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.

The Ride-Rite kit was shipped and delivered promptly. The online installation videos that etrailer provided online for the product help make the install a breeze. The ride height is completely where it should be now, even though it is close to the maximum weight capacity for the truck. Good quality product, fit perfectly and installed easily. 773317

Review from a similar Ride-Rite in Vehicle Suspension


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

Review from a similar Ride-Rite in Vehicle Suspension


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

These springs improved my towing experience. I would not pull a trailer using a half ton truck without using these springs.

The air bags are the second purchase for this product for two different Toyota trucks in three years. I chose etrailer because they are thorough, always right and provide excellent customer service. The bags worked well with my bumper pull last year at around 20 psig and now with our new fifth wheel at 55 psig. Both sets of Firestone bags have been excellent. The Toyota Tundra pulls our Grand Design very well. We drove from South Carolina to New Mexico with no problems and a smooth ride thanks to etrailer and Firestone! 409027

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

    The Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs part # F2542 will fit your 2014 Ford F-150 but will require a spacer to be used to compensate for the 4" suspension lift you have installed. The Firestone Lift Spacers part # F2370 will be the spacers you need so long as the distance between the upper and lower airbag brackets is between 9.5" and 10.5".

  • Fit of Firestone Ride Rite # F2542 Air Helper Springs and 5th Wheel Hitch on 2014 Ford F150
    According to Firestone, the only fifth wheel set up they've tested on the 2014 Ford F150 for fit with the # F2542 is the B&W Companion, which consists of the # BWGNRK1104 install kit and the # BWRVK3400 sliding hitch. My Firestone rep tells me that there's a good chance that a Universal Install Kit like the Husky # HT31564-686 would fit, but since they haven't tested it, we can't guarantee fit.

    For your 2010 Ford F-150 the Firestone Ride Rite kit part # F2542 would be the best kit to use. We have found these kits are the easiest to install and have the highest quality air bags. Then for a compressor kit we have the part # F2158 which comes with an analog gauge which allows you to monitor the pressure from inside the cab and inflate/deflate as needed to eliminate the suspension squat.

  • Suspension Enhancement for a 2013 Ford F-150 with Draw-Tite Gooseneck Trailer Hitch Installed
    Firestone Ride-Rite kit # F2542 is designed to work ONLY on trucks that have a B and W hitch installed. Since you have a Draw-Tite hitch we can scratch this one off and look at kit # F2525.

The Draw-Tite gooseneck hitch for your truck also has brackets that mount to the outsides of the frame so kit F2525 will not work with the hitch installed. A...

  • Differences Between Firestone Ride Rite Air Helper Spring Kits # F2542 and # F2525
    According to my Firestone representative, the only difference between the # F2542 and the # F2525 is that the mounting brackets on the F2542 are a bit different to allow a B and W fifth wheel hitch or a fifth wheel hitch with the # RP30035 universal brackets to be installed. The Firestone # F2525 would not be compatible with frame brackets for a fifth wheel hitch.

This is because this particular air bag system is designed to fit the B&W install brackets. If you are using Firestone kit # F2525 then you will not be able to install the B&W hitch.

These air springs will work with both 2 and 4 wheel drive 2014 stock height models with 5th wheel hitch brackets (Excludes SVT Raptor, FX2 and F-15 models after 2014).

    Firestone has an air bag kit # F2542 for your 2013 Ford F-150 that would fit with a B and W Gooseneck hitch # BWGNRK1104 but if you have the # F2525 there isn't a way to make it fit with a gooseneck hitch as the brackets interfere and there isn't a replacement that alleviates that problem. So the best option I have would be to go with the # F2542 if you don't have this kit already and then go with the B and W Gooseneck # BWGNRK1104.
