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...

  • 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...

  • Recommended Rear Axle Air Bag Kit for 2017 Ford F-250 Towing 5th Wheel Trailer
  • A rear-axle air bag kit in a truck like a 2017 Ford F-250 can certainly help deal with rear suspension compression from the pin weight of a 5th wheel trailer. Air bag kits can be equipped with on-board compressors that eliminate having to manually inflate the air bags to find the correct pressure for the trailer's pin weight. Being able to do this from the comfort of the truck cab while you're able to feel the results can make life much easier. All rear axle air bag kits for your truck...

  • What is the Minimum and Maximum Air Pressure for AirLift Air Bag Kit # AL88299
  • No, the minimum air pressure is 5 psi and the maximum is 100 psi. The 40 figure comes into play based off of the instructions which state that generally the system can support 40 pounds per 1 psi of air pressure. I have linked the installation instructions for Air Lift kit # AL88299.

  • Best Air Helper Springs and Compressor System for a 2018 Ram 2500
  • For your 2018 Ram 2500, I highly recommend the Firestone Ride-Rite Red Label Extreme Duty Air Helper Springs part # F2706. The Red Label Airbags are Firestone's heavy duty version. The airbags are rated with a support capacity up to 7,500 lbs which will be perfect for trailers up to 25,000 lbs. The airbags will only be responsible for the tongue weight (TW) of the trailer and not the entire gross trailer weight (GTW). You will have no problems installing the airbags as they will not...

  • Air Bag Helper Springs for a 2017 Chevy Silverado 2500 4x4
  • For your 2017 Chevy Silverado 2500 4x4 I do recommend the Firestone Ride-Rite helper springs # F2596. I have included a link to a video showing an example installation of this kit for you. Adding an on-board compressor system is an excellent idea any time air bags are used on a vehicle. It will allow you to add or remove air from the comfort of the truck cab so you will not have to have a separate compressor. There are different compressor systems you can use. If you are looking...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Firestone Ride-Rite Rear-Axle Air Bag Kit for 2006 Ford F-350 4WD Long Bed with 5th Wheel Hitch
  • Yes, the Firestone Ride-Rite rear-axle air bag kit # F2400 if a confirmed no-drill fit on your 4WD 2006 Ford F-350 Super Duty long bed pickup with 5th wheel hitch installed. I linked an installation video to show you the whole process. If you like you can add a compressor # F2097 to provide easy adjustment of both bags' pressure from the comfort of the cab. An install video for the compressor is included. This can be installed along with the air bags or it can be added later on if you...

  • Air Bag Kit Recommendation for 2005 Ford F-250/350 with B and W Gooseneck Hitch Installed
  • So your best solution is going to be the Firestone Air Bag Kit part # F2400 which is confirmed as a fit for your 2005 Ford F-Series Super Duty and was designed specifically for fitting trucks that have in-bed hitches like the B and W hitch your truck has. I attached an install video for this for you to check out as well. For a compressor kit the part # F2158 would be a great way to monitor the air pressure and make inflating the bags easy.

  • Best Airbags for a 2005 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD with 6 Inch Lift
  • For your 2005 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD, I recommend the Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs part # F2250. These airbags will do an excellent job of helping to distribute the weight of the trailer across the vehicle in addition to helping with stability and off center loads. Now in order to compensate for the 6" lift on your vehicle, you will need to add a spacer. The correct spacer for you will depend on the distance you have between the upper and lower brackets once installed....

  • 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 # F2596. 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 air from the bags from the cab of the truck. I have also linked some...

  • Rear Helper Spring Recommendations for a 2016 Ram 3500 with Factory 5th Wheel Prep Package
  • First, Timbren rear helper springs # TDR3500CA will bolt on to the bottoms of the frame on your 2016 Ram 3500 and will not interfere with the factory 5th wheel prep package. The Timbren springs will help with sagging when the truck is loaded/towing and take the strain off of the factory suspension. The ride can be more stiff when the Timbren springs are engaged. For a system that you can adjust to get the ride quality and support to your liking I recommend air bags such as Firestone...

  • Suspension Enhancement Options for Winnebago View Based on 2015 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 3500
  • We do have suspension enhancement products for the 2015 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 3500 on which your Winnebago View is built. These are displayed on the linked pages and include jounce-style bumper springs and a leaf spring kit # SSA11MTKT from Super Springs that works with the 2WD model. You do not mention the specific ride quality issue you're trying to fix but typically Class C RVs suffer from sway more than anything else. Rubber jounce springs stiffen the rear end, not exactly what...

  • Firestone 2250 Airbag Fit for 2006 Chevy Silverado 3500 With B&W Flipover Gooseneck Hitch
  • I spoke with my contact at Firestone, who tells me that the frame bracket for your B and W Gooseneck hitch will not interfere with the installation or use of the Ride Rite # 2250 Air Helper Spring. The air bag will locate between the underside of the frame member and the top of the axle, just in board of the leaf springs as shown in the diagram posted for you.

  • Maximum Trailer Weight for 2014 Chevrolet Silverado with 5.3L Engine
  • I looked at the owner's manual for your 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500, and for the 4WD Crew Cab, Standard Box with a 5.3L Engine and a 3.42 axle ratio, the maximum trailer weight for the vehicle to tow is 9,500 pounds. The GCWR (Gross Combined Weight Rating), which is the maximum allowable combined mass of the vehicle, passengers, cargo and the trailer is 15,000 pounds. The GVW of 7,500 you see on the sticker inside the door refers to the Gross Vehicle Weight, which is the maximum weight...

  • Recommended Suspension Enhancement for 2018 Ford F-150 Raptor Towing 8,000 Pound Trailer
  • For your 2018 Ford F-150 Raptor, I recommend going with the SumoSprings Solo Custom Helper Springs # SSR-117-47. These jounce-style springs feature progressive load control that will provide you with a much smoother ride when compared to the Timbren springs, especially when empty or hauling a lighter load. They have a 1,500 pound weight capacity so they will do a nice job of reducing the rear sag you are experiencing when hooking up the trailer. It will be a simple, no-drill installation....

  • Using Air Bags on 2015 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 When Towing 5th Wheel Trailer
  • Air bag kits like the Firestone Ride-Rite Rear Axle Air Helper Spring Kit # F2596 are intended to provide load support with a truck bed cargo load or to reduce sag when hitched to a trailer. Air springs do not so much directly lift the rear end as they simply reduce some of the compression of the rear suspension when under load. This of course depends on the exact load and inflation level. If your concern is keeping your 5th wheel trailer level when hitched you might check to see whether...

  • Recommended Rear Helper Springs for a 2016 Ford F-150 4x4
  • Based on the weight of the trailers and the type of terrain you will be driving on I do recommend the SuperSprings helper springs # SSR-117-47 for your 2016 Ford F-150 4x4. These springs are designed for models with stock height (not lifted) and for models with a gross vehicle weight rating of 7,500 pounds. The ride quality, especially when loaded and/or going over bumps on rough terrain, will be much improved using these helper springs.
