Firestone Ride-Rite Air Spring Basics

Firestone Ride-Rite springs are designed to increase safety and reduce the strain on your vehicle when you are hauling heavy loads or towing a heavy trailer. The springs partner with your existing rear suspension system to help keep your vehicle level, maintain even load distribution and increase stability. Hauling heavy loads or towing a heavy trailer can make the rear of your vehicle sag and the front end rise. This puts more strain on your rear axle and reduces contact between your front tires and the road, causing problems with braking, steering control and traction. By adding air springs to your rear suspension, you can help to level your vehicle and improve braking and handling. The air springs also help to level your headlight beams and reduce wear on your tires.


Adjustable Air Pressure

Firestone Ride-Rite air spring airline installation

The air pressure in your Ride-Rite springs can be adjusted manually, side to side, to compensate for off-center loads. A centered load improves the stability of your vehicle by reducing body roll. The air springs will also help to absorb road shock and to soften contact between your axle and frame. This prevents bottoming out, thus improving ride comfort. Route the air line tubing for the springs to your vehicle's bumper to provide easy access to the manual inflation valves.


Air Spring Construction

Firestone Ride-Ride air spring components

Firestone's double-convoluted Ride-Rite air springs are designed to give you maximum load support and enhance the performance and ride comfort of your vehicle. The rubber springs provide cushioning between your suspension components and operate at up to 100 psi. The springs have four layers of reinforced rubber to ensure durability and enhance load support. A braided wire girdle creates the double-convoluted shape of each air spring, increasing the burst pressure of the spring. The rubber springs are attached to corrosion-resistant metal end plates with a time-proven, rolled crimp seal that keeps the bags securely anchored.


Air Spring Installation

Each Ride-Rite kit includes custom-fit brackets that connect to your axle and frame. The brackets provide the mounting points for the air springs. Drilling may be required for some applications.

2015 Ram 3500

2015 Ram 3500 CCLB, Kit was received in a timely manner. Good packaging, no damaged components. I read the directions several times so I had a clear path to install. Directions are very specific without confusion.

Install: Took me about 3hrs. Could have been quicker, but I wasn't racing anybody. Very methodical about how everything was installed. Everything went just as the directions detailed. 1 missing note: no comment about the E Brake cable interfering with the L upper bracket. Cable settled into a reasonable position to prevent damage to the cable housing. Air fittings on top of bags: can be difficult to tighten due to the limited space. Use caution to prevent damage to the fittings.

I did use a compression "T" to combine both lines to 1 fill fitting. No really good place to put the fittings at the back of the truck. The supplied mount doesn't work with the round hitch on my Ram. I routed the air line up to the fuel door. Clean install and less chance of damage.

A suggestion for the manufacturer: Don't apply thread lock to the fasteners or air fittings. The thread lock on the upper bracket bolts created such an interference that I couldn't secure the bolt without breaking 1 of my 6mm Hex bit sockets. Also, thread sealant on the air fittings makes it extremely difficult to turn the fittings in the tight space. It would be better to supply a small tube of liquid thread lock and a small tube of liquid thread sealant in the kit.

This is my 4th set of Ride-Rite air helper springs and just like the last 3, they've worked flawlessly. I've been using them on my work trucks for years, and they are very effective when towing/hauling heavy loads, or even just to rake a truck back out after adding a front leveling kit. Huge bang for buck. Highly recommend.

Dodge Ram Pickup

Ordered my Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs for my Ram 3500 and put them on myself. Being 71 and laying on the concrete floor I had to take a couple breaks but had them on and leakless in probably 6 hours. Teamed them up with a compressor with a fob and man I feel like a real trucker.
Bags have really stabilized my truck when hauling my pickup camper eliminating any roll. Couldn't be happier.
Great dealing with etrailer good price and very prompt delivery.




by:

Extremely pleased with the Firestone system. Does a great job of leveling out the truck and installation was fairly easy.




by:
2019 Ram 3500

The air bags have performed great so far (I’ve done one trip)
I installed myself which only took about 2 1/2 hrs. I miss read the directions a couple times. Only thing the directions don’t say is if you over turn then back up the threaded air connector you might get a leak with just the factory thread sealant. Had to pull off and put tape on one connector.




by:

Fit was correct and install was easy and straight forward.
Seems to perform well and adds a little extra control to the truck when fully loaded.

30 minute install. Works great. Ram 3500 high output Cummins. 42 foot fifth wheel. 18,000 lbs

Fairly easy install and helps keep my Ram level when I'm hooked to the toy hauler or my machinery flatbed trailer.

Easy installation on the ground with hand tools. I mounted the air valves in front of my bed toolbox and needed every bit of the supplied tubing to get to the passenger side bag.

Air bags are awesome really easy to Install very satisfied.




by:

I am not a big fan of the Firestone kit. It was not difficult to install until it came to the air fitting on top of the air inlet on the bags. Not a very good design at all and this kit didn’t come with roll plates like I received in the last Air Lift system I purchased and not nearly as well engineered.

If I had it do over again I would have purchased another Air Lift system.




by:
2019 Dodge Ram Pickup

Installed the F2615 air bag kit on my 2019 Ram 3500 4X4. I’m happy with the quality of the kit, and the installation was easily done in the driveway without jacking up the truck.
If it helps someone: I had previously installed a 1.5” leveling kit in the front end which was perfect. But now with the air bags lifting the rear a little, I wish I had installed the 2” leveling kit in the front.




by:

I have installed it on two trucks. It provides stability and greater handling. It prevents excessive tire wear on the front tires as it keeps the truck level.

Great air bags

  • Is it Normal for Pressure in Air Suspension On 2020 Ram 3500 to increase When Truck Is Loaded
    What you mention is absolutely normal for an air suspension system like the # 2615 Firestone Ride Rite. The recommended procedure is when you load heavy objects into the truck is to have the bags at about 10psi then load up the truck. Then, add air as needed. It's completely normal for the pressure to rise as the load increases.

  • Can I Use the Firestone Ride-Rite # F2615 with a 1-Inch lift on a 2019 Ram 3500?
    Yes! You can still use the Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs - Double Convoluted - Rear Axle # F2615 with your 1-inch lift. I went ahead and reached out to my tech at Firestone, and he recommends not using a spacer kit for your 1-inch lift. The # F2615 will install right onto your 2019 Ram 3500 with no additional parts required. It is important to note that this model does not fit your 2019 Ram 3500 if you have the factory air suspension. It is compatible with 4-wheel drive only.

    The Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs part # F2615 are a great option for a 2017 Ram 3500 while you're towing or hauling heavy loads. The pressure inside the air bags can be adjusted so you always get the best mix between support and comfort while loaded. In regards to unloaded ride quality, you'll let almost all the air out so they will maintain a factory ride. If you're slamming off the bump stops off-road then adding air bags and putting some air inside can help prevent this so...

  • Firestone Air Bag Spacers for a 2014 Ram 3500 with 4 Inch Lift Kit
    When choosing lift spacers for your Firestone air bags # F2615 on your 2014 Ram 3500 4WD you will need the ones that are equal to the amount of actual lift on the vehicle. Once the lift kit is installed you can measure the distance between the upper and lower air bag brackets. If that distance is 9-1/2 to 10-1/2 inches then you would need the 4 inch spacers # F2370. If you come up with a different measurement let me know what it is and we can find the right spacers for you!

  • Will Firestone Ride-Rite Limit Compression and Extension on 2016 Ram 2500
    Installing air bags like the Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs # F2615 on your 2016 Ram 2500 are going to limit the compression and extension when inflated, as that's what they're designed to do; when unloaded, they're not going to limit the compression nearly as much but because the air bags are attached to the frame and leaf springs with brackets, over extension would potentially damage the bag. With that said, they're a great solution to help absorb road shock, keep heavy loads...

    For your 2021 Ram 3500 the air bag kit you'd want is the Firestone Ride Rite part # F2615 which will give you the additional support you are wanting. Since you have a 2 inch lift you'd need the spacer kit # F2366 as well to take up the extra space created by the lift kit. We really like the Firestone kits the best as they have the highest quality air bags out there.

Other than that, both are pretty similar. Both are fits for your 2018 Ram 3500, both are compatible with your fifth wheel hitch and both install to the underside of the frame member and the axle, just inside of the leaf spring.

This won't impact their capacity but will make a difference in how well they'll hold up to wear and tear. Also, the rubber is connected to the metal end plates by using a rolled crimp seal to prevent leaks. AirLift does not use this same method and simply crimps the rubber into the end plate.

    Great question.

Assuming your vehicle suspension is in good shape and your vehicle and hitch are rated to carry the 25,000 pounds, you would definitely benefit by adding an SES.

The two kits will both fit without any interference from the other.
