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.

added lift for my in bed camper.
installation on the passenger side of my 2009 f250 was a breeze took about an hour and the parts all fit with ease. the drivers side took a little longer and the clamp that goes around the axle could be set up a little better as it encases the brake line within the bolt and bracket. had to tweak the brake line attached to the axle just a little to ensure that there was no rubbing on the bolt or bracket. very little clearance for the brake line. air lines were a breeze and the kit works as advertised.
