Firestone Ride-Rite Rear Air Helper Springs Installation - 2012 Ford F-250

Today in our 2012 Ford F-250, we'll be having a look at, and installing, the Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs for the rear axle, part number F2597. Now, here's what our air springs look like installed. This will raise our vehicle back up to the factory ride height to allow our vehicle stock suspension in order to do its job properly. Now, even though these support up to 5,000 pounds of weight carrying capacity, they don't increase your vehicle's weight capacity, or gross vehicle weight rating, by 5,000 pounds. You'll still want to follow, and not exceed, the manufacturer's recommendations for the vehicle. Now, our airbags are inflated via standard inflation valve. As you see we only have one, because we use a union 00:00:42 on this truck, so we can air both airbags up just off one fitting.

Today on our 2011 F250, we're going to be taking a look at, and installing the Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 helper springs, part number AL57396. Here's what our airbags look like installed.

Features a manual adjustment valve. And in our application, we have it going to a Y, so we only have one fitting for both airlines. Now, as you can see, we can either let air out, which is going to lower the ride of our vehicle. Or, we can add more air.

Also, even if you could piece together a kit with replacement parts the cost will be better to just get the whole new kit part # F2550. This kit fits with fifth wheel rails like your B and W kit.

  • Can Air Bags Be Used With Weight Distribution System On 2013 Ford Pickup Truck
  • You can use an airbag system along with the weight distribution system on your 2013 truck. The two can be used together as long as you set up the air pressure in the bags before you set up the weight distribution system. The air bag system is not designed to increase the weight capacity of the vehicle and it is designed to work with a suspension system that is in proper working order. If you have an F-250 with a gas engine, the system I recommend is part # F2550. For a diesel you...

  • Will Timbren Suspension System Help Smooth Ride For 2013 Ford F-250 Hauling A 5th Wheel Trailer
  • For your 2013 Ford F-250, the Timbren Rear Suspension System, part # TFR250SDG, should work just fine. These install in place of the factory installed bump stops so they should not interfere with the fifth wheel installation at all. These are designed to provide additional support as needed when carrying light loads, and become more rigid as more weight is added. One of my co-workers has these installed and said that when traveling over very rough roads, these will cause the ride to be...

  • Can Firestone Air Helper Springs be Used with Existing Reese Fifth Wheel Hitch Kit on a 2013 F-250
  • The Timbren Rear Suspension Kit # TFR250SDG is recommended for use with your 2013 Ford F-250, due to the the fact that the Timbren Springs mount in the exact same location as the factory installed jounce springs and would not interfere with the Reese Quick-Install Custom Base Rail and Installation Fifth Wheel kit # RP50026-58. The Firestone Ride Rite Air Helper Springs # F2535 that you mentioned, are possible to use in conjunction with the Reese 5th Wheel Custom Install Bracket # RP50026-58....

  • What Timbren Rear Axle Suspension Kit Best for 2013 Ford F-350 DRW Pulling 5th Wheel Trailer
  • Rubber jounce springs such as the Timbren # TFR250SDG that you referenced offer several advantages over air springs. Jounce springs generally cost less, they are easier to install and they require no maintenance or periodic adjustment. Also, since jounce springs do not engage the axle unless the vehicle is under load normal everyday ride quality will be unaffected by their installation, but when under load they will provide progressive resistance as the load increases. Please note that...

  • Recommended Suspension Enhancement for 2013 Ford F250 with Service Body
  • We have a Timbren Aeon Spring system that is specifically designed for service-body truck and has the high capacity necessary for such a vehicle, part # TFRTT350F. The springs will add extra support to your rear suspension, and will become progressively stiffer as more weight is added. A weight distribution system would work best for combating the squat you experience when towing, but the Timbren system will help somewhat. Since you tow infrequently and for short distances, you can probably...

  • Will Timbren or Firestone Ride Rites Work Better on a 2013 Ford F-250 Carrying Camper and Trailer
  • When choosing between the Timbren # TFR250SDG and Ride-Rite # F2550 rear suspension system for your 2013 Ford F-250, I recommend using the Timbren for a couple of reasons. The main reason that I would choose the Timbrens over the Ride-Rite is because you have a camper that weighs approximately 2200 lbs and the Ride-Rites handle between 3200 and 5000 lbs. The Timbrens activate whenever a load is encountered and stabilize that load accordingly. The Timbrens have a 6,000 lb weight...

  • Recommended heavy-Duty Air Spring System For 2013 Ford F-250 4x4 Diesel
  • I do have a solution for your F-250 diesel. I recommend the Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Ultimate Air Helper Springs, part # AL88396. This system will work with tongue weight up to 5,000-lbs. It uses the air springs but also has internal jounce bumpers as a back-up in case the air springs should lose pressure. The air pressure can be adjusted from 5 to 100 psi depending on the load you are carrying. Since you mentioned the 2-gallon reserve air tank I recommend the Air Lift QuickShot...

  • Comparison Between TorkLift And SuperSprings SuperSway-Stops For 2013 Ford F-350
  • The biggest difference between the TorkLift StableLoad Suspension, part # TLA7200, and the SuperSprings SuperSway-Stops, part # SSS-2, is the warranty. Torklift provides a lifetime warranty versus a 2-year warranty on the SuperSprings. Both are designed to replace the factory bump stops on your 2013 Ford F-250, and will help reduce side-to-side sway and body roll. Both are easy to install and require no drilling.

  • Where Do Timbren Suspension Enhancement Springs Install on a 2013 Ford F-250
  • The rounded platform that comes into contact with the Timbren springs # TFR250SDG on your 2013 Ford F-250 will not be an issue. The Timbren springs install in place of the factory bump stops that would also come into contact with this platform. The Timbren springs are bolted into place and centered over that platform and cannot move so there is no worry of them slipping off. The bed, when loaded down, will come straight down compressing the suspension so there is no worry of it coming...

  • The B and W Turnover gooseneck hitch for the 2013 Ford F-250, # BWGNRK1111, has brackets that mount to the outsides of the frame rails on the truck. Firestone air bags # F2550 uses brackets that mount on the insides of the frame rails and require a bolt that goes through the frame to the outside. The B and W brackets also use this same hole and it is permissible to install the air bag using this same mounting hole and one bolt to secure the center part of the hitch bracket and the air...

  • Front and Rear Axle Helper Springs for a 2013 Ford F-350 Dually 4x4
  • To prevent sag when towing or carrying heavy loads in the truck bed you would just need rear helper springs on your 2013 Ford F-350. But this can put more stress on the front axle and suspension and the ride would not be as good if you used front and rear helper springs. With that said what I recommend is to start out with just rear springs because you could always add front helper springs later should you determine that you need to. For rear Timbren helper springs you can use # TFR350SDF....

  • Lubricant to Aid Factory Bump Stop Removal on 2013 Ford F-250
  • You might try applying some spray-on lubricant like WD-40, PB Blaster or UltraLube Biobased Spray Lubricant # L10444 to the bolt that secures your factory bump stops. This may require repeated applications and some time for the solvent/lubricant mixture to work its way into the threads. Otherwise you might need another set of hands to hold the rubber stop while you apply your wrench or socket.

  • Recommended Jounce Springs For 2013 Ford F-250 SRW 2 Wheel Drive
  • For your 2013 Ford F-250 Super Duty, I recommned the SumoSprings Solo Custom Helper Springs - Rear Axle, # SSR-114-54. These jounce spring replace your factory jounce which is there to basically protect your truck from completely bottoming out. The replacement jounces will engage the jounces when under load and the jounce springs are made to compress progressively for lighter loads and then heavier loads by as much as 80 percent. They engage independently to keep your vehicle level even...

If your compressor kit was manufactured by Firestone or AirLift, the kit mentioned above would work great for you.. The Ride-Rite kit you looked at, part # F2597 isn't compatible with all cab configurations of your truck (not a fit for V10 gas engine w/ extended cab and 8 foot bed). It might...

You could later upgrade to a compressor kit like the # F2158 at any point.

  • 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.

  • Rear Suspension Enhancement Recommendation for a 2012 Ford F-250 4x4 Crew Cab Diesel
  • The Timbren suspension enhancement, # TFR250SDG, that you have referenced is my first choice for your truck. The Timbren springs are designed to do exactly what you need plus they will reduce side to side body roll, absorb road shock, and will not affect the empty ride of the vehicle. When you have a load in the bed, like your 5th wheel trailer, the bed will drop and what the Timbren springs do is take of the gap between the axle and frame more than the factory bump stops. This is what...

  • The Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Air Helper Springs, # AL57396, install on the insides of the frame rails on the truck. If you look at your gooseneck brackets that are on your vehicle now and they mount on the outside of the frame it is possible that these two systems could work together. You will need to compare the instructions for the Air Lift kit which I have linked for you with the current situation on your truck to determine fit.

The peg style casting on your rear axle that you are referring to will withstand the contact of the Timbren suspension systems.
