Firestone Ride-Rite Airbags

Decided to join the "Bagger" club!

Bought me a set from sdtrucksprings.com for $287 includes free shipping, ordered on a Sunday, sitting at my door on Tuesday morning...great service.
Inspected all parts, very good build quality to them...can't wait until install & give them a run

Ragin,
Very interested in how this goes for you. Interested in ease of install and how much difference you notice once they are on. Since we have the same 5'er

I love them on my truck. The install is a BREEZE, I did mine in no time on the ground in front of our condo.
I also did the on board compressor recently, it is nice as well

I installed these a few years back on my f250 and they work great. They are very easy to install, I highly recommend them.

You will love them Ragin! They are one of the best things that I have ever done to my truck, and thats saying something being how much I have done to it. But when installed with an air system they are GREAT!! (I have the AirLift Quickshot) Atleast on my F150 the install was a breeze, if I remember right the instructions say 2.5hrs for the install and that it works best on jack stands or with a lift. With me not wanting to wait, I did it in less than 1.5hrs with the truck sitting on all fours. The hardest part is figuring where to route lines and where to mount the schrader valves.

I put them on my 2008 just to level the truck. Even though it would only squat 1.5 inches, it was enough to make oncoming traffic think my bright lights were on.

You can't make things idiot proof, you can only make them idiot resistant.

Ditto for this recommendation.

I have been running the RideRites for about 10 years now and I would not be without them.

I bought them for this sole reason, to level the stance. I have the front end lifted to give the truck a level appearance when running unloaded.

If I had kept the stock front end height, the truck would sit level with 5'ver attached but that look just ain't cool when running around unloaded...LOL

I'm anxious to see the difference in ride comfort with the bags.
