Levels Your Load

Using a snowplow or a winch or installing a heavy grille guard on the front of your vehicle can put unneeded stress on your suspension system. This stress not only affects your brakes in a bad way, but your tires, headlight aim and handling suffer as well. If you need more front-end support, Air Lift 1000 has you covered.


The Air Lift 1000 kit will help 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 send to your air springs to maintain normal ride height - even when you are carrying a heavy front load. Simply adjust the air pressure in your air bags according to the size of your load.


Adjustable Air Springs

Air Lift 1000 adjustable air springs provide 1,000 pounds of load-leveling capacity and support. They are made specifically to fit inside your front 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.


Easy Installation

Air Lift 1000 is a breeze to install with standard tools and has an easy-to-follow instruction manual. This Air Lift system comes with manual inflation valves (1 for each spring). These are typically mounted on the bumper but can be installed anywhere on your vehicle in an easily accessible area. 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.


Satisfaction Guarantee

The Air Lift company 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 Air Lift 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.

Video Transcript for Air Lift AirLift 1000 Air Helper Springs Review

Connor: Hey guys, how's it going Connor, today, here at etrailer.com. We're going to be taking a look at the Air Lift 1000 Air Helper Springs. In order to give you a better idea of the benefits that our airbags are going to offer here for our vehicle, what we're going to do is, we're going to take some measurements. We're going to measure the stock suspension unloaded from the ground to the center of the wheel well here. Then we're going to hook up a trailer.We have a medium to small boat trailer here, which would be perfect for this Grand Cherokee that we have in particular. We're going to couple the trailer and we're going to see how much the stock suspension sags.

What we're going to do is, we're going to take that measurement and then we're going to fill the air bags that we have installed to see how much that's going to raise back to our factory suspension and our stock ride height.What we're going to go ahead and do here is measure from the ground. Keep in mind your results may vary depending on what tow vehicle you have. We're just using this as reference, a guide to show you. While our vehicle is unloaded and we're detached from the trailer, we're going to measure from the ground to the top center inside of our wheel well, 34 and a half inches. We're going to go to the front, take the same measurement.In the front, we're about right at 33 inches, so we have about an inch and a half difference.

Now we're going to go ahead and couple the trailer and retake these same measurements. From the ground to the top center of the wheel well is going to be about 33 and a half inches. Therefore, we dropped about an inch in the rear. From the ground to the top center of the wheel well again in the front, is going to be about 33 and a half inches. Overall, we went down an inch in the rear and we came up about a half an inch in the front.Offhand, these measurements may not seem like a lot to you, but you'd be surprised at what sort of effects this could have on your vehicle while you're out driving around.

Number one, our suspension in the front is obviously raised a little bit, this is going to mean a couple of different things. Number one, we're not going to have nearly as much stopping power, because we don't have as much weight on the front axle.Now in modern vehicles, say, about 60% of our stopping power is going to be on the front axle. When we take weight off that front axle, we're going to decrease our stopping power. In addition to the reduced stopping power, the raised front end is going to do a couple other things. It's going to point our headlights more towards the sky, which is going to reduce our visibility of the road and finally, last but not least, we're going to have some tire wear issues because the camber of our front tires is not correct with the weight lifted off of them.Therefore, we're going to have to replace our tires sooner because they're going to wear unevenly.

By putting more of a strain on the rear of our vehicle, our existing suspension components are going to wear out faster. We could experience a harsher ride and overall the tow vehicle won't feel as stable than it would unloaded. Now we're going to go ahead and put some air in our air springs, retake our measurements so we can show you the difference. Now we have our airbags filled, we have our trailer re-coupled, let's go ahead and take our same measurements that we took earlier.From the ground to the top inside edge of the wheel well, it looks we're about 34 and a quarter, not quite to 34 and a half inches, so we're about a quarter inch away from our factory ride height here at the rear. Let's go up to the front of the vehicle. If you remember, our factory ride height here with the trailer attached and our stock suspension was at 33 inches at the front, and we are back at 33 inches. We've actually came back to the factory ride height here at the front of the vehicle.Since we're back at the factory ride height or very close to it now, we're not going to have to worry about some of the issues we mentioned earlier about the headlight aim, the tire wear issues, or the decreased suspension longevity. Now that we've given you a visual of some of the measurements in the factory ride height, we went ahead and decreased all the air in the airbags again to the minimum five PSI pressure, and now we're going to take the vehicle on our two test courses we have at etrailer, the slalom course and the speed bump course.We're going to try to show you a representation of the ride quality when we have a load present with the airbags inflated and a load present without the airbags inflated. What we're going to do is, we have a couple of coolers in our hatch area here, not a terrible amount of weight, but enough to know it's back there. We're just taking our vehicle out on our test course now. As we can tell, without the airbags inflated, we are a little bouncy going over these speed bumps, as you would expect though.Yeah, it does feel like the vehicle is shifting around just a tiny bit side to side. Our steering isn't quite as responsive as it normally is. Now we're going to do some invasive maneuvers on our slalom course. Keep in mind it is wet here, so we are going to keep our speeds rather low. Again, we have a couple coolers in the hatch area here with our airbags deflated. Again, we can notice just a slight to slide rocking, more of a body roll if you will, while we're making these sharp turns here. I'm going to turn around, go the other way.Again, nothing real, real drastic, but we do sort of notice it a little bit, or at least I can anyhow. Yeah, a little bit of body roll, side to side. Now we go ahead, we went ahead and inflated our air springs. We put around 20 to 30 PSI in there and now we're going to leave the gear and the coolers in the back hatch here. We're going to go ahead and take our vehicle through our test course again, starting with our speed bump course.The suspension definitely feels a little bit firmer, but I don't feel as much body roll as we had the first time around. There's not as much jolting side to side. The steering is a little bit more responsive. Again, not a drastic, huge difference, but a minimal difference that we can still notice. Now let's go ahead and head on over to the slalom course and see the improvements over there. Now we're at the slalom course here. We're going to make some invasive maneuvers at speed, try to remain consistent with the speed of our initial run.I am noticing the steering's being a little bit more responsive. The weight is also not shifting around as much side to side, therefore we don't have as much body roll. These results are going to be the same whether we have heavy cargo in the rear of our hatch here or we're towing a trailer. The biggest difference I would have to say is just the weight transfer from side to side isn't severe with our airbags installed and inflated, therefore we don't have as much body roll.I would say that is probably the biggest takeaway of these Air Lift Air Springs here. Now they're going to help us do two things. They're going to help us, one, if we're towing a heavy load, number two, they're going to help us if we're hauling a heavy load. However, the stock suspension isn't necessarily designed to max out the payload or to max out our trailer weight ratings every time it's on the road, so that's where our suspension enhancements come into place.Again, they're going to do an excellent job helping to stabilize the heavy load, so we don't have that uneven, that harsh ride quality we would if we we're maxing out the factory suspension. Although there aren't any other options for this vehicle, I actually prefer airbags because the main reason is they're adjustable. What this means is, we can adjust the pressure inside the airbags, so we get the perfect level of support and comfort for any given load we may have at a time.The Air Lift Air Helper Springs can be installed in one of two ways, we can install them as a single pass system, which essentially means that we're going to have one inflation port, which is going to inflate both airbags. Now this is going to be the most common setup and what I recommend using. However, there is another option as well, called a Dual Path System Install. Essentially this means we're going to have two inflation ports, one to each of the air bags, so we can adjust the air bags.We can adjust the PSI in each airbag's different, so we have different amount of PSI and that's essentially going to be good for trailers if they're heavier on one side or we have more cargo in one side of the vehicle than the other. Our Air Lift Air Helper Springs here are going to have a 1000 pound weight capacity. However, keep in mind this isn't going to increase either the payload or the towing capacity of our Jeep.In regards to the fill rating of our airbags, this can be anywhere from five PSI, which is the minimum to 30 PSI, which is a maximum. However, again, the major feature, the major draw of airbags is that you can adjust the pressure for any given load you may have. Just make sure it never falls below five PSI or above 30 PSI. We need to keep in mind that with our air lift airbags, we are going to require access to an external air compressor in order to inflate the airbags.Now, if you're only going to be using the airbags every so often, then we can probably just suffice with finding an external air compressor, like at a gas station. However, if you find yourself to be towing or hauling heavy loads frequently, it's definitely going to benefit you to consider an onboard air compressor, like this Air Lift Wireless Bluetooth Air Compressor that we have here. This is actually going to be an excellent option for this vehicle because we don't have to run any airlines or wires into the cab, and the compressor is sized appropriately for our air springs. Now that we've showed you some of the benefits and features of our air springs here, that's going to do it today for the look at our Air Lift 1000 Air Helper Springs.

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.


Comments
So far the air bags are still holding air . It does help with keeping the rear end of my Sorento from bouncing around when pulling my camper.

2020 Ford Explorer install. These are well made in the USA. Being robustly made, they do not fold into a "hot dog bun" shape as indicated in the instructions. The Hulk might but I could not. I was able to get them into a "horizontal stomped beer can" shape which I made work. It took about an hour for the first one and less for the second one. I used a plastic dead blow handle to assist since the hammer end allowed for a good handle as I pushed with the actual handle. I have dual exhausts so I routed up through the body rails above the mufflers. I found holes in the A-arm, just rear of the middle hole, that allowed for the air line to be routed back and up. I didn't go forward as the directions illustrated since I would it would not help my situation. Product - A+ Easy of Install - B-

Works great during the two times I actually used them. Dont inflate too much or youll hear squeaking sounds that will drive you insane.

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

They work great. I’ve used them to align my boat, a utility trailer and the wheelchair carrier for my wife. Has improved the ride and gas mileage by making the combinations more aero Dynamic. I would purchase again and recommend them to others

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.

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


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!

Review from a similar AirLift 1000 in Vehicle Suspension


Easy install and it really firmed up the suspension on my Palisade! It only took a couple hours to install. I found it easier to leave the bag uncapped and push it through the coil spring with a twisting motion. It kinda just popped into place. If I followed the instructions and flattened the bag it became rigid and difficult to work with. Otherwise routing the tubing and connecting everything was straight forward.

Review from a similar AirLift 1000 in Vehicle Suspension


Product installed easily on my Toyota Sienna AWD and inflated correctly with no leakage. I ended up using two loom clamps and self-tapping screws that I purchased at [local] Hardware store. Had hoped to use only wire ties, but realized that loom clamps make for a much more secure installation. The ride is much stiffer at 35psi especially since the van is empty at the moment. Still need to experiment around with pressures that are ideal for an empty van and one filled with passengers and gear.


Comments
I suggest lowering your 2015 Sienna air springs to 5 psi for a smoother ride when you are not towing or loaded up. When you are loaded, inflate to 30 psi.
-- Etrailer Expert Sierra K - 11/02/2021
This Air Lift kit has been working well for me. No leakage at all. I have taken many road trips to local National Forests and just got back from a 4500 mile trip to the Badlands. I have found that keeping it at 10 psi is just about right for my driving style. This kit is the way to go to level out your ride when you are carrying a lot of payload.

This item is amazing! We tow a large 24ft trailer with lots of weight and our truck weighing down and the trailer would drag on hills. This was cheap and excellent options to raise the vehicle. Highlights recommend.

Great - would highly recommend this for anyone whose trailering something that weighs down your back end. 2nd purchase of this item for two different trucks and am extremely happy with it. 1st we had this professionally installed and 2nd we were able to install ourselves with YouTube help. No need to remove springs!

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.

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.

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


I needed a little more clearance for my rear cargo carrier. This keeps it from draging when it is heavily loaded (such as an electric wheelchair). My son installed the air lifters with no trouble. He was able to run the air line up though the rear finder to my gas fillup so that it could not be seen until you opened the gas fill door. The ride is a little rougher, but they have held up well over the past year.

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


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.


Comments
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.
