Will Firestone 2582 Air Helper Springs Fit work with B&W Gooseneck Hitch on a 2018 Ford F-150


Hi, I would like to know if the 2582 airbags will work on my 2018 F150 Lariat super crew 5.5foot bed 4wd with a BandW underbed gooseneck hitch? Thanks,

I do have a solution for you, but unfortunately the Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs # F2582 are not compatible with the B&W Turnoverball Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch # BWGNRK1115 currently installed on your 2018 Ford F-150.

Instead I recommend the Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Ultimate Air Helper Springs which are available with the standard option # AL57385 as well as with the internal jounce bumpers with part # AL88385. These installed under the frame instead of in the same location as the plate of the B&W hitch which is why they will fit.

A great addition to an air bag kit is a compressor system because it eliminates the need to hunt down a compressor when you need to add psi plus it gives you a way to monitor your air bags. I recommend the Air Lift WirelessONE Compressor System # AL25980 because it is a single path system (so your air bags will be adjusted the same psi all the time) and includes a hand-held remote so you can adjust your air bags from inside or outside of your truck cab.

I have attached some videos for you to check out.
