flexibility to change back to a regular setup when not hauling or towing. With these you can go as low as 10lbs or as much as 100lbs of psi, thus giving you a lot more of different options than a fixed helper-leaf spring would....without the stiffer ride when not hauling or towing anything. 413512


Comments

Thanks for the follow up David. I would like to caution you that this air bag kit is not intended to increase the hauling capacity of your truck. Please make sure that you are within the towing capacities of your truck.

Install was about an hour. 15 minutes putting stuff together on the bench and 30 min under truck installing. Another 15 min to tidy up afterwards. Installed on a 2009 Dodge 3/4 ton 4x4 megacab. I pull a jeep and all my stuff usually but finally bought a truck camper. It and all my stuff was lowering my bed 3-4" at the hitch. I've already got a 2" leveling kit so the load really made it look heavy but I am loaded to within legal tolerances. The air raised it right up to level. Really rides nice and my headlights aren't pointed to the sky. 273022

Weve made multiple trips with my rear axle carrying a considerable load. The air bags work great and Id highly recommend them to anybody.

Once you find the correct air pressure for your application, smooth sailing. This was my first set and I took the time for a couple of test runs before making a long trip with the 5er. Glad I did, when they were over or under inflated, it was easy to pull over, make an adjustment and try again. Made a long trip much more comfortable with these in place. Easy to install and glad I made the purchase. 351426

I have not installed this air bag system yet.. I am commenting on the fast shipping.. I am disappointed that I was not supplied a tracking number though so I knew when the package would arrive.. I had to have a neighbor take the package off my porch cuz I could not be home when it arrived.. I have had nothing but good products come from etrailer.. R.B. Barnby 596295

On time shipment in perfect condition as expected with etrailer. The unit installed in 1.5 hours with very basic hand tools. If you have a lift you could do it in under an hour by cutting down on the time crawling in and out from under the truck. I have experimented with it and it works great, needs 65psi to bring my 2011 Ram 2500 Diesel with my 14,000lb 5th wheel hooked up back up to the same fender height as when unloaded. If you watch the etrailer installation video you will only need to briefly reference the instructions during your installation. Hope it lasts for many years!! 664456

Installed in less than two hours. Fairly simple to install. Took some extra time to route the airlines the way I like them to be. I recommend a dry build off the truck prior to tightening anything down. Orientation of the airbags is critical so don’t tighten the bottom bolt going into the base of the airbags until you are certain of airbags orientation. You may not be able to tighten once installed due to brake lines or other hardware depending on model truck. I have a 2500 Ram diesel 4x4. This is in the instructions but my orientation was off just a hair on driver side so I had to remove and get it perfect. Just a minor problem which I solved in 5 minutes. Leak and OPs check good to go. 645080

Install took 2 hrs total working from a creeper, it would of went much faster if my truck was on an overhead lift. Only specialty tool required was an alan head on a 1/2" drive to install upper mounting bracket, highly suggest you acquire one prior to getting started, it will save time and frustration. I have used Firestone suspension in the past and was pleased. I have no doubts I will be pleased with this setup as well. I installed this on a 3500 Ram 4x4 dually that I pull heavy equipment (16,000lbs plus trailer) and the factory overloads were getting a work out. I will update this review after having a chance to put it to the test. 621606

I received the Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs - Double Convoluted - Rear Axle - F2299 model air springs in 3 business days as advertised by etrailer. Installation was a breeze in an hour and half on my 2004 Dodge Ram 2500 Quad Cab Heavy Duty Laramie SLT short bed with a 5.9 Cummins diesel. I used the Firestone Union Tee for 1/4 inch tubing F3025-1 and a single Schrader valve to air both air springs. The truck didn't ride hard or bounce at all without my 5th wheel hitched up or going over speed bumps. I have yet to hitch my 5th wheel up and see how they perform with an 1800 pound pin weight. My truck should level out now. I will update this review when I do. So far so good. 614263

Instructions were in English and easy to follow. Have used the system several times now and it definetley keeps the rear end up and the front end down.

I installed these air helper springs on my 2005 Dodge Ram 3500. I found the instructions were done well and easy to follow. I am not a mechanic but I am fairly handy. I did this by myself except for an elderly friend handing me tools and had very little trouble which was mostly due to the fact I was on my back in the driveway. The most helpful tool was the instillation video provided by etrailer. The video was very well done and a great help. I pull a 35' 5th wheel trailer and these air springs helped take the load off the factory springs. I would recommend these to anyone who pulls a heavy load. 353881

Pull a trailer and this system helps to stabilize the load. During non pulling times can reduce airbag pressure for a softer ride. Relatively easy to install and the finished product looks like it belongs on the truck. 335577

Do you have a question about this Vehicle Suspension?


  • Can Firestone Airbags and TorkLift StableLoads Be Used Together on a 2013 Ram 2500
  • Yes, the Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs part # F2299 will work with the TorkLift StableLoad Rear Suspension Upgrade part # TLA7311 and or part # TLA7200 that you already have installed on your 2013 Ram 2500. It may also very well eliminate the need for them entirely because airbags in my opinion are the best suspension enhancement system on the market but they can still be used together if you wish. The ride however may be a tad bit less comfortable which is why I recommend you...

Anywhere from 1 to 3 inches in front is best and what is done for the custom bracket kits where available. The system will ideally be flush with the top of the frame so the gooseneck ring holding the ball will actually sit just slightly above the rails (to protrude above...

  • Bracket Kit to Fit Firestone Air Bag Kit on 2011 Ram 3500
  • For the upper brackets you'd need part # F5757 and # F5758. Then for the lower bracket you'd need the part # F5370. If you need the axle clamp you'd then also want the part # F5181. These are the brackets for the Firestone # F2299 which is a fit for your 2011 Ram 3500.

  • Firestone Air Bag Suspension Kit Recommendation for 2005 Dodge Ram 2500
  • You have the correct air bag from Firestone for what's recommended for your 2005 Dodge Ram 2500 as part # F6401 which is part of the kit part # F2299 that is the correct kit. For the upper bracket you'd need part # F5757 that you referenced and for a brace part # F5758. For the lower bracket you'd need the part # F5370. Only problem is Firestone does not offer the u-bolts as replacement parts so your best option would be an entire new kit part # F2299.

  • Replacement Parts for Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs on a 2006 Dodge Ram 3500
  • I assume you have either the Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs part # F2299 or the Firestone Ride-Rite Red Label Extreme Duty Air Helper Springs part # F2701 on your 2006 Dodge Ram 3500. If that is the case then you will want to use the Replacement Bail Clamp part # F3292 and the Replacement Axle Clamp part # F5181 in order to secure the lower bracket to the axle. You will also need two 3/8"-16 locking flange nuts which can be obtained from your local hardware store. The 3/8"-16 X...

  • Gooseneck Hitch and Air Helper Springs Recommendations for a 2004 Dodge Ram 2500
  • I have a Curt gooseneck hitch that will work with the Firestone Ride-Rite Air Springs, # F2299, on your 2004 Dodge Ram 2500, but the Curt installation kit, # C60661, will not fit on your truck. This kit was designed for 2011 and newer Ram trucks. For your truck, I recommend looking at the Curt EZr Double Lock Gooseneck Hitch, part # C60682, because the custom frame brackets mount on the outside of your frame, away from the frame bracket for the Firestone kit. Since this hitch uses custom...

  • Air Bag Suspension Enhancement Recommendation for 2006 Dodge Ram with 5th Wheel Rails
  • Firestone makes an air bag kit that is a fit for your 2006 Dodge Ram that is compatible with in-bed fifth wheel hitches like you have as part # F2299 but the Air Lift kit part # AL88297 that you referenced is not confirmed to be 5th wheel rail kit compatible so I would not recommend it. I attached an install video for the Firestone kit on a similar 2006 Dodge Ram similar to yours for you to check out as well.

  • Comparing Firestones Air-Rite Helper Springs with Red Label Extreme Duty Springs on 2012 Ram 2500
  • The difference in Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs # F2299 and Firestone Red Label Extreme Duty Air Helper Springs # F2701 is in capacity, not in design as you pointed out. The # F2299 air springs have a 5,000 lbs capacity with a double convoluted 4 ply design. The air can be adjusted between 5 psi and 100 psi. The extreme duty air springs have a 7,500 lbs capacity and also have the 4 ply double convoluted design but the air adjustment can be from 5 psi to 150 psi. The extreme...

  • Lift Spacers for Firestone Air Bags on a 2007 Dodge Ram 2500 with 6 Inch Lift
  • That's a good looking truck! To determine which lift spacers you will need for Firestone air bags # F2299 or # F2701 for your 2007 Dodge Ram 2500 there is a measurement needed. A 6 inch lift may not increase the distance between the frame and axle by 6 inches. But if it has then you would need 6 inch lift spacers # F2375. These spacers were designed for vehicles with a 6 inch lift AND from 11.5 inches to 12.5 inches between the upper and lower air bag mounting brackets. Otherwise...

  • Replacement Parts for Firestone Air Springs on 2009 Dodge Ram 3500 4x4
  • I reached out to my tech contact at Firestone and they cannot confirm a fit between that bracket kit and that air bag. I did a little further research and the Ride-Rite # F2299 is the complete kit that is a confirmed fit for your 2009 Ram 3500 4x4. It uses the # F6401 air spring, but bracket # F5757, # F5370, and # F5758. The f2479 bracket kit you mentioned has been discontinued and most likely why my tech contact couldn't confirm a fit, but consists of those same three brackets....

  • On-Board Compressor Recommendation for use with Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs
  • There are several options for an on-board compressor for your Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs # F2299. Since you tow your gooseneck every day, I suggest using a heavy-duty compressor. If you would like to be able to level the air springs individually, I recommend the Firestone Dual Air Command II # F2168. This kit comes with a pneumatic control that mounts in the cab, a super-heavy-duty compressor, and a 1/2 gallon air tank. The air tank helps to inflate the air springs faster....

  • Firestone Air Bag Helper Springs for a 2015 Ram 2500 4x4 Diesel
  • The Firestone Ride Rite kit for the 2006 Dodge Ram 2500 4x4 is # F2299. This kit is not a fit for the 2015 Ram 2500 4x4. Instead you would use kit # F2598 for the 2015. The springs themselves and most of the other components are different for each truck. If the 2006 Ram also had a Level Command kit with the onboard compressor and its components they you could use it on the 2015, but the 2015 does require a different Ride Rite kit.
