If your load varies you need soft suspension when you don't carry a load and heavy suspension when you do have a load. Cant manage that with heavier leaf springs. The only real way to achieve this is with air bags just like those in trucks and buses. This kit suits Std to 2 Lift Kit. Bolt on - no welding.
With a BOSS Air Bag Load Assist kit you can run them deflated when you are running light weight without a load. Then just pump them up when you load up. The heavier the load the more air you can apply. These will safely load up to 150 psi and carry 1.5t per bag = 3t.
What lots of customers do is take a leaf or 2 out of their rear leaf pack. This softens up the ride to softer than standard. Then run a few pounds to suit your liking in the bags.
Now you are running on air, even without a load. It's OK to run air in the bags all of the time. And they can be run flat although ideally they need a few pounds for self preservation.Air Bags x 2 (1 for each side). Air Fittings for air lines. Easy to follow instructions with pics.
Essentially you can lift the rear of the vehicle with air bags to level when otherwise sagging in the rear. You can avoid your headlights blinding oncoming drivers when your rear end sags. Shocks, tyres and leaf springs will last longer too. These compliment what you already have. We are not replacing anything, just adding to the car.The steel brackets are very heavy duty. You dont always get what you pay for. One of the more expensive brands is known for its brackets falling over to one side and breaking off the air fitting. That tends to happen in the middle of a big trip and makes for a very frustrating experience. We saw this as an opportunity to bring a heavier duty kit to market and if we matched their prices we would only be ripping you off. Why pay for a brand name?
The steel brackets are laser cut, mig welded and anodised for rust prevention. The air bags are tried and trested 5mm thick rubber double convoluted multi-ply. BOSS kits have been around for over 10 years and in that time literally thousands have been fitted. We sell to mining and heavy commercial operators, agricultural contractors and farmers, tradies, fishermen, campers, tourers and people who tow vans, trailers and floats.
Here's how easy they are to fit - anyone can do this.. Bolt up air bag to top and bottom mounts. Jack up and support weight of car's chassis (You can leave wheels on the ground).
Remove Bump Stop from Chassis and bolt top mount to Bump Stop Bracket. Loosen "U" bolts clamping rear leaf pack to rear axle. Slide bottom mount under "U" bolt then tighten "U" Bolts. Attach air fitting to bag plate and run air lines to somewhere handy. That's all there is to it.
Any old air compressor will pump these up. Could be at a gas station, a workshop compressor or a 12V cig lighter compressor.
It's really cool to mount a compressor and air tank on board as well as an inflation kit so you can adjust your air bags with the flick of a switch.
