Work great easy to install unless you have the coil spacer lift kit then you have to remove springs and spacer to drill a hole for the airline. Wasnt hard just time consuming. Keeps my truck level when hauling a gooseneck horse trailer.

Had some Timbrens on my 2011 Ram 1500 truck before and thought the ride had really become bumpy when loaded. Needless to say i did not enjoy this. So i tried the air lift 1000. Much better! Got my smooth ride back loaded or empty. I easily adjust the air pressure via the on-board compressor (sold separately). They work great together and i enjoy my ride again when loaded or not. I highly recommend both together or just the air bags.

They worked out great. Most times I only have to use about 20lbs and my truck does not sag at all. People are amazed when I load up and the truck doesn't go down at all. Really fantastic when hauling the camper. Makes it safer. Very easy to install. I tell people all the time to invest in these, especially Ram owners because they are so easy to install. Thanks for a great product.

I am very pleased with my AIR LIFT 1000 for my 2011 Ram, It was very easy to install and works awesome. I pull a travel trailer and supplies, it kept my Ram level even with 7,000 lbs of trailer & supplies. Would highly recommend this product and SD TRUCK SPRINGS!!! Thank you

This is a good product. Installation was very simple and straight forward. It took less than 2 hours. I was a bit disappointed in the spring type hose clamps as I had one bend and fail during installation. It would have been nice to have an extra clip or a recommended source for them. Also didn't expect the kit to come with a T fitting as the catalog page recommended buying one.

Great price!! Great product!! EASY 2 hour install and I took my time. I've hauled 2500 lbs pallets of salt several times a year with my old 3/4 ton - went to a 13 Ram 1500 recently and these made it possible to continue that. It's pushing it but no bottoming out at all. Other use is with a medium duty utility trailer which is way nicer now as well...keeps the ride height level. Highly recommend to anyone hauling anything!! Buy this!!!

worked well. The problems with ordering that I had (out of stock, unknown ship times, not honoring the rebate) were with Air Lift, SDTrucksprings were great to work with. The compressor for these bags have to be mounted in the cab and out of the elements. It is a little loud and as these bags are in the spring, I have been told they have a relatively short life. I have the 5000 lb bags in my older truck and love them, have lasted forever and still going strong. I was told these should hopefully last a few years. That was from the manufacturer. They work well for leveling, you need to pair it with the compressor you want eg. both lift equally, side to side leveling, manual fill, ect.

I have one complaint; I ordered and paid for the 1/4" Union Tee, but I did not receive it. All I received was the cheap plastic Tee that comes with the springs. I would really like to have the 1/4" Union Tee that I paid extra for.

These worked out very well. To start they were easy to install. The air bags worked kept the truck level, no hard ride. Thank you.
by Malcomb G
Excellent experience. Kit came with absolutely everything needed to install these airbags. The instructions were clear and the installation went smooth with no surprises. The airbags made a significant improvement in the ride and carrying capacity of my 1500 Dodge Ram and when I'm not towing, I drop the air pressure back down to 5 lbs and I have the same ride that I did before the bags were installed. If I purchase another coil spring equipped truck, which I most likely will, these air bags will be the first accessory that I'll add.

I was having problems with bottoming out in my Ram. These air bag were a breeze to install and made my ride quality while towing my travel trailer very nice. Great product highly recommend for the 2011 to current Ram 1500 pick-up towing heavy loads.
by Manuel L
So far, so good. Have to wait till next summer to say more. After winter with salt and sand on road, i will see if balloon still do the job in coil spring after rubbering on them.

I've had these for 2 months now and my truck now rides level. It took all of a 1/2 an hour to install. Be sure to watch the install video first. I tow a landscaping/preservation trailer with tool boxes, a generator, compressor and a zero turn mower. At night, I'm now not shinning my headlights up in the top of the trees and on-coming traffic doesn't flash me anymore. Great product for the price.

I purchased Air Lift 1000 Helper Springs this past spring and they have worked as well, or better, than I expected. They are very easy to adjust (With the optional tee) and installation was really pretty easy. Did it my self in a few hours. Could have done it quicker if I had had a floor jack. I would recommend this item to anyone looking for a little help leveling there Dodge PU or a little extra carrying capacity while carrying an extra load (I carry an 800 lb. ATV and 13 foot boat at the same time). And the price is right. Thanks for a great product.
by Shannon M
Good quality, has held up well and definitely makes the ride more comfortable at lower psi's. Install was a little tough without a lift but not that bad, the most dificult part was getting the locking ring around the airbag nipple.
by Joel E
Installed on my 2011 Ram 1500 almost 2 years ago. Installation was simple. Have enjoyed the additional load support towing recreational trailers and camping gear with no problems encountered whatsoever.
I have relied on Air Lift spring supports on several vehicles since 1977.

2nd set i have owned, first set on 2011 Ram 4x4 and this set on 2013 Ram 4x4. does what they are supposed to do helps the softer springs in these Rams when you hook to a trailer. No problems with either set, pretty simple to instl. Would buy again for sure.

I have a 2014 RAM 1500 Eco diesel and I installed air bags on it and they work perfect with 25-30 LBS of pressure. I pull a 29 ft. 5th wheel trailer with it. It is an Open Road Lite. The two of them with the air bags are a perfect match. I wish I could send a picture and you would see.
by Joseph C
Easy to install and did exactly what it was supposed to. The big difference was noticed when I hauled my horse trailer as the trailer would sink the frame right down on to the axle tube. These enabled the truck to handle the additional weight.

This product works very well and is very easy to install.
