Air Bag Fit on 2021 Ford F-350 Cab & Chassis

Question:

I have a new 2021 F350 Chassis Cab no bed. I want to get air suspension but the descriptions on both Airlift and Firestone 7500s say compatibility not guaranteed. I dont want to buy unless I know it will fit.

I checked with the manufacturers and found there was one option for air bags that fit your 2021 Ford F-350 cab and chassis, which is from Firestone:

- Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs # F2176

These will fit so long as you have at least 8 inches from the outside of the frame to the inside of the tire, so I do recommend verifying that. These are 4,800 lb capacity air bags, as there isn't an option for the 7,500 lb capacity bags you mentioned. That said, in regards to quality it doesn't get any better than the Ride-Rite.

The reason for that is these air bags are are made with four layers of reinforced rubber, which is a thicker, more reliable construction than other air bags, which only have two layers of rubber. The quality of their build means you will get the most dependable support for your F-350.

I also wanted to mention that During the installation of these air bags, you are going to want to ensure your air lines are cut perfectly straight, and the best way to do this is by using the Air Hose Cutter # AL10530.

And in order to make it much simpler to inflate and maintain these air bags from your F-350's cab, I highly recommend adding a compressor, the Air Command Compressor System - Wireless - Smartphone Enabled # F2610.
