2. Remove the rear wheels.
II. Strut Removal and Preparation
1. Disconnect the two uppper links from the spindle (Figure 1a)
and remove the rear strut (Figure 1b).
2. Remove the OEM upper mounting plate (Figure 2).
3. Remove the dust shield and discard (Figure 3).
4. Remove the jounce bumper (Figure 4).
5. Cut off the upper portion of the jounce bumper (Figure 5).
6. Remove the upper shock cap and discard (Figure 6).
7. Reinstall the lower portion of the jounce bumper (Figure 7).
8. Repeat steps 1-7 for the other side of the vehicle.
III. Installing the Air Spring Assembly
1. Slide the air spring unit onto the strut (Figure 8).
NOTE: Handle the air spring unit carefully so as to avoid
damaging the o-rings. An o-ring is located in the inner wall of
each upper and lower air spring end cap. If an o-ring is damaged,
use one of the replacement o-rings supplied with this kit. The
upper o-ring is the smaller o-ring.
NOTE: Make sure the piston is pushed all the way down.
2. Reinstall the upper mounting plate (Figure 9).
3. Install the supplied washer and reinstall the OEM retaining nut
4. Reattach the strut assembly into its stock location (Figure 10)
by re-connecting the two upper links to the spindle (Figure 1a).
5. Repeat steps 1-4 for the other side of the vehicle.
6. Finished installation is shown in Figure 11.
IV. Before Operating
1. Check all air line connections and the inflation valve core for
leaks by spraying them with a soapy water solution. Look and
listen for air bubbles. Next, attach a gauge to the system to verify
that no pressure is lost, thus ensuring the system is airtight.
2. Please continue by reading the Post Inspection section.
V. Post Inspection
1. Tighten and visually inspect all hardware after 100 miles.
2. Please continue by reading the Maintenance and Operation
OEM upper mount
VI. Maintenance and Operation:
Failure to maintain correct minimum pressure (or pressure proportional to load) or to avoid
bottoming out, overextension, or rubbing against another component will void the warranty.
By following these steps, vehicle owners should obtain the longest life and best results from their air springs:
1. Never inflate beyond 100 p.s.i.
2. Increase or decrease pressure from the system as necessary to attain optimal ride and handling.
3. The air springs in this kit can provide up to 1000 lbs of additional load carrying support.
4. IMPORTANT: For your safety and to prevent possible damage to your vehicle, do not exceed Maximum Gross
Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR), as indicated by the vehicle manufacturer. Although your air springs are rated at a
maximum inflation pressure of 100 p.s.i., the air pressure actually needed is dependant on your load and GVWR,
which may be less than 100 p.s.i. Check your vehicle owners manual and do not exceed the maximum load listed
for your vehicle.
5. Should it become necessary to raise the vehicle by the frame or do any service work, make sure the system is at
minimum pressure (5 p.s.i.) for safety and to reduce the tension on the suspension/brake components. Check that
the front lower brackets nest properly in the lower A-arm when servicing is complete. Do this before operating the
