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.

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. Drilling may be required for some applications.

This is the second RV I have added the Firestone Ride Rite suspension components. In addition to load leveling, I use them to gain additional off road clearance and easy parking lot leveling adjustment. With over 20 years of use, these durable air bags have served me well. Firestone delivers top quality products that are extremely road worthy. Thanks eTrailer for great products at a fantastic price! 595091

Review from a similar Ride-Rite in Vehicle Suspension


Great product well packed no damage and easy installation. Around two hours without impact wrench. Would recommend impact wrench. Differently would recommend to anyone who hauls heavy loads or trailers. Keeps truck level. Also and maybe must important Emily my customer service representative was very helpful, friendly, and great to work with very professional. Thank you for all your help. Have a great day and be safe. . 773364

Review from a similar Ride-Rite in Vehicle Suspension


Package arrived in good shape and when promised. Installation was very straight forward as per the instructions. The only difficulty I had was threading the large nylocnut on to the airbag. Because of the limited access and view it was very difficult especially with the brass fitting already screwed into the airbag stem. I removed the airbag, removed the brass fitting then screwed the large nut over the stem several times. This made it easier to install the nut once everything was put back together as per the instruction and complete my installation. 638817

2016 Toyota Tundra Crewmax 4x4 - Installation was easy. Took about 1.5 hours. I pull a 27ft. travel trailer and these springs greatly improve the towing experience. Firestone Ride Rite air springs are a must have! 398929

These springs improved my towing experience. I would not pull a trailer using a half ton truck without using these springs.

Review from a similar Ride-Rite in Vehicle Suspension


The air bags are the second purchase for this product for two different Toyota trucks in three years. I chose etrailer because they are thorough, always right and provide excellent customer service. The bags worked well with my bumper pull last year at around 20 psig and now with our new fifth wheel at 55 psig. Both sets of Firestone bags have been excellent. The Toyota Tundra pulls our Grand Design very well. We drove from South Carolina to New Mexico with no problems and a smooth ride thanks to etrailer and Firestone! 409027

Review from a similar Ride-Rite in Vehicle Suspension


Very good fitment, so you do get what you pay the premium for. My only concern is some sort of regulator would go a long way to getting the pressure equalized between the bags. This is not something I expected, but will probably add later to enhance the ease of use and warranted that fifth star. Highly recommend as advertised regardless! 635267

Review from a similar Ride-Rite in Vehicle Suspension


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. 595195

Review from a similar Ride-Rite in Vehicle Suspension


Easy to install. Directions are great, as are the videos. I also ordered and used the T piece to make it easy. Just pulled my trailer and definitely noticed a difference. Very smooth over bumps. Just FYI, even at only 5 PSI (minimum recommended) it raised the rear of my truck almost an inch compared to the height before install. Not a big deal, but if you leveled the front of your truck like I did to get rid of the rake, you will now have some rake again. Not a big deal, but just be aware. I used the lift spacers (item F2536) because I have 1.5" spacer blocks on my leaf springs. I basically hook up the trailer or load the bed, watch the back end drop, then hit the air bags with the air compressor until the truck is level again. Rides like a dream. Would definitely purchase again. 454972


Comments
Still works great after a year. Definitely makes a difference in the ride quality when you have a heavy load. No leaks. I used the T so only have 1 valve to mess with. I like having the ability to dial in a little bit of rake in the truck Had previously leveled the truck by cranking the torsion bars in front, also have 1.5 blocks in rear. 2007 Duramax
