Will Airbags Fit on a 2018 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 with 5th Wheel Hitch Installed


I have installed this on my truck and want to know if Firestone Ride-Rite airbags will fit. My previous truck had these airbags and the mounting U-bolts went over the frame, it seems like the frame rails would interfere with the U-bolts.

Yes, the Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs part # F2596 will fit your 2018 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 with the Curt Custom Fifth Wheel Installation Kit part # C16411-204 installed. These airbags do use a u-bolt but they don't go around the frame like some others will. They actually just wrap around the jounce spring cup which the fifth wheel install kit does not affect.

I have attached a photo of these airbags installed with a similar set of fifth wheel brackets so you can see how they work together. I have also attached an install video of the airbags for you as well.
