Vehicle Suspension Questions and Answers

  • Recommended Air Pressure of Firestone Ride Rite Air Springs # F2071 on Dodge Ram 3500 Dually
  • Other than saying that the air bags need to be kept between 5 and 100 psi, Firestone does not offer much in the way of specifics. The instructions mention that as a general rule of thumb, 1 psi will support approximately 40 lbs of load. Your best bet is to use enough pressure to level the vehicle, and then adjust plus or minus according to your personal preference. You can do this with the 5th wheel in place, and for the unloaded scenario. Keep in mind that using an air bag suspension...

  • Best Way to Prevent Sagging Suspension When Towing a Trailer
  • For sag from towing a trailer the best recommendation I can make is actually a weight distribution system. Suspension enhancement will help level your truck while towing. But the advantage to a weight distribution system is that it levels the vehicle by distributing the tongue weight of the trailer up to the front axle of the vehicle as well. This will help greatly with handling and braking, especially in an emergency situation. The best way to pick out a weight distribution system is...

  • How To Tell What Size Firestone Lift Spacers Are Needed On A Truck With A 6 Inch Lift Kit
  • To determine what size lift spacer to use on your vehicle with Firestone Ride-Rite Air Springs, measure the distance between the upper and lower brackets of your air helper spring kit, and whether the kit mounts on the leaf spring or the axle. The spacer needs to be the same length as the amount of lift applied to the axle on which the air helper spring is installed. The axle mount kit would have the lower bracket mounted to the axle. The leaf mount kit would have the lower bracket mounted...

  • How to Remove the Air Hose for the Firestone Sport-Rite Air Helper Springs
  • I made a short video for you showing you how to remove the air hose from the air line fittings on your Sport-Rite air helper springs. The main thing to remember is to have the collar on the fitting pushed down when removing the air hose. It may take a little elbow grease to remove, but it should release if the collar is held down.

  • Towing Capacity of a 2013 Toyota Tacoma 4.0 Double Cab 4x4 with Factory Tow Package
  • I can help you out, no problem. What you are going to want to look at is the towing capacities of the truck. You need to know the gross combined weight rating. This is the most the vehicle, including cargo and occupants, plus the trailer can weigh. This information is usually in the owners manual or on a sticker in the door jamb. Looking at an online copy of the owners manual the 4 liter V6 model of the 2013 Toyota Tacoma with 4-wheel drive could have one of several capacities depending...

  • Diameter, Maximum and Minimum Height for Air Bags in Firestone Ride-Rite System # F2071
  • I went out to the warehouse and pulled a Firestone Ride-Rite system # F2071. When fully collapsed and no air in the system it measures 2-3/4 inches not counting the valves on the top. Please note that you should always have at least 5 psi in the springs up to 100 psi. When in its regular state the bags will not expand much beyond how they come in the box. They are 6 inches tall again not counting the valves. And finally, the diameter is 5-3/4 inches. Use these measurements as guides...

  • Suspension Enhancement, 5th Wheel and Gooseneck Hitches for a 2011 Ford F-250 Diesel Long Bed 2WD
  • Yes, your 2011 Ford F-250 does certainly have the prep package installed. If the gooseneck ball was not included then you will need ball kit # RP30137 or # C60601. For a 5th wheel hitch you can use any of the following hitches that fit directly into the 4 pucks: Reese Elite Series hitch # RP30142 (18K), # RP30143 (25K) B&W Companion hitch # BWRVK3300 Or any of these Curt hitches: # C16530-16017, # C16520-16017, # C16515-16017, or # C16545-16017 For suspension enhancement I actually...

  • Experiencing Bounce When Towing 24 FT Pull Behind Trailer w/ 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500
  • There are a couple things that come to mind that may help with the bounce that you are experiencing when towing the 24 ft pull behind trailer with your 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500. I would start by checking to make sure that your trailer isn't overloaded. Next, make sure that the tongue weight is between 10 and 15 percent of the overall trailer weight. Not enough weight in the tongue can cause bounce in the truck/trailer connection and too much weight could cause bounce at the back of...

  • How to Reduce Sag on a 2012 Ford F-250 Super Duty with Towing a 5th Wheel Trailer
  • The best way to reduce the sag on your 2012 Ford F-250 when towing your fifth wheel trailer is to add a rear suspension enhancement system. The two most common types of rear suspension enhancement systems are air bag systems and rubber spring systems. The rubber spring systems like the SumoSprings and the Timbren Springs, # TFR250SDG, are typically more economical than an air bag kit like the Firestone Ride-Rite Air Springs, # F2550. The Timbren springs and the Ride-Rite kit that I mentioned...

  • Recommended Air Compressor and Tank Kit To Allow Air Bag Inflation and Ability to Air Vehicle Tires
  • I have a solution for you, but the Air Lift WirelessAIR Compressor System # AL72000 is not designed to be used with an air tank. I spoke with my contact at Air Lift and he confirmed that the # AL72000 will not work with an air tank. We have several options for air compressors and tanks that will work great for what you are wanting to do. I recommend the Firestone Air Command II, Analog, Heavy Duty Compressor with Air Tank and 25 Foot Hose # F2549. This kit will provide you with all...

  • Firestone Air Bag Suspension Enhancement for a 2014 Chevy Silverado LTZ Z71
  • The axle your version of the 2014 Chevy Silverado would be the Z71 rear axle and that should also be a 4 wheel drive model. The proper kit for a 1500 would be # F2430 that you have referenced. But if it happens to be a 2500 or 3500 then you would need to use # F2528. I have linked videos to the right showing typical installations for you. Also, if you do not want to manually fill the air bags every time you can install a Level Command II kit, # F2219, which will allow you to fill/remove...

  • How To Pair an Air Lift WirelessAIR Remote to Compressor
  • In the settings mode of the controller you can join the manifolds with the controller. To set the manifold into join mode locate the yellow join wire. It is the yellow wire with heat shrink on the end of it. Remove the cap leaving it attached to the harness. Attach the exposed terminal to a good frame ground. Now the manifold will boot into join mode and will click the exhaust solenoid 5 times fast then one per second. The manifold will stay in join mode for 30 seconds. On the controller...

  • Can Firestone Air Bags be Used with Weight Distribution Hitch when Towing a Trailer
  • I do not recommend using air bags and weight distribution at the same time. If you are experiencing rear end sag on the tow vehicle caused by towing a trailer then the best solution is weight distribution. But not just any weight distribution system. It has to be the proper capacity. To choose a weight distribution system you will need to go by the total tongue weight of the set up. This is calculated by taking the tongue weight of the trailer, when loaded and ready to tow, and adding...

  • What is the Maximum Air Pressure for Air Lift 1,000 Pound Capacity Air Helper Springs
  • According to the instructions which I have linked for you for Air Lift suspension enhancement # AL60769, the maximum air pressure is 35 psi and the minimum is 5 psi. Over-inflation and under-inflation can damage the air bags so you will always want to stay within the 5 to 35 psi range.

  • Suspension Enhancement Recommendation for a 2011 Dodge Ram 1500 Towing a Gooseneck Trailer
  • For occasional towing with your 2011 Dodge Ram 1500, I would go with the Timbren suspension enhancement system. If you do not have a Quad Cab, use # TDR1500DS. If you do have a Quad Cab, use # TDR1500DQ (instructions linked for reference). The Firestone systems are good when you carrying varying sized loads and have to adjust the ride accordingly. But for occasional towing of the same trailer, the Timbren system would be the way to go.

  • Rear Sumo Spring Recommendation for 2016 Thor ACE 29.3 Motorhome
  • Since your 2016 Thor ACE 29.3 loaded weighs 24,000 lbs the part # SSR-187-54-1 is the best choice. It's for vehicles with a GVWR between 20,000 and 26,000 lbs so your weight would be perfect. I attached an install video for this kit for you to check out as well.

  • The Firestone Ride-Rite # F2550 is compatible with fifth wheel or gooseneck hitches, including your B & W Turnover Ball. I've confirmed this with Firestone for you. You might also be interested in an on-board compressor system like part # F2158. A compressor system would allow you to add or remove air pressure from the air bag helper springs from your truck cab with the touch of a button. I've linked you to some install videos and FAQ articles that you might find helpful.

  • Replacement Upper and Lower Mounting Brackets for Firestone # F2299 Ride-Rite Air Spring Kit
  • It sounds like what you're needing is the Firestone Replacement Bracket Kit for the # F2299 Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs. The part number for the bracket kit is part # F2479. This will provide 2 upper brackets, two lower brackets, two upper braces and the necessary hardware.
