Installation Instructions
******Must be used w/ RideTech shock kit******
1. Raise and support vehicle at a safe and comfortable working height.
2. Support the axle then remove coil spring and shock. Refer to service manual for proper
disassembly procedure. Installing one side at a time will make the installation easier.
3. Apply thread sealant to a 90
degree air fitting and screw it into the
top of the air spring.
4. Screw the mounting pin into top of
the air spring.
5. Place the 4” diameter washer on
top of the frame, above the coil spring
pocket. Raise the air spring up to the
spring pocket with the pin sticking
through the washer. Secure with the
large cotter key.
6. Place the large lower air spring
plate over the lower coil spring
retainer.
7. Pull the piston down out of the air
spring and seat it on the lower coil
spring retainer. The center hub in the
piston should fit inside the retainer.
8. Some retainers may require
trimming to allow the air spring piston
to slide into the retainer.
9. Secure the air spring to the axle
using a 3/8” x 1” bolt, lock washer,
flat washer, and the 2 ½” washer.
10. Inflate the air spring and check
air spring clearance. If the spring
is allowed to rub on anything it will
cause failure, this is not a
warrantable situation.
14. This system will retain the
factory bump stop.
15. Driving height on this air spring is
approximately 8.5” tall, but may
slightly vary to driver preference.
