Firestone Ride-Rite Air Spring Basics

Firestone Ride-Rite springs are designed to increase safety and reduce the strain on your truck when you are hauling heavy loads or towing a heavy trailer. The springs partner with your existing rear suspension system to help keep your truck level, maintain even load distribution, and increase stability. Hauling heavy loads or towing a heavy trailer can make the rear of your truck 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 truck 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 the Ride-Rite springs can be adjusted manually, side to side, to compensate for off-center loads. A centered load improves the stability of your truck by reducing body roll. The air springs will also help to absorb road shock and 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 truck's bumper to provide easy access to the manual inflation valves.


Air Spring Construction


Firestone Ride-Rite 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 truck. 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. No drilling is required for installation.

This product has been serving me very well thus far. Everything was simple to install and even easier to use. Makes towing my 5th wheel nice and smooth while keeping my truck at optimal ride height. Perfect fit for the 2016 Ram 2500 with rear coils. 445632

2018 Ram 2500

Paint was poor and chipped up. Brackets did not fit my 2018 Ram 2500. You may be able to bend the bracket to fit around the frame so the holes line up. If you do that and they don't fit you just ate 300.00. These are not just a simple install on my truck. I see where guys drill, bend, cut to get these to fit. Not sure I want to do any of that. My truck is brand new! 703183

I have spoken with my contact at Firestone about this suspension enhancement kit and they confirmed that the brackets in this kit are designed to fit very tightly on the Ram trucks frame.

2016 Dodge Ram Pickup

This was an install on a 2016 Ram 2500. Left side install(drivers side) was a beeeze. (Side note- remove tire and heat shield) Right side install took some trouble shooting. The right side upper bracket and bag bracket did not align when joined together. The bracket welded on by Ram is pretty thick (or at least mine was -along the outside of the frame) so this did not allow the bracket to sit squarely enough to align the holes needed for mounting the two together. Solution- grind down upper tab on bracket on the inside. Also note- if you are using a floor jack in your driveway, lower the truck fairly low, so you can allow for an easier time getting the whole assembly to fit in the allowed space. This will also mean you will need to remove the passenger side tire. By lowering the truck once the tire is off, will allow for the suspension to stretch out creating more room. I did end up minorly stripping out the bolt used to fasten the bottom of the bracket to the axle. Ended up using a tap and dye to get things straightened back out. One last tip, in order to tighten the Allen bolt used to to tighten the air bag to the lower bracket, it will not be a 6mm like the frame bracket. The size you need will be a 7/32 Allen wrench. Not your most common size, nowhere in my instructions did I find that information. Don’t forget to get your air elbow fitting aligned how you want it early on, nothing like getting it wiggled and jiggled into place -to only realize you don’t like the way the elbow fitting is pointed. No air leaks and no other problems other than some bracket modifying, hope this helps the next guy. Etrailer was out of stock and this order took a month to get. 4 stars for the hassle, the modifying part didn’t bother me at all, seems like it’s gonne be a great product for years to come. 545257

Item arrived quickly. Now that I have installed them I don't know why I waited so long to get air bags. I run a welding skid in the back (1500-2000lbs) and occasionally tow. Even though the truck only sagged 1½ inches, the sway at highway speeds was my real issue to correct. At only 20psi the truck sits and rides proper again. 711712

Air springs were not wrapped to prevent damage from metal brackets. Will have to fill them with air to make sure they were not punctured during shipment. 272271

  • Recommended Air Bags Kit for Towing a 5th Wheel with a 2016 Ram 2500 4X4
    For your 2016 Ram 2500 I recommend going with Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs. We have these with 2 different weight capacities, 5,000 lbs # F2598 and 7,500 lbs # F2706. The 5,000 lb system should be more than enough since they will be helping directly with the pin weight of your 5th wheel, but if you plan on doing a lot of towing or utilizing your pickup daily apart from towing your 5th wheel the 7,500 lb kit would be more beneficial. Both of these are compatible with an in-bed...

  • Difference Between Firestone Air Helper Spring Kit # F2580 and # F2598 for 2017 Ram 2500
    The differences between the two are the brackets. The # F2580 fits the 4WD model only, and has recently been updated to the # F2598 which will fit both the 2WD and the 4WD models. The difference is a matter of fit and not function. A compressor system like # F2097 is also available. A compressor system allows you to add or remove air from the system at any time from the cab of the truck. I've linked some install videos for the compressor kit and the two airbag kits for you to take...

  • Difference Between Firestone Ride-Rite Air Spring Kits for 2018 Ram 2500
    The difference between the Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs is pretty simple and just has to do with fit. The part # F2580 only fits a 2018 Ram 2500 with 4-wheel drive while the newer fits your truck no matter if it is 2-wheel drive OR 4-wheel drive. So you will want to go with the part # F2598, and the Ride-Rite kit is a really good choice for your Ram because Firestone's air bags are the strongest, most durable air bags on the market. The reason for this is because they are...

So for your truck you'd want the part # F2598 which is a confirmed fit and will work well. It's compatible with fifth wheel rail kits like what you have as well.

If your Ram has a 5.7L V8 engine the capacity will be 11,800 lbs if you have a 3.73 axle ratio or 13,880 lbs if the axle ratio is 4.10 (if you do not know your axle ratio you can often find this on a sticker on one of your Ram's door jambs).

  • 2019 Ram 2500 Suspension Enhancement that will Maintain a Comfortable Ride when Unloaded
    The Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs, part # F2598, can indeed work with your 2019 Ram 2500. However, because of your desire to have an easy ride when not loaded, I do not recommend going with air springs. Even on the lowest psi, there will be some impact on your ride. You can avoid that by going with a different suspension kit. I recommend the SumoSprings Rebel Springs, part # SS27GR.

With that being said it has been discontinued because the kit we now carry, part # F2598, fits both the 2-wheel and 4-wheel drive trucks. So the # F2598 will also fit your truck.

They are definitely helpful in terms of improving your overall ride and stability but just are not a substitute for a weight distribution system.
