Ride-Rite air helper kits from Firestone can be installed on most leaf sprung light trucks, Four Wheel Drives (4WD’s) and vans. Ride-Rite air helper springs are installed between the frame of the vehicle and the leaf springs providing load support through the use of air pressure.

Firestone has made a commitment to provide the customer with the best air helper spring kits in the industry. Ride-Rite has become synonymous with quality, durability and with customer support truly second to none.

Ride-Rite air helper springs utilize a pair of convoluted air springs. Most applications use the double convoluted air spring capable of 5000 pounds of load carrying capacity per set. It is extremely important to remember that the air helper springs do not increase a vehicles carrying capacity.

Although the air springs are capable of lifting a great deal of weight, they are intended to maximize the vehicles load capabilities within the recommended Gross Vehicle Weight Rating.

Coil Rite

Increase Coil Spring Performance

Coil-rite air helper springs are designed to fit inside existing coil spring suspensions creating a variable rate spring. These air helper springs are made of durable, elastic polyurethane providing years of comfort and stability to your vehicle.

  • Increase vehicle stability
  • Improve steering and balance
  • Improve braking effectiveness
  • Prevent “bottoming out”
  • Maintain a level vehicle
  • Keep headlights on the road
  • Reduce tire wear
