Highly recomended if you tow!
Installed these on the rear of my FJ Cruiser. Took a few hours to install with my son helping. I tow a 3500lb trailer that would drop my rear end about 2" once the trailer and gear were loaded. These got the rear back up when towing and I keep a few pounds in them when not towing to stiffen the rear. I have towed about 1000 miles so far with no issues.

Works as advertised, great quality
The quality of this kit is evident from the moment you open the box. The plastic tubes are also mabe by Firestone and are very high quality. The valves on the bladders are a push-type, so once you pust the tubing in, it's secured, no need to tighten anything.
Getting the bladders inside the coil springs is not super easy, but a little soapy water really eases the task. Make sure to follow the instructions and deflate the bladder using a 3" piece of tubing and the plug to keep the air out. I used a tire iron and the butt of a screw driver to push the bladder in place.
Once installation was done I inflated the bladders to 20 psi (35 psi is listed as maxmum) and attached my enclosed trailer. I was very happy to see that no more rear sag was present like before.
I then rode around town and the rear end was solid. I also drove with the bladders still at 20 psi but without the trailer, and the ride is not harsh or bouncy at all, so I just leave them at 20 all the time now. I'm very pleased.
This kit is designed for and was installed on a Mitsubishi Outlander. Mine is a 2007. Firestone makes kits for many other vehicles, so check to make sure you get the right one.
I have stock 2012 F350 FX4. I have ride-rite airbags in the rear and 4 way air-compressor controller. 2 ports now feed the rear airbags. I use a Lance 1025 truck camper and would like to add a little stability to the front end when going into ramped driveways etc... (reduce roll). Will this kit fit the FX4?

The Air Lift 1000 Spring kits says that theirs can't be used with factory install auto-leveling systems. Can this one??

Hello Kelley, the Firestone Ride-Rite Coil-Rite Rear Air Helper Spring Kit part# fir4108 will not work with Factory autoride or load leveling systems. Thank you for your inquiry.

Will this suspension air bag fit my 2012 Wrangler Sport 2 door JK. It states for Rubicon only. I thought they all had the same coil springs, at least my 2003 Rubicon did.

Thank you for your question. The Firestone Ride-Rite Coil-Rite Air Helper Springs is for the rubicon only. The kit for the not rubicon is the 4173 part number.
