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 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-Rite 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. Drilling may be required for some applications.

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!

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!

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!

Just installed product today . Install us very simple but I do have an issue with the heat deflector. I can’t get the airbag tight enough to prevent the deflector from moving. I know this is going to cause a tattle issue that I am not happy about. I have been doing mechanic type work for over forty years, so there is an issue with how deflector goes on . I think there should be a washer installed on the bag with the deflector prior to installing nut which will allow more pressure to be placed on deflector , which will eliminate movement


Comments
Thank you for your review. This is not recommended. Adding a washer would create a larger space between the top of the air spring and the upper bracket. There is an alignment pin on that particular air spring that must fit inside the upper bracket alignment pin hole. You should be able to move the heat shield around so that the spring clamps it into place between the bead plate and the upper bracket.

The box was partial open and the heat shield was bent in a half circle. The frame bolt pieces had no hole for stud and had to use tape which was hard. They need to pack the box better.Shipping set in S L C, ut for three days and I'm only 3 hours away.

Starting with etrailer.com, they exceeded expectations. I ordered this on a Wednesday evening and I received it on Friday. That was really quick. Regarding the product, this is the second Firestone air bags I've owned (first was on a 2011 Ford F250). I was able to install them no problem. I purchased these for a 2021 Ford F350. The right side was a breeze but the left side was very tight and I had a tough time getting the bracket to sit correctly with a rigid brake line that was in the way. If that wouldn't have been there, it would have been much easier. Took me a lot longer to install that I anticipated. Will see how they work.

I had made a purchase for read air springs & also a compressor. Once I received my products, I noticed that they have sent the wrong wire harness with the compressor. It was a simple mistake. I called customer service and dealt directly with a rep named Joshua. I explained the issue and was able to send him a few photos. He was able to have the issue resolved. The new wire harness is currently bring sent to me. All said and done, I am well happy with the support. Thanks again for resolving the issue in such a quick manner! I will continue to keep doing business with etrailer.

The product itself is good. I bought a brand new kit from Etrailer. But what I recieved was a kit that had been installed once already. The manual had dirty fingerprints all over it and pink highlighter on some of the directions. The brackets had marks from previously tighten bolts. The hose looked unused. The hardware came in a ziplock covered with shrinkwrap. and the box had obviously been retaped multiple times. That being said. There was no damage to the kit or missing parts. It just sucks paying for a brand new product and getting a used one. Usually there are discounts for open box items. I still installed it because I figured its going to get enough road debri tossed at it, what's a few bolt marks. I put it on a 2020 F350 diesel with the FX4 Package. The FX4 package proved an issue with airlift (who I preferred but it wasn't offered at the time I purchased). It will fit with room to spare (once in place). It was a bit of a bear to install the drivers side bag and lower mount as one. Lots of stuff in the way! It does come close to the rear brake line on the drivers side. I slightly bent the bracket out of the way and readjusted the bag bracket to clear. I slid some 5/16" O.D. air line I had laying around the brake line in spots I thought they may rub. Other than that the kit is not to hard to install laying on your back in the garage. We will see how long they hold up. I have never had Firestone before I always ran Airlift in my other trucks. But again at the time I ordered they did not. They apparently do now for the FX4 packages. As for etrailer, I have purchased many things from them and had great experiences. From trailer tires to my 5th wheel hitch. All arrived nice and new. This was the experience I was expecting this time. Unfortunately that was not the case. So hopefully it doesn't show up for you used. But I still recommend the kit. Should be a great addition to our 5th wheel RV setup!

Just installed this airbag system. The main issue with it was a measurement needed. When assembling the bracket there are three holes. The book asks for a measurement from the top of the jounce bracket to the axle. Options were 40, 70, or 80 mm I measured 50 mm. This needs to be in the middle hole. Also the right bracket come real close to a brake line. I’ll be keeping an eye on this. Otherwise e trailer came through. The customer service is on a level you want. So no complaints.

The installation was straightforward. I’m not a mechanic and seldom work on my vehicles, but I managed to pull this one off by just following the instructions. Now having gone through this I would say some of the steps are way more difficult than need be if the designers would change just a few simple items, fore example threaded holes for some of the bolts would make the install a snap. But everything works and I’m pleased with the results.

Really nice product and well thought out. I would have given it a 5 star rating but the parts were just thrown into the box with no wrapping or protection for the nicely powder coated parts. Just add shipping and the nice powder coating is now scratched and chipped! Spent an hour with black touch-up paint to cover the missing powder coating. I did not want to have rusty brackets on my new 2020 F250!

I just installed them today on my 2020 Ford F-250 Lariat 4x4 FX4. Everything went smoothly and FIT. Thankfully the brackets all missed the multitude of brake lines and wires. Fit up was great. The key is to "follow the instructions" and cinch-up the bolts/nuts incrementally so it cinches up correctly. I left the wheels on and it took me about 3 hours.

  • Correct Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs for a 2020 Ford F-250 4x4
    The correct Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs for a 2020 Ford F-250 4x4 is part # F89ZR (Same as W217602620). This kit was redesigned specially for the 4x4 models. If you don't already have a compressor system picked out, the Air Command F3 Compressor System part # F2590 is what I recommend because it's wireless so no lines or wires need to be run inside the cab.

  • Installation of Firestone 2605 on 2017 Ford F-250 with 3 Inch Lift Block at Axle Under Springs
    Thanks for the photo. Based on your specific setup you won't need a spacer like the # F2368 because the bracket sits at the lip above the lift block. You will however need to get hardware long enough to span that extra lift block distance. Check out the 10 minute to 17 minute section of the attached video to assist with that bracket and see that hardware at the 13 minute mark. You will need to obtain that hardware locally.

For a single rear wheel model 2WD, use # F2600 or # F89ZR for a 4WD. For dual rear wheel model 2WD, use # F2600 or # F42ZR for a 4WD.

    I spoke with a tech over at Firestone and they said the # F89ZR will not fit on a vehicle with 50mm between the axle and jounce, unfortunately. With that being said, we do also have the Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 # AL23FJ. This is rated up to 5,000 pounds as well and will also fit the FX4 models of Ford trucks.

    I like to recommend air spring setups as they offer you the ability to have the exact amount of suspension support you need at any given moment. The Timbren type setups are great but it's more or less a "one size fits all" scenario and we've heard several people tell us the ride quality gets harsh. With air bag setups you can pump the bags up and have all the support you'd need (too much will be harsh) but then when not towing you can air them down to 5 psi and you have a totally unaffected...

  • Firestone Air Bags Compatibility With a 2019 Ford F-250 FX4 That Has Demco Underbed Rail System
    Yes, the Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs # F89ZR will work with your 2019 Ford F-250 FX4 and the Demco Underbed Rail and Installation Kit # DM8551009. The top air bag bracket mounts to the bottom of the frame rails so that there is no interference with the bracket on the side of your frame rail that the Demco kit uses. I recommend the Air Lift WirelessAIR Compressor System # AL74000EZ for supplying air to your air bags. This system allows you to adjust your air pressure from...

    Yes. The Firestone Ride Rite # F89ZR are confirmed to fit on the 2020 Ford F-350 Super Duty with the Tremor package.

  • Does the Firestone Ride-Rite Airbags F89ZR For a 2019 Ford F-350 Require Drilling
    The Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs part # F89ZR which are a fit for your 2019 Ford F-350 SRW 4x4 will not require any drilling for instillation. They will also work with a 5th wheel or gooseneck hitch so you won't have any issues here either. If you take a look at the attached video you will be able to see the no-drill instillation process. The print copy of the instructions gives you the option to drill to mount the inflation valves but this is not required depending on where you...

  • Availability Of Air Helper Spring Kit and Air Compressor For 2021 Ford F-250 FX4
    I would be happy to help! The Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Spring Kit # F89ZR you were looking at could possibly fit your 2021 Ford F-250 FX4 with the OEM prep package, but you will need to take a measurement first. You will need to measure from the from the top of the axle tube to the top of the jounce bumper stop. As long as you get a measurement of 40mm, 70mm, or 80mm this kit will fit perfectly. This kit gives you 5000lbs of load leveling support which is perfect for towing...

  • Can I Use Firestone Air Bags with an AirLift Compressor System on 2021 Ford F-250
    I'll start out by saying that there isn't an air bag and compressor system that's sold as a complete package, but you can definitely use Firestone bags with an AirLift compressor system without any issues; I definitely like the AirLift compressor systems a bit more, so you're on the right track with what you're looking for. I recommend using the Firestone Ride-Rite Air Bags # F89ZR because the double convoluted bags are more resistant to rupturing, and they'll do a great job of fighting...
