Firestone Industrial Products Company LLC (“Firestone”) warrants that its Ride Rite Air Spring Assembly will perform

according to the manufacturer’s specifications for as long as the vehicle on which the system was originally installed

is owned by the original retail purchaser. This limited warranty does not include installation or other service charges

for replacement.

Warranty Period

The Air Spring is warranted for as long as the original purchaser owns the vehicle on which it was originally

installed. The fasteners and upper and lower brackets which accompany the air spring are warranted for a period

of twenty-four (24) months or 24,000 miles whichever occurs first. This warranty begins on the original retail

delivery date.

What is Covered

Any implied warranties are limited in duration to the coverage period of this warranty (some states do not allow

limitation on how long an implied warranty lasts so the above limitation may not apply to you). This Warranty runs

in favor of the original retail purchaser when the Ride Rite Air Spring Assembly is used under normal operating

conditions according to Firestone’s specifications and installed on the appropriate application. This warranty does not

apply to Ride Rite Air Spring Assemblies that have been improperly applied, improperly installed, used in racing or off

road applications or used for commercial purposes. In addition, the warranty will not apply to products which have

not been maintained and serviced according to the instructions that accompany the air spring assembly. The

consumer will be responsible for any costs incurred in removing the product from the vehicle and the cost to return

the air spring assembly to the dealer or installer from which it was purchased. If it is determined that the Ride Rite

Air Spring Assembly failed as a result of a manufacturing defect, Firestone will repair or replace, at its option, any

product or components subject to this warranty. You should retain a copy of your contract with your installer and

your receipt as proof of the date of installation. This warranty is non-transferable and is not assignable in any way.

Firestone specifically excludes any obligation for consequential damages or incidental expenses including claims for loss of use of

the product, loss of time, inconvenience, or commercial loss. This warranty gives you specific legal rights. You may also have other

rights that may vary from state-to-state. Some states do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts or allow the

exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages. The above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you. There are
no warranties, express or implied, including implied warranty of merchantability and fitness which extend beyond this warranty.



An air helper spring with a leak does not necessarily indicate that the air spring is defective. Inspect the air spring

for obvious punctures or abrasions. A failure caused by a puncture or abrasion to the air spring would not be cov-

ered by the material and workmanship warranty. An air helper spring kit that has not been installed according to

the published installation manual will not be covered by the warranty. Warranty consideration will only be given if

the kit listed in our published application guide is installed on the proper vehicle.


If you live in the U.S.or Canada, contact Firestone directly at 1-800-888-0650 for warranty assistance. All other

customers should contact their purchasing dealer. If the warranty claim is questionable, you may need to purchase

a replacement part until the warranty claim can be submitted and reviewed by Firestone. If the warranty claim is

determined to be a valid warranty claim, a credit for the purchased part will be issued.

Firestone has made every attempt to assure that your air helper spring kit will properly fit your vehicle. Revised

vehicle designs, new model year vehicles, and changes made to the vehicle by the manufacturer can affect proper

fit. Any aftermarket chassis or suspension modification made to the vehicle may affect suspension dimensions and

may not allow the air helper spring kit to fit the vehicle as intended.
