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 1000HD adjustable air springs have 2,100 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 1000HD is a breeze to install with standard tools and comes with an easy-to-follow instruction manual.


AirLift 1000HD 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 1000HD 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.

They work great. I’ve used them to align my boat, a utility trailer and the wheelchair carrier for my wife. Has improved the ride and gas mileage by making the combinations more aero Dynamic. I would purchase again and recommend them to others

Installation was a breeze - of course after putting the truck on a frame lift and taking off the tires and wheel wells. Long enough line to run it to the bumper and really easy to fill. Impressive!

Within the first 2 weeks, one of the bags popped. etrailer.com gave us a replacement at no cost and we were able to get it installed right away. Since then, no issues at all after towing a motorcycle trailer and a camper. Havent needed to fill more than the initial and they are just a clean fit. Great product-highly recommend!



by:

Works pretty well. Kind of hard to collapse the bags enough for installation, but I finally got there.

Load handling is great with Airlift rear air bags

Working great. Keeps my Ram 1500 4x4 level hauling a 31’ fifth wheel



by:

easy to install while I was converting to traditional coil springs.. Held air, haven't tried loading it down yet.



by:

I had them installed by my mechanic. I use my Ram 1500 to tow a 12-foot cargo trailer with about 1400 pounds of contents. The bags just evened everything out with the tow. It made me feel much safer. The ride is a little more firm but I felt like it was a good trade-off.

I now about 37k miles on the truck and need the bags about every two weeks. They are holding up well. Hard to imagine pulling without them. I will definitely have them on my next truck as well.

@Laserpooch Awesome, glad to hear they're working well for you!

Never had it installed because two estimates were around one thousand dollars. I thought the air bags went inside the springs and would be an easy installation.

The installation may not be the easiest but I cannot see why the places are charging this much. I recommend taking a look at the video install that we have on a 2019 Ram 1500.

Still doing a very good job.

This item is amazing! We tow a large 24ft trailer with lots of weight and our truck weighing down and the trailer would drag on hills. This was cheap and excellent options to raise the vehicle. Highlights recommend.

Great - would highly recommend this for anyone whose trailering something that weighs down your back end. 2nd purchase of this item for two different trucks and am extremely happy with it. 1st we had this professionally installed and 2nd we were able to install ourselves with YouTube help. No need to remove springs!

I purchased these a year ago. I tow a heavier camper and wanted more support on the rear of my Ram 1500. It works great. Up to this point I haven’t had any troubles. It will boost the rear end of my truck pretty high and easily offset the weight of the camper. I’m no mechanic and I was able install it without issue. Follow the instructions to collapse the air bags and use large zip ties to keep it collapsed. This allows you to work in between the springs easily. Before you let them go and cut the zip ties and allow them to reinstate, go ahead and run your air line in the top and down to make it easier to hook to the airbags. If you do this it make it easy to get inside the springs. You can use soapy water solution to make it slide between the springs easier to if needed. Theme just run your lines to the bumper. Nothing hard to do at all. I run them all year with around 7psi in them. It saids run them with a minimum of 5 psi. Them when your going to tow air them up. I usually air them up to 40psi and I’m all set to go. I would recommend them and place them also on the next truck I get.



by:
2021 Ram 1500

Install is very straightforward and parts seem to be of high quality. Haven’t tried towing anything yet but they definitely helped with hauling soil.



by:
2020 Ram 1500

Install was not too difficult. It helps a great deal to watch the installation video BEFORE installing this product. It takes about 1 hour to install. I would recommend this product for most travel trailer towing options. I use this kit for a 28' Forest River travel trailer with a weight of 6,500lbs. 40PSI in the bags keep the hitch level.



by:

This system is affordable, effective and reliable. It allows me to safely tow my 30 foot four place enclosed snowmobile trailer behind my 1500 Ram. I had them professionally installed and it only took an hour. I carry a battery powered air pump to inflate the bags. For my application 40 psi is perfect. etrailer is my go to for all my trailer needs. Never been disappointed Very happy with all of my purchases.

2019 Dodge Ram Pickup

Again, great experience ordering from etrailer! I bought the Air Lift 1000HD to assist my 2019 Ram 1500 with a 900lb hitch load. The product is good but could be better. I think the air fitting on top of the bag and the schrader valves should be a 90 degree swivel push lock. I also think the plastic tee should be a push lock y-fitting instead of a tee. I was able to install the bags using the hot dog folding method (Google it if your not familiar). I would recommend using some tape to hold the spacer in the top of your spring mount before letting air in the bags. My spacer fell out and it was hard to get in after the bags aired up. I mounted the schrader valve in the rear corner of my bed by the tail light, just used large washers to mount in existinghole (no drilling). Ran the air lines up the rear stake pocket. Have run the truck with 10lbs in the bag for a week, can't tell a difference in handling. Will be bringing our camper home tomorrow, hopefully the bags make trailering better. Hope this helps!

Dodge Ram Pickup

We tow a Travel Trailer that has a very heavy tongue weight with our Ram 1500. Ram trucks have coil spring on the rear which make for an excellent ride, unless towing something with a heave tongue weight. The truck did not handle well while towing until we added these air bags. Tows like a dream now! We did not install the onboard compressor which can be ordered separately, but we will be doing that soon.



by:

The installation of the Ai Lift 1000 HD air spring kit was very difficult due to the 2019 Ram Truck rear suspension not being suitable for easily removing the spring. Having a lift is a must. I recommend that this kit not be used for a 2019 Ram 1500 and instead use an external to the spring air bag arrangement.



by:

I was excited about this product and the installation was reasonably easy. The 1st summer (2019) they worked as advertised doing a good job of assisting with supporting the weight of my 5th wheel RV. But now this 2nd summer, a slow Leak
must've developed as they don't hold air for more than 8 hours. I'll probably have to go in and check the fittings for leaks, but that is quite a process and one that I quite frankly don't have time for right now. So I would have to Say I'm disappointed in the product.



by:

Work great! Easy install. Doesn't eliminate all the sag, but definitely makes a difference. No more getting the bright lights flashed at you. Gets rid of some sway also.

Jerry O.

Glad I installed them. They work great. No more sagging, feels like I have better control.

  • Recommended Suspension Enhancement For A 2019 Ram 1500 Bighorn 4WD
    Ram's will naturally squat a bit more because of the rear coil springs, but if you're dealing with a lot of squat then air springs would be the best option to help get you back to factory ride height. Coil air springs, like the # AL60828HD, that you were looking at will offer a bit of help but really don't make as much of a difference compared to regular air springs. Instead I recommend the Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Ultimate Air Helper Springs with Internal Jounce Bumpers # AL88375. These...

  • Are Air Lift Coil Springs of LoadLifter 5000 Better for a 2022 Ram 1500
    I try to steer people away from the Air Lift 1000 for Coil Springs, like part # AL60828HD for your 2022 Ram 1500, just because the springs can pinch the bags where the Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 # AL57375 just require the 5 psi minimum to help keep the brackets from pinching the bag. Unless you were going over really rough terrain you shouldn't have been experiencing much difference in ride quality if the bags were only set to 5 psi. The only thing I can think of is if you were really bottoming...

  • Air Lift Helper Springs and Compressor System For a 2019 Ram 1500 Big Horn 2 Wheel Drive
    The only Air Lift Air Helper Springs available for your 2019 Ram 1500 Big Horn 2wd are the Kit # AL60828HD. The LoadLifter 5000 # AL88375 you found will only fit on 4wd trucks. The Springs # AL60828HD are rated for up to 2,100lbs of capacity which is going to be higher than your vehicle payload. Be sure to not exceed the manufacturers payload and towing ratings as the springs will not increase your capabilities, they only make it safer when hauling heavy loads. I recommend using the Air...

  • Why Won't The Air Lift 1000 Air Helper Springs AL60818HD Fit 2022 Classic & New Body Style Ram 1500?
    The Air Lift 1000 Heavy Duty Air Helper Springs for the 2022 Ram 1500 # AL60828HD does use different air springs and protectors than the kit for the Classic # AL60818HD trucks. This tells me the trucks do use different size coil springs for the rear suspension.

  • Suspension Enhancement Kit for 2019 Ram 1500 with 2.5 inch Lift Kit
    I have a suspension enhancement solution for your 2019 Ram 1500 but you can't use the Air Lift kits like the part # AL60828HD with lift kits. So instead you'd need to use the Timbren Kit part # TDR1500DS with lift spacers like # A25723-90AH00 for each inch of lift on each side of the axle to take up the extra space created by the lift.

  • How Come Air Lift # AL60828HD Requires Removal of Coil to Install
    The HD air bags from Air Lift part # AL60828HD are thicker material than the non-HD bags which is why you can't slip them between the coils of the rear suspension. Instead you have to push the bag through the top of the coil spring.
