Review of Firestone Vehicle Suspension F2597

Today we're gonna take a look at the Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs for the rear axle. Now, this is a custom fit part. It is designed to fit the 2011 and newer Ford F-250, F-350 and F-450 Super Duty trucks. And on a custom fit part, I always like to recommend for you to go to our website and use our fit guide. Put in your year and model vehicle and it'll show you if this part will work for your application. Now this will help maximize safe load carrying capacity, increases stability, improves the ride quality. These basically install between your vehicle's frame and the rear suspension.

The will help keep your vehicle level when you're hauling a heavy load. It gives you improved steering control and braking when you're hauling or towing. It'll also help level your headlight beams and even reduce tire wear. This will maintain even, low distribution with air pressure, leveling any off-center loads. And these air bags adjust manually, side to side with individual inflation valves.

Helps reduce the strain on your rear suspension, and it'll help prevent permanent sagging and excessive friction in your leaf springs. They do increase stability. It absorbs any road shock for a nice smooth ride. And it'll soften the contact between the axle and the frame to prevent any bottoming out. They do provide maximum load support and durability with a nice rubber construction. You can see it's a double convoluted design spring.

It does include everything shown here on the table that's necessary for installation. The air springs themselves, all the mounting brackets and the hardware, air line, and they even have the separate valves for manual inflation. Now, you can get switches, gauges, compressors and air tanks. They are available. We sell them separately on our website.

And that's even for a quick and easy air spring inflation and deflation from inside your vehicle if you prefer. These parts are all made in the USA. A few specs on it. The load leveling capacity is 5,000. And the thing you need to remember is that these Ride-Rite Springs will not increase your vehicle's weight carrying capacity. So, you do want to make sure not to exceed the manufacturer's recommended weight limit. And the air pressure in these springs is adjustable from 5 psi to 100 psi. But that should do it for the review on the Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs for the rear axle.
