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.

Video Transcript for Air Lift Vehicle Suspension - Rear Axle Suspension Enhancement - AL60769 Review

Speaker 1: Today we're taking a look at the Airlift 1000 air helper springs for coil springs. These are designed for the rear axle. Now this kit works on a lot of different vehicles. So to ensure that this is a fit for your vehicle, you can use the vehicle fit guide located at etrailer.com. This unit provides your vehicle with up to 1,000 pounds of load level and support, reducing strain on your rear suspension and improving both safety and ride quality.These are designed to support your existing rear coil spring suspension when you're hauling or towing in it. Really helps keep your vehicle level when you're hauling a heavier load.

It improves steering and braking performance. And it's going to help maintain that safe headlight aim, so if sometimes when you're towing or hauling a heavier load the rear of your vehicle can squat and the front of the vehicle goes up, which throws off the headlight aim.The unit also really helps keep your tires from wearing unevenly. Also, increases overall braking performance. Now with this installed, you're actually going to be able to manually adjust the air pressure to get even load distribution and support that you need. So, you can level front to back and you can inflate each air spring independently for side to side leveling, which is great for off center loads.

With this installed, it also reduces the strain on your OEM suspension caused by extremely heavy loads and it improves overall stability and ride quality.One of the neat advantages of this system, is that it's known to really help diminish sway and absorb road shock for a smooth ride. When it comes to the construction, it's a durable molded polyurethane. It's red in color. They can be compressed, that way they can easily install inside your vehicle's rear coil spring suspension system. It includes two air springs, all the necessary hardware that you need: air line tubing, protector plates, clamps, and shields.

Also, it comes with your inflation valves for manual inflation. The product's made in the USA. Detailed installation instructions are included, again along with everything you need for your installation.When it comes to the load leveling capacity, it's up to 1,000 pounds. Just keep in mind that the Airlift 1000 springs don't actually increase your vehicle's weight carrying capacity. So be careful not to exceed the manufacturers recommended weight limit.

And when it comes to the air pressure, it is adjustable. You need to make sure that you always have at least five psi in the springs and no more than 35 psi. That's going to do it for today's look at the Airlift 1000 air helper springs for coil springs for the rear axle.

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

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

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 had a similar AirLift system installed on a Trailblazer close to 10 years ago, and that system is still functional. I bought this part number to install on a Suburban a year ago. It was a little challenging to fit the air bags into the coil springs, but it worked. The installation was very clean installing the Schrader valve behind the gas cap door. The system made a big improvement on leveling the Suburban towing with 600-800 lbs tongue weight. 254655

To be completely honest I was not too happy with the AirLift 1000. After installation I used them for one trip with a load and one side burst on the highway. Having said this I wasn't satisfied with how they worked. I never claimed any warranty or contacted anyone because I really didn't have the time to reach out to anyone. I was looking for the pictures that I took back in March/April of 2016 but I have been unable to locate them. If I do locate them I will send them to you. Please note I have discarded the bags but what I can tell you is the one that burst was split at the seam and the pressure was per the manual. 382399

Quick delivery, and exactly what I expected. The only tip I can offer - my installation had the air connection oriented on the top. The first bag I installed the bag and then connected the air line. Feeding the air line down through the coil spring and attaching to the air bag, and then feeding the air bag (collapsed, and held by zip ties) into the spring was much easier. The bags took the slight wallowing out of my Avalanche when pulling my enclosed 2-place sled trailer down the road! The best bang for the buck I've found for my truck yet. 257622

2004 Chevy Suburban Z71

I installed these on my 2004 Burb Z71. It was much easier than I had thought it would be. After jacking it up, putting it on stands and lowering the axle back down, there was a huge gap in the springs for the air bags to pass through. The hardest part was attaching the air hose to the top of the bags after they were inside of the spring. The package included a heat shield for the exhaust pipe which I quickly threw away. There is a good 5 inches between the pipe and the spring. Routing the air hose back to the bumper was easy and I located the air valve in the plate that has the trailer wire hookups. I hope they work as advertised, I hate the back of my Burb sagging when I poll my camper. 50542

Review from a similar Air Lift AirLift 1000 in Vehicle Suspension


My 2008 Nissan Quest was almost bottoming out the rear suspension when my #2300 pop-up camper was attached. These air springs solved my problem but don't seem to be a perfect fit for the inside of the springs as they don't vertically fill the cavity enough with the included spacers. They only partially correct the sag in the rear suspension. They do add enough spring rate soak up the bumps under load. I am on my second season with them now and they still hold pressure and give a confident ride. In summary, great product with only a marginal fit for my vehicle. Definitely gets the intended job done as advertised. 525820


Comments

Update 2 years later: We just traded in the van with the air springs in perfect working order. My new tow vehicle has coil over strut rear suspension so another set of air bags is not an option. I didn’t truly appreciate what a fantastic product this is until it was taken away as an option. Now I’m faced with spending more money for a product that doesn’t work as well if I need to correct my rear suspension again.

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.

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


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

Review from a similar Air Lift 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

Review from a similar Air Lift AirLift 1000 in Vehicle Suspension


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

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

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.

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

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

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.

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

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 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

It was as advertised. I particularly like the detailed instructions that clearly covered the installation. Pictures in the diagrams were clear and appropriate. The product is to be used to maintain a level ride without rear end sagging of my van. This will eliminate headlight misalighnment from luggage during family trips. 297983

Review from a similar Air Lift 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 Air Lift AirLift 1000 in Vehicle Suspension


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

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

Review from a similar Air Lift AirLift 1000 in Vehicle Suspension


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

Review from a similar Air Lift AirLift 1000 in Vehicle Suspension


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

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

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

Review from a similar Air Lift AirLift 1000 in Vehicle Suspension


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

  • Recommended Rear Axle Suspension Enhancement to Reduce Sway in 2004 Suburban 1500
  • For your 2004 Suburban 1500 we offer several types of rear-axle suspension enhancement kits including air springs, jounce spring and helper leaf springs. All of these appear on the linked page. Just click on your drivetrain, 2WD or 4WD, to see the kits that will fit your 1500. For a 2WD or 4WD with rear coil springs I suggest the AirLift air bag kit # AL60769 because it is moderate in cost and yet it gives you up to 1000-lbs of load support for your towing tongue weight and also the...

  • AirLift Air Helper Springs Vs Timbren Enhancement System for a 2004 Cadillac Escalade
  • The Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement System part # TGMRG25C can be installed in conjunction with the AirLift 1000 Air Helper Springs for Coil Springs part # AL60769 but I do not recommend it. Installing both the Timbren's and AirlIft bags would create an extremely stiff suspension which would be rather bouncy and uncomfortable. Instead, I would stick with the AirLift bags as long as the tongue weight of your trailer does not exceed 1,000 lbs. If the tongue weight of your trailer does...

  • 2005 GMC Yukon Sags When Towing, Even When Using Weight Distribution
  • Let's begin with the basics. In order for a weight distribution system to work correctly, the existing vehicle suspension needs to be in good condition. Then, you'll need to ensure you have the correct system for the tongue weight of your trailer. To choose a weight distribution system, you'll need to first determine the fully loaded and ready to tow tongue weight of your trailer. To that figure, add the weight of any gear stowed in the cargo area of the SUV or truck bed behind the rear...

  • Suspension Enhancement for 2007 Chevy Avalanche with OEM Auto-Leveling Suspension
  • According to Air Lift, the # AL60769 is not compatible with vehicles equipped with the OEM auto-leveling suspension, i.e, factory air shocks and would therefore not work on your Avalanche. A Timbren system, like part # TGMRYS4 would be compatible with the auto-level system. The advantage of a Timbren system is that is is passive, and will not come into play unless the bed of your Avalanche is loaded. As more weight is added, the springs become stronger and more resistant. Keep in mind...

You are also correct that this is the rated maximum pressure for your specific application in a 2001 Chevrolet Tahoe. The bags themselves can handle a much higher pressure without failure. I confirmed this with my technical contact at AirLift. The reason you're advised to test at the maximum for your vehicle is to best confirm there are no leaks...

  • Adding Rear Helper Springs to a 2001 GMC Yukon XL with Auto-Leveling Shocks
  • I do have a solution for you but there are no air bag systems that work on the 2001 GMC Yukon XL with the auto-leveling feature. What you can do is use some Timbren springs which will engage only if they need to (if the vehicle sags enough). With the auto-leveling system and the weight distribution adding the Timbren springs will make the rig very solid. If you have a 1500 4x4 use # TGMRG25C If you have a 1500 2-wheel drive use # TGMRYS4 If you have a 2500 4x4 use # TGMRSB4S And if...

  • Adding a set of Air Lift rear-axle air springs # AL60769, or any other rear-axle suspension helper kit, to your 2005 GMC Yukon will not increase the vehicle's tow rating. That will remain at the capacity determined by GMC based on the specific complement of engine, transmission and differential.

  • Suspension Enhancement Recommendation for 2015 GMC Yukon XL
  • A properly setup weight distribution system shouldn't need additional suspension support, but you can still install suspension enhancement on a vehicle that's using a WD system. For what you are looking I would go with an air bag kit as that will allow you fine tune the amount of support you need. The part # AL60769 is a confirmed fit for your 2015 GMC Yukon XL and would work well. You will need to inflate the bags first and then set the WD system up accordingly.

  • Weight Distribution System Recommendation Sagging Rear Suspension of a 2008 GMC Yukon XL

Suspension enhancement will give the rear suspension more support when towing, but a weight distribution system is actually the better solution. Not only will it give your rear suspension more support but it will also distribute the tongue weight of the trailer partially up to the front axle so that handling and braking will get improved. The best way to pick out a weight distribution system is to base it off of the loaded...

  • Weight Distribution System Recommendation for a 2012 Chevy Suburban 1500 2WD
  • You would be better off with a weight distribution system than suspension enhancement. Suspension enhancement like an air bag kit would help your tow vehicle sit more level while being towed, but the air bags would actually act as a fulcrum point which would lighten the front axle and affect braking and handling. A weight distribution system actually will take some of the tongue weight of the trailer and transfer it to the front axle of the trailer. This will help you tow level as well...

  • Will the Air Lift AirLift 1000 Air Helper Springs for Coil Springs Part # AL60769 Raise the Vehicle
  • The Air Lift AirLift 1000 Air Helper Springs for Coil Springs part # AL60769 will not raise the vehicle when filled to the lowest air pressure rating of 5 psi or when filled to the max air pressure rating of 100 psi. These coil spring airbags will stiffen the rear suspension when filled, not raise it. I recommend keeping the airbags at a minimum of 5 psi as this will ensure the airbags do not become damaged or deformed. In regards to the suspension components you installed, the shocks...

The Coil Sumo Spring, unlike the AirLift # AL60769 that you referenced, will not have to be adjusted or monitored. I have attached the installation directions, but, basically, they simply fit within your existing coil springs and secures with zip ties.
