Firestone Ride-Rite air bag helper springs are the work horse of the Firestone line. The double convoluted air bags offer maximum load support as well as years of worry-free service. These 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.

Will these work on a 2013 Ford f150 xlt if I have a fifth wheel plate already installed
No. Unfortunately this system mounts to the outside of the the frame, in the same place that the fifth wheel hitch plates wrap the frame.

Review Product
nice addition to f-150
This is a quality air spring kit, very impressed with how my f-150 rides. Firmer yet more comfortable. Using about 45 to 50 psi, seems to be about right for me. Installation was simple. Thank you.

good purchase
First time installing something like this. Went pretty smooth on install, had to call Firestone to figure out how one of the brackets fit. I do love the way my truck rides, especially when I am hauling something. Using an air compressor system with them. Makes adjusting the air pressure much easier. Highly recommended.

perfect for heavy loads
Put these on my F150 Ecoboost. These Ride-Rite bags really do a great job when pulling a trailer. The spongy feel is replaced with a firmer more controlled ride. 2 1/2 hour install, not too bad.

Lovin it
I have a 2013 Ford and so far it has been working like a charm. The product is a great addition to my truck, especially since i will be towing 4 wheelers this summer. I gave it a try, and i was very impressed, even without my trailer connected, you can tell that the ride is alot smoother. so far im really impressed and would recommend to anyone towing or anyone that wants a better ride.

must have
This installation took me around 1 hour to an hour and a half. the installation was no problem for me. in my opinion i would want to have these air bags no matter what, even if you have no trailer. of course it is a great addition when you are towing but i love the ride without a trailer, it is a comfortable and smooth ride with this product installed. really enjoying this kit.

Product work like they should, shipped on time and I have no complaints.
I went from an F-350 to a F-150 and the air bags gave me the lift needed to keep the trailer level.
