How To Build an Air Lift 1000 Universal Kit

Can’t find an air spring kit for a coil-sprung vehicle? Air Lift 1000 Universal Air Spring Kits fit almost any open coil spring to provide up to 1,000 lbs. of load-leveling support*. Just take two simple measurements and use the chart below to find the correct kit for your application.

Finding the correct application

Follow the following four simple steps to match your ride up with the perfect custom application:
spring-measurement

  1. Unload your vehicle first, so that you can take the most accurate measurements of your coil springs. This means unhitching the camper, ditching the bike rack, and pulling your cinder block collection out from under the back seat. Once the car is at normal ride height, totally unloaded, then you’re ready for step two.
  2. Take two measurements. Measure the inside height (X) — the available height within the coil spring. Then measure the inside diameter (Y), or the width available inside the coil from side to side at its widest point. (see diagram)
  3. Find the corresponding part number. Input your measurements into the kit finder below. Or use the below chart to find the row that contains the correct inside height and inside diameter, and see which part number lines up with those values. It is better to be slightly undersized than oversized.
