Peugeot Boxer (X244 & X250)

The X244 and X250 kits are rear end assistance kits for the Fiat Ducato, Citroen Jumper and Peugeot Boxer vans. They will fit all motor-homes derived from these vans provided they have the original rear suspension on them and have not been converted to ALKO suspension. If you have ALKO then please call. These kits are fitted in place of the existing bump-stops in addition to the rear suspension in order to improve handling, ride quality, towing, and stability on vans converted into motor-homes, and vans that have been converted or which just need improvement.

Ducato X244 (2002 to 2006)

This is a rear end air suspension kit for the Fiat Ducato X244 van and van derived motor-homes and minibuses. The rear end kit is VERY simple to install using just a few bolts and is fully reversible if required. Inflated via Schrader valves (tyre valves) and nothing extra required to get kit working. OBA kits below are optional extras.

Peugeot Boxer X250 (2006 onwards)

This is a rear end air suspension kit for the Peugeot Boxer X244 van and van derived motor-homes and minibuses. The rear end kit is VERY simple to install using just a few bolts and is fully reversible if required. Inflated via Schrader valves (tyre valves) and nothing extra required to get kit working. OBA kits below are optional extras.

This kit has a maximum lift potential of around 4 inches on most applications which helps enormously with steep driveways, ferry access and even petrol stations. These kits function by recovering the lost suspension motion improve both the ride quality and handling of most vehicles and reduce wallowing, susceptibility to crosswinds and large oncoming traffic as well as control at junctions, roundabouts and emergency maneuvers to avoid obstacles. Can also help with towing or with rear mounted cycle, motorcycle racks and towing assemblies. Most motor-homes should be fitted with air suspension from new as many are riding on the bump-stops.

ALL ABOUT AIR SUSPENSION

What air suspension is, and why you should choose an AirRide kit

The kit comes fully powder coated, with instructions and is fully reversible if required (if you upgrade your vehicle). The kit fixes to the vehicle using 3 bolts on each side and takes only a few hours to install.

AIR MANAGEMENT

Air works best with air management. Find out how to control your air here

Basic kits

If you’re only looking for something simple, we can still provide exactly what you’re after.  If you want air suspension without all the bells and whistles, we offer single-axle bag/bracket or strut kits or basic Schrader (tyre) valve kits with no On-Board Air.

If you want a bit more but still don’t want solenoids or a computer system, you can opt for a Manual Paddle Control kit, which uses four electric-window-style paddles to control your air on each corner of the vehicle.

Low Duty

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.

Standard Duty

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.

WHAT'S IN A MANAGEMENT KIT?

Exactly what you get in the box with each air management kit

Manual Paddle Control (MPC) kit

  • Front and rear air suspension
  • Four manual paddle controls (one for each corner)
  • 100% duty cycle compressor
  • Three-gallon (US) air tank

Computer kit

Computer kits are the easiest kits to install and still super reliable. They include:

  • Front and rear air suspension
  • Auto Pilot V2, AirLift 3P or AccuAir computer controller
  • Three-gallon (US), 200 PSI tank
  • 100% duty cycle compressor

AIRRIDE RANGES FOR YOUR VEHICLE

The types of AirRide kit available for your van. Each one offers something different

AirRide Custom

AirRide Custom is a range of kits that we build to order.

Dunlop kits are load-support kits, meaning they are fitted in addition to your vehicle's existing metal spring.

These kits are only fitted to the rear of a vehicle. They are ideal for balancing out the excessive load at the rear of a van and preventing the rear end from sagging, or lifting it again once it has already sagged.

Dunlop kits are pre-made, not made to order like a Custom kit.

Advantages

AirRide Custom kits:

✅ Can be tailor-made to your vehicle’s exact specifications, meaning they should always be a perfect fit

✅ Can be made for almost any vehicle, no matter how rare

✅ Are made by us, here at AirRide, ensuring the highest-quality standards available

✅ Are designed from the ground up to ensure they work best with your vehicle. For instance, our T5 kits have specially-designed front struts to support a heavier air bag

✅ Offer a really smooth ride and much better handling than standard suspension

Whats in the kit

It’s impossible to say exactly what’s in an AirRide Custom kit because each one is made from scratch to suit your vehicle’s needs!

If you want to know exactly what you’ll be getting, either before or after ordering the kit, call or email us and we’ll be happy to tell you once we know your vehicle and any necessary measurements.

AirRide Custom is available with air management, but can also come with a basic Schrader valve kit. Schrader valve kits cannot be used to control your air from on board the vehicle, instead requiring you to re-inflate your system every month or so at a local garage or petrol station. This works fine with load-support kits but is not recommended for full-suspension kits.

Advantages

Dunlop kits:

✅ Are bolt-on bumpstop replacement, meaning they’re so easy to install any garage should be able to fit it, and you might even be able to install it yourself

✅ Smooth out harsh rides

✅ Lift your Boxer's rear to help overcome grounding issues

✅  Level the front and rear of your Boxer, improving handling and decreasing the effect of side wind by stabilising it

Whats in the kit

Here’s exactly what you get in your kit:

⭐ Two bumpstop-replacement air bags

⭐ Precision-made brackets designed to fit effortlessly on your Boxer

⭐ All the lines and fittings needed to fit the kit to your Boxer

Dunlop kits are available with air management, but can also come with a basic Schrader valve kit. Schrader valve kits cannot be used to control your air from on board the vehicle, instead requiring you to re-inflate your system every month or so at a garage or petrol station. This is not recommended for full air suspension kits, but is fine for use with Dunlop kits, as all Dunlop kits are only fitted to the rear.

 

FRONT END FULL AIR KITS

These kits are used for particularly heavy motorhomes, vans and converted commercial vehicles requiring a little extra support or ground clearance, comfort and the ability to lift and lower the vehicle at the touch of a button. Commonly used by disabled customers these can be fitted in addition to rear end load support kits or with rear end lowering kits (not listed on this page - please email for more info). Commonly fitted to motorhomes, and a simple mechanical direct fit install.
