Ride Control gives the suspension system on your light-to-medium-duty truck, van or SUV unrivaled support. With these air springs installed, you'll experience the same comfortable, smooth and safe ride that you're used to enjoying when you're not hauling. Plus, Ride Control reduces the strain that heavy loads can put on your vehicle, saving you money in potential repairs.


Everything on your vehicle suffers from the stress of hauling or towing heavy loads - your brakes, your tires and your handling ability. Even your headlight aim can be thrown off. Without some kind of reinforcement for your factory suspension system, you could be putting the life expectancy of your vehicle at risk. Air Lift's adjustable air spring kit, Ride Control, gives your suspension the extra support it needs when you are carrying heavy cargo. By providing equal load distribution, Ride Control lessens the stress that your truck has to endure.


Ride Control's air bags are adjustable from 5 to 100 psi, so you can get the perfect amount of support for any size load. And the springs can be inflated independently of one another for front-to-rear and side-to-side leveling. The system's also easy to install and even easier to maintain.


Ride Control 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.


An exclusive alignment tool is included with your Ride Control kit. This tool allows you to install each air spring so that it is centered perfectly between your vehicle's leaf spring and frame. This helps to prevent damaged caused by the spring rubbing against underbed components, ensuring lasting suspension support.


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.


These adjustable air springs come with a lifetime warranty with no mileage restrictions. In addition, Air Lift is so sure that you will benefit from their air spring suspension system that they offer a 60-day satisfaction guarantee. Install and use Ride Control 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. Now that's confidence.

The product its self and etrailer I would definitely give 5 stars to, but the instructions given suck. They have every trucks instructions in the same manual that the air bags will fit on to so you have to constantly bounce around to find your next step. I went through and highlighted all the stuff that was intended for my vehicle and read it until I could repeat it from memory. I had read some other reviews on other sites complaining about how you have to constantly keep pressure in them to keep them from self destructing. I would not recommend putting these on if your not going to install the air compressor kit as well because they will loose air pressure no matter what. I know it doubles the cost of installing these but if your going to do it, do it right. It took about 4 hours to install both bags and run the airlines to the compressor and about another 2 hours to install the compressor. I am not a mechanic but am fairly inclined, I would install these again and recommend them to anyone trying to level and smooth out their ride. 65159

Review from a similar Air Lift Ride Control in Vehicle Suspension


Install these on my 2015 Chevy Colorado. I pull a fairly big travel trailer and although it's no problem pulling it I had noticed that over the last couple of years the rear of the truck was gradually sagging more. The AirLift fixed it right up. The ride now inspires more confidence and I definitely have more control over the whole rig. Installation was fairly easy. I'm pretty handy but quite green when it comes to vehicles so I would say it's accessible to anyone with a handy thumb. I even managed to install them without removing the wheels. It took a bit longer and required more up and down with the car jack but since I did it a couple of hours at a time over a couple of days it allowed me to still drive during the installation process. I'm am a huge fan and would recommend it to anyone. 389436

Review from a similar Air Lift Ride Control in Vehicle Suspension


Installed this on my new Tacoma last year. Needed a little bit of load assistance when moving firewood. They have worked fine after one years use. I didn't remove the wheel when installing so it was a little tight working on the install. If I had to do it again I would definitely remove the wheel for easier access. It's still a straight forward easy install either way. Would buy these again no question. 465020

Review from a similar Air Lift Ride Control in Vehicle Suspension


This kit is fantastic! After loading my newly acquired '65 Fairlane drag car onto my newly acquired double-axle car trailer I could hardly believe the sight of my '10 Tacoma sagged down so low the safety chains were literally lying on the parking lot! I lost 5+" of suspension, and along with it the nice ride, positive handling, and safe control of my truck. I installed this product the next weekend, loaded back up, and 45 lbs of air on each side brought the truck right back to level (and safe). Ride is as if the trailer wasn't even there. A couple of installation tips to offer...I jacked up the truck one side at a time, allowing the axle to hang by the suspension, then placed a second jack under the axle. This allowed me to jack the axle up to the perfect height for installing the lift chambers without crushing or stretching them. Also, Toyota graciously left four additional holes in the underside of the rear bumper that were just the right size for the valve assemblies. They worked great for making a clean installation of the airlines. This product definitely delivers what it claims! 44777

Review from a similar Air Lift Ride Control in Vehicle Suspension


( 2012 Chevrolet Silverado LT 4x4 EXT cab 6'6' bed) Easy to install, directions are straight forward for a typical install, and mine wasn't a typical install but altered some brackets for easier installation, problem was I installed the 10 bolt base rail mounting kit(30035) for a fifth wheel as directed per instructions and the short brackets ended up 1" in where the bracket for the air lift need to sit, took my short brackets off and took them to a well qualified machine shop and had them modify them and the brackets to the air lift too make them a one piece unit, other than that I would have to re-drill holes for the fifth wheel thru the frame and move everything back and I didn't want to sacrifice any more holes in the bed and frame, I suggest Air lift and Reese hitch review the bracket and measurements to help improve a not so typical installation and also might want to look at different bracket measurements for other fifth wheel installs, I know this could only be a possible one off situation.. On an ending note I was rather surprised with the look and the ride after the install and I don't foresee any issues when I put the truck under a load I would recommend this product everyone if they want to beef up the 1/2 ton truck for a more comfortable and safer ride, The install after bracket modifications only too an hour for both sides. A++ product!!! 115136

Review from a similar Air Lift Ride Control in Vehicle Suspension


I had the Air Lift kit professionally installed. My mechanic was very impressed at the quality of the product and ease of installation. I am very impressed with the quality this product provides. I had it installed on a recently purchased 1993 Dodge Caravan. This van is a handicapped accessible vehicle for my wife who has MS. We tried to get into a newer vehicle but they are too expensive. The reason for the purchase was to improve the sagging rear suspension this van has. It's 20 years old with only 43,000 miles on it. I will be purchasing Air Lift products in the future and recommending them to my family and friends. 115138

I installed the system myself without any issues in a couple of hours. I keep about 400 lbs. of tools in the bed of the truck and needed the lift to bring the truck to it's correct operating level. The weight was changing the angles on my two piece drive shaft causing vibration and eating up carrier bearings. It's performing great...Tom in Bama 67365

This is the second time I've used AirLift products. I had this system on a vehicle for over 6 years and it was still working perfect when I sold the vehicle. The system is easy to install and I like the fact that there is no drilling requirement to mount the equipment. 71881

What year Tacoma did you install them on? I have a 2013 TRD double cab and Im not seeing the mounting holes shown in the installation guide. Thanks

I checked Jons order notes and it was on a 2012 Tacoma. If your Tacoma is a 4WD model, then the Air Lift kit AL59561 is the correct kit. It fits all 4WD and 2WD Pre-Runner models. 2WD Tacomas use AL59564 with the exception of trucks equipped with a rear-sway bar, ie Pre-Runner and X-Runner. The mounting holes will be on the frame, just forward of the axle.

Review from a similar Air Lift Ride Control in Vehicle Suspension


These were perfect. I needed some extra suspension due to towing my max capability. (6400lb gross wt 24 foot trailer with a 2015 Chevy Colorado LT 4wd) The truck had too much "bounce" on it every Time when hit a hole in the road even with equalization bars. But these air bags smoothed the ride out and help with equalization. Installation was a breeze. Did it myself in 2 hours with 0 problems. Kit comes with all you need minus the compressor assembly. I used Air Lift WirelessONE Compressor System for Air Helper Springs - Hand-Held Remote - Single Path Item # AL25870. (Eliminates need for cab wiring And works great) . All in all, Great product, Great price, easy installation and no problems. 406027

Review from a similar Air Lift Ride Control in Vehicle Suspension


Shipment was within a few hours of my order and delivery was on time and on target. Great job. I got the spring helpers around 1pm and they were on the truck by 5. I left the wheels on and still had access to everything. I recommend you chock the front tires, set the brake and lift the back end by the hitch just a few inches. It will IMO make things a heckuva a lot easier to get at. In my case, it was a must, because I had only a six inch socket extention to get the bump stops off. Raising the back end a bit allowed me to get the socket in between it and the axle. Also, instead of holding the upper bracket in place with one hand while attempting to fasten the bump stop bolt with the other. I found it easier to secure the upper bracket with the supplied j-hooks and snug it up to the frame first. It made installation of the stops just a little easier. Now granted this is my fault for not reading the details better. But if there was anything I could change. I really really really wish a tee for single path inflation was supplied with the kit. Oh well, live and learn. The spring helpers wer put to the test the next day when we used the truck to tow our RV to the campsite. Very pleased etrailer and the Air Lift spring helpers performance, both are highly recommended. 388644
