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.

1996 Chevrolet C/K Series Pickup

One of the best things I ever purchased for my 1996 1/2 ton Chevy truck. With only ten pounds of PSI in an empty truck bed, the ride quality of the vehicle is improved dramatically. With a load in the bed, the ride level and stability is greatly improved. Me and a buddy had it completely installed in about four hours. I mounted the air fill valves separately, so I can balance the level from side to side also. 549565

1993 Chevrolet C/K Series Pickup

I installed this on my 93 Chevy Z71 shortbed about one year ago and it is working great. The short wheelbase allows for more strength but the hwy springs are too soft for heavy loads. This airbag system allows me to haul a full load of wood on my 10k trailer and the pickup bed loaded as well. I carry a hand air pump in the toolbox to adjust the air bags whenever needed. This suspension mod allows me to haul maximum loads out of the woods and makes for a smooth and safe ride on the Hwy. 316278

Review from a similar Ride-Rite in Vehicle Suspension


Opened the box and in awe, I called my service guy, but he couldn't get to it for a week, so I started in. Rolled my truck up on some blocks. Removing the stock rubber bumper was easy. Then the installation. Bolting the upper housing onto the frame was the first job and was easy, except I forgot to include the spacer. So two steps later I had to unbolt it , insert the spacer and re tighten it. The rest of it went well and is now ready for the air line. Quit for the day and this morning will install the other side, which should go much easier now that I have learned from the first side. So it looks hopeful that even I can accomplish this. As a 75 year old retired surgeon that is saying a lot! Stay tuned for next installment which should review performance. 483120

Review from a similar Ride-Rite in Vehicle Suspension


I don't typically do reviews but I was so excited about these I just had to share. installation was fine, it took me about 2 hours. Watch the installation videos, it helps. I thought I needed a 3/4 ton truck just to put some heavy loads in my bed a few times a year, but not anymore! See the picture I loaded. that is my Silverado 1500 with approximately 1,500lbs in the back (there are a bunch of concrete curbs in the back). Can you tell, I can't. That's with only 30lbs of air in the springs. I have used air shocks in the past but forget that, no comparison. I will say I did not get the series to fill itself which I will probably upgrade to soon, but for now, these are exceeding my expectations. 603952

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

Im still happy with the air bags. I do a lot of towing. From a camper to horse trailers. After hooking up either trailer I just add in the right of air and its a noticeable difference. I did add a T-fitting to add air at the same time to the bags. I own and drive tractor trailers and knew air bags are the way to go with my little 150. The Firestone product has held up and did recommend them who asked about them when they saw them. Also told them where I got them.

    For air helper springs to use on your 1994 Chevrolet C/K Series Pickup 3500, I recommend going with the Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs, part # F2025. These are double convoluted springs which means they will last a little longer and wear better than other styles of air helper springs.

    The Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs # F2025 are the correct air springs for your 1998 Chevy Silverado 3500, however according to my technical contact at Firestone you should not be experiencing any sway issues. The most probable cause of the sway is the inflation level does not work well with your set up.

  • Why Would Rear Suspension of Truck Sit Up too High After Suspension Enhancement Install
    How much air pressure are you running in the air bags? Try lowering the air pressure and you should see the truck return back to the stock height. The only way an air spring system will add height to a vehicle is if there is enough air pressure in the bags to raise the rear end.
