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.

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 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

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


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

  • Firestone Air Bag Spacers Needed for 2014 Ford F-350 with a 4" Lift
  • You actually may not even need that much of a spacer. Since the air bags themselves take up some space Firestone has put together a formula that you can use to help you determine what kind of spacer you need. To figure out the needed spacer simply measure the distance between where the brackets would be and choose from the following: 6-1/2" - 7-1/2" - Lift Spacer # F2536 7-1/2" - 8-1/2" - Lift Spacer # F2366 8-1/2" - 9-1/2" - Lift Spacer # F2367 9-1/2" - 10-1/2" - Lift Spacer # F2370 11-1/2"...

I believe your truck will have no problem with the camper but you may want to consider using a suspension enhancement like the Firestone Ride-Rite Red Label Extreme Duty Air Helper Springs - Rear Axle # F2703.

  • The Firestone Ride-Rite Red Label Extreme Duty Air Helper Springs - Rear Axle # F2703 will help your truck to ride level and will assist in the shock absorption, but these suspension enhancement springs are not going to increase your load capacity. These springs are compatible with your vehicle and with the in-bed hitch. I can't say if the increased wheel and tire capacity along with increases suspension capacity will allow that extra payload. The transmission and motor will also possibly...

  • 5th Wheel Hitch and Install Kit Compatible with Air Ride Suspension on 2012 Ford F250 Short Bed 4x4
  • Firestone offer a Ride-Rite air helper spring option that is compatible with fifth wheel / gooseneck hitch installations, part # F2703. A compressor kit with a standard duty compressor is available as part # F2158 or part # F2097 for a heavy duty compressor. For a fifth wheel hitch, you'll need the rail/bracket kit, part # RP50026-58. Because your truck has the short bed, you'll need to use a sliding hitch like the Pro Series # PS30121. I've linked you to some installation videos...

  • Recommendation On A 5th Wheel Hitch and Suspension Enhancement on a 2015 Ford F-350 6 Foot Bed.
  • For your 2015 Ford F-350 with the 6 foot bed, I would look at a slider 5th wheel hitch to allow yourself enough clearance when making 90 degree turns wth the shortbed design of your truck. The B&W Companion 5th Wheel Hitch # BWRVK3400-5W and the B&W Custom Under-bed Installation Kit # BWGNRK1111-5W is the 5th wheel hitch that I recommend for your application. The B&W slider hitch gives you 12 inches of fore and aft travel to help eliminate clearance issues in making turns and has a capacity...

  • Recommended Compressor-Compatibile Air Helper Springs for 2013 Ford F350 Dually
  • I'd recommend the Firestone Ride-Rite # F2703.The system is compatible with a fifth wheel or gooseneck hitch, so if you have one now or plan on installing one in the future, the kit would work. If your compressor kit was manufactured by Firestone or AirLift, the kit mentioned above would work great for you.. The Ride-Rite kit you looked at, part # F2597 isn't compatible with all cab configurations of your truck (not a fit for V10 gas engine w/ extended cab and 8 foot bed). It might...

  • Firestone Air Bag Kit That Fits 2011 Ford F-350 with OEM Rail Kit
  • The Firestone air bag kit part # F2703 which fits your 2011 Ford F-350 was designed to be compatible with in-bed hitches like your Reese/Ford OEM rail kit so this kit will fit and work well without any interference. For a compressor kit then the heavy duty part # F2097 will work great to make inflating the bags and maintaining them easier. The compressor will inflate faster than standard compressors and the gauge inside the vehicle will allow you to monitor and inflate them from inside...

  • Air Bag Kit Recommendation for 2016 Ford F-250 4x4 with 4 inch Lift
  • For your 2016 Ford F-250 4x4 the correct Firestone Ride Rite kit is the part # F2703 that you referenced as this is a confirmed fit for your truck and is also compatible with an in-bed hitch like your 5th wheel setup. Since you have a 4 inch lift you'd also want the 4 inch spacer block kit part # F2370 which takes up the extra space between the frame and the axle that the lift kit created. You'd want to verify for sure that your lift does give you an additional 4 inches of lift as sometimes...

  • Recommended Air Spring Kit for 2018 Ford F-450
  • I do have an option for you, however the Firestone Ride-Rite Red Label Extreme Duty Air Helper Springs # F2703 that you referenced are not designed to fit your 2018 Ford F-450. This particular kit is a fit for the 2011-2013 Ford F-450 and there is not a similar system from Firestone that will work on your truck. I instead recommend looking at the Air Lift LoadLIfter 5000 Ultimate Plus Air Springs # AL89399. These springs are confirmed to fit your 2018 Ford F-450 as long as you have...

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Hitch, Wiring, and Air Springs for 2016 Ford F-350
  • Starting with the fifth-wheel trailer hitch, the B&W Companion Slider # BWRVK3400-5W and rail kit # BWGNRK1111-5W that you listed is confirmed to fit and will work great on your 2016 Ford F-350 if it has the 6-3/4 foot bed. The B&W Companion hitches are considered to be the best on the market and this will provide you with a 20,000 pound towing capacity and 1 inch thick dual jaws for an excellent connection to the trailer. I have attached an installation video on the F-350 that you...
