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.


Firestone Ride-Rite air spring installation

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.

Review from a similar Firestone 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

Product was an excellent addition to my 2009 F250. Install was straight forward and arrived at my house quick. Instructions were clear and is easy for anyone with basic mechanical skills. End use is for extra support with my travel trailer and levels my truck when hitched up. Airbags are easy to adjust with a hand pump you would use to air up basketballs, footballs, etc. I will continue to purchase from etrailer in the future. Great company. 707360

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

2008 Chevy 1500. Using to assist with hauling travel trailer. Product shipped quickly and arrived on time. Poorly written instructions but easily installed once I was able to sort out the installation process. Very heavy duty material. Vehicle drove great after installation. Cant wait to put it to the test with a load. Note that the reference pictures on the website are of an older design. The mounting brackets have been redesigned and probably easier installation now. 141466

Product arrived quickly. These air helper springs look very well made. They were relatively easy to install. The difficulties I had were related to the equipment and tools I had (or didn't). I only had hand tools. So the install took a lot longer than suggested. All the parts fit and matched up without interfering with any parts on the vehicle. We'll see how they stand up to use over time. 227862

Review from a similar Firestone Ride-Rite in Vehicle Suspension


Product is well engineered but difficult to install doing to the limited room. The disc that goes into the joust bumper holder needs to be looked at. the joust holder has a radiused upper edge while the disc has a square corner. a radius had to be ground on the upper edge of the disc to get it to fit. Other than this all parts fit well, brackets lined up. Kit was put on a 2015 silverado 2500hd 6.6 liter duramax. definitely a 2 man job due to the limited access. overall a good product 224103

  • Front and Rear Suspension Kits for 2008 Nissan Titan 4 x 4 with WD Hitch and Iron Bull Front Bumper
    You have an interesting combination of circumstances with your 2008 Nissan Titan 4x4 that is both towing a 7000-lb trailer with a weight distribution hitch (WDH) and also using a fairly heavy Iron Bull front bumper with winch/hitch to maneuver the trailer. In general, you can say that a WDH and a front-axle suspension helper system will tend to work against each other. The WDH will try to push some of the trailer's tongue weight (TW) forward onto the front axle while the front axle suspension...

  • Weight Distribution Hitch Recommendation for Towing 2010 Keystone Hornet 32RLS
    The best way to pick out a weight distribution system is to base it off of the loaded tongue weight of the setup when it is loaded and ready to tow. This figure also includes the weight of any cargo behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. I attached a help article on determining tongue weight for you to check out as well. You will want the loaded tongue weight of your setup to fall right in the middle of the tongue weight range of the system you use. So assuming your tongue weight...

    The correct spacer to use with the Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs part # F2355 on your 2007 Nissan Titan will be the one that matches the actual lift that the kit you installed provided. If you have an actual 6" lift in the rear then the correct spacer for you is the Lift Spacer for Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs part # F2374. However, lift kit manufacturers often overstate the actual lift so more than likely you will be looking at either part # F2370 or part # F2373. I...

  • Recommended Air Suspension System For 2012 Nissan Titan
    This has been an issue for many vehicles. Using an air suspension system on your 2012 Nissan Titan when the weight distribution system is being used is not a great idea, as they tend to cancel each other out which does no good for you. Many times the problem you are having with the excessive sag is due to the weight distribution system not being set up correctly or may even be the incorrect size. I have attached a helpful article you can check out. You can install an air bag system...

  • Can Firestone Air Bags be Used with Weight Distribution Hitch when Towing a Trailer
    You could use air bags and weight distribution at the same time. But if you are experiencing rear end sag on the tow vehicle caused by towing a trailer then the best solution is weight distribution. But not just any weight distribution system. It has to be the proper capacity. To choose a weight distribution system you will need to go by the total tongue weight of the set up. This is calculated by taking the tongue weight of the trailer, when loaded and ready to tow, and adding to that...

  • Firestone Air Bag Kit Recommendation for 2017 Ford F-250
    The Firestone kit part # F2355 is designed to fit newer Nissan Titans but would not fit your 2017 Ford F-250. Your best option though would be to sell the kit you have on eBay or list in on a Nissan forum as you'll most likely be able to get most of your money back out of it and then will be able to buy the part # F2600 which is a fit for your new truck and the cost will be offset the most.

  • Do You Hook Up Weight Distribution First or Inflate Air Bags First on a Toyota Tundra
    What you will need to do is couple the trailer to your Tundra and then use the air bags to level the vehicle as needed. Then you would engage the spring bars on the weight distribution system. You then may or may not have to adjust the air pressure in the air bags.

  • How to Find an Air Leak on a Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Spring System
    The maximum air pressure that the Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs part # F2355 can be filled to is 100 psi. In addition to max pressure there will need to be a minimum of 5 psi in the airbags at all times in order to avoid deformity. The airbags should stay inflated to the psi at which they are set to. If they lose air over time like you mentioned then you have an air leak somewhere in the system. The best way to find an air leak would involve mixing up a bottle of soap/water...

Since you have a 1-1/2 inch spacer on your truck the spacers you need for the Ride-Rite kit are part # F2536. These spacers attach between the bottom of the lower bracket and the bottom of the spring on vehicles with a 1-1/2 inch lift.

  • How Difficult is it to Install Firestone Ride Rite Air Helper Springs on a 2005 Nissan Titan
    Drilling is not required to install Firestone Ride-Ride spring, # F2355, on your 2005 Nissan Titan. Really the most difficult part is routing and cutting the lines. You have to make sure the lines will not be pinched or burned by hot components like the exhaust. To cut the lines properly. I recommend using a tubing cutter, # F9009, because you want the cleanest and straightest cut you can get. Otherwise, installation is straight forward.

  • How To Uncouple A Trailer With Spring Bars and Air Bags On Truck
    To uncouple your trailer with weight distribution, you don't really need to do anything with the air bags. The best way to take the spring bars off is to use the jack to raise the trailer and the back axle of the truck a little to reduce tension. Then remove the spring bars. You can lower the trailer with the jack and reduce the air bags to become level (if you need to). Then you can uncouple the trailer.

    The SuperSprings Custom Suspension Stabilizer and Sway Control Kit # SSA20 that you referenced can be used in conjuction with your Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs # F2355. Since the air bags for your truck sit inside the leaf springs, and the SuperSprings will install on top of your existing leaf springs, the two suspension components will not occupy the same space and can be installed together.

    It looks like the Firestone kit part # F2355 could fit on your vehicle with fifth wheel rails # C16470-204, but since it hasn't been tested we really can't say for certain. The safe bet would be the Timbrens that we know will fit. Such as the Timbren kit # TTORTUN4 for 2-wheel-drive Titans (or part # TNRTTN for 4-wheel drive models). Since these springs install in place of the OEM axle bump stops there is no conflict with 5th wheel mounting hardware. Also, since these springs do not...
