  • Will Firestone Ride-Rite Red Label Air Helper Springs Work On Lifted 2016 Chevy Silverado 2500
  • The Firestone Ride-Rite Red Label Extreme Duty Air Helper Springs part # F2709 which are a fit for a 2016 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 will work just fine if you have a lift. That said, you would need an adapter to compensate for this like the Lift Spacers for Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs part # F2366.

  • Sumo Springs Versus Timbren Suspension Enhancement For 2019 Jayco Precept 31UL 22,000#
  • While both the Timbren Suspension Enhancement System # TFFF53B & # TFRF53A and the SumoSprings Rebel Custom Helper Springs # SSF-170-40-2 & # SSR-180-54-1 are both great solutions for your 2019 Jayco Precept 31UL, there are some differences to take note of. Timbren is a bit more renown in this space and while a very solid product, that strength comes with the tradeoff that the ride quality can be stiff. Made from a rigid rubber construction, it can be less forgiving and this has been...

  • How do I Pick the Right Roadmaster Active Suspension Enhancement Kit for my 2018 Ford F-150
  • We can get this figured out! The weight capacities stated in the description is the amount of weight that these springs will support. These will not add capacity to your payload or the amount you carry but instead take some of the force off of your factory suspension decreasing wear and tear on the system helping it to last longer. In my experience it also helps the handling characteristics of the vehicle by reducing the body roll of the truck. The Roadmaster Active Suspension Custom...

  • Differences Between AirLift and Firestone Helper Airbags For a 2019 Ram 2500
  • I recommend the Firestone 7,500 lb Ride-Rite Label Air Helper Springs part # F2706 for the 2019 Ram 2500 because of their durability compared to the Air Ride Helper Springs part # AL57589. Both of the brands have a 7,500 lb capacity like you mention however they are constructed differently. The Firestone bags are constructed of 4 layers of rubber compared to the 2 layers of the Air Lift springs. The Firestone bags also use a crimp rolled seal to keep the bags anchored compared to the Air...

  • TorkLift StableLoad Vs. Timbren for 2020 Ford F-350 Super Duty
  • I talked to some of our guys down in our installation bays and based on the feedback I received, I definitely recommend the Timbren Suspension Enhancement System # TFR350SDJ for your 2020 Ford F-350 Super Duty. The TorkLift StableLoad # TLA7310S work by engaging your factory lower overload springs earlier than they would otherwise, which minimize sway and assist you when hauling heavy loads. However, disengaging this system requires you to get under the truck and use a rachet (not included)...

  • Rear Suspension Helper Springs for a 2018 GMC Sierra 2500 Towing a 5th Wheel Trailer
  • Hello, I will be happy to help you select some helper springs to improve the ride and level out the truck when you are towing. Timbren springs are an easy install but they will make the ride stiffer when you are not towing. The similar SumoSprings Solo # SSR-207-47 will also level out the truck but will not be as stiff when not towing compared to the Timbren springs. Another option to consider is Roadmaster Active Suspension # RAS3611-HD. Installation is easy with this kit as...

  • Comparing the Air Lift 7500 Airbags vs Firestone 7500 Airbags for a 2015 GMC Sierra 3500
  • For your 2015 GMC Sierra 3500 Denali DRW 4x4, I recommend using the Firestone Ride-Rite Red Label Extreme Duty Air Helper Springs part # F2702 over the Air Lift LoadLifter 7500 XL Air Helper Springs part # AL57538 for two reasons. The first reason is that the Air Lift kit requires drilling into the frame (minimal) whereas the Firestone kit is completely drill free. The second reason is in regards to the construction of the airbags. The Firestone airbags use a crimp rolled design which is...

  • Comparing the Timbren SES Part TFR350SDJ and Part TFR250SDJ for a Ford F-250/F-250
  • The Timbren Suspension Enhancement System part # TFR350SDJ is correct for your 2017 Ford F-350 whereas the Timbren Suspension Enhancement System part # TFR250SDJ is for a 2017-2019 Ford F-250. The brackets on both of these systems are the same so you can use one on the other but the F-250 kit has a 4-1/2" tall spring whereas the F-350 kit has a 5-3/16" tall spring. Therefore, the F-250 kit will not engage as soon as the F-350 kit when used on a F-350. The later engagement will equate to...

  • Best Timbren Suspension Enhancement for 2019 Ford F-350 Super Duty Towing Camper Trailer
  • The best Timbren Suspension Enhancement System fory our 2019 Ford F-350 is the Timbren # TFR350SDJ which are designed with recreational towing in mind, as opposed to the kits which are meant to be used with more heavy-duty work trucks. The Timbren # TFR350SDJ that fit your '19 F-350 are double-convoluted, which means they have more cushioning and give than the single-convoluted Timbrens like # TFRTT350J.

The selection can basically be divided up into 2 categories; air bags that install inside your suspension springs and air bags that install in place of your factory bump stop. The kit that installs in your springs, part # AL60828HD, is more of a cost-effective air bag kit and while it serves a purpose, if you are going to be using the air bags quite a bit it is not what you want to go with.

I recommend going with a Firestone airbag system and an AirLift air compressor system because Firestone has the best airbags due to their crimp rolled design as opposed to a band clamp and AirLift has the best air compressors as they are made by Viair who is an industry leader in this category.

I recommend to use the SumoSprings part # SSF-170-40-2 for the front axle and part # SSR-187-40-1 for the rear axle. The SumoSprings are easier to install and do not require any upkeep.

  • Is it Normal for PSI to Double in Air Bags After Loading 2014 Ram 3500
  • I spoke with my contact at Air Lift about kit # AL57295 on your 2014 Ram 3500. He stated that what you are experiencing is normal. What I recommend is getting the truck loaded up and the trailer coupled and then adding however much air is needed to the air bags. If this is a 5th wheel trailer then at 25,900 pounds the pin weight pressing downward on the rear axle will be around 5,180 pounds so in that case it would be slightly over the capacity of this system. If you are not towing...

  • Is a Lift Spacer Required for Air Lift Airbags on a Lifted 2017 Ford F-250

In your case, you are correct in that you will not need a lift spacer to install the Air Lift LoadLifter 7500 XL Air Helper Springs part # AL57577 on your 2017 Ford F-250 as the distance between the contact point and jounce spring has not changed. This is the case for most newer Ford trucks with lift kits installed. In order to take full advantage of these airbags you might also want to consider an air compressor system like the Air Lift WirelessAIR Compressor...

  • Recommended Sumo Springs for 2018 Ford F53 Chassis 24,000 lbs
  • The SumoSprings Rebel Custom Helper Springs - 2 Piece - Front Axle # SSF-173-40-2 will support the load and compress together on your motorhome all the time when there is weight. The split design is a benefit for the individual springs when the suspension travel is greater than what a single non-split design could handle. In other words, when one wheel travels lower on a turn, the spring will not take weight off the wheel so it has more weight in contact with the road for better traction....

These airbags do use a u-bolt but they don't go around the frame like some others will. They actually just wrap around the jounce spring cup which the fifth wheel install kit does not affect. I have attached a photo of these airbags installed with a similar set of fifth wheel brackets so you can see how...

These will then bolt to the side of the vertical support on the lower bracket. If they are too long then you can just trim them but the Firestone Ride-Rite Axle Spacer Brackets for Lifted Vehicles part # F5557 and part # F5558 won't be your best options.

If you are routinely hauling cargo loads of widely varying weight then an adjustable air bag setup will give you the ability to match the bag air pressure to suit each different load. If you are towing a 5th wheel then you can get good results from a lower-cost jounce spring kit from Timbren that will...

Your only option is going to be a kit that attaches above the factory leaf spring but if there is interference of any kind then it would not be a fit.

  • Difference Between Firestone 7500 and Air Lift 7500 for 2020 GMC Sierra 3500
  • The air spring kit I recommend for your 2020 GMC Sierra 3500 is the Firestone Ride-Rite Red Label # F2709. Firestone air bags are less likely to leak and overall more reliable thanks to their rolled crimp seal that keeps the bags securely anchored to the metal end plates. This is superior to the standard band style clamp designed used on the Air Lift bags, like the LoadLifter 7500 XL Air Helper Springs # AL57541. Another advantage of the Firestone kit is that it gives you the option...

  • 2005 Ford Excursion Squats when Using Husky Weight Distribution with 9,000 Pound Trailer
  • Let's first look at the numbers. A trailer weighing 9,000 pounds will have a tongue weight in the neighborhood of 900 to 1,350 pounds. But when you calculate tongue weight for weight distribution you also have to factory in the weight of any cargo loaded behind the rear axle of your 2005 Ford Excursion. So for example if your trailer's tongue weight is 1,100 pounds and you have 200 pounds of cargo behind the rear axle of the Excursion the total tongue weight would be 1,300 pounds and...

The 5,000 lb system should be more than enough since they will be helping directly with the pin weight of your 5th wheel, but if you plan on doing a lot of towing or utilizing your pickup daily apart from towing your 5th wheel the 7,500 lb kit would be more beneficial. Both of these are compatible with an in-bed...

  • How to Choose the Correct Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement for a 2019 Ram 1500
  • If you have a 2019 Ram 1500 that is the standard pick-up truck, the correct Timbren system is the Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement System # TDR1500DQ, which were designed for standard trucks. The difference between these and the Timbren System # TDRTT1500 is that the latter is made for service trucks, like a tow truck. The reason for this is the design of the springs; if you take a look at the accompanying photo a customer sent in, you can see they are double convoluted, which means...

  • Difference Between Timbren Jounce Springs for 2019 Chevy Silverado 2500HD

For your Ford F-53 chassis with an 18,000 lb GVWR you want part # SSF-170-40-2 for the front axle and part # SSR-184-40-1 for the rear axle.

  • Which Timbren Suspension Kit for 2017 Ford F-250
  • There are 2 Timbren helper spring kits for the 2017 Ford F-250. First we have # TFR250SDJ which has an 8,600 pound capacity and fits 2- and 4-wheel drive models. And second we have # TFRTT350J which is rated for 8,000 pounds and also fits 2- and 4-wheel drive models. The higher weight capacity and the fact it's not as popular as the lower rated kit is why there is a price difference. I prefer to recommend the lower capacity kit as it will give you a smoother unloaded ride quality.

  • Jounce-style springs like the SumoSprings # SSR-117-47 you referenced for the rear axle of your 2018 Ford F-150 do a great job of allowing your truck to better support heavier loads, but they aren't going to eliminate sag. This is because there's still going to be a gap between the spring and axle, meaning the rear of the truck will need to drop a bit before they will even engage.

The reason why the SumoSprings are the best is because they not only work to reduce sway, but also keep your vehicle level and give you a smoother ride.

Both of these options will provide you with additional support that will help to reduce rear end sag while towing. They will also both work to reduce body roll, improve stability, and increase the life of your existing suspension components. The Timbren springs have a weight capacity of 6,000...

The Timbrens are made from a strong, rigid rubber while the SumoSprings are made from microcellular urethane.
