Heavy loads can cause the back of your Lincoln Town Car 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 Lincoln Town Car'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 Lincoln Town Car 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 Lincoln Town Car 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 Lincoln Town Car at normal ride height. You can find the normal ride height of your Lincoln Town Car 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 Lincoln Town Car and return them for a full product refund.

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. 50542

Review from a similar Air Lift AirLift 1000 Rear Air Helper Springs


I have waited to do a reveiw on this until I had some mileage on them. My issue was too much sag in my 2007 Honda Odyssey when loaded. I very often have three or four bikes on a hitch platform rack plus camping gear, one or two adults and two kids. That load was just too much for the stock suspension, particularily the leverage generated by a platform bike rack carrying three or four bikes.. I first tried the SumoSprings on the van. I liked the idea that this could be easily added or removed as my needs dictated. The SumoSprings improved the sag but 4 bikes plus luggage on a 2500 mile trip showed that we were still sagging too much for my liking. I took the SumoSprings out had had the air bags installed by a local garage. I used two air lines with the schraeder valves sticking out of the bottom of the bumper on one side. I change the air pressure using a bike pump. This is very quick and easy to do. I normally leave 18psi in the bags when running empty and raise to 30 to 35 psi when I am going to be carrying a load. 18 psi to 35 psi takes four or five strokes with the pump per bag. Not hard at all. So far I have carried three bikes on my platform rack plus a full load of camping gear on a number of occasions. With the bags inflated to the rated 35 psi, the van sits completely level with the camping/bike load. The ride when loaded is pretty much equal to the ride empty without the bags but keeping in mind that the van handles differently due to the weight and leverage of the bikes hanging off of the rear. Empty I settled on the 18 psi as I am most happy with the ride of the van at that pressure. This solved my issues completely. Nothing bad to say about the SumoSprings, they just were not enough support for what I needed. Shipping from etrailer was quick and easy. 93738

I received this in just a few days and had a friend help me install it. I am VERY pleased with it! I had installed a leveling kit to the front end of my 2011 Dodge 1500 Sport, and after loading the bed with tools that I use for work, it sat down in the rear. These air bags are perfect. I put about 25lbs in to level out the truck. The truck rides better and looks great. We drilled out one of the bolt holes that secure my tag and installed the valve stem there. Works Great 107304


Comments

After having this product for a year, I can honestly say that I will never be without it! With the addition of this simple inexpensive product, other than just the looks I have noticed that my tire wear has dramatically improved! you know how cheap tires are... In the last year I have put about 40k miles on the truck. Im in the Agriculture business and see a lot of dirt roads and drive out into fields daily.I check the system air pressure any time I notice a change in my tire pressure. I havent seen any leaks and that was my main concern.Overall, I am extremely pleased with this product and believe it was worth every penny.Bottom line, if you are reading this review and are thinking about purchasing this product DO IT!

Review from a similar Air Lift AirLift 1000 Rear Air Helper Springs


There are 6 in our family and we like to play on our vacations. Which means lots of people and stuff in and on our mini-van, and a bike rack with 5 bikes on the back (and one bike inside). Our old Toyota Sienna clearly sagged under the burden, so when we got a 2011 Sienna which has a lower bumper to begin with, I was nervous about how it would handle everything, and particularly with the bike rack out back if it might even scrape the ground at times (bottom of hills, speed bumps...). I purchased these to help the suspension. They installed relatively easily, and we took our first trip of about 450 miles to Cape Cod and all went well. We had minimal if any noticeable drop in the back of the van, even fully loaded with all six of us, a full rooftop carrier, 5 bikes on the back, and extra seating inside (van sits 8) folded down and that available space also packed. We have only had these for a few weeks and I am a bit of a perfectionist, so these may very well deserve an excellent mark. The only thing that is keeping me from that is that I have only had them for a little while, so if they keep performing as they have so far, I would grade them as excellent. 90454

Review from a similar Air Lift AirLift 1000 Rear Air Helper Springs


Installation was a bear. Instructions depending where you get them from are mixed. Factory instructions on the web as a video shows not removing the springs and stuffing the bags through the springs. Instructions from e trailer and on paper supplied says to remove the springs and shocks and anti sway bar. I did not have to remove the shocks but did lower one side of the anti sway bar. My first attempt was to remove the spring approach which was not a good Idea unless you have a spring compression tool which I did not. This was a night mare. The other side I pushed the air bag through the spring much easier although still tough managing the bag in position and getting the air line to the bottom of the bag was challenging. I started around 8 am and finished late afternoon. Had to make a special trip to town (50 miles round trip) to find nuts to secure the air fitting as they were missing in the parts bag. Nuts are 5/16 35 thread. Never herd of such an odd thread. Had to pay over $4 for four nuts. Have not driven with the new bags yet but am hopeful based on reviews they will work just fine. My vehicle is a 2012 Toyota FJ cruiser. It was a very stressful experience but I probably save a couple hundred dollars on the self install. I am a former toolmaker/machine builder/welder. 112526

Review from a similar Air Lift AirLift 1000 Rear Air Helper Springs


I originally bought the Air Lift 1000 to prevent my 2011 Pathfinder from sagging when I pull my 4,500lbs boat. So far so good, the sag is gone. Other benefits are a firmer ride and less roll on the turns. If I posted the pics correctly you can see I ran each bag independently and I was able to mount each Schrader Valve on my 7 pin wire harness. This is a very easy DIY project. I suggest taking off the wheels and placing the bags in the springs from outside the vehicle rather then from underneath. 78302

I did the 7 pin myself. It was just plug and play. Not hard at all. Im not 100 sure if all 7 pins work because my trailer only requires 5 pins amd so far it has worked flawlessly. Hope this helps.

Review from a similar Air Lift AirLift 1000 Rear Air Helper Springs


Received the shipment promptly. Installation of the Air Lift 1000 kit took about 2.5 hrs on a 2013 Ram 1500 (4x4) due to the garage that was used was unheated (25 deg) and did not have the proper tools. Had two air leaks where the air hoses attached to the barbed nipples at the top of the air bags. The hose material is not very sturdy and would tear easily....plus it was very difficult to get the hoses to fit over the fittings all the way due to the limited access at the top of the spring....and the 25 deg temp didn't help!! Had to heat the air bags with a hair dryer to get them to push up through the spring coils. Would prefer to pay a little extra to have threaded fittings for the air hoses...at least for the air bag fittings. The ends with the fill valves went on OK since access was unlimited and I was able to twist and push the fittings on more easily. The hose flat-spring clamps are generally worthless as they bend out of shape when you apply pressure to position them over the fitting barbs. Ended up using motorcycle fuel line spring clamps (wire type) as they do not get out of shape when used. Have not put any weight in the back or pulled a trailer yet so I cannot comment on the load or leveling capabilities yet. 111483

Review from a similar Air Lift AirLift 1000 Rear Air Helper Springs


I installed the air lift I purchased into my 2012 Odyssey today. The install went well but I wanted to point out 2 things: First, since the under side of a 2012 rear control arm isn't exposed, it should be noted in the instructions that the air line must be secured to the airbag before reinstalling the coil spring and reconnecting the control arm bolt. Also, to avoid the exhaust pipe altogether the air tubing can be run through the lower control arms and center frame section, all etrailer would have to do is supply 2 small grommets to prevent wear. I included a picture of the installed airbag and a picture of the tubing running through the center frame section. Neil 45446

Review from a similar Air Lift AirLift 1000 Rear Air Helper Springs


I just installed my airlift 1000 kit in my 2014 Ram 1500. The installation only took about 90 minutes and only required a pair of pliers, a knife, a jack and some jack stands. I warmed the bags with my floor heater to make them more pliable and softened the air lines with hot water so they install on the nipples easier, as suggested by etrailer's tech tip videos. So far this seams to be a quality kit and is holding air. I haven't tested it under a load yet so I can't speak to that, although I am optimistic based on other reviews. Etrailer's customer support is outstanding and their shipping is quick. I couldn't be happier at this point. 153068

Review from a similar Air Lift AirLift 1000 Rear Air Helper Springs


The airbags would have been really difficult to install into the spring coil if we didn't have a vise and a vacuum pump, but that's all that was difficult. Everything else was very simple. We also ordered The Curt trailer hitch Custom Fit - Class III - 2" - C13105 at the same time as the airlifts...it was also fairly simple to install, but there are two of us, so don't know how it would have been if just Smitty tried by himself. Toyota doesn't install hitches on their 2013 Siennas...so we had taken it to U-Haul to have one put on. It was awful. The clearance was horrendous, so that's why we purchased the Curt from etrailer.com. We didn't take before and after pics, but there is at least 2" more clearance with the new hitch and it fits very nicely tucked up under the car. So, anybody want a U-Haul trailer hitch? We have one....cheap!! 81145

Review from a similar Air Lift AirLift 1000 Rear Air Helper Springs


Haven't put it to a complete test yet, but so far so good. Installation was pretty easy although I did not follow the instructions. I put the bag inlets at the top rather than the bottom because with them on the bottom the hoses hung really low and were pretty much guaranteed to catch on stuff and get damaged. Hose routing was very nice going up. Nice amount of hose for my Toyota Sienna and had some left over - I hate products that don't give you any extra length. Hoses were kind of hard to get on barbed fittings even with "spit lube". I was afraid to use any other sort of lubricant. Also I found it easier to insert the bags without following the instructions of squashing them flat and putting the cap back on. I just squashed them as needed as I put them into the springs. 72132

I am very satisfied with this setup, installed quickly and easily. The van rides and handles better weather empty or full, and it really is nice to not have everyone flashing me at night when the whole family is in the car(low beams). I installed these on my Sienna AWD van, and did invert them so the air connections were at the top of the spring for better air hose routing. In doing so, I lost the shims. The best part was that I emailed AirLift customer service to see if I could purchase the shims. Let's just say I am more than impressed with their response. You dont find customer service like this, they were responsive, and sent me new spacers asap. I would highly recommend these to anyone. 54148

2002 Odyssey. Old suspension. Solution? Replace all rear suspension. At that time, install the springs. Piece of cake. Follow drilling instructions accurately. FOR 3/4" HOLE, USE A 3/4" BIMETAL HOLE SAW FROM HARDWARE STORE. This ended up being the solution to drilling a 3/4 in hole. A no-brainer. Get this product. With new suspension, from center of hub to bottom of quarter panel, aprox 215 mm height. Air should be added or removed to maintain this height for proper traction and tire wear. Don't jack up the car with air. Let the car ride at the height it was designed and aligned to. 39179

Installed on 2014 Toyota Sienna using floor jack and jackstands. Would have been very easy with a lift. Installed per video except I did not have an angle drill to mount the bracket for the air inlet so had to improvise a bit. One thing I noticed after the install is that the little cushioning donuts that go on top of the airbags seem to have a taper and the wider part should probably go down. Mine of course were installed the opposite way and seem ok. I did not see any mention of this in the video. I did inflate to 25 psi before lowering the van and everything seems good 150216

First I must say I love this etrailer site. I bought a used Ford Wagon and had the Hitch and this air suspension system mounted by my mechanic. They thought it was a very good idea and that it should work as the product stated. I have not hauled anything yet. It is for my motorcycle trailer on a small car. Before this I had just the hitch installed on my SAAB and noticed a sag in the back-end. The SAAB was totaled by a Texting driver. I will update this when the motorcycle comes out in the Spring. 159831

These air bag helper springs have only been installed for a month now, so it is too early to attest to their quality. The installation went smooth and in accordance with the sales information. There was one caveat - the hose clamps for attaching the heat shield were too large, requiring me to make a trip to the hardware. I towed my camper up into the mountains and I had no problems with rear end sag and no control issues. If they continue to perform as they have thus far, I will be very pleased. 95319

Yes indeed, the AL60811 kit will fit on the rear of your 1998 Wrangler Sahara. If you will need to adjust the bags frequently a compressor kit may be advantageous. If you off-road with your Jeep, a system with a reserve tank may come in handy for other applications. Check out AL25592 or AL25572.

al60811 as I under stand you install air bags in coil spring what do you do with the rubber bump stop existing stock inside the spring. do you permanently remove the bump stop ?

comment by: dennis - 09/01/2013


2001

On the Chrysler vehicles, the stop just pulls out of the cup and is not reinstalled. There is not need for a bump stop once the airbags are in place. They will fulfill that role as well as suplememnt the coil springs.

Disappointed page says no drilling but you have to cut and drill. Good thing I am handy. They are installed and seem to be what we need now we will see how they handle when we go on the road. 48489

You can use the Firestone Union Tee # F3025-1
Firestone Union Tee for 1/4" Tubing
$6.29
in place of the plastic T-fitting that AirLift Provides. We have used this several times on the installs here in our shop.

Expert Answers about Air Lift AirLift 1000 Air Helper Springs for Coil Springs - Rear - AL60769Do you have a question about this Vehicle Suspension?


  • 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.

  • Eliminating Sag Caused by 7500 lb Boat Trailer Hitched to 2002 Chevy Suburban
  • The AirLift springs are not particularly difficult to install. They would install inside of your coil springs. A helper spring kit like the AirLift # AL60769 you referenced is primarily designed to help suspend cargo stored in the cargo area of your Suburban, not to compensate for tongue weight applied to the hitch. For your situation, a Weight Distribution kit is the best choice for leveling your Suburban. For a tongue weight of 800 lbs, I would recommend the Reese SC W/D kit,...

  • Rear Suspension Enhancement Options for a 2004 Cadillac Escalade EXT
  • I may have a solution that will work for you, however, we do not offer replacement air shocks for your 2004 Cadillac Escalade EXT at this time. We do offer coil spring air bag inserts like the AirLift 1000 Air Helper Springs, # AL60769. These air bags fit in the rear coil springs and can be manually inflated for additional support. Another option would be a bump stop replacement like the Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement System, # TGMRG25C, that you referenced. These are rubber springs...

  • Suspension Enhancement Recommendation For 2004 Chevrolet Tahoe 4x4
  • Personally, since you are in the market for a smoother ride, I recommend the Coil Sumo Spring Custom Helper # CSS-1094R, which, as an added bonus will help support heavy loads on your rear suspension. The Coil Sumo Spring, unlike the AirLift # AL60769 that you referenced, will not have to be adjusted or monitored. I have attached the installation directions, but, basically, they simply fit within your existing coil springs and secures with zip ties.

  • Suspension Enhancement Recommendation For 2012 Chevrolet Suburban LT Without Airride
  • If your 2012 Chevrolet Suburban is a 1500 series, the Air Lift Vehicle Suspension, part # AL60769, will work for you. These air springs fit inside your existing coil springs, adding support when hauling heavy loads, and Improves handling, braking and overall ride. No drilling is required for installation. The air pressure is adjustable from 5 to 35 psi. I would also recommend the Air Lift Load Controller II Compressor System for Air Helper Springs, part # AL25592. This system automatically...

  • 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...

  • 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

  • Weight Distribution System Recommendation for a 2012 Chevy Suburban 1500 2WD
  • You would be better off with a weight distribution system than suspension enhancement. Suspension enhancement like an air bag kit would help your tow vehicle sit more level while being towed, but the air bags would actually act as a fulcrum point which would lighten the front axle and affect braking and handling. A weight distribution system actually will take some of the tongue weight of the trailer and transfer it to the front axle of the trailer. This will help you tow level as well...

  • Weight Distribution for a 5,000 Pound Boat Trailer and 2011 Chevy Avalanche
  • Since the max tow rating of your 2011 Chevy Avalanche is based on using a weight distribution system, all you really need is to get the proper weight distribution system. To choose a weight distribution system you will need to go by the total tongue weight of the set up. This is calculated by taking the tongue weight of the trailer, when loaded and ready to tow, and adding to that the weight of anything loaded behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. The tongue weight on boat trailers...

  • Suspension Enhancement for 2007 Chevy Avalanche with OEM Auto-Leveling Suspension
  • According to Air Lift, the # AL60769 is not compatible with vehicles equipped with the OEM auto-leveling suspension, i.e, factory air shocks and would therefore not work on your Avalanche. A Timbren system, like part # TGMRYS4 would be compatible with the auto-level system. The advantage of a Timbren system is that is is passive, and will not come into play unless the bed of your Avalanche is loaded. As more weight is added, the springs become stronger and more resistant. Keep in mind...
