Air Bag Helper Springs for a 2017 Chevy Silverado 2500 4x4


Picked up a 2017 Silverado 2500, 4x4, and I want to add air bags. What else do you recommend? A compressor kit?

For your 2017 Chevy Silverado 2500 4x4 I do recommend the Firestone Ride-Rite helper springs # F2596. I have included a link to a video showing an example installation of this kit for you.

Adding an on-board compressor system is an excellent idea any time air bags are used on a vehicle. It will allow you to add or remove air from the comfort of the truck cab so you will not have to have a separate compressor.

There are different compressor systems you can use. If you are looking for the best option that has the most functions I recommend the Air Command F3 system # F2581. It has a standard duty compressor and a wireless remote to control the system from up to 50 feet away.

For an analog, wired system I recommend # F2178. It does not have an air tank and uses a standard duty compressor but still allows you to add or remove air for each bag individually. I have linked a video featuring this system for you.
