5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Install Bracket Kit and Air Bag Kit to Work Together on a 2016 Chevy 1500  


My installer said that I cannot install the 2430 Firestone Ride Rite air bags with this reese kit. If this is true, what air bags are compatible? Thanks


Expert Reply:

The fifth wheel install bracket kit you referenced, part # RP50082-58, is for Ford trucks and doesn't fit your 2016 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 short bed. For your truck you need part # RP50064-58.

Unfortunately, the Firestone helper springs, part # F2430, are not confirmed to fit with fifth wheel brackets. Instead I recommend using Air Lift helper springs, part # AL57204, which will work. Although you may need to do some drilling to install both parts.
