Speaker 1: Today on our 2014 Ford F350, we're going to be taking a look at and showing you to install the Firestone Ride-Rite red label extreme duty air helper springs, part number F2703.If you've every towed a heavy load or possibly a fifth camper or anything like that, you've experienced the sag in the back end of your truck. Now we all know that's going to cause a lot of drivability issues because the back end's going to go down, but the front end's going to go up, reducing our steering, braking and just maneuverability and the response that we're going to have. So before we start our installation we're going to take a few measurements.We're going to measure our rear fender height and that's going to be right about 41 inches. Then we'll move up to the front and measure that as well. The front also is going to be right about 41. Now let's go ahead and add a heavy load to the back and see what it does.

Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement System Installation - 2017 Ford F-150

Speaker 1: Today, on our 2017 Ford F-150, we're gonna be taking a look at and showing you how to install the Timbren suspension enhancement system for the rear axle, part number TFRTT1504E. Here's what our Timbrens look like, once we have them installed. They are going to mount in between our frame and our axle, giving us the support that we need whenever we're hauling a heavy load or towing a heavy trailer.They are going to replace the factory jounce stops and provide us a lot more support, not only because they're taller. As you can see here with our factory jounce stop, it is much smaller. These are more designed to prevent us from actually hitting the frame on the axle, and not really provide any support.Our Timbrens are actually going to get more progressively stiff with the more weight we add, but in the beginning, they're going to be nice soft cushion, so we're still going to have nice ride.Our Timbrens are going to work independently from each other, so it's going to help with those off-center loads or if we're taking a very sharp turn. It's going to help a lot with that body roll, and just the back end of the vehicle sagging, as well.

Vehicle Suspension Questions and Answers

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • Recommended Sumo Springs for 2018 Ford F53 Chassis 24,000 lbs
  • The SumoSprings Rebel Custom Helper Springs - 2 Piece - Front Axle # SSF-173-40-2 will support the load and compress together on your motorhome all the time when there is weight. The split design is a benefit for the individual springs when the suspension travel is greater than what a single non-split design could handle. In other words, when one wheel travels lower on a turn, the spring will not take weight off the wheel so it has more weight in contact with the road for better traction....

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Can Firestone Air Bags be Used with Weight Distribution Hitch when Towing a Trailer
  • You could use air bags and weight distribution at the same time. But 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 to that...

  • Rear Axle Air Bag Kit for 2017 Ford F-250 Diesel 4X4 with Factory 5th Wheel Prep
  • According to my contact at Firestone, their rear axle air bag kit F2535 is not a fit for your 2017 Ford F-250 diesel 4X4 but we do have options. Air Lift offers a confirmed fit in a 5th-wheel-compatible rear air bag kit, part # AL57399, which provides 5000-lbs of load support capacity. They also offer a version with internal jounce bumpers, which help support your suspension in the unlikely event of an air leak, part # AL88399.

  • 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.

  • Rear Air Bag Helper Springs for a 2017 Ram 1500 4x4
  • Yes, the Air Lift air springs # AL60818 will fit your 2017 Ram 1500 4x4. A lot of people have complained about the use of coil springs on the newer Rams but adding some additional support like these springs will help with the ride quality for sure. I have linked a video showing an example installation for you.

  • 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. Firestone offers the brackets individually, upper bracket # F5757 and braces # F5758, but hardware isn't something they sell separately. Your best bet would be to get the entire kit. Keep in mind that this bracket...

  • 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...

  • 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...

If you are looking to level your truck because you do a lot of hauling with varying load weights and tow the trailer occasionally then the air bags would work well. I would recommend using the Air Lift LoadLifter air springs, # AL57298, for 2 wheel drive or, # AL57390 for 4 wheel drive models of the 2000 F250. I recommend these air bags...
