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

Firestone Ride-Rite air spring airline installation

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.



Air Spring Construction

Firestone Ride-Ride air spring components

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

F2430 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.

Great product well packed no damage and easy installation. Around two hours without impact wrench. Would recommend impact wrench. Differently would recommend to anyone who hauls heavy loads or trailers. Keeps truck level. Also and maybe must important Emily my customer service representative was very helpful, friendly, and great to work with very professional. Thank you for all your help. Have a great day and be safe. . 773364

Very good fitment, so you do get what you pay the premium for. My only concern is some sort of regulator would go a long way to getting the pressure equalized between the bags. This is not something I expected, but will probably add later to enhance the ease of use and warranted that fifth star. Highly recommend as advertised regardless! 635267

Opened the box and in awe, I called my service guy, but he couldn't get to it for a week, so I started in. Rolled my truck up on some blocks. Removing the stock rubber bumper was easy. Then the installation. Bolting the upper housing onto the frame was the first job and was easy, except I forgot to include the spacer. So two steps later I had to unbolt it , insert the spacer and re tighten it. The rest of it went well and is now ready for the air line. Quit for the day and this morning will install the other side, which should go much easier now that I have learned from the first side. So it looks hopeful that even I can accomplish this. As a 75 year old retired surgeon that is saying a lot! Stay tuned for next installment which should review performance. 483120

2008 Chevy 1500. Using to assist with hauling travel trailer. Product shipped quickly and arrived on time. Poorly written instructions but easily installed once I was able to sort out the installation process. Very heavy duty material. Vehicle drove great after installation. Cant wait to put it to the test with a load. Note that the reference pictures on the website are of an older design. The mounting brackets have been redesigned and probably easier installation now. 141466

I don't typically do reviews but I was so excited about these I just had to share. installation was fine, it took me about 2 hours. Watch the installation videos, it helps. I thought I needed a 3/4 ton truck just to put some heavy loads in my bed a few times a year, but not anymore! See the picture I loaded. that is my Silverado 1500 with approximately 1,500lbs in the back (there are a bunch of concrete curbs in the back). Can you tell, I can't. That's with only 30lbs of air in the springs. I have used air shocks in the past but forget that, no comparison. I will say I did not get the series to fill itself which I will probably upgrade to soon, but for now, these are exceeding my expectations. 603952

Really great product and does exactly what it is supposed to do! I really dread doing projects like this sometimes because of the so-so directions, but the directions for this kit were the best I have seen. You can tell somebody actually took the time to do it right! My 740 lb cruiser in the back of my truck used to push the bed down a couple of inches. Not anymore! 399032

So far, I would give this product a 5 star rating. I must say, the installation directions from Firestone are a bit lacking. However, the installation video from etrailer made the installation a snap. I completed the installation in about 3 hours. I'm confident these Ride Rite bags will improve my hauling and towing performance when I go on long fishing trips fully loaded with gear and pulling my 19 foot boat. Also, etrailer was as good as their word when I asked them to honor their price pledge. 505966

The airbags installed very easy. It took us about two and half hours to get the job done, and that’s after getting ahead of ourselves a couple times and having to redo some steps. It makes the vehicle ride great and I can’t wait Took my trailer up to it and see how it tows. 544910

Quickly arrived and pretty easy to install. I filled to approx 20psi just as a daily driver but already can tell a big difference in the overall handling of the truck. The rear end feels stabilizes quickly when hitting bumps and the body rill is greatly reduced.I have yet to try them with a heavy load but I have no doubt they will perform great. 2008 GMC Sierra 1500. 517454

Still a great product a year later. I have pulled heavier trailers across the country,used it for my 30ft travel trailer. Alls i need to do is adjust the pressure to my desired settings and the truck rides smoothly down the highway nice and level. Highly recommended product. Product is holding up well.

this is a nice kit and good quality. As soon as I figured out how to remove the bump stop it was a piece of cake to install. I have not hooked up my boat yet but I am sure it will work as expected.

This was way easier to install that I was imagining. Watch the installation video and you'll have no problems. I didn't drop the spare or even jack up the truck at all. All of the parts and hardware are of great quality. Nothing cheap or flimsy. I ended up mounting the air valves inside the bed by fishing the hose up the bed stake and using the factory holes in the bedside. It took me about two hours to install on my 2012 GMC Sierra 1500 All Terrain Extended Cab. 5 Stars all the way. 805418

I would buy another set of Firestone air bags and air pump in the future when needed .

This airbag set was installed on my 16' Silverado shortly after receiving it, almost a year ago. My wife and I pull an 8000lb toy hauler camper with our truck and the Firestone airbags are a must have. Our truck handles so much better when pulling and I have had complete strangers stop and ask me why there's no "sag" in our truck when the camper is hooked up. I recommend these airbags to all my friends that pull trailers. They also remove a great deal of body roll when our truck is not loaded. 774767

  • Does Firestone Ride-Rite Air Bag Kit # 2430 Use J-Hooks or U-Bolts to Install
