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.

This kit was easy to install in a short amount of time using only common hand tools, the only problem I have is that the fittings for the air springs keep leaking, I have pulled the tubing back out and made sure the ends are cut square in installed correctly but they are still leaking. If it wasn't for this problem I would've rated this kit as excellent, overall still a very good kit, I just need to find some fittings that don't leak.

The kit has worked well over the last year, I air up and down almost on a daily basis depending on the load Im carrying at the time, I do this manually since I have on board.

Easy installation instructions,looks great works great no leaks holds set pressure. In the future I will install pump ,to inflate and deflate as needed.

The inner diameter of the Flat washers provided to mount the u-bolts were too small and were unusable.

2016 Dodge Ram Pickup

Made a world of difference in 5th wheel bottoming out causing a rough ride on Ram 3500. Does cause a little stiffer ride with no load inflated to 5 psi



by:
2013 Dodge Ram Pickup

Extremely satisfied with purchase, ride is 80% better while towing 42ft 5th wheel with ram dually and also while not towing I drop pressure to 13 psi which takes a lot of the bump shock out of the ride . Satisfied customer.

2015 Ram 3500

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.

Detailed instructions on easy to follow. Also, shipment was very fast, two days.

These air bags work exactly as advertised. Easy installation. They provide excellent suspension support when we are towing our Montana fifth wheel which has a pin weight of 3400 pounds. It levels everything out and provides an excellent ride. The best part it our headlights are level as well.

2019 Ram 3500

This is the 4th truck I have installed Firestone bags on. Took a little longer than an hour, instructions/pictures were good. Last set lasted 12 years.



by:

Air bags are awesome really easy to Install very satisfied.



by:

Haven’t installed it yet but customer service was great and it showed up when it said it would.



by:

This is my 4th set of Ride-Rite air helper springs and just like the last 3, they've worked flawlessly. I've been using them on my work trucks for years, and they are very effective when towing/hauling heavy loads, or even just to rake a truck back out after adding a front leveling kit. Huge bang for buck. Highly recommend.



by:

This kit is easy to instal with clear instructions. Improved my towing.

Product was as expected and received it quickly. The package was complete and in excellent condition.

Dodge Ram Pickup

Ordered my Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs for my Ram 3500 and put them on myself. Being 71 and laying on the concrete floor I had to take a couple breaks but had them on and leakless in probably 6 hours. Teamed them up with a compressor with a fob and man I feel like a real trucker.
Bags have really stabilized my truck when hauling my pickup camper eliminating any roll. Couldn't be happier.
Great dealing with etrailer good price and very prompt delivery.



by:

Extremely pleased with the Firestone system. Does a great job of leveling out the truck and installation was fairly easy.



by:
2019 Dodge Ram Pickup

Installed the F2615 air bag kit on my 2019 Ram 3500 4X4. I’m happy with the quality of the kit, and the installation was easily done in the driveway without jacking up the truck.
If it helps someone: I had previously installed a 1.5” leveling kit in the front end which was perfect. But now with the air bags lifting the rear a little, I wish I had installed the 2” leveling kit in the front.



by:
2019 Ram 3500

The air bags have performed great so far (I’ve done one trip)
I installed myself which only took about 2 1/2 hrs. I miss read the directions a couple times. Only thing the directions don’t say is if you over turn then back up the threaded air connector you might get a leak with just the factory thread sealant. Had to pull off and put tape on one connector.



by:

Very Very impressed with the prompt service and ease of installation of the air bags



by:

I am not a big fan of the Firestone kit. It was not difficult to install until it came to the air fitting on top of the air inlet on the bags. Not a very good design at all and this kit didn’t come with roll plates like I received in the last Air Lift system I purchased and not nearly as well engineered.

If I had it do over again I would have purchased another Air Lift system.



by:
2021 Ram 3500

Easy installation on the ground with hand tools. I mounted the air valves in front of my bed toolbox and needed every bit of the supplied tubing to get to the passenger side bag.



by:
2018 Dodge Ram Pickup

30 minute install. Works great. Ram 3500 high output Cummins. 42 foot fifth wheel. 18,000 lbs
2750 lbs weight on the hitch. Keeps it level and smooth.



by:
2015 Ram 3500

great product and fast delivery



by:

I have installed it on two trucks. It provides stability and greater handling. It prevents excessive tire wear on the front tires as it keeps the truck level.



by:
Dodge Ram Pickup

Fairly easy install and helps keep my Ram level when I'm hooked to the toy hauler or my machinery flatbed trailer.

  • Suspension Enhancement Recommendation for 2015 Ram 3500 4WD
    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. I like the construction of the Firestone bags the best so I would recommend the # F2615 which is a confirmed fit on the 4-wheel drive 2015 Ram 3500. These will live longer than the truck and the bags have a limited lifetime warranty. The number one killer of these bags is not maintaining the minimum pressure required. You...

    The Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs part # F2615 are a great option for a 2017 Ram 3500 while you're towing or hauling heavy loads. The pressure inside the air bags can be adjusted so you always get the best mix between support and comfort while loaded.

If you're slamming off the bump stops off-road then adding air bags and putting some air inside can help prevent this so...

  • Can I Use the Firestone Ride-Rite # F2615 with a 1-Inch lift on a 2019 Ram 3500?
    Yes! You can still use the Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs - Double Convoluted - Rear Axle # F2615 with your 1-inch lift. I went ahead and reached out to my tech at Firestone, and he recommends not using a spacer kit for your 1-inch lift. The # F2615 will install right onto your 2019 Ram 3500 with no additional parts required. It is important to note that this model does not fit your 2019 Ram 3500 if you have the factory air suspension. It is compatible with 4-wheel drive only.

  • Is it Normal for Pressure in Air Suspension On 2020 Ram 3500 to increase When Truck Is Loaded
    What you mention is absolutely normal for an air suspension system like the # 2615 Firestone Ride Rite. The recommended procedure is when you load heavy objects into the truck is to have the bags at about 10psi then load up the truck. Then, add air as needed. It's completely normal for the pressure to rise as the load increases.

  • No-Drill Install Air Springs For A 2016 Ram 3500 Dually 4x4
    The Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs # F2615 clamps onto the axle tube and bolts into your jounce bumper mount on the frame so the only drilling you should have to do would be simply for the air valve. Typically the air valve(s) will be mounted to rear bumper near the license plate. Where you mount the valve is completely optional so you could put it somewhere else and not need to drill at all.

  • Firestone Air Bag Spacers for a 2014 Ram 3500 with 4 Inch Lift Kit
    When choosing lift spacers for your Firestone air bags # F2615 on your 2014 Ram 3500 4WD you will need the ones that are equal to the amount of actual lift on the vehicle. Once the lift kit is installed you can measure the distance between the upper and lower air bag brackets. If that distance is 9-1/2 to 10-1/2 inches then you would need the 4 inch spacers # F2370. If you come up with a different measurement let me know what it is and we can find the right spacers for you!

    Installing air bags like the Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs # F2615 on your 2016 Ram 2500 are going to limit the compression and extension when inflated, as that's what they're designed to do; when unloaded, they're not going to limit the compression nearly as much but because the air bags are attached to the frame and leaf springs with brackets, over extension would potentially damage the bag.

  • Can Firestone Air Springs F2615 be Used on a 2020 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 # F2615, 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.

Since you have a 2 inch lift you'd need the spacer kit # F2366 as well to take up the extra space created by the lift kit.

I recommend this system because the air bags and the brackets are built stronger that those on the Air Lift LoadLifter , part # AL88396 system.
