Does your pick-up truck’s suspension need some extra help while pulling your trailer or hauling a heavy load? Don’t want to pay an arm and a leg to improve the quality of your ride? Then the Firestone Ride-Rite air spring kit could be the suspension enhancement option you are looking for.
We recently installed the 2525 – Firestone Ride-Rite air spring kit in a 2009 Ford F-150 4x4. The owner of the F-150 drove from Montreal, Quebec to our garage in Saginaw, Michigan. Why did he make the 613 mile (987km) drive? Because we had the best prices on parts and installation he could find. He needed extra support for his suspension while towing his camper and wanted the features that the Firestone Ride-Rite air spring can offer.
The 2525 air spring offers many advantages over traditional leaf springs. This kit employs the Firestone FIR6781 double convoluted air helper spring. These air springs (also known as air bags) use compressed air, sealed in a fabric reinforced rubber bellows which has two convolutions. The main advantage of an air spring is that it can be adjusted by adding or removing air from the bellows. Because the air spring employs a sealed chamber of air, the compression of the bellows will increase the amount of pressure on the spring. This causes the amount of cushioning to increase with the amount of weight on the spring, providing a level and more comfortable ride while giving your leaf springs a longer life.
Theres no comparing the OEM bump stop with the Firestone Ride-Rite double convoluted air bag. Not only is the air spring much larger than the bump stop, but it utilizes compressed air to cushion your ride, rather than the OEM's rigid rubber cushion.
The Firestone 2525 Ride-Rite air spring kit includes all the parts needed to install the air spring. This air bag kit includes the following items for quick installation:
- 2 Firestone FIR6781 Double Convolution Air Springs
- 2 sets of top and bottom mounting brackets
- 1 roll of air line
- 2 separate inflation valves for manual inflation
- All necessary mounting Hardware
The 2525 fits 2009 – 2011 Ford F-150s and is for rear suspension applications. Buy a Firestone Ride-Rite Air Spring Kit from Truckspring.com, your source for truck suspension parts. We stock most major brands of helper air bags and air spring kits.
