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.

Review from a similar Ride Control in Vehicle Suspension


Product was as advertised, and the install went smoothly. Toyota Tacomas are infamous for sagging rear ends, and these air springs handle that well. For now I can only comment on installation, as I've yet to load the truck with a heavy trailer. All parts can be mounted comfortably by jacking up the rear axle and removing a wheel. I didn't have any alignment troubles, and the instructions were specific to these parts and my truck. Buyers should be aware that air springs require regular checks to make sure they are inflated to a minimum pressure. I can easily reach in and squeeze the spring to check inflation, and it's faster than pulling out a pressure gage.


Comments
Ive now crossed the country several times with a 2,500 lb travel trailer. The air springs leveled the truck well, and no one flashes their high-beams at me anymore after dark. I will concur with the review below that the truck now bottoms out much sooner when empty and with reduced pressure in the springs. That may be normal, but its literally shocking and unexpected.

great company to work with, they sent me a new air bag when mine had a leak and the shipping was fast. the install was a little difficult, had to drill holes in the frame. i have the silverado 1500 classic 07 so most aftermarket parts need some modifications anyways. i’m now able to haul comfortably without “trailer squat”

Great product. Really improves ride while towing

Review from a similar Ride Control in Vehicle Suspension


I installed these on my 2021 Tacoma. They lasted less than one month. In addition to the horrid ride at a very low pressure, they no longer held air once I really needed the lift. I found that both bags were torn. There was not enough room between the frame and top of the leaf springs to keep them from getting smashed when hitting bumps. Bummer!

If you reach out to air lift they will help you out with any warranty issues you have.

Review from a similar Ride Control in Vehicle Suspension


I installed the airlift support this afternoon. I had removed Timbren
Shocks which are just hard rubber shocks that mount to the factory spring
bumper support. The airlift required drilling out the rivets and removing
this OEM support.

Here are pictures of the left and right units installed on my truck. I
already have an Air Lift pump and rear bags on the rear of my truck.

When I put my plow on then I will see how well these perform and any sag or
how much lift. I have a 7"-6" Western Pro Plow for my 1987 GMC V-2500 4x4.

As a note, I was missing hardware from that hardware package. I had to look
through my own stock in order to complete the install. If it is at all
possible, I would be most appreciative if you could get AirLift to provide a
hardware package that was complete.

I also install the mirrors on my GMC. I have my 102" wide 20 foot cargo
trailer connected to my truck and will be using that in a few days. I am
hoping they will give me a better rear vision of the sides of my trailer.
When I get it on the road, I will have a better idea on what to comment.
When I do, I will send pictures. I don't plan on keeping them on the truck
all the time, just when I used the cargo trailer.


Comments
I found that the front lift suspension items worked well for plowing this past winter. I had no sag in the front as all the weight went right to the axel. My only planned upgrade is a dual gauge system so that I can pump or reduce the air separately from the dash of the truck as to utilize the under hood pump. At present I just add air separately to each line on the front. A well made product from Air-Lift.

Review from a similar Ride Control in Vehicle Suspension


The AirLift system we talked about a couple weeks ago was sent to my daughter, Kristi's house. I installed it yesterday. I'm on the road, which isn't the best place to do the installation. My father in law didn't have any socket wrenches so I started with a couple 9/16 open end wrenches. These don't work for everything. I went to the local hardware store and bought what I needed. The driver side went on much easier. The hardest bolt was the top one requiring the socket wrench to hold the nut inside the frame. I had to feel for the nut since it was hidden next to an existing frame bolt. I was able to simply jack the back of the truck up at the hitch to gain clearance. I didn't have to remove the wheels. The nylon lock nut was fun to tighten. AirLift should have supplied a simple wrench for this. I found a vice grip needle nose plier worked well enough.

Here are three photos. First is passenger side, second tries to show where top nut goes, third is drivers side. I have then filled to 28psi and will check them this morning.

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.

Review from a similar Ride Control in Vehicle Suspension


The package arrived, torn open. It was also obvious the box had been previously opened and then re-taped closed improperly. The contents of the box were loose with no internal packing with the items inside crashing into each other. Gratefully the contents so far appear undamaged. The damage to the box could be the responsibility of USPS but the fact that the box was not packed correct is on the vendor. I cannot recommend this company based on the way they shipped the package.

Review from a similar Ride Control in Vehicle Suspension


Install was simple. Took me 2 1/2 hours by myself, plus my buddy 1 hour to weld on a nice bracket for the air valves on the back bumper (see pics). Instructions were confusing and nomenclature did not match parts, but I eventually got it figured out. There are also two spots in the instructions that tell you not to tighten certain nuts down so that you can adjust the bags later, but it never tells you when or how to tighten them later.

I recommend you jack up the rear axle and remove the rear tires so you have plenty of room to move around and install this.

System looks really nice on the pickup, and you can hardly tell there's anything on there unless you are looking closely. Even while almost empty, the bags push the rear of the pickup up a little bit which looks cool. And it seems to ride smoother now too. I have not tried it with pulling cargo or a trailer yet, and will update this review if I don't notice anything good.

Easy install on my 2018 Tacoma. I have a snug top shell, and haul a small boat and a trailer. These really helped level out the rear when pulling. No more bottoming out the leaf springs. I am running about 20 psi unloaded and it has smoothed out the ride. Happy with the purchase.

Review from a similar Ride Control in Vehicle Suspension


I'm very pleased with these airbags. Saved $100 versus the competition. The kit is specific to the model and year of my truck and fit perfectly. I'm 66, handy with a wrench, but not a mechanic. I completed the installation by myself in a couple of hours without a lift. The instructions are clear but I found it helpful to also watch the u-tube video as I went through the steps. (Better pictures) My F-150 has plenty of power but soft suspension which makes for a comfortable ride when empty but sat down low with a heavy trailer. I can pump up the airbags and level out the load. I made several trips with a 20' deckover trailer carrying 10,000 pounds of produce and had no problems. I'm wishing I had also purchased and installed the built-in air compressor. I will probably add it later. I air up at the farm before adding a load and I carry a twenty dollar 12 volt compressor in the tool box just in case I have an unexpected load. This doesn't add to the hauling capacity of my truck but it keeps my headlights on the road and not in the trees.

Airbags are still working great! 2015 F150.

leaked and make a clicking sound every time it compressed. Remove it after a week.


Comments
If you are getting clicking noises they will need to inspect the install for loose parts. As for the leaking bag, we would recommend that you replace the bag. I see this item has a lifetime warranty, and have sent your information over to our customer service department for them to get this corrected for you.

Review from a similar Ride Control in Vehicle Suspension


I found needs to be extremely helpful. I have a 1997 Econoline 150 Ford van. It was a conversion van so lots of extra weight. The back leaf springs were obviously struggling as it rode low without a trailer or any significant load. After installing the air springs, and charging them 1/3 of capacity Or 35 PSI, the ride drastically improved. Shortly after installing them I pulled a 24 foot trailer with a medium load on it, and it drastically improved the ride compared to pulling a trailer previously. Highly recommended and cheaper than new high-quality leaf springs.

Review from a similar Ride Control in Vehicle Suspension


I purchased and installed this kit on my 2008 Hummer H3 Alpha to assist the rear springs for towing my heavy jet ski trailer, and it preformed flawlessly. Straightforward install, great quality product, and the bags are holding up really well to the abuse I've put them through. I definitely recommend this kit to anyone considering purchasing it for their rig.

Review from a similar Ride Control in Vehicle Suspension


Product arrived in just a couple of days and was very easy to install. Only took an hour. When I filled the system with air I found a leak on the bag itself. Called Rebecca at etrailer and she gave me the number to air lift and she would check with me in a couple of days. I called airlift and had a new bag in two days. Rebecca did email me and ask if everything was ok. Hooked the camper up and tried it out and man did it work great. This was a great buying experience and will soon purchase the on board air compressor from etrailer

High quality product. I have these on a 1985 Toyota 4x4 pickup with a 1000lb camper on it full time. Only issue was that I had to fabricate a spacer to clear the parking brake cable but that wasn't a big deal. Zero issues after 1 year and 10,000 miles. Highly recommend these
