New Management Video

One question motorhome and van customers always ask is, 'What is the difference between the main air management/ On-Board Air systems?'

We've hopefully answered that question in this video, by illustrating the most common ones, including Schrader valves, Schrader valves with gauges, non-tank compressor systems and tank/digital systems.

Soon, we will be adding a video to cover the main ones for cars too, but would be happy to hear from customers wanting to see more of the products - let us know what you want to see.

Special Offer on Ducato Leaf-Spring Kits

Ducato X250 £150 Discount

We currently have a very special, limited offer on our most popular Dunlop air suspension kit: The Fiat Ducato X250 (2006 to current) leaf-spring conversion.

You can get this kit right now for £150 (around 15%) off its normal price but this is only while our current stocks last so buy now to avoid disappointment! The normal price is £975 for the Economy Duty On-Board Air (OBA) Kit, but with this offer it is just £825 including VAT and mainland UK postage and packaging.

The Economy Duty On-Board Air Kit has all the advantages of an air supply on the vehicle, meaning you can adjust your van or motor home directly from the cab, but does not have an air tank for instant control as with the Standard OBA kit. Nonetheless, either kit will improve your ride quality, handling and ground clearance and adjust for different loads, drivers, roads or even different weather conditions.

This kit also fits the 2006-onward models of the Citreon Jumper, Citreon Relay and Peugeot Boxer.

Please e-mail or call for specific terms and to claim your discounted kit.

When there is no kit for your vehicle… There is still a kit for your vehicle!

When you have searched Google for hours, trawled dozens of websites, sent countless e-mails and still not found a kit for your vehicle, you may have ended up at AirRide because we have a reputation for providing kits for any vehicle.

If a vehicle has suspension, it can generally be converted to air suspension. Some vehicles are more difficult than others to convert but pretty much any vehicle can have air.

Quite a lot of vehicles can have custom brackets, thanks to our bespoke bracket-building service - as long as we have just a few dimensions - and because we have our own in-house fabricating, blasting and powder-coating equipment we can build items on a one-off basis.

And, for those with a bit of fabricating experience/ability/equipment we can supply flat-pack bracket sets for you to weld yourself, and if your vehicle needs either a Chapman or McPherson strut then these universal struts might be just what you need.

Whatever your air suspension needs, AirRide can help!

New Classic Mini Version 3 kit

Bolt on Air Suspension Conversion

AirRide first converted a classic mini to air suspension about 15 years ago, and introduced a kit for the classic Mini well over ten years ago. The Mini is an unusual car with unusual suspension. As such installing air onto the Mini was never a straightforward job. Minor modifications to the front brake hoses, fuel tank and some rear end welding was always required as part of the install. For some time we have been working on a new bolt-on kit for the classic Mini and will be launching the kit very soon. Please check back for the latest information as we get ready to launch the new product.
