Air adjust ability makes the difference. Steel factory suspensions must find some type of happy ground between ride comfort and load hauling capacity. The problem with solving problems with steel springs is that smooth riding suspensions have trouble with heavy loads, and heavy duty springs ride rough. With Air Lift adjustable air springs, you can have the best of both worlds and solve your suspension problems by tuning your air bags to handle all load and road conditions. To give the air helper springs more support while towing or hauling, increase the air pressure, and then remove the air for a softer ride while your vehicle is unloaded.

Some of the common load and hauling problems and air lift air spring can solve are…

Suspension Sag - By adjusting the air helper springs to accept the tongue weight of the trailer, proper weight distribution to all tires can improve steering, braking, and tire wear. This process becomes increasingly important while towing.

Rough Ride - With Air Lift's progressive spring rate, and adjustable air spring design, a smooth ride is provided while the springs absorb bumps, keeping the vehicle on the road for better handling as well.

Bottoming Out - Air Lift air springs can also help with the ride height problems you may experience while towing. Many times, when hauling or towing, your vehicle may sink, or bottom out, providing an unlevel riding condition. Air Lift springs can be used to restore a normal ride height, reducing wear on your suspension and eliminating the crashing and bottoming out on bumps and holes.

Sway and Body Roll - If you are looking for a safer, sturdier, and more comfortable ride, Air Lift air springs are the solution. When you are towing your camper, trailer, or boat you can use the air springs to precisely adjust vehicle height and load support, allowing for exact alignment and eliminating trailer sway. The air helper springs increase spring rate, support, and vastly improve vehicle stability, while virtually eliminating roll and sway.

Headlight Aim - The only way you have proper headlight aiming for safety is by having a level vehicle. The stability that will be provided by an Air Lift air helper spring, will make for a level vehicle and safe driving at night.
