Recommended Airbag Kit for a 2009 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD


Going to add airbags to my truck, getting a slide in camper. I also pull a 34foot 5th wheel with this truck using a BandW goose neck hitch.

The best airbags we have for your 2009 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 are the Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs part # F2250. These airbags will do an excellent job of helping maintain stability and support when you are using your truck bed camper or towing your 5th wheel trailer. They will also not interfere with the frame brackets you have for your hitch which can be a problem for some airbag kits. I recommend Firestone airbags over Air Lift airbags as they have a stronger sleeve and will withstand more abuse.

In order to really receive the full beliefs of an airbag kit you are going to want to add a compressor as this will eliminate the need to continuously get in and out of the truck to raise or lower the airbags. For this, I recommend the Firestone Air Command I Compressor System part # F2097. We also have air shocks that can be used in conjunction with the airbags and compressor system using the Firestone Ride-Rite LS Rear Shock Absorbers part # F4353.

I have attached an install video on both the airbag kit and air compressor for you as well.
