Heavy loads can cause the back of your vehicle to sag and add unnecessary stress to your suspension. This can affect your braking, handling, headlight aim, and even the wear on your tires. To improve your vehicle's ability to endure heavy loads, you need to add support to your existing coil springs.


Adjustable Air Pressure

Air Lift's 1000 Universal Air Springs fit inside your rear coil springs and have 1,000 pounds of load-leveling capacity. You can inflate and deflate these tough polyurethane helper springs as needed, ensuring the perfect amount of support for every load. It 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 (sold separately), which will let you monitor and inflate your air springs.


How to Choose the Correct Universal Air Spring Kit

If there isn't a specific Air Lift 1000 Air Spring kit for your vehicle, you can use a universal kit to get the support you need. However, you'll have to take a couple measurements on your rear coil springs to ensure you get the right fit. Also, this kit will not fit vehicles with coil-over shocks or coil springs with internal jounce bumpers.


measurement diagram

First, unload your vehicle to make sure it's at normal ride height. Then, measure the inside height of your coil spring, which will be from the upper spring seat to the lower spring seat. Lastly, measure the inside diameter of the spring at its widest point. Once you have these measurements, use the table below to find the correct kit by matching up your diameter and height values. Since the air spring cylinder will inflate, it's okay if the cylinder is slightly undersized compared to the size of the coil spring. The spring pitch will also indicate the total air pressure the bag should hold. This measurement is the distance between the coils. The bag can hold 50 psi if it is less than 1" and 35 psi if it is greater than 1". Additionally, some kits include spacers to make up for any height differences.

I own a 2004 Kia Sorento and About a year ago i purchased an Air Lift AirLift 1000 Vehicle Suspension from you to enhance the suspension of my SUV. At first i was skeptical but after installation and a short road test it was obvious the improvement on handling , i will recommend it to anyone . Here are some pictures after one year of use.

Review from a similar AirLift 1000 in Vehicle Suspension


I’m very happy with the air coils. I’ve had them for two years now without any issues. I originally installed them because I tow my boat with 2016 4runner . The rear end would sag quite a bit when towing. I installed these air coils and immediately corrected the situation. What I didn’t know is how much it would improve daily driving. The truck handles much better now since installing. The air coils have completely removed anybody roll. Giving me much more confidence when taking corners. I installed the Onboard air compressor, figuring I would be raising and lowering air pressure in the coils when towing and not towing. What I found is setting the coils at 15 psi was all I needed for both towing and daily driving. So long story short, save some money and don’t buy the onboard compressor. You can just set these air coils with a pump to your desired psi and leave it. In my case I have not had to add or lower psi in over a year. So the bags keep their pressure.

As far as install they’re pretty easy. There’s tens of [onine] videos that are very helpful. I did try the one method of smashing the bag and sliding through the coil and found it to be too difficult. I ended up dropping the axle and pulling the coils. It also made things easier when cutting the bump stops. I ran in my hoses from the top of the axle down. I felt it created less pinch points and was easier to route.

Good luck

Installed on 15 Jetta tdi. I Removed wheel, then coil spring, (1 side at a time) folded bag like hot dog bun and installed into coil spring upside down (fitting facing down) cause it would have hit otherwise. Reinstalled, ran lines, mounted fill valve in bottom part of rear bumper and filled. It’s been a year and is still working perfectly.

The Insides of the Rear tires wore out within 2k miles of having these installed and aired up.

Review from a similar AirLift 1000 in Vehicle Suspension


I was experiencing bottoming out on my '03 Nissan Pathfinder by just adding passengers or groceries. At first, I thought about replacing the rear springs, but after installing the Air Lift system I was more than satisfied. I can increase pressure to 25 psi for cargo/heavy loads and then decrease to about 12 psi for everyday driving. My vehicle sits up like it was new and no longer sags or bounces. After 12 months and 9,000 miles I'm glad I went with this upgrade. Take your time and follow instructions for a perfect install.

Review from a similar AirLift 1000 in Vehicle Suspension


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.

This lift system was exactly what the doctor ordered! We pumped up the airbags to the maximum, and then loaded my wife’s 2008 Toyota Sienna minivan up with 4+ passengers, camping supplies, a spare tire on the roof, and then attached a cargo rack to the hitch with an oversized cooler packed to the gills, firewood, and chairs without the bumper dropping an inch!!! It was an amazing sight to behold. I highly recommend this lift system!

Looked at these for several days, watched a few YouTube videos and pulled the trigger. They went in easy no fuss. Hook the 25’ air stream to her maybe just maybe a inch of squat. Help control the bounce. Please with my purchase.

Review from a similar AirLift 1000 in Vehicle Suspension


With the tubing going under the suspension I don’t see it lasting long. The air bags looked a little short for the springs but I could not find if that was normal in the instructions. I don’t like the way the airlines are exposed to the ground. I believe I should have just gotten the upgraded rear springs.The air bags went in fairly easy after I deflated them and put the cap on to keep them deflated. I had to go through the side of the springs not the bottom as instructed. So far the air bags them selves are working properly.


Comments
Thank you for your review. The bags press out on the coils to keep them from compressing instead of up and down. They are not designed to touch the top and bottom.

Review from a similar AirLift 1000 in Vehicle Suspension


I installed the AirLift 1000 air bags on my 1998 Toyota Sienna. I
flattened the bags per instruction but, I found that if I also folded
them in half vertically, they went in very easy. It took literally 30 seconds per side to install the bags inside the coil springs. I saw
where some people had to use a wooden spoon or blunt tool to force the
bags inside the coil springs. The method I used took no tools, and was
easy peasy.

The kit was shy 1 of the small hose clamps, otherwise everything
necessary for installation was there.

I'll be test driving for a couple of days and will update my review afterwards.

Review from a similar AirLift 1000 in Vehicle Suspension


Air tubing seems a little flimsy. But air bags appear robust and good quality - hence very difficult to fold and squeeze between coils of spring. It was a real battle and took over five hours total.

Review from a similar AirLift 1000 in Vehicle Suspension


The Air Lift 1000 system is not fully installed yet after 4 and 1/2 hours of effort. I have a 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee. The instructive videos from etailer were very useful and an improvement over the written techniques from Air Lift. I was able to get the air bags within the springs via the folded hot dog bun technique (i.e., folded length wise and using a temporary zip ties). Unfortunately, the bags did not reinflate after the zip ties and sealing cap was removed. I am, therefore, unable to get the tubing onto each bag's nipple. I tried calling Air Lift to discuss but they didn't pick up the phone. All other tubing and the inflating valve were successfully installed. I plan to bring the vehicle to a local tire shop to see if they can do this last connection to the air bags, and then try inflating. :(


Comments
As long as the 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee is not lifted or lowered then this spring kit is the right kit. The manufacturer will be reaching out to assist you.

This was easy to install and highly effective. I have a hitch mounted bike rack and when my Sienna is loaded up for a weekend of camping and biking, it used to ride low in the back. It also would scrape on some rougher dirt roads/mild 4wd roads. These air bags helped with that as well. I highly recommend these for people doing similar things.


Comments
Still totally agree with my initial assessment of these air bags. Id definitely recommend them!

Review from a similar AirLift 1000 in Vehicle Suspension


I purchased these a year ago. I tow a heavier camper and wanted more support on the rear of my Ram 1500. It works great. Up to this point I haven’t had any troubles. It will boost the rear end of my truck pretty high and easily offset the weight of the camper. I’m no mechanic and I was able install it without issue. Follow the instructions to collapse the air bags and use large zip ties to keep it collapsed. This allows you to work in between the springs easily. Before you let them go and cut the zip ties and allow them to reinstate, go ahead and run your air line in the top and down to make it easier to hook to the airbags. If you do this it make it easy to get inside the springs. You can use soapy water solution to make it slide between the springs easier to if needed. Theme just run your lines to the bumper. Nothing hard to do at all. I run them all year with around 7psi in them. It saids run them with a minimum of 5 psi. Them when your going to tow air them up. I usually air them up to 40psi and I’m all set to go. I would recommend them and place them also on the next truck I get.

Install was not too difficult. It helps a great deal to watch the installation video BEFORE installing this product. It takes about 1 hour to install. I would recommend this product for most travel trailer towing options. I use this kit for a 28' Forest River travel trailer with a weight of 6,500lbs. 40PSI in the bags keep the hitch level.




by:

Review from a similar AirLift 1000 in Vehicle Suspension


Great kit overall. Do heed the install instructions, and not online forums for the 5th gen 4Runner. The instructions are correct, and forums are not.

Only think I did not like about the kit are the barbed fittings, and the flimsy plastic tee that’s included. The barbed fitting are extremely difficult to have the air line engaged into in a confined space under the vehicle. A push to connect fitting, or some other type of compression fitting would have been easier.

Review from a similar AirLift 1000 in Vehicle Suspension


I installed this on my 2016 Ford flex. It prevented the car from sagging while towing a trailer. So it did the job but there is absolutely no way this could have been installed the way it was advertised. The only way to install it was to free the springs from the vehicle and slide it from the bottom of the springs. Also, one of valves was manufactured poorly (it didn't have the hole to push the air into). Because of that, I wasn't able to pump the air helpers independently. My workaround was to install the "T" so both air helpers are pumped via one valve.
In other words, it does the job, but the installation was much more difficult than advertised and one of the valves wasn't usable.


Comments
It sounds like one of the air bags is defective. Not to worry, this product has a 60 day worry free guarantee. We will contact you via email.

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.









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.

Review from a similar AirLift 1000 in Vehicle Suspension


We tried these and the rear suspension improves if we are carrying a bike rack, however after driving 4 hours or so the bags need to be reinflated. Not sure if this is typical or not. If there is a slow air leak I'm not sure how to easily locate it. Unfortunately, solid rubber shocks are not available for my vehicle.


Comments
One of the best ways to tell if you have a leak is to use soapy water and wipe it on the bags as soon as you fill it. If you see bubbles forming, it means that you most likely have a leak. It is more common for leaking to occur around the air valve, so I recommend keeping an eye around that area. This product does have a lifetime warranty available for bags and brackets, so you may be qualified to receive a new bag. I do see that Air Lift prefers to handle all of their own warranties, I highly recommend you contact Air Lift for a replacement under their warranty.

I bought these to replace the blown bladders in my 2006 Winnebago Siteseer Worsehorse chassis. I'm a handy guy but was a little nervous about cutting out the old bladders and installing the Air Lift 1000 units. I found the customer comments very helpful especially the comment on using a heat gun to pull the old bladders out. The first one took me a couple of hours to figure out, the second one took me less than an hour to deinstall old and install new.

I REALLY appreciate the hose extensions for the valves. I installed them up in the engine compartment where I can easily access them for checking and topping off the air. For the units I replaced, I had to crawl up under the rig to check and fill--no more of that nasty, dirty crawl for this senior citizen.

Filled to 60 PSI, the first drive was noticeably different, the handling feels much stiffer than it had. We're launching out on a 3,600-mile road trip in the next couple of weeks, I'm looking forward to seeing how they handle on the open road.

My advice to folks-- the installation seems daunting, but the results are well worth the challenge. I encourage you to try this product.

After a year still very satisfied with these air lifts. Ive recommended them time and again to my fellow RVers

Had the air lift 1000 air helper springs installed 6 months ago on my 2000 Nissan Pathfinder that the coil springs had relaxed on and would bottom out on bumps. Love them! Put in 12psi and have loaded 450 lbs in back of Pathfinder and no bottom out. Unloaded still rides soft.

These work fantastic! It made all the difference when towing my camper. They are a bit tough to get in (understandingly because they must be a strong and thick material) but just keep at it and it will be well worth it. It helped level my back end. I highly recommend. I have a telluride and the camper has a 400lb tounge weight

Review from a similar AirLift 1000 in Vehicle Suspension


Easy to install in my 2012 Toyoda Sienna AWD. The air hose supplied was barely just long enough to reach the rear, where a custom made mount is required for the Schrader valves. I used 2 valves, rather than the "T" for for 1 valve, so each air bag would retain separate air pressure for better anti-sway support when cornering. Rear end squat is minimal with my 450 lb motorcycle mounted on a hitch rack and added load inside. The ride is noticeably flatter through corners, especially after lifting the van 2" higher for much better 8" clearance for well worn dirt double-track roads.
