A compressor isn't required, but it is convenient! An On-Board Air Compressor System allows you to inflate and deflate your air springs on-the-go. Compressors remove the hassle of pulling over or searching for service stations with air pumps. With our onboard compressor system, all adjustments are automatic and made with the touch of a button- all while driving!
