Air Bag Helper Springs for a 2012 Ram 2500 with 5 Inch Lift


Hello. I just lifted my truck and I tow a 33 foot travel trailer on a regular basis. I want to make sure that I buy the correct setup so I will give you the specs on what my truck has. 2012 Ram 2500 SLT, 6.7 diesel, 5 inch rough country long arm lift, 35x12.50x20 federal couragia tires, 20x12 with -44 offset moto metal rims. Please guide me on the correct system and spacers that I need to purchase.


Expert Reply:

If the lift on your 2012 Ram 2500 is a body lift where the frame is still the same distance from the axle as a stock truck then you would not have to use any spacers when installing helper springs. But if it is a suspension lift, you would need spacers equivalent to the amount of lift (or as close as possible) in this case 5 inches.

I recommend the Firestone Ride-Rite kit # F2299 for your truck. If the truck does have a suspension lift then you would also need spacer kit # F2373 for the 5 inch lift on the truck.
