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.

If you tow trailers or carry heavy loads in the bed of your truck or van, you can use Air Lift Helper Springs to keep your vehicle level and free from sagging. It does not affect the ride or steering negatively and is easy to adjust with a compressor, battery-operated inflator or hand pump. 654436


Comments
I forget they are there! Its only when towing trailers or putting something heavy in the bed of the truck, I am reminded that its a very practical upgrade to the trucks suspension. When checking tire pressures I check the airsprings pressure. Pressure s are minimal.

Purchased for 2016 Ram that sagged do to a fiberglass cap and boat tongue weight. They level out truck and reduce the number of high beam flashes I get from oncoming traffic. I run 20 psi normally and 25 with boat. I have never had a leak nor problems with truck on a frame lift. Thus is my second vehicle with a set. Highly recommend. 504679

I wanted to stop the droop when towing my 21' trailer. Works great. Read the reviews before you start your install. There are many good tips there that are not in the instructions. When folding the flattened air bag for insertion into the spring use zip ties to hold it in the folded position. Even though the second opening the in the spring looks bigger than the bottom opening, use the bottom one as it has a better angle. When applying the air hose to the fittings soak the hose 30 seconds or so in hot water so you can seat the hose all the way onto the fitting. Removing the tire and wheel gives you better access when putting the air hose on the bag fitting. Dropping the spare tire makes routing the air hose to the back a lot simpler. 351976

I received my air helper springs yesterday and today I got them installed, with no issues. I removed the wheel well liners and jacked up the frame, one side at a time. I did not remove the wheels. I folded the bags and zip tied them as recommended and stuffed them between the top of the coiled spring. Jacking the frame up 4 inches helps spread the coils on the springs. After I ran the hose out the top of the spring perch (or whatever you call it) I found an oval hole in the top of the frame about 8 inches back. I ran the hose into this hole on each side and all the way out the back end of the frame. This should help protect the hose from the exhaust pipe. I drilled two holes not far from the passenger side of the license plate and put the valve stems there. Job done. I will be pulling a 24 ft camper trailer in about a month and look forward to seeing how these work. 432873

I just installed my airlift 1000 kit in my 2014 Ram 1500. The installation only took about 90 minutes and only required a pair of pliers, a knife, a jack and some jack stands. I warmed the bags with my floor heater to make them more pliable and softened the air lines with hot water so they install on the nipples easier, as suggested by etrailer's tech tip videos. So far this seams to be a quality kit and is holding air. I haven't tested it under a load yet so I can't speak to that, although I am optimistic based on other reviews. Etrailer's customer support is outstanding and their shipping is quick. I couldn't be happier at this point. 153068

Installation was easy, and that’s really all I can comment on at this point as I am yet to use it. I’d recommend going from the top of the coil down when trying to install the folded bag. 510670

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

I installed these on my 2009 Ram 1500. The product was exactly as described and even with being located in Alaska, they arrived super quick! I haven't had the chance to test them out loaded yet as I just installed them last night, but plan on revising my review after the load testing goes! I will note that I installed these differently than stated in the instructions. I lifted the truck off the ground with the axle hanging and removed the rear coils completely and installed the air bag. This seemed like a much quicker and easier route than trying to fish the bag through the coil on the truck. I also routed my air lines in the rear bed stake pockets and under the edge of the bed to protect the valve from the weather. I will add that I have the Tuf-Truck 1223 rear coils and not the stock coils in the rear. I was hesitant to purchase airbags as its not the factory coil, but it worked out perfectly! with the HD coils and Airbags I should have no issues with sag. Overall I am really satisfied with this purchase. Every ram 1500 with coils should have these. 338266

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. 361533

Installed Air Helper Springs on my 2014 Ram 4X4. Would recommend anyone to first remove the rear tires/wheels and pop out the plastic inner fender wells. Makes it a lot easier installing the air line on top of the air bags. Other than that, have bought numerous products from etrailer and "ALL" have been excellent products! 139412

I received this in just a few days and had a friend help me install it. I am VERY pleased with it! I had installed a leveling kit to the front end of my 2011 Dodge 1500 Sport, and after loading the bed with tools that I use for work, it sat down in the rear. These air bags are perfect. I put about 25lbs in to level out the truck. The truck rides better and looks great. We drilled out one of the bolt holes that secure my tag and installed the valve stem there. Works Great 107304


Comments
After having this product for a year, I can honestly say that I will never be without it! With the addition of this simple inexpensive product, other than just the looks I have noticed that my tire wear has dramatically improved! you know how cheap tires are... In the last year I have put about 40k miles on the truck. Im in the Agriculture business and see a lot of dirt roads and drive out into fields daily.I check the system air pressure any time I notice a change in my tire pressure. I havent seen any leaks and that was my main concern.Overall, I am extremely pleased with this product and believe it was worth every penny.Bottom line, if you are reading this review and are thinking about purchasing this product DO IT!

Shipped quick, boxed well, simple instructions. Installation was a bit more difficult than expected, but not impossible. If I could do it again, I’d remove the fender wells like the etrailer video suggests. I do recommend using zip ties to fold the bags down prior to slipping them in the coil springs. Hooked up my camper, hooked up the weight distribution bars, added air, and it significantly reduced the sag and raised the camper to a level position on my 2017 Ram Big Horn 4x4 towing a 26’ forest river camper 5750 lbs. I had no leaks after a 16 hour leak down test at 35 psi. Just a fantastic and inexpensive upgrade that drastically improves ride quality and stability. No more sweaty palms while driving! 557399

2013 Dodge Ram Pickup

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

I purchased the air bags to level my truck when pulling my snowmobile trailer. I haven’t had a chance to pull anything yet. The installation however was extremely easy. The instructions were great and I watched a few youtube videos to look for any potential issues. I pumped them up to 12 lbs and could tell immediately that these will level my truck when needed. Best $100 (or less) upgrade so far. Do it! 854327

After one year of use I learned my initial installment was not done correctly which resulted in a severed tube to one side. Since I chose to use one air valve for both sides, pressure would not build on either side. I "cheated" by doing the initial installation by reaching over the top of the tire and attaching the hose to the bladder by mostly feel. Today I removed the rear tire and the plastic fender line on my Ram truck where I could see the tube was being pinched by the coil and the plastic donut that came with the kit. With full access I was now able to re-route the tube down through the top support of the spring and down to the brass fitting on the bladder. Fortunately there was enough extra tube to do the re-routing. Feeling pretty good about the fix of the leaky side I decided to work on the "good" side where I noted the tube was pinched but not severed. Performing the same method I re-routed the tube to a safe position. Now with confidence I am taking my camper on a nice trip! Yes, I recommend this product. Just be careful on the tube routing. (The instructions likely told me so, but living it makes it all more real.) 816142

  • Advantages and Disadvantages of Using a Single Path or Dual Path Compressor System for Air Springs
    Your understanding of how the air in the bags will operate is correct. If both bags are on one valve the air will shift from one to the other while turning with a heavy load. However, if the load is distributed evenly it will also return to even once you straighten out. So it isn't really an unsafe situation unless the load is much heavier on one side compared to the other. With dual valves if one bag was to lose air for some reason your ride would then be uneven.

  • Why Would Air Lift Compressor Kit on Truck Cycle with No Trailer Connected
    The air bags need to have a minimum of 5 psi in them at all times so that the hold their shape and not damage themselves. If your bag pressure dips below 5 (or whatever your preset minimum pressure is) the compressor will auto kick on to make sure it's where it needs to be. If this is happening quite a bit you most likely have a leak and you'd want to go over all of the air lines to see if you can find where the leak is. Most leaks are from air tubing not being cut totally square.

    For your 2017 Ram 1500, I recommend the Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Air Helper Springs - Rear Axle # AL57365 which will give you the load leveling support you desire as well as the adjustability of 5 to 100 psi for the best ride quality. This kit comes with the manual inflation valves and will allow you to adjust each spring individually. This product requires at least 8-1/8 inches between the frame and the jounce bumper strike plate. A really nice alternative is the Air Lift AirLift...

  • When Using Tee Fitting Do Both Air Lift Bags have Same Pressure
    If you are using a T fitting that comes with the part # AL60818 the entire system would be equalized to the same psi. So if you inflated the valve to 30 psi both bags and the lines will have exactly 30 psi in them.

  • Compatibility of AirLift # AL60818 Air Helper Springs with 2012 Dodge Ram 1500 Express
    My Air Lift representative tells me that as long as your Ram 1500 Express is equipped with the coil spring suspension, and as long as there's nothing blocking the center of the coils so the air springs will fit, their # AL60818 AirLift 1000 Air Helper Spring Kit would work just fine for you. You might also be interested in an on-board compressor kit like part # AL25592. The compressor kit would allow you to adjust the air pressure in the air springs from the comfort of your truck cab.

Air bags should always be inflated to at least 5-psi pressure.

  • Solution for 2011 Dodge Ram 1500 With Suspension Sag and Some Sway
    For what you are experiencing we have a better option than suspension enhancement. Instead you would want a weight distribution system. This reduces the sag and sway by distributing some of the tongue weight up to the front axle of the tow vehicle. Because of this you get better traction for handling and turning plus a reduction in sway. The part # AL60818 would reduce the sway but wouldn't address any of the other problems. The best way to pick out a weight distribution system is...

  • Rear Axle Air Bag Kit for 2012 Ram 1500 4x4 with 4-Inch Lift
    The AirLift 1000 Air Helper Spring Kit # AL60818 will fit all cab versions of your 2012 Ram 1500 4x4. If you have a 4-inch suspension lift on the truck you may need spacers; these are not required if the truck just has a body lift.

You can let me know the brand and part number of your lift kit...

    For your 2014 Dodge Ram 1500, the AirLift 1000 Air Helper Springs, part # AL60818 would be a good fit. You said you have a 3 inch lift kit installed on your Ram. I spoke with my contact at Air Lift and they told me that spacers were not necessary for your Ram. The way these air helper springs work is that they expand within the coil springs and do not elongate to reduce the gap caused by the suspension lift kit. If the suspension lift kit includes using a smaller diameter coil spring...

  • Troubleshooting Sagging Suspension with a 2011 Ram 1500 after Weight Distribution Install
    If the rear end of your 2011 Dodge Ram 1500 is still sagging after using a weight distribution hitch that means one of two things are going on. Either the WD system you are using is rated too low for the tongue weight of your setup, or your WD system isn't set up properly. The best way to pick out a weight distribution system is to base it off of the loaded tongue weight of the setup when it is loaded and ready to tow. This figure also includes the weight of any cargo behind the rear...

  • Which is Better for Rear Suspension Enhancement 1 Inflation Valve or 2
    For most people it's better to just have 1 inflation valve for rear suspension enhancement air bags. Rarely does a situation call for needing different psi in either bag on either side of the truck. 99% of the applications will call for the same pressure on both sides so using one valve allows you to always have equal pressure in either bag.
