Levels Your Load

Heavy loads can cause the back of your vehicle to sag and can 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.


The AirLift 1000 kit will help 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 send to your air springs to maintain normal ride height - even when you are hauling a heavy load. Simply adjust the air pressure in your air bags according to the size of your load.


Adjustable Air 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.


Easy Installation

AirLift 1000 is a breeze to install with standard tools and has an easy-to-follow instruction manual. This Air Lift system comes with manual inflation valves (1 for each spring). These are typically mounted on the bumper but can be installed anywhere on your vehicle in an easily accessible area. 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.


Satisfaction Guarantee

The Air Lift company 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.

So far so good, install wasn't that difficult and the directions on the video were spot on. Haven't been able to make use of them yet for towing but they definitely help with body roll. Thanks

Dodge Durango

Unfortunately there was a mix up with this order but was handled by etrailer to my satisfaction. I have installed a pair of Air Lift 1000 and they work great. They made a big change in how my Durango handles




by:
2017 Dodge Durango

Greatly improves handling on our 2017 Dodge Durango when towing our Travel Trailer. Installation was an ease. Curious to see how long the pnematic tubing clamps last in the New England salt during the Winter.




by:

Order was very quick and easy. Shipment arrived one day early. Outstanding job!




by:

Installed last night. Installation was simple and as described. This morning I checked pressures and system held overnight. This morning I loaded the trailer with some lumber and went for a drive. It was a small enclosed trailer so not real heavy but significant improvement when towing. The handling was like the trailer wasn’t connected and the ride was smooth. Even on bumpy county roads this system was noticeably better. Usually there was quite a bit of sway and movement on the county roads but with the bags, it was like I wasn’t even towing! For the price I would highly recommend.




by:

Love this system! Very affordable and easy to install. One year on it doesn't leak - not even a little bit. Works great on our 2015 Durango to prevent the back end of the truck from squatting when towing our 23' boat. Highly recommend this system!!

Doesn’t do much maybe 3/4 less drop

Review from a similar AirLift 1000 in Vehicle Suspension


Product arrived promptly. Very simple idea, but absolutely difficult as H&¿¿to install. Trying to squeeze the folded air bag between the coil Springs was an absolute nightmare. Maybe some springs on some vehicles have a larger spacing between the coil,but a 2019 Kia Sorento does not. It took almost 6hrs to install both sides. One trick that did help was to use a little silicone spray on the air bag where it was jammed into the coil spring. This helped make the bag slippery so it passed between the coil spring. Just don't get it all over the air bag or it will be too slippery to hold onto as you push it into place. The hose clamps are really a poor design, awkward to squeeze with pliers as you position them into place. So far bags appear to be holding air pressure. Time will tell has to how durable and dependable they will be.I installed them to assist with towing my camper and help reduce the squatting when towing.

Review from a similar AirLift 1000 in Vehicle Suspension


This lift system was exactly what the doctor ordered! We pumped up the airbags to the maximum, and then loaded my wife’s 2008 Toyota Sienna minivan up with 4+ passengers, camping supplies, a spare tire on the roof, and then attached a cargo rack to the hitch with an oversized cooler packed to the gills, firewood, and chairs without the bumper dropping an inch!!! It was an amazing sight to behold. I highly recommend this lift system!

Review from a similar AirLift 1000 in Vehicle Suspension


Installed on 15 Jetta tdi. I Removed wheel, then coil spring, (1 side at a time) folded bag like hot dog bun and installed into coil spring upside down (fitting facing down) cause it would have hit otherwise. Reinstalled, ran lines, mounted fill valve in bottom part of rear bumper and filled. It’s been a year and is still working perfectly.

The Insides of the Rear tires wore out within 2k miles of having these installed and aired up.

Looked at these for several days, watched a few YouTube videos and pulled the trigger. They went in easy no fuss. Hook the 25’ air stream to her maybe just maybe a inch of squat. Help control the bounce. Please with my purchase.

Still doing a very good job.

Review from a similar AirLift 1000 in Vehicle Suspension


Air tubing seems a little flimsy. But air bags appear robust and good quality - hence very difficult to fold and squeeze between coils of spring. It was a real battle and took over five hours total.




by:

Review from a similar AirLift 1000 in Vehicle Suspension


With the tubing going under the suspension I don’t see it lasting long. The air bags looked a little short for the springs but I could not find if that was normal in the instructions. I don’t like the way the airlines are exposed to the ground. I believe I should have just gotten the upgraded rear springs.The air bags went in fairly easy after I deflated them and put the cap on to keep them deflated. I had to go through the side of the springs not the bottom as instructed. So far the air bags them selves are working properly.


Comments
Thank you for your review. The bags press out on the coils to keep them from compressing instead of up and down. They are not designed to touch the top and bottom.

Review from a similar AirLift 1000 in Vehicle Suspension


I installed the AirLift 1000 air bags on my 1998 Toyota Sienna. I
flattened the bags per instruction but, I found that if I also folded
them in half vertically, they went in very easy. It took literally 30 seconds per side to install the bags inside the coil springs. I saw
where some people had to use a wooden spoon or blunt tool to force the
bags inside the coil springs. The method I used took no tools, and was
easy peasy.

The kit was shy 1 of the small hose clamps, otherwise everything
necessary for installation was there.

I'll be test driving for a couple of days and will update my review afterwards.

Review from a similar AirLift 1000 in Vehicle Suspension


This was easy to install and highly effective. I have a hitch mounted bike rack and when my Sienna is loaded up for a weekend of camping and biking, it used to ride low in the back. It also would scrape on some rougher dirt roads/mild 4wd roads. These air bags helped with that as well. I highly recommend these for people doing similar things.


Comments
Still totally agree with my initial assessment of these air bags. Id definitely recommend them!

Review from a similar AirLift 1000 in Vehicle Suspension


I installed this on my 2016 Ford flex. It prevented the car from sagging while towing a trailer. So it did the job but there is absolutely no way this could have been installed the way it was advertised. The only way to install it was to free the springs from the vehicle and slide it from the bottom of the springs. Also, one of valves was manufactured poorly (it didn't have the hole to push the air into). Because of that, I wasn't able to pump the air helpers independently. My workaround was to install the "T" so both air helpers are pumped via one valve.
In other words, it does the job, but the installation was much more difficult than advertised and one of the valves wasn't usable.


Comments
It sounds like one of the air bags is defective. Not to worry, this product has a 60 day worry free guarantee. We will contact you via email.

Review from a similar AirLift 1000 in Vehicle Suspension


We tried these and the rear suspension improves if we are carrying a bike rack, however after driving 4 hours or so the bags need to be reinflated. Not sure if this is typical or not. If there is a slow air leak I'm not sure how to easily locate it. Unfortunately, solid rubber shocks are not available for my vehicle.


Comments
One of the best ways to tell if you have a leak is to use soapy water and wipe it on the bags as soon as you fill it. If you see bubbles forming, it means that you most likely have a leak. It is more common for leaking to occur around the air valve, so I recommend keeping an eye around that area. This product does have a lifetime warranty available for bags and brackets, so you may be qualified to receive a new bag. I do see that Air Lift prefers to handle all of their own warranties, I highly recommend you contact Air Lift for a replacement under their warranty.

Review from a similar AirLift 1000 in Vehicle Suspension


I bought these to replace the blown bladders in my 2006 Winnebago Siteseer Worsehorse chassis. I'm a handy guy but was a little nervous about cutting out the old bladders and installing the Air Lift 1000 units. I found the customer comments very helpful especially the comment on using a heat gun to pull the old bladders out. The first one took me a couple of hours to figure out, the second one took me less than an hour to deinstall old and install new.

I REALLY appreciate the hose extensions for the valves. I installed them up in the engine compartment where I can easily access them for checking and topping off the air. For the units I replaced, I had to crawl up under the rig to check and fill--no more of that nasty, dirty crawl for this senior citizen.

Filled to 60 PSI, the first drive was noticeably different, the handling feels much stiffer than it had. We're launching out on a 3,600-mile road trip in the next couple of weeks, I'm looking forward to seeing how they handle on the open road.

My advice to folks-- the installation seems daunting, but the results are well worth the challenge. I encourage you to try this product.

After a year still very satisfied with these air lifts. Ive recommended them time and again to my fellow RVers

Review from a similar AirLift 1000 in Vehicle Suspension


Great kit overall. Do heed the install instructions, and not online forums for the 5th gen 4Runner. The instructions are correct, and forums are not.

Only think I did not like about the kit are the barbed fittings, and the flimsy plastic tee that’s included. The barbed fitting are extremely difficult to have the air line engaged into in a confined space under the vehicle. A push to connect fitting, or some other type of compression fitting would have been easier.

Review from a similar AirLift 1000 in Vehicle Suspension


The issue with the Bronco sport is that there are three very different suspension. I have the Big Bend version and after ruining an airbag we discover the kit is for the larger badlands coils and will not fit the base or Big Bend or the outer banks versions. It really is to bad manufacturers don’t do their homework. Great design but only fits one version of the Bronco Sport only the Badlands.


Comments
I have gotten in touch with the manufacturer and they have suggested that, since the Bronco has multiple different styles for the Sport, it is certainly possible that ford made some changes since they launched the Bronco. I have sent your information over to our customer service department for them get this situation resolved. They should be getting in touch with you soon.

  • Will the Air Helper Coil Springs Part # AL60824 Fit a 2012 Dodge Durango
    The Heat is actually a sub-model of a Dodge Durango which is similar to the R/T. They are not very common which is probably why you have not heard of them. The Heat is actually the only Dodge Durango that comes from the factory with only two rows of seats. With that being said as long as you do not have the Heat or R/T sub-models then the Air Lift AirLift 1000 Air Helper Springs for Coil Springs part # AL60824 will work well for you.
