Airbags or Airsprings are used in air suspension to take place of the load bearing part of the suspension. Parts like coils springs, leaFIR and torsions often are replaced or assisted by airbags to improve ride quality,load capacity or to have full adjustability for show purposes. Most vehicles due to available room and load capacity are assigned general applications as for what components can be used to add air suspension to the vehicle.Depending on the make and model of your car will most likely determine if air bags, air barckets, or air cylinders will be needed.

Having the proper combination on your vehicle can mean the difference of being stranded on the side of the road or working on your air system on a weekly basis and having trouble free worriless and dependable air suspension.

Air suspension general replacement guide is as follows Coils with shocks mounted through them are generally replaced by airbags and brackets with the shock being relocated outside to the lower control arm and the frame rail. Leaf springs are generally replaced by a 4-link with the air bags being mounted to brackets that are mounted to the axle and frame rail or cross member. Torsions are generally replaced by either a upper control arm and bracket combo that make the upper control arm the load bearing part of the suspension or the front drive axles are removed and the airbags and brackets mount on the lower control arm and on the frame rail in place of the shock mount. shocks are relocated to the outside of the lower arm and onto the frame rail in both cases. Coil over shocks are generally replaced by an air bag over shock also known as a "airshock" or cylinders and brackets on imports. Macpherson struts are generally replaced by air struts and in most cases are just a direct bolt in replacement.
