New Air Bag stock

After struggling over the past few months to keep bags in stock due to high demand we now have pallets of bags on the shelf for around 90% of all bags we supply. These can be purchased via the shop but if you need advice please feel free to email office@airride.co.uk.

Every day we are asked to supply replacement bags for vehicles due to airbag failure (usually after 5-15 years in service). If you need replacement air bags then please measure the bag, and send some digital pictures of the bag (still on the vehicle if necessary), in the first instance. From this we should be able to advise as you should note part numbers are almost entirely useless and we generally supply only current technology for bags.

For replacement of worn out or damaged airbags it is essential for safety reasons to replace them in pairs. This is true of metal springs true but doubly so for airbags as technology has moved on considerably over the past few years with spring rates appropriate for vehicles being used.

Airbag Selection added to Shop to buy

We have just finished adding the bulk of our commonly used airbags (also called air springs or air bags or rubber bellows) to our shop where they can be purchased. These are at the heart of any air suspension conversion. The Airbag supports the weight of the vehicle and is responsible for the great ride and the ability to lift or drop the vehicle.
Almost every day I am approached by someone wanting to replace a worn out airbag. Usual life expectancy is probably greater than a metal coil or leaf spring at about 5-10 years with negligible deterioration is ride quality – its the air that supports the vehicle and not the rubber! Metal springs are softer after only a few years.

If you are replacing an existing spring then our end caps are aluminium to resist rust, and have multiple fittings to assist if you are upgrading from Firestone, Dunlop or other old style airbags. Please email pictures and dimensions if you need advice – its rarely as simple as a part number when replacing airbags.

VW T5 Low and Standard rear ends

We have just revised and updated the VW TRansporter T5 Van, Minibus and Motor Home rear end air conversions. We now offer a standard height full air rear end conversion, a super low full air rear end conversion and for 2wd only a support only conversion (sometimes called semi-air). Updated info and pictures will be listed shortly, but all 3 kits are £648.75 supplied plus £240 if fitting is required.

We also have a revised softer front end conversion for these superb vans which provides a much softer ride, than our previous sporty conversion. Front struts from £1300 per pair.

Air suspension for ALL vehicles.

 Mercedes CE fitted with airride air suspension in FBSS configuration 

Here at airride.co.uk we are happy to say that we can fit air suspension to ANY vehicle weather that be a motorcycle, van, minibus, motorhome, or car. Kits can be fitted for load support, stability, disabled access, delicate load protection, height adjustment or customised vehicles in low rider configuration. We are probably the most experienced installers of air suspension to such a wide range that you will be able to find anywhere in the country.

We are happy to supply kits for almost any vehicle (Ambulance spec is usually fitted by us only and not supplied) or to carry out the full install at our Norfolk premises.

T5 Video

We have added a new T5 driving video to the video section of the site (available from the button at the top of every page) and will be adding some more soon including more info on the T5 kit.

We do not usually stock full suspension kits on the shelf. They are made specifically for you once you place your order. This can take anywhere from a few days for common items to 90 days for unusual or complicated items or items which have a waiting list. If you require a more accurate indication then this can be provided by email and will be provided once any order is placed in any event.
