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.

Good design. Phone help was also good.
I wasn't sure I had the right model because the frame support part seemed to big. However, once I clean out the frame of dirt the frame brace went right in.

Did not fit my Dually with goose neck hitch
Had to get a metal shop to custom make a couple of new frame brackets. The width of the frame rails with the hitch bracket is larger than stock. The instructions are ok and the product is good. shipped with not packing cushioning.

Does the job quite well. Lifts nicely. Great product.
The lift works great, but I was wondering why it has two inflate/deflate valves? Seems like one could connect the two bags together and inflate/deflate them at the same time.
