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

Video Transcript for Air Lift Vehicle Suspension 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 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.

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 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

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

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

I would recommend these too anyone that has a vehicle the squats when loaded. They were a little difficult to install I found out it was easier to remove the coil spring to install with that being said it was well worth the effort 349432

So far I really like this product. Installation was relatively easy and fit very well. I have not towed yet with this, but I anticipate it will work very well as it completely firms up the ride when it is inflated. 346294

Review from a similar Air Lift AirLift 1000 in Vehicle Suspension

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


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

Review from a similar Air Lift AirLift 1000 in Vehicle Suspension

I just arrived on my 938 mile first trip today with the new air bags. I had myself my wife 2 kids and the back loaded even had to remove 3rd row seats 2nd row middle seat was in. Total weight in the van was 1196LBS passengers and cargo. Had a hitch carrier total weight with carrier 226LBS. Total weight of 1422LBS. Over the 1340LBS max load but I removed the rear seats which weighted in at 128 LBS so I was at 1294LBS total. 46LBS under max weight. So I tested these things first trip. Van sat 1- 3/4"lower than normal ride height at 35 psi. Rear side skirt was 1" lower than the front with everything and everyone loaded. Had a friend measure. The van drove great the van took bumps on the interstate and didn't bounce all over. It made the rear stable and very little lean. Airbags made it a night and day difference in a stable ride. Besides having to remember the van doesnt hace acceleration you have to remember not to jerk the wheel cause though it helps keep the rear more planted it also gives the feel as there is no weight in the rear so sudden changes can make the rear shimmy. Turns with that weight feel solid but take more direction of the steering wheel to compensate. Overall this product is the best $ I have spent on this van for road trips. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND if you road trip heavyweight. Air bags were set at 35psi dropped to 30.5psi by the end of the trip directions said this would happen as they were installed 2 days before the trip and had 25 miles on them. I didn't connect them together but separately was faster and I like the idea of adjustable height left to right. Took about 3hrs to install from start of getting tools ready to clean up and first test drive. That's with my 5yr old wanting to help by stealing my sockets. Easy to install as long as your the hands on type springs are NOT a joke to mess around with. I drove from Chicago IL to Fort Worth TX and kept a 70 mile hr pace with ease. Slowing for hills and sharp turns on the interstate only. I would recommend if you are adding these for loading up your Oddy to also upgrade to a better rotor and Brake Pad to help with the braking distance. Recommend EBC rotors and EBC RED Pads . Any questions asked I will try to anwser. 265126

Review from a similar Air Lift AirLift 1000 in Vehicle Suspension

There are 6 in our family and we like to play on our vacations. Which means lots of people and stuff in and on our mini-van, and a bike rack with 5 bikes on the back (and one bike inside). Our old Toyota Sienna clearly sagged under the burden, so when we got a 2011 Sienna which has a lower bumper to begin with, I was nervous about how it would handle everything, and particularly with the bike rack out back if it might even scrape the ground at times (bottom of hills, speed bumps...). I purchased these to help the suspension. They installed relatively easily, and we took our first trip of about 450 miles to Cape Cod and all went well. We had minimal if any noticeable drop in the back of the van, even fully loaded with all six of us, a full rooftop carrier, 5 bikes on the back, and extra seating inside (van sits 8) folded down and that available space also packed. We have only had these for a few weeks and I am a bit of a perfectionist, so these may very well deserve an excellent mark. The only thing that is keeping me from that is that I have only had them for a little while, so if they keep performing as they have so far, I would grade them as excellent. 90454


One year in and they are working very well. I did not test them terribly much this past year, but I have to say what we have done has all gone very well. I am very happy with this purchase and have no complaints.

Review from a similar Air Lift AirLift 1000 in Vehicle Suspension

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


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

Review from a similar Air Lift AirLift 1000 in Vehicle Suspension

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 this in just a few days and had a friend help me install it. I am VERY pleased with it! I had installed a leveling kit to the front end of my 2011 Dodge 1500 Sport, and after loading the bed with tools that I use for work, it sat down in the rear. These air bags are perfect. I put about 25lbs in to level out the truck. The truck rides better and looks great. We drilled out one of the bolt holes that secure my tag and installed the valve stem there. Works Great 107304


After having this product for a year, I can honestly say that I will never be without it! With the addition of this simple inexpensive product, other than just the looks I have noticed that my tire wear has dramatically improved! you know how cheap tires are... In the last year I have put about 40k miles on the truck. Im in the Agriculture business and see a lot of dirt roads and drive out into fields daily.I check the system air pressure any time I notice a change in my tire pressure. I havent seen any leaks and that was my main concern.Overall, I am extremely pleased with this product and believe it was worth every penny.Bottom line, if you are reading this review and are thinking about purchasing this product DO IT!

Review from a similar Air Lift AirLift 1000 in Vehicle Suspension

I installed these on my 2009 Ram 1500. The product was exactly as described and even with being located in Alaska, they arrived super quick! I haven't had the chance to test them out loaded yet as I just installed them last night, but plan on revising my review after the load testing goes! I will note that I installed these differently than stated in the instructions. I lifted the truck off the ground with the axle hanging and removed the rear coils completely and installed the air bag. This seemed like a much quicker and easier route than trying to fish the bag through the coil on the truck. I also routed my air lines in the rear bed stake pockets and under the edge of the bed to protect the valve from the weather. I will add that I have the Tuf-Truck 1223 rear coils and not the stock coils in the rear. I was hesitant to purchase airbags as its not the factory coil, but it worked out perfectly! with the HD coils and Airbags I should have no issues with sag. Overall I am really satisfied with this purchase. Every ram 1500 with coils should have these. 338266

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

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


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

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

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


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

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

Review from a similar Air Lift AirLift 1000 in Vehicle Suspension

Installation was super quick and easy in my home garage. The hardest part was finding a way to jack the truck high enough to hang the rear axle. My test was 25 bags of mulch. The before installation picture shows the rear squat. The after picture is of the exact same load with 30psi in the air bags. Super happy with the results. The ride is much better with a load in the back. Can't wait to hook up my camper to see how much better the ride is on a long trip. 361533

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 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 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

Hard to install, don't be fooled. I could have done it I figured but [for lack of time] I delivered it to my auto shop for the work. This is a high quality shop with good mechanics I trust. It took them 5 hrs to include replacing tie rod bolts on a Honda Pilot that were rusted on; had to be released. They said whole axle had to be lowered down to install these bags. The upside is these units are high quality (so far) and seem to work well. In the Honda Pilot, towing a 1575 Lance trailer, they are totally needed as the back end settles all the way down with tongue weight. I'd actually like Gen 2 of these bags to be taller too. Your SUV probably will too and if you're reading this you're on the right track to solve this problem. I'd buy these again but factor in time/expense for the install. 313648

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

Review from a similar Air Lift AirLift 1000 in Vehicle Suspension

I have a 2008 Sienna and did the older install where the valves were mounted to the hitch, rather than through the car jack area. I also used wire loom 1/4" diameter throughout the install for extra protection and used metal loom clamps with self drilling screws as the install video showed for 2006 Sienna's. The install took about an hour once I figured everything out. I didn't do the tee fitting with only one valve because it was plastic, but I heard you can order a brass tee that might be more durable. However, since one line is longer than the other to my valves, I notice that it is difficult to completely sync up the psi, so I would do the tee fitting if I do on another vehicle. I didn't measure exactly, but definitely with the eye test the Air Lift system kept the back end up under a heavy load with hitch mount bike rack loaded with 4 bikes. I could also feel less sag and bounce when going over bumps and a more stable ride under load. So far so good, we'll see how all the parts last when they have to go through a few winters. But for now, works great. 220032

Just 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

Review from a similar Air Lift AirLift 1000 in Vehicle Suspension

These airlifts have been terrific. I have them on a 2006 Toyota sienna minivan . If you have one you know how low they ride. I raise and lower the pressure according to the situation. For routine driving I keep the pressure around 10 and will raise it up to 35 if there's a heavy load or with towing. We tow a medium-size pop up camper. They have been terrific with reducing any scraping of the hitch. Installation was quite easy, just follow the videos. I did modify the tube routing. Did not join them together but took each individual airlift tube straight out to the front of the tire. There are these little "pockets" in front of each tire. I just ran each line straight to that little pocket and then stick the The valves right into the pocket. It has worked great. I do find that when I have it on lower pressure that there is a slight squeak from the airlifts. I assume this is due to the fact that they're able to move around more at the lower pressure. 431067

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

I purchased the Draw-Tite hidden trailer hitch, Airlift 1000 air springs and tail light wiring kit for my 2017 AWD Sienna. Reviews were correct, the hitch looks great and you should bend the tabs during installation to get it in. I also purchased the wiring kit for trailer lights (pain to install but worth it) and the Airlift 1000 additional load supports that should help with a full load. The air springs were surprisingly easy to install especially when you are already installing the hitch and wiring kit. Recommend doing it all at once (wiring kit first, then hitch, then air lift springs). etrailer has been over the top on customer service. Shipped quick, checked after it arrived and love the website! Already placed another order for more accessories! (get the cargo bag ahead of time with free shipping if you are going to use a cargo hitch) 360092

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.

Toyota doesn't install hitches on their 2013 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 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.

Review from a similar Air Lift AirLift 1000 in Vehicle Suspension

Installed on a 2016 Toyota Sienna. I was able to install these bags while the van was still on rear ramps from a Curt trailer hitch install. I was able to squeeze the bags down and get them in the springs with very little trouble. I installed these bags upside down as the Sienna sits so low, there is little doubt that the airlines would have been ripped apart in no time. With the airlines coming out of the top, they are much better protected. I have read of others doing the same and the manufacturer should make a couple of adjustments to the spacer and suggest this upside down install on the Sienna. The product comes with two Schrader valves, but not enough airline to run both bags separately if you want side by side Schrader valves. Once installed, the bags work well to keep the van from sagging when loaded. 267667

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

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

Just got the equalizer 14000 weight distribution hitch and the airlift bags in today from ups. Took a little over 2 hours to install both. The hitch I had before combined with the stock ram 1500 suspension was all over the road with my toy hauler. I couldn't go over 35-40 miles an hour with out feeling like I was going to lose my rig and anyone that's ever been in that situation knows what a white knuckle experience that is. I just got back from a test drive and it is unbelievable the difference those two items made. I got up to 70 and it drove like a dream.

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 weight of trailer with motorcycle is less than 900 lbs. Of course, the van itself has another 100 to 200 extra lbs. So not too heavy, but without the Air Lift 1000, rear suspension would drop 3-4 inches. Now it barely drops at all. This also help with loading and unloading the bike out the back of trailer since it keeps the rear of the trailer lower as well. The van handles as if I wasn't towing. Secondary benefit...headlights stay level and you aren't blinding oncoming traffic. Definitely recommend, and would purchase again. Excellent product. 371482

I am very satisfied with this setup, installed quickly and easily. The van rides and handles better weather empty or full, and it really is nice to not have everyone flashing me at night when the whole family is in the car(low beams). I installed these on my Sienna AWD van, and did invert them so the air connections were at the top of the spring for better air hose routing. In doing so, I lost the shims. The best part was that I emailed AirLift customer service to see if I could purchase the shims. Let's just say I am more than impressed with their response. You dont find customer service like this, they were responsive, and sent me new spacers asap. I would highly recommend these to anyone. 54148

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...

  • Suspension Enhancement Recommendation For 2004 Chevrolet Tahoe 4x4
  • Personally, since you are in the market for a smoother ride, I recommend the Coil Sumo Spring Custom Helper # CSS-1094R, which, as an added bonus will help support heavy loads on your rear suspension. 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.

  • Will Air Lift 1000 Air Springs Work with the 2007 Chevrolet Avalanche Factory Auto-Leveling Option
  • AirLift 1000 Air Helper Springs for Coil Springs # AL60769 are unfortunately not compatible with vehicles that have the factory installed auto-leveling option. However, if you carry/tow heavy loads regularly and experience sag, I recommend a quality yet cost effective bump stop replacement like the Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement System # TGMRYS4. These are rubber springs that replace the factory bump stop mounted on the underside of your frame at the axle. The Timbren kit fits...

  • Recommended Air Springs For 2004 Chevrolet Avalanche 4x4
  • For your 2004 Chevrolet Avalanche 4x4, I recommend the Air Lift AirLift 1000 Air Helper Springs for Coil Springs - Rear, # AL60769. These air springs are a confirmed fit for your vehicle. The springs fit inside your rear coil springs to add support when hauling heavy loads. This system allows you to manually adjust air pressure to get the even load distribution and support you need. These springs have a 1,000 lb capacity and are adjustable from 5-35 psi. You may also be interested...

  • Will Helper Springs Provide Lift For 2002 Chevrolet Suburban Suspension
  • Air helper springs like the Air Lift AirLift 1000, part # AL60769, are not designed to lift your 2002 Chevrolet Suburban. These are intended to aid the suspension in your vehicle when heavy loads are being carried. They are designed to help stabilize and level the vehicle with up to 1,000 lbs of support. This system does not increase your weight carrying capacity. The air pressure can be adjusted from 5 psi to 35 psi, and has a lifetime warranty

  • In What Orientation do the Air Lift 100 Air Helper Springs Get Installed on a 2003 Chevy Suburban
  • When the suspension is under load it won't matter whether or not the air bag is in the top or the bottom of the spring. The pictures you are referring to are showing the air spring in the coil spring with the suspension unloaded and stretched out. Under normal circumstances with the truck on the ground the spring will be almost or actually touching on the top and bottom in the coil spring. All that really matters is that you install the bag with the valve pointing up and protector on...

  • Rear Axle Suspension Helper Spring Kit for 2002 Chevrolet Avalanche with 6-Inch Lift
  • The AirLift 1000 Air Helper Spring kit # AL60769 installs inside your rear coil springs. This type of air bag cannot be used with suspension lift spacers the way you can with a kit like the Firestone # F2250 that mounts to the axle. If you have a 2WD without factory top overload springs you can easily install rear suspension kit # CSS-1125R from Super Springs. Because this installs inside the turns of the coil springs it needs no spacers. This kit is simple to install, cost effective...
