Heavy loads can cause the back of your vehicle to sag and add unnecessary stress to your suspension. This stress not only affects your brakes in a bad way, but your tires, headlight aim and handling suffer as well. To improve your vehicle's ability to endure heavy loads, you need to add support to your existing coil springs.

Air Lift's AirLift 1000 adjustable air springs have 1,000 pounds of load-leveling capacity and are made specifically to fit inside your rear coil spring suspension for additional load assistance. You can inflate and deflate these tough, molded polyurethane helper springs as needed, ensuring the perfect amount of support for every load, every time. Easily level your vehicle front to rear, and if you run dual air lines to the air springs at installation, then you can inflate the springs independently of one another for side-to-side leveling. AirLift 1000 is a breeze to install with standard tools and comes with an easy-to-follow instruction manual.

AirLift 1000 comes with manual inflation valves that are typically mounted on the bumper but can be installed anywhere on your vehicle for easy access. For even more convenience and control, you can add a compressor and gauge system (sold separately), which will let you monitor and automatically inflate your air springs.

Air Lift kits are designed to keep your vehicle at normal ride height. You can find the normal ride height of your vehicle by unloading it and measuring the distance between the bottom edge of your wheel well and the center of the hub. After you find and record this distance, you can regulate the amount of air that you put into your air springs to maintain normal ride height - even when you are hauling a heavy load. You will need to adjust the air pressure in your air bags according to the size of your load.

Air Lift is positive that you will benefit from their air spring suspension system - so much so that they offer a 60-day satisfaction guarantee. Install and use AirLift 1000 springs for 60 days, and if you are not satisfied at the end of this time, you can remove them from your vehicle and return them for a full product refund.

Air Lift 1000 Air Helper Springs for Coil Springs - Rear - AL60769

Average Customer Rating:  4.7 out of 5 stars   (817 Customer Reviews)

1,000-lb Capacity. Upgrade your vehicle's rear coil spring suspension with this kit. Molded polyurethane air springs fit inside your existing coil springs for added support when hauling heavy loads. Improves handling, braking, and overall ride.


First about etrailer: Great retailer and product educator. Everyone there is a pro and top notch! Joshua really came through for me! Now the product: Let me say that you would be wise to "Measure the coil spring first". My 2007 Burb had the coil springs replaced and I am fairly sure they are more narrow than the factory versions. The air bag did not expand as well in the confines of this coil as it seems to in other customer pictures, yet it seems to work. I only need this for one trip, therefore it is acceptable. Second suggestion, have a helping hand around. Thirdly, my father always said "right tool for the right job". A shop with a lift, impact wrenches, and a working knowledge of springs installation would be worth the $100 install cost. In closing, solid product sold by a great company. End user was the main issue.


The Air Lift 1000 was easier than I thought it would be to install . My H2 Hummer sits even now with my 20' in-closed car hauler in tow. I only had to add 15 lbs of air . When not hauling I lower the air to 5 lbs. Love this system .

Great improvement to my ride height when towing my 22 foot toy hauler. Really help stabilize the rear of the H2 Hummer.
Ja M - 08/11/2022


Good product. I used them to stiffen the suspension for towing our boat
The installation was somewhat difficult trying to get the bags inside the springs. Next was blindly getting the hoses connected. Not something I would want to do again.

2004 Chevrolet Suburban

Very pleased with this product! Install took longer than one hour but I go slow and steady anyway, I just watched the retailer install video and it was easy! My 2004 Suburban sagged badly with our travel trailer and this fixed the sag. The rear well sat at 36.5" with no air and sagged down to 34.5" with the trailer attached. The rear well sat at 37.75" with air bags filled and sagged only to 36.5" with trailer attached. I haven't got a chance to road test but I have confidence in the product from my measurement test!

GMC Yukon

For a guys who never really works on cars I found installing the air lift system rather simple.

We have a GMC Yukon that we use to pull a 7000lb boat. The car is rated for 8500 so we are close to capacity. Adding the airlift has absolutely stabilized the vehicle. Great addition to help with towing stability.


For 2016 suburban works excellent

Highly recommend.

2005 Chevrolet Avalanche

Great product, my order was in stock but didn't ship. I called to inquire and it was immediately resolved and shipped that night. It showed up much faster than originally expected and will help me get on the road faster.

2019 Chevrolet Suburban

Much easier to install than I thought. Watched a few Utube videos for a short cut and ideas to make things easier. Which helped a great deal. Haven’t road tested the bags with a load yet but so far all is good


All is well last year have to see if they work when I use my travel trailer for the first time have not put air in them since the end of the season.


Works perfectly. A bit of a challenge to get in the spring.


Super easy to install and works as it should for my truck.

2006 GMC Yukon XL

I first realized that I needed some help leveling my 2006 Yukon XL right after I hooked my 2 place trailer to the vechile. My previous Yukon had self leveling rear shocks, the 2006 did not come w/ that option. I mounted the compressor on the top of the passenger side wheel well, (there is plenty of room there, & away from engine heat) I mounted the pump & dump switchs , & the pressure gage on a piece of kydex that I cut to fit in the little cubby that is below the heat/ac controls. The hardest part was getting the lift "bags" into the coil spring tower, time & patience. The install looks factory, & works great to level the vechile while towing. Great product!

2005 GMC Yukon XL

To be completely honest I was not too happy with the AirLift 1000. After installation I used them for one trip with a load and one side burst on the highway. Having said this I wasn't satisfied with how they worked.

I never claimed any warranty or contacted anyone because I really didn't have the time to reach out to anyone. I was looking for the pictures that I took back in March/April of 2016 but I have been unable to locate them. If I do locate them I will send them to you. Please note I have discarded the bags but what I can tell you is the one that burst was split at the seam and the pressure was per the manual.

2010 Chevrolet Suburban

I had a similar AirLift system installed on a Trailblazer close to 10 years ago, and that system is still functional. I bought this part number to install on a Suburban a year ago. It was a little challenging to fit the air bags into the coil springs, but it worked. The installation was very clean installing the Schrader valve behind the gas cap door. The system made a big improvement on leveling the Suburban towing with 600-800 lbs tongue weight.

GMC Yukon

Great product. I have a 1/2 ton Yukon pulling a 23 foot toy hauler. Without the bags it would squat the truck 4-5 inches. With the bags it only squats 2 inches. The control of the vehicle is much better. A cheap product for the added ride, and safety it provides.

2004 Chevy Suburban Z71

I installed these on my 2004 Burb Z71. It was much easier than I had thought it would be. After jacking it up, putting it on stands and lowering the axle back down, there was a huge gap in the springs for the air bags to pass through. The hardest part was attaching the air hose to the top of the bags after they were inside of the spring. The package included a heat shield for the exhaust pipe which I quickly threw away. There is a good 5 inches between the pipe and the spring. Routing the air hose back to the bumper was easy and I located the air valve in the plate that has the trailer wire hookups. I hope they work as advertised, I hate the back of my Burb sagging when I poll my camper.

2012 Chevrolet Avalanche

Air lift kit was easy to install on 2012 Chevy Avalanche and provided the needed lift to correct tail sag that occurred when towing boat/trailer.

After 1 one of use the kit has exceeded my expectation. Chevy should have provided as a factory mounted option.

2006 Chevrolet Avalanche

Quick delivery, and exactly what I expected. The only tip I can offer - my installation had the air connection oriented on the top. The first bag I installed the bag and then connected the air line. Feeding the air line down through the coil spring and attaching to the air bag, and then feeding the air bag (collapsed, and held by zip ties) into the spring was much easier.
The bags took the slight wallowing out of my Avalanche when pulling my enclosed 2-place sled trailer down the road! The best bang for the buck I've found for my truck yet.


Airbags have leaked ever since they were installed. I have removed and re installed twice to try and stop the leak. No luck.


love them never have to worry about the rear of my tahoe sagging with a load in the trailer

2008 Chevrolet Tahoe

The air lift bags I purchase from etrailer have been great for towing my camper with my 2008 Tahoe made a big difference in handling and the ride height for towing my travel trailer

GMC Yukon

This product is great. The directions were simple to follow. Put it on my Yukon for extra support while towing. Even when not towing a little air in the bags has great suspension support as well!

2005 Chevrolet Avalanche

Works well. Fairly easy to install. My only complaint is that the fasteners for the schrader valve rusted quickly and don't look good. Wish they were stainless.

2005 GMC Yukon XL

Worked great. 2005 Yukon XL Denali pulling 6500+ lb camper. This made an immediate difference.

2007 Chevrolet Tahoe

Easy to install. Product was delivered quickly, and works as advertised.

It has worked as designed, I have had no issues, and am pleased with this product. I have recommended it to others.

  • Correct Air Lift AirLift 1000 Air Helper Springs for a 2011 Chevy Avalanche
    The correct Air Lift AirLift 1000 Air Helper Springs for Coil Springs for a 2011 Chevrolet Avalanche is part # AL60769. These airbags installs inside the factory rear coil springs and expand when aired up which works to limit the amount the coil springs can compress therefore limiting sag/squat. These are an excellent option which are easy to install and allow you to adjust the pressure for varying loads. I have attached a sample install video below.

  • Weight Capacity of the Air Lift 1000 Air Helper Springs
    The Air Lift 1000 Air Helper Springs, part # AL60769, have a total capacity (put together) of 1000 pounds. They are not meant to be a suspension replacement, but more of an enhancement for your existing coil springs. Keep in mind that these do not increase your vehicle's weight capacity. They are more for keeping your vehicle level and diminishing sway. I've linked to a video demonstration of this.

  • What is the Maximum Air Pressure for Air Lift 1,000 Pound Capacity Air Helper Springs
    According to the instructions which I have linked for you for Air Lift suspension enhancement # AL60769, the maximum air pressure is 35 psi and the minimum is 5 psi. Over-inflation and under-inflation can damage the air bags so you will always want to stay within the 5 to 35 psi range.

  • Weight Distribution System Recommendation Sagging Rear Suspension of a 2008 GMC Yukon XL
    I actually have a much better solution for your 2008 GMC Yukon XL. Suspension enhancement will give the rear suspension more support when towing, but a weight distribution system is actually the better solution. Not only will it give your rear suspension more support but it will also distribute the tongue weight of the trailer partially up to the front axle so that handling and braking will get improved. The best way to pick out a weight distribution system is to base it off of the loaded...

  • Recommended PSI Pressure for Installing AirLift 1000 Air Helper Springs in 2001 Chevrolet Tahoe
    You are correct that the instructions for AirLift 1000 Air Helper Springs # AL60769 indicate to inflate the bags to 35-psi to test for leaks. You are also correct that this is the rated maximum pressure for your specific application in a 2001 Chevrolet Tahoe. The bags themselves can handle a much higher pressure without failure. I confirmed this with my technical contact at AirLift. The reason you're advised to test at the maximum for your vehicle is to best confirm there are no leaks...

  • Max Pressure for Air Lift Air Spring Recommendation
    The PSI range of the # AL60769 that you referenced is 5 to 35. The portion of the instructions that you found that said up to 50 was meant for RV air spring applications. I attached an install video for you to check out as well.

  • When To Inflate In Air Lift 1000 Suspension Enhancement Kits Before or After Hitching to Trailer
    You would want to hitch your trailer up to your tow vehicle and then inflate the bags of the Air Lift Kit part # AL60769 to the point where the vehicle is leveled. So to long story short...inflate the bags after hitching up.

  • 2005 GMC Yukon Sags When Towing, Even When Using Weight Distribution
    Let's begin with the basics. In order for a weight distribution system to work correctly, the existing vehicle suspension needs to be in good condition. Then, you'll need to ensure you have the correct system for the tongue weight of your trailer. To choose a weight distribution system, you'll need to first determine the fully loaded and ready to tow tongue weight of your trailer. To that figure, add the weight of any gear stowed in the cargo area of the SUV or truck bed behind the rear...

  • In What Orientation do the Air Lift 100 Air Helper Springs Get Installed on a 2003 Chevy Suburban
    When the suspension is under load it won't matter whether or not the air bag is in the top or the bottom of the spring. The pictures you are referring to are showing the air spring in the coil spring with the suspension unloaded and stretched out. Under normal circumstances with the truck on the ground the spring will be almost or actually touching on the top and bottom in the coil spring. All that really matters is that you install the bag with the valve pointing up and protector on top...

  • Will Helper Springs Provide Lift For 2002 Chevrolet Suburban Suspension
    Air helper springs like the Air Lift AirLift 1000, part # AL60769, are not designed to lift your 2002 Chevrolet Suburban. These are intended to aid the suspension in your vehicle when heavy loads are being carried. They are designed to help stabilize and level the vehicle with up to 1,000 lbs of support. This system does not increase your weight carrying capacity. The air pressure can be adjusted from 5 psi to 35 psi, and has a lifetime warranty

  • Suspension Enhancement Recommendation for 2015 GMC Yukon XL
    A properly setup weight distribution system shouldn't need additional suspension support, but you can still install suspension enhancement on a vehicle that's using a WD system. For what you are looking I would go with an air bag kit as that will allow you fine tune the amount of support you need. The part # AL60769 is a confirmed fit for your 2015 GMC Yukon XL and would work well. You will need to inflate the bags first and then set the WD system up accordingly.

  • Will a 2007 Chevrolet Suburban Support a Power Wheelchair Lift
    The tongue weight capacity of your 2007 Chevrolet Suburban is 600 lbs. Therefore, the weight of the wheelchair lift and wheelchair cannot exceed this figure. That said, if you will be loading this much weight on the trailer hitch then you will want to consider using a set of suspension enhancements so you don't lose stability or decrease braking power. The added tongue weight will essentially remove weight from the front axle which is where roughly 60% of your braking comes from which...

    The Air Lift AirLift 1000 Air Helper Springs for Coil Springs part # AL60769 will not raise the vehicle when filled to the lowest air pressure rating of 5 psi or when filled to the max air pressure rating of 100 psi. These coil spring airbags will stiffen the rear suspension when filled, not raise it.

The bags work by pushing between the coils in the rear springs which provides a firmer ride and does not allow the coils to compress as easily.
