Originally exclusive to heavy trucks and buses, and more recently found on luxury cars and SUVs, today anyone can get the smooth ride, load leveling capability, and improved handling that can only come from air suspension. No matter what you drive or what you do with your vehicle – haul, tow, cruise, show, or race, we have air suspension components and complete systems that will deliver the ride, stance, and performance you want.

Air suspension systems can be divided into two basic categories: supplemental and replacement. Supplemental air springs are designed to work with your existing coil and leaf springs, to level the vehicle and provide a smooth ride and optimal handling when hauling cargo or towing. Replacement systems are installed in place of your existing suspension components to alter ride height and improve handling; perfect for show cars and performance driving.

When a pickup with OE suspension has a big load in the bed or is towing a trailer, the rear of the truck may squat, with the headlights aimed at the sky. Because the weight is unevenly distributed, handling and braking suffers. Supplemental leaf springs or cargo coils may provide additional load support, but at the cost of decreased ride comfort, and they can’t be adjusted to the load. In contrast, air springs are completely adjustable, so you can level your vehicle for optimal handling, braking and control, and get a comfortable ride. These springs install on top of the leaf springs or axle, or fit inside the coil springs.

To get the most benefit from your air springs, install an on-board air compressor system. We have complete systems that include the compressor, air springs, and everything needed for installation, as well as compressor systems that can be used with any brand air springs. Instead of having to find a source of air when you want to pump up your air springs, with an on-board compressor system you can adjust air pressure, and the load support and level of your truck, with the touch of a button. We offer systems that adjust air springs individually or simultaneously, and with hardwired, wireless, or automatic control.

If you want the low look for your show car, or want to cut lap times at the track, nothing beats an air suspension system. Your OE springs or struts are replaced with infinitely adjustable air springs or struts. If you have a custom cruiser you can slam it but easily raise it up with the touch of a button to clear speed bumps and steep driveways. For performance cars we have struts that come with adjustable progressive rate air springs, and adjustable damping, for ride height adjustment, resistance to body roll and dive, and responsiveness that rivals the best coilover systems, yet provides a comfortable highway ride.

But as beneficial as aftermarket air suspension systems are for hauling heavy loads or performance driving, original equipment systems are not without their problems. OE systems can be complex, and include many parts that fail due to age and wear: air bags deteriorate and get punctured, air lines leak, and compressors burn out from continuous operation trying to keep a leaky system filled. Repairing these defects can be prohibitively expensive so we offer coil spring conversion kits as an affordable alternative. The springs and shocks in these kits are specifically designed for each application; they’ll bolt right on in place of troublesome OE air suspension components and provide a comfortable, maintenance-free ride.

    How to Inspect Your Suspension System
    The very first thing to know about timely suspension system diagnosis is that the stability and steering control of your vehicle and, what is more important, your safety on the road depends on how often you make it. Automotive suspension belongs to one of those car systems that are constantly exposed to high loads and thus are prone to wear and tear. Most specialists recommend inspecting suspension system after every 6,500-7,500 miles or when there are any signs of its breakage.

    How Low Can You Go?
    Lowering is high on the list of many people who want to improve the appearance of their car. If you want to lower your car with the coil springs, then replacing them with lowering springs is the way to go. But what if you want to lower your car and also make it handle better? If that’s your goal then consider coil-over shocks.

Arnott 2785 Air Strut
Product was packaged properly. Once unwrapped, i was surprised as it comes with all new hardware to install. Quality looks far superior and more durable than OEM strut. Installation was slightly difficult due to strut arriving pumped with air. Proper tools and a lift are great help. Couldn't be happier with purchase, searched all over internet and CARiD had the best deal even shipping to Hawaii!
