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.

We tow a Travel Trailer that has a very heavy tongue weight with our Ram 1500. Ram trucks have coil spring on the rear which make for an excellent ride, unless towing something with a heave tongue weight. The truck did not handle well while towing until we added these air bags. Tows like a dream now! We did not install the onboard compressor which can be ordered separately, but we will be doing that soon. 818029

I watch a video, which states you can roll this type of lifter up and squeeze it through the bottom spring, I tried to roll it up like the video and it did. I didn't try it, I think it should be a better way to install these than to go thru the process in your instructions like removing parts and marking locations of the springs. What do you think, with your instructions or the video way. 774332

Again, great experience ordering from etrailer! I bought the Air Lift 1000HD to assist my 2019 Ram 1500 with a 900lb hitch load. The product is good but could be better. I think the air fitting on top of the bag and the schrader valves should be a 90 degree swivel push lock. I also think the plastic tee should be a push lock y-fitting instead of a tee. I was able to install the bags using the hot dog folding method (Google it if your not familiar). I would recommend using some tape to hold the spacer in the top of your spring mount before letting air in the bags. My spacer fell out and it was hard to get in after the bags aired up. I mounted the schrader valve in the rear corner of my bed by the tail light, just used large washers to mount in existinghole (no drilling). Ran the air lines up the rear stake pocket. Have run the truck with 10lbs in the bag for a week, can't tell a difference in handling. Will be bringing our camper home tomorrow, hopefully the bags make trailering better. Hope this helps! 771124

Review from a similar AirLift 1000 in Vehicle Suspension


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.

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. 647265


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.

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

This was the easiest install I've ever done! One hour on a 06 Sienna. The video made it simple. The van drives great with only passengers so far. Roll has been reduced tons. This is the 4th time I've ordered from etrailer. The directions on all the products has been great. Videos are spot on. 227466

Review from a similar AirLift 1000 in Vehicle Suspension


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

Review from a similar AirLift 1000 in Vehicle Suspension


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

Review from a similar AirLift 1000 in Vehicle Suspension


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

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

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. 90454

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.

Just what I needed on my Toyota Van. This combined with my Curt Weight Distribution Hitch makes towing my Wolf Pup travel trailer all good! Nice and level now. Easy to install too. I kind of like leaving pressure in them even when not towing to reduce body roll on the van. I ran two separate air hoses on mine so pressure can’t move from one side to the other. 576417

Review from a similar AirLift 1000 in Vehicle Suspension


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 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

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

    The Air Lift AirLift 1000HD Air Helper Springs for Coil Springs part # AL60828HD is a confirmed fit for your 2019 Ram 1500. These can be helpful in eliminating a lot of the sag you are experiencing. Keep in mind these do not increase your capacity they just take the strain and stress off of the suspension of your Ram.

    The HD air bags from Air Lift part # AL60828HD are thicker material than the non-HD bags which is why you can't slip them between the coils of the rear suspension. Instead you have to push the bag through the top of the coil spring.
