Firestone Sport-Rite Air Spring Basics

Firestone Sport-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.

Adjustable Air Pressure

The air pressure in your Sport-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.

Air Spring Construction

Firestone's tapered-sleeve Sport-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. 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 Sport-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.

I purchased a firestone F2320 kit with the air command I kit. When I did so they asked for completed pictures of the install. I have some low resolution shots here, should you want higher resolution or any other images, please let me know and i will send over whatever you need. Unloaded… the kit gave me 3" more height at 80psi.


Comments
The product has been great. I never realized how bad the handling was prior to adding the bags. My vehicle was suffering from suspension fatigue prior to installation... now, the vehicle, dare I say, rides better than stock.

Hardware package had been opened luckily it was complete just scattered all over the box. paint peeling off of lower brackets in the box. Installation took approximately 6 hours. Instructions are somewhat ambiguous. Shipping was not exactly what I would call fast. Overall I'm slightly disappointed. This is not what I've come to expect from etrailer.

I will have our Customer Service team reach out to you.

Excellent product! I put these on my 03’ f150 to help with the suspension while pulling my 34’ camper. I also use a weight distribution hitch and the combination of the two allows the half ton pick up to pull it down the road with ease. These air springs help not only with the ride comfort but also in leveling the camper with the truck.




by:

Overall, a well designed kit. The instruction package is reasonably clear to those with mechanical aptitude. There is a typo that reads "reward" where it should say "rearward", but there are no real proofreaders anymore, just spellcheck. As a driveway project, plan on taking a full day to complete the basic installation. If you are opting for the onboard compressor add on kit (F2610), plan on two days to get all of the components properly installed and tested. Now for the real test, take the loaded trailer for a trip!


Comments
One complaint that has been noted by others is poor connectivity between app and controller. I have discovered that by starting the app before entering and starting the truck, I get a connection reliably. As to performance, I have made several trips with the system installed. I am still learning how to best adjust it according to load for best travel. I just wish my mileage did not tank while towing, but that is another story.

I have had this same product on my 1999 F150 4X4 for 14 years. It was installed when I bought my Lance lite 815 Camper to shift some of the weight onto the forward axles. I just put on replacement bags due to dry rot and the fact that I've gotten 3 life times out of one set of bags. My father drives truck and its policy there at the truck company to replace the bags every 5 to 7 years.
Long story short "Firestone Makes a Awesome quality Product".
I recommend it, stand by it, and won't use any other Brand.


Comments
The air bags have been on for almost a year. They are working great. replaced the old valves which had a slow leak. Like I said before, Firestone Makes a Awesome quality Product. I recommend it, stand by it, and wont use any other Brand.

2010 Ford F-150

This review is for the firestone air springs kit # 2320. It was installed on a 2003 Ford F-150 supercrew 4x4. I ordered this back in January but it has been too cold to install. The shipping was quick and everything was packed well with no issues. Now that the weather has warmed up a little I went ahead and installed the springs on the truck. First thing is the same issue another person had, the instructions were for a GMC/Chevy only. Ford has brake and fuel lines in the way and this caused an issue when I just tried a trial run on the mounting. I contacted etrailer when the link was broken to the instructions and went to Firestone for the entire set. There is a mounting bracket in the kit for repositioning the brake line mount on the frame so the air springs can be attached and once I had the instruction to see how it mounted I went ahead and installed them. Just some advice, if you have an older truck in an area were rust is a problem the driverside bag requires repositioning the brake line for the rear brakes away from the frame rail by an inch. There are fuel lines in there along with the brakes so I also had to bend the brake lines a little to get around the rubber and metal fuel lines so they don’t vibrate together and wear a hole. If you have a truck with a lot of rust you could really have issues trying to do this and really make a mess. The installation took about 3 hours and 2 ½ was on the driverside. The passenger side does not have anything inside the frame rail so it was only 30 minutes there. I have used them on both my carhauler and my camper now just to set air pressure so the truck sits properly and they worked fine. The one thing I see is that they drop 5 to 10 psi after I disconnect the air source. I checked with soap and do not have any leaks and they do not continue to drop only when I disconnect. I did not see anybody else report this but now I just adjust them a little high at first and they drop to where I want them and stay there.

Ford F-150

Purchased these air helper springs to give my F150 a little backbone when pulling a trailer. They installed easily and I have used them once and they did a great job. The difficulty that I encountered was the instruction sheets for installation were missing half the pages and as fate would have it I was sent the GM pages with the Ford kit. Some of the hardware was missing and the stand off bracket was drilled the mirror image of what it needed to be. So I had to download the pdf file for instructions, needed to know the critical X distance, and made a trip to my drill press where I modified the bracket, rounded up some hardware (washers) and proceeded to mount the air springs. Looks good (have to take into account the brackets are universal, so they are a little sloppy fitting) and works good. I'm quite familiar with air suspensions used on big rigs so it really was a walk in the park.

2006 GMC Sierra

One year later the sport-rite kit has been a true game changer in towing. Installation was really straight forward took about 1.5 hours in the garage to everything installed. Prior to installing the kit I had a lot of "floating" when towing my jeep behind the truck. Post installation I run the bags at about 40-45lbs of air and I don't even feel the. trailer/jeep when towing. For anyone looking to firm up your tow rig I would highly recommend this kit. For the price you can't beat the value.

Installs quickly. Etrailer staff was very fast in providing additional information for my specific install. Looking forward to the first haul.


Comments
These are a beast on my 2001 Chevy Silverado 1500 Extended Cab. First trip was 3500 mile trip from CA to VA and down to NC. Performed flawlessly with a 10,000lb load in 20 ft trailer, which I took northern route through WY and UT. Took time to ensure air lines were mounted properly but havent had an issue with bleeding since installation was complete. I have used numerous times since trip to haul 1.5 to 2 tons of 57 gravel rock each time. No suspension issues with smooth ride. Product performed above my expectations.

This is a replacement system for another Firestone airbag. The original came out of position and rubbed a hole through the boot. So far the changes seem to be great. No product is great after the first iteration. This one seems to be finely tuned. It is just great to have the sway controlled with airbags.

Exactly what I needed to pull my camper. Good instructions . I lovethe online video. Took about 4 hrs to install. Thanks

2001 Chevrolet Silverado

I had been using the Timbren SES which was great handling the tongue weight of my trailer but didn't leave much suspension travel unloaded. It was quite jarring traveling over dips in the road when the 1" of travel got used up and the Timbrens kicked in. It is so much smoother driving over the same road since I installed the Sport-Rites. Unloaded I keep them at the minimum 10 PSI and my truck rides like stock. Installation was straight forward especially after watching the etrailer video but it still took me an afternoon.




by:
2005 Chevrolet Silverado

Product is fairly easy to install although time consuming. But that was due to some unforseen issues with my bump stop hardware being very rusty on my Silverado. I did get a chance to tow my travel trailer and wow what a difference. I put 40 lbs of air in the bags, less than half of what they are rated for and it held my 25 ft travel trailer perfectly level while maintaining a very nice ride in the truck. I would definetly buy them again. I also like the quick shipping. A great product that is well worth the money

Thank You

Works great!
A little intimidating to
drill into the truck frame but once committed the job goes fast.





by:

I installed these today. My truck is a little older and the stock rear springs are a little tired. I needed something that would help me support the tongue weight of my 2 horse bumper pull trailer a bit better. I ordered these and they showed up just a few days later. Finally had a chance to install them today. It took me about 1.5 hours and the only snag I had was when I snapped a drill bit. I aired up to 30 pounds and took it for a drive. Tomorrow I'll put the trailer on it and air it up some more but they have been great so far.




by:
2005 Chevrolet Silverado

Just installed this morning and it was pretty straight forward. Just take a few measurements to make sure everything is where it should be and its that simple. Hooked up trailer and aired the bags up and it looks like the trailer weighs 200 lbs. The trailer is about 900 lbs tounge weight and it barely moves the truck! Alot better than other things ive seen

Everything looks good so far, I have not installed the system as of yet. Hopefully this weekend.

  • How Much Travel Does the Firestone Sport-Rite Air Helper Springs Provide On a 2009 Chevy Silverado
    The Firestone Sport-Rite Air Helper Springs part # F2320 comes with tapered sleeve airbags which have a compressed height of 6-1/4" and an extended height of 10-1/4" therefore you will have around 4" of travel.

  • Replacement Firestone Air Spring on 2000 Ford F-150
    The Firestone Rear Air Spring # F9000 that you referenced is the correct replacement air spring for the Firestone Sport-Rite System on your 2000 Ford F-150, which is the part # F2320. This should be a direct replacement to what you already have so there won't be any issues with spacing or clearance. The air spring just needs to have between 7-1/4" and 9" of space between the upper and lower brackets for ideal performance.

    If your 2003 GMC Sierra 1500 is an LD model (there's no "HD" behind the 1500 on the truck emblems) then the only Firestone option is the part # F2320 that you referenced. If instead you have an HD model you'd be able to use the Ride Rite kit part # F2190. The Sport Rite kit is not as robust as the Ride Rite kit but it's designed to be appropriately rated for the truck it's installed on.

Keep in mind that suspension enhancement is designed to support your suspension, and will not increase the payload or towing capacities of your vehicle.
