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.

  • 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.

Air bags were very easy to install on 2014 Silerado. New lower designed lower bracket was more secure than previous model.

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.

The ride rite airbag system has functioned great. Helps level out the truck when pulling the horse trailer. Install was about 1.5 hours. I would recommend the ride rite to anyone.

I'm very pleased with the helper springs. The installation was completed in half an hour with no problems. They perform very well when hauling my heaviest of trailers, and I have had no leakage since the initial install, which has been over four months. I have been recommending these air bag helper springs to every one I know..

This airbag kit is a must if you plan on hauling anything more than a bag of groceries in the bed. I have about 300lbs tools in my bed at all times. About 35lbs of air pressure in the bags keeps the truck setting level and keeps the leaf spring from getting beat up. It was an easy install taking a little more than 1hr. I have installed these on 3 vehicles and would recommend it for anyone that uses their truck as a work vehicle.

Awesome quality product. Very easy installation. Helps me maintain proper height when towing my travel trailer. Also great for when I'm hauling firewood in the bed of the truck.

Great kit worked as expected. Have not hauled a lot yet but truck sits taller and can pump up for heavier load.

The Firestone air bags I purchased performed better than I expected. The quality was excellent and the installation was as easy as claimed. My short box GMC Sierra needed a lift to carry my ATV while hunting and the air bags were terrific, eliminating the rear sag. I would strongly recommend the Firestone Ride Rite air bags.

I owned a transport company with over the road class 8 trucks and trailers for 40 plus years. I owned multiple brands of air ride suspensions, both tractors and trailers. I purchased and installed Your Firestone air bag assist on My GMC pickup truck. The ride and performance could not be better. The install is very straight forward and simple. The reputation of Firestone air bags in heavy duty trucks is long standing, and the same is true on light duty as well. T.Landry owner Landry Consulting

These springs were very easy to install and worked perfectly in stabilizing my 2010 1500 Silverado when towing my 26' Hideout,it stopped the buck boarding down the highway which produced a very comfortable trip. Thanks again as everything shipped on time and your service was excellent. Rick Stobbart

This is a great item, have used it on another older vehicle for over 17 years and have had NO issues. Installation was a little different on the new chevy but still fairly simple. I had to change which mounting hole it told me to use, as they installed at a slight angle!!!! Just moved to the other hole and everything lined up well. I tow a large 6600# trailer and these keep the truck level and stops the bouncing. Would highly recommend these to anybody. A big plus is that struck springs had great prices and CS. The shipping and delivery were as told Thanx

Great Kit! Easy to install (only took about 45 minutes), completely fixed the sagging and sway due to cabover camper. Highly recommend this kit!

The product sent to me did not fit my 2011 GMC truck and would have required extensive modification and welding that would have comprimised the truck. There was no recommended optional brackets so the item was returned. This cost me as I had to pay duty at the border and then had to cross back to return the item. I would recommend when doing this type of work on your vehicle to deal locally.. Not recommended

I ordered the Firestone air bags last week, the box came with no hardware, only the airbags and brackets were sent to me. I call SDtrucksprings Monday morning and they sent me a new kit no questions asked. They gave me a return label and I sent the original box back, a minor inconvenience but as a business owner they were EXCEPTIONAL in customer service which goes a long way with me. I installed the airbags in a little over an hour. Pulled my 4400lb trailer with no sag!! I researched these airbags for over a year and finally bit the bullet. These guys have the best price online, the several shops I checked with couldn't even come close to the price! I have had add a leaf or bigger blocks in my last trucks. Firestone is the only way to go with a lifetime warranty on the bags. Highly recommend!
