Additional Info

Level up with Firestone's most popular and comprehensive air spring line, Ride-Rite. 2WD Ford F150 with B&W Hitch Ride-Rite air springs work to support your vehicle's ride quality, brake effectiveness, safe load-carrying capacity, and stability.
How does Ride-Rite technology work? F150 with B&W Hitch Ride-Rite air springs, also referred to as air bags, are installed between your pickup truck's frame and suspension. They use two convoluted air springs that can be individually tweaked to accommodate unstable loads. Once the air springs are appropriately adjusted, they help enhance your ride by absorbing road shock and decreasing interleaf friction. You'll feel like you're driving on a cloud of air. Along with providing ride comfort, Ride-Rite F150 with B&W Hitch air helper springs offer increased road safety. They help level the pickup truck to support steering and braking responsiveness, reduce tire wear, and level headlight beams.
Firestone air springs can also help save other 2WD Ford F150 with B&W Hitch parts from premature wear and lackluster performance. Ride-Rite air springs prevent leaf springs from permanent sagging under constant load and lower your chances of bottoming out by softening contact between the frame and axle.
Your 2WD Ford F150 with B&W Hitch Ride-Rite kit comes with everything you need for quick installation, including brackets, air springs, hardware, and air line and separate valves for manual inflation. Installing your Ride-Rite air springs should only take about one or two hours. No-drill kits install even faster. Optional air accessories can be purchased separately for your 2WD Ford F150 with B&W Hitch.
Why make Firestone air springs your first choice? Firestone released the first pneumatic suspension device in the 1930s. Since then, Firestone has risen to be one of the leading manufacturers of commercial air springs. Our air springs are engineered and built from knowledge gained after millions of commercial vehicle miles. Each product goes through robust, comprehensive testing to deliver results you can bank on.
