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.

2002 Odyssey. Old suspension. Solution? Replace all rear suspension. At that time, install the springs. Piece of cake. Follow drilling instructions accurately. FOR 3/4" HOLE, USE A 3/4" BIMETAL HOLE SAW FROM HARDWARE STORE. This ended up being the solution to drilling a 3/4 in hole. A no-brainer. Get this product. With new suspension, from center of hub to bottom of quarter panel, aprox 215 mm height. Air should be added or removed to maintain this height for proper traction and tire wear. Don't jack up the car with air. Let the car ride at the height it was designed and aligned to.

etrailer is a great outfit. Ordering online was easy and fast. George J upgraded the shipping to express for free! I like that. My order was shipped out almost immediately and arrived way earlier than I was expecting. You guys are great! I'll write more after I install the air springs on my trusty old Odyssey.

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.

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!

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.

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.

Review from a similar AirLift 1000 in Vehicle Suspension


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.




by:

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.

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.

Review from a similar AirLift 1000 in Vehicle Suspension


This was easy to install and highly effective. I have a hitch mounted bike rack and when my Sienna is loaded up for a weekend of camping and biking, it used to ride low in the back. It also would scrape on some rougher dirt roads/mild 4wd roads. These air bags helped with that as well. I highly recommend these for people doing similar things.


Comments
Still totally agree with my initial assessment of these air bags. Id definitely recommend them!

Review from a similar AirLift 1000 in Vehicle Suspension


I installed this on my 2016 Ford flex. It prevented the car from sagging while towing a trailer. So it did the job but there is absolutely no way this could have been installed the way it was advertised. The only way to install it was to free the springs from the vehicle and slide it from the bottom of the springs. Also, one of valves was manufactured poorly (it didn't have the hole to push the air into). Because of that, I wasn't able to pump the air helpers independently. My workaround was to install the "T" so both air helpers are pumped via one valve.
In other words, it does the job, but the installation was much more difficult than advertised and one of the valves wasn't usable.


Comments
It sounds like one of the air bags is defective. Not to worry, this product has a 60 day worry free guarantee. We will contact you via email.

Review from a similar AirLift 1000 in Vehicle Suspension


We tried these and the rear suspension improves if we are carrying a bike rack, however after driving 4 hours or so the bags need to be reinflated. Not sure if this is typical or not. If there is a slow air leak I'm not sure how to easily locate it. Unfortunately, solid rubber shocks are not available for my vehicle.


Comments
One of the best ways to tell if you have a leak is to use soapy water and wipe it on the bags as soon as you fill it. If you see bubbles forming, it means that you most likely have a leak. It is more common for leaking to occur around the air valve, so I recommend keeping an eye around that area. This product does have a lifetime warranty available for bags and brackets, so you may be qualified to receive a new bag. I do see that Air Lift prefers to handle all of their own warranties, I highly recommend you contact Air Lift for a replacement under their warranty.

Review from a similar AirLift 1000 in Vehicle Suspension


I bought these to replace the blown bladders in my 2006 Winnebago Siteseer Worsehorse chassis. I'm a handy guy but was a little nervous about cutting out the old bladders and installing the Air Lift 1000 units. I found the customer comments very helpful especially the comment on using a heat gun to pull the old bladders out. The first one took me a couple of hours to figure out, the second one took me less than an hour to deinstall old and install new.

I REALLY appreciate the hose extensions for the valves. I installed them up in the engine compartment where I can easily access them for checking and topping off the air. For the units I replaced, I had to crawl up under the rig to check and fill--no more of that nasty, dirty crawl for this senior citizen.

Filled to 60 PSI, the first drive was noticeably different, the handling feels much stiffer than it had. We're launching out on a 3,600-mile road trip in the next couple of weeks, I'm looking forward to seeing how they handle on the open road.

My advice to folks-- the installation seems daunting, but the results are well worth the challenge. I encourage you to try this product.

After a year still very satisfied with these air lifts. Ive recommended them time and again to my fellow RVers

Review from a similar AirLift 1000 in Vehicle Suspension


Great kit overall. Do heed the install instructions, and not online forums for the 5th gen 4Runner. The instructions are correct, and forums are not.

Only think I did not like about the kit are the barbed fittings, and the flimsy plastic tee that’s included. The barbed fitting are extremely difficult to have the air line engaged into in a confined space under the vehicle. A push to connect fitting, or some other type of compression fitting would have been easier.

Review from a similar AirLift 1000 in Vehicle Suspension


The issue with the Bronco sport is that there are three very different suspension. I have the Big Bend version and after ruining an airbag we discover the kit is for the larger badlands coils and will not fit the base or Big Bend or the outer banks versions. It really is to bad manufacturers don’t do their homework. Great design but only fits one version of the Bronco Sport only the Badlands.


Comments
I have gotten in touch with the manufacturer and they have suggested that, since the Bronco has multiple different styles for the Sport, it is certainly possible that ford made some changes since they launched the Bronco. I have sent your information over to our customer service department for them get this situation resolved. They should be getting in touch with you soon.

Review from a similar AirLift 1000 in Vehicle Suspension


The fork lift operator couldn't reach far enough to center them over my axle, but it didn't matter, because I installed air lift air springs and the Timbren bump stop spring enhancements. I can't believe how well they performed together. It was only a short trip with this load, and I'd never haul this heavy of a payload in a 1500 unless it was a short trip, but it wouldn't have been an option without these enhancements. The fork lift driver was even impressed. He asked me what I was using. These products kick serious ass! AMAZING!

Review from a similar AirLift 1000 in Vehicle Suspension


These were great for helping support a little extra weight in my vehicle. The most difficult part is getting the bag in the springs but I watched several install videos and was able to muscle it in in just a few minutes. The package contains everything you need for a fast and easy install. So far no leaks and no complaints, I’m very happy.

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.

Review from a similar AirLift 1000 in Vehicle Suspension


There are 6 in our family and we like to play on our vacations. Which means lots of people and stuff in and on our mini-van, and a bike rack with 5 bikes on the back (and one bike inside). Our old Toyota Sienna clearly sagged under the burden, so when we got a 2011 Sienna which has a lower bumper to begin with, I was nervous about how it would handle everything, and particularly with the bike rack out back if it might even scrape the ground at times (bottom of hills, speed bumps...). I purchased these to help the suspension. They installed relatively easily, and we took our first trip of about 450 miles to Cape Cod and all went well. We had minimal if any noticeable drop in the back of the van, even fully loaded with all six of us, a full rooftop carrier, 5 bikes on the back, and extra seating inside (van sits 8) folded down and that available space also packed.

We have only had these for a few weeks and I am a bit of a perfectionist, so these may very well deserve an excellent mark. The only thing that is keeping me from that is that I have only had them for a little while, so if they keep performing as they have so far, I would grade them as excellent.


Comments
One year in and they are working very well. I did not test them terribly much this past year, but I have to say what we have done has all gone very well. I am very happy with this purchase and have no complaints.

I originally bought the Air Lift 1000 to prevent my 2011 Pathfinder from sagging when I pull my 4,500lbs boat. So far so good, the sag is gone. Other benefits are a firmer ride and less roll on the turns. If I posted the pics correctly you can see I ran each bag independently and I was able to mount each Schrader Valve on my 7 pin wire harness. This is a very easy DIY project. I suggest taking off the wheels and placing the bags in the springs from outside the vehicle rather then from underneath.

Troy.. did you wire up your 7 pin connector yourself? Looking at doing my 2011 with the Nissan harness at the hitch end and the controller end.Thanks.. Ken

I did the 7 pin myself. It was just plug and play. Not hard at all. Im not 100 sure if all 7 pins work because my trailer only requires 5 pins amd so far it has worked flawlessly. Hope this helps.

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-

  • Leaking Air Helper Spring System on 2004 Honda Pilot
    Actually, the Air Lift # AL60740 can be used on 2WD or 4WD vehicles, I've confirmed this with my Tech Support contact at Air Lift. Usually, a leak occurs at points where the air line was cut to length. It's important that these cuts be perfectly square, so using a tubing cutter like # AL10530 to get nice clean cuts is very important. The easiest way to find the leak is to add air to the system, then take some liquid dishwashing soap and dilute it with a small amount of water. Use a small...

    I can certainly walk you through the instructions for installing the Air Lift AirLift 1000 Air Helper Springs for Coil Springs part # AL60740 on the rear of your 2004 Honda Odyssey, however, we have not had a chance to install these springs on a Honda Odyssey yet.

  • Is There Drilling Required to Install Air Lift Suspension Enhancement in a 2003 Honda Odyssey
    The video you referenced is actually a different air bag kit being installed on a newer Odyssey than your 2003. That is why the install information is different. In the video the Air Lift kit being installed is part # AL60815 and for your 2003 the recommended kit is part # AL60740. I checked the install instructions and the only drilling that could be required would be for drilling a location for installing the inflation valve.

  • Can Air Lift Air Bags and Coil SumoSprings be Used Together on a 2004 Honda Odyssey
    For your 2004 Honda Odyssey you would not be able to use both Air Lift air bags # AL60740 and the SumoSprings # CSS-1145R. The air bags fit inside the coil springs on the bag so there would not be room to also have the SumoSprings. Even if they did fit together using both would create a very stiff ride and the 1,000 pound capacity and adjustability of the air bags is more than enough to prevent sag and cushion the ride without the need of additional products.

    For a hitch with a high enough tongue weight capacity you will need the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 75270. Although the # e98862 does have a max tongue weight of 500 lbs with weight distribution, this would require a weight distribution hitch and a trailer to install it on. The # 75270 has a maximum tongue weight of 675 lbs with or without weight distribution so it will be able to handle the bike rack and bikes without an issue.

    One option is air bags like the AirLift 1000 Air Helper Springs # AL60740. This kit will let you adjust air pressure in the springs to even the load that is in your 2003 Honda Odyssey. If you prefer to control the pressue from inside your van you can also add a compressor system. The AirLift Load Controller II # AL25592 will allow you to monitor and control the air pressure. For even more control the # AL25812 system is a dual path system so you will be able to control the bags separately...
