Air Springs and Air Bag Suspension
Do you ever get the feeling that your truck isn’t driving
as smoothly as it could be? When you add weight to your vehicle,
do you immediately notice a difference in control? Do you
wish you could load up your vehicle and STILL keep that smooth
air suspension kits simply provide you with added support and
better control for an overall smoother, safer ride. Made with
2 ply rubber, these double convoluted air springs (air bag)
can solve many of your everyday towing/hauling problems, such
as vehicle sag, sway and bottoming out.
AIR SPRINGS- #1 ON THE MARKET - NOW WITH LIFETIME WARRANTY
Pacbrake’s truck air bags ( air springs
) allow you to easily level out your truck’s stance for
any towing / hauling situation with the ability to adjust the
amount of air in each (bag) spring. Filling the springs can
be done in two ways, the most standard being our manual fill
kits that provide you with easily accessible fill valves located
near your rear license plate OR the more convenient option would
be adding onboard air to your truck and operating your air suspension
system right from the driver’s seat. Pacbrake air springs
work in addition to your existing suspension, not as a substitution.
It is important to note that by installing an air suspension
kit, your max load capacity (GVWR) does not increase.
Air Springs are designed and manufactured to be the #1 air
suspension choice among consumers.
HOW DO I
ADD ONBOARD AIR FOR EASIER OPERATION?
Adding onboard air to your vehicle is simple.
All it requires is the installation of an air compressor (various
sizes available), an air tank (3 sizes available) and a dash
activation switch w/gauge (various options available).

IF I HAVE UNEVEN
WEIGHT DISTRIBUTION, IS IT EASY TO CUSTOMIZE THE AMOUNT OF AIR IN
you have onboard air operated springs or not, you can easily adjust
each springs air capacity to level out your vehicle. The manual
fill springs are set up so that the fill valves are easily accessible,
usually positioned out the license plate at the rear of the vehicle.
And the onboard air operated springs are simply adjustable with
the switches that are mounted inside the cab of your truck.
SPRINGS REPLACE MY EXISTING SUSPENSION?
No, the air
springs are an addition to your existing suspension, not a substitution.
Kits are easily installed and do not affect your vehicle’s factory
CHOOSE TO INSTALL PACBRAKE’S AIR SUSPENSION KIT, CAN I INCREASE
MY MAXIMUM LOAD CAPACITY?
No. You must
never exceed your GVWR (Gross Vehicle Weight Rating). The air springs
simply provide you with added support and therefore better control
for an overall smoother, safer ride.
THE INSTALLATION TAKE A LONG TIME TO COMPLETE AND HOW MUCH DOES
No. The installation
is fairly simple and can usually be completed within 2 hours. If
installing the kit with an onboard air system, the installation
procedure is a little different and may vary depending on the vehicle
