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 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.

2020 Ram 3500

Over the years I’ve ordered quite a bit from eTrailer.com and used them again for this upgrade. Their staff always makes sure to get you the correct answer for questions and are quick to follow up, Their prices are always very competitive too.

I knew what I need and ordered online, the well packed box arrived within a few days and was complete and undamaged.

My son and I installed this Firestone airbag kit late on a Saturday afternoon and took our time. The instructions were well laid out and clear. I didn’t watch any install videos. This was a very easy job if you don’t mind getting dirty. It is important to pay attention to the details highlighted in the instructions. It’s helpful to lay the parts out and practice assembly on a few items since you will be on your back and working where you can’t see what your hands are doing above the axle. Don’t get in a hurry.

I added an airline tee (not included ) to my install since I’m only hauling trailers and I’m not worried about adjusting the levels from side to side, this simplifies adjusting air pressure to just one valve. The parts all seem well made and heavy duty for the job. This is the same brand and model popular with hot shots and camper haulers.

Five stars across the board, I know you will all appreciate my low beams not blinding you when I am rolling down the highway.

Air bags are great. Tow a ton. Happy. R ecommend

Excellent service!
Ordered Wednesday
afternoon, arrived friday morning.installed Friday afternoon. Easy install. Should have done it years ago!



by:

As a reference point to others, I have a Dodge Ram 3500 without duel rear tires. My biggest loads are my Artic Fox slide-in camper or my 12k utility trailer. I had a set of helper steel springs to help handle the load, but the ride was rough. I dumped the steel helper springs and installed the Firestone Ride-Rite Air Springs. That has allowed me to vary the air pressure with the load in the truck for an improved ride, especially when empty. The structural parts of the kit are very good and well designed and installed quite easily. The air fitting sucked. I never got the ones that go into the top of the air springs installed. I went down to the local auto parts store and got some that fit. I should admit that it was subzero in my unheated garage when I installed them so that added to difficulty of handling small parts in tight spaces. Performance wise they have met my expectations and improved the ride of the truck when loaded or empty.



by:

VERY PLEASED WITH THIS PRODUCT. MUCH BETTER THAN THEIR COMPETITOR.



by:
2013 Ram 3500

Great quality. Excellent installation instructions. Performs perfectly. More than compensates for the weight of my 3000lb cabover camper. Handled around 4500lbs of tile pallets no problem. Definitely recommend these bags



by:

We install these for customers and they love them.



by:

Gave sit 4 stars only for the fact: yes it will work with 7k axels. However you will need longer U bolts which etrailer does not offer for the 3” or 7k axels. Had to get longer and upgraded U-Bolts from etrailer. I ordered these from Rough Country.

They were longer than needed cut about 1.25” off.



by:

I got one fill valve, instead off two. So I gave you four not five stars. I did order the tee so I made it work. Good product, No complaints.



by:

High quality. Fast shipping always satisfied with e trailer!!



by:

Overall I think this is a great product. The only flaw would be the bracket for inflating the air bags. I remounted the air hoses by installing thru the license plate bracket for more security.



by:
2016 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited

Installation was easy. Installed on a 2020 Ram 3500 Dually hauling a Lance 1172 slide in camper which weighs approximately 4600 pounds dry. Easily raised the truck to level at 120 psi.

Awesome product easy to install!

  • Can Firestone Red Label Air Bags Withstand Rough Terrain in an Oil Field
    Firestone Ride-Rite Red Label Extreme Duty Air Helper Springs # F2710 are pretty tough. I would not be too worried about the occasional rock but long pointy things like branches could puncture an air bag. But I imagine that you are traversing this rough terrain carefully and not driving fast so I would not be all that worried about the air bags under those conditions. You will want to follow the routine maintenance outlined in the owner's manual for the air bags to ensure they stay in tip...

  • Firestone Air Bag Kit Recommendation for 2014 Ram Dually 3500 with Factory Rail Kit
    For your 2014 Ram 3500 that has the factory rail kit for fifth wheel towing and does not have air suspension the Firestone air bag kit part # F2710 is a confirmed fit and will work well.

  • Higher Capacity Firestone Air Bag Suspension Enhancement Kit that Fits 2018 Ram 3500 Dually
    Hey Tom, the Firestone Red Label kit part # F2710 is a fit for your 2018 Ram 3500 dually and would be a great option to provide additional suspension support but there isn't a kit that will convert it's air lines to stainless steel like you asked about. Air Lift used to have versions of their kits that had stainless lines but that's not something available any more.

  • Is There An Aftermarket Air Spring Kit For A 2017 Ram 2500 With Factory Air Suspension
    Hi Delavon, You can definitely convert from your factory air suspension, but you'll need a bit more than just an aftermarket air spring kit. The factory air spring takes the place of the coil spring and shock. You'll want to reach out to a Ram dealer and get a complete list of components to convert the truck back to coil springs and can then use an appropriate Firestone or Air Lift aftermarket air spring kit. This is probably going to be a lot more involved and expensive to do so let me...

  • Will The Firestone Ride Rite Red Label Extreme Fit a 2023 Ram 3500 Dually?
    Yes, the Firestone Ride-Rite Red Label Extreme Duty Air Helper Springs # F2710 will fit your 2023 Ram 3500 Dually. The only 3500's these will not fit is those with the factory air suspension system. I recommend using the Firestone Air Command II # F2219 as the compressor is capable of providing up to the 150psi the air springs are capable of holding. The controller and gauge are dual function allowing you to adjust each air spring individually for uneven loads.

    The 224CZ item number you sent me only comes back with a style of bellow and not the actual model number. That being said there are two compatible Firestone Ride-Rite options for your 2021 Ram 3500 Dually. Unfortunately we do not carry all the necessary components for you to install the air springs on your vehicle. Not to mention the cost of piecing together the brackets separately would well exceed a brand new system, which would also come with a 2-year manufacturer warranty. Because...

  • Firestone Air Suspension Enhancement Recommendation for a 2014 Ram 3500
    Yes, for a complete Firestone air suspension enhancement system designed to work on your 2014 Ram 3500 4WD that includes everything needed to install the kit you would want part # F2710. For a compressor kit to make inflating and maintaining pressure in the system you would want the part # F2178. This allows you to have control of the air bags at any time so you don't only have the manual inflation valves that require planning ahead.

    So long as your father's 2018 Ram 3500 with the factory prep package does not have the factory Air Suspension system then yes, the Firestone Ride-Rite Red Label Extreme Duty Air Helper Springs # F2710 will fit his truck. With these air helper springs I do strongly recommend using the Firestone Air Command II - Analog - Heavy Duty Compressor & Air Tank # F2168 because it will let your father operate the air bags from the comfort of his Ram 3500's cab and it has a 1/2 gallon air tank to...

  • Will the Firestone Ride-Rite Red Label F2705 Fit a 2018 Ram 3500 with Prep Package
    Yes, the Firestone Ride-Rite Red Label Extreme Duty Air Helper Springs part # F2710 will fit your 2018 Ram 3500 with the factory prep package. This is because the airbags mount in the same location as the factory jounce spring so no interference issues will be present. If you are also looking for an air compressor kit I recommend the Firestone Air Command I part # F2097. I have attached a review and sample install video for you.

  • Suspension Enhancement Recommendation for 2013 Ram Towing Fifth Wheel Trailer
    I'd go with an air bag kit for your needs. I'm not sure totally why the service guy you talked to didn't like them but they are the best at providing suspension support when needed and then when unloaded you can deflate the bags and have the same ride quality you are used to. Adding a leaf is going to make your suspension much stiffer unloaded and I would not recommend that. Especially on a 3500 truck which already has stiff suspension. You'd basically have no rear suspension movement at...

  • Firestone Air Bags for a 2017 Ram 3500 4x4 Dually
    Yes. Firestone Ride-Rite Red Label Extreme Duty Air Helper Springs - Rear Axle Item # F2710 will fit your 2017 Ram 3500 4x4 dually. I also recommend adding an on board compressor kit such as Firestone Air Command II - Analog - Heavy Duty Compressor & Air Tank - Dual Function - 150 psi Item # F2168 so you can adjust the air pressure from the comfort of the truck cab.

  • Will Firestone Air Bag Helper Springs F2580 Fit a 2017 Ram 3500 4x4 Pickup
    The air springs in kit F2580 are a different size than what is required for the 2017 Ram 3500 so there isn't a way to use those springs on your Ram. For your Ram you can use Firestone kit # F2560 or the Red Label version # F2710 (note these kits only fit models that do NOT have the factory air suspension system). I have linked some videos on these kits for you.

  • Recommended Suspension Enhancement and Compressor for a 2020 Ram 3500
    If you are getting a lot of squat when towing with your 2020 Ram 3500, the Firestone Ride-Rite Extreme Duty # F2710 will definitely be a good option. This is rated to 7,500 pounds when at full psi and will get the back end of your truck back to normal. It can then be deflated down to 5 psi when not towing to restore the stock ride feel. With this being an extreme duty system, I suggest going with the Firestone Dual Air Command # F49VV is rated for heavy loads and is dual path so you can...

    The best air bag kit we offer for a 2018 Ram 3500 (SRW and DRW) is the Firestone Ride-Rite Red Label Extreme Duty Air Helper Springs part # F2710. This system will do an excellent job of helping take strain off the existing suspension components as well as reducing sag which will help keep things level.

    To add a 7,500 lbs air bag system to your 2015 Ram 3500, I recommend the Firestone Ride-Rite Red Label Extreme Duty Air Helper Springs item # F2710. These air bags will level out the rear end of your Ram when you are towing your gooseneck trailer or if you're hauling a heavy load in the bed. I recommend adding the Firestone Dual Air Command System w/ Standard Duty Compressor item # F39VV. This onboard compressor will allow you to adjust the PSI in your air bags individually from your phone.

  • Which Firestone Air Bag System for 2019 Ram 3500 Cab/Chassis
    I called Firestone to confirm the fit for you, and found that the # F2710 is a fit for the 2019 Ram 3500 pickup. For cab/chassis models, you'll want to go with # F2478. You might also be interested in an onboard compressor system like # F2219. A compressor system would allow you to add or subtract pressure from the system while you're on the move without having to exit the cab or having to find a gas station that has free compressed air.

The springs provide up to 7500 lbs of support, but wouldn't increase the weight carrying capacity of your truck.
