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.

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.

5,000-lb Capacity. Ride-Rite air springs enhance your factory suspension for safety and stability when you are hauling heavy loads. They reduce strain on your rear axle, keep your vehicle level, and adjust to load size for a consistently smooth ride.


The kit I received had mismatched air fittings: one was a 3/8npt elbow instead of the required 1/8npt elbow. etrailer sent a replacement elbow and I was able to source a reducer to complete the install as I await the replacement. Glad i checked my parts before I started.

The install is pretty straight forward and the instructions are clear. The fasteners are difficult to access if you are doing the install by yourself. Must have tools include quality hose cutter and two 1-1/8in sockets.

The bags added 1in of lift to my unladen 2023 Tacoma Trail Edition at 5psi; 1-1/2in at 10psi; and 3in at 70psi.

At the 5psi minimum pressure the ride is firmer than stock. On acceleration the back end no longer “stuffs” wich is fine with me.


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.

Everything is still working great without any leaks. I would highly recommend them for any Tacoma owners.


The OEM air bags on my truck developed a leak and my truck was riding by on the frame. The install was an easy install and my truck had an instant better ride. My truck was level and looked like a truck again.


My Tacoma's rear end would droop with the truck bed packed full of racing gear and the car trailer loaded up in tow. Steering would get very light on hilly roads and the trailer safety chains would drag. As shown in the picture, these air springs easily fixed this undesirable towing condition and she rides level and stable with these air springs at 65 psi.

2019 Toyota Tacoma

After receiving the wrong air fittings, the replacements I received are also wrong. I will be submitting an RMA and sending the kit back.


Shipped missing parts necessary for the install. The air fittings at the top of the bag are the wrong sizes and no 5/8” lock nuts. Derails the entire install process and wasted my day now since no one around me stocks the necessary air fittings.

I’ll adjust the rating here once I get the correct parts with the kit - but you’d think with ALL these reviews mentioning the missing parts would make these folks notice and correct the problem.

Toyota Tacoma

Ride-Rite solved sag problem. When pulling our travel trailer, the Tacoma sagged. The Firestone Ride-Rite has leveled the truck and trailer beautifully. By adjusting the air in the bags, I can fine tune the lift very easily. I am very happy with fit and performance.


I have had the Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs for several months now and haven't any issues. They do a great job in lifting and leveling my truck. Great product!


One of the air line elbows leaked. Had to contact Firestone. They sent me new fittings and air line. Very good customer support from Firestone. I did have to essentially do the installation twice :(
They work great. Essential for a small truck carrying a wide range of loads and/or pulling a trailer.


Fairly easy to install with a second person. A couple bolts were difficult but manageable. Ride is definitely what I was hoping for pulling a camper with a loaded Tacoma!

2022 Toyota Tacoma

I installed these on my 22’ Tacoma as soon as the UPS guy out them in my hands. Install took 3 hours with floor jacks. *photos include Day Star cradles.

2023 Toyota Tacoma

Bought these from etrailer in 2018 for my '12 Tacoma. I liked the bags and etrailer so much that I'm back for a set for my '23 Tacoma.

Install is easy. If you're going to haul or tow anything with a Tacoma these bags are a must.


Unfortunately, I have installed the air bags but are unable to use them as they were provided with the incorrect size air fittings. Therefore, my truck is currently incapacitated waiting for the correct size fittings. I have been advised that the correct fitting kits have been requested, however I was also advised that they are running behind and it may be a few days before they can be shipped. That is not a very encouraging response.


Wrong sized air fitting in hardware bag. Sent 1/4" NPT fitting, should have been 1/8".

Called customer service for etrailer. Quick answer, quick response to the issue. Unfortunately it sounds like the Tacoma kit has had this issue before as customer service rep indicated 3-4 other orders with this same issue. The part is not in stock either so not sure how long a replacement will take to receive.

etrailer did confirm that if I can locate the correct part locally, with proof of receipt, I would be refunded/credited that amount. Frustrating on the manufacturer's behalf, thankful etrailed is honestly and responsive.

If corrected in timely manner will update.

I think the kit will work well once I can actually get it hooked up. Using to improve suspension with truck camper.


easy install, work great for what I nee ded.


The quality of Firestone products are great. These airbags seem well made and the kit is super easy to install.

2017 Toyota Tacoma

Unfortunately my Firestone airbags arrived with the wrong fittings for the airline to airbag connection. I needed to have them installed asap for a road trip the next day. Lots of running around town to find the right parts was what it took to get me on the road the next day. Giving it 3 stars because once set up they do work good


This was obviously a return from a previous customer and looks like they installed and used it prior to returning it.

I am glad our customer service team is sending you a brand new pair. I am sorry you received a used product! It is not our policy to sell used items like new.

Toyota Tacoma

These ride ride airbags are awesome. I had a pair of helper springs from super spring they didn't work for my Tacoma and my four-wheel camper. Highly recommend these airbags. Don't waste your money on helper springs


I guess I shouldn't have ignored the reviews that said their kit didn't come with the right air fittings. This is a pain because you can't really install the fittings while the air bags are on the truck. Instead of spending 2 hours installing the kit I wasted at least this much time running around town trying to find the right fittings.


I haven't installed these quite yet but wanted to drop the torque specs here since they're so hard to find for some reason. I got these specs straight from a Firestone rep. If I can, I'll try to update this review with actual results.


The directions to were easy to follow and all of the parts were there. The hardest part of the install was removing the bump stops. They added a lot of stability to my Toyota Tacoma and made towing my 3300 lb RV alot less nerve wracking. The only downfall is one of my 1/4 quick connect fittings leaks. I need to order a new one, it's the one that goes on top of the airbag.

Bob E.


Bartholomew, check the air hose end that goes into the leaking fitting. We run into this once in a while where a short section of the hose has a scratch from routhing the line and that causes a leak. Cut the line back a bit where the out side of it is not scratched and the leak is usually fixed. Also being sure to make cut square to the line and making the bend in the line near the fitting as relaxed as possible helps.


They are not a cure-all; but do help when hauling heavy loads, or towing a travel trailer with my 2019 Toyota Tacoma TRD Off-Road Pick-up.

Working fine after a year. Had a problem with leaks and pressure drop at first. Had to cut and re-install air lines and connectors at the airbag end, several times. But eventually got them to hold pressure. Now only slight air loss over several days.

They really helped to prevent sagging rear end, and minimize bucking when towing a small travel trailer with my Toyota Tacoma.

I still finally had to go with a load distribution hitch with anti-sway device to completely minimize sway while towing.


The product is great but who ever is in charge of making sure all the small parts are in the bag dropped the ball on this one I didn't have the 90° air fittings for the top of the bag had to make an extra trip to pick some up not a huge deal still got everything hooked up an they are great improvement thanks for the ease of fitting this together


Came a day early. Everything checked out in package perfectly!

  • Do Firestone Ride Rite Suspension Kits Lift Suspension of Vehicle
    If you are looking for a suspension lift for your truck we don't have anything that will work for you. The suspension enhancement kits we offer like the Firestone kit part # F2407 are designed to support the rear suspension of a truck that is hauling the weight of cargo or towing and because of that it's sagging.

  • Did Lower Bracket of Firestone Ride Rite for 2016 Toyota Tacoma Change
    It does look like the lower bracket of the Firestone Ride Rite kit part # F2407 has changed. The current design does not have a portion of the bracket that bends down and sets on top of the axle for additional support. I understand your concern but if you install everything properly and torque down the install hardware you aren't going to see any issues with the hardware backing off or coming loose.

  • Recommended psi for Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs on a 2000 Coachman Catalina Towing a Minivan
    The Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs from Firestone should always have at least 5 psi in them for a longer lifespan, but besides that it is totally up to the customer and what setting they feel is the best for their setup. You will just need to make sure that you do not overinflate them. We do not have any confirmed fits for the Ride-Rite system on your 2000 Coachman Catalina, but most of the systems that we have for passenger vehicles have a range of 5 psi - 100 psi.

  • Did Bottom Bracket of Firestone Kit 2407 Change
    First, thanks so much for your purchase from etrailer of the Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs # F2407. I believe I see what you are saying and this did have a bottom bracket at one point, but that has changed. The plate the air bag rests on now bolts to two bracket straps and not one bracket. So you do have the right kit.

  • Can an Air Bag Kit Replace a Weight Distribution System When Towing a Trailer
    For your 2012 Toyota Tacoma the # F2407 has been confirmed as a fit and will take out the rear suspension sag you are experiencing when towing your trailer. A weight distribution system like what you have will be the absolute best solution for towing a trailer because it reduces sag by moving some of the tongue weight of the trailer up to the front axle of the tow vehicle. This greatly helps with braking and handling (especially in an emergency) unlike a suspension enhancement setup that...

  • Best Rear Air Bags for my 2019 Toyota Tacoma
    I have a great solution for you! I really like the Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs that you looked at they are by far the best bags for the money. The major reason is the way the air bags are connected to the caps on the end Firestone uses a rolled crimp so unlike other options for your Tacoma you can actually lift the truck in the air for maintenance where as with the others it is not recommended. You will have to take a quick look at the rear suspension to pick the right ones....

  • Recommended Firestone Air Spring Kit For a 2020 Toyota Tacoma With the Leaf Springs Over the Axle
    The Firestone # F2410 will fit the leaf under axle style set up for the 2020 Toyota Tacoma. For the leaf over axle style set up, you will need the Firestone # F2407. Though they are very similar, the brackets are different to accommodate this distinction. I have included an install video of these being installed for you to take a look at as well.

    Yes, the Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs part # F2407 will work on a 2017 Toyota Tacoma so long as the axle is below the leaf springs. That said, you'd also need the Firestone Axle Bracket Extension Kit for Lifted Vehicles part # F2506 to compensate for the added lift.

  • Suspension Enhancement Recommendation for a 2007 Toyota Tacoma PreRunner
    Since the load in trailer and bed of your 2007 Toyota Tacoma will sometimes be different I would recommend an air kit that allows you to adjust the amount of suspension support you have. The Firestone kit part # F2407 would be your best option. This will allow you to fine tune the amount of suspension support you need. For a compressor kit to make maintaining the pressure in the bags easy you would then also want the part # F2158.

The Ride-Rite air bags can be adjusted individually from 5 psi to 100 psi so you can set them differently when you are towing or not towing, and have a 5,000 lb load-leveling capacity.

  • Where are The Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs # F2407 Made? I also noticed
    The Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs # F2407 are made in the USA. The Air Spring # F6766 is the only size which will fit on the Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs # F2407. This kit uses the 5,000lb capacity springs as they are for use on a Toyota Tacoma. The mounts on these smaller springs are different from the heavy duty air bags they use on larger trucks.

With a loaded trailer weight of 4,000lbs this will give you a tongue weight range of 400-800lbs.
