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 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. Air Lift 1000 is a breeze to install with standard tools and comes with an easy-to-follow instruction manual.


Air Lift 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 Air Lift 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.

2019 Kia Sorento

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.

So far the air bags are still holding air . It does help with keeping the rear end of my Sorento from bouncing around when pulling my camper.

Mark

So far the air bags are still holding up well. no leaks in the air lines. The only issue was the valve stem came lose a bit and air leaked out , but a simple tightening of the valve stem with a valve stem tool and all has been good since.

2017 Kia Sorento

Reviewing the Air Lift 1000 kit 60860 for Kia/Hyundai SUV
Installed in a 2017 KIA Sorento LX. Like many other reviews claim, this was not easy to install although the factory video makes it look so, so simple. I followed the instructions for the first bag, it took me 2 and ½ hours to get it inside the spring coil. I used an exacto knife for cutting the hole, which worked very well. Not having a spoon type tire iron, I eventually settled on the handle of a large crescent wrench. After inserting the bag ½ way in, using the wrench to push on the part already in the spring brought the rest of the bag further in. Eventually I finally got the first bag inserted although it was twisted. Inflating the bag straightened it out. Starting on the second bag, I noticed it was much more pliable. It had been sitting in the Florida sun for the past 2 ½ hours. I folded it down as instructed, then folded it in ½ lengthwise and used zip ties to secure it. After sitting in the hot sun for another hour while I hydrated, it only took me 10 minutes to get the 2nd bag inserted and needed no other tools to assist. Carefully snipped the zip ties off and it popped into place. Running the air lines was simple enough. The hose clamps are very fragile, be patient, be careful or they will break.
Overall I am quite pleased with the performance of the bags. They make a big difference in how the KIA rides when towing. They hold pressure and are easy to inflate & deflate. I use a bicycle tire pump as I have no need to modify the pressure in route and didn’t see the need to spend the money on a remote control inflation system.



by:

Squeaks like mad. I've tried everything but there is just enough rub to make it loud. Also, it was a major pain to install, but that is more on the car than the bags. I'd like to have seen the clips for the hoses be made of a material that doesn't rust, like stainless, so I don't expect the air lines to hold up long with these thin metal clips. When the bags are firm enough to help with suspension droop, they end up having no give withing the coil spring to do much more than act as rubber stops. Overall, It's an ok product, but I'm not sure it's worth the effort. Two stars due to not using stainless or brass for something under the vehicle, otherwise three stars.

We are so appreciative of you for the support in tracking and our timely delivery of this great product.

2021 Hyundai Palisade

Easy install and it really firmed up the suspension on my Palisade! It only took a couple hours to install. I found it easier to leave the bag uncapped and push it through the coil spring with a twisting motion. It kinda just popped into place. If I followed the instructions and flattened the bag it became rigid and difficult to work with. Otherwise routing the tubing and connecting everything was straight forward.

2019 Hyundai Santa Fe

I think this is a great product and installation may be quite direct on some vehicles but very challenging on a 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe. I tried to install it myself but quickly realized that it would be extremely difficult without a lift. I took it to my mechanic who also realized that installing the easy way, by partially removing the coil spring and inserting the air bladder would not be possible, as the base coil on the spring assembly is smaller in diameter than the body of the coil. The bladder can't be pushed into the coil through the base of the disconnected coil. In some vehicles this is possible but not the Santa Fe. It can only be installed in the manner outlined in the instructions included in the kit from AirLift. The bladder needs to be rolled up as per instructions, and forced through the coils. But before that happens you need to reach into the coil with a VERY SHARP pocket knife and stab a 9/16" diameter hole through the rubber cap at the base of the coil. It sounds easy until you try it. The air line and clamp need to come up through that hole to attach to the bladder and the hole needs to be that size and in the center of the rubber cap. If the car is raised, supported on jack stands so wheels are off the ground, it's very difficult to find a body position that allows you to see into and reach into the coil and cut that hole in the center, especially on the passenger side where all the exhaust plumbing runs close to the coil. If I were younger I may have been more able to tough it out. If the unit works well and doesn't leak it will all be worth it, but I hate to think of having to take it back out and try the install again if it leaks.



by:

Getting the air bladders inside the springs is a chore.
I had some difficulty with the spring clips on the hose lines not holding the air pressure. But once I painted all the connections with Vibration Resistant Pipe sealant everything now works fine and I am very happy with the results.

Hyundai

Just received air lift kit today, will go to Hyundai dealer on Monday to see if they will install for me.



by:

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:

really helps towing my 18ft boat with kia sorento. reduces sag from tongue weight. bugger to install, but 2nd one was much easier. Do air squeeze, then fold, then use tie wraps to hold tight. cut tie wraps off when in place. Also remove tire for easier access. maintains air pressure well.



by:

Fantastic service with quality products!



by:

These work fantastic! It made all the difference when towing my camper. They are a bit tough to get in (understandingly because they must be a strong and thick material) but just keep at it and it will be well worth it. It helped level my back end. I highly recommend. I have a telluride and the camper has a 400lb tounge weight

2018 Kia Sorento

This product has greatly improved my towing capability and car handling. I tow a light travel trailer with a 2018 Kia Sorento V6. The rear of the Kia sits better/higher when under tow and the car handles much better. The only problem I encountered was finding someone to install the item. The local Air Lift authorized installer did not want to do it. After multiple other attempts to find an installer, a newly opened local shop took it on. It was a difficult install according to them, but they did a great job.



by:

Very helpful in helping me select just the right products. Deltas sooner than expected which is always nice. Thank you Justin B.

They leak and have to be periodolicly re filled with air. Suspect leaks are Fri airline connectors. Get the Firestone ones. Other than that they do the job, put on 3 mos. Ago.

First package lost in california when i live in canada and the price of shipping for quick delivery is very hi



by:
2018 Kia Sportage

If I could return them I would. First they are a bearcat to install. I had to take a vacuumed pump to them to get them flat enough to insert. Still it took a couple hours just to get them in. Mind you I am very mechanically inclined. That aside I would be happy if they worked. They do not. My Sportage staged 1” loaded without the airbags. All I needed was to get that inch back to clear my driveway. Airbags filled to 35psi made no difference in the ride height. $[xxx] wasted.



by:
2020 GMC Acadia

I can't get them to stay at 35psi. Under load they gradually drop to about 27psi, consistently. Did a leak test, can't find any connections leaking.

I would remove the end connections and cut them to make sure they are even level and flat then reconnect them.

Not well, one of the valves on top of the bag had a manufacturing error and wasn’t drilled out to allow airflow. I contacted the manufacturer and got no response. I drilled the hole myself.

    The Air Lift kit part # AL29PD that you referenced is a confirmed fit for your 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe SE and would do a great job providing additional suspension support. This will get rid of the rear suspension sag you are experiencing when towing.

  • Air Bag Kit Recommendation for 2022 Kia Telluride Towing Pop Up
    I would go with suspension enhancement like the Air Lift 1000 part # AL29PD which easily allow you to eliminate the sag when towing by adding air to the bags. Some might argue a weight distribution system is a "better" option but it's a lot more money, and lot more setup, and a bit overkill for a trailer as light as yours.

  • How to Prevent Squatting When Towing with a 2016 Kia Sorento
    If the back of your 2016 Kia Sorento is squatting when pulling your trailer, I do suggest installing some suspension enhancement. The Air Lift 1000 Air Helper Springs for Coil Springs # AL29PD will supply a load-leveling capacity of up to 1,000 pounds at 35 psi, but can then be aired down to 5 psi, making them feel nonexistent. This will keep your ride as close to stock as possible when not towing.

  • Troubleshooting Squeaking After Install of Air Lift 1000 Kit on Vehicle
    Most likely what happened is that when you torqued down the suspension components you removed to install the Air Lift kit part # AL29PD you did so without the weight of the vehicle on the suspension. This oddly enough can cause weird squeaks and rattles so you would want to loosen the bolts and retighten with the full weight of the vehicle on the suspension instead.
