Recommended Air Springs For 2013 Silverado 3500HD With 6.5 Lift


I want to install F2596 Ride Right Air Helpers on my lifted Silverado, and I am wondering how to determine which size ride-rite spacers are required? Can you provide the dimensions of the F2702 so I can measure the distance between the jounce stop base and the axle on my truck and figure out the difference?

For your 2013 Chevy Silverado 3500 with 6-1/2 Inch lift, the Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs - Double Convoluted - Rear Axle # F2702 are a confirmed fit. You will need to use a lift spacer with this application based on the amount of axle lift only. If you have 6-1/2 inches of axle lift, you will use the Lift Spacers for Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs - Vehicles w/ 6" Lift # F2375. You will want to measure from the upper and lower brackets on the truck, as it should measure between 11-1/2 and 12-1/2 inches.

You might also be interested in an on-board compressor system like part # F2158 for the standard-duty or # F2097 for the heavy duty compressor. A compressor system would allow you to adjust the air pressure in the system using a rocker switch installed on the dash. No need to manually fill the air bags.
