Air Lift Vehicle Suspension - AL52204

  • Air Lift
  • Jounce-Style Springs
  • Standard Duty
  • Rear Axle Suspension Enhancement

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.

Video Transcript for Air Lift Vehicle Suspension - Rear Axle Suspension Enhancement - AL52204 Review

Today we're going to take a look at the Air Lift, the AirCell custom helper spring kit for the rear axle. This is a custom fit part. It is designed to fit the 2002 and newer Dodge RAM and RAM 1500, 2500, 3500 series trucks, and also the 3500 cabin chassis model. Now on a custom fit part I always like to recommend to go to our website, use our fit guide. Put in your year and model vehicle, and it will show you if this will work for your application. Now this part will add support to your existing rear suspension, improves handling, and overall ride. It will prevent sagging, reduced bottoming out that will result from when you haul heavy loads.

It will eliminate any unsafe, and uncomfortable bounce and sway. Makes your ride a lot smoother and easier. It will extend the life of your lead springs by giving them extra support when needed. Thus preventing any damage, and saving you money, and it will not effect the ride of your vehicle when you're not carrying a load. This will also help with problems such as off center loads, body roll and sway when turning sharp corners, because each spring does work independently. It will require no maintenance.

Just install it and ride, bolts on between your frame and your read axle. Come with everything show here. Comes with the two springs themselves, the mounting brackets, the two spring cups, the four cup spacers, instillation hardware, and a nice set of detailed instructions on how to install it. Now the spacers they include, those are to be used when you want to increase the loaded vehicle height. The springs themselves, are constructed of a micro cellular urethane foam. Provides a nice smooth ride, compared to the rubber load ones, or the steel overload springs, and they do work well in harsh cold weather.

They are custom fit for your vehicle, and all these parts are made in the USA. That should do it for the review on the Air Lift AirCell custom helper spring kit for the read axle.

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

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

Review from a similar Air Lift AirCell in Vehicle Suspension


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

Do you have a question about this Vehicle Suspension?


  • Rear Axle Air Spring Kit for 2019 Ram 3500 4WD Cab and Chassis
  • We do have a rear axle air spring kit that will fit your cab and chassis 3500, Firestone # F2478, but AirLift does not have an option for your cab and chassis 3500. This Firestone rear air spring setup fits with or without factory top overload springs but it does require that you have at least 8-inches of space between the outside of the frame and the inside of the tire. With these springs you can use a compressor kit that will make it much easier to find the pressure sweet spot for...

  • Does Air Lift AirCell Custom Rear Helper Spring Kit, Part # AL52204, Have a Specific Weight Rating
  • My contact at AirLift does not show a specific weight load rating for this product, the AirCell Custom Rear Helper Spring Kit, Part # AL52204. However, he commented that this product is often used on dump trucks and other heavy duty vehicles that routinely carry a heavy load on the rear axle. These are a good choice for your Ram 3500 Dually provided that it is going to be under the load of your trailer at all times. If not loaded by the trailer tongue weight, he cautioned that you might...

  • Will Installation of the Air Lift AirCell Custom Helper Springs Affect Ride Quality
  • Unless you hit a massive bump you aren't going to feel the Air Lift AirCell Custom Helper Springs Kit # AL52204 when unloaded. That's the beauty of the system, when your truck is loaded you will have extra support as the suspension rides lower in it's travel, but when unloaded the # AL52204 wouldn't affect anything. Also, not having to mess with air lines, or maintain air pressure in the bags is nice. This product only installs on the frame of your 2003 Dodge Ram 2500. It basically replaces...

  • Suspension Enhancement for a 2012 Dodge Ram 3500 Cab and Chassis
  • The Air Lift AirCell kit, # AL52204, that you have referenced is my top choice. These springs will replace the factory jounce bumpers. They are larger and will work much better than the factory jounce bumper. However, there is a chance that this will not solve the problem. I recommend inspecting the suspension on your truck to determine if something is broken and causing the sound. You cannot install suspension enhancement unless the vehicle suspension is in good working order. I...

  • Air Lift AirCell Helper Springs Kit on 2003 Dodge Ram 2500 with 3 Inch Suspension Lift
  • The Air Lift AirCell Helper Springs # AL52204 are designed to replace the factory bump stops on your 2003 Dodge Ram 2500. If your lift has increased the area from the bump stop to the truck's frame then you will need to use spacers, # A25723-90AH00, to fill the empty space. The AirCell kit will not raise the height of your truck while not loaded. The springs are there for additional support when the load is heavy enough to cause sag but they aren't designed to lift the truck at all.

It prevents sagging and reduces bottoming out as a result of carrying heavy loads, like when towing your fifth wheel.

  • Will Air Lift Vehicle Suspension Work With 2004 Dodge Ram Pickup That Is Lowered 4 Inches
  • You may need to take a quick measurement to be sure the Air Lift Suspension, part # AL52204 will work on your 2004 Dodge Ram that has been lowered 4 inches. The Air Lift Spring along with the mounting bracket and the cup spacer will require right at 6 inches between your axle and the mounting location for your jounce stop. If you have at least 6 inches of clearance this system will work for you. If by chance you have more than 6 inches space you can use the included additional spacers...

  • Can Air Lift Suspension Enhancement Kit Fit 2004 Dodge Ram with 6 inch Lift
  • Air Lift does make spacer kits that allow their suspension enhancement kits like the part # AL52204 to fit on trucks with lift kits. For example they have the part # AL52440 which is a 4 inch spacer. Oddly enough 6 inch lifts commonly only add right at 4 inches of suspension travel so a 4 inch spacer like this would be what you'd need. You'd need to determine how much of your lift is a suspension lift to determine if this is the correct spacer kit you'd need. You could contact the manufacturer...
