Question:

Hi I have a 1999 Ford f350 dually with 7.3 liter diesel. I have installed a bandw 1108 turn over gooseneck hitch. I love the the set up I can tow my 5th wheel camper and also tow a gooseneck equipment trailer. I am thinking about installing a air helper spring system. My truck is the Ford f350 laraite dually and I was thinking about using ride rite f2550, will this work or not? Please let me know if it wont and your suggestions. Thank you

Helpful Expert Reply:

Yes, you can use Firestone air bag helper springs # F2550 on your 1999 Ford F-350 diesel with the B&W gooseneck hitch installed. The upper brackets for the air bags mount on the inboard side of the frame rails opposite the brackets for the gooseneck hitch so they will not interfere with each other. The gooseneck brackets also have a hole in them that will allow the mounting bolt for the spring upper brackets to fit through. I have linked a video showing an example installation of F2550 for you.

If you want to be able to add or remove air from the air bags from the comfort of the truck cab I also recommend Air Command kit # F2158. It will add a compressor and gauge display/control so you won't have to have an external air compressor.
