So far I like the product. It wasn't that hard to install but it wasn't a cake walk either. Seems like it will do the job but I haven't had a chance to put it to a test. SD Truck Springs has the best prices out there and the item got to me super fast. Thanks!

The kit delivered all it promises! Relatively easy installation, extra weight carrying capacity, and value. Highly recommended instead of load bars to carry more weight. Excited to install remote operated compressor, now! It’s on my Christmas list!

Great product! This is my second truck I've installed these on, and well worth the investment. I don't heavy haul, just prevents away while hauling my hitch camper. Also a better ride empty. Already have a friend getting a set for his new truck.

Easy install. I have a 24' trailer and only need to put about 15 psi in to level my 2017 Ram 1500. Great product and can't beat the price !!

Extremely easy to install. I don’t notice any sagging with our Shadow 2 horse stablemate now.

The Air Lift kit worked very well. Installation was probably a little more difficult than what the video showed. It would definitely be easier with the truck lifted up instead of using a jack. The additional lift that the air bags provide easily levels out my truck when towing my 29' camper. I would recommend these for any diy looking for an easy way to level a sagging rear end.

Was easy to install, about 1.5 hours in my driveway. Took the sag out when hauling my camper and smoothed out the ride. Came with everything needed, although the split filler valve came first. Very satisfied.

I purchased the air springs for my 2009 Ram because my camper was to heavy for the factory coil springs to handle. They worked great and brought the rear of the truck up for a nice level tow. Easy to install, had them in in less then an hour. My only complaint is the cheap clamps they send, I had to replace them due to not clamping hard enough and having air leaks.

I purchased a Ram 1500 last March, 2017. I tow a 7000 lb. travel trailer and had a problem with some sway issues as the suspension on the truck was a bit soft. After adding the Air Lift Helper Spring Kit with about 28 psi, the sway was eliminated completely and the truck towed much like the 3/4 ton truck that I had been using. The truck also is level when towing as the "sag" is gone. Another positive is adding the kit to the truck did not alter the ride quality even when 28 psi is left in the bags and not towing. Installation was very easy. The pressure remains very constant for months at a time. I would recommend this product .

Bags seem ok but feel ripped off that they want to sell you a "T" kit so you can hook bags together . the air bag kit comes with a "T" in the kit . no need to purchase the extra one for $6.95...just bad business...The $6.95 "T" that I didnt need was mailed separate and didn't arrive until day after bags were installed . . waste of $6.95..THANKS

The package arrived on time with all parts needed to complete installation. I found it easiest to tie two strings around the folded compressed air bag before sliding it into position and releasing the cap to reinflate. The bags fit perfectly and easily self-inflated. I also found it easiest- though more time required- to remove my inner fender wells as I do not have a lift. I used the single valve setup and the supplied T-connector with the clamps also supplied in the kit. No other clamps were needed and I used a dial gauge hooked up for quite awhile to show no loss of air or leaks. I tow a 30' travel trailer and these air bags will assist my weight distribution hitch in properly leveling the truck & trailer. Best price I found was here at SD Truck Springs. The installation video was all I needed to get started and finish.

Work great for extra stability while pulling trailer with truck bed loaded. Easy to install if you can get access to a lift. So far so good.

The lift worked great I have a 2012 Ram Outdoorsman I tow a 10,000lb boat this kept the rear end very level, my only complaint is the shrader valve hardware rusted very quickly it should be galvanized or stainless.

My husband absolutely loves these and will never tow our RV trailer again without them. This is sure protection for our Dodge Ram. This is money well spent!

All trucks should have these installed. Tractor trailers use this technology to account for varying loads. Im using a 2009 dodge 1500 to pull a heavy equipment trailer and a tractor, the truck is very capable, but the coil suspension sagged very badly. After putting these bags in the coils and adding some air, it is like a 2500 suspension. when im done, air down and i have my smooth ride back, Very worth the money, simple to install and very durable.

They work really well. The video instructions were perfect. They were a little hard to install with OLD hands. A younger person with strong grip will have no problem. This is about a 30 min. job.

Extremely easy install, and works just as advertised. I had access to a lift, which shortened the job. Only about a 30min install. Makes my Dodge Ram 1500 more level when pulling my 30 ft camper, and improved handling.

Bag's work very well. Stiffens the spring's enough when towing trailer, But maintain nice ride. Install tip cut air line in lengths and install on bag before placing bags inside springs. Nice fix for the price. Thank You Kevin Lexa

Worked great on my Ram 1500. Super easy to install. Would highly recommend.

This was exactly what I needed, they were easy to install and worked just as I had hoped. Before installing these my truck would squat lower than I liked for towing my 5th wheel. After installation my truck sits level and I get better gas mileage. Great product. Well worth the price.

These Air lift helper springs are the absolute best addition that I could have made to my truck. I am an avid hunter so I am always carrying a lot of ice and feed. Now I can level my truck out in seconds. To top that off if they easy to install. I don't know how I got along without them.

I am very pleased with the Air Lift 1000 Bags. They are Heavy Duty and reasonably priced. I towed a large Uhaul trailer with them across the U.S. and was pleased. My 2013 Ram 1500 pulls easily but didn't fair well with a heavy tongue weight until these were installed. I leave them at 10lbs and the truck rides very well. Installation did not require dropping the springs. They will slide through the spring opening when the truck is jacked up so the axle is hanging at it's fullest extent. Drop the tubing through the top of the spring perch first and though the spring opening and attach to the bag before putting the bag through the spring. It simplifies everything.

Clamps for bag nipples were cumbersome to put on in the space I had. One slipped off during transport. Decent product for the price.

I haul my car to the track twice a year and had no need for a 3/4 ton other than that but was tired of my truck sagging. These bags work great and saved me from having to purchase something that I didn't want. They are very easy to install, just lift the truck from the tow hitch and you can sneak them right between the coils. Thank you to whoever designed these, they are great.

This product is fantastic. I ordered them on Sunday and they were on my door step on Thursday morning. Installation was easy,little tip, take the inner fender off when youare installing the lines if you have to work on it from the ground. I pull a 7000 enclosed cargo trailer full of audio equipment and my truck went from dropping 3 ½ inches at the tow bar to just over 1 and the handling is night and day.
