Add An Air Bag For Extra Lift
If heavy trailers or heavy loads are dragging your rear axle down, add an air bag to coil springs and get extra lift. Air suspension has been around for more than 60 years, but Air Lift 1000 air bags are easy to install and especially popular with 1/2-ton pickups and SUV’s, according to Jeremy Hart, Air Lift Co.
  “Air bags are really the only way to add load support to those types of vehicles,” says Hart. “You don’t have to remove the coil springs to install. You just need jacks, jack stands, a little knowledge, and you can install them in your driveway at home.”
  Hart advises prospective buyers to visit the company website or call with specific vehicle information. If there isn’t a dedicated application for the vehicle, the company can often do a customized kit.
  “All we need is the measurements of the coil spring the air bag will fit into,” says Hart.
  Air Lift 1000 air springs provide up to 1,000 lbs. of load-leveling capacity. They are available in 6000 series rear kit and 8000 series front kit applications. Estimated installation time is 2 hours or less.
  Air Lift’s website also offers information on other products, along with helpful advice on properly loading and hauling trailers and buying air springs and other components. One section provides a wealth of information about air suspension facts, myths and terminology.
