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.

Great service

2003 Jeep Wrangler

So far so good. My 03 Jeep Wrangler TJ was sagging in the rear. Now it is level. Needed this for the extra load carrying capacity when using a motorcycle carrier to carry my Suzuki VanVan on the back of the Jeep. This nicely raised the hitch by 6 inches so I don't have to worry about dragging the carrier when encountering a dip. Shipping was prompt and fast. Could not be more pleased with the customer service from etrailer.

Air lift is still working great. Exactly what I needed to balance the load when I carry my motorcycle on the carrier behind my wrangler.

They are an easy install. Works great. I would recommend. I pull a 20 foot RV travel trailer with a 2005 Jeep grand Cherokee. The air lifts help stabilize the ride.

They are working out just fine. No problems with the air lift.

Great solution to keep rear end of 98 Jeep Wrangler from sagging due to tongue weight of boat trailer. Installed them myself following directions provided. Recommend them to anyone needing additional support for vehicle with coil springs.

The air bags are excellent, they lift my vehicle perfectly.

Will this air lift fit my 1998 Jeep Sahara edition rear end springs?

Patrick B.

8/28/2013

Yes indeed, the AL60811 kit will fit on the rear of your 1998 Wrangler Sahara. If you will need to adjust the bags frequently a compressor kit may be advantageous. If you off-road with your Jeep, a system with a reserve tank may come in handy for other applications. Check out AL25592 or AL25572.

al60811 as I under stand you install air bags in coil spring what do you do with the rubber bump stop existing stock inside the spring. do you permanently remove the bump stop ?

Patrick B.

9/3/2013

On the Chrysler vehicles, the stop just pulls out of the cup and is not reinstalled. There is not need for a bump stop once the airbags are in place. They will fulfill that role as well as suplememnt the coil springs.

Thank goodness the computer never have ink to dry. I just barely placed my order and it was in my hands. Great service would be an understatement.

They work great. I’ve used them to align my boat, a utility trailer and the wheelchair carrier for my wife. Has improved the ride and gas mileage by making the combinations more aero Dynamic. I would purchase again and recommend them to others

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.

Reviewing the Air Lift 1000 kit 60860 for Kia/Hyundai SUV
Installed in a 2017 KIA Sorento LX. Like many other reviews claim, this was not easy to install although the factory video makes it look so, so simple. I followed the instructions for the first bag, it took me 2 and ½ hours to get it inside the spring coil. I used an exacto knife for cutting the hole, which worked very well. Not having a spoon type tire iron, I eventually settled on the handle of a large crescent wrench. After inserting the bag ½ way in, using the wrench to push on the part already in the spring brought the rest of the bag further in. Eventually I finally got the first bag inserted although it was twisted. Inflating the bag straightened it out. Starting on the second bag, I noticed it was much more pliable. It had been sitting in the Florida sun for the past 2 ½ hours. I folded it down as instructed, then folded it in ½ lengthwise and used zip ties to secure it. After sitting in the hot sun for another hour while I hydrated, it only took me 10 minutes to get the 2nd bag inserted and needed no other tools to assist. Carefully snipped the zip ties off and it popped into place. Running the air lines was simple enough. The hose clamps are very fragile, be patient, be careful or they will break.
Overall I am quite pleased with the performance of the bags. They make a big difference in how the KIA rides when towing. They hold pressure and are easy to inflate & deflate. I use a bicycle tire pump as I have no need to modify the pressure in route and didn’t see the need to spend the money on a remote control inflation system.

Installed this kit on our 08' sienna awd the day before a road trip. Install went fairly smooth. It did take a couple of attempts to get the air bags stuffed into the coil springs. Routed both airlines individually and mounted on lower bumper black trim just above the hitch. Held air at 35psi overnight, deflated to 25psi with cargo and hit the road. All seems well and the van handles better loaded.
Have to echo other positive reviews of this product. Makes the sienna even more versatile, and it is both affordable and a moderate diy project for shadetrees like me



by:

its been a year of using the lift kit on the Jeep Wrangler Rubi (4door). no issues. did replace the clips with tighter fitting clips.

not much else to say. works as advertised.



by:

Getting the tubing completely over the plastic barbed tee fittings is difficult at best without damaging the fittings. The bags will not hold pressure for more than a day. The metal barded fittings are much easier to use & get the tube seated properly. Recommend NOT using the plastic tee fittings.
Getting the bags inside the springs is a test of patience, flexibility, hand & arm strength within a confined area. This is not a quick installation AND make sure you're in the shade because you'll be sweating enough without the help of the sun.
Once everything was installed & inflated, the ride without the trailer was noticeably better & with the trailer, the bag end sag was completely eliminated. FYI, the ride of the KIA without the air bags & trailer is already very nice.



by:

These air bags are very difficult to get into the coil spring. You must disconnect the shock absorbers and disconnect the brake line bracket. Also lubricant of some sort was most helpful. Connect the air lines while coil springs are fully extended. Otherwise you'll never get them in. Once they're inside some compressed air is helpful to blow up the bag. Once installed work quite well.



by:

Product does exactly what it’s supposed to do. Install was fairly easy. Hardest part was getting the bags in the springs but it wasn’t terribly difficult. I tow a 3000 pound pop up camper with my jeep wrangler JL unlimited and it levels out my load no problem



by:

This was the perfect upgrade for my Honda Odyssey. Rides great towing or not. Holds pressure really well. Instructions where simple and thorough. I'm not a mechanic, but do a lot of my own maintenance and tinkering. This was one of my most satisfying projects. P.S. might need some penetrating oil to get the old parts off if they've been on a while...



by:

Put these on 07 tahoe. I pull a camper and put 400lbs of tools in back of tahoe. With just the tools I noticed it help put more weight on front wheels. I have not pulled camper yet but with just the minimum 5lbs of pressure it helped with the tools.
It took me about 4 hrs to install by myself on the ground. The hardest part was getting it pushed into the coil springs. I ended up using a ratchet strap to help push it in. It was fun trying to get the hose connected afterward, could not see, had to feel and take a picture to make sure it was fully seated.



by:

Installation was super quick and easy in my home garage. The hardest part was finding a way to jack the truck high enough to hang the rear axle. My test was 25 bags of mulch. The before installation picture shows the rear squat. The after picture is of the exact same load with 30psi in the air bags. Super happy with the results. The ride is much better with a load in the back. Can't wait to hook up my camper to see how much better the ride is on a long trip.



by:

Pretty cool product, and it works! The instructions are lacking, but some videos and research got me through it. I have a 1st generation Toyota Sequoia that I have made into a camping rig with a water tank. It caused the back to ride heavy and made highway corners a bit scary with body roll. I first added Sumo Bump stops that helped. But these actually made it ride normal when fully loaded with bikes, water, and camping gear. Worth the money. Install is not bad, but the instructions are. Jack your rig from the frame so suspension is hanging free. Take the tire off. Undo the single bolt bracket for the brake line in front of rear tire. Remove the bottom bolt from the shock. Remove the bump stop (not required but easy to do and gives you more room. Use a small hydraulics jack to set on top of rear axle and jack against the frame pushing the rear axle down. The springs are easily removed. Take the rubber numb stop
Inside the spring out and cut it at the top notch or indent. Remove burrs from the inside of the spring where the airlift will sit. This is not required but a smooth surface for the rubber is good. The instructions show the airline pointing down toward axle. This is wrong. Route the airline through the top. No need for drilling as the instructions indicate or using the cutout. The rest is putting it back together and it’s easy. I put my air valves behind the mud flaps.



by:

My vehicle is a 2002 Chevy Tahoe. Installation of the Air Helper Springs was fairly simple. Getting them inside the factory springs is a bit of a bitch, but doable. The ride while pulling my travel trailer was bouncy at 15psi. Not what I was going for. Unloaded, I kept 5psi in the helper springs and it was fine.
I developed a clunking in the rear end about 8 months after installation. I discovered that the lower bolts on my shocks were loose. I'm assuming that the decreased load on the shocks allowed play in the frame mount and therefore allowed the bolt to loosen. Easy fix, but something to be aware of. Overall, the air helpers work, but next purchase I'll be going for a system with its own air compressor.

  • Air Lift Suspension Enhancement Recommendation for a 2006 Jeep Wrangler
    Since a body lift like what you have on your vehicle does not change the distance between the axle and frame you would not need a spacer kit to install a suspension enhancement kit on your 2006 Jeep Wrangler. The Air Lift kit part # AL60811 that you referenced would fit and work well for you. I attached an install video for you to check out as well.

    The Air Lift 1000 Air Helper Springs for Coil Springs # AL60811 are designed to fit the stock spacing of the coil spring on your 2002 Jeep Wrangler.
