Default Air Lift

I installed one about 6 months ago, family complained about the ride, I now have 0 air in the bags, I know it is not good on the bags, but I will take the chance, the ride is now back to normal and hopefully they will be there when needed.

I'll be ordering it shortly.
Just curious as to why members run them at different psi. That's all

Just installed the kit on my dad's '12 with the two inch spacers in the front. Running the truck at 15psi and completely leveled. Looks very good and handles like stock. He's using the bags for his large camper trailer.

I have the kit installed and I love it. I don't encourage this at all...but...with my camper I am maxed out to the truck capacity (i know, i know, already looking to trade for a 3500) but for now I am sitting at the 1500's limit and the air 1000's help a ton! When the trailer is on the truck without the Weight Distribution hitch, i inflate the bags to 25-27 psi and the trucks sits nice and level! Worth the 90$ and then some!

I put them in the 2nd day after I bought the truck. I put the truck on jackstands and then let the axle down to make the install nice and easy. I used a heat gun on the bags to make them squeeze up between the springs a bit easier too.








I run about 25lbs of air when towing my trailer ( about 5,000lbs) and its sits nice and level.
I run about 5lbs of air when empty.

It was around $80. On the cheap its the way to go...I highly recommend it.
For a bit more money the TLC system is pretty sweet looking. Fullsize airbags and with an air compressor to raise or lower would be nice.

Nice Install pics Leftcoast! I went the lazy way... I just jacked up the rear end by setting my floorjack under the hitch and just lifted enough to take pressure off the coils, then I squeezed in the bags...this part went pretty smooth...running the lines was a different story, i found there wasn't much room to work with the fender wells. But all in all it took me less than an hour to complete the job! No inboard compressor for me as well, I just pump them up with my shop compressor. I inflate them on camping weekends and then drop the psi's to 5 when not towing! Great product... really stabilizes the rear end!

Can't see why not. If its just a spacer on top of the spring then the spring would be the original size....right? If it has a hole in the center of it , that would make the install nice and easy, otherwise you would just have to drill one in the middle of that spacer.
