Firestone Industrial Products Ride-Rite Kits

In both 2WD and 4WD models, Ride-Rite air helper spring kits for 2011 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra 2500 and 3500 trucks and 2012 Dodge Ram 2500/3500 trucks are available from Firestone Industrial Products Company. Firestone’s Ride-Rite kit uses air pressure to help maximize the truck’s load-carrying capacity, vehicle stability, ride quality and brake effectiveness, and reduce tire wear. A pair of Ride-Rite air springs can provide up to 5,000 pounds of load-leveling capacity. The system features individual inflation valves that allow for separate side-to-side or front-to-rear adjustment, which helps keep the vehicle level when carrying off-center loads and maintains ride quality under differing load conditions. The Ride-Rite kit is a no-drill system designed to use the truck’s factory holes and mount between its frame and suspension. Firestone includes all the components necessary for an easy installation that typically takes less than one hour, including the brackets, air springs, hardware, air lines and separate valves. Firestone also offers its Air-Rite air accessory system to complement the Ride-Rite kits, enabling drivers to make instant air pressure adjustments with the push of a button installed on the dashboard.
