Take the time to read this and Learn about your Airstruts. It will save you a lot of time and money. Our Airstruts come just the way you see them in the pictures below, with a new air strut that has a shaft 35% larger than most factory struts and are 100% direct bolton. We own Patent 6,382,602 for Airstrut conversions, so we certainly know how to build them. Be careful if you are buying Airstruts from anyone else but us; the price might be lower, but you will get less for your money, and it WILL NOT be 100% bolton. They will sell you a strut that is “Universal” and they certainly will not tell you that ours is Factory Bolt on. Airlift Company( Easy Street) is one of these Companies, and Universal Air is another. If you do not see your vehicle listed, We still have it! just email me: firstname.lastname@example.org and I will give you the information. Another big mistake is to buy an airstrut from others that install a bag that is too small in diameter, like a #800 or #110//9000 type bag... Click here to learn more>>>
I do not see my vehicle listed. What should i do? We have it. Just email me... email@example.com
How long does it take to install my kit, and what should i pay? Be careful. Inexperienced installers will probably overcharge you for the learning curve. With Air Struts, you simply take out old strut and bolt new one in exact same place. Instructions>> Bags & Brackets require you to removed Coilsprings and replace the Coil with Bags & Brackets. Air Management can be extremely costly if you do not purchase Plug & Play. Plug & Play requires no plumbing except for running the airlines to each corner. Installers can spend 2-3 days chasing down wiring, plumbing, leaks. Be smart, buy ONLY PLUG & PLAY Install yourself, or get a FIRM quote from an installer before proceeding.
What happens if I am driving and lose Air Pressure? How long do Airsprings last? Airsprings are not anything new. Used on Lincolns, Fords, Cadillacs, Mercedes Benz, BMW for many years. Check valves should be installed between the valve & each airspring, so that if pressure is lost in the system, bags will still be fully inflated. If one bag goes down, it only goes down 2-3 ” for normal installs you can continue driving. Chances of a bag blowing are next to zero... Every Kenworth & Mac Truck on the highway has airspring suspension. They outlast the life of the vehicle so long as you make sure they do not come into contact with any bodypart during there travel. If anything comes into contact, it is installer error, be sure to verify clearance. If your kit does not have bag check valves, between valve and the bag go to this link >>>>>>>>>
What should I use for Air Management? Don’t Pennypinch on air Management. Either start out with the simplest Schrader Valve Manual Fill, or get the Plug & Play. While it might sound like it costs less to assemble 100 fittings,valves,wiring, it DOES NOT. Plug & Play is the only way to go.
How long will it take my kit to ship? First, we never charge your card until we ship it. It usually takes 48hrs to ship any kit that requires an Airstrut. Most others are shipped within 24hrs unless it is a special build.

I am an experienced installer and want MAXIMUM drop......You control maximum drop by giving us the measurements , or you can choose to weld your own Clevis on at maximum drop. If you choose this option, you MUST have a Certified TIG welder weld the bottom ring to your struts. The height of your tires limits the amount of drop you can achieve. It is all up to you
Should I buy Air Shocks to replace my coilsprings, or bags & brackets? Air shocks look pretty, but beware... While we offer both, Air Shocks can only compress to 9.5”, Bags & Brackets can compress to a maximum of 2.8”, so you be the Judge. Do you want more travel, or just want to be pretty. Not to mention Air Shocks cost about double.

BAGS/BRACKETS INSTALL Always fit LARGEST bag possible, even if you have to trim, or relocate a ShockAbsorber. Most CoilSpring applications requires a shock absorber relocation kit. Original shocks are aprox 3-4” too long. If you do not replace them, they will bottom out & you will wonder why your vehicle rides so rough.Heavier the frontend (or rear) more air volume it takes to lift. Larger the bag diameter, the less psi to lift. An example would be the front of a big-block Chevy. It WILL NOT lift with a 6.25” diameter bag, and you must trim the frame spring pockets to fit a larger bag. A even better optionis to go to a 8.50” diameter bag using spring-pocket Eliminators.. Now it will ride like a car... Bags/Brackets are used mostly on the rear of a car when leafsprings are not present. It is a very straightforward install requiring minor welding. Here is how it works...1- Remove the factory coilsprings, which will be replaced with the airspring. Remove any bumpstop if it interferes. The height (and placement) of the brackets determine the ride height and each of you will have a different interpretaion of the ride height you desire. The shorter the bracket the lower the ride height. You get the idea.2- Only tack-weld the bracket in place until you have put the vehicle thru its’ travel and are satisfied. Don’t worry, you can always go back to coilsprings
