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 W217602299


Will the ride right mount up with a fifth wheel hitch.

Asked
Firestone air bag kit 2299 is designed to work with most fifth wheel hitches. The kit mounts on top of the axle to not interfere with 5th wheel hitches. You can download the instructions on our site and see where it mounts and verity your hitch bracket do not interfere.


Hey I got this kit from a friend will it cross over to a 2013 dodge ram 3500

Asked
Firestone air bag kit 2299 will not fit a 2013 RAM 3500. We checked with Firestone tech and they advised you will need kit 2560 for 4x4 or 2579 for a 4x2 2013 RAM 3500.


Will the ride rite airbags work with a super glide hitch super rails?

Asked
This kit is designed to work with most 5th wheel hitches. This kit will mount to the axle with the lower bracket and to the bump stop mount with the upper bracket. As long as there is no support brackets that would interfere with the mounting this kit should work. You can download the instructions on our site and see exactly where it mounts. We have not run into very many issues with Firestone kit 2299 fitting RAM trucks with 5th wheel or Gooseneck hitches.


Will this kit work on a 2010 Dodge Power Wagon?

Asked
We spoke with Firestone Ride-Rite tech support today and they verified that the 2299 air suspension kit will fit a 2010 Dodge 2500 Power Wagon model.


How much air pressure do the bags need

Asked
Firestone Ride-Rite kit 2299 requires a minimum air pressure of 5 psi at all times to prevent damage to the air bag. The maximum air pressure is 100 psi. How much air you will need in your air bags will depend on the load you are hauling and the condition of your suspension. We recommend starting at 20-30 psi and working your way up / down from that point. After a few times driving with and without a load you will know which air pressure works best for your conditions.


Hi, I have a 2003 Ram 2500 4x4 and am interested in the 2299 firestone airbags. I have a 1" rear lift (Synergy lift shackle). Do you know if a spacer is required under the airbag? Also what is the specification distance required between the frame and axle where this kit bolts on? Thanks

Asked
If you have a one inch lift, Firestone does recommend using a spacer with kit air bag kit 2299. Air Bag spacer part 2536 is a 1-1/4 inch spacer and is what Firestone tech recommends. We currently do not have the 2536 spacers online, so you will have to call us at 1-800-358-4751 to order them. We will have them on our website soon.


will the 2299 work on my 2010 dodge 3500 4x4 duely ???? i have a extremely heavy 40ft 5th wheel camper

Asked
Firestone Ride-Rite air spring kit 2299 will work on your 2010 Dodge 3500 4x4 dually. The air spring kit will give you up to 5,000 lbs of leveling capacity.


Will this kit suit our Winnebago Alpine 31 footer on a 2007 Isuzu NQR 450

Asked
Firestone air spring kit 2299 is designed for Dodge RAM pickup trucks and will not fit an Isuzu NQR 450. We currently do not have an air spring kit for a Isuzu NQR 450. Thank you!


will this kit work on my 2012 dodge ram one ton with a b&w gooseneck hitch? will this kit go from axel to frame or top of the spring stack to frame?

Asked
Firestone kit 2299 sits on the axle and mounts to the frame. We have not had any problems with Firestone air bag kit 2299 fitting Dodge pickups with Gooseneck or 5th wheel hitches. The air bag kit will work with or without 5th wheel or Gooseneck hitches.


Will this kit work with a lifted truck? For example my 2008 RAM 2500 has 4" blocks under the rear leaf springs and I noticed this kit sits on top of the axle. Thank you

Asked
Firestone air bag kit 2299 kit will require a spacer if you change the dimensions from the top of your axle to the bottom of your frame. If your blocks are below your leaf spring and sitting on the top of your axle, you will need a 4 inch spacer kit, FIR2371 is a 4 inch spacer kit that works with Firestone kit 2299. The only time you would not need an air bag spacer kit for Firestone air bag kit 2299 and your truck was lifted would be if the lift was below the axle and you did not change the top of axle to bottom of frame dimensions.
