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 1000HD adjustable air springs have 2,100 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 1000HD is a breeze to install with standard tools and comes with an easy-to-follow instruction manual.


AirLift 1000HD 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 1000HD 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.

Speaker 1: Today we're taking a look at the AirLift 1000HD air helper springs for rear coil springs, so this product fits certain years of the Dodge Ram and Ram trucks. To ensure that it is a fit for your vehicle, you can use the vehicle fit guide at etrailer.com.This kit provides your vehicle with up to 2,100 pounds of load leveling support. It reduces the amount of strain placed on your rear suspension and improves both safety and ride quality. These are designed to support your existing rear coil spring suspension when you're hauling or towing. It keeps your vehicle level when you're hauling a heavier load, which helps improves steering and braking performance, helps maintain safe headlight aim, and it keeps your tires from wearing unevenly.Also with it installed, it lets you manually adjust your air pressure. That way, you can get the even load distribution and support that you need for your application, so it lets you level your vehicle front to rear.

You could also inflate each spring independently for side-to-side leveling of off-center loads with the installation of dual air lines.Again, it reduces the amount of strain placed on your OEM suspension, so it's going to extend the life of your OEM suspension. It also helps diminish sway and absorbs road shocks for a smooth ride.We're looking at a durable molded polyurethane construction. These springs compress and install inside your vehicle's rear coil springs. It comes with manual inflation valves which are typically located on the rear bumper for easy access. It includes two air springs, necessary spacers, detailed installation instructions.

Everything you need is included with the hardware kit.Load leveling capacity is up to 2,100 pounds. Just keep in mind that these will not increase your vehicle's weight carrying capacity, so be careful not to exceed the manufacturer's recommended weight limit. Air pressure is adjustable. You need to make sure that you always have at least 5 psi in the springs and no more than 50 psi. These are made in the U.S.A.

and they are covered with a lifetime warranty.That's going to do it for today's look at the AirLift 1000HD air helper springs for rear coil springs.

If your truck will take the Firestone Airbag I recommend those but if you have a half ton Ram with coil springs these are the ticket. They made it so I could comfortably hook up a trailer with 720# tongue weight. I had 5 inches of drop in the back before and after adding the in spring air back I only had about one inch drop. Power was not a problem just handling. In my opinion these are your best option since the regular air bags will not work. 578077

I found it easier to go ahead and pull the spring out and put the bag in from the top.To pull the spring out can be done by removing bottom shock bolts, no spring compressor needed. I tested the bags with a ton, they worked very well. 594359

Great air lift system for my 2015 Ram 1500. Improved towing load leveling and ride. Had these on a previous vehicle years ago and they worked great then too. I would recommend to anyone wanting to improve ride and handling when heavily loaded. 717200

Do you have a question about this Vehicle Suspension?


  • Comparing the Timbrens and AirLift Springs for a 2016 Ram 1500
  • Your 2016 Ram 1500 is absolutely equipped to tow a 6,000 lb trailer. However, this vehicle has rear coil springs which tend to compress more so than trucks with rear leaf springs when a load is present. This means that the vehicle will be more prone to sagging/squatting while loaded/towing. In order to reduce the amount of sag/squat you receive while loaded/towing, I highly recommend using a set of suspension enhancements such as the Air Lift AirLift 1000HD Air Helper Springs part #...

These air springs will reduce the strain on your Ram's suspension and you will be able to readjust your weight distribution system; just note that you will want to inflate the springs before adjusting your weight distribution.

  • Recommended Rear Air Springs and Compressor for 2018 Ram 1500 Quad Cab
  • For your 2018 Ram 1500 Quad cab I suggest the medium-duty AirLift 1000HD Air Helper Spring kit # AL60818HD. This coil helper spring kit fits both 2WD and 4WD trucks and provides up to 2100-lbs of rear-axle load leveling support for your cargo application. There are lighter-duty kits like # AL60818 (rated for 1000-lbs) and heavier-duty kits like # AL88370 (rated for 5000-lbs) but the 1000HD kit # AL60818HD will be right in the sweet spot for your cargo hauling needs.

  • Recommended Air Springs for 2018 Ram 1500 4WD with Rear Coil Spring Suspension Carrying Cargo Loads
  • Based on your specific requirements for selective and adjustable rear axle suspension support the kit I recommend for your 4WD Ram 1500 is the AirLift 1000HD Air Helper Spring Kit for Coil Springs, part # AL60818HD. This offers twice the capacity of the standard duty kit # AL60818 that you referenced. You can use these kits so long as your truck does not have the factory air suspension system. Kit # AL60818HD has a capacity of 2100-lbs so it will be suited to your heavier loads but do...

  • Best Load Leveling Kit for a 2012 Dodge Ram 1500 4X4
  • There are several different types of leveling systems for your 2012 Dodge Ram 1500 but if you are looking for the best then you will want to go with a set of air bags because they let you adjust how much support/comfort that you need for any given load. That said, I saw that you have already purchased the Air Lift AirLift 1000HD Air Helper Springs part # AL60818HD. These are not what I consider to be the best but will get the job done.

  • Recommended Air Lift Suspension Enhancement System for 2017 Ram 1500
  • Between the two Air Lift systems you mentioned in your question I recommend going with the Air Lift AirLift 1000HD Air Helper Springs # AL60818HD as long as you don't have the factory Air Suspension system on your Ram. These air springs feature a load-leveling capacity of up to 2,100 pounds which should be plenty to help bring the rear of your Ram back up with the golf cart loaded, but unlike with the jounce-style springs of the AirCell # AL52205, your ride quality when empty won't suffer....

  • Is Air Lift SmartAir II Compressor System Compatible with AirLift 1000HD Air Helper Springs
  • Yes, the Air Lift SmartAir II Automatic-Leveling Compressor System for Air Helper Springs # AL25491 that you referenced is compatible with the Air Lift AirLift 1000HD Air Helper Springs # AL60818HD that you referenced. The compressor system automatically levels your vehicle using a unique non-contact magnetic height sensor, which allows the system to intelligently determine whether the air springs should be inflated or deflated

  • Comparing Firestone and Air Lift Air Helper Springs for Coil Springs on 2018 Ram 1500
  • The biggest difference between the Firestone Coil-Rite Air Helper Springs # F4185 and Air Lift 1000HD Air Helper Springs for Coil Springs # AL60818HD is the capacity of the Air Lift. The Air Lift helper springs have a 2,100 lb load-leveling capacity compared to the 1,000 lb capacity of the Firestone springs which gives you more leeway when towing. The higher capacity of the Air Lift, along with the lifetime warranty they come with, are why I recommend them over the option from Firestone...

  • Suspension Enhancement Recommendation for 2009 Dodge Ram 1500 with 2 Inch Lift
  • There is a suspension enhancement option that will work with your 2009 Dodge Ram 1500, though I reached out to a representative of Firestone who told me the Firestone Coil-to-Air-Spring Conversion Kit # F2595 will not work on your 2009 Dodge Ram 1500. Instead, I recommend using the Air Lift AirLift 1000HD Air Helper Springs for Coil Springs # AL60818HD which will fit inside your coil springs to improve your truck's handling and stability. Because these springs fit inside your Ram's coil...

  • Is Install of Air Lift Kit # AL60818HD and # AL60818 the Same
  • The install for the two kits you mentioned part # AL60818HD and # AL60818 is the exact same. The only difference between the two kits is the capacity of the bags. The HD kit has a capacity of up to 2,100 lbs and the other up to 1,000 lbs. The install would be the exact same as the install video you mentioned which I attached to this page as well.

  • Suspension Enhancement Recommendation for 2014 Ram 1500 Thats Smoother Ride than Timbren
  • TImbrens provide great suspension support but they have a reputation as providing a rough ride quality. They'll have to come off if you want to improve the ride quality as adding more support won't help. The best solution would be to replace them with the Air Lift kit part # AL60818HD that you mentioned as this allows you to adjust how much support you have so that you can balance support and ride quality. Going with too much air pressure will give you a harsh ride quality too.

  • Recommended Gooseneck Trailer Hitch for 2012 Ram 1500 Big Horn
  • If you have the 6-1/2 foot bed with the Quad Cab or the 5-1/2 foot bed with the Crew Cab, I recommend the same hitch. It is the B&W Turnoverball Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch w/ Custom Installation Kit - 30,000 lbs # BWGNRK1309. This is a confirmed fit for your truck and if you have the 6-1/2 foot bed without RamBox it also offers a 5th wheel slider compatibility for a clean bed. If you want a good hitch but a more economical option, I recommend the Curt # C60730 which is only a...

  • The SumoSprings Solo Custom Helper Springs - Rear Axle # SSR-307-47 for your 2015 Ram 1500 4x4 will give you 1,500 lbs load support at 50% compression as they offer progressive load support. It sounds like you already have the aftermarket air springs like # AL60818 or Firestone # F4185 rated for 1,000 lbs load leveling capacity. If this is the case, then I recommend replacing them with # AL60818HD rated for 2,100 lbs and giving you the same connections but higher capacity. You...

  • Comparing Timbrens and Air Lift Springs for a 2019 Ram 1500
  • The big deciding factor in comparing these popular suspension enhancement options is usually ride quality and adjustability since both are simple to install. The Air Lift AirLift 1000HD Air Helper Springs part # AL60818HD will provide a smoother, less stiff ride experience for all in the tow vehicle and for that reason it is my recommendation. That ride quality counts for a lot on long trips to your favorite camping locale as well as in day to day use. The only trade off to consider...

  • I do have an option for you but the AirLift 1000HD Air Helper Springs for Coil Springs part # AL60828HD is only a fit for the 2019 Ram 1500. I recommend Air Lift AirLift 1000 Air Helper Springs for Coil Springs - Rear part # AL60818HD for improving the rear sag in the Ram. These air helper springs will fit into the coil springs of the suspension and support them to eliminate the sag and sway that you may experience when towing a heavier load.

  • The Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement that you need for the 2013 Dodge Ram 1500 is the Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement System part # TDRTT1500. The Timbrens are great at combating rear sag in the truck while towing because they provide the extra support that the suspension needs to handle a heavier load. They are a great option if the Ram is not your daily driver but if you are planning on driving the truck without the travel trailer attached, I recommend a suspension enhancement...

  • Are Dimensions Same Between Airlift 1000 and Airlift 1000HD
  • Yes, the HD version of the Air Lift part # AL60818HD is the same dimensions as non-HD version # AL60818. While we haven't confirmed the fit of either in your vehicle from Air Lift I'm glad you were able to install it without issue. I don't foresee you needing the additional weight capacity of the HD since your Durango is a lighter duty vehicle but the HD will fit exactly like the non-HD model.

What we need you to measure is 1) the inside diameter of those aftermarket springs and 2) the inside height within the coils with the unloaded vehicle at rest on level ground.
