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.

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

I recently purchased this compressor kit along with the AirLift Loadlifter 7500 XL air springs for my 2015 Silverado 3500. Installation for both is pretty straight forward but it did take me longer than I expected (about 8 hours total). They definitely help keep the ride height at factory designed levels & the auto leveling feature with the air compressor is excellent. I definitely recommend the wireless remote for the do-it-yourselfers as install doesn't require piercing the firewall to run wires for a switch. The wireless remote gives a digital easy to read screen that you can adjust while driving even. Overall I give this product a 5 star rating. 715339

  • Comparing the Air Lift 7500 Airbags vs Firestone 7500 Airbags for a 2015 GMC Sierra 3500
  • For your 2015 GMC Sierra 3500 Denali DRW 4x4, I recommend using the Firestone Ride-Rite Red Label Extreme Duty Air Helper Springs part # F2702 over the Air Lift LoadLifter 7500 XL Air Helper Springs part # AL57538 for two reasons. The first reason is that the Air Lift kit requires drilling into the frame (minimal) whereas the Firestone kit is completely drill free. The second reason is in regards to the construction of the airbags. The Firestone airbags use a crimp rolled design which is...

  • Can I Transfer Firestone Air Bags and Compressor from 2004 GMC 3500 HD to 2015 Silverado 3500 HD
  • There is a Firestone Ride-Rite Red Label Helper Spring kit available for your 2015 Chevy Silverado 3500 HD, part # F2702 with a 7,500 lb capacity. However, this kit uses different air bags, brackets and hardware than your # F2700 Firestone Ride-Rite Red Label Extreme Duty Air Helper Springs with the same capacity on your 2004 GMC Sierra 3500 HD. The same hardware and brackets were only used up to 2011. Since your goal here is to save money, it would not be in your best interest to try...

These heavy-duty 7,500 pound capacity air springs will do a great job of adding extra support to the rear suspension on your truck and the mounting brackets won't interfere with those from your existing fifth-wheel hitch. The durable construction of the Firestone bags are unmatched by other brands and their adjustable air pressure (5 psi to 150 psi) allows you to have a comfortable...

These are meant to be used for very heavy-duty applications like if your pickup is under a heavy load all day. I do also recommend using a compressor kit as it allows you to help keep your truck level and will improve your ride quality. For this I recommend the Firestone Air Command F3, which is available for Light Duty F3 # F2581, Standard Duty F3 # F2589,...

Firestone is a time tested brand that stands behind its industry leading air bags with a limited lifetime guarantee.

  • Why Is Drilling Required for the Air Lift 7500 Airbags On a 2018 GMC Sierra 3500 With 5th Wheel
  • There are two ways to install the Air Lift LoadLifter 7500 XL Air Helper Springs part # AL57538 on your 2018 GMC Sierra 3500, using the included u-bolts or drilling the brackets directly to the underside of the frame. The u-bolts would be used for when there are no in-bed hitch brackets that attach to the side of the frame but if you do have these then the u-bolts won't work because of where the in-bed hitch brackets mount therefore you will have to drill into the underside of the frame...

They're also made in the USA and have a limited lifetime warranty. For a compressor there's the Air Command I # F2097 that is single path or Air Command II # F2168 that's dual path. Both compressors will allow you to control and monitor the air pressure in the springs from the cab of your truck. The dual path adds the ability to have a different psi...

  • Can Firestone Ride Rite Kit # F2702 Fit with 1-1/2 inch Lift Block
  • Typically block lifts are body lifts which do not add distance between the axle and the frame. If that's what you have then the Firestone Ride Rite kit part # F2702 would fit as-is. If you do have a lift that adds distance between the axle and the frame you'd need a spacer kit like the part # F2536 which is a 1-1/4 inch spacer block.
