Yes: 2 / No: 1

Engineered as an add-on helper spring for coil spring suspensions, AirLift 1000 are ideal for the rear coil springs of many passenger cars and some SUV's, such as Grand Cherokees, that tow or carry light to medium loads. Kits are also available for front coil spring vehicles such as trucks, SUVs, and motorhomes. AirLift 1000 features an easy do-it-yourself installation with simple hand tools.


Specific Uses:
Improves muscle car traction for drag racing.
Improves poor handling and braking.
Replaces OEM front air springs on P-30 motorhome/commercial chassis.
Excellent front end support for snowplows, winches etc.
Features and Benefits of AirLift 1000:
Provides a more stable ride and improves poor handling and braking.
Fits open coil springs in vehicle front or rear.
Up to 1000 lbs. of leveling capacity. (NOTE: Never exceed the manufacturer's recommended GVWR).
Air adjustablity allows you to customize the ride you want.
Reduces roll, sway, and bottoming out.
Tough molded polyurethane.
Each kit is complete with air springs, air lines, fittings, mounting hardware, and a detailed installation manual.
Two year limited warranty.

Air Lift 1000 is made from a very durable polyurethane material and is inserted into the vehicle's stock coil springs. When filled with air, it increases the spring rate, or ability to support a load. Because of its design, Air Lift 1000 products are best stated as load support products, rather than lifting products.

The Air Lift 1000 products function much different from Super Duty and Ride Control kits. When charged with air the bag will grow in all directions much like blowing up a balloon. Controlling the growth requires a coil spring to hold it into shape and funnel its spring energy into its length. The bag's spring rate comes from compressing its length and also from the bag being wedged in between the coils of the spring. Over inflating the bag can cause the wedging to become too severe and therefore causing the material to thin, which in turn, causes a decrease in spring rate and a premature failure.

Price: $1.00
Pros: levels out the Jeep; handles weight of bumpers and winch; allows 33's to fit
Cons: it would be nice if it lifted it another inch
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I installed springs from an Unlimited tow package into my two-door after adding 33's, bumpers, and winch. Worked great.

Comments: Added this kit load controller II to the 4 inch superlift for a total of 6" of lift, the airride 1000 did have to be midified to fit, due to the lack of front pucks, but this was fixed by cutting a rubber malet in half and bolting it in

AirLift AirLift 1000 JGC WJ
Price: $75.00
Pros: Works as Advertised
Cons: Cheap Hardware
Recommended? No

Comments: I installed the AirLift 1000 air bags in my rear coils last night to assist in regular towing. The air hose is low-temp hose despite needing to travel past the exhaust. A poor quality exhaust shield is included in the kit along with hose clamps for installation. The hardware (hose clamps) are very poor quality and brittle. Either purchase replacement clamps before you install or be very careful during the installation not to crack your hose clamps. The pressure line T fitting is also cheap plastic and could be easily damaged if extreme care is not taken during installation and to ensure it is not able to rub on any surfaces once installed. Installation was fairly easy (2.5 hrs w/o lift or air tools) and straight forward. For the price charged, the hardware and pressure hose in this kit should be of higher quality and more durable. On the positive side, it appears there are no leaks (surprising given the poor quality hose clamps provided) and it lifts the rear as advertised. This should help prevent spring fatigue while towing. I doubt I would purchase this kit again given the quality of the hardware if a better kit was available from another manufacturer.
