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.

Video Transcript for Air Lift AirLift 1000 Air Helper Springs Installation - 2010 Honda Odyssey

Speaker 1: Today on our 2010 Honda Odyssey, we'll be having a look at and showing you how to install the Air Lift 1000 air helper springs, part number AL60815. Here's what our air bags look like installed. Now, what's great about these air bags compared to other solutions on the market is these will give us a load leveling capacity of up to 1,000 pounds and they have the adjustability that we're looking for. So, if we only have a little bit of weight, we can add just a little bit of air to maintain our factory ride height, or if we have a lot of weight, we can jack up the air pressure a little bit to also maintain the factory ride height.These bags support air pressure between five and 35 PSI giving us the adjustment range that we're looking for to maintain the ride height, give us the comfort and the stability that we're looking for. Now, these air bags aren't going to give us an additional 1,000 pounds of load capacity. They are going to work in conjunction with our vehicle's factory suspension where we have up to 1,000 pounds of weight in the vehicle or a heavy trailer with a high tongue weight.Now, we can easily adjust the air pressure just by opening up our gas door here, removing the cap over our shrader valve and we can adjust it just like we can our tire air pressure, uses the same style fitting.

Here we are at our Odyssey, we're going to get a few measurements to see what the vehicle is like with the factory suspension with no additional weight in the vehicle or without having a trailer hooked up. These will be our factory ride height measurements. Measuring from the center of our rear wheel up to the top of our fender we're looking at about 29 inches. Do the same on the front and we're looking at about the same measurement in the front, about 29 inches.Okay, now we've added some weight to the back of our Odyssey to show carrying a heavy amount of cargo or towing a trailer. Now we'll double check our measurements and see where we're at.

As you can see, we have dropped quite a bit. We're now down to 27 inches in the back. We're about to 30 and a quarter inches in the front. Now, this is going to effect us in multiple ways. By having the back of the vehicle go down and the front come up, number one thing that's changing is the weight transfer to the front.

Meaning we have less weight on our front tires and our front brakes is what does most of our vehicle's braking. Without having the weight up front, they're not as effective.Also, we're going to have increased tire wear in the front and decreased handling ability. We're going to have more tire wear on the outside edge of our tires because when the front end raises, our vehicle gets positive camber where the wheels go like this, causing more wear on the outside edge and less contact patch towards the middle on the inside. Our headlight angle is also going to change. Versus our headlights being point down towards the road, they're now pointing up towards the sky and can actually blind oncoming drivers.Okay, now that we have our air bags installed, we have the same amount weight placed on the back of it again.

Now we're going to compare our measurements and see if we brought it back to our factory ride height or not. We're about 28 inches in the rear. Now we're significantly closer to factory ride height than where we we're before. We'll double check the front now.The front we're about 30 inches. It's come back down a little bit to bring it closer to factory ride height. With the front of our vehicle coming back down and the back coming up, we've now transferred the weight back towards the front, giving us our increased steering, handling and stability and braking ability that we're looking for. We're also going to have better tire wear, better headlight angle and our vehicle is going to drive more like stock.Now, let's take our air bags out on our test course. On the left side of the screen, you'll notice the vehicle without the air bags installed and on the right side of the screen with the air bags installed. The first part of our test course, we'll be doing some evasive maneuvering, doing some quick turns side to side. You'll notice how unstable and unsettled the suspension is without the air bags installed and with them installed you'll notice how much more settled and more control that we have over the vehicle. There is a significant amount less body roll than what we had without them.In the next part of our test course we'll be going over some bumps and you'll notice without the air bags installed, how much suspension travel we don't have. The suspension can't do its job properly because it's sagging down and doesn't have the amount of travel that it needs in order to help go over the bumps. With the air bags installed, you can see how much less jouncing and jarring there is going on because the suspension is able to do its job properly with having the weight being supported by the air bags. This will give us much more handing and breaking ability with the air bags installed giving us the safety that we need when we're towing a load or have a lot of weight in the back of our vehicle.For video purposes, we've already gone ahead and removed our rear tires. To begin the actual install, we'll need to support our rear lower control arm. Since we're on a two post lift, I will use a pole jack to support our rear lower control arm. If you're doing this on the ground and you have your vehicle on jack stands, you can just use your floor jack. It will work the same way. We now need to remove the 17 millimeter bolt that connects our control arm to our spindle.Now before we remove our spring, we're going to make a mark on our spring and a corresponding mark on our control arm so we can help index it to its original position when we're reinstalling. Now we can safely lower our lower control arm slowly in order to relieve the tension on the spring. We can grab our spring, pull down on the control arm, and pull the spring out. Make sure we keep this isolator on the spring and this goes towards the top, we need to remember that. The bottom one, in some applications, you may find yours broken from road debris but we'll still keep it and put it back in place.Now we need to remove our factory bump stop. There's a 14 millimeter bolt going up through the middle of it. Having a deep well socket with about a three inch extension makes it really easy to remove. Now on the underside of our lower control arm in this circular area, we'll take our template that we cut out from the instructions, place it inside, making sure that our location hole is closest to the center of our vehicle and we'll use this as a guide to drill a pilot hole. And we have it marked now so we can take our template down and continue drilling through.Now we enlarge our hole to the size indicated in the instructions. For that, I'm going to use a step bit. Now we can take our spring, this being the bottom section of it, since it doesn't have the thick isolator, which is at the top. We'll take our air bag, insert it so that our fitting faces down. Now we can reinstall our spring. With our spring now inside of our control arm, we'll make sure our marks are as close together as possible to ensure proper alignment and we can start to raise our lower control arm back into position.With our control arm hole now lining up with the hole in our spindle, we can reinstall our bolt. Now before we impact our bolt down into position, we want to make sure we turn it a few times by hand to make sure it starts easily and won't cross thread. With our control arm now secured to our spindle, we can now safely remove our jack that was supporting the weight.All right, now that we have our driver's side air bag assembly in place, we'll do the same for the passenger side. We are looking at our passenger side air bag assembly. You can see where our air line fitting comes through the hole that we drilled. Take one end of our tubing and we'll slide it onto our fitting. Now we'll take one of our clamps, squeeze it with a pair of needle nose pliers and we'll work it onto our air line and then we'll work it all the way down the air line towards our fitting. We'll now slide it all the way up until it clamps the hose to the fitting.Now, we'll take our heat shield, slide it on to our airline tubing and we'll just work it down close to our passenger side by the exhaust. We'll just slide it in this general area for right now. We can adjust it as necessary. Now we're going to route our air line tubing over towards our driver's side. We'll show you what it looks like once we're done.So, our air line tubing, we left a little slack in it. Our suspension is at full droop right now so we don't need to worry about it touching right here. Once we have weight on our suspension, it's going to go up and even create more slack. We routed it up, leaving our heat shielding right in this position because this is the closest point of contact to our exhaust, goes over our sub-frame and we have it zip tied to a wire for our ABS sensor on top of it, zip tied to this wiring harness here for a few sensors, goes over our sub-frame and then it comes out next to where our fuel filler neck is. Now we'll cut off our excess air line tubing. We'll have it right here, right by our rear sub-frame mount. I placed a clamp on the end of it, slide it back a bit, take our T fitting, push it on. Once we have our tubing on our fitting enough, we'll slide the clamp on to the end to secure it to the fitting. We'll place a clamp about an inch down on our segment of air line tubing that we have left over and we'll push this on to our driver side air bag fitting.With that all the way up now, we'll secure the clamp. Okay, our air line for the driver's side, re-routed up over our sub-frame and secured to the same wiring harness as we did for the one on the passenger side and we dropped it down next to where our fitting is. Measure off how much we're going to need, cut off the excess, stick a clamp on it, secure it to our T fitting. Now we'll secure the clamp. Now, we'll take our clamp and one end of our leftover air line, put the clamp on, connect it to the other end of our fitting.With it fully on, we'll move our clamp back up and secure it. Now inside our driver's side wheel well, we have this plastic panel here which covers up our filler neck area. We have three ten millimeter bolts that we need to remove. And then we'll have four plastic push pin fasteners like this one that we need to remove. Use a trim panel tool to get behind the panel, pull it out. Then we can pull the panel down and out of the way. Okay, with our gas door open, we're going to drill a pilot hole right in this area here so we can mount our inflation value.Here with our pilot hole made, we'll now enlarge it to the size indicated in the instructions. Now we'll take our inflation valve, thread on one of the nuts, place on a star washer, insert it through the hole, place on the rubber washer, followed by the flat washer and we'll thread on a nut. Now, we'll tighten down our fitting. We'll use a wrench on the backside. Use a 13 millimeter or a half inch and we'll use a socket on the front side. We routed our air line tubing up from our fitting, behind our filler neck bracket here and then zip tied to this filler neck bracket there. We will now measure off how much of our hose we will need, cut off the excess, take our final clamp, put it on our tubing and we'll push our tubing on to our fitting. And then secure it with the clamp.Now we'll take our two clamps, wrap them around the exhaust near our passenger side air bag, this is the only difference on our passenger side. Let's get these started. This is our heat shield. This will protect our passenger side air bag from the heat from our tailpipe assembly. We need to put this in a location that is where the air bag is closest to the exhaust. That'll be right about in this area here. What we'll do, we'll bend these tabs down and then out like that and we'll clamp it with our hose clamps to the exhaust. We bent it as necessary to clear our lower control arm for suspension travel and to direct as much heat as possible away from our air bag.Now we can cut off our excess hose clamps so they don't rattle against the heat shields. Now we will inflate our air bags to 35 PSI and check for any leaks. The way we check for leaks is we'll spray it with some soapy water at any of our connection points to see if we see any bubbles. If we see small bubbles, that's okay. If we see large bubbles that means we have a leak. We'll even check our shrader valve to make sure that's not leaking. Sometimes a core can be lose inside and you'll have to tighten it.Okay, with no leaks found, it's now safe for us to reinstall our panel back into it's proper position. With our tires reinstalled, we're ready to hit the road. That completes our look at and showing you how to install the Air Lift 1000 air helper springs, part number AL60815 on our 2010 Honda Odyssey.

No problem with bags. We did hear noise when bags rub on springs. I lubricate the bags with silicone twice now and noise goes away. Web site indicated that everything we ordered was appropriate for our Honda Odyssey, BUT apparently the air bags were not. The carton the bags came in did not list what vehicles the bags were compatible with, so we assumed they were correct. They were not. When I contacted the company I told them we were sending them back and expected an even exchange. It took several challenges before they helped us with credit for our return. They eventually did thanks to a logical trusting lady. 395937

My reason for purchasing this product was to keep rear suspension level when towing, and it has done exactly that. I tow a small open motorcycle trailer...total weight of trailer with motorcycle is less than 900 lbs. Of course, the van itself has another 100 to 200 extra lbs. So not too heavy, but without the Air Lift 1000, rear suspension would drop 3-4 inches. Now it barely drops at all. This also help with loading and unloading the bike out the back of trailer since it keeps the rear of the trailer lower as well. The van handles as if I wasn't towing. Secondary benefit...headlights stay level and you aren't blinding oncoming traffic. Definitely recommend, and would purchase again. Excellent product. 371482

The install was tricky. Not because of how the product is made but the way I wanted to get these in the spring without taking everything apart. Ive been hauling my boat with these in for a year now and the difference is incredible. The sag on the rear is barely noticeable. Theyre still holding air.

I have been very happy with the performance of these air lifts. I have them set up on a 2011 Honda Odyssey - which is notorious for sagging quite low in the back end with moderate to heavy loads or with a loaded bike rack or towing a trailer. I would not say that the process was very difficult to assemble - I just took my time and was very careful. The instructions - both written and through on-line videos were pretty good. There are two holes that need to be drilled (one each side) that are 3/4 inch in diameter. I did not have the correct tool for this and the method that I used to create these holes was far more difficult and time consuming than I had anticipated. In the end, I should have just bought the correct drilling tool. During use, you can hear the suspension "squeak" a little when a large pump is hit or doing something that compresses the suspension - but it's not a big deal or annoying to me. Overall - so far so good. 547780

Incredibly easy to install on my 2012 Honda odyssey, especially if you follow the provided video. Tested how my camper pulled before installing the air ride and after and the ride is so much another smoother. The van drives me comfortably even when not towing. Would give 5 stars but the little clamps provided are extremely flimsy and bent out of shape as soon as I pinched them open, I even used hose clamp pliers. Only recommendation I have is better hose clamps and use some kind of conduit or paint on the air line that is provided, there are some sharp edges under the van that will quickly run through that line. 444067

Product was easy to install on my 2016 odyssey, I ran the lines to two valves and plumbed them to mount onto the side plate of the new trailer hitch I installed for a really clean and accessible install. Be prepared with a good drill, impact gun and high quality drill bits but the online installation videos make this install a breeze. I didnt even look at the instructions provided with the kit thanks to the videos from etrailer. 274824

Hard to install, don't be fooled. I could have done it I figured but [for lack of time] I delivered it to my auto shop for the work. This is a high quality shop with good mechanics I trust. It took them 5 hrs to include replacing tie rod bolts on a Honda Pilot that were rusted on; had to be released. They said whole axle had to be lowered down to install these bags. The upside is these units are high quality (so far) and seem to work well. In the Honda Pilot, towing a 1575 Lance trailer, they are totally needed as the back end settles all the way down with tongue weight. I'd actually like Gen 2 of these bags to be taller too. Your SUV probably will too and if you're reading this you're on the right track to solve this problem. I'd buy these again but factor in time/expense for the install. 313648

I just arrived on my 938 mile first trip today with the new air bags. I had myself my wife 2 kids and the back loaded even had to remove 3rd row seats 2nd row middle seat was in. Total weight in the van was 1196LBS passengers and cargo. Had a hitch carrier total weight with carrier 226LBS. Total weight of 1422LBS. Over the 1340LBS max load but I removed the rear seats which weighted in at 128 LBS so I was at 1294LBS total. 46LBS under max weight. So I tested these things first trip. Van sat 1- 3/4"lower than normal ride height at 35 psi. Rear side skirt was 1" lower than the front with everything and everyone loaded. Had a friend measure. The van drove great the van took bumps on the interstate and didn't bounce all over. It made the rear stable and very little lean. Airbags made it a night and day difference in a stable ride. Besides having to remember the van doesnt hace acceleration you have to remember not to jerk the wheel cause though it helps keep the rear more planted it also gives the feel as there is no weight in the rear so sudden changes can make the rear shimmy. Turns with that weight feel solid but take more direction of the steering wheel to compensate. Overall this product is the best $ I have spent on this van for road trips. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND if you road trip heavyweight. Air bags were set at 35psi dropped to 30.5psi by the end of the trip directions said this would happen as they were installed 2 days before the trip and had 25 miles on them. I didn't connect them together but separately was faster and I like the idea of adjustable height left to right. Took about 3hrs to install from start of getting tools ready to clean up and first test drive. That's with my 5yr old wanting to help by stealing my sockets. Easy to install as long as your the hands on type springs are NOT a joke to mess around with. I drove from Chicago IL to Fort Worth TX and kept a 70 mile hr pace with ease. Slowing for hills and sharp turns on the interstate only. I would recommend if you are adding these for loading up your Oddy to also upgrade to a better rotor and Brake Pad to help with the braking distance. Recommend EBC rotors and EBC RED Pads . Any questions asked I will try to anwser. 265126

I have waited to do a reveiw on this until I had some mileage on them. My issue was too much sag in my 2007 Honda Odyssey when loaded. I very often have three or four bikes on a hitch platform rack plus camping gear, one or two adults and two kids. That load was just too much for the stock suspension, particularily the leverage generated by a platform bike rack carrying three or four bikes.. I first tried the SumoSprings on the van. I liked the idea that this could be easily added or removed as my needs dictated. The SumoSprings improved the sag but 4 bikes plus luggage on a 2500 mile trip showed that we were still sagging too much for my liking. I took the SumoSprings out had had the air bags installed by a local garage. I used two air lines with the schraeder valves sticking out of the bottom of the bumper on one side. I change the air pressure using a bike pump. This is very quick and easy to do. I normally leave 18psi in the bags when running empty and raise to 30 to 35 psi when I am going to be carrying a load. 18 psi to 35 psi takes four or five strokes with the pump per bag. Not hard at all. So far I have carried three bikes on my platform rack plus a full load of camping gear on a number of occasions. With the bags inflated to the rated 35 psi, the van sits completely level with the camping/bike load. The ride when loaded is pretty much equal to the ride empty without the bags but keeping in mind that the van handles differently due to the weight and leverage of the bikes hanging off of the rear. Empty I settled on the 18 psi as I am most happy with the ride of the van at that pressure. This solved my issues completely. Nothing bad to say about the SumoSprings, they just were not enough support for what I needed. Shipping from etrailer was quick and easy. 93738


Comments

The service from you folks is simply fantastic. There has been one development that is negative for the airbags. The hardware, most specifically, spring clips that attach the air tubing are not stainless steel or not a high enough grade as they are rusting and one side no longer stays on very well. I live in Wisconsin so they live in a very salty environment but the clips are not really robust enough for life under a vehicle coated in salt. I will have to find replacements. Other than this issue, the bags have been fantastic

I installed the air lift I purchased into my 2012 Odyssey today. The install went well but I wanted to point out 2 things: First, since the under side of a 2012 rear control arm isn't exposed, it should be noted in the instructions that the air line must be secured to the airbag before reinstalling the coil spring and reconnecting the control arm bolt. Also, to avoid the exhaust pipe altogether the air tubing can be run through the lower control arms and center frame section, all etrailer would have to do is supply 2 small grommets to prevent wear. I included a picture of the installed airbag and a picture of the tubing running through the center frame section. Neil 45446

I added the Airlift 1000 to my 2014 Honda Odyssey during the summer of 2017 in order to compensate for the tongue weight of a pop up camper in addition to a car full of kids and a huge car top carrier full of our gear. The "Air Helper Springs" provided enough lift that the vehicle was more balanced and the tail end did not sag so much. It did not bring the rear of the vehicle completely back to level, but it was enough so that I could now look out of the rear view mirror and see traffic behind my camper. That's what I was hoping for. As the winter months of 2017 and the beginning of 2018 came on I reduced the psi in the lift system down to about 10 psi and with cold months began to notice a lot of rubber against metal coil spring "squeegee" type noises whenever the van would go in and out of driveways at a angle and particularly over rough roads. This constant suspension sound was very annoying and so, I decided perhaps lubricating the rubber tubes inside the coil springs was a possible solution. I did not want to use a lubricant that would dissolve the rubber! After the calling the manufacturer, I learned that a white lithium spray would work well and solve the problem. So, following the manufacturer's recommendation, I used WD40 white lithium spray and the noisy rear suspension was instantly quiet. Success! 479243

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. 647265

Hi, I installed the kit last summer as per the instructions. I'm not sure but I think that the template is not correct. See pictures attached. The tubing clip attached to the right ballon felt apart when I lift the car last autumn. It seem that the hole drilled in the suspension arm is not inline. I'm not sure this product is for us, the guys from the North, here in Canada with all the salty roads in winter, the extreme cold temp and all the rusty coil springs reducing probably the durability of the product. Have a nice day. 644380

I bought this product to provide a little more stability when towing our tent trailer. The product was relatively easy to install an inflated easily. The biggest issue is with the hose connections. They simply do not hold tight. I have had the hose come off twice at the air bag even though it was fully attached. Also, you need to have a pump with you as the bags do leak air and need to be pumped up a few hours of towing. I checked my installation and can't make the connections any tighter. 606598


Comments

Youll want to make sure the barbs on the connectors and air bags are perfectly clean and dry before installation. The clamps need to be installed so they are sitting right in the middle of the barbed fitting as shown in the instructions. If the clamps need to be loosened and reset, they can become slightly bent and will never be as tight as they were the first time. As far as the leaks, thatll typically happen when the tubing isnt cut at a perfect 90-degree angle. If the cut is at an angle or is the slightest bit jagged, it can leak.

You'll need to route the hoses well, but the 'single inflation valve' they provide is great. I put mine on the rear bumper cover, pointing. Down, easy to access from the group behind the van.

I took my time to do it right safely. I had all the right tools to install the air bag with the help of the video. I routed air line up high away from the exhaust pipe and using the heat shield. The Type 3 Curt tow bar has flanges on the drivers side which was perfect to mount the nipple to inflate the air bag after using the “T” set up. It works well and I’m Happy with the results. 2016 Odyssey w/carrier for extra cargo. 461756

Review from a similar Air Lift AirLift 1000 in Vehicle Suspension


Finally got to test these out almost a year later as our Labor Day camping trip brought on the weight in our Sienna van. I have a cargo hitch loaded with about 150lbs and a fully loaded Thule top box, 100L cooler, 4 people. Last year the rear tires were deep in the wheel wells. This year I pumped them up to 28PSI to give room for possible heat changes on the east side of the state. Raised up the rear tire PSI by 3 and this combo provided a very stable ride. Van road almost perfectly level. They also hold their air. I have not once had a leak in this last year. I keep them pumped to 13psi for normal use and between 20-30psi for extra loads. Took about 3hrs to install with taking my time. Actually rather easy to do , hardest part is routing the air lines and protecting it from the elements,heat and movement. Get some of the extra accessories they offer for this install, they are cheaper and save time compared to driving to the hardware store. I didn't pay attention to them until after I was installing and decided I wanted some extra protection for the air lines and a few other things. I don't know how well these would do with more than lighter loads like a small trailer or fully loaded down vehicle. I think the higher end models might be worth a consideration if you have some more serious tasks at hand like heavy towing. Great addition to our van. 291962

I am very satisfied with this setup, installed quickly and easily. The van rides and handles better weather empty or full, and it really is nice to not have everyone flashing me at night when the whole family is in the car(low beams). I installed these on my Sienna AWD van, and did invert them so the air connections were at the top of the spring for better air hose routing. In doing so, I lost the shims. The best part was that I emailed AirLift customer service to see if I could purchase the shims. Let's just say I am more than impressed with their response. You dont find customer service like this, they were responsive, and sent me new spacers asap. I would highly recommend these to anyone. 54148

Review from a similar Air Lift AirLift 1000 in Vehicle Suspension


I have a 2008 Sienna and did the older install where the valves were mounted to the hitch, rather than through the car jack area. I also used wire loom 1/4" diameter throughout the install for extra protection and used metal loom clamps with self drilling screws as the install video showed for 2006 Sienna's. The install took about an hour once I figured everything out. I didn't do the tee fitting with only one valve because it was plastic, but I heard you can order a brass tee that might be more durable. However, since one line is longer than the other to my valves, I notice that it is difficult to completely sync up the psi, so I would do the tee fitting if I do on another vehicle. I didn't measure exactly, but definitely with the eye test the Air Lift system kept the back end up under a heavy load with hitch mount bike rack loaded with 4 bikes. I could also feel less sag and bounce when going over bumps and a more stable ride under load. So far so good, we'll see how all the parts last when they have to go through a few winters. But for now, works great. 220032

Easy install on my 2017 Jeep Wrangler JK. Running close to the maximum tongue weight I felt better with the extra support of the Airlift spring helpers. They keep the vehicle level so your headlights aren't blinding oncoming traffic, along with taking the extra load off your coil springs. The vehicles ride and handling and braking were improved. I Just installed these and used them on a short 200 mile trip so will see how they hold up over time. I would recommend these to anyone who needs the extra support of stock springs. 433390

Very pleased with this product! Install took longer than one hour but I go slow and steady anyway, I just watched the retailer install video and it was easy! My 2004 Suburban sagged badly with our travel trailer and this fixed the sag. The rear well sat at 36.5" with no air and sagged down to 34.5" with the trailer attached. The rear well sat at 37.75" with air bags filled and sagged only to 36.5" with trailer attached.

Review from a similar Air Lift AirLift 1000 in Vehicle Suspension


After installing the AirLift 1000 air bags on my 2013 Ram 1500 it raised the rear suspension up about 1.5 inches or more when I hook up our (1/2 ton tow-able) 32 foot fifth wheel RV . This gave me a much better ride and control while pulling the RV. My biggest problem was getting the air line on the bag after it was in the rear spring. When I installed the other side I attached the air line on the bag prior to sliding it into the rear spring and fed the line out the top of the spring assembly as the bag was being inserted. This made a much easier air line connection. If you need some lift and stability I would recommend the AirLift 1000 air bags. 555251

Been running these for a year with no problems. Just transported about 1,000lbs of stuff in my 2006 Sienna. Before I left I made sure the bags were at 35psi. Van hardly sagged at all. Great addition to a vehicle I use regularly to haul stuff and tow a tent trailer. Installation was moderately difficult. I mounted the shraeder valve next to the fuel fill-up behind the fuel door. I check it every time I change the oil. Seems to lose about 10psi over 5 months. 290500

Review from a similar Air Lift AirLift 1000 in Vehicle Suspension


System was ez to install. Works great! Make sure you route the hoses so they wont get pinched between the shock coils. Also route the hoses so they are securely anchored but have enough slack for suspension flexing. I tow a 8,000 lb toy hauler with about a 1200lb hitch weight. I have 6” of lift in my Ram 1500 pickup and before the bags the rear was really compressed under the load. With the bags at 30PSI the rear barely dips and drives very stable even over rough roads. Have used the system under load for over 8000 miles of high speed towing, again often over rough roads. Worked great! Only negative is that the inflate nipples and mounting rings corroded quickly. Easily replaceable with stainless parts available at any good hardware supplier. I will be changing the hoses this year as they are not hi quality and its time to change out those. I’ll use a higher quality hose this time. I also use a high end equalizer hitch to help. Both systems work well together. 541945

5 stars. Removing old bag: I found that using a heat gun helps tremendously in removing the old bag. Heating it to almost the melting point then sticking a large knife to cut it in pieces and pulling out the bottom. Installing the new one: I used gear hose clamps after rolling it up and using dish soap as a lubricant helped a lot. 547101

Thanks for the follow up, I might suggest using something that is less likely to slice the air bag like some heavy duty twine, or maybe some zip ties.

  • Installation of Air Lift 1000 Air Helper Springs # AL60815 on 2012 Honda Odyssey
  • To install the Air Lift 1000 Air Helper Springs, part # AL60815, on your 2012 Honda Odyssey, it does require the coil springs to be removed from the vehicle. The rubber jounce bumper that is inside the coil spring will have to be unbolted and removed. Then, the air spring will be installed into the coil spring and the whole coil spring with air spring will be installed back on the vehicle. A hole will need to be drilled in the control arm of the vehicle for the stem of the air spring to...

  • Rear Helper Springs for a 2008 Honda Odyssey with a Wheelchair Lift
  • Since you already have an air bag system # AL60815 installed on the 2008 Honda Odyssey I would just fix the leak and add a compressor, # AL25592. The air bag system will allow you to tweak the ride quality whereas Timbren springs will just be engaged all the time and could cause a stiffer ride. To find the leak you can use soapy water where the air lines and fittings come together. Bubbles indicate a leak. If you replace the coil springs and keep the air bags make sure that the new springs...

  • 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.

  • Installation Directions for 2007 Honda Odyssey Installing AirLift Suspension # AL60815
  • Assuming your Odyssey has the stock suspension, what you are seeing in your coil is a jounce bumper. During installation of the AirLift Suspension # AL60815 on your 2007 Honda Odyssey, step 6 had you unbolting and discarding the jounce bumper and mounting bolt. After the bumper is discarded, you will be able to install your airspring. You will insert the air spring cylinder into the coil spring with the stem down. I have attached the installation directions for you to review.

  • Rear Suspension Support Options for 2005 Acura MDX Towing 2800-lb Coleman Pop-Up Camper
  • The 2005 Acura MDX has a maximum tow rating of 4500-lbs. You can check your owner's manual to confirm the rating for your particular vehicle. Your 2800-lb Coleman Westlake Pop-Up camper trailer is likely to be within its capacity even when fully loaded for a trip. Still, the sag you are experiencing may be remedied or at least reduced by a weight distribution hitch, which is a better option than air bags for towing. Since the vehicle is nearly 10 years old you might want to have a qualified...

  • Air Bag Helper Springs and Yakima Roof Rack for a 2016 Honda Odyssey with Naked Roof
  • Air Lift 1000 helper springs # AL60815 do indeed fit the 2016 Honda Odyssey! I have linked a video showing an example installation on a 2011 Odyssey. Installation will be similar on your 2016 model. You can install a Yakima roof rack on your 2016 Odyssey with naked roof as well. You will need the following parts: 58 inch crossbars # Y00409 Control towers Y00214 (discontinued) Tracks # Y01126 Landing pads # Y00221 Keep in mind that because it requires a track mount roof rack...

  • Does Air Lift Kit for 2011 Honda Odyssey Change Suspension Setup for Vehicle
  • The Air Lift kit part # AL60815 which is a confirmed fit for your 2011 Honda Odyssey does not fundamentally change the suspension setup of the vehicle. So if the very unlikely event the bag would fail essentially your suspension would just go back to how it was before. You should note that bag failure is incredibly rare so it's not something I would recommend you plan for. I attached an install video for this kit on a similar 2011 Odyssey as yours as well.

  • Suspension Enhancement for Smoother Ride on 2015 Honda Odyssey
  • I spoke with my contact at Air Lift and he said if you do not intend to tow or haul a trailer, using AirLift 1000 Air Helper Springs for Coil Springs # AL60815, which you reference, on your 2015 Honda Odyssey will actually make for a stiffer ride. These air helper springs are commonly used for hauling or towing and for keeping your Honda Odyssey at normal ride height. My contact recommended a softer aftermarket coil spring. Unfortunately we do not carry them for your vehicle. You...

  • Weight Distribution System for 2011 Range Rover Sport with Air Suspension
  • A trailer weight distribution/sway control (WD/SC) system is appropriate under a number of conditions, such as when the trailer weighs more than half the weight of the towing vehicle, when the vehicle headlights point upward when it is hitched, if steering and braking performance suffer or if there is rear-end sag in the vehicle. The linked article and video on WD/SC go into detail about these conditions. Vehicles that have an automatic leveling system can still use WD/SC. The procedure...

  • Installation Instructions for AirLift 1000 Air Helper Springs AL60815
  • I checked with AirLift and the installation instructions for their rear axle kit # AL60815 do specify 33-ft-lbs for the control arm flange bolt. I accessed these instructions online at their website so they are definitely the current ones. If you attached a link to a technical service bulletin from Honda it did not come through. The instructions are linked for your reference.
