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 vehicle level, maintain even load distribution and increase stability. 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 and improve braking and handling. The air springs also help to level your headlight beams and reduce wear on your tires.


Firestone Ride-Rite air spring airline installation

Adjustable Air Pressure

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 vehicle 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 vehicle's bumper to provide easy access to the manual inflation valves.


Firestone Ride-Ride air spring components

Air Spring Construction

Firestone's double-convoluted Ride-Rite air springs are designed to give you maximum load support and enhance the performance and ride comfort of your vehicle. The rubber springs provide cushioning between your suspension components and operate at up to 100 psi. 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 Ride-Rite kit includes custom-fit brackets that connect to your axle and frame. The brackets provide the mounting points for the air springs.

Not very happy with the purchase. Packaging was sub par, 28 lbs of steel and airbags dumped into a 12x12x12 box, no packaging material. Airbags had caps over the air inlet, but both caps came off in shipping. Aluminum inserts were MISSING the threaded holes for the alignment studs. Had to drill and tap the 4 inserts (see pictures), thankfully I had a 10-24 tap on hand. Instructions are not clear in terms of 3/8” washer usage, the list of parts at the top of each page shows the incorrect amount of washers vs what is shown in the instructions, as a result not enough washers for the install, one again I had some at home thankfully, finally, the 3/8” bolts are not long enough to go through the lower brackets and provide enough thread engagement for the nylock nuts. There is no bolt stick out after assembly. The air line is very flimsy and is easy to link. Overall the only thing I liked about the kit was the air fill line bracket and the lower clamps that wrap the axle. I would likely go with the airlift product if I could do it again. Hopefully it functions well. Will find out when I put 4000 lbs over the axle.


Comments
Thank you for your review. The instructions say the frame nuts may not have the second hole. You can tape them in place while you secure the upper bracket. The all thread is a temporary use during the installation of the upper bracket and is then removed.

Review from a similar Ride-Rite in Vehicle Suspension


Installed easily, and used them to pull a heavy 24’ trailer across the country with a half ton pickup. The only thing I’d like to see is a manual leveling system with gauges and a compressor on board. I use a hand pump specifically for motorcycle air suspension to make the fine adjustments required to set the pressure. Works well. They did their job perfectly.


Comments
After a year, they are a great aid in hauling a d towing with my half ton. No more sagging rear suspension when loaded. Yes, the rear ride firmed up a little even with only five pounds pressure. That’s a small trade-off.

How many stars (1-5, 5 being Excellent) would you give the product: 4 ½ on both items Product Review: Installed the Firestone Air Command Compressor system and Firestone Ride-Rite helper rear Air Bags on my 2020 F-250 Super Duty (Lariat Sport Edition). The install was pretty straight forward and took 5 hours for all components. Put my truck up on the rack and removed factory jounce bumper and installed the upper bracket of the air spring with no issues. Installed bottom bracket and bag again with no issues (Pic drivers side bag). Had to make a slight cut out to the bottom axle strap bracket on the passenger side to account for brake line (Pic passenger side axle bracket). Ran all airlines (had to remove spare tire for easy access) to the passengers side frame. Mounted the compressor and control unit to the passenger side frame (Pic Compressor mount) Covered all airlines with 1/2" wire loom to protect the lines. Checked all connections and no leaks. Downloaded Air Command App and tested the system. I have not had any issues pulling my 16,000 lb 5th wheel over the past year.(Pic Truck camper) Overall I am very impressed with the system I installed and the great customer service I received when ordering the product!

Just got done installing the Firestone airbag kit for my 2020 Chevy 2500 LTZ Z71 crewcab Duramax truck. Install went smooth, with no issues at all. I had the Firestone airbags on a previous truck and really liked them. I got the kit for a 5th wheel trailer.

Prompt delivery with good communication as regards order. Installation was straightforward as per instructions although I didn't use the included 3/8" x 5 1/2" carriage bolts for the lower bracket. Purchased 3/8 " x 3" Grade 8 bolts which did not require shortening and were easier to work with for clearance of brake line &etc. Air lines and connections worked great and No Leaks! Currently running 10# pressure but have not tested with a heavy load as of yet. Thanks


Comments
Air bags have performed as designed with no issues for a year. Additional weight handled well and general ride and handling improved. Upgraded to E Series tires and Bilstein shocks and truck works well on and offroad.

Review from a similar Ride-Rite in Vehicle Suspension


The ride improvement is great and the additional bracket PN F5722 was not needed for my 2016 F 250 CCSB diesel because the module in question is behind where the airbag mounts on the frame, see attached pics. I did exhaustive research on whether or not the bracket was needed and could not find a definitive answer. When the box arrived one of the saddle brackets was protruding through the side of the box and the box looked like it had been opened and re-taped. I opened the box and found that the hardware bag was opened so I took inventory of everything and it all appeared to be there going by the list in the installation manual. I have the factory puck system so I did have to notch a small section of the hitch frame to allow for the passenger side upper mount bolt to pass through. When it came time to secure the bags to the upper mounts, the supplied nuts were the wrong thread pitch, I ended up having to source two nuts locally to continue with the installation. Overall the installation was not bad, I removed the spare tire and backed up on a pair of ramps. I have not pulled my 5th wheel since I installed the airbags, I will update the review once I do.

Review from a similar Ride-Rite in Vehicle Suspension


Installed as described in the Video on a f-150 2019 Lariat, max tow package 4x4. I have not loaded up the bed and towed yet so they are set to 5 psi and are riding fine. I have used the ride rites on other trucks and very happy with them. Now note you need to monitor them when not loaded as the should be kept at 5 psi unloaded. I also bought the wheel liners and mud flaps. Wheel liners needed to be cut so they would not run on the air bags.


Comments
Great, I did tow with my TT, truck was almost at max GVWR. Airbags were set to about 50psi to return factory rate. The ride was very good and controlled

Review from a similar Ride-Rite in Vehicle Suspension


I mounted the Firestone airbag system on my 2008 Toyota Tacoma pickup. It was not as easy as the video makes it look (especially on the drivers side) but, it it turned out great. I mounted the compressor in the compartment behind the passenger seat behind the driver (see pic). I mounted the gauge and switch in the compartment between the driver and passenger (see pic). The airbag pictures are when they were holding 70 lbs pressure checking for air leaks. The first picture of the pickup is with 5 lbs air pressure in the bags and the second is with 50 lbs air pressure in the bags. When driving with 5 lbs in the bags it has the normal smooth ride and does a good job at 30 lbs of keeping the back end from sagging when I pull my boat.

Review from a similar Ride-Rite in Vehicle Suspension


Installed on a 2016 2500 GMC. First and foremost etrailer customer service has been great. Called and asked a few questions and they were able to answer them. Tow a 35ft bumper pull rv quite a bit. Have always had a light front end, primarily due to loading of the trailer and truck bed. Rv stores set you up level, but your empty on both. Loaded it rides different. I adjusted my Husky center line hitch but that didn't help. Tourqed the trailer too much. Install was easy. Have a helper. Watch the video etrailer has provided, they explain the process very well. Bolt everything together, test fit, make your alignment marks then tourqe all the necessary bolts. Pull the spare off and the heat shield. Gives you ample room. All in all easy to install and definatly gets rid of body roll. Will post a follow up after I pull my trailer. Good Luck and enjoy!! Thanks again etrailer

Outstanding product!!! Well made and easy to install on my 2010 Tundra TRD. Just basic tools needed so anyone can do it!! Take your time and it is a fun 2 hour project. Made towing my trailer so much nicer. Level ride with comfort and good maneuverability. Think I am going to add these to my other GMC work truck as well.

Review from a similar Ride-Rite in Vehicle Suspension


Package came In a timely manner and was packaged very nicely. Just installed tonight on my 2002GMC 2500 HD 8.1L. install took about two hours. Hardest part was getting the old bump stops off the truck. Instructions were easy to follow and understand also included torque specs for each nut. After install was done I aired to 15psi and drove the truck and was not disappointed. Came back to the house and hooked my 8000lb rated trailer up with 7000lb skid loader on it and 30psi in bags the truck was level. Pulled it around town and on highway and drove a pulled great. This is a great product and glad I purchased. I will do a follow up after the winter and let everyone know how they Do in winter w 2500lbs of salt in the bed all winter.

Installation went well only having to cut one u-bolt a bit short to clear a OEM sway bar on my 2018 F250 FX4. I worked on my garage floor with the frame jacked up a few inches to create clearace. No leaks & no effect on empty truck ride At 5 psi. I havent put my 3 K pounds of truck camper and gear on the truck yet so my 5 eval is based on ease of install and quality. Remember to chock those front tires if working on the floor. Also i put electric split coming over my air line because the squirrels at my house like to chew!

I have used these air bags on other trucks and they make a big difference when towing. No more bottoming out the suspension and the trailer doesn’t even feel like it is back there. I put these on a 2019 ram 3500 single rear wheel cab and chassis. You do have to drill 4 holes in the frame for each side and there are brake and fuel lines on the drivers side. It took me a half a day to install and I have a decent shop with a lift. There was nothing hard, it just took time to get things out of the way and drill the holes. I did cut 2x4s and jig up the brackets to help install.

Review from a similar Ride-Rite in Vehicle Suspension


After a year of use I am still very impressed with the reliability and functionality of these bags. The Bluetooth compatibility of the compressor unit which allows the user to increase or decrease pressure via the phone app is great, no wiring to run into the cab, or mounting a control head under the dashboard is fantastic. Run these at 10psi for everyday driving with no noticeable change in the ride of the truck. I only have to air them up to 40psi to stiffen the suspension perfectly when towing my 34’ travel trailer. Would recommend this product within it hesitation!


Comments
This is the second set of these I have had. I purchased a new truck and I am not disappointed. Installed the first set my self in an afternoon, also installed the compressor as well and was impressed with the quality of the materials and the fitment. Had this installed by the hot rod shop up the street, who recommended the product when we talked previously. He loves the Bluetooth phone app for the compressor and has started to recommend it to his other customers. Would highly recommend this product and your company to anyone considering the purchase of a like product.

These air helpers, installed on my single axle F-250 pulling a fifth-wheel RV, does everything it is supposed to do. The ride is more level, much smoother, and easier to control during terrible interstate bumps. The remote control and pump are definitely a plus, however, place the controller in a good location for proper communication. (Sometimes I have to stand outside my truck to use it.) Still great after one year of usage!

Installation was not hard at all, I definitely recommend having an impact wrench handy though. The airbags definitely improved how my toy hauler towed!! They took out all sag and reduced the roughness on torn up highways. The pic shows my truck back to factory ride height with the bags.

I have traded this truck since then, however they improved my ride and stance every time I pulled my trailer.

They are not a cure-all; but do help when hauling heavy loads, or towing a travel trailer with my 2019 Toyota Tacoma TRD Off-Road Pick-up. Working fine after a year. Had a problem with leaks and pressure drop at first. Had to cut and re-install air lines and connectors at the airbag end, several times. But eventually got them to hold pressure. Now only slight air loss over several days. They really helped to prevent sagging rear end, and minimize bucking when towing a small travel trailer with my Toyota Tacoma. I still finally had to go with a load distribution hitch with anti-sway device to completely minimize sway while towing.

Review from a similar Ride-Rite in Vehicle Suspension


It was an easy install and everything fit OK. I removed the spare tire to make it easy. I had to slightly bend the brake hose bracket on both sides and another bracket just slightly to clear the rear spring clamp at the bottom of the spring. I carry my 1,400 pound Honda Pioneer 700 and pull my travel trailer with a 400 pound hitch weight. I have your weight distribution hitch for some of the hitch weight.

Still working great. I have them on my 1999 Ford too and those still work great.

This system I installed on my 2012 Ford F-450 dually pickup. I love it!! I replaced a air bag system that I had put on by so called professionals. It was terrible. It mounted under the spring shackles. It helped when puling a heavy loaded trailer but rode terrible otherwise. The system I bought from e-trailer uses air bags under the rear axles. It handles heavy loads when air up to 90 psi and rides smooth when empty at 25 psi. I recommend it highly.

Great. Love it more.

  • Air Bag and Compressor Kit Recommendation for 2020 Ford F-350
    The best air bag kit we have for your 2020 Ford F-350 is the Firestone kit part # F89ZR if you have a single rear wheel axle or # F88ZR for if you have a dually. The Firestone bags are just higher quality than the competition. Mainly due to them being 4-ply vs. others being only 2-ply. Unlike other kits these are also compatible with in-bed hitches like fifth wheels and goosenecks. For a compressor kit then the heavy duty part # F2097 will make inflating the bags and maintaining them...

And the best air bags are going to be from Firestone because they are made with four layers of reinforced rubber, which is a thicker and more durable construction than other air bags, which have just two layers. This means, particularly when towing a 5th wheel trailer, you will get the best support possible for...

    I recommend using the Firestone Dual Air Command III # F2198 for your 2019 Ford F-350. It includes an super heavy duty compressor that will better handle the constant running needed to fill up tires. A 1 gallon air tank and 25' coiled air hose will allow you to store air and easily reach your tires that need filled. The dual gauge in cab controller will allow you to control the air pressure at each air bag of the Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs # F88ZR. The Universal Air Tank...

  • Air Bag Helper Springs For a 2020 Ford F-350 Super Duty 4x4 Dually
    I recommend the Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs part # F88ZR which are designed to fit the 2020 Ford F-350 Super Duty Dually 4-Wheel Drive. The Firestone air bags are durable and created from 4 layers of rubber construction so they are less likely to puncture than the other options. These particular air bags have a 5,000 lb capacity that will help to level out the load and eliminate vehicle rear sag. I have attached an installation video for your reference. I highly recommend...

  • Air Suspension Enhancement Kit Recommendation for 2019 Ford F-350 with OEM Rail Kit
    For your 2019 Ford F-350 that has the factory fifth wheel rail kit we have the Firestone kit part # F88ZR which is a confirmed fit and is also designed to fit with the in-bed rail kit you have as well. For a compressor kit then I'd recommend the Firestone Air Command I part # F2097 because it comes with a heavy duty compressor which will inflate the bags quicker and it comes with a gauge you will mount on the interior of your vehicle to allow you to easily monitor/inflate/deflate as needed.

  • Air Bag Helper Springs for a 2020 Ford F-350 4x4 Dually
    The air bag helper springs I recommend for a 2020 Ford F-350 4x4 Dually are the Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs part # F88ZR. These Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs are actually designed specifically for models with dual rear wheels so there will be no issues here. Furthermore, the Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs will work with models that have a factory in-bed hitch or will be adding an aftermarket in-bed hitch which can actually be a pretty big issue for some air bag...

  • Air Helper Springs Air Bags That Fit 2020 Ford F-350 Super Duty
    We have air springs that will fit a 2020 Ford F-350 Super Duty, but the part you mentioned is only a fit for certain model year Chevy/GMC trucks. The best air spring air bags are from Firestone because they are the most well-constructed with four layers of reinforced rubber, which is double the amount of similar bags. The fit of the Firestone Ride-Rite on your 2020 Ford F-350 Super Duty is going to depend on if you have 2WD or 4WD and if you have a dually (four rear wheels) or the standard...

  • Air Bag & Compressor for 2020 Ford F-350 Super Duty Dually 4WD Towing 5th Wheel Trailer
    Ok, let's go ahead and start with the air bags for your 2020 Ford F-350 dually (which I'm assuming is a 4WD), and the best option that is both compatible with your dually and 5th wheel hitch is the Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs # F88ZR. These Firestone air bags - which are only compatible with 4WD models - are absolutely the best because they are the most well-constructed air bags available. The Ride-Rite air bags are made with four layers of reinforced rubber, which is a thicker,...

  • Air Helper Spring Fit for 2022 Ford F-450 DRW King Ranch
    Air Lift doesn't list an application for the 2022 Ford F450 DRW pickup, but the good news is that Firestone does. This is actually preferable, because Firestone joins the rubber air springs to the upper and lower plates using a roll crimp, which is stronger and therefore more reliable in the long run than the band clamps Air Lift uses to join the bags to the plates. For a system that provides 5000 lb of support, use part # F88ZR. A 7500 lb kit is also available as part # F42ZR. You...

  • Which Air Bag Suspension Kit Is Best For 2021 Ford F-450 Super Duty 4x4?
    I have a solution for you, however, the Air Lift LoadLifter 7500 XL Air Helper Springs - Rear Axle # AL57575 are not confirmed to fit your 2021 Ford F-450 Super Duty 4X4. A rear air suspension kit that is confirmed to fit your vehicle is Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs - Double Convoluted - Rear Axle # F88ZR.

  • Does Magnaflow Exhaust Fit With Airbags Installed On 2017 Ford F-350
    I think that the MagnaFlow Black DPF Series Filter-Back Exhaust System # MF17067 will work just fine with Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs # F88ZR on your 2017 Ford F-350. We haven't had that exact combination in the shop so I can't confirm it. However since the MagnaFlow uses the factory mounting points, it should sit relatively in the same position as the factory exhaust. Looking at the mounting locations of the air bags, and the exhaust, it looks like it will fit with no issues. I...

  • Rear Suspension Enhancement Recommendation for 2019 Ford F-350 with Camper
    An air bag kit will be the best way to give you the additional suspension support you need from your 2019 Ford F-350 with a heavier camper. You'd need part # F2600 for if you have a 2 wheel drive truck or part # F88ZR for if you have a 4 wheel drive truck. Air bag kits allow you to add the exact amount of support you need and then when not carrying the weight of the camper you can deflate the bags and have a totally normal ride quality. For a compressor kit then the heavy duty part...

  • Air Bag Suspension Recommendation for 2020 Ford F350 4x4 DRW
    For your F350 Dually, I'd recommend the Firestone Ride-Rite # F88ZR. The kit has a 5000 lb capacity, features a no-drill installation and is compatible with an in-bed gooseneck or 5th wheel hitch. I'd also recommend an on-board compressor system like # F2219. A compressor system will give you real time at your fingertips control of your air bags so you can fine tune the air pressure in the system to the load you're carrying. The # F36ZR air spring system you've looked at isn't compatible...

  • Replacement Axle Strap Bracket for Firestone Ride-Rite on 2017 Ford F-350
    I have a solution for you, but it looks like the # F2135821163 works with older Ford trucks and Ride-Rite kits. For your 2017 Ford F-350 the correct Ride-Rite kit is the Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs - Double Convoluted - Rear Axle # F88ZR, and the correct axle strap from that kit is the Replacement Axle Strap Bracket for Firestone Ride-Rite Air Springs - Qty 1 # F74CR.
