Firestone Coil-Rite Air Spring Basics

Firestone Coil-Rite springs fit inside your existing rear coil springs to maximize the effectiveness of your suspension system. The added cushion provided by the air springs allows your vehicle to better handle a heavy load or trailer. Hauling heavy loads or towing a heavy trailer can make the rear of your vehicle 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 vehicle for more effective braking and handling under heavy loading or when you encounter adverse road conditions. The air springs also help to level your headlight beams and reduce wear on your tires.


Firestone Coil-Rite airline installation

Adjustable Air Pressure

The air pressure in your Coil-Rite springs can be adjusted manually, side to side, to compensate for off-center loads. A centered load improves the stability of your vehicle by reducing body roll. The air springs will also help to absorb road shock and 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 vehicle's bumper to provide easy access to the manual inflation valves.


Firestone Coil-Rite air spring components

Air Spring Construction

Coil-Rite springs are constructed of durable, elastic polyurethane to ensure years of service. Single replacement springs (sold separately) are available for maintenance to an existing Coil-Rite kit.


Air Spring Installation

The Coil-Rite springs install inside your existing coil springs. The custom-fit springs attach to your vehicle's spring seats.

2009 Hyundai Santa Fe

The F4170 kit does fit a 2009 Hyundai Santa Fe. However installation is not quite as simple as the video. In order to remove the jounce bumper and install the air bags on our All Wheel Drive the springs needed to be removed. The instructions show a 2" piece of air line at the bag and then a 90 degree union. Make that 1.5" and the union will not hit the top of the steel jounce bumper cup. Insted of a 7/16 inch hole for the lines, go bigger and put in a grommet so the line does not rub. I went to 5/8 inch and then used 3/8 fuel line to cover the air tubing. Protects it from getting cut and from heat at the muffler. I agree that the top spacers need work. No real retention or centering on top of the bag. I put RTV silicone on the spacer and then placed it on the air bag. It centered on the bag and it should stay put. When the vehicle is off the ground and the springs are at full extension, and the jounce bumper cup does not touch the spacer. With the bigger hole, the fuel line guard, and the RTV I hope the work for a while. If not the bags are lifetime warranty and the hardware has 2 years. 98925

2012 Hyundai Santa Fe

I must say the product was sold a great price, and delivered quickly. It installed easily following the directions and performed as expected. It handled the extra load on the 2012 Sante Fe and kept the ride smooth and level on our 1,200 mile rides. I do question the installation instruction as to the length of the stub tube under the elbow (at the top of the air bag). Installed it appeared the elbow was bent over at a very sharp angle and I fear a kink developing in the tube (though there is no problem to date and perhaps the little extra length prevents the kinking ?). They have been installed around 5 months now and have around 8,ooo miles on them. I have delt with e trailer before and will again....HIGHLY recommended 78713


Comments
The Santa Fe 2007-2009 has WAY to soft a rear suspension. In the UK they even have an OEM self leveling kit! But on in NA...So I bought the F4170 kit.Had it installed by a pro in June 2012.The mechanic last year did not trust the tubes or the connections. Felt like it was toys stuff. Not meant for 35lbs of pressure, not automotive grade.But it worked!What a different that made! It was great, my car behaved great even when fully loaded. It was an awesome solution, it proves the SF has a weak suspension, even though they say we it can loaded with 1100lb of gear. It was perfect, until the following spring. When I got to inflate them a year after installation, there was a leak. In both of them!! I lifted the car to check and one was totally torn open. There is a disc on top to protect the balloon, but it seems too small. Theres nothing to hold it centered, and thats probably what happened: it moved, got off center, and it could not protect the balloon from the jounce holder.For the other one, like mentioned above, the connections a weak. The mechanics calls them quick connect. Well you get the quality of a connection done quickly: not strong enough.Technically I am still under the 1 year warranty, well see. But if it was to do all over again, I probably would not choose that. Looks like I will have to repeat that every year... The thing dont last.

Firestone prefers to handle warranty claims directly, so please give them a call. Remember that these bags do have a minimum air pressure. Firestone specs them at an operating range of 5-35PSI. If they drop below 5PSI there is risk that the bags will not hold their shape and pressure and be prone to damage because they are inside of a moving coil spring.

Made another trip to Florida since installed..LOADED..... and the airbags performed very well. Level vehicle and no real noticeable harshness in the ride. Im a happy guy.We load the car, put kayaks on the roof and put about 350 lbs in a receiver hitch style carrier and the car is level and rides nice. I have nothing negative to say. Oh, I run 45 PSI loaded like this and it works great.

product is pretty easy to install, but in cold climates the airlines loosen up and pop off airbag stem. causing damage to airline. if you do buy this product I recommend buying the "T" line connector that way both airbags maintain conssistant air pressure. 487473

Okay, first of all. I have had this type of air spring helper bag before on several vehicles so I'm fairly familiar with how they are setup and work. Ordered this kit, good pricing, fairly fast ship..... And then the fun began. I did watch a video on the install. Looked pretty straight forward but with these latest polyurethane bags it looked like it would be a challenge to just "push" these through the springs AND get your hands in there to connect them. Oh, well I gave it a shot and sure enough one of the brass L shaped fittings for the bag just snapped off in my hand! Etrailer did address this and sent me new lines. And I'll be honest here.... threw everything back in the box and let it set for another month. Okay, let's do it again, MY WAY, this time. I dropped the rear coils completely this time, easily fed in the bags with the lines PREATTACHED, put the coils back in place and finished up the rest of the install. It's up to you....but I think just dropping the coils completely takes less time and you'll end up with a neater install. Oh, and here's the best part....these things are awesome on these long wheelbase Hyundai Santa Fe's. These SUVs don't have enough springing in the back to begin with. If you pull a trailer or hall a lot of tools, etc., in the back, trust me, you will see "extra" tire wear because that rear suspension will be sitting on the snubbers a great deal of the time. By going from around 10 to 30 psi I have a great deal of control over both ride height and improved stability in tow and heavy haul situations. I would recommend them, just take your time on the install..... 287475

Highly recommend removing the coils from the vehicle. Due to the shape of the upper support of the 2015 Hyundai SantaFe its very difficult to achieve a seal with the 90 degree valve at the top. Tried to reinstall and ultimately gave up and reinstalled the factory bump stops. The brass barb fitting connecting the blue hose kept leaking even though it was a factory seal. (I tried recutting, heating and repressing it to no avail.) Purchased other hardware (F3438) that should work to modify the kit, but havent found the time to install yet. The F3438 is a solid 90 degree fitting counting on a proven connection to the plastic tubing. IMO the kit should automatically come with this fitting. 705097

These performed exactly as stated and exactly as I needed for support with pulling a camper across the country. The ride was solid and smooth. Carried a small electric pump to check pressure every few days. I did the install my self in my garage and it was a lot of work and took a lot of time (6hrs) to get it right. Was happy with the outcome. 240324

Airbag installation wasn't very simple. Recommend taking the springs off the vehicle. this will help make the airbag installation much simpler. May take additional time, but trust me, I tried every other option. The bump stops are pretty easy to remove. Must cut them in half to get them out easily. Utilize the t connector for the air bags to ensure the same PSI is in both. 196554

I was going to use my 2011 Hyundai Santa Fe to tow my pop-up camper for the first time and during the test drive decided that the suspension was a little bouncy, so I ordered the Coil-Rites. Very happy with them. They installed quickly (I watched the installation video on e-trailer.com a couple of times) and in less than an hour I was ready to go with a much improved ride. I highly recommend the Coil-Rite's and etrailer.com. This was my second purchase and each time I was extremely satisfied with the experience. I will buy from them again. 148984

Review from a similar Coil-Rite in Vehicle Suspension


These air helper springs did exactly what we needed. We tow a Jayco Hummingbird trailer (3,750 lbs, 450-500 lb tongue weight) with our 2000 Toyota Landcruiser. Even with a weight distributing hitch the rear end squatted a bit more than I wanted. With the air helper springs installed rear end squat has been completely eliminated. Driving without the trailer feels more firm and connected to the road. The only negative is about the complexity of the installation. On the 2000 Landcruiser it requires that the rear suspension be partially disassembled. That was far more than I could handle at home. It took our neighborhood auto shop 3 hours to complete the job. Money well spent. 638942


Comments
It took some work by the shop, but it’s finally working as designed. The touting of the air hose from inside the coil spring is through an existing hole in the frame was binding and causing the driver side hose to become kinked. The shop had to enlarge the hole and one that was done there have been no more problems.

Product installed without any issues. Do suggest taking a paper towel or rag and spraying a small amount of WD40 on it and wiping around spring coils only not on air bag.

Used the Air Helper Springs on a VW Jetta to help when we put the 4 bike rack on it. Worked perfectly, kept us level when loaded and letting the air out gave us the ride when empty. Bike pump easily pumped them up when needed. I would recommend this product for anyone needing to control ride height under load or when towing to stiffen the suspension. We have had them installed for over a year. Way to go eTrailer! 240426

Review from a similar Coil-Rite in Vehicle Suspension


As a former mechanic, this was a tough install. It was a struggle to get the air bags through the springs and there was not enough room to remove the 3" piece of tubing so I installed the bag with the full length of tubing already in place. I was hoping to gain about a 2" lift, but it only raises the vehicle about 3/4 of an inch. The bags do make a noticeable difference in handling and the hitch is not so close to the ground while hauling a trailer. 103341

  • Recommended Rear Suspension Enhancement for Carrying Scooter on Rear of 2013 Hyundai SantaFe
    The Firestone # F4170 Coil-Rite Air Helper Spring kit is what I'd recommend. The single path system allows you to tailor the amount of support according to the load placed on your rear suspension. As you stated, the system won't increase the capacity of the rear suspension of your 2013 SantaFe, but it will greatly reduce the sag in your rear suspension that occurs when carrying your scooter. This system is a must in your situation, because when the rear suspension sags as yours does...

    Hi there! To mount a 4-bike rack on your 2007 Hyundai Santa Fe I recommend the Curt # 13538 trailer hitch; this is a 2" hitch that will easily allow you to use a 4-bike rack. As for a bike rack, because you are carrying children's bikes that have smaller wheelbases, the best option is going to be a hanging rack.

Weight distribution is going to help level the vehicle, improve ride quality, and help with sway. You have to go by the tongue weight of the trailer when loaded and ready to tow, plus the weight of anything loaded behind the rear axle of the vehicle. This is the total...

  • Will Firestone Coil Rite Air Helper Springs Prevent Tire Cupping or Leaning
    The Firestone # F4170 is designed to help suspend cargo carried in the rear of your Hyundai Santa Fe. There are several possible causes for tire cupping. I'd recommend having a tire shop examine the tires, suspension and alignment for anything that's worn, damaged or out of adjustment. You mention that the wheels are leaning.. this could indicate failing wheel bearings. I'd urge you to get your vehicle checked out by a mechanic. A suspension enhancement product will NOT increase the...

  • Trouble Adding Air To Firestone Coil-Rite System On 2009 Hyundai Santa Fe
    When the Coil-Rite springs are installed, an air line should have been added and run to the rear of your Santa Fe so you can add or remove air as needed. The valve is a standard air valve similar to a valve stem on a tire so it should accept any standard air fill fitting from a compressor. If you cannot get them to work send me a photo or two and I may be able to see what the issue is. Or you could return to the folks who installed the system and have them explains how to add or remove...
