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 did not help to make the back more stable so I could put a camper in the bed. I just sold the truck as was not good for camper, and the Firestone Ride-Rite Red Label Vehicle Suspension did not help. Rich 725815


Comments
Air springs are ideal for leveling your truck bed when towing or hauling heavy loads. For a constant load that requires some extra stability, a different type of load support may work better for you. Many customers have found they like SumoSprings Helper Springs, like # SSR-312-54

great product, installation instructions could be clearer. the right side needed to jack up bed then it went right on. You can't slip it on front to back like the other side. At first it seemed it did not fit. 664643

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

A thank you from Quebec !!! The site is very functional. The information is relevant and the follow-up is personalized. I received my items in good condition For these, it's a matter of bolting them to the frame of the truck and are used to maintain a camper carried in place. Tie down # Code = TLD2127, TLD3109 The other items are ''airbags'' to reinforce the suspension on my Ram 2500 team cabin, 8 feet box with foot steps that extend to the box, year 2014. code = F2706 I highly recommend. 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.

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

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


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

  • Recommended Air Bags Kit for Towing a 5th Wheel with a 2016 Ram 2500 4X4
    For your 2016 Ram 2500 I recommend going with Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs. We have these with 2 different weight capacities, 5,000 lbs # F2598 and 7,500 lbs # F2706. The 5,000 lb system should be more than enough since they will be helping directly with the pin weight of your 5th wheel, but if you plan on doing a lot of towing or utilizing your pickup daily apart from towing your 5th wheel the 7,500 lb kit would be more beneficial.

  • Firestone Air Bag Suspension Kit Recommendation for 2016 Ram 2500 with 1 inch Lift
    For a 1 inch lift Firestone doesn't recommend a spacer. The part # F2706 should be fine without the spacer. You might try it without and see first. I imagine you'd be fine, but if you wanted the springs to activate sooner you could add the part # F2536 at a later time. I'd rather have the spring lower than higher as if it's too high you'll get a rougher ride.

This is the Red Label Extreme Duty kit so unless you're towing pretty much all the time it's more than you need. But like I said it will work. Instead I recommend part # F2598.

  • Recommended B&W Companion And Air Springs For 2015 Ram 2500 Cummins With Factory Rail Kit
    The B&W Companion OEM 5th Wheel Hitch for Ram Towing Prep Package - Dual Jaw - 25,000 lbs # BWRVK3600 is what you are looking for. It does not install into the OEM gooseneck but does attach to the OEM pucks in your truck. It is a different design than the companion designed to fit with the B&W gooseneck underbed system. I also recommend getting the wiring harness # PK11893-11932 to add a second 7-way connection to the bed of your truck for easier connection when using a 5th wheel or...

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch and Air Bag Kit Recommendation for 2018 Ram 2500 Short Bed with Factory Rail Kit
    The best fifth wheel hitch we offer for your 2018 Ram 2500 with the factory rail kit is the B and W Companion part # BWRVK3670 which is a slider hitch confirmed as a fit for your truck's rail kit. The slider moves back so that you can have the needed clearance to make a tight turn. For an air bag kit then we have the Firestone part # F2706 which is a confirmed fit and will work great. For a compressor kit to make inflating the bags easy and convenient we have the Air Command kit part...

  • Will Firestone Ride-Rite Red Label Kit Work on 2019 Ram 2500 with Reese 5th Wheel Hitch
    The Firestone Ride-Rite Red Label Extreme Duty Air Helper Springs # F2706 that you referenced will work great on your 2019 Ram 2500 4x4, and its mounting brackets won't interfere with the frame brackets from your existing 5th wheel base rails. This system is designed to work with an in-bed hitch like your Reese slider. This heavy-duty air bag kit will provide you with a load-leveling capacity of up to 7,500 pounds and the air bag's adjustability (5 psi to 150 psi) lets you maintain...

  • Size of Air Bags on Firestone Ride-Rite 2706
    I contacted Firestone about this issue and they were unable to tell me if these bags would work with Daystar cradles. They told me they had not tested them, had no affiliation with Daystar and had no information about if they could fit.

  • Recommended Suspension Enhancement for 2017 Ram 2500 to Improve 5th Wheel Towing
    Thank you for the photo of your Ram 2500 and Grand Design 5th wheel and for all the details about your towing setup. I spoke to tech staff at both Blue Ox and Lippert and I have some information to pass along to you. First, the Turning Point pivoting pin box cannot be replaced by another because it is integrated into the frame of your Grand Design. Unlike other pin boxes that bolt on (and come off) the Turning Point is there for the life of the trailer. The Blue Ox Super Ride 20K...

  • Recommended Air Bag Kit for 2019 Ram 2500 4WD
    The correct Firestone rear air bag kit for your 2019 Ram 2500 4WD is either part # F2598 for standard duty (up to 5,000 pounds load-leveling support) or part # F2706 for the higher capacity Red Label model that features a 7,500 pound load-leveling capacity. I checked with Firestone and they show the same two kits for this particular truck. I wonder if the kit numbers they use on their site (which are W217602598 and W217602706 respectively) might be adding some confusion. These numbers...

  • Firestone Air Suspension Kit Recommendation for a 2016 Ram 2500
    For your 2016 Ram 2500 you would need the part # F2706 for Firestone suspension enhancement. The part # F2445 that you have on your Tundra would not fit. You may as well leave the kit on the Tundra and then install the # F2580 on the Ram.

  • What Size are the Air Bags for Firestone Ride-Rite Red Label for a 2019 Ram 2500
    For your 2019 Ram 2500 the correct Firestone Ride-Rite Red Label air bag kit is part # F2706. The air bags in the kit have a maximum diameter of 7.52 inches at the widest point, compressed height of 3 inches, and extended height of 8.91 inches. However if your truck is lifted a spacer may be required to make up for the additional height. I have attached a photo of where to measure, and once you find that distance you can choose from the following if a spacer is needed. 6-1/2" - 7-1/2"...
