Comments about Firestone Double Convoluted Air Spring - 267C1.5 Style - 1/8 NPT Combo Stud:
This went on a 2007 Chevrolet 1500. The product did not appear to properly fit. after being reassured by tec support I installed it. after first trip left air bag developed a leak. I replaced the air bag. after several months it went on the next trip. again the left air bag developed a leak. I called to verify the correct application. once again I was assured this was the correct fit. I ordered another bag. after studing the instalation I determined that I needed to add a piece of angle iron to the frame to have somthing to keep the air bag from shifting. It became obvious the recomended bag is not the correct application for this truck. I asked to share cost of the last bag ans was denied. This is the reason for this bad review.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Merchant response: We double checked and this is the correct replacement air spring for Firestone Ride-Rite kit 2430 which fits all the stock 2007-2011 Silverado 1500’s. It will not fit the 2007 Silverado Classic models, which are the same as the 2006 Silverado 1500’s. We apologize you are having problems with the kit, it is a popular kit and replacement bag. Feel free to contact Firestone tech directly at 1-800-888-0650 or us at 1-800-358-4751 if you are still having problems. The Ride-Rite kit should not have to be modified on stock Silverado 1500’s. Thank you for the feedback.
