Air Spring

Air Spring is another word for Airbag. Here at AirRide we stock many bags and can obtain a vast amount (in the tens of thousands) so please do let us know if your needs are not listed. Single, Double and Triple Convoluted. Bags are identified by their diameter as this is the most significant factor, both in terms of fitting a gap on the vehicle and also the load that can be accommodated. Height is a secondary factor as it can be designed within the bracket.

The term Spring is technically the correct term for what is very commonly called an air bag because it has the function of a spring. This is different to the function of a damper (commonly called a shock or shocker). When designing air suspension systems the damper must be retained and is not replaced by the air spring.

We sell a vast range of Air Bags for vehicle suspensions. Although traditionally called air bags, airbags or air bellows, the correct term is air spring (although these terms are also used to describe just the rubber bellows element with its end plates). The air pressure inflates the bellows, and raises the chassis from the axle.
