vehicle, improve the handling, and offer a terrific ride. On a front

rail. On a rear system, the air spring and shock absorber will normally go
in the stock locations.

Airing up the Tahoe 3 - Ridetech Shockwave Titanium - Compressor, Electrical, Fittings, PROGRESS!
video 3 of the series i am uploading showing how to install a Ridetech
Shockwave Titanium AirRide system. The past few nights i got the
compressor mounted, wiring cut to fit and re-soldered, brain, plumbing,
fittings and basicly just making progress. I am trying to stay busy till
the rest of the products get here. Bags are next! Subscribe to see how it
FYI - the compressor mount had to be made due to the footprint of it being
bigger then the frame rail. Since it was basicly hanging over the edge i
had to repeat what i did with the air tank and fabricate some aluminum
brackets. It turned out solid!
Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs Installation - 1998 Dodge Ram 2500 - etrailer.com
Videos are provided as a guide only. Refer to manufacturer
installation instructions and specs for complete information.
Today on this 1998 Dodge Ram 2500 2WD we are going to install part number
F2071 from Firestone, the Ride-Rite Suspension System. Before we start our
install on the truck we need to do some pre-assembly on our table of some
components. To begin our assembly we are going to use these main
components. This bracket is going to get bolted to the frame itself,
obviously the air bag itself. Take our little covers off. What is going to
happen is the bracket is going to sit on top of the air bag just like that.
Then we will take two flange lock nuts and run them down tight right now.
We will run them until they stop, about a quarter turn is all you will
need. At this point you want to double check your torque ratings and check
your bolts too. Next we are going to install our angle brass part here, it
is like an angle pipe. We are going to run it down to where the sealant
goes into the threads of the airbag itself. Then we are going to use a 1/2
inch wrench just to tighten it up. Looks like we are good to go there, lets
flip this assembly over and tighten this bolt finger tight until it stops.
We are going to have to adjust this on our spring. Certain vehicles may
need it to move it one way or another, and even flip it around to get the
alignment you need. 1:18
