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.

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 Ford 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.

It was tough drilling a couple holes through the frame but has proven to be worth every drop of sweat. . at 50 psi the air bags provide a Great ride and control improvement. Cornering and sway control is really good now. at 20K lbs. the coach rides great. After 2 weeks and 500 miles I have had no air leakage.

I wrote a review for the front airbags and they were much easier to install with one modification. The rear bags were a different story. The instructions were essentially useless. My motor-home is a 2018 Coachman Mirada with a 2017 Ford F-53 chassis. Rated at 22K with a 240" wheel base. After checking directly with Firestone I was told they should fit. The instructions listed using an existing hole in the frame. On the later models (after 2014) I was told these holes do not exist. I had to "fit" the airbags myself to the correct location using pictures and some common sense. Fortunately I was a mechanic in earlier in my career and the fitment is not that complicated. Drilling the four holes for the brackets on each side was another story. Make sure and get good quality bits, lubricate the area to be drilled and take your time. The wheels must be removed to install the rear. Took about 4 hours for both rear installations. It would probably take less next time as I now know about the lo

Installed this kit myself, instructions where easy to follow. I didn't get any increase in ride hight but it certainly smoothed out the ride.

Instruction images in booklet generic and not terribly clear on location. Almost no online videos for this model. After hours of watching youtube and winging it, got the job done. Product quality appears to be standard, maybe slightly above. Bolt quality substandard.

Installed the air bags last year & have only driven the motorhome several times since then but it seems to be good. No complaints at this time.

Got an e-mail from SD asking how my air bags worked out. Could'nt click on your site and get to the review section so I'm sending you an e-mail. The air helpers work just fine. They were pretty easy to install on my 99 Winnebago Brave. I'll be on my second year using them and I'm very happy.

Installed in 2013 RV with Ford F53 chassis. Improved the ride and control 100%. Only problem was in install, using existing holes in frame, the air bags are angled forward by about 20 degrees (off vertical). They work great, and hold air for a day's travel. Would certainly recommend to a friend.

Very nice system. Easy to install and good instructions. Had to cut away brackets on what the manufacturer of rv installed to access the two factory punched holes that system uses . Easy to adjust air pressure . Helped the difference in sag on one side the way rv is loaded. Ride is very good now . Would recommend and quality product
