Air Lift Vehicle Suspension - AL52202

If your vehicle carries big-time loads, then it needs big-time suspension support. These microcellular urethane springs are affordable and require no maintenance. They fit easily between your frame and rear axle and give you the support you need.


Features:

  • Adds support to your existing rear suspension and improves handling and overall ride
    • Prevents sagging and reduces bottoming out that results from hauling heavy loads
    • Decreases unsafe and uncomfortable bounce and sway, making your ride smooth and easy
    • Extends the life of your leaf springs by giving them extra support when needed, thus preventing damage and saving you money
    • Does not affect the ride of your vehicle when you are not carrying a load
  • Helps with problems such as off-center loads, body roll, and sway when turning sharp corners, because each spring works independently
  • Requires no maintenance - just install and ride
  • Bolts on between your frame and rear axle
  • Constructed of microcellular urethane foam
    • Provides a smoother ride than rubber load supports or steel overload springs
    • Works well in harsh, cold weather
  • Custom fit for your vehicle
  • Made in USA
  • Lifetime warranty


Big-time loads can cause big-time damage to your suspension and disturb the overall harmony of your automobile. Massive loads in your cargo area put unneeded stress on your rear axle and simultaneously raise the nose of your vehicle. When this happens, your front tires don't make sufficient contact with the road, causing a reduction in steering performance and braking. If you consistently haul or tow heavy loads, then you need extra support that both improves your ride and protects your vehicle's suspension system.


AirCell, Air Lift's helper system, protects your existing suspension from damage caused by hauling heavy loads, frequent use or both. Its microcellular urethane foam construction gives you a smoother ride than rubber load supports or steel overload springs, and AirCell springs require less maintenance and attention than air spring systems. Even better, AirCell is about half the cost of steel overload springs.


AirCell is easy to install and utterly maintenance free. All you have to do is install it and leave it on your vehicle. It doesn't come with air lines or fittings, just brackets that can be bolted on quickly and easily. Typically, AirCell springs mount between the axle and the frame. They often replace the factory bump stops.

Speaker 1: Today we're going to take a look at the Air Lift AirCell Custom Helper Spring Kit for a rear axle. This is a custom fit part. It is designed to fit the 1999-2010 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra trucks. And on a custom fit part I always like to recommend for you to go to our website and use our Fit Guide. Put in your year and model vehicle and it'll show you if this'll work for your application.Now if your vehicle carries any big-time loads then it needs big-time suspension support. These microcellular urethane springs are affordable and they require no maintenance.

Basically what they'll do is they add support to your existing rear suspension and improves handling and overall ride. Will prevent sagging and reduces bottoming out that results when you haul heavy loads, and it decreases unsafe, uncomfortable bounce and sway so it makes your ride smooth and easy.They do extend the life of your leaf springs by giving them extra support when needed, thus preventing damage, saving you money. And that does not affect the ride of your vehicle when you're not carrying a load. It will also help with problems such as off-center loads, body rolls, swaying when turning sharp corners because each spring works independently.They do require no maintenance. Just you install them and ride.

They bolt on between your frame and rear axle and they are constructed of a microcellular urethane foam so they do provide a smoother ride than your rubber loaded supports or steel overload springs. And they do work well in harsh, cold weather.They are custom-fit for your vehicle and they are made in the USA. Comes with everything shown here on the table, the air cells, all the brackets, hardware needed, and a nice set of detailed instructions.But that should do it for the review on the Air Lift AirCell Custom Helper Spring Kit for your rear axle.

These work great easy install and good clearance. Normal non tow ride is a bit stiffer but I like it. 520880

Review from a similar Air Lift AirCell in Vehicle Suspension


I installed these helper springs on my 2006 Ford F-350 with dual rear wheels. I did the installation with the truck on the ground -- I wanted to see how many spacers to use, and I wanted to be sure, the first time, to get the alignment over the axle right. It wasn't too inconvenient; there is lots of room under the truck. As the picture shows, I used two spacers on each side. With nothing in the truck bed, there is still about half an inch of free space. The spring helpers will not affect the ride unless I carry a few hundred pounds or go through a large pot hole. The installation should have taken me less than an hour. I didn't have the right sockets, though, much less an air wrench, so I had to use 15-mm and 14-mm box-end wrenches to remove the jounce bumpers and install the spring helpers. The jounce bumpers were stuck, so it was a good workout -- about two and a half hours. For my truck, the center mount on the bracket worked perfectly. I attached the spring cup there and slid it slighly toward the back of the truck, using the slot in the cup. The installation was easy, and it was fun. It would have been easier with the right tools, though. 582057

Fit great on 2012 ram 1500 SLT short bed standard cab 4wd. Very noticeable improvement with payload and towing. Although when I get near the point of needing these while towing , I usually also have the WD hitch set up as well. Not very noticeable when empty unless you hit some real rough tracks or a dip in the road. Worth the money! Very easy install, took me longer to find my jack stands and beer than installation :) 659062

Excellent product. Installed them on my 2007 RAM 2500 C and I pull a 11000 trailer. Trailer settles down on the lifts, truck stays level and it towed like a charm. A little bit of a fit issue but mechanics figured it out. 331544

Ask the Experts about this Air Lift Vehicle Suspension

Do you have a question about this Vehicle Suspension?


  • Suspension Enhancement Recommendation for a 2003 Chevy Silverado with Camper in Bed
  • If I were you I would go with a jounce style suspension enhancement like the Air Lift AirCell part # AL52202 instead of the air kits. The air kits work well but they require constant monitoring of air pressure and have slightly more difficult installs. The Air Lift AirCell also tends to have a smoother unloaded ride quality than the Timbrens that are very popular as well.

  • Suspension Enhancement for a 2000 Chevy Silverado 2500 Light Duty
  • The heavy duty suspension packages typically include overload springs. This is an additional spring or springs that will be either on top of or on the bottom of the leaf spring stack on a truck. There could also be other components that are different that can cause the truck to ride higher. Since you do not want to worry about a compressor or adding/removing air I recommend an Air Lift brand jounce style spring kit, # AL52202. These are helper springs that do not take air and they are...

  • Rear Suspension Kit Recommendation for 2000 Chevy Silverado 4x4 Long Bed Standard Cab
  • Timbren does not have a fit for your truck, but we have a similar Air Lift AirCell Jounce style kit part # AL52202 which is a fit and would work well on your 2000 Chevy Silverado 4x4 with a standard cab and long bed. A coworker of mine has had both the AirCell kit and a Timbren kit on his truck and he much preferred the AirCell as the ride was much smoother.

  • Which is Better Air Bags or AirCell Helper Springs for a 2008 Chevy Silverado 3500 Dually
  • The AirCell helper springs # AL52202 do not have an official listed capacity. But considering that you have a 2008 Chevy Silverado 3500 dually you would be much better off with the air bags because a big truck needs a beefier system. Plus it has more versatility than helper springs like the AirCell. I recommend Firestone Ride-Rite kit # F2250 because it is a versatile kit that will work with a 5th wheel/gooseneck hitch if you have one or plan on getting one. I have linked a video showing...
