The Transporter T4 van is the shape of VW Transporter made and sold from 1990-2003.Later comes the T5 (see separate page), and before it comes the Type 2 (T3). Current model transporter is the T6. We offer air suspension for all. The transporter van is well catered for at AirRide with both front and rear kits. This page is for the VW T4 van.

No Secret Squirrel from this air specialist.Please remember that we don’t do air suspension as an “add on” to an existing business – we specialise. We didn’t go out and get a dealership from another company to tack onto our activities, leaving us with no idea how to fit the products or develop new items. We fit
air. We design air. We manufacture air. We sell air. If you want air
for your T4 – come to a company specialising in air as its sole
activity.All AirRide conversions retain the Anti-Roll-Bars, and brake
sensors, and brake hose guides. The also don’t require you to cut away chunks of your hub, or use car shocks or tiny car airbags to get it lower. These kits are designed for comfort and road use. To remove these would be madness, would be dangerous, and would also in our opinion be illegal. We have full kits for both the front and the rear of the van.


The front end of the T4 Transporter has an unusual torsion bar
suspension. Because of this many will tell you it cannot be run on
air suspension. This is not true. We have been installing air suspension onto cars, vans and motor-homes with torsion bars for well over 10 years. Torsion bars have never been a very good suspension medium but they are cheap and compact. 15 years’ experience installing air suspension in combination with a torsion bar never works particularly well.

The front end is a complex install and because of that it is classified as an advanced fit and definitely not for the beginner. The front conversion includes all the brackets you need (four of per side) which allow an airbag to be mounted and the shock relocated. This must be welded into place – this is not a bolt on conversion and therefore not a 5 minute job. We advise new ball joints when being fitted. The front end kit is offered in two options – either just the bags and brackets, or with the brackets pre-installed on new arms and reconditioned upper mounts. Options on the drop down lists below.

 


VW Transporter T4 Van Basic Rear End Kit

Price: £648.75

This is a rear end air suspension kit for the VW Transporter T4 Van. The rear end kit is VERY simple to install using just 4 bolts each side (not included)  and is fully reversible if required. The basic kit includes only the bags and brackets (no bolts, valves or line) but the fixed management kit does include these items. Fixed basic kits are used on motorhome conversions with fixed loads and inflated via Schrader valves (tyre valves) and nothing extra required to get kit working. OBA kits below are optional extras and can be selected from the drop down list or purchased later as an add on. People building custom low riders vehicles use different kits from those building motorhomes and wanting to provide load support. Thus we try and make all options available so people can make the kit meet their own needs.

On Board Air Kit – Low Duty

 
Price: £495.00

For the ultimate in versatility the use of an On Board Air (OBA) supply gives the ability to lift and drop the vehicle at the touch of a button (including on the move). All basic kits come with Schrader valves (tyre valves) meaning that you can inflate the system anywhere you can inflate a tyre. This is fine for assistance kits as with big vans and motor-homes using “assistance” kits but for those using airbags as the sole suspension (Vito/T4/T5) and OBA kit allows adjustment for all variations of road, weather and load conditions.
This is the Low Duty OBA kit for irregular use. The compressor is rated at 15% duty cycle at 100 psi, and a maximum of 120 psi (bag max rating 100 psi). Appropriate pressure switch relay fittings and a small tank are included for instant adjustment.


On Board Air Kit – Standard Duty

 
Price: £695.00

For the ultimate in versatility the use of an On Board Air (OBA) supply gives the ability to lift and drop the vehicle at the touch of a button (including on the move). All basic kits come with Schrader valves (tyre valves) meaning that you can inflate the system anywhere you can inflate a tyre. This is fine for assistance kits as with big vans and motor-homes using “assistance” kits but for those using airbags as the sole suspension (Vito/T4/T5) and OBA kit allows adjustment for all variations of road, weather and load conditions.
This is the Standard Duty OBA kit for daily use. The compressor is rated at 100% duty cycle at 100 psi, and a maximum of 200 psi (bag max rating 100 psi). Appropriate pressure switch relay fittings and a small tank are included for instant adjustment.


VW T4 Transporter Front Conversion Kits

 
Price: £995.00
Vw T4 Transporter front air suspensionThe front end is a complex install. The front includes separate bags – this is not a strut like the T5. The basic kits include an inflation valve kit (no management system), and also with the OBA kits above. Note – two OBA kits are not a good way to spend your money – buy a complete kit will be cheaper.
The T4 kit will lower your vehicle to the lowest setting available on the torsion bars and lift from that point. The ride quality is not as good as the T5 or full air suspension conversions. It is a little choppy and a little sporty but if you want the ability to lift and drop at the press of a button this can be achieved. The conversion also gets a little close to things and very careful installation is required to ensure a safe and reliable conversion.

VW T4 Transporter Full air suspension conversion kit

 
Price: £1,643.75

The full 4 wheel air suspension conversion kit for the VW T4 Transporter fits all vehicles from 1990-2003 . The kit is a simple bolt on conversion at the rear requiring only a few holes to be drilled, and can be reversed later if you trade your vehicle in (or lease it) and wish to take the kit to a newer van later. This is not so for the front which is more complex. Only the highest quality components are used throughout, and are chosen for reliability over any other factor. The basic non management kit is just the front strut and rear bag kit without any compressor, controller, or management. Various options are available and the most popular is the basic kit which includes a manual controller. Other options include remotes, solenoids and computers. A really basic full air kit with non management is also available. Twin tanks and twin compressors are also available as additional options. Please ask if you are not sure of your requirements. Non management kits are commonly used on motorhome conversions.
