Congratulations - your new Ride-Rite Air Helper
Springs are quality products capable of improving the
handling and comfort of your vehicle. As with all
products, proper installation is the key to obtaining all of
the benefits your kit is capable of delivering. Please take
a few minutes to read through the instructions to identify
the components and learn where and how they are used.
It is a good idea to start by comparing the parts in your kit
with the parts list below.
The heart of the Ride-Rite kit is, of course, the air
helper springs. Remember that the air helper springs
must flex and expand during operation, so be sure that
there is enough clearance to do so without rubbing
against any other part of the vehicle.
Be sure to take all applicable safety precautions
during the installation of the kit. The instructions listed
in this brochure and the illustrations all show the left, or
driver’s side of the vehicle. To install the right side
assembly simply follow the same procedures.
Your kit includes separate inflation valves and air
lines for each air helper spring. This will allow you to
level your vehicle from side to side as well as from front
to back. If you would rather have a single valve inflation
system, your dealer can supply the required "T" fitting.
For your safety and to prevent possible damage to
your vehicle, do not exceed the maximum load recom-
mended by the vehicle manufacturer (GVWR). Al-
though your Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs are rated at
a maximum inflation pressure of 100 P.S.I., this
pressure may allow you to carry too great a load on
some vehicles. Check your vehicle owner’s manual for
maximum loads listed for your vehicle.
When inflating your Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs,
add air pressure in small quantities, checking pressure
frequently during inflation. The air spring requires
much less air volume than a tire and, therefore, inflates
Do not inflate this assembly when it is
unrestricted. The assembly must be re-
stricted by the suspension or other adequate
structure. Do not inflate beyond 100 P.S.I.
Improper use or over inflation may cause
property damage or severe personal injury.
