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 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 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 truck 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 truck's bumper to provide easy access to the manual inflation valves.


Air Spring Construction


RED Label spring construction

Unlike standard Ride-Rite air springs, the RED Label air springs operate up to 150 psi to maximize its weight capacity. 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 RED Label Extreme Duty kit includes vehicle-specific brackets, fasteners, and hardware for fast, no-drill installation. The hardware installs directly on your axle and frame and the air springs install onto the mounting points provided by the brackets. Additional equipment like control panels, compressors, and air tanks are sold separately.

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.

Review from a similar Firestone Ride-Rite Red Label in Vehicle Suspension


The Ride-Rite Extreme Duty Air Springs (RED Label) worked great on my RAM 3500 DRW. I pull a 40' Montana 5th wheel. 15,000 lbs and about 4,000lbs on the truck bed. I had the NON Red Label rated at 5,000 lbs and blew one airbag on extremely bumpy Illinois Interstate. I have put about 20,000 miles on the RED label airbags rated to 7,500lbs and have been VERY happy. P.S. I am not one of those Saggy rear end trucks that shine their headlights in your eyes thanks to the support I get from these air bags. Level ride = level lights 644651

This system works great on our F-350 single rear wheel truck. We have a gooseneck trailer that weighs about 15,000 lbs. Without these airbags the truck really sits low. The airbag system levels out the truck, makes it brake and ride safer. 499453

the service was one of the best that I have ever ordered from. They gave me suggestions on different products that would fit my 2017 3500 GMC Denali for the use that I needed. The instructions with the airbags was right on as for showing and telling you what to do and installing them. Very Happy with the whole thing and would buy from them again. Thanks Gregg G 423143

These bags are Firestone RED LABLE or Xtra Heavy Duty High Pressure air bags. I rate these bags 5 star, that being said, the question really is: Do you need bag pressures above 30-50 psi? The most likely answer is No, that being the most likely answer, I would purchase Firestone Standard Air Bags. Why? Presure. I never exceeded 30 PSI with my 2015 Dodge Ram 2500 6.7 Diesel. Yes I pull at or above Max Load. GREAT BAGS & EASY INSTALL. FYI: Install airlines with separate independant fill valves to maintain stable ride in curves and corners. I do not recommend single full point to both bags, bad idea. 545897

Looking forward (to doing more business with you) !! Un merci du Québec!!! Le site est très fonctionnel. Les informations sont pertinentes et le suivi est personnalisé. J'ai reçu mes articles en bon état Il s'agit de fixations boulonnées au cadre du camion qui servent à maintenir une caravane portée en place. # des fixations: Code=TLD2127,TLD3109 L'autre item sont des ´´balounes'´ pour renforcer la suspension sur mon Ram 2500 cabine d'equipe, boîte 8 pieds avec des marches pieds qui se prolongent jusqu'à la boîte, année 2014. code=F2706 Je recommande fortement.

I've recently upgraded my Fifth wheel to a toy hauler 19k lbs. plus and the kit leveled my truck - no more headlights way out of adjustment.... like being able to quickly adjust air pressure both up and down with and without the trailer..... a snap..

Do you have a question about this Vehicle Suspension?


  • Best 5th Wheel Towing Setup for a 2007 GMC Sierra 2500HD
  • Since you have a short bed (6-1/2') on your 2007 GMC Sierra 2500HD, you will need a rolling hitch or more commonly referred to as a sliding 5th wheel hitch for your 397 Heartland Edge Toy Hauler to make tight turns. The general rule of thumb is that if you're towing a 5th wheel trailer with a truck that has a bed shorter than 8' then you will need a sliding hitch to gain clearance between the trailer and the cab of your vehicle while turning to prevent them from contacting one another,...

  • Recommended Air Springs For 2007 Chevy Silverado 2500 Short Bed 4x4 Duramax
  • For the weight you are pulling with your 2007 Chevy Silverado 2500 short bed 4x4 Duramax, I recommend the Firestone Ride-Rite Red Label Extreme Duty Air Helper Springs - Rear Axle # F2700. These air springs are adjustable from 5 psi to 150 psi and have a leveling capacity of up to 7500 lbs. This kit has the heavy duty brackets and is confirmed to fit your truck. It comes with the manual inflation valves. If you want to add an air compressor for on the road adjustment, I recommend...

  • How to Determine Correct Inflation Pressure for Firestone Ride Rite Helper Springs
  • Air Helper springs for a tow vehicle or RV's suspension always have a fairly wide range of operating pressure. For instance the Firestone kit you mentioned # F2071 requires nothing less than the minimum 5-psi pressure at all times but can be inflated to as much as 100-psi when the vehicle requires this much stiffening of its suspension. There are also kits such as Firestone # F2700 that are for extra-heavy-duty applications and these use air springs that can handle as much as 150-psi pressure. There...

  • I spoke with my contact at Firestone regarding the capacity of the F2250 Ride-Rite springs. The capacity of the springs is 4800 lbs, which would be nowhere near sufficient to handle the weight of your slide in camper. I would suggest going with an air spring set-up like the Firestone # F2700. With a 7500 lb capacity, this kit would work great for your application. You might also be interested in a compressor kit, part # F2168 that would allow you to add or remove air pressure from the...

None of our suspension enhancements are designed to increase the towing capacity of your vehicle. According to Nada Guides, the max towing capacity of your truck is 10,500 lbs.

  • Suspension Enhancement Recommendation for 2015 Chevrolet 3500 Express Cutaway
  • We have suspension enhancement that is a fit for a 2015 Chevy Express 3500 on a cutaway chassis, but it's not the Firestone Kit part # F2700 that you referenced. Instead you would want the SumoSprings kit part # SSR-206-54 which is a confirmed fit. This is a rubber spring kit instead which means you still get the suspension support but you do not have to maintain air pressure or run any air lines.
