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.

I have used these air bags on other trucks and they make a big difference when towing. No more bottoming out the suspension and the trailer doesn’t even feel like it is back there. I put these on a 2019 ram 3500 single rear wheel cab and chassis. You do have to drill 4 holes in the frame for each side and there are brake and fuel lines on the drivers side. It took me a half a day to install and I have a decent shop with a lift. There was nothing hard, it just took time to get things out of the way and drill the holes. I did cut 2x4s and jig up the brackets to help install.

Nice kit! Install was straight forward on my 2020 Ram 3500 Cab and Chassis utility body truck. Good bag clearance even with oversized tires. Only thing to be aware of is you will have to flip one of the lower brackets under the leaf spring up front to have enough thread on the supplied carriage bolt if using with factory overload leafs.

Review from a similar Ride-Rite in Vehicle Suspension


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.


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

I just received my Firestone Ride-Rite air bags along with the Air-Rite compressor system. William helped me to order the correct parts for my application. I’m excited to get started!

Review from a similar Ride-Rite in Vehicle Suspension


So the bags were only on the truck for a few months before the brackets started bending. Had to take them off a couple of times to straighten out the metal but they didn’t stay true for very long. When the system was new it worked beautifully, improved the handling of the vehicle and got better gas mileage. Ran them at about 50 to 70 lbs and they never leaked.tolerances on my vehicle are tight(like most new trucks) so even a slight bend in the brackets caused wheel contact, not a good scenario. Bags were installed on a 2016 nissan titan xd 4x4 to haul a cab over camper that has a dry weight of 1700lbs.


Comments
Generally, bending brackets happen when the air springs have too little air to support whatever load. When this happens, the rubber bellows becomes a rubber bumper and hammers on the brackets until something bends or breaks.

Review from a similar Ride-Rite in Vehicle Suspension


Great bags. But Firestone needs different 5th gen lower brackets.
The carriage bolt was rubbing my hard brake lines. I had to space them out with washers. I ended up installing the Daystar cups and just not using the lower bracket. Personal opinion is it should come with cups instead. All in all the bags are great. Only issue was the rubbing.

Review from a similar Ride-Rite in Vehicle Suspension


Product was exactly as described and while an installation on a 40+ year old truck was somewhat interesting, the instructions were informative enough to allow me to make minor adjustments and create a good fit. One of the Schraeder valves was defective but Firestone replaced it.


Comments
Great! No issues of any kind.

Great system, on 2020 f150 3.5 ecoboost. Eliminates light steering when loaded, levels out load perfectly.
Easy install, no leaks. Love these air bags. etrailer has great pricing, fast shipping and excellent support.

Still works great, pulled RV thousands of miles and keeps trucks amd RV much more stable.

Excellent fast free delivery, good instructions, 11/2-2 hrs installation time, not too difficult. I put 80lbs psi both sides and now going over a rough road at 55 mph instead of banging hard It bounces. Hopefully l can change the air pressure and find the sweet spot.

1st photo wheel off the ground, 2nd photo wheel on the ground. I installed Summo springs 4 yrs ago and they were totally flat,so not much help. As you can see in the 2nd photo the Summon spring has lifted up an inch, so some improvement there.

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


Went on a 01 ford excursion 7.3 diesel 2wd. First off they don't tell you that on the driver side you will have to fight the fuel lines to get the lower bolt and not on, if you have a lift might not be bad but rolling around on the ground one handed takes some patience. The brackets bend pretty easy when you tighten them up I wish they where of thicker gauge it would give me more piece of mind.overall it's a easy install.

Review from a similar Ride-Rite in Vehicle Suspension


Great product and easy to install. etrailer always provides excellent service with quick shipping. This Firestone kit was put on 2012 Dodge Ram 2500 diesel mega cab. Everything comes in the kit you need and offers clear instructions to install. One side note is to make sure you dry fit the airbag in the brackets so that the final install goes easier for you. This product allows easy load leveling when trailering or hauling heavy loads and also works with bolt in gooseneck hitches.

Review from a similar Ride-Rite in Vehicle Suspension


Great product, I ordered this for a 1998 custom e350 running 2010 king ranch gear meaning the running gear, since I couldn’t go with the kit specific for my van due to the fact that I converted it to 4x4 I ordered this kit. I did have to drill some holes since it was not specific to my rig, but that was no big deal just used a step bit. I also had to cut a bracket and reroute my emergency brake line, but hey I knew it wasn’t gonna be super easy. Any way kit is superb bags are top quality. The kit comes supplied with everything you need

Delivery was as expected. An inventory of the parts was complete. Packaging of the brackets would have been better. The coating was missing in several areas, due to the fittings not being individually protected. I have not installed the airbags.

Review from a similar Ride-Rite in Vehicle Suspension


Perfect fitment! This kit really thought of everything. No hardware i didn't need nor that I felt was missing. I lifted the truck from the frame to give myself more room while working on the ground but even if I hadn't it would have been fine. The only caveat, it's time to go fishing through your junk drawer for all those IKEA Allen wrenches you couldn't dare to throw away, all the hardware consist of Allen head screws. Which is fine if you never plan on removing them again and it's pretty hard to over torque and break a bolt.

Review from a similar Ride-Rite in Vehicle Suspension


2015 Ram 3500 CCLB, Kit was received in a timely manner. Good packaging, no damaged components. I read the directions several times so I had a clear path to install. Directions are very specific without confusion.

Install: Took me about 3hrs. Could have been quicker, but I wasn't racing anybody. Very methodical about how everything was installed. Everything went just as the directions detailed. 1 missing note: no comment about the E Brake cable interfering with the L upper bracket. Cable settled into a reasonable position to prevent damage to the cable housing. Air fittings on top of bags: can be difficult to tighten due to the limited space. Use caution to prevent damage to the fittings.

I did use a compression "T" to combine both lines to 1 fill fitting. No really good place to put the fittings at the back of the truck. The supplied mount doesn't work with the round hitch on my Ram. I routed the air line up to the fuel door. Clean install and less chance of damage.

A suggestion for the manufacturer: Don't apply thread lock to the fasteners or air fittings. The thread lock on the upper bracket bolts created such an interference that I couldn't secure the bolt without breaking 1 of my 6mm Hex bit sockets. Also, thread sealant on the air fittings makes it extremely difficult to turn the fittings in the tight space. It would be better to supply a small tube of liquid thread lock and a small tube of liquid thread sealant in the kit.

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.

  • Do the Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs Require Drilling to Install?
    In order to install the Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs # F2478 you are going to be required to remove the rear wheels and rest the axle on jack stands. When it comes to drilling, you will be required to do some drilling into the vehicle frame to install these airbags. I have included a picture of the part of the instructions where it shows where drilling is likely going to be necessary. You'll also likely need to do some cutting or drilling to install the air valves on your bumper.

    I called Firestone to confirm the fit for you, and found that the # F2710 is a fit for the 2019 Ram 3500 pickup. For cab/chassis models, you'll want to go with # F2478. You might also be interested in an onboard compressor system like # F2219. A compressor system would allow you to add or subtract pressure from the system while you're on the move without having to exit the cab or having to find a gas station that has free compressed air.
