    Has Anyone Tried Calling Firestone

    I've been researching air bags and compressor systems and am at the point that I need to talk to a real person. Firestone's recorded message is they are closed(9AM CST) and to send an email.
    I guess they want to sell a product with not having to talk to anyone. If you can't reach them to answer a sales question, what do you do if you are on the road and you need help?
    That is right up there with "Please hold. Your call is very important to us. Your wait time is approximately 45 minutes. Grrrrrr

    I finally got through to Firestone. I got a part number for a airbag/compressor kit that will work with my truck. Unfortunately, it only comes with their light duty compressor, which I don't want.
    So now I'm back to the air bags with a separate compressor kit. Air lift is starting to look better.
    What are you guys doing for an airbag/compressor setup. I hate to have to start over from scratch.

    I have the Air Lift 25854 heavy duty single line kit and the 5000 series bags. I am still figuring out where things will go in my F250 with the compressor and wiring. I’ve unfortunately been delayed with some back problems that have kept me out from under the truck. Interested in seeing what you do as we have basically the same truck.

    I installed the Air Lift 5000 kit on my f250 and Iím waiting on on the heavy duty dual path compressor. Currently on back-order with no ETA🙁. I have called Air Lift a couple times to see if the circuit boards have shown up, but no movement so far.

    I found some really good videos on You Tube that cover our trucks. 2011-2014 are pretty much the same.

    heck some of the online vendors. They will probably come closer to having something in stock.

    Anything on the compressor side of the installation?

    Been out in the shop today. There are a couple of plastic plugs in the floor on the driver’s side that will be useful.

    Driver’s side inner frame rail is covered with hard lines and wires. Passenger side is right on the muffler. Thinking about installing the compressor behind the back seat.

    Gauge mounting is another puzzle. Thinking about filling the cubby down low by my right leg with something to mount the gauge there.

    There are also compressor installation videos, but you'll have to search for them. They aren't hard to find.

    Everything I’ve come across has been vague to the point of being nearly useless.
