Firestone Ride-Rite air bag helper springs are the work horse of the Firestone air helper spring line. The double convoluted air bag springs offer maximum load support as well as years of worry-free service. Ride-Rite air helper springs are installed between the frame of your vehicle and the suspension, providing load support through the use of air pressure. Specifically designed to maximize the safe load carrying capacity, stability and ride quality. Will also reduce the suspension fatigue on leaf springs caused by permanently sagging. An optional air control kit (air compressor kit) can be added (not required) for additional convenience.

2nd set great product
I put a set on my 2500HD last summer to level the truck when pulling a 4 horse goose neck trailer with living quarters in the front. After installation and inflating them to keep the truck level with the trailer on (50 psi), I unhooked the trailer and drove the truck leaving the air pressure at 50 psi. Had I known that the ride and handling would be that much better, I would have installed them in 2003 when I bought the truck new. My son has a 2006 2500HD and after we put the bags in my truck asked where his were. He got them for Christmas. They are so worth having.

Great service
Ordered the wrong kit on the web the first time around. I quickly noticed the problem during installation. I called Suspension Connection and they sent me out the correct kit promptly. Had no problems with the new kit it works great. I love being able to adjust the the air pressure for the different trailers I pull.

Impressed with how these air bags have helped my suspension performance. I tow a large trailer frequently and have issues with the bed sagging and the truck wondering. Installed the Firestone Ride Ride kit and have seen big improvements. No more sagging, better control. Simple install. Thanks guys.

I bought these for my Chevy to haul a camping trailer. I have never used air bags in the past (usually over load springs). I was scared of leaks and puncturing the bags but have had them out on a few off road outings and have had no problems yet. Much better ride quality over overload spring I have had in the past.

Like the firestone air bags, little learly on how the bottom brackets are attatched, but so far so good. Ive been running them for a couple of weeks now and everything is fine so far.
