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

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.

They work great, one issue I have is there is a small leak somewhere, I have to air the bags up about every 10 days, no big deal that gives me a chance to get under the truck and check for other issues, I like the product , easy to install
Ryan S - 07/22/2019

In checking for leaks we recommend using a spray bottle with some soapy water, and I would start your leak inspection at any of the connections points (to the bag, or at the fill point), and then the rest of the lines.

Great product. Took about an hour and a half to install lying on my back. If I had a lift, I'm sure I could do it in under an hour. This is the second truck that I have installed these air bags on and both times, installed once and never had to do any extra servicing to the system what-so-ever. Just make sure you make your tubing cuts clean and perpendicular and push the tubing all the way in. Never have a leak. Period. 435215

I purchased this kit for my 2015 Ram 3500 HD Crew Cab Dually diesel. I installed in my garage, following the instructions, very simple to do. I tow a 32' enclosed car trailer, and these bags have been a must have addition for stabilizing the rear suspension. When fully loaded and traveling I put 40# in them and it makes a huge difference in how the truck handles overall. Couldn't be happier! 287435

Installation was not hard at all, I definitely recommend having an impact wrench handy though. The airbags definitely improved how my toy hauler towed!! They took out all sag and reduced the roughness on torn up highways. The pic shows my truck back to factory ride height with the bags. 665369

Review from a similar Ride-Rite in Vehicle Suspension


Package arrived in good shape and when promised. Installation was very straight forward as per the instructions. The only difficulty I had was threading the large nylocnut on to the airbag. Because of the limited access and view it was very difficult especially with the brass fitting already screwed into the airbag stem. I removed the airbag, removed the brass fitting then screwed the large nut over the stem several times. This made it easier to install the nut once everything was put back together as per the instruction and complete my installation. 638817

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

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

  • Recommended Suspension Enhancement for 2017 Ram 3500 Dually with Truck Camper
    For your 2017 Ram 3500 4WD dually, I recommend the Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs # F2560. The brackets for these air springs are compatible with an in-bed hitch and the air springs themselves have a 5,000 pound load-leveling capacity. The air bags can be adjusted manually, from side to side, to help level out your truck with the refrigerator installed on one side of your truck camper and they will definitely help reduce the rear sag you are experiencing.

  • Comparison Between Firestone and AirLift Suspension Air Springs
    I definitely have to go with Firestone. For one the Firestone kits that are compatible with your 2016 Ram 3500 use 4-ply rubber and the AirLift kits use 2-ply. This won't impact their capacity but will make a difference in how well they'll hold up to wear and tear. Also, the rubber is connected to the metal end plates by using a rolled crimp seal to prevent leaks. AirLift does not use this same method and simply crimps the rubber into the end plate.

  • Is Drilling Required to Install Firestone Air Bags on a 2014 Ram 3500 Dually
    Drilling is not required to install Firestone Ride-Rite kit # F2560 on a 2014 Ram 3500. There are many compressor options that you could use. I recommend Level Command kit # F2219. This is a dual-function kit with heavy duty compressor. It will allow you to add/remove air from the cab of the truck to each bag individually so you can level the bed side to side. I have included some helpful links on Firestone kits and Level Command kits for you.

  • Will Firestone Air Bag Helper Springs F2580 Fit a 2017 Ram 3500 4x4 Pickup
    The air springs in kit F2580 are a different size than what is required for the 2017 Ram 3500 so there isn't a way to use those springs on your Ram. For your Ram you can use Firestone kit # F2560 or the Red Label version # F2705 (note these kits only fit models that do NOT have the factory air suspension system). I have linked some videos on these kits for you.

  • Deciding Between Factory Air Suspension or Aftermarket Air Springs for 2019 Ram 3500
    This is a great question. It looks like the factory air suspension option for the 2019 Ram 3500 essentially replaces the standard coil spring system on the truck. This will do a nice job of helping to keep everything level when hauling heavy loads but if it were me I would go with aftermarket air springs instead like the Firestone Ride-Rite # F2560 and stick with the standard suspension from the factory. The primary reason for this has to do with the basic function of an aftermarket...

    Based on my research, the factory air ride suspension for the 2017 Ram 3500 will essentially replace the coil spring suspension on the vehicle. This will provide some nice features and the decision is ultimately up to you, but I do recommend going with an aftermarket system instead, such as the Firestone Ride Rite Air Helper Springs # F2560, as long as the truck has 4 wheel drive. The main reason I recommend an aftermarket suspension enhancement over the factory air ride system is the...

They specifically said these will not fit a 2-wheel drive model, unfortunately. So what that means is there is not going to be mounting hardware that will allow you to use your current Ride-Rite air bags.

    If you are wanting to obtain a very specific ride height the air bags will be better as you can adjust the amount of air pressure in them to fine tune the height.

  • Installing New Elbow Fitting on Firestone Ride Rite Air Helper Springs But Still Experiencing Leak
    For the Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs # F2560, the fitting needs to be threaded into the hex nut securely so that the orange thread sealant is engaged. If you cannot get your hand in the space to tighten the fitting, we recommend using a pair of pliers to tighten the fitting down. It is possible that when the first fitting was destroyed, the 3/4"-16 Hex Nut was also destroyed. If the hex nut was damaged that could be causing the leaking you are still experiencing.

  • Can Firestone Air Springs be Used on a 2012 Ram 3500 With a One-Inch Lift?
    Normally, vehicles with a lift would have to use spacers that are compatible with the air springs. However, with just a one-inch lift, you can install the Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs, # F2560, without having to use lift spacers. Firestone does not even make spacers for a one-inch lift, with their smallest spacers coming in at 1-1/4", which are # F2536.

  • Recommended Firestone Rear Axle Air Bag Kit for 2017 Ram 3500 Cab and Chassis and Pickup Truck
    The Firestone Ride-Rite rear-axle air bag kit # F2478 is the correct one for the 2017 Ram 3500 cab and chassis version, as used for an RV.

    It looks like you have done quite a bit of research already, so I'll try to fill in the gaps. It is hard to choose one particular setup that is best for any towing situation because there are so many different truck and trailer combinations that you can choose from. We know you are considering a Ram 3500 short bed, but choosing the best towing package will really depend on the trailer you end up choosing.
