Why Air?

Air Springs...

• Safer ride • More comfortable ride

the load & towing problem solver. Enjoy your vehicle’s ride loaded or unloaded… air adjustability is the difference!

Air Lift has been designing and building air spring suspensions since 1950, and our years of experience have made us experts in

If towing or hauling is a bouncing, swaying “thrill ride”… if you’re concerned about safety when your vehicle is loaded… if you and your passengers could use a little more comfort in that nice ride of yours… maybe it’s time to “add air”!

improving vehicle ride, safety, handling and load hauling.

Put an end to these common problems:

Factory suspensions must compromise between ride comfort and load hauling capacity. Smooth ride suspensions can’t carry heavy loads; heavy springs ride rough, especially when the vehicle is unloaded. Air adjustable springs solve these problems and give a safe, comfortable ride under all load and road conditions. Just add air for a muscular suspension when towing or hauling a heavy load; remove it for a softer ride when the load is removed.

SAG

THE BENEFITS OF AIR LIFT AIR SPRINGS Even light loads cause sag

Heavy loads cause extra sag and bottoming out

Off-center loads cause vehicle lean & poor handling

Rough ride with no load or light load

Still sags with heavy load

Off-center loads cause vehicle lean & poor handling

Proper weight distribution to all the tires improves steering, braking, and tire wear. Especially important when towing; adjust the air springs to accept the tongue weight of your trailer.

No Helper Springs Steel Helper Springs Comfortable, safe ride unloaded or loaded

Level and stable up to GVWR

Adjusted side-to-side & front-to-rear (optional)

SWAY AND BODY ROLL

BOTTOMING OUT

TRAILER SWAY

Air springs increase spring rate and vastly improve vehicle stability. Less roll and sway means a safer, more comfortable ride!

Air Lift springs restore normal ride height when heavily loaded or towing, reducing suspension wear, eliminating “crashing” on bumps.

Air Lift permits precise vehicle height adjustment for exact alignment… and no more trailer sway!

Air is better than steel! Here’s why: Sure, you can add steel helper springs to help handle your trailer or heavy load. The trouble is, if you use an “extra leaf ” steel spring, that “extra” spring rate is always there, whether you’re loaded or not! Using a non-contact or “overload” steel spring sounds better… but it only engages when your vehicle sags enough to make contact! Does that make sense? And rough roads will give you sharp “spikes” of extra spring rate, in other words, rough ride. Who wants that? Maybe your Main Passenger doesn’t like that rough ride, and maybe you’d even like a little more comfort when you’re riding light. Air adjustability is the key! 2

HEADLIGHT AIM

ROUGH RIDE

Only level and stable vehicles provide safe and proper headlight aiming, critical for night driving safety.

Air Lift’s “progressive” spring rate soaks up bumps, keeping tires on the road for better handling. Your passengers will love the difference!

How do I choose the right air springs for my vehicle?

It’s easy! Big over-the-road trucks… use air bag suspension to carry the load. High-end SUVs offer air shocks… as an expensive option! YOU can enjoy the benefits of air… at an affordable price!

NEW! Exclusive!

On Board Air Systems For maximum convenience and leveling “on-the-go,” nothing beats an Air Lift On Board Air System! Now it’s easy to adjust your vehicle for changes in load or road conditions, and you’re sure your air springs have adequate air. Each system comes complete with compressor, gauges (except for new “no gauge” systems!), wiring, connections, everything you need. You’ll love it! Check out our exclusive new electronic systems, SureSet and SmartAir, or our traditional gauge system, Load Controller II. We have systems that are fully automatic, to maintain a level ride under any conditions, or systems for easy driver control. Choose a system that adjusts both rear springs together for front-to-back control, or one that adjusts the springs individually for side-to-side and front-to-back leveling. Which On Board Air System is right for you? See the handy chart on page 9, or call our friendly Customer Support people at 1-800-248-0892… we’re happy to help! Remember… adding On Board Air when you install Air Lift air springs will give you a limited lifetime air spring warranty! See page 4.

SureSet

SureSet Digital On Board Air System P/N 25004 Side-to-side and front-to-rear control of two air springs

Ultimate Digital Control for Air Springs • Easiest to install: one data cable, no air lines to dash • Compact: about the size of a deck of cards! • Can be used with any brand air springs • Digital touch control of air springs… the best controller ever! The new SureSet on board air system solves the problem of where to mount the cab control unit. It’s compact – about the size of a deck of cards – and there are no air lines to run to the cab – just one data cable! What an improvement over traditional systems! SureSet simplifies air pressure maintenance. The electronic control unit remembers the pressure setting for each spring and automatically maintains the driver-selected air pressure. Change your load – just reset your pressure to level the vehicle with the dash-mounted control, and SureSet will automatically maintain the new pressure setting.

It’s like cruise control for air springs! • Easy to install • Includes complete instructions • Pre-assembled wiring harness, controller, air control block, compressor, everything you need • Two year warranty

Exclusive! SmartAir “non-contact” technology for automatic height control. Old fashioned automatic level systems used a lever between the frame and the axle to determine level and ride height. The levers were hard to mount and calibrate, and prone to failure. Now Air Lift solves the problem with SmartAir, an exclusive electronic system that has no contact arm! It’s quick and easy to install, and has no lines at all to the cab! The leveling system senses when the system is not level – either too low or too high – and automatically returns to the desired set ride height. Works under any road, any load conditions… it simply keeps the vehicle level, no matter what!

Load Controller II

Economical, popular, basic On Board Air System

This is our most popular compressor and air control system for trucks, vans, and SUVs. The basic system controls rear bags together for front-to rear leveling; the dual-path model controls two springs independently for side-to-side and front-to-rear leveling. All kits include our exclusive wiring harness for fast, easy installation. To eliminate the major cause of air spring failure, our Low Pressure Sensor automatically activates if pressure falls below the minimum safe level.

Frequently Asked Questions

Point-of-Purchase Materials for dealers and installers Air Lift has a full assortment of point-of-purchase materials for dealers to help them tell the air spring story, and help build profitable business! Most feature our “Thrill Ride” theme, reminding customers that towing does not have to be a thrill ride! Call our friendly Customer Support people to order what you need to boost your Air Lift sales!

Q. Will adding air springs increase the Weight Rating of my vehicle? A. No. Adding air springs does not change the Weight Rating (GVWR, GCWR, GAWR) of a vehicle. Adding weight over the factory rating is dangerous and voids your Air Lift warranty. Weight ratings take into account tires, bearings, frame, brakes and more. So just increasing your suspension’s ability to support weight does not increase the weight ratings. Never exceed your vehicle weight ratings. Q. Do you have to add a compressor (On Board Air System) to your air springs? A. No, but it sure is great! You can add air from any source as long as it provides sufficient pressure to service the springs. On Board Air has become popular because it is so convenient, and because it is harder to find service stations with air available. All adjustments are automatic, or can be made right from the dash, even while driving. Q. How do I get replacement parts if I ever need them? A. You can get parts from your dealer, or directly from Air Lift Company. If you dealer cannot help, call Air Lift at 1-800-248-0892. Q. Do I have to keep air in the springs all the time, and how much pressure do I need? A. Yes, always maintain the recommended minimum air pressure, even when unloaded. This keeps the air springs “in shape” so they move through their normal travel without rubbing or wearing. Minimum air requirements vary with vehicle and load; your instruction manual will give you the recommendations for your vehicle.

Q. How long do air springs last? A. If they are properly installed and maintained with appropriate minimum air pressure, they can last indefinitely. Just check the pressure regularly, or use an On Board Air System to maintain it for you. Q. Can air springs raise or lower my vehicle? A. If you’re asking if conventional air springs can take the place of a lift or lowering kit, the answer is NO. If you’re asking if air springs will cause a normal ride height vehicle to ride higher, the answer is, YES, if you want them to, by adding pressure, but only by an inch or two. If you DO want to lower your vehicle, look into our EasyStreet line of products (page 12). If you have a lowered truck and want to add air springs, look at SlamAir, on page 13. Call Customer Support at 1-800-248-0892 for more information.

AD-570 Air Lift Thrill Ride Poster (15” x 22.5”): FREE

Q. My vehicle rides rough; will adding air make it ride better? A. Yes, but it depends on what is causing the rough ride. Air springs are engineered to regain ride quality lost by carrying heavy loads or from fatigued springs. Our Primary Air systems improve both empty and loaded ride of larger trucks (see page 10 – 11). Q. Can I use air springs with factory overload springs? A. Yes.
