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. No drilling required.

Video Transcript for Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs Review

Today we're gonna be taking a look at Firestone's Ride Rite double convoluted air helped springs for the rear axle. You'll wanna refer to our fit guide here at etrailer.com to determine the appropriate set for you.Airbags gonna help improve safety and stability when hauling heavy load. You can adjust the pressure to bring it back to the factory ride height. As well as adjusting independently so you can adjust for an uneven load. Depending on the set that's appropriate for your vehicle, they can add a max load leveling capacity between 3,200 lbs and 5,600 lbs. now keep in mind this does not increase the load carrying capability of your vehicle.

It's just there to help support the weight and bring you back to an even ride.Firestone's double convoluted design features four rubber layers and a braided girdle in the middle which helps give it that double convoluted shape. What this means for you is that it's gonna increase the burst pressure. It's designed to hold up to 100 PSI to provide the maximum support load. These will provide assistance when hauling a heavy load in the back of your truck or SUV, or when hauling large camper or trailer.

Another benefit of having the air springs is it'll help reduce the strain put on your rear suspension axle. They can be used to more evenly distribute the load across the components so one item isn't taking too much stress. You'll receive everything you need to get it installed in the kit. This includes the fittings where you'll air it out, the airline that will run from your fittings to your airbags. Your airbags as well as custom fit brackets that are designed to easily and quickly install onto your vehicle.

These are manually inflated so you will need to provide your own air source or stop by a gas station to adjust them. Now if that seems like too much of a hassle, or you haul multiple varying sized loads daily, you can pick up an air compressor kit here at etrailer.com. Firestone has a few available. We've got the heavy duty installed on our vehicle right now with part number F2590.Some of our customers are curious if these come with internal jounce bumpers. They do not come with internal jounce bumpers.

But with a high pressure of up to 100 PSI, they're plenty able to handle the job.Our customer Jim had to say, "This kit was super easy to install. Matter of fact I did the install in the driveway of my in-laws with a basic tool kit as I found I needed these to provide a more pleasant towing experience when I was moving cross country." And then one year later, Jim had to say, "I like them more the longer I have them. I do my own projects around the house and these are handy for the heavier stuff that you're gonna haul from the point of purchase to the house. Keeps the truck level and helps utilize all of the capability of the truck drivetrain and frame."And that completes our look at Firestone's Ride Rite double convoluted air helper springs for the rear axle.

This is my 3rd set of Air Springs. They are awesome if you seriously use your rig, I highly recommend them. I've installed them on a 2005 GMC 2500, a 2013 F-150, and this set, a 2017 F-250. This recent set ended up being the most problematic. I am not a mechanic and I don't play one on TV. Maybe because I installed 2 previous sets, I didn't pay enough attention to the directions. Anyhow, the directions are for 3 different installs on 3 different F-250's. Really confusing to have on the same sheets of paper. Also the verbiage on screwing in the valves is, for lack of a better word, weird. Screw them until you can't see the coating on the threads. Shipping was incredibly fast and the quality of the items were all you could hope for. I did get a battery powered ratchet for this install and I highly recommend you do the same. I don't have a bay or pit, just a garage. With perfect 20/20 hindsight,, take off the wheels! Last but not least, the video really needs editing! Way too much advertising/marketing pushing the product in the install video. 466382

Overall very pleased with these air bags. I did add an on board air compressor to allow easy adjustment as I pull anything from a 16,000# fifth wheel, to a 10,000 car trailer to a boat trailer. The ability to adjust with the on board compressor just added convenience to an often used set of air bags. 628873

Review from a similar Firestone Ride-Rite in Vehicle Suspension


I have used the Firestone suspension air bags to adjust my 2017 F150 when carrying large cargo box loads. It worked very well for the loads I was carrying, which were between 800 lbs to as much as 1100 lbs on other occasions. My only objection is a slow leak in my left side, which may be in the left air bag itself or tubing fittings. After I installed the system, I used a soap solution to check for leaks. At the time I could not find any. Because it is a slow leak, I simply have had to top off either the left or right side air bags and I am fine to go for the day. 636096


Comments

Dont forget to check at the Schrader valve, as well. Those have been known to leak. The soap solution test works great, unless its a very slow leak.

The Firestone Ride-Rite vehicle suspension system is excellent. It allows me to easily increase the air pressure to compensate for camper tongue weight and lower pressure for a soft ride when no tongue weight exists. The installation at etrailer was superior as always. Outstanding company to do business with. 432066

This is my 2nd purchase of this system . 1st time for my 2013 Ford F-150 Limited , easy to install ,instructions were great and they worked awesome for pulling my car trailers and my travel trailer with the bed loaded with firewood and camping equipment. This time I purchased it for my 2019 Ford F-150 Limited. The kit was complete and as before easy to install. I took my time to route the air lines in the frame to hide them and used provided protectors so no chafing . I purchased the tee fitting to conect 2 lines into 1 and used the mounting bracket . I would highly recommend this product to enhance your trucks rear suspension . 615241

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


Comments

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.

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

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

Review from a similar Firestone Ride-Rite in Vehicle Suspension


Kit cam quickly and the instructions were clear enough if you are mechanically inclined. If your not then don't try this because you need to have a good safe way to raise you vehicle pull the wheels off the back and work under for a couple hours. That being said once installed on my 2016 Tacoma the performance was excellent. I am currently running about 12 psi. And the hitch is about 1 1/2" higher with no load. Hooked onto my mower trailer with mower and it handled it as easily as my 2500HD. Mower is a JD 27hp 60" zero turn commercial. Haven't hooked the camper up to it but this definitely made the towing on my Taco much better. Great addition to any smaller or 1/2 ton truck that needs some beef in the back. Truck will be safer to handle loads if you do your air to match the load. I just use a bicycle pump to adjust. Easy to be accurate with each side. 405062

This system I installed on my 2012 Ford F-450 dually pickup. I love it!! I replaced a air bag system that I had put on by so called professionals. It was terrible. It mounted under the spring shackles. It helped when puling a heavy loaded trailer but rode terrible otherwise. The system I bought from e-trailer uses air bags under the rear axles. It handles heavy loads when air up to 90 psi and rides smooth when empty at 25 psi. I recommend it highly. 595195

Review from a similar Firestone 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

Took a few hours to get it completed, and went in as described. Have not had opportunity to test them out under load, but figure they would perform as expected. Instructions were not totally accurate, 4 bolts had changed size (to a smaller bolt than listed), but anyone with common sense could figure it out. (I did. LOL!) Wish "they" had included a "T" to inflate them equally, but purchased one at Lowes for about $6. I also "beefed up" the hose around sharp corners to protect them from getting damaged. 131693

Was concerned if thls kit would fit a 2010 Silverado 2500 HD Quad cab with 6.5 ft. bed with a B&W fifth wheel turn over ball hitch. It took me 2.5 hours and every thing fit perfect. No problem with the instructions dead on, and the only holes I had to drill was in the rear bumper for the air fittings. Have had them on since November no air leaks or problems. This make my truck ride excellent with my toy hauler and other gooseneck trailer I have. Alot cheeper than a air pin box and does the same thing,no more chucking and bouncing. thanks 7291

Very happy with this product. I used it on a 7,000 mile cross country travel trailer trip to level my trailer to prevent sway. Coupled with my WD hitch, sway was almost non-existent. As an example, I noticed a slight difference in towing from an almost empty TV gas and a full tank. Some fine tuning with my air pump resolved that. Also, a little extra tongue weight and drop was remedied with increasing air in the bags. The only negative was the bags loses some air when not under extra weight. I had my mechanic check for a leak but none was found so he claimed it must be thru the pump. not a deal breaker. 606083

Simple to install, took my time, the brackets of my 5th wheel did not prevent me from installing it, there was room between the custom bracket and my frame, so if you have a Silverado 2012 with custom brackets check to see if you have nearly 1/2 an inch clearance, than you can use this item. Suggestion to etrailer, re-box the item, reinforce the box to ensure that the box and items are not mangled in shipment. the box was a mess, had been re-taped some time along the shipment line, freaked me out where I had to inventory everything and really check for damage, especially the hose, part of it was not serviceable and I had to ensure that I did not use that section which was right in the middle of the hose. Other than that, I am happy with it. 52628

I installed this on my 93 Chevy Z71 shortbed about one year ago and it is working great. The short wheelbase allows for more strength but the hwy springs are too soft for heavy loads. This airbag system allows me to haul a full load of wood on my 10k trailer and the pickup bed loaded as well. I carry a hand air pump in the toolbox to adjust the air bags whenever needed. This suspension mod allows me to haul maximum loads out of the woods and makes for a smooth and safe ride on the Hwy. 316278

Review from a similar Firestone Ride-Rite in Vehicle Suspension


The product engineering is great, everything fit perfectly! It was easy to install especially after watching the video on etrailer.com, I hardly had to look at the printed instructions. So far the noise level when unloaded has decreased significantly, and when loaded with a 10k fifth wheel, it has smoothed out the constant push/pull bounce I usually got from the stiff springs. I should note that I have a 2004 Dodge 3500 and I took my factory overload springs off and used this kit to replace it. The factory overload springs would "slap" on the upper supports at times and that is the noise that was eliminated. Now the extra load is on the air bags and that has smoothed out the loaded ride. I only have to run 10 lbs. of air level the truck with the 1300 lb. pin weight. etrailer.com is a good company to purchase this product from, while I didn't need to call customer support, the shipping was super quick even when I ordered on the holiday weekend! Thanks! 150626

Review from a similar Firestone Ride-Rite in Vehicle Suspension


Great install video. Thank you especially for calling out the tools and socket sizes as you went. That made everything so much easier. Great tip on getting the line cutting tool. I installed in 2 hours as you suggested. Worked great, no leaks first try. Great customer service at eTrailer each and every time. 343275

Review from a similar Firestone Ride-Rite in Vehicle Suspension


I just received and installed my Air Springs. I AM IMPRESSED!!! Obviously, by the product as my 3/4 ton now rides like a 1/2 ton, but also by the service I received from Michelle at Etrailer.com. I phoned in my order and she was able to answer my installation questions and pointed out the videos on the product installation which were very detailed and made the actual install painless. I found the product at a slightly smaller price at another site and Etrailer honored their lowest price pledge. I would recommend Etrailer.com for your suspension needs! 190281

  • Firestone Air Bag Suspension Kit Recommendation for 2018 Ford F350 4X4 DRW with Factory Hitch Prep
  • I have a better solution for you that we can guarantee will work. The Firestone air bags are considered by many to be superior to the Air Lift bags and we know for sure that the Firestone kit part # F2600 does fit the dual rear wheel 2018 Ford F-350 models with the factory in-bed hitch. So with this part number you'll get a better kit that is a confirmed fit without any guesswork.

  • Air Bag Suspension Kit Recommendation for 2019 Ford F-250 Super Duty
  • For your 2019 Ford F-250 the Firestone Ride Rite air bag kit part # F2600 is the best kit available. We've found that the Firestone air bags are higher quality than the competition so we recommend them the highest. Then for a compressor kit that will make inflating and monitoring the air pressure easy we have the Firestone kit part # F2097. This kit has a heavier duty compressor too so it will inflate quicker.

  • Recommended Airbag Kit and 5th Wheel Hitch for a 2017 Ford F-350
  • For an airbag kit that will work with an in-bed hitch on your 2017 Ford F-350, I recommend the Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs part # F2600 as this kit is specifically designed to be used with trucks that have an in-bed hitch. The airbags have a 4,800 lb max load leveling capacity. In order to operate the airbags from inside the truck, I recommend using the Firestone Air Command I part # F2097. For a 5th wheel hitch that will fit the factory rail system on your truck, I recommend...

  • Can B&W Turnoverball Gooseneck Hitch and Firestone Ride Rite be Used on 2017 Ford F-250
  • The B&W Turnoverball Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch w/ Custom Installation Kit # BWGNRK1116 is confirmed to fit your 2017 Ford F-250 with a 6-3/4 foot bed. You can store the included 2-5/16 inch hitch ball upside down in the hitch when you are not towing for complete bed access. This system has a gross towing weight of 30,000 pounds and vertical load limit of 7,500 pounds. I spoke with my contact at Firestone and while he did state that the Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs #...

  • Best Airbag System and Compressor Kit for a 2017 Ford F-350
  • We currently carry two different brands of airbags/compressor systems; Firestone and AirLift. I personally like Firstone as they have been around longer and tend to have better quality products. For your 2017 Ford F-350, I recommend using the Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs part # F2600 which is a complete kit that has everything you will need for installation. It will also work with an in-bed hitch if you have one or will be using one in the future. In order to operate the airbags...

  • Air Bag Helper Springs for a 2018 Ford F-350 Dually Diesel 4x4
  • I do have a solution for you but Air Lift does not have an air spring kit that fits the dually models of the 2018 Ford F-350. Instead you can use Firestone kit # F2600. I have linked a video that shows an example installation for you. I also recommend compressor kit # F2097. This will allow you to adjust the air springs from the comfort of the truck cab without having to relay on an external air compressor. I have included a link to a video on the compressor kit as well.

  • Suspension Enhancement Recommendation for 2017 Ford F-350 with B&W Turnoverball Hitch
  • Since the frame mounting space is the same area when installing the Firestone kit part # F2600 and the B and W hitch you have you'd be better off with a Timbren suspension kit part # TFR350SDJ as it would not interfere at all. Some prefer the Timbren kits over the air bag kits as they don't require air pressure maintenance or running any air lines.

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Hitch & Rear-Axle Air Bag Kit for 2017 Ford F-250 4WD with 6-3/4-Ft Bed
  • For your 2017 Ford F-250 4WD with 6-3/4-foot bed you will need a slider-type 5th wheel hitch like the Pro Series # PS30121 or the Curt # 16516 along with a base rail installation kit like # RP50074-58. A slider hitch will give you the clearance you need for making sharp turns. Between the two I suggest the Curt hitch since it offers more slider travel. You can still use the Reese install kit # RP50074-58 since it costs a bit less. For a wiring harness for the truck bed you can use part...

  • Suspension Enhancement Recommendation for 2017 Ford F-350
  • I'd first make sure you aren't exceeding the capacity of your truck as 4 inches of squat for a 1 ton truck is quite a bit. Assuming you are within the capacities of your vehicle your best option is to use suspension enhancement to bring the rear suspension. Changing the ride height makes suspension enhancement installs more complicated and then it also makes towing the trailer level with enough bed rails clearance difficult too. Air suspension would be your best option since it will...

  • How Much Can a 2019 Ford F-250 Crew Cab Powerstroke Tow
  • The towing capacity of your 2019 Ford F-250 Crew Cab Powerstroke with the 6-3/4' bed will vary from 14,100-16,600 lbs depending on drive type, axle ratio, and gross combined weight rating. If you can provide me with this information I would be happy to provide you with an exact capacity. The axle ratio should be listed on a tag inside the glove box and the gross combined weight rating should be listed on a tag inside the driver door jamb but if not you can always call the dealer with your...

  • How To Improve The Suspension On Your 2017 Ford F-250
  • In order to gain the most stability and support for your 2017 Ford F250, you will want to install both support and sway control components. The most economical way to add support to your truck is by using the Timbren Suspension Enhancement System part # TFR250SDJ. The Timbren springs are a good way to add additional support to your vehicle while towing or hauling a heavy load however, the best way to add support to your truck would involve installing air bags such as the Firestone Ride-Rite...

  • Can I Use Airbag on a 2019 Ford F-250 with the Factory Prep Package
  • The only airbag kit we have that will fit your 2019 Ford F-250 is the Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Air Helper Springs part # AL57399 for standard or part # AL88399 for ultimate. The ultimate version has an internal jounce spring which lets you temporarily carry a load with zero air pressure in your springs. The Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs part # F2600 will not work for you because the airbag installs on the outside of the frame rail which is currently occupied by the factory...

  • Recommended Air Springs For Best Ride Quality When Towing
  • On your 2018 Ford F-350, adding air springs will absolutely help smooth out your ride. The Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs # F2600 you mentioned are an excellent choice to give you the ability to adjust for comfort between 20 psi and 100 psi. This kit will come with the manual inflation valves that will allow you to adjust your springs using any air compressor. If you want the convenience of adjusting the springs at any time, I recommend the Firestone Air Command I Compressor...

  • Recommended Leveling Air Suspension Enhancement for 2019 Ford F-350
  • The Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs - Double Convoluted - Rear Axle # F2600 are a great option for your 2019 Ford F-350. There is not an automatic leveling option, but these air springs when paired with a compressor will give you the ability to level your truck at any time. I recommend the Air Lift WirelessONE Compressor System for Air Helper Springs - Hand-Held Remote - Single Path # AL25870 to give you the adjustability at any time whether inside or outside your cab with...

  • Which Airbags Will Work with the B&W Turnoverball Gooseneck Hitch on a 2017 Ford F-250
  • The Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs part # F2600 that you referenced are for a 2017 Ford F-250 2WD. If you have a 4WD then you would most likely be using the Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs part # F2605 instead. If this is the case then the B&W Turnoverball Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch w/ Custom Installation Kit part # BWGNRK1117 will work for you as the gooseneck brackets install on the outside of the frame rails whereas the airbag brackets install underneath the frame...

  • Can the Same Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs from a 2015 F-150 be Used on a 2017 F-250
  • Even though the Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs part # F2582 that you have on your 2015 Ford F-150 use the same air bags as the Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs # F2600 for your 2017 Ford F-250, it is much more cost effective to purchase a whole new kit than to piece it out. I have had other customers make the same type of inquiry as you and that is the answer from my contact at Firestone every time. I recommend keeping your old air bag system installed in the F-150 and maybe adding...

  • Which Firestone Ride Rite Kit Fits a 2017 Ford F-350 with Lift Kit
  • The Firestone air bag kit part # F2600 is a fit for 2017 Ford F-350s but to determine what you'd need beyond that to get it to fit since you have a lift first requires you to determine exactly how much lift you have. If you have a 4 inch lift you'd need the part # F2371 or if you have a 6 inch lift you'd need the part # F2375.

  • Will B&W 5th Wheel Companion and Firestone Ride Rite Be Compatible in 2017 Ford F-350
  • The Firestone Ride Rite Kit part # F2600 you have installed in the bed of your 2017 Ford F-350 is compatible with in-bed fifth wheel hitches so the B and W kit you referenced of # BWGNRK1117 with the hitch part # BWRVK3500 will fit and work well!

  • Firestone Air Bag Kit Recommendation for 2017 Ford F-250
  • The Firestone kit part # F2355 is designed to fit newer Nissan Titans but would not fit your 2017 Ford F-250. Your best option though would be to sell the kit you have on eBay or list in on a Nissan forum as you'll most likely be able to get most of your money back out of it and then will be able to buy the part # F2600 which is a fit for your new truck and the cost will be offset the most. The replacement brackets for Firestone bags will add up quick and it will make more sense to go...

  • Will Firestone Air Bag Kit Fit 2018 Ford F-250 with In Bed Hitch Installed
  • In the instructions for the Firestone air bag kit part # F2600 that you mentioned which is a fit for you 2018 Ford F-250 there is a special section on installing the kit on trucks that have in-bed hitches like yours. I attached a page from the instructions that shows this portion of the install as well as a link down for below for you to be able to see the full instructions.
