For quicker air spring reaction, the Quick Shot moves air nearly four times as fast as the Load Controller II system. Its heavy duty .81 cfm and 33% duty cycle compressor (at 100 PSI) and 2½ gallon reserve tank provide plenty of air when you want it. An in-dash control panel makes it easy to monitor and adjust your air springs; and the convenient easy-connect auxiliary air line makes air readily available for adjusting tires and filing air toys.

Purchase a dual path/sensor model (kit number 25572) for uneven loads that need adjustment from one side of the vehicle to the other or for more advanced leveling capability. You can either control two air springs independently (for side-to-side leveling) or you can split the line to control a full set of four air springs, two at a time (side-to-side or front-to-rear).

Air suspension is powered by an electric air pump or compressor. We review all the air suspension parts you need! This pump pressurizes the air, using compressed air as a spring. Truck Air suspension replaces conventional steel springs. Browse our reviews of air bag suspension systems today! If the engine is left off for an extended period, the Truck will settle to the ground and give your Truck a true low-rider appearance. The purpose of air suspension parts is to provide smooth ride quality. Some air suspension kits have the ability to adjust self-leveling springs from soft to hard. By upgrading your Truck Stock Suspension to the Truck Air Suspension you can achieve increase both comfort and load capacity simultaneously. We review all the Truck Air Suspension Kits, air bag suspension, and Components: Chassis Components, Management Components such as Air Compressors, Air Valves, Air Tanks, Air Gauges; Air Lift & Air Assist Load Leveling Kits and provide all the instructions you need to get your Air Suspension system up and running smoothly. Air Ride suspension is a truly unique modification that only a few are brave enough to tackle.

Air suspension kits are a state of the art style of suspension setup. To date, it truly is the only way to get radically custom suspension, hopping capabilities, car show stances and poses, while maintaining a relatively ‘normal’ ride down the road (as opposed to hydraulics). Air suspension kits can also be used on a variety of trucks and SUVs as a beneficial alternative to the standard issue shock and spring combination used by most OEM manufacturers. The kits can be used as auto-leveling (depending on settings) or as something as totally radical to make your car or truck do jumping jacks in the parking lot.

Air ride suspension utilizes a complex system of components when installed correctly on a vehicle. Air suspension kits include everything needed to get you “on the ground” or “up in the air”. Air suspension kits include: pumps, compressor, struts, hoses, fittings, mounting hardware, etc. Each system allows you to have total control of your handling, ride quality and the stance of your liking. Air suspension kits come with everything you need to get your car sitting on the ground or hopping up and down; whichever you prefer. Kiss those wheel gaps goodbye with new air ride kits!

Whether you like to ‘pancake’ your ride upon shut off, take turns on three wheels or just bounce to impress the kids – air suspension kits are definitely a one of kind setup for all to enjoy. When your car or truck is equipped with a ‘sport’ or lowered suspension, your vehicle’s stance is limited to a single setting. If you have an “adjustable suspension” or even a coilovers setup; you still have to crawl on the ground to raise or lower your vehicle. The beauty of air ride kits is that all of the controls are at your fingertips. You can adjust ride height, set custom settings and even train your car to do “tricks” with the flip of a switch.
