Description

NOTE: This kit fits the 2013 Ram 3/4 Ton 2500 2wd 4wd but NOT the 2013 3500.

Ride-Rite air helper springs are the workhorse of Firestone's air helper spring line. The Firestone 2299 kit is one of the most popular kits in the Ride Rite lineup. The double convoluted air springs offer maximum load capacity as well as years of worry-free service and support.

This kit WILL WORK with dually models as well as any 3/4 or 1 Ton ram with an in bed hitch.

Ride-Rite air helper springs are installed between the frame of your vehicle and the suspension, providing load support by using air pressure.

Many of our Dodge customers will use the air springs to support loads from horse trailers, toy haulers, campers, and/or heavy hauling.

Firestones air springs have become synonymous with quality, durability, and customer support that is second to none. Ride-Rite air bag kits utilize a pair of convoluted air springs which can be adjusted to accommodate your load capacity. The Ride-Rite series is capable of 3,200 - 5,000 lbs. of load level capacity. After installed, your ride will be enhanced by reducing inter-leaf friction which will keep your truck level, reduce suspension fatigue, and increase the stability of your Dodge vehicle.

Features
  • Includes two (2) air springs
  • Easy install - 1 to 2 hours
  • Load leveling capacity up to 5,000 lbs.
  • Keeps vehicle level
  • Level off-center or uneven loads
  • Reduce suspension fatigue
  • Improve the ride
  • Reduce bottoming out
  • Increase vehicle stability

Overall, Ride-Rite air bags have many advantages for your vehicle and will help to improve steering control and braking effectiveness, level headlight beams, reduce tire wear, keep leaf springs from permanent sagging, reduce bottoming out with air cushions between the axle and frame, absorb road shock, and match your vehicles load for an overall improved ride.

Firestone Ride-Rite 2299 FAQ with SD Truck Springs

Q: Will I be able to add a gooseneck hitch later on after I install this kit?
A:Yes, The NO-DRILL feature that is advertised with this kit means that there are preexisting holes drilled to match holes within the frame of the vehicle. The holes to mount the Air Bag kit are mounted on the opposite side as the gooseneck hitch allowing for both of them to exist on your vehicle without an issue.

Q: Will this kit fit on both a 2500 and 3500?
A: Depending on the year ranges, possibly. This kit is listed to fit on the 2003-2012 Dodge Ram 2500/3500 so as long as your vehicles fall within that category you are all set. If your having trouble matching vehicle applications we also have a section delegated within each product page that lists the year/make/model for each vehicle that this kit is compatible with.

Q: I already have a 2" lift on my 2005 Dodge Ram 2500, will i still be able to use this kit on my truck?
A: Absolutely. However, be sure to add on any necessary hardware to help bridge the gab that the 2" lift creates within the suspension system on your Dodge.

2" Lift Spacers are the perfect fit for your 2005 Dodge Ram 2500 and will help to ensure maximum ride safety and comfort in your vehicle by bridging the extra distance created by your 2" lift.

I installed this kit on a Ram 2500. The product arrived promptly,in good condition and complete. I installed this without a compressor, the installation was uncomplicated and aided with the video available on line. I have not tested the load support with my camper yet but anticipate no problems. The air bags have not lost 1 pound air pressure since installation 6 weeks ago. I will change rating once I have a chance to load test the system. I am very satisfied at this point.

Purdchased this system along with the on board compressor with wireless control. Wow, what a dream and difference it makes. We tow a 40ft 5th wheel and it makes leveling so much easier and safer. We were flooded here in Houston in August and had my remote control damaged by water and will need to replace it but I have the bags set at a certain pressure and they automatically air up when I start up the truck if necessary. These two compliment each other. Good luck and don't hesitate. Make the investimate and start enjoying your trips.

Product works great. Very easy to install. Took just over an hour to mount. Will buy again for my wife's truck. I made mistake and ordered wrong kit and SD fixed in one phone call. Immediately sent the correct kit for my truck.

Pretty easy to install. Could use more clear instructions on the power connect adapter; otherwise, went together like planned.

Awesome product. Shipping time was a little slow but it all worked out. This is the 2nd set of air bags I have installed in as many truc Durability and reliability are top notch. I haul a 30 ft toy hauler with a payload of around 11000-12000 lbs. ...handles it great. Will purchase another set in the future if the need arrises....Thank you SD Springs. A happy hauler.

We finally got a chance to try it out with the 38 foot fifth wheel. They are great, these air bags make a world of difference and they were very easy to install. I highly recommend these air bags.

The Air Bags were installed in my 2007 Ram 3500. I then towed my 15,000 pound camper for over 2,000 miles, without a problem. I encountered Snow, Rain and Desert Conditions and the truck handled like a champ thanks to the Air Bags.

The air bags have worked perfectly. They keep my truck level when towing my 14K pound 5th wheel. They where easy to order and easy to install with basic hand tools. If you are towing heavy loads you need air suspension.

This kit is all inclusive,except the pump. I found it to be very easy to install. Took myself about 1 hour. After installed, I've hauled numerous large heavy loads that I wouldn't have been able to with my 3/4 ton truck without squatting it badly. The load support is awesome. But the overall ride quality isn't the best when inflated and no trailer. I did find it helpful to have the T valve so that both bags are equally inflated.

I had purchased the ride rite air bags for my 2008 ram 2500, it was easy to install with the instructions I was provided with. At first I was worried about the bag not fitting on my exhaust side since I have a 5" turbo back exhaust, I went ahead with the install and the exhaust to airbag clearance wasn't a problem! Great product I recommend them!

These work perfect for pulling my 5th wheel. Easy installation. I highly recommend these to anyone who hauls heavy loads.

The Firestone Ride-Rite air bags were installed on a 2011 Ram 3500 2WD dually that is used to tow a heavy 5th wheel RV. I was initially concerned about clearance for the upper mounts of these air bags since the truck uses a B&W Turnoverball gooseneck hitch (with B&W's Companion 5th wheel hitch), and the B&W Turnoverball hitch is installed under the bed in the same general area as the air bags would go. As it turned out, clearance was not a problem. All parts fit as designed in the designated areas, and working on a garage floor jacking up one side of the truck at a time, installation required about 5 hours. The instructions were clear, and the components were beefy and well-designed. The Firestone Ride-Rite air bags did just what I was wanting. They eliminated the squat that had other drivers flashing their headlights at me at night, and they greatly improved the ride of the truck when towing the 5th wheel. All in all, I'm impressed with the product and the service I received fro

Air bags worked great, easy installation and hook-up. Have driven 10,000 miles sense installation and no problems as of yet. There is one quirk, I have to continually put 5l lbs. of air in them when running empty. They hold 20 lbs. and above great, but 5 lbs. not so great.

Works as advertised. Have only made a few trips since installing them but so far so good. Leveled up the truck. Rides much better loaded. Handles better at speed loaded. Wish I had gone ahead and installed an on board air compressor and an in cab pressure gauge and manual pressure relief valve at the time of the install.

The product fit perfectly and installed in a very reasonable amount of time. Works great and supports the truck as intended. I would definitely buy this product again for this purpose

Great product. Bags installed in no time. I tow a 5th wheel that has 3000# of hitch weight and the truck now rides level with 40psi in the air bags.

I thought the install was fairly easy. I didn't even jack up my 3500 2012 Dodge Ram, 4x4 to install the airbags. I pull a 40 ft 5th wheel toy hauler, (14,000 lbs), and the bags made a big difference in the way that the 5th wheel pulled. The truck sets real level now when hooked up.

Very easy install and use of product. Separate (tee) makes filling bags equally with one fill port a breeze! Highly recommend!

Very simple to install. Have bought 2 sets for two different trucks. Greatly improved the ride when pulling my 35ft fifth wheel camper. Made hauling the skid steer and dump trailer way better of ride. If I need another set for another truck I will defiantly buy these again.

This is a great product. I was very easy to install and fit the first time. Quality is great. On heavy loads it helps to get it all level making the entire trip much safer. I would recommend this product to anyone. No mechanical knowledge is needed for installation of this product. Product was shipped on time and packaging was good. Absolutely no issues.

Received the product as described. With the help of a friend, we were able to install the kit in about an hour, with very detailed instructions. The vehicle (2005 RAM 3500 diesel/dually) left Michigan about a week later, headed for Oregon. Load was a Lance 981 on the bed (5K+ lbs), towing a 7'X16' trailer loaded with my MG sports car and all my tools. I put 90 lbs air in the shocks, did not experience any swaying or sagging. I am one very happy customer.
