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 Extreme Duty 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.

Video Transcript for Review of Firestone Vehicle Suspension - Rear Axle Suspension Extension - F95FV

Hello everybody, this is Jeff at etrailer.com. Today we're gonna take a look at the Firestone Ride-Rite Red Label extreme duty air helper springs for your rear axle. Now this is a custom fit part. It is designed to fit the 2017 and newer Ford F250, F350, and F450 4 wheel drive trucks. And on a custom fit part like this, I do recommend for you to go to our website use the fit guide, put in your year and model vehicle. It'll show you if this'll work for your application.

Now these air springs will maximize safe load carrying capacity. They do increase stability and improve the ride quality of your vehicle. They are designed to install between your truck's frame and its rear suspension. This will help keep your truck level when you're hauling a heavy load, improves your steering control and braking when you're hauling or towing. It'll even help level your headlight beams and even help reduce tire wear.

This kit does maintain even load distribution with air pressure, it'll level off any off-center loads. And basically these airbags do adjust manually side-to-side with the individual inflation valves. The adjustable air pressure in these air springs is five PSI to 150 PSI. This does reduce strain on your rear suspension, prevents permanent sagging and excessive friction in your leaf springs, helps provide maximum load support and durability with rubber construction. And you can see the springs themselves are a double convoluted design.

Now this does include everything laid out here on the table. It's all the materials necessary for installation, includes all your brackets, your air springs themselves, all the hardware you need, the airline. We mentioned the separate valves for manual inflation. Now we do also offer switches and gauges, compressors and air tanks, which we do sell separate on our website. And those parts will allow for simple inflation or deflation from inside your cab.

These parts are made in the USA. Few specs on it. The load-leveling capacity is 7,500 pounds. One note I do wanna mention, the Ride-Rite springs will not increase your truck's weight carrying capacity, so you do want to make sure to not exceed the manufacturer's recommended weight limit. But that should do it for the review on the Firestone Ride-Rite Red Label extreme duty air helper springs for your rear axle..

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


Bags work as advertised. I also ordered the T fitting. System leaked from day one. I was told it would until May: June of 22 to receive new Firestone T fitting. No mention that a Ride Right T would work( it was 1/2 price) Finally ordered a Ride Right T, received it 3-5 business days. System now holds air. Sent old Firestone T back for refund, no credit on card on file, been 60 days or more. etrailer staff dropped the ball on this one. Product is good, etrailer service was poor on this order


Comments
I will have our Customer Service team reach out to you. I see that the T fitting part # AL21838
Air Lift Union Tee for 1/4" Air Lines
$6.60
was the fitting that you ordered. I am glad that it is working for you. We typically would not recommend it only because it was made by a different manufacturer and the part would not have been tested with the Firestone system.

Outstanding kit. Install was fairly easy. Passenger side frame bracket was had to be bent open a hair to fit over the vehicle frame. Installed with the Air Lift 73000EZ compressor on a 2019 Ram 2500 4x4. Towing a 5th-wheeel with 2300lbs pin weight (11,000lbs trailer). The complete system works beautifully. Can adjust the ride height of the truck to properly level the trailer. Stable tow during high cross winds. Have over 10,000 miles towing in the past year. Very happy with this system.

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.

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

Still going strong!!!

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


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.

I have no complaints about the product. The instructions were good, everything went together without a problem. The only reason I didn't give a 5 star review is because my bags had been previously installed and apparently returned. There were installation marks on the brackets and several of the hardware bags had been opened. Most of the hardware was loose inside the box and a few washers slipped out. I paid full price for something that wasn't brand new.

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


etrailer is my "go to" outlet for really great quality parts and information when it comes to pulling my boat and carrying a heavy camper. But wait there's more... Check out their YouTube posts on proper install practices for their products after purchase. The support I get is second to none!! I have lost count of the products I have purchased from etrailer. This is my 4th or 5th set of airbags (I buy a new truck every 12-24 months). With my purchase, I automatically order Torklift tie-downs and Firestone Ride-Rite extreme duty air helper springs. These are the top quality parts you can get for securing your camper and keeping your truck at or close to preload ride height. Thank you etrailer for making it so easy for me by not only supplying quality products but also quality support!!!

Had this system installed on a 2014 F-350. Huge improvement when pulling 5th wheel trailer. Truck no longer hits helper springs when hitting those 2-3 inch highway joints at speed. I run it it at about 60 psi.

The 90 degree air fittings could be longer. As they bottom out on mounting plate when clocked to correct positions

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.

Ordered Firestone air-assist springs that ended up back ordered ... George J reached out to me to explain the situation and kept me posted on the status checking with me when they were ready to ship ... so very good and rare customer service that is greatly appreciated ... good job!


Comments
Air springs have worked well allowing adjusting hitch height to level trailer tend to hold air pressure well minor fit issue when installing passenger side brackets that requires grinding ca. 18 of truck suspension bracket to allow installation.

the service was one of the best that I have ever ordered from. They gave me suggestions on different products that would fit my 2017 3500 GMC Denali for the use that I needed. The instructions with the airbags was right on as for showing and telling you what to do and installing them. Very Happy with the whole thing and would buy from them again. Thanks Gregg G
