Description

Ride-Rite air helper springs are the workhorse of Firestone's air helper spring line. The double convoluted air springs offer maximum load capacity as well as years of worry-free service and support.

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

NOTE: Does NOT fit CLASSIC body style

Firestone's 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 2430 Ride-Rite kit is capable of maintaining an additional 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 Chevy / GMC 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.

About a 2 hour install without hoist, easy to follow instructions, once installed they work great. I put them in my 2014 gmc and my 2011 tundra.

These are the real deal - IF you have a load to carry (qualified below). The kit I received was complete, to install with each bag on it's own air. I placed the valves on either side of the rear bumper license-plate cutout. Installation was simple. I did it laying under the truck, in my garage. Took me a liesurely 5 hours, with coffee breaks. I removed the wheel from the side I was working on - which made visibility better & installation easier. The only difficulty fo rme, was getting the factory jounce bumper off. Couldn't get my head in there far enough to see up inside it & ID the kind of bolt head I needed to accommodate. But that's where a mobile fone's camera & flash come in handy! Once I figured that out - no problems. Re-routing the brake line was a no-brainer. Followed the instructions & worked out beautifully. No special connectors, anywhere. Honestly - a high-school kid with a half-decent collection of garage-sale hand-tools can do this installation & get it right the first

For the most part, the installation is pretty easy and you must remove the spare tire. However, the upper cups where the bump stops were removed MUST BE GROUND DOWN on each side or upper bracket can not be secured properly. The manufacturer of this product (Firestone) should widen the upper brackets slightly to take care of this problem... I doubt I am the first person that has had this problem. D.

Installed on 2015 Silverado kit works well except the upper bracket does not fit flush on the jounce bumper cup. You think it is tight, but it works loose and makes noise when you go over bumps. The edges of the cup need to be ground on two sides to make the bracket fit flush and not set on the radius's. A bit of a pain to have to redo part of the install.

System started to make noise when going over small bumps. The top bracket does not fit flush on the jounce bumper cup. the bolt was tight when installed but the bracket moves and gets loose due to about 1/16 inch gap between cup and bracket. I had to remove the top brackets and grind the edges of the cup to allow it to sit flush when the bolt is tightened. I also did some grinding on the brackets to ensure myself that the brackets would tighten up properly. Also use Loctite on the bolt. After a good install and then having to reengineer a part and spend another 2 hours fixing it, the bags work well with no noise.

First SDTruckSprings was awesome to deal with so this review is not a reflection on them. I have a new 2017 Silverado 1500 6.2L with a 6 1/2 foot bed. While installing this kit I found that the upper bracket does not fit flush against the jouce bumper cup. The cup appears to be too wide for the upper bracket. There is just over 1/16th inch gap between the cup and bracket. I contacted Firestone and sent pictures of both sides of the truck installed and torqued to spec. Needless to say, I'm less than impressed with their condescending style of customer service, which is another topic. They're telling me that they've sold these kits before to the same year of truck owners and that it must be something wrong with my threads. If you grind down the sides of your jouce bumper cup or are fine with the gap then this kit works fits as advertised.

Works great on my 1/2 ton. Spend the money and get a compressor at the same time.

The airbags work great and we're easy to install. When I pull my 32' gooseneck trailer I air the bags up to 50 lbs. Truck is stable and level. No headlights pointing up into the eyes of oncoming drivers like if I had my high beams on. They were a great buy

I got these Ride-Rite for my 1500 GMC pulling a 27 foot fifth wheel. With 40 lbs air, my truck sits level, same as when sitting empty. Ride is unchanged. Totally satisfied with these, excellent product, recommend.

First let me tell you I had a set on my 2004 dodge 1500 and amazed everyone with the load I could haul and keep it level. In fact I think too much as she started leaking oil on the rear axle on drivers side. Needless to say they worked awesome and leveled perfectly for hauling the camper, I carry around a small tank of compressed air so I inflate them when I attach and let the air out when I unhook for a great ride both ways. Now to the current set on my 2013 chevy. They installed differently with cheap looking hooks to hold them on axle which worried me, but they worked fine until I was on a camping trip in the middle of MI upper peninsula and heard rattling. Well much to my dismay, the cheap looking hooks were holding solid and the flat head bolts with an Allen wrench had come loose from the frame. After 40 miles out of my way and paying top dollar I finally had the tools I needed to drop the bags and tighten them again (on the beautiful shore of Lake Superior while my wife and kid

Install was pretty straight forward and directions were easy to follow. Amazing how much it lifts the truck with minimal air input.

I installed the Firestone Ride-Rite air bag kit on our 2008 1500 Silverado Z71. Just like the specs showed, about 1 hour to install with no drilling. Could not believe the difference they make when towing very heavy loads. When not towing I keep 7 lbs of air in the bags and the truck rides like it did before I installed them. I have recommend these air bag helper springs to several people and will keep doing so.

Easy installation, all the parts were there. Works great for a little extra payload. Worth the money. Just bought another set for my RV.

Super easy to install. Installed both sides by myself with basic hand tools laying on the ground in about an hour. Helps tremendously with heavier loads. The firestone air bags and hardware are made of high quality material and should provide many years of great service.

I installed this kit in 2009 GMC Sierra. This is a pretty simple straight forward air bag kit. Took about 2.5 hours to install. I didn't install a compressor with this kit. Works perfectly. It really made the rear of the truck firm. There is no sag while hauling/towing some very heavy loads. I would definitely recommend this kit to anyone who would want a more stable ride or wants better hauling/towing.
