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.

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.

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.
by Steven J
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.
by Brian D
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!
by David R
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
by Steve G
easy to install and worked great.... I have used these ride right air bags on each truck i own. A+++++
by Thomas L
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.
by Tim G
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.
by Matt M
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
by James J
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.
by chris h

by mark d
The kit was easy to install. Directions we great and the product works just as described am very Happy with it
by Ken H
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.
by Michael R
Very easy install and use of product. Separate (tee) makes filling bags equally with one fill port a breeze! Highly recommend!
by van s
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.
by Carl d
The product was easy to install and preform as stated. Truck drives and handle heavy load safely. I would recommend item. thanks Carl
by william b
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.
by Richard L
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.
by Andrew W
I have these air bags on three different trucks. Very easy to install. SD TRUCK SPRINGS had the best price and shipped fast. Couldn't be happier!
by josh h
Performs great with the camper. Easy install. Good quality.
by Craig D
Sup-er easy install took about an hour total to install on my 2004 Dodge Ram 2500 4X4.
Instruc-tions are very clear and easy to follow.
I have after market soft ride springs on my 2500 and needed the bags to help when I tow my 35 ft trailer as it would squat in the back about 4-5 inches with the soft ride springs the air bages allow me to bring it back to level with very little effort.
by tim w
these fit exactly as stated and had them on in half an hour,work very well
by Jason M

by tom j
I recently purchased this air bag kit for my 2012 Ram 2500. Installation was a breeze and the components were well made. I pull a 36' 5th wheel and the air bags made an incredible difference. I would highly recommend them.
