From the Manufacturer
Air Lift adjustable air helper springs level your load, and give your truck, van, or SUV a safer, more comfortable ride. Air springs are easy to install between your existing springs and the vehicle frame. Just add air when towing or hauling a heavy load, and reduce air pressure when unloaded; they are fully adjustable for a great ride. Air Lift air springs eliminate sag, sway, and bottoming out. They are made with rugged, durable components for long, reliable service.
Air Lift RideControl kits fit many of our most popular customer vehicles with leaf springs, including ½ ton and mini pickups, full-size and mini vans, and SUVs.
Application Information This RideControl kit, number 59551, fits the 2002 to 2008 Dodge Ram 1500 1/2 ton pickup, 2-and 4-wheel drive (requires 6" between tire and frame). This kit can be easily installed in around 2 hours.
RideControl Many of today's most popular light-to-medium duty trucks, vans, and SUVs are built for a more comfortable, car-like ride. That's fine when the vehicle is lightly loaded. But add a trailer, or all the things people haul for work and pleasure, and the vehicle sags and the ride suffers. Fully adjustable, RideControl kits keep your truck, van, or SUV level and riding comfortably with no load, loaded, or towing on any road condition. Air adjustable from 5 to 100 PSI, Air Lift RideControl air helper springs have up to 2,000 pounds of leveling capacity, right up to the manufacturer's recommended Gross Vehicle Weight Rating. Your RideControl kit also includes quick connecting, easy-to-use air fittings. All kits are engineered to be easy to install and come with Air Lift's exclusive alignment tool and a fully illustrated instruction manual.
Why Air? Factory suspensions must compromise between ride comfort and load hauling capacity. Soft factory suspensions can't carry heavy loads, and heavy steel springs ride rough, especially when the vehicle is unloaded. Only air springs can support your heavy loads and provide a great ride. Air Lift adjustable air springs solve these common problems by allowing you to tune your suspension under all load and road conditions. Just add air when towing or hauling and then remove air for a softer ride when unloaded.
Eliminate these common load and towing problems for good when you use Air Lift air springs:
Sag – Proper weight distribution to all tires improves steering, braking and tire wear. This is especially important while towing: adjust the air springs to accept the tongue weight of the trailer or other heavy loads.
Headlight aim – Only level and stable vehicles provide safe and proper headlight aiming – critical for night driving safety.
Rough ride – Air Lift's progressive spring rate soaks up bumps, keeping tires on the road for better handling.
Bottoming out – Air Lift springs restore normal ride height when heavily loaded or towing, reducing suspension wear and eliminating crashing on bumps.
Sway and body roll – Air springs increase spring rate and vastly improve vehicle stability. When towing trailers, the air springs permit precise vehicle height adjustment for exact alignment, reducing trailer sway. Less roll and sway means a safer and more comfortable ride.
Porpoising – Pickup trucks, even those that don't squat when loaded, can begin to "porpoise" vertically when towing heavy trailers. Progressive rate air springs dramatically reduce this problem for a safer, more comfortable ride.
Suggested Accessories For maximum convenience and leveling on-the-go, nothing beats an Air Lift on board air compressor system. Automatic or dash-mounted, it quickly adjusts your vehicle for changes in load or road conditions. Air Lift compressor systems are the most advanced in the industry and work with all brands of air springs.
