Will The Firestone Airbags Work with the Curt Gooseneck Hitch on a 2016 Chevy Silverado 2500

Question:

Im looking at a Curt under bed Gooseneck for my 5th wheel With an Anderson hitch and also want to get air bags. My question is can I install both the Curt and Air Bags as they seem to both mount underbody to the frame in the same location. Vehicle is 2016 Chevy 2500 6.0L

Yes, the Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs part # F2596 will work with the Curt Gooseneck Hitch part # C61301-52 for overbed and part # C607-604 for under bed and are a confirmed fit for your 2016 Chevy Silverado 2500. The gooseneck hitch mounts on the outside frame rails and the Firestone airbag kits mount underneath the frame rail hence the compatibility.

In order to operate the airbags from inside the vehicle, I recommend using the Firestone Air Command I part # F2158. The Air Command I kit comes with a standard duty compressor, single path air valve, single needle gauge face, and all other equipment needed for installation.

A have attached a few review and installation videos of these products for you as well.

Unfortunately none of the AirLift LoadLifter Airbag Kits we have confirmed to fit your vehicle will work with the Curt Gooseneck Trailer Hitch or any other gooseneck hitch. The AirLift kits use a u-bolt to attach the upper airbag bracket to the frame which interferes with the mounting location of a gooseneck hitch.

Firestone uses a 3-ply rubber for their airbags whereas AirLift only uses a 2-ply rubber. In addition to material, the AirLift airbags attach the rubber sleeve to the plates via steel clamps whereas Firestone molds the rubber sleeve to the plates. Lastly, Firestone is recognized as the industry leader in airbag and airbag accessories.
