Product Details

Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs

Ride-Rite air helper springs can be installed on most light trucks, motorhomes, RVs, SUVs, and vans. Firestone air helper springs are installed between the frame of the vehicle and the suspension, providing load support through the use of air pressure.

Firestone has made a commitment to provide the customer with the premium air helper spring kits in the industry. Ride-Rite has become synonymous with quality, durability, and with customer support truly second to none. Each application is specifically designed to maximize the safe load carrying capacity, stability, and ride quality of the vehicle.

Firestone Ride Rite air helper springs utilize a pair of convoluted air springs which can be adjusted for changing loads. These air springs are capable of 3200-5000 lbs of load leveling capacity per set.(Note: Do NOT exceed the vehicle's recommended gross vehicle weight rating GVWR). Firestone air helper springs enhance the ride by reducing leaf friction. Please remember that air springs do not increase the load-carrying capacity of your vehicle.

Ride-Rite air helper springs enhance the ride by reducing inter-leaf friction. Please remember that air springs do not increase the load-carrying capacity of your vehicle.

Basic Kit includes everything for a quick installation:

  • 2 Air springs
  • Brackets
  • Hardware
  • Air line
  • Separate inflation valves for manual inflation

Features & Benefits of Ride-Rite Air Bags and Air Spring Kits

  • Keep the Vehicle level - improve steering control and braking effectiveness, level headlight beams, and reduce tire wear
  • Reduce suspension fatigue - keep leaf springs from sagging under repeated or constant load
  • Air adjustments improves the ride - allowing the air springs to be matched to the load
  • Level off-center loads- individual inflation valves allow for adjustment side-to-side
  • Reduce bottoming out - protective air cushion softens contact between the axle and frame
  • Increase vehicle stability - absorbing road shock providing ideal ride conditions for passengers and load

Firestone Limited Lifetime Air Spring Warranty

Firestone Industrial Products Company LLC (“Firestone”) warrants that its Ride Rite Air Spring Assembly will perform according to the manufacturer’s specifications for as long as the vehicle on which the system was originally installed is owned by the original retail purchaser. This limited warranty does not include installation or other service charges for replacement.

Warranty Period The Air Spring is warranted for as long as the original purchaser owns the vehicle on which it was originally installed. The fasteners and upper and lower brackets which accompany the air spring are warranted for a period of twenty-four (24) months or 24,000 miles whichever occurs first. This warranty begins on the original retail delivery date.

        Comments about Firestone Ride-Rite Air Spring Kit - Rear:

        These air bags were just the right addition to our Chevy 2500 HD. We purchased a new 3-horse slant trailer with 10' living quarters, and it was putting too much load on the suspension. The ride is now smooth and suspension nicely balanced. Next installation will be an air pump so we don't have to be near an outside air source for adjustment.

              Comments about Firestone Ride-Rite Air Spring Kit - Rear:

              My truck is lifted with 37" tires. When I would tow my trailer, the bed would sag and the headlights would be shining in peoples eyes, not to mention a "floaty feeling" in the steering. The air springs have fixed all of that. With a reletively small amount of air (psi), my truck sits as level as it does unloaded and handles just as well.

                I haul heavy loads all over south Texas oil fields everyday and the Riderite air bags have improved the ride of my truck 100%! Before I installed the airbags I felt beat up at the end of a long day of driving. Now after I get out of my truck I don't feel like I went 10 rounds with an MMA fighter. I would highly reccomend this product to anyone who pulls a gooseneck or fifthwheel. Well worth the money spent! I shopped around a month and truckspring.com hands down had the best prices! I strongly reccomend the Firestone Riderite airbags as well as truckspring.com!

                    A:

                    Firestone air spring kit 2250 does not have an internal jounce bumper. You have to maintain the minimum air pressure of 5 psi to prevent failure / damage to the air spring. Air Lift Ultimate 5000 air spring kits by Air Lift Company are currently the only air spring kit that includes an internal jounce bumper.

                    We have not run into any problems with Firestone kit 2250 and B & W Gooseneck hitches. You can download the instructions and see where it mounts to the frame. Firestone air spring kit 2250 is a very popular air spring kit and we have not had any problems with it and 5th wheel or gooseneck trailer hitches.

                    Firestone air spring kit 2250 mounts on axle beside the leaf spring pack. Firestone kit 2250 mounts where your existing rubber jounce bump stops are located. Image "B" on the instructions, which are locate on the product page, show where the Firestone kit 2250 mounts under the frame of your Silverado 2500. Thank you.

                    A:

                    If you are hoisting the truck from the axle you do not need to worry about the air bags.

                    If you are hoisting the truck by the frame, first release the air pressure from the Firestone Ride-Rite air springs. This will allow the Firestone air springs to extend to their maximum length without being damaged. The uninflated air springs are capable of supporting the weight of the axle when the vehicle is lifted by the frame. After servicing of the vehicle is complete, lower the vehicle to the ground and reinflate the Firestone air bags to the desired pressure.
