Firestone’s heavy duty Ride-Rite air helper springs are the workhorse of our air helper spring line. The double convoluted air springs offer maximum load support as well as years of worry-free service. Ride-Rite air helper springs can be installed on most light trucks, motor-homes, RV’s, SUV’s and vans. Ride-Rite air helper springs are installed between the frame of the vehicle and the suspension, providing load support through the use of air pressure. Firestone is committed to providing the customer with premium air helper spring kits. Ride-Rite air helper springs have become synonymous with quality, durability, and customer support. Each application is specifically designed to maximize the safe load carrying capacity, stability, and ride quality of the vehicle. Ride-Rite air helper springs utilize a pair of convoluted air springs which can be adjusted for changing loads. Ride-Rite air helper springs enhance the ride by reducing inter-leaf friction. Please remember that air springs do not increase the load-carrying capacity of your vehicle. Ride-Rite kits are application specific and are designed for hasssle-free fitment to the OEM suspension.

More than seventy years ago, Firestone began developing an air suspension for passenger cars. Firestone Airide™ air springs were installed on a line of General Motors buses in the early 50’s. Later that decade, air suspensions continued to gain popularity in luxury vehicles. Over the next 20 years, technology improvements in other air suspension components, such as compressors and valves, helped support the growth of air suspensions. In the late 1970’s, Ford Motor Company incorporated air suspension in the Lincoln Town Car and Continental. Currently, our automotive group provides air springs to Ford, Land Rover and Range Rover. Our heavy duty products can be found on larger over-the-road trucks, such as Peterbilt and Freightliner. Firestone has continued to be innovative in product design, material selection and customer service, providing our customers with improved ride quality and safe load-carrying capabilities.
