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

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.


Firestone Ride-Ride air spring components

Air Spring Construction

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.

Every order has been exactly as described with fast shipping and great customer service. I have ordered many parts for my truck camper set up and couldn't be happier with E-Trailer.




by:
1996 Ford F-250 Super Duty

I bought these for my 1996 f250. I have the b&w Gooseneck hitch. I was able to make them work with it. Small amount of fabrication but it does work and has worked well for a year now.




by:

Product was exactly as described and while an installation on a 40+ year old truck was somewhat interesting, the instructions were informative enough to allow me to make minor adjustments and create a good fit. One of the Schraeder valves was defective but Firestone replaced it.




by:

Great experience received my air helper springs only 2 days after ordering which is unheard of these days then installed them the next day and did exactly what they are supposed to do I’m pulling a 31 foot enclosed trailer and truck was on the overload springs which made for a horrible ride but not anymore would recommend this product and etrailer




by:

I Purchased these airbags as replacement for my original Firestone airbags that were so old, they were then known as Airstroke Actuator Bags (a good 20 years old). These new Ride-Rite bags are made from a slightly softer and more pliable compound, and are comparable to the bags on Semi-Trucks, but smaller. The ride is greatly improved, and I also like that these bags were a super easy swap from my old bags - same exact hardware.

The original bags were about an hour and a half setup with drilling the frame. To swap out the old bags with the new was about 45 minutes.

Overall, I am VERY satisfied with this purchase. Thanks again to the ETrailer Crew for getting my shipment expedited so I was able to get the new bags on before my next trailer towing trip.




by:

Hello Carol I received my air bags quick very speedy as needed looks like a write fit I will know this weekend.
Thank you very much these are the real deal most other brands claim they are Firestone but they are not!!!




by:
1999 Chevrolet Silverado 2500

Fit my 1999 Dodge 2500 perfectly, lifted my camper 3 inches with nice soft, stable ride, solved overloaded spring problem. Be careful inserting air lines into fittings...they don't easily release and we messed one up.




by:

My Firestone air bags were delivered across the nation as promised in 5 business days. This company obviously cares about Customer service...Oh and no shipping charges and the least expensive price I could find on the internet. My only issue is my wife...asking if I really need all these things for my new truck!! Thanks for the great service - I will definitley buy at etrailer first!

Running a 1300 pound truck camper in a Ram 1500, with 30 psi, the truck handles like nothing is there. Had it semi off road with no issues. The only pain was the install due to having to drill the frame, but other than that I have no complaints.




by:

My camper weighs 11000 pounds and this helps get my truck level. This is a great product and the service was exceptional thanks.




by:
1993 Dodge Ram Pickup

As expected good quality, installation not too bad.
Only complaint is I was short one bolt 3/8 x 16 x 1.5", so a trip to the hardware was needed.




by:
1999 Dodge Ram Pickup

Be careful with the bolts that mount the bottom plate they are poor quality and strip easily.




by:

Everything I ordered was shipped very quickly, arriving at my house in 3 days from when they were ordered. All parts were there, everthing installed and worked as advertised. I am very satified with the ordering, delivery and the products I purchased.
