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.

Just bought a 2016 Coachmen Mirada 35bh m'home on a Ford F53 chassis. Seems to have quite a top heavy sway. Will this product fit the 2016 chassis & help alleviate problem?
Air bags would fix the problem, however there is not a system available for your 2016 Coachmen at this time. Check back with us within 3-6 months to see if the air bag companies have released a new kit.

Fantastic suspension assist add on
Only took a couple of hours to install these airbags on my 1999 F 53 chassis motorhome was experiencing suspension fatigue particularly on the curb side of the vehicle with the generator and propane tank throw the RV out of balance. Less than 40 pounds of air pressure fixed my problem and there is a remarkable improvement in the handling.
