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.

Video Transcript for Review of Air Lift Vehicle Suspension - Rear Axle Suspension Enhancement - AL39PD

Hello everybody, this is Jeff at etrailer.com. Today we're gonna take a look at the Air Lift 1000, Air Helper Springs for your rear coil springs. Now this is a custom fit part. It is designed to fit the 2017 to 2020 Buick Envision, also fits the 2018 and newer Chevrolet Equinox, and GMC Terrain vehicles. And on a custom fit part like this, I do like to recommend for you to go to our website, use the fit guide, put in your year and model vehicle, and it'll show if this will work for your application. Now this kit here will provide a thousand pounds of load leveling support to improve safety and ride quality.

These will support your existing rear coil spring suspension when you're hauling or towing. These will help keep your vehicle level when you're hauling a heavy load, improves the steering and braking performance, and helps maintain headline A. It will even reduce tire wear and OEM suspension strain. This does let you manually adjust the air pressure to get even load distribution and support that you need. And with the installation of dual airlines you can inflate each spring independently for side to side leveling of any off center loads.

The adjustable air pressure for these is five PSI to 35 psi. These do diminish sway, absorb road shock, improve stability, and ride quality. And these are constructed of a durable molded polyurethane. These do install inside your vehicle's rear coil spring suspension. They do use the manual inflation valves which are typically mounted on your bumper, so they're very easy to reach.

It does include everything shown here on the table. The two air springs, the two lower protectors, the air line tubing, the hardware you need, the shredder valves for the manual inflation, and some zip ties that take up any slack in the airline tubing. Now you can add a compressor system within cab gauges to help monitor and automatically adjust the air pressure. Those items we do sell separate on our website. These parts are made in the USA.

A few specs, again the load leveling capacity is up to 1000 pounds. Now one thing you do wanna make sure you know is the Airlift 1000 springs will not increase your vehicle's weight carrying capacity, so you do wanna make sure not to exceed the manufacturer's recommended weight limit. And it does come with a nice instruction manual that to show you how this installs and how they operate. But that should do it for the review on the Airlift 1000 Air Helper Springs for your rear coil springs..

by:

I needed a little more clearance for my rear cargo carrier. This keeps it from draging when it is heavily loaded (such as an electric wheelchair). My son installed the air lifters with no trouble. He was able to run the air line up though the rear finder to my gas fillup so that it could not be seen until you opened the gas fill door. The ride is a little rougher, but they have held up well over the past year.




by:

The kit was complete, fit perfect and came quickly. Although I did have a defect in one of the air springs, I contacted airlift and they sent out a replacement right away. Top notch service from etrailer and airlift

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.


Comments
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.

Review from a similar AirLift 1000 in Vehicle Suspension


2020 Ford Explorer install. These are well made in the USA. Being robustly made, they do not fold into a "hot dog bun" shape as indicated in the instructions. The Hulk might but I could not. I was able to get them into a "horizontal stomped beer can" shape which I made work. It took about an hour for the first one and less for the second one. I used a plastic dead blow handle to assist since the hammer end allowed for a good handle as I pushed with the actual handle. I have dual exhausts so I routed up through the body rails above the mufflers. I found holes in the A-arm, just rear of the middle hole, that allowed for the air line to be routed back and up. I didn't go forward as the directions illustrated since I would it would not help my situation. Product - A+ Easy of Install - B-


Comments
Works great during the two times I actually used them. Dont inflate too much or youll hear squeaking sounds that will drive you insane.

I own a 2004 Kia Sorento and About a year ago i purchased an Air Lift AirLift 1000 Vehicle Suspension from you to enhance the suspension of my SUV. At first i was skeptical but after installation and a short road test it was obvious the improvement on handling , i will recommend it to anyone . Here are some pictures after one year of use.

Review from a similar AirLift 1000 in Vehicle Suspension


I’m very happy with the air coils. I’ve had them for two years now without any issues. I originally installed them because I tow my boat with 2016 4runner . The rear end would sag quite a bit when towing. I installed these air coils and immediately corrected the situation. What I didn’t know is how much it would improve daily driving. The truck handles much better now since installing. The air coils have completely removed anybody roll. Giving me much more confidence when taking corners. I installed the Onboard air compressor, figuring I would be raising and lowering air pressure in the coils when towing and not towing. What I found is setting the coils at 15 psi was all I needed for both towing and daily driving. So long story short, save some money and don’t buy the onboard compressor. You can just set these air coils with a pump to your desired psi and leave it. In my case I have not had to add or lower psi in over a year. So the bags keep their pressure.

As far as install they’re pretty easy. There’s tens of [onine] videos that are very helpful. I did try the one method of smashing the bag and sliding through the coil and found it to be too difficult. I ended up dropping the axle and pulling the coils. It also made things easier when cutting the bump stops. I ran in my hoses from the top of the axle down. I felt it created less pinch points and was easier to route.

Good luck

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

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.

Review from a similar AirLift 1000 in Vehicle Suspension


I was experiencing bottoming out on my '03 Nissan Pathfinder by just adding passengers or groceries. At first, I thought about replacing the rear springs, but after installing the Air Lift system I was more than satisfied. I can increase pressure to 25 psi for cargo/heavy loads and then decrease to about 12 psi for everyday driving. My vehicle sits up like it was new and no longer sags or bounces. After 12 months and 9,000 miles I'm glad I went with this upgrade. Take your time and follow instructions for a perfect install.

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


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.

Review from a similar AirLift 1000 in Vehicle Suspension


Product installed easily on my Toyota Sienna AWD and inflated correctly with no leakage. I ended up using two loom clamps and self-tapping screws that I purchased at [local] Hardware store. Had hoped to use only wire ties, but realized that loom clamps make for a much more secure installation. The ride is much stiffer at 35psi especially since the van is empty at the moment. Still need to experiment around with pressures that are ideal for an empty van and one filled with passengers and gear.


Comments
I suggest lowering your 2015 Sienna air springs to 5 psi for a smoother ride when you are not towing or loaded up. When you are loaded, inflate to 30 psi.
-- Etrailer Expert Sierra K - 11/02/2021
This Air Lift kit has been working well for me. No leakage at all. I have taken many road trips to local National Forests and just got back from a 4500 mile trip to the Badlands. I have found that keeping it at 10 psi is just about right for my driving style. This kit is the way to go to level out your ride when you are carrying a lot of payload.

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.


Comments
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!

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.

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


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.

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.

Review from a similar AirLift 1000 in Vehicle Suspension


Just installed my new set of air bags (AL60815 Air Lift AirLift 1000 Air Helper Springs for Coil Springs) on my 2008 Odyssey.
I purchased this model as a replacement to the previous air bags (F4179 Firestone Coil-Rite Air Helper Springs) that I purchased from etrailer four years ago.
I had to replace them because this winter one of the push on fittings broke off one of the air bags.
I have been using those air bags for four years towing my 2200 lbs tent trailer.
The only complaint I had was that sometimes air would seep out after towing for a few hours. I suspected it was from the push on fittings.
That was the reason I choose this model as they have barb fittings and spring clamps. Very positive connections and tight fits.

Installation was very easy as all the holes in the tables were already done from the last install.
1. Somethings to keep in mind, if your shocks are a few years old consider changing them at the same time.
2. Remember to support the table with a jack while removing and installing the retaining bolt for the table. Failure to do that will damage the threads on the bolt and rapidly decompress the spring.
3. When drilling the hole in the table don’t rush. Centering the hole so the valve on the air bag does not force against the edge is very important. Luckily there is a template in the instructions booklet.
4. Running the air line to the passenger side bag can be done through the center cross member.

I mounted my valve inside the van to keep it clean and out of the way. Using the tee to connect both bags to a single valve will facilitate inflation and ensure they are both at the same pressure.

I will be ordering another set of these air bags when I replace this Odyssey with a newer model in a few years.
Kit is very complete. All the parts I needed and did not have to run to the auto parts store.
Didn't use the heat shield because where I ran the line it is protected from the exhaust pipe.









Comments
Great so far. I had the opportunity to use them all last summer pulling my pop up. Never had an issue of leaking fittings. Very happy with the product. Will definitely purchase again when I trade in my current Odyssey for a newer one in a few years.
