Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs

Ride-Rite air helper springs, often refered to as Firestone air bag kits, 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 bags 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.

Customer Q&A - Firestone W217602250


I have a 2004 Chevy 2500hd with a service body. Will this kit work with a service body or just a regular bed for the no drill installation?

Asked
Most trucks with a service body will be a cab and chassis model that did not come from the factory with a pickup bed. If your truck is a cab and chassis model the correct kit will be a Firestone 2249. This 2250 kit is not meant for a cab and chassis truck. It is for trucks that came from the factory with a pickup bed on it.

Are this products guaranted against leaks in the aie bag itself?

Asked
Yes, Firestone air bags are covered under warranty against leaking due to manufacturer defects.


does this item have a internal jounce so that it doesn't bottom out on failure

Asked
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.


Will kit# 2250 interfere with my B & W gooseneck hitch mounting brackets?

Asked
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.


DOES THIS PRODUCT MOUNT ON TOP OF THE LEAF SPRING PACK OR ON THE AXLE BESIDE THE LEAF PACK? THE PIC OF THE KIT DOES NOT SHOW THE SAME BRACKETS AS THE OTHER PIC IN YOUR ADD. I DONT WANT THE KIT THAT MOUNTS ON TOP OF THE LEAF PACK. PLEASE SPECIFY THE PART NUMBER I NEED. TRUCK IS A 2004 SILVERADO 2500HD 4X4

Asked
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.


will this product work on my 2005 Silverado 1500?

Asked
Firestone air spring kit 2250 is designed for the Silverado 2500 and 3500's. 2005 Silverado 1500's use Firestone air spring kit 2320.


Do I have to disconnect or unbolt air bags to hoist my truck?Firestone 2250 ride rite air bag system on a 2005 gmc k2500 hd pick-up

Asked
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.
