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.

i went with the Firestone setup in lieu of a bumpstop type of helper or one of the other air filled type of lift/ leveling brands, based on reviews from 5th wheel travel trailer fourms as well as the Ford Tremor owners fourm. i had also used a similar Firestone air lift upgrade on a Ford Bronco back some years ago and had great results. the Ride Rite system allows me to adjust according to the amount of weight which is important to me while hauling our 5th wheel trailer. i installed the system my self. i am including a couple photos taken a year after the installation. one pic shows where i installed the air valves. I would highly recommend this system, thus the 5 stars.

2021 Ford F-250 Super Duty

It's a very nice kit! But there's a couple of things people should know about, like little tips and tricks about installing it on a new 2021 F250. First, the Firestone kit; frame nuts didn't have the holes for the threaded rods. That in itself is a problem. Tips for that: once the clips and jounce bumper are out, take your screwdriver and scrape the edges inside the frame. Place the frame nuts carefully into position grab your flat head screws put them in easy. Grab some super glue, get the edges, pull them back down into place, and let them dry! Then you'll be ready to mount the top bracket. Second, once you figure out what your height is for the axle saddle bracket holes to use. Put into the Lower bracket, put the four bolts and nuts on. Move over to the driver side [ driver side is the left side ] remove the brake line bolt 10mm let it hang free. Place the brackets you just put together and set them down on the axle. You might be tight to your steel brake line like I was. I had to cut/grind at an angle about 3/16 on the Lower bracket on one corner only, put both brackets together by hand again, and replace it on the axle. If you're good, then go ahead tighten them up now, don't wait. I'll show a photo of what mine looks like. No need to worry about the right side [ passenger side ]. Set those brackets up and tighten them up now, so there's no concern on that side of cutting or grinding. Back to the driver side, there's a little wire for the brake sensor; go ahead and use a zip tie and zip it to the brake line now. Why because? It lays right where the foot of the axle saddle bracket sits. You don't want to crush it; it's for your ABS. Third, place the bag onto two brackets you just set up and ready to install; use the bolt hand tighten only. Work the driver side first; it the hards in terms of the two sides. Jack the vehicle up by your receiver a few inches to lift the bed a little that way, you can sit up under your truck, where your truck spare tire was. Grab your bail clamp and tighten the bracket and bag into place, then connect the top of the bag by hand with the 15/16 nut, plus moving the button of the bag to position it into the best place; once you're happy, then tighten the button bolt 9/16. Then use your tool to tighten the top 15/16 nut. Finish off with your two carriage bolts and under the axle bracket.

using on 2020 F250 supercab 4x4 with service body and the install was easy and the directions are clear with everything needed included in the package running between 30 and 40 psi levels out the truck great. Keeps the headlights from being annoying to other drivers. Will purchase from them again for sure. etrailer was a great store for this

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


Works great. Fit my F250 perfectly and did not interfere with the 5th wheel puck system(etrailer). I’m not a mechanic but was able to do it myself by jacking up the rear so the axle was hanging freely. Adding the compressor may have added a better experience considering you can add or subtract air from the system without stopping. I’ll be adding that system before hitting the road again.


Comments
Works great. Thought of installing an onboard compressor but decided it wasn’t necessary because the system doesn’t loose air. I think it was a good investment.

Review from a similar 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

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


Just got the air lift installed this morning. Hooked up 40ft trailer and drove to shop to get annual inspection. Trailer was empty so no real noticeable difference yet. The install was straightforward with no drilling needed. Will see how well it works next week when I begin pulling loads again. Just as I have come to expect with etrailer the purchase was as good as listed on site. Air bags are heavy rubber and should hold up to the loads that I put on the truck.

Hi my name is charlie o, I recently purchased the extreme duty air bags for my 2003 dodge ram 2500. The manufacture is very reputable and also the instructions were fairly simple to install the air bags! It took me 2 Hours for the install and no drilling required which is a plus!!! I personally would recommend this product and the sales personal were very nice and knowledgeable! Thankyou again etrailer.com!!!

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


The Firestone Ride-Rite Red Label air springs came packaged really well in a nicely designed box with professional graphics. The provided instructions are very detailed and geared for any average person with a modicum of mechanical abilities. The videos that are linked to this product, filmed by etrailer, are spot on and provided the needed guidance. By choosing to complete the install myself, I am almost certain that I saved several hundred dollars. The drivers side Air Spring went in quickly with no issues. However the passenger/off side Air Spring install was no picnic. The frame mount and upper spring bracket bolt holes did not match up at all. A step drill had to be used with cutting oil to make considerably larger holes to allow the bolts to line up. I have a feeling that the jig that Firestone is using during the manufacturing process may be off a bit. The "wings" on both spring brackets had to be bent a tad to slide up into place to sandwich the frame where the old OEM jounce stops used to be as well. They had to be placed in a shop vise and widened with a long 2x4. This job, which was going along smoothly, turned into a 6hr day rolling around on a creeper. Other than the install issues, the product is made really well. You can tell it is made for heavy duty. It Is finished in a nice powder coating. It works as advertised and raises the rear to support heavy loads for towing. Would like for Firestone to adjust their manufacturing jigs though.

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


Going with 3 stars this time due to the warehouse issue. It's not that I needed the parts sooner or they held me up doing anything, but the web said "should deliver Thursday" and I wanted to take them to the frame shop with me on Friday that is an hour away. I'll end up putting them on myself now, which isn't a big deal. The reason I got when I called and asked why they hadn't shipped out yet was they "were in a non-stocking location" and they "could be 30 ft high where we can't reach them". I can't for the life of me figure out why anyone would stock things like this or tell the customer "we have them in stock.....we just can't get to them." I'm sure it some COVID excuse like the entire country is dealing with so that's my only complaint. Everything else was just fine as usual with my orders.

So far I like the product, it looks well made, is heavy duty not light duty :-) I have not installed yet but looks pretty straight forward. My only complaint if you can call it one is I would like to see the packaging beefed up a bit, it traveled across the country and was a bit beat up, seemed to stay intact thou. Other wise looks good.

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.
