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.

Review from a similar Air Lift 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

Great product! The only issue I had was that I bought the kit for a stock height Jeep and they were a little short for my lifted coils. Still stiffened the rear and eliminated the sag even with the fitment issues. I would recommend these for anyone with coil springs wanting to tow or haul anything heavy. 630876

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.

Review from a similar Air Lift AirLift 1000 in Vehicle Suspension


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

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

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

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

Comments

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.

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

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

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

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

Great product. I have a 1/2 ton Yukon pulling a 23 foot toy hauler. Without the bags it would squat the truck 4-5 inches. With the bags it only squats 2 inches. The control of the vehicle is much better. A cheap product for the added ride, and safety it provides. 522880

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

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. I haven't got a chance to road test but I have confidence in the product from my measurement test! 304683

Fit well, but not that easy to install without a lift (was able to use a friend's) to access and spread the coil springs apart, insert the bags, route the tubing and secure the tubing clamps. Cable ties too short for securing to some locations, so have some long (over 10") ties available. Went with single fill valve and had no problems with leveling. Plan well ahead before cutting the tubing, because there is little to spare (not enough for separate fill valves on a Toyota Sequoia). Well worth the price - made a huge difference when towing a heavy load or with a near maximum tongue weight. 250038


Comments

Continues to perform well, no problems, but you do need to pay attention to minimum air pressure with change of seasons. Well worth the price, especially with heavy tongue weight on trailer and rear of vehicle packed to the max, like with 5 five gallon water jugs plus other equipment for a remote camping trip.

Customer Service, great! I called 4:45 PM and needed the airbags the next day. I paid for overnight shipping and had them by 2:00 PM the next day. Product, great! I can't comment on installation because I had mechanic install. But two days later, I drove 2,000 miles with six adults and the 2010 Grand Caravan drove better than brand new. I recommend 30 PSI for a full load, 15 for empty van. 131673

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

Great product. Instalation of airlines over nipples is tight. I used a heat gun to slightly soften the tubing and that made instalation much easier. I highly recomend if doing any towing or hauling heavy items in back of a van or passenger car. 424960

Air bags are still working great. They make a huge improvement in handling when I am towing my little trailer or weighted down with luggage. They do bleed off over a few months time but it really is a non issue.

This product is an excellent value. I installed on my 2013 Toyota Sienna FWD in a couple of hours, using the instructional video as a reference. When I filled up the bags to 30 PSI and hitched up my pop-up trailer, there was no noticeable sag in the rear suspension. I have yet to take the rig out on a long trip, but first impressions are very good. 208150

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

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

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

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


Comments

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.

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

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.

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

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

Review from a similar Air Lift 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

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

First thing, Sorry if the photos are sideways! I took a couple of pics of the air bags because on the site it looks as if they are too skinny to work but NO they are the right size for your P30 Chevy Motorhome. The price was right for the complete kit as shown in the photo with the lines, bags, shields and other little bits for mounting the lines on the frame. For install, there is a set of directions and an a informational packet for those other items you may want to monitor and maintain you air bags if you so desire. The instructions are pretty good but I'll tell you that hole on the control arm at the bottom ain't that big! I put the bags in hot water to soften them up before trying the rolling and tying part and it helped. Be prepared to spend about 2 hours total to get this done but as far as being complicated, it's not. I didn't have to jack up my RV to do this either. Front suspension will now have the added support it came with back in 1987. Glad to have found this kit vs. the Firestone one that is basically the same for more $$ and many times is not in stock. Can't wait for the first trip! 376233

I originally bought the Air Lift 1000 to prevent my 2011 Pathfinder from sagging when I pull my 4,500lbs boat. So far so good, the sag is gone. Other benefits are a firmer ride and less roll on the turns. If I posted the pics correctly you can see I ran each bag independently and I was able to mount each Schrader Valve on my 7 pin wire harness. This is a very easy DIY project. I suggest taking off the wheels and placing the bags in the springs from outside the vehicle rather then from underneath. 78302

Troy.. did you wire up your 7 pin connector yourself? Looking at doing my 2011 with the Nissan harness at the hitch end and the controller end.Thanks.. Ken

I did the 7 pin myself. It was just plug and play. Not hard at all. Im not 100 sure if all 7 pins work because my trailer only requires 5 pins amd so far it has worked flawlessly. Hope this helps.

Review from a similar Air Lift AirLift 1000 in Vehicle Suspension


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

Review from a similar Air Lift AirLift 1000 in Vehicle Suspension


I first realized that I needed some help leveling my 2006 Yukon XL right after I hooked my 2 place trailer to the vechile. My previous Yukon had self leveling rear shocks, the 2006 did not come w/ that option. I mounted the compressor on the top of the passenger side wheel well, (there is plenty of room there, & away from engine heat) I mounted the pump & dump switchs , & the pressure gage on a piece of kydex that I cut to fit in the little cubby that is below the heat/ac controls. The hardest part was getting the lift "bags" into the coil spring tower, time & patience. The install looks factory, & works great to level the vechile while towing. Great product! 477025

I've had this product installed on my 2011 Sienna, and it has worked great at keeping my headlights where they belong on the road. I keep about 10# of air in them and they don't affect the ride at all. ANd they keep the back end from sinking when i hook up my boat. 426756

Every thing is working just great. I purchased these items so that I could tow my boat with my Sienna van. All the items fit perfectly and are preforming as I had hoped. Thanks

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

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!

Review from a similar Air Lift AirLift 1000 in Vehicle Suspension


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

Review from a similar Air Lift AirLift 1000 in Vehicle Suspension


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

Put these on our '97 G. Cherokee because it squats easily with any load at all. I followed what little install instructions that were provided carefully and Googled for more tips from others. I opened the hole up where the air line enters the c. spring and added rubber grommets for protection. I never hauled any near the 1000# rating. I never exceeded 25psi and check the psi daily for a couple weeks. All seemed well until for about a month and then the lines began to leak. I cut them back and added better clamps but they still leak........ Bottom line is that this product is not worth the $$$ or the effort of installing/fixing for what you'll get out of it. 332722

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

Review from a similar Air Lift AirLift 1000 in Vehicle Suspension


Installation was a bear. Instructions depending where you get them from are mixed. Factory instructions on the web as a video shows not removing the springs and stuffing the bags through the springs. Instructions from e trailer and on paper supplied says to remove the springs and shocks and anti sway bar. I did not have to remove the shocks but did lower one side of the anti sway bar. My first attempt was to remove the spring approach which was not a good Idea unless you have a spring compression tool which I did not. This was a night mare. The other side I pushed the air bag through the spring much easier although still tough managing the bag in position and getting the air line to the bottom of the bag was challenging. I started around 8 am and finished late afternoon. Had to make a special trip to town (50 miles round trip) to find nuts to secure the air fitting as they were missing in the parts bag. Nuts are 5/16 35 thread. Never herd of such an odd thread. Had to pay over $4 for four nuts. Have not driven with the new bags yet but am hopeful based on reviews they will work just fine. My vehicle is a 2012 Toyota FJ cruiser. It was a very stressful experience but I probably save a couple hundred dollars on the self install. I am a former toolmaker/machine builder/welder. 112526

Got the airbags especially for towing a trailer 0n a 6 month trip from Arizona to Alaska, 24000 miles.The bags are still performing well.I would give 5 stars for reliability and performance.

You can use the Firestone Union Tee # F3025-1
Firestone Union Tee for 1/4" Tubing
$14.39
in place of the plastic T-fitting that AirLift Provides. We have used this several times on the installs here in our shop.
