Firestone Coil-Rite Air Spring Basics

Firestone Coil-Rite springs fit inside your existing rear coil springs to maximize the effectiveness of your suspension system. The added cushion provided by the air springs allows your vehicle to better handle a heavy load or trailer. Hauling heavy loads or towing a heavy trailer can make the rear of your vehicle sag and the front end rise. This puts more strain on your rear axle and reduces contact between your front tires and the road, causing problems with braking, steering control and traction. By adding air springs to your rear suspension, you can help to level your vehicle for more effective braking and handling under heavy loading or when you encounter adverse road conditions. The air springs also help to level your headlight beams and reduce wear on your tires.

Adjustable Air Pressure

The air pressure in your Coil-Rite springs can be adjusted manually, side to side, to compensate for off-center loads. A centered load improves the stability of your vehicle by reducing body roll. The air springs will also help to absorb road shock and soften contact between your axle and frame. This prevents bottoming out, thus improving ride comfort. Route the air line tubing for the springs to your vehicle's bumper to provide easy access to the manual inflation valves.


Firestone Coil-Rite air spring components

Air Spring Construction

Coil-Rite springs are constructed of durable, elastic polyurethane to ensure years of service. Single replacement springs (sold separately) are available for maintenance to an existing Coil-Rite kit.


Air Spring Installation

The Coil-Rite springs install inside your existing coil springs. The custom-fit springs attach to your vehicle's spring seats.

Video Transcript for Firestone Coil-Rite Air Helper Springs Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Firestone coil rite line of air helper springs. Be sure to see eTrailer's fit guide for your application.Our springs are designed for a wide variety of vehicles. They're going to fit most passenger vehicles, vans, some light duty pickup trucks and motor homes. Whenever you haul a heavy load, have a lot of equipment in your vehicle or have a heavy trailer hooked up to it, it's going to cause the back end to sag down which is putting a lot of strain on your rear suspension, not to mention you're taking the contact off the front tires and misalignment your headlights. Our coil rite springs are going to take a lot of that effect out and help the sag in the rear end.Your air springs may look a little bit different than we have here, so you want to make sure you check each other's fit guide for your specific application, but these are going to provide us a smoother ride for vehicles that have coil springs in the back. They're designed to fit inside the spring, which is going to create a variable spring rate and help prevent the sag when we're loaded down and take stress off the rear suspension.

Our springs are going to be made out of a polyurethane, so they're going to be durable and last a long time. They are rated for working in temperatures from negative 40 degrees Fahrenheit all the way up to 180 degrees Fahrenheit. Each set is designed to support 500 to 1000 pounds and having an operating range of five PSI all the way up to 35 PSI.One thing I do want to mention is that our coil rite springs are not going to increase the payload of our vehicle. They're just there to help support the extra weight. So you always want to double check your vehicle's owner's manual and never exceed the manufacturer's recommended weight.Compared to other style of EHRs springs these are specifically made for the coil spring suspension, opposed to the leaf spring where that would sit on top.

These are gonna help out a lot with the SAG and prevent bottoming out and give us a smoother ride even when we're unloaded.Our kit's gonna come with two manual inflation valves. That way the bags can work independently from each other so we can inflate each one to our desired amount. That's going to help a lot with those off center loads, or if we take an evasive maneuver, it's going to take out some of that body roll. Our helper spring kits is going to come with everything you need to get it installed. Both springs, any brackets necessary, the lines, and the inflation valves.Ryan wrote in saying the install was easy on his 2014 FJ cruiser.

A year later he wrote back in and saying after a year of regular use, the bags had been great. They keep as FJ level where he's towing, and as a result, the steering while towing is vastly better.If you've had the back end of your vehicle sag down, rough ride, uneven tire wear, or even misaligned headlights our coil rite springs are going to help out a lot. All while giving us a smoother ride.

Good product with a relative ease of installation with the right tools. Only improvement would be to add a Tee in to the air line so there is only one needle valve for adding air in to the system. 249275

Very happy with this product. Easy installation. Air bags do not effect day to day driving even at max pressure since they are not as tall as the Spring it is inside, but are very effective once the weight has been added to make for safer handling. 249274

Leveled out my Yukon. Good for long hauls. Keep pressure. I check them before every haul and have not had to add air. I deflated them down to 10 psi over the winter since I only use my truck to tow a camper. The ride was similar to the original but with less body roll. They are well worth the money and take little effort to install. I would recommend coupling these with a higher load rated tire as well. I put on some Kumho AT's that were a bit grippy and load range E. It rides like a 3/4 truck when I have everything inflated and like my wife's luxury SUV again when I let some of the air out. Great combination. 288676

I installed these on my 2014 Cadillac Escalade ESV. I pull a 29’ enclosed snowmobile trailer with a 7,000# rating. These help tremendously with sag and sway and make life safer and easier when trailering, particularly when dealing with a crosswind. Installation is a little bit of a knuckle-buster but can be done easily at home. 570838

The air bagsy fit nicely into the coil springs so there are really no modifications needed to install them. The exhaust shields are easily shaped to fit onto the tail pipe where it wraps over the axle. The only hic- up I had was the installation instructions did not include a diagram of the hose routing for my vehicle, which tells you to mount the bags with air line out the top or out the bottom. I found there was more room out the top and a shorter route for the air lines to be ran. 63562


Comments

Tim, Firestone does not include instructions on howwhere to run the lines as so many people want or need to locate them differently, even on the same vehicle.Some like the fittings mounted through the bumper for easy access, others like them hidden underneath, and others still need to run them forward to a remotely controlled air compressor under the vehicle.

Having had them on for a year now...Excellent! I was skeptical because of the cheap price as I am used to the higher quality rubber/metal frame units but they have done the light duty job I bought them for. Installation was challenging in order to squeeze them through the coils but it is do-able. I mounted these inside of a 2000 Tahoe. I mounted the bags with the air line to the top and ziptied the lines along the wiring conduit. Valves were installed in the rear bumper next to the plate which is perfect because at night time they are illuminated by the plate lights. I run 20lbs at all times. One thing I would recommend is buying an airline T and using only one air line for fill/deflate. Two is a pain. I used to have one on my old set up and it was far easier. The T collects both lines behind the bumper. Enjoy. 224920

The directions are set up to cover a wide variety of vehicles. There are pages inserted for adjustments to the instructions for a smaller group of vehicles closely related to mine. I still found them confusing and not very clear. Once I got past trying to do exactly what the instructions (or at least the pictures) were saying, I was able to just look at my setup and install the air springs. The picture for the inserted heat shield instructions was the most confusing because it shows the air hose on the top but for my Avalanche (and I believe most late GM SUVs) the air hose is on the bottom. On the positive side the product appears to be of strong construction for the springs, hose, and the fittings. I'm confident it will greatly improve my Avalanche's ability to tow my trailer safely 61590

I received my order and installed the Air Helper Springs the next day. I had the opportunity to fully test them yesterday. They were not difficult to install and the instructions were easy to follow. I do wish there had been a video for my particular vehicle since I’m not exactly sure my routing of the air line around the exhaust the best location. Time will tell. After hooking up my trailer I adjusted the air, best I could, since all my tire gauges start at 10 lbs and go up from there. I did get the rear of the Pathfinder as level as I could. A recommendation from etrailer on a good digital or analog gauge would have also been helpful. I did pick up a digital gauge today, works great. Thanks etrailer for a great products, instructions and your follow up email that answered my questions, 513109


Comments

Excellent! I use it when I tow my equipment trailer and I haven’t had “any” problems. I did alter the hose configuration to a single point of air input instead of a valve for each bag. I know their reasoning but single input works better for me.

Great product, I have it on my 2003 Silverado to level the truck out while towing my 5th wheel. I only gave 4 stars because I think it should come with a "T" fitting so both bags could be filled at the same time with an equal amount of air. 449007

Review from a similar Firestone Coil-Rite in Vehicle Suspension


Okay, first of all. I have had this type of air spring helper bag before on several vehicles so I'm fairly familiar with how they are setup and work. Ordered this kit, good pricing, fairly fast ship..... And then the fun began. I did watch a video on the install. Looked pretty straight forward but with these latest polyurethane bags it looked like it would be a challenge to just "push" these through the springs AND get your hands in there to connect them. Oh, well I gave it a shot and sure enough one of the brass L shaped fittings for the bag just snapped off in my hand! Etrailer did address this and sent me new lines. And I'll be honest here.... threw everything back in the box and let it set for another month. Okay, let's do it again, MY WAY, this time. I dropped the rear coils completely this time, easily fed in the bags with the lines PREATTACHED, put the coils back in place and finished up the rest of the install. It's up to you....but I think just dropping the coils completely takes less time and you'll end up with a neater install. Oh, and here's the best part....these things are awesome on these long wheelbase Hyundai Santa Fe's. These SUVs don't have enough springing in the back to begin with. If you pull a trailer or hall a lot of tools, etc., in the back, trust me, you will see "extra" tire wear because that rear suspension will be sitting on the snubbers a great deal of the time. By going from around 10 to 30 psi I have a great deal of control over both ride height and improved stability in tow and heavy haul situations. I would recommend them, just take your time on the install..... 287475

I installed Firestone Coil-Rite Air Helper Springs and they work great. With minimum air pressure they improved the unloaded ride and driveability. Loaded the van for vacation, added air pressure to bring the ride height back to the normal ride level and the van drove and handled better than when it was new. Followed your on-line installation video and installation was a breeze. The installation instructions with the kit were poor and incomplete. . 139788

I purchased this product on the recommendation of a service writer from my local VW dealership. I carry a lot of tools and equipment in me Jetta Sportwagen for work. Shipping was super quick and follow up was excellent. I just installed the air bags yesterday with a friend. Very easy to install. One helpful suggestion, after the first attempt to stuff the deflated air bags in the spring we found it too flat and hard to get in. I suggested squeezing the top end round like an eggroll and putting a cable tie around it to hold it and then getting the remaining air out. It goes it much easier and no need to remove the bottom shock mount. Huge difference on the ride home! Ride height back to level with 350 lbs of equipment in the back. I highly recommend this product. 231481

I must say the product was sold a great price, and delivered quickly. It installed easily following the directions and performed as expected. It handled the extra load on the 2012 Sante Fe and kept the ride smooth and level on our 1,200 mile rides. I do question the installation instruction as to the length of the stub tube under the elbow (at the top of the air bag). Installed it appeared the elbow was bent over at a very sharp angle and I fear a kink developing in the tube (though there is no problem to date and perhaps the little extra length prevents the kinking ?). They have been installed around 5 months now and have around 8,ooo miles on them. I have delt with e trailer before and will again....HIGHLY recommended 78713

The Santa Fe 2007-2009 has WAY to soft a rear suspension. In the UK they even have an OEM self leveling kit! But on in NA...So I bought the F4170 kit.Had it installed by a pro in June 2012.The mechanic last year did not trust the tubes or the connections. Felt like it was toys stuff. Not meant for 35lbs of pressure, not automotive grade.But it worked!What a different that made! It was great, my car behaved great even when fully loaded. It was an awesome solution, it proves the SF has a weak suspension, even though they say we it can loaded with 1100lb of gear. It was perfect, until the following spring. When I got to inflate them a year after installation, there was a leak. In both of them!! I lifted the car to check and one was totally torn open. There is a disc on top to protect the balloon, but it seems too small. Theres nothing to hold it centered, and thats probably what happened: it moved, got off center, and it could not protect the balloon from the jounce holder.For the other one, like mentioned above, the connections a weak. The mechanics calls them quick connect. Well you get the quality of a connection done quickly: not strong enough.Technically I am still under the 1 year warranty, well see. But if it was to do all over again, I probably would not choose that. Looks like I will have to repeat that every year... The thing dont last.

Firestone prefers to handle warranty claims directly, so please give them a call. Remember that these bags do have a minimum air pressure. Firestone specs them at an operating range of 5-35PSI. If they drop below 5PSI there is risk that the bags will not hold their shape and pressure and be prone to damage because they are inside of a moving coil spring.

Made another trip to Florida since installed..LOADED..... and the airbags performed very well. Level vehicle and no real noticeable harshness in the ride. Im a happy guy.We load the car, put kayaks on the roof and put about 350 lbs in a receiver hitch style carrier and the car is level and rides nice. I have nothing negative to say. Oh, I run 45 PSI loaded like this and it works great.

Excellent product. Installed on a 2012 2x4 Nissan Pathfinder to stiffen rear end. We often load the vehicle with gear and a utility trailer and found it tends to squat a bit; the air bags solved that problem. Easy to install, but the instructions included with the units are incomplete as they omit inserting the support plates. However, the installation video on the etrailer website covers this and should be viewed. I was able to do the installation with the vehicle on the ground and without removing the wheels. I dropped the spare tire and jacked up one side at a time just to where the tire was almost off the ground, placed jack stands and worked from under the car. You really need to be able to put a lot of pressure on the deflated units to get them inside the coil springs. I found the best tool for doing this is a ball peen hammer; using the handle to push against the bags and the head for a good grip that allows pushing real hard without damage to your hand. 316982

This is our second Ford Flex and the second one we've added these Firestone Coil-Rite rear spring assists. In the year since we had them installed we've moved using an 18' twin axle enclosed trailer packed to capacity, taken several modest trips (approx 1000 miles) and driven the Flex as a passenger car. I've had the air pressure set as high as 30 PSI when towing, and as low as 5 PSI for daily driving. They work great. They add just about 1" lift at the hitch receiver with pressure of 30 PSI and the car unloaded. With the trailer attached this works out to be just about level. When packed for a trip, I've used 10 PSI to 15 PSI depending upon what we've loaded into the back. Again, it keeps the back end from squatting and keeps the headlights aimed properly. I installed the kit using separate air valves for each side this time. I like this better than using a common filler. It seems to add a bit of "roll resistance" having each one filled separately. Our first Flex I used a common filler valve and didn't get this benefit. My only word of caution is to be careful when filling the air springs. It doesn't take a lot of air to get to the desired pressure so be careful not to over-inflate. Also, if you have a tire gauge with a "bleed down" valve, it works better than one without. Just as with filling, it doesn't take much depletion of air to drop the pressure significantly. A gauge with a bleeder allows you to draw off just a little air at a time. 334563

I'm very happy with my Firestone Coil-Rite kit for my '06 Sienna. I added a "Tee" to join the bags together and routed the schrader valve to exit inside my fuel fill door. It was a little extra work, but well worth it as it's out of the weather and sight, and I don't have to scrabble around on the ground in the slop to check / adjust the pressure. I run 15 -17 lbs when I'm not hauling a load and that seems to help with body roll, and up to 25-28 psi fully loaded. The kit does the job it was intended for, and hasn't leaked a snif of air since I installed it a year ago. Three thumbs up! 350292

Bought them for my Jeep to help with stabilizing the rear end when towing. They do the job for a little while (a day). Then they LEAK! Sent factory photos of leakage with soapy water spray bubbling from metal neck. Got a new one - SAME PROBLEM. Just sold the Jeep, but took out the airbags first. It was the only problem my Jeep had. Didn't want to have the airbags involved in the sale. Poor quality, not made to prevent failures. Difficult to prove defect to factory. Would not recommend this product. One would be better off getting another brand consisting of large, dense rubber cushion. No air to leak. 417990

Just installed the Firestone air bag system in my 2017 4Runner. After installing a 250lb aftermarket bumper the sag to the springs was just too much, I also tow a watercraft trailer so that would squash the springs even more, the simple solution is the Firestone air bag system. Install was easy. With my spare permamently out of the undercarriage I just used two existing holes to mount the valves. I think for what you get the price is a bit much, but you can look at it like the air bags will provide a service for hopefully years to come, so that is worth the price. 458968

Installation of the first air bag took me about 25 minutes, and the second one about 5 minutes. I heated the second air bag with a heat lamp to make it more flexible. I think my 2010 Prius drives better with them installed. 139888

Installation: 2007 Toyota Rav4. The installation instructions were perfectly fine. Installation is not a complicated process; it's just a struggle to get the air bag inside the coil and into its proper shape. Everything else is easy. Also, the instructions clearly stated how to remove the air hose from the air valve. Although not provided in the instructions, I removed the rear wheels for the air bag installation. While that took some weight off the coil's extension, the trade-off was easier access to the coil from the side rather than from underneath...and I did get the air bag inside the coils fine. In installing the air bags one bit of advice is consider using more fingers than tools. Once I put the blunt-ended tools down and worked it into place with my hands the install went much better. Once the air bag is inside the coil and the air plug is removed, the coil doesn't just pop into place/shape. It still needs to be worked in a spinning motion and using the soapy water from the sprayer that you'll need to check for leaks will come in very handy doing that. I tow a 1,000 pound covered trailer and have recently purchased a motorcycle hitch carrier to haul my dual-sport motorcycle. I always wanted this air bag set up for my towing, but it was the carrier that got me to pull the trigger on the Coil-Rite. Using the top of my rear wheel well as a point of measurement, the stock height was 32.75". Putting 525 pounds on the hitch receiver (motorcycle hitch carrier and motorcycle) the height dropped to 30.25" (-2.50" from stock). Pumping up the Air Bags brought the height up to 31.50" (+1.25" above the ladened height but still -1.25" below the unladened height). The specs on this product state that the Firestone Coil-Rite's load leveling capability ranges from "at least 500 pounds (at most 1,000 pound)." I was expecting the Coil-Right to level my vehicle with the 521 pound receiver tongue payload and it falls short 1.25" (or only half of the total ladened reduction in height). I'm giving the product a good rating as it was fairly inexpensive and something I could install myself...and does, in fact, help my leveling for towing. However, the spec says it should have leveled at 500 pounds and it didn't. 242614

Review from a similar Firestone Coil-Rite in Vehicle Suspension


It was tougher than the instruction stated. At 70 yrs. old I don't have the strength to get them through the coil. Problem solved, dropped the lower "A" arm and removed the coil spring, in it went. The second one only took about 15 min. With the lift and scooter on the car no longer scrapes backing out of the driveway. (8lbs.) inflation. 168679

Great product, with moderate install. I had to drill out the lower pan of the coil spring in order for the hose not to be pinched. Other than that, it went smooth and has been working great for almost a year. I would highly recommend this product. 339214

Fantastic product. Theyre on my 2011 Toyota Sequoia and still works like a charm. By increasing the suspension on my rear wheels, my stability has improved, trailer sway has been eliminated and my rear tires dont wear out on the insides. I just wish I bought these air bags years ago. Since installing 2 years ago, I have travelled approximately 5,000 km while towing with no issue. While towing I fill to 30 psi, and when not towing, I keep them just under 10 psi.

After one year of use I can say that this product performs very well. The installation video for my vehicle was very helpful. I did however find that warming the coil bag up in the oven, tie raping it into a roll and inserting from the bottom was easier than inserting through the springs. Also I would recommend that the Tee for the air lines be included in the kit. It was the only thing missing and I can not imagine an installation with out it. 439085

Overall, etrailer service and the instructional video were excellent, installation was easier than I thought, and performance has been very good. I installed these on my '07 RAV4. Quick delivery, excellent follow-up by etrailer. Having read other reviews, I was a bit apprehensive about the installation. It went much quicker and easier than I anticipated. No bruised knuckles, a few grunts, no cuss words. The video is very good and helped a lot. I jacked the car up until the wheels were off the ground, which gave a reasonable amount of room between the spring coils. The red plug popped out a few times but you could still squeeze the bag with one hand through the spring and then put the plug back in, which gave some laxity in the bag to help manipulate it. The exhaust was in the way on the right a bit but not really a big deal. I opted to install the tee fitting and routed the valve stem into the left rear, as per the video. I chose to install it in the "dimple" below the 12v plug present in my car. Be careful, though: if you put the stem in the exact center of the dimple, many tire fillers won't fit into the dimple, so install it offset to the bottom. Also, I routed the tubing through the rubber grommet (maybe 1' dia) in that space on the bottom towards the vehicle front. The bags seem pretty easy to inflate with an inexpensive 12v compressor. As for performance, they seem to do very well, cutting down some of the bounce when towing our pop-up trailer. 386041

Thanks for the follow-up: reviews at this point are much more useful than ones immediately after purchase. They’re working very well and we’re very happy with them. They do tend to squeak a bit when low on pressure and they do seem to leak a tiny amount over time but neither are a big deal. I would definitely get them again.

I found it very difficult to install this product in the coil springs of my RAV4. I did this in a cold garage during the winter and I am sure it would be easier if it were warmer. Once installed they have been trouble free after a year. I pull a pop up camper with the RAV and it took all the sag out of the back. 601219

These air bags definitely help with keeping the rear end higher than it would be (towing with a minivan, 300lb tongue weight), but as they are limited to 35psi, don't lift the rear as much as I would like. They are perfect for a full van by itself. Fairly easy install, only hard part is getting bags into coil spring. Air hose connections work very nicely. Used for 2 months and one 1000 mile towing trip so far. 20008

So far this has been every thing it was advertised to be. Install took a couple hours give or take I didn't really time it. The install went well, no busted knuckles or any thing! I forgot to order the "T" fitting so I'll have to go back and take care of that. So when you order get the "T" to avoid my error. Etrailer has been great. Deliver was timely when I made the order the Coil-Rite set I needed was on back order but as estimated by etrailer it arrived within two weeks, so no big deal there. I installed the Coil-Rite on my 2014 Toyota RAV4 to help level the body out when towing our ATV trailer. I haven't had a trailer hooked up to it yet but looking forward to it. I'm pushing the max towing capacity of the RAV so I really want to keep the breaking as solid as I can. Keeping the body level will help there. 194450

Review from a similar Firestone Coil-Rite in Vehicle Suspension


Thanks to all of the folks who shared their observations on the installation of Firestone Air Helper Springs on Toyota RAV4s. Some of their suggestions made my life much easier. The Firestone instructions, as others observed, were pretty generic and were probably not written by a person who actually installed them on a RAV4. Here are a few things that I found useful: I found that the easiest way to cram the air bags into the coil springs was to flatten them like a pancake with the top and bottom surfaces collapsed onto each other and lash them in this state with a zip tie. Compressed this way you can push them thru the gap in the coil spring in the correct orientation so that when you release the zip tie they expand into the coil spring correctly. It helps to push them thru an opening just below the center of the coil spring so that the air bag ends up slightly below center touching the bottom plastic protective disk. It is really difficult to move the air bags up or down once they expand into the coil spring. I attached the air hose after the bag was in place. You can use a heat gun to warm the air hose enough to bend it so that it exits the lower control arm, turns 90 degrees, and runs along the back of the control arm without hanging down. As others noted the exhaust system presents special problems on the right side. I ended up routing the air line toward the brake and up to the upper control arm to stay away from the exhaust pipe. It's not clear what the best strategy is for routing the air lines. They seem pretty tough, but will likely be rubbing on something given all of the movement in the suspension. I'd suggest not cutting the air line and starting with the right side, which for me needed more air line length to keep away from the exhaust system. That way you will have enough air line to finish the right side and you can use the remainder on the left side, which will need less. I cut the line in half to begin with and barely had enough for the right side. All of the bits seem to be of high quality. The quick connect air fittings seem to seal well and grab tenaciously so you will have a very hard time removing them once you install them. Like a Chinese puzzle on steroids. Our trailer has around 440lb tongue weight and these have brought us back to level with a few psi to spare. We'll see how it goes over the road. Thanks to everyone who contributed ideas and suggestions. 161229

I just installed these Firestone Air Bags on my 2011 Jetta Sportwagen. I did it myself and it was easy! Just remove the tire... The bag slides in without even removing the shock.

I installed the Firestone Coil-Rite helper springs on my 2006 Nissan Armada. The install went great, all done in about 30 minutes. My Armada used to sag 3 inches when my travel trailer (5,000 lbs) and 500 lb tongue weight before these were installed. Now with them installed it only sags 1inch and ride so much better. I did this vs a weight distribution hitch as my Travel Travel wasn't really heavy. I just drove it with 32 PSI from Atlanta to Orlando and back.. worked great no issues so far. 513441

Alvin, the ride was definitely better with the trailer hooked up after I installed the airbags. I run them at 10 psi normally and 25 with trailer hooked up. With no trailer the rear feels more planted to the road and towing it feels more stable. I still use leveling bars to help with the weight but I definitely recommend these if your going to tow. As for install its not difficult but just a pain to get them squeezed down and pushed through the springs. After that the hoses are simple push ins and just be sure to route them so they can move and away from the exhaust. Tom D.

As a former mechanic, this was a tough install. It was a struggle to get the air bags through the springs and there was not enough room to remove the 3" piece of tubing so I installed the bag with the full length of tubing already in place. I was hoping to gain about a 2" lift, but it only raises the vehicle about 3/4 of an inch. The bags do make a noticeable difference in handling and the hitch is not so close to the ground while hauling a trailer. 103341

Installed on a 2016 4Runner in conjunction with a 1-1/2" Daystar coil spring spacer. Since the coil spacer is hollow, I left one segment of the factory bump stop in place to compensate for and match the height of the spacer. I also added a Firestone T-fitting on the airline for a single inflation point and located the inflation valve next to my trailer plug wiring. Quite a pain to wrestle the coil back in place with the added height of the spacer, but that is no fault of the airbags; pry bar proved critical to wedge the coil back in place since I did not try the bottle jack between the frame and axle trick. After nearly a year, no leaks, bags hold air well. I put 25 psi in them for towing our travel trailer, or keep them at 10 psi for normal running around. I have also found them useful to prevent or at least reduce bottoming out the soft rear suspension that happens when off road driving with even just a couple hundred pounds in the back. Even at 25 psi they ride great and you wouldn't know they are back there at 10 psi. Highly recommend for the low cost and added versatility! 459855


Comments

Still working great after a year. Knock on wood... no leaks to date. I would consider these essential equipment for towing, and would highly recommend for heavily loaded backcountry travels as well. I did try them near their max pressure on one trip with 5 people, roof top tent, and gear for a week of camping this summer and it was too much and felt very unsafe ped the pressure back to sub-30 psi after driving a few blocks and all was great after that!

I installed these on my 2014 Nissan Pathfinder, which despite being rated to tow 5,000lbs, really struggled under the tongue weight of my boat trailer. These airbags really made a difference when towing and only when speeding over speedbumps do I notice them in normal conditions. My only complaint is that the valve stem points down, which once hooked to the hose, sticks down nearly two inches and was routinely getting ripped off in the snow. I finally gave up the hose and just rolled under the car to increase the pressure (which I've only done once). The kit should really come with a 90* connector, but otherwise it works great. 497497
