Heavy loads can cause the back of your Honda Odyssey 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 Honda Odyssey'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 Honda Odyssey 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 Honda Odyssey 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 Honda Odyssey at normal ride height. You can find the normal ride height of your Honda Odyssey 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 Honda Odyssey and return them for a full product refund.

Video Transcript for Air Lift AirLift 1000 Air Helper Springs Installation - 2011 Honda Odyssey

Today on our 2011 Honda Odyssey, we're going to be installing the Air Lift 1000 Air Helper Springs for the Rear Coil Springs, part number AL60815. Now let's go ahead and take our measurement before we put any weight in the vehicle and with the stock suspension. We're measuring from the ground to the bottom of the wheel well or just under 30 inches. Now we'll go ahead and take it out for a quick test drive and show you how the vehicle reacts. Now you'll notice how much body roll or lean the vehicle has when you make evasive turns, either to the right or to the left. Now with our airbags installed and the 300 lbs. in the cargo area, we have the same ride height as we did before we had any weight in the vehicle with the manufacturer suspension. We're just under 30 inches from the ground to the bottom of the wheel well.

Now we'll go ahead and take it out again on our test course now that we've installed the airbags. Again, we've got 300 lbs. approximately in the cargo area and you'll notice the difference how much more the handling has improved and how much less body roll is in the vehicle. Now let's go ahead with our install. Now we're going to begin by supporting the vehicle on a set of jack stands so that the rear wheels are off the ground. Next, we'll go ahead and remove the wheel, we're going to go ahead and start over here on the passenger side.

Next, we'll go ahead and take our floor jack and go underneath the lower control arm just below this outer bolt here. Go ahead and put just a little bit of tension on it as we're going to need to remove the bolt that's just above the jack right there in order to remove the coil spring. Next, we're going to slowly lower down our floor jack so that it releases the tension off of the coil spring. Next, we're going to need to push down on the control arm in order to remove our coil spring. Now it is index so it's in there in a certain position and you want to make sure that you put it back in in the same position. Take note of exactly how its sitting in there, as well as you dont know want to flip it over or put it in upside down when you put it back together. You want to put it back in exactly how you removed it. You see that there's a rubber fitting that goes on top, as well as there's a fitting down here on the bottom where a rubber bushing that goes down here on the bottom.

We'll go ahead and set our coil spring inside for now and we're going to need to unbolt a bump stop in the bracket here. Now the bolt that we'll be removing is actually in the center up to the center of this and we'll be using a 14mm socket and a ratchet to get up into it, so that's what we'll be removing and not reinstalling. Now we've gone ahead and cut the template out that comes with the instructions, as well as the center section. Instead of actually taping it to the top side of our control arm, I've opened up the hole here and we're just going to put a paint mark right there and then drill our hole through that. We'll go ahead and get it centered on there with this hole facing towards the inside of the vehicle. Go ahead and put our mark there. Next, we're going to go ahead and take a pilot bit, drill a pilot hole through the marking.

Now we found it easy is to just go ahead and take a three quarter inch hole saw to open up the hole to a specified size. We'll go ahead and take a pair of tubing cutters and just cut our tubing straight. Next, we're going to go ahead and install the little spring clip that helps secure the tubing to the hose barb so you just squeeze it and slide it on. Now to make things a little bit easier for this tubing to slide on to the hose barbs, you just put it in some hot water for a couple of minutes, it will really make things a lot easier for you. Next, we'll go ahead and take our airbag. Slide our tubing onto the hose barb, making sure it goes all the way down. Once the tubing is all the way down, we'll then go ahead and take our clamp here, slide it up into position. Here's how the airbag will fit back down on our lower control arm, slide in there like that. We're going to need to go ahead and pick up our coil spring and feed the airbag in from the underside. Pushing down on the control arm will work the coil spring back into position so that it's seated properly on the bottom and we'll go ahead and work it in to the top side so we'll make sure that the bottom is lined up where it should be. We'll make sure that our airbag is lined up. Put it back into position, make sure we leave a little bit of slack of our air lines and our 05:35 control arm. Now we'll put our floor jack back right here at the bottom of control arm and we'll need to press the spring back into position and lined back up the bolt with this right here. Now that we have the hole lined back up, go ahead and put the bolt back into position. We'll just snug it up for now and then we'll raise and lower the jack a few times. We're going to be checking to make sure that the fitting and the line down here on this bottom that we just drilled that it doesn't bind or pinch on it where it could damage it. Everything seems to be looking good. Now we can go ahead and compress the spring just enough that it just takes enough weight so that it starts to pull it off of our jack stand and then we can go ahead and torque the bolt to the manufacturer specification. Now we'll go ahead and lower our jack back down to release tension on the spring. Next, we're going to go ahead and install our heat shield. We'll need to bend the tab in a little bit, so it's something like that. We'll do that for both sides so you want it to look something like that so you have when it's installed, there will be an air space between the heat shield and the exhaust pipe. Next, we're going to go ahead and put our hose clamps around the exhaust pipe and just get them started a little bit. Go ahead and do that for the other one as well then take our heat shield, slide it up into position. Now you can go ahead and trim off the excess hose clamp if you want by just using a pair of tin snips. Next, we'll go ahead and take our protective covering sleeve 08:08, slide it over our air line. We're going to route or tube from the passenger side, over to the driver side to connect it with our T connector. We're going to route it up above here. We use a couple of zip ties along the way to help secure it. Now that we've got our air line routed over to the driver side, we'll go ahead and repeat the same process for the airbag installation portion with the exception of we will not be installing the heat shield on the driver side. To help with the tube routing, we can remove this panel, so a couple of push fasteners, as well as a screw that hold it in place. Now that we've got the ends of the tubes over on the driver side, we're going to go ahead and cut the ends using our tubing cutter to make sure that they're nice and straight and then we'll need to add in a T fitting to where we tie in with the driver side airbag as well. We'll soak our air line in warm water to make it slide on to the T fitting much easier. We'll also want to make sure before putting the air line on the T fitting that you add one of the squeezed clamps to each line. Then we'll add in our tubing, one on each side of the T. On the end of the T fitting, we'll add in another tube. This tube will run from the T connector to the center of the bumper. We're going to go ahead and take the end of our tubing and route it back here to the rear of the vehicle. Go ahead and remove this push fastener here too, give us a little more access here underneath the rear fascia. Now that we have our air line secure, we'll route it over here towards the center of our vehicle. We're going to go ahead and trim off the excess. We'll then need to install our air valve, Schrader valve that we'll be installing, push on to our air hose. Again, we'll have to heat the hose up so that it slides on and then we'll be drilling a hole here in the underside of the fascia where we'll be securing our Schrader valve. We'll go ahead and install our clamp onto our air hose. We'll then heat the hose up a little bit with our hot water then push our tubing on to our Schrader valve. Slide the clamp up into position. Now we'll need to take one of the nuts and thread it onto the valve. We'll then put a star washer or a lock washer in place. We'll then going to need to choose a location here on the underside of the fascia to drill a hole and push our valve down through. We'll then install the rubber washer, a flat washer, and a second hex nut. Go ahead and tighten it down. We'll go ahead and put our wheels back on our vehicle if you haven't done so so far and then we'll go ahead and put some air into the air bags. Now that we have our airbags pumped up to the recommended PSI, go on spray down each of our air fittings. Check for leaks, we'll be using a soapy water solution. Next, we'll go ahead and reinstall any panels or fasteners that we may have removed in order to route our air lines. We're going to go ahead and set our bags in about 15 PSI. Now you want to keep a minimum of five PSI in the bags at all time, and a maximum of 35 PSI in the airbags. Go ahead and put our cap back on our Schrader valve. That will do it for our installation of the Airlift 1000 Air Helper Springs for the Rear Coil Springs, part number Al60815 on our 2011 Honda Odyssey. .

I have waited to do a reveiw on this until I had some mileage on them. My issue was too much sag in my 2007 Honda Odyssey when loaded. I very often have three or four bikes on a hitch platform rack plus camping gear, one or two adults and two kids. That load was just too much for the stock suspension, particularily the leverage generated by a platform bike rack carrying three or four bikes.. I first tried the SumoSprings on the van. I liked the idea that this could be easily added or removed as my needs dictated. The SumoSprings improved the sag but 4 bikes plus luggage on a 2500 mile trip showed that we were still sagging too much for my liking. I took the SumoSprings out had had the air bags installed by a local garage. I used two air lines with the schraeder valves sticking out of the bottom of the bumper on one side. I change the air pressure using a bike pump. This is very quick and easy to do. I normally leave 18psi in the bags when running empty and raise to 30 to 35 psi when I am going to be carrying a load. 18 psi to 35 psi takes four or five strokes with the pump per bag. Not hard at all. So far I have carried three bikes on my platform rack plus a full load of camping gear on a number of occasions. With the bags inflated to the rated 35 psi, the van sits completely level with the camping/bike load. The ride when loaded is pretty much equal to the ride empty without the bags but keeping in mind that the van handles differently due to the weight and leverage of the bikes hanging off of the rear. Empty I settled on the 18 psi as I am most happy with the ride of the van at that pressure. This solved my issues completely. Nothing bad to say about the SumoSprings, they just were not enough support for what I needed. Shipping from etrailer was quick and easy. 93738





Comments

The service from you folks is simply fantastic. There has been one development that is negative for the airbags. The hardware, most specifically, spring clips that attach the air tubing are not stainless steel or not a high enough grade as they are rusting and one side no longer stays on very well. I live in Wisconsin so they live in a very salty environment but the clips are not really robust enough for life under a vehicle coated in salt. I will have to find replacements. Other than this issue, the bags have been fantastic

I installed the air lift I purchased into my 2012 Odyssey today. The install went well but I wanted to point out 2 things: First, since the under side of a 2012 rear control arm isn't exposed, it should be noted in the instructions that the air line must be secured to the airbag before reinstalling the coil spring and reconnecting the control arm bolt. Also, to avoid the exhaust pipe altogether the air tubing can be run through the lower control arms and center frame section, all etrailer would have to do is supply 2 small grommets to prevent wear. I included a picture of the installed airbag and a picture of the tubing running through the center frame section. Neil 45446

I intalled the airbags, and drove 2200 miles, no issues, adjusted the air once because were I was the temperature was very low. Outside of the no issues. On the install, I did it on a lift and two support stands, worked great. The hole in the center was the must dificult task. Use a dremil to trim all access metal. I will post pictures later Thanks, 112665

Review from a similar Air Lift 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. 90454


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.

Review from a similar Air Lift AirLift 1000 in Vehicle Suspension


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


Comments

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

Review from a similar Air Lift AirLift 1000 in Vehicle Suspension


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


Comments

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


This Air Ride kit works nicely on my 2001 Toyota SiennaVan. We pull a 2400 lb popup camper and it helps support the rear suspension of the vehicle when all our gear is loaded. I had my mechanic mount the valve just under the bumper for easy access. I think it was a good investment and does what I need it to do. 87940


Comments

Its been a year and a half and the Air Ride is still working. When not pulling the camper, the van rides a bit bumpy with the the air springs inflated. So, its better to only inflate when attaching a trailer to your vehicle. I like that the air springs support the back end of our van, and I feel it is safer. Before using the air ride system our front wheel drive van would have problems gaining traction when it was loaded with cargo, and the camper was attached. By elevating the back end of the van, it more evenly distributes the weight to all four tires and makes the ride very smooth.Thanks for a great product!

Review from a similar Air Lift AirLift 1000 in Vehicle Suspension


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

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

Review from a similar Air Lift AirLift 1000 in Vehicle Suspension


Received the shipment promptly. Installation of the Air Lift 1000 kit took about 2.5 hrs on a 2013 Ram 1500 (4x4) due to the garage that was used was unheated (25 deg) and did not have the proper tools. Had two air leaks where the air hoses attached to the barbed nipples at the top of the air bags. The hose material is not very sturdy and would tear easily....plus it was very difficult to get the hoses to fit over the fittings all the way due to the limited access at the top of the spring....and the 25 deg temp didn't help!! Had to heat the air bags with a hair dryer to get them to push up through the spring coils. Would prefer to pay a little extra to have threaded fittings for the air hoses...at least for the air bag fittings. The ends with the fill valves went on OK since access was unlimited and I was able to twist and push the fittings on more easily. The hose flat-spring clamps are generally worthless as they bend out of shape when you apply pressure to position them over the fitting barbs. Ended up using motorcycle fuel line spring clamps (wire type) as they do not get out of shape when used. Have not put any weight in the back or pulled a trailer yet so I cannot comment on the load or leveling capabilities yet. 111483

Just installed it and have not had a chance to really use it yet. Install was pretty simple. The hardest part really was trying to figure out how to route the passenger side tubing away from the exhaust. I did it with a floor jack on one side and then the other. I went ahead and used the "T" valve with one Schrader valve and drilled a whole in the bracket that the trailer wiring secures to. Took about 30-45 min not including drilling the hole in the bracket. 180078

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


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


The airbags would have been really difficult to install into the spring coil if we didn't have a vise and a vacuum pump, but that's all that was difficult. Everything else was very simple. We also ordered The Curt trailer hitch Custom Fit - Class III - 2" - C13105 at the same time as the airlifts...it was also fairly simple to install, but there are two of us, so don't know how it would have been if just Smitty tried by himself. Toyota doesn't install hitches on their 2013 Siennas...so we had taken it to U-Haul to have one put on. It was awful. The clearance was horrendous, so that's why we purchased the Curt from etrailer.com. We didn't take before and after pics, but there is at least 2" more clearance with the new hitch and it fits very nicely tucked up under the car. So, anybody want a U-Haul trailer hitch? We have one....cheap!! 81145

Review from a similar Air Lift AirLift 1000 in Vehicle Suspension


Haven't put it to a complete test yet, but so far so good. Installation was pretty easy although I did not follow the instructions. I put the bag inlets at the top rather than the bottom because with them on the bottom the hoses hung really low and were pretty much guaranteed to catch on stuff and get damaged. Hose routing was very nice going up. Nice amount of hose for my Toyota Sienna and had some left over - I hate products that don't give you any extra length. Hoses were kind of hard to get on barbed fittings even with "spit lube". I was afraid to use any other sort of lubricant. Also I found it easier to insert the bags without following the instructions of squashing them flat and putting the cap back on. I just squashed them as needed as I put them into the springs. 72132

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

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

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

2002 Odyssey. Old suspension. Solution? Replace all rear suspension. At that time, install the springs. Piece of cake. Follow drilling instructions accurately. FOR 3/4" HOLE, USE A 3/4" BIMETAL HOLE SAW FROM HARDWARE STORE. This ended up being the solution to drilling a 3/4 in hole. A no-brainer. Get this product. With new suspension, from center of hub to bottom of quarter panel, aprox 215 mm height. Air should be added or removed to maintain this height for proper traction and tire wear. Don't jack up the car with air. Let the car ride at the height it was designed and aligned to. 39179

Installed on 2014 Toyota Sienna using floor jack and jackstands. Would have been very easy with a lift. Installed per video except I did not have an angle drill to mount the bracket for the air inlet so had to improvise a bit. One thing I noticed after the install is that the little cushioning donuts that go on top of the airbags seem to have a taper and the wider part should probably go down. Mine of course were installed the opposite way and seem ok. I did not see any mention of this in the video. I did inflate to 25 psi before lowering the van and everything seems good 150216

First I must say I love this etrailer site. I bought a used Ford Wagon and had the Hitch and this air suspension system mounted by my mechanic. They thought it was a very good idea and that it should work as the product stated. I have not hauled anything yet. It is for my motorcycle trailer on a small car. Before this I had just the hitch installed on my SAAB and noticed a sag in the back-end. The SAAB was totaled by a Texting driver. I will update this when the motorcycle comes out in the Spring. 159831

Review from a similar Air Lift AirLift 1000 in Vehicle Suspension


These air bag helper springs have only been installed for a month now, so it is too early to attest to their quality. The installation went smooth and in accordance with the sales information. There was one caveat - the hose clamps for attaching the heat shield were too large, requiring me to make a trip to the hardware. I towed my camper up into the mountains and I had no problems with rear end sag and no control issues. If they continue to perform as they have thus far, I will be very pleased. 95319

I put the bags and hose in warm water on the advice of another review helped a bunch folding the bags. Slipped in the springs easy as pie.

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

Good product. Clear instructions and the video on e-trailer really makes the installation easy to understand. On my '08 Grand Caravan my shock absorber bolts were rusted in place and could not be removed. I worked around this by unbolting the top shock brackets from the body. Other than that the installation was fairly easy and just like the video shows. 180293

Yes indeed, the AL60811 kit will fit on the rear of your 1998 Wrangler Sahara. If you will need to adjust the bags frequently a compressor kit may be advantageous. If you off-road with your Jeep, a system with a reserve tank may come in handy for other applications. Check out AL25592 or AL25572.

al60811 as I under stand you install air bags in coil spring what do you do with the rubber bump stop existing stock inside the spring. do you permanently remove the bump stop ?

comment by: dennis - 09/01/2013


2001

On the Chrysler vehicles, the stop just pulls out of the cup and is not reinstalled. There is not need for a bump stop once the airbags are in place. They will fulfill that role as well as suplememnt the coil springs.

  • Can AirLift 1000 Rear Axle Helper Spring # AL60815 Support Trailer with 600-lbs Tongue Weight
  • The rear-axle air bag kit you referenced, AirLift 1000 Helper Spring # AL60815, provides up to 1000-lbs of load leveling at its maximum pressure rating of 35-lbs psi. Your trailer with approximately 600-lb tongue weight would certainly fall within the operating range for this product. If you are towing often and frequently have widely varying trailer weights then an adjustable air bag kit like this AirLift 1000 is a good choice for adding rear-end support.

  • To install the Air Lift 1000 Air Helper Springs, part # AL60815, on your 2012 Honda Odyssey, it does require the coil springs to be removed from the vehicle. The rubber jounce bumper that is inside the coil spring will have to be unbolted and removed. Then, the air spring will be installed into the coil spring and the whole coil spring with air spring will be installed back on the vehicle. A hole will need to be drilled in the control arm of the vehicle for the stem of the air spring to...

  • Do the Air Lift 1000 Helper Springs Wear When not in use on a 2012 Honda Odyssey
  • The trick is to always have a couple pounds in the air bags at all times. If you do this the air bags of the Air Lift AirLift 1000 # AL60815 should last the life of your vehicle. This product also has a lifetime warranty. I attached installation instructions for this product for you to check out also.

  • Installation Directions for 2007 Honda Odyssey Installing AirLift Suspension # AL60815
