Front and Rear Axle Conversion

This is a universal kit for those cars without a dedicated kit. It is commonly used on classic cars for which the range of kits is somewhere between very limited and non-existent.


Each kit is put together following provision of vehicle details and will include all the components that we would use if the vehicle came to us for an install. It should be understood that component inclusion will vary from vehicle to vehicle. This kit will include brackets and bags, and plates as deemed required by our technical staff. How close this gets you will vary from vehicle to vehicle but is usually around 70-90%. There will be fabrication and drilling and sometimes welding required. This welding is not usually on the vehicle and is usually on the brackets – i.e. it can be done on a bench. This kit is rated as difficult to install and certainly far more time consuming than most.

Chapman/McPherson Strut

For many vehicles we use a conversion bag that will fit to most struts with pressure tubes up to around 53mm. It is easily fitted to most struts and works well on vehicles up to around 1300-1400Kg (varies by many factors – this is for guidance only). Metal parts to convert the strut are included. Usually fitted to the front but could be fitted to the rear subject to space (Bag is 6 inches in diameter and needs 7 inches minimum diameter of free space).

For other applications we sometimes use Boss or ALP universal struts – listed elsewhere on this site under “Universal” : Universal Product Section

Bag Brackets Universal

Where the spring and shock are separate on the vehicle you need a bracket to mount the bags. These can either be pre-fabricated brackets (which will never be a direct fit) or a flat pack plate/tube kit requiring welding.

Dampers are not included.

Rear Leaf Spring

Rear leaf spring conversions to full air suspension will usually require a 4 link, triangulated, 4 link parallel or 5 link conversion kit. This includes the bars required which must be welded in.

Torsion Bars

These kits are not designed to replace torsion bars – contact us if you have such an application.

Front Leaf Springs

These kits are not designed to replace front leaf springs – contact us if you have such an application.


Suspension welding needs high quality heavy duty welding. If you are not confident to undertake that welding then you can bolt or tack together pieces and take them to a local fabrication company for you or else you can bolt or tack them together and return your brackets to us for welding and even powder coating if needed.

Product Finish

Because this product is designed to be cut/welded/drilled etc. it is not finished in powder coating as many of our products are. It is supplied either bare or else in grey or black transit primer.


Bags vary by application but are usually single convoluted, double convoluted or reversible sleeve and can vary between front axle and rear axle.


Car kits can be supplied with or without air management, although going without isn’t advisable if you have air on all four corners of your vehicle.

Air management allows you to get the very best from your kit at all times. It allows the ride height to be adjusted for road, weather and load conditions, while also giving you a street-skimming stance when the time is right.

We have four main management options for cars at AirRide. Read on to find out more:

No compressor, no tank

You can have a car kit with no air management system, but this is not recommended. With this option you will receive the air bags, brackets and struts required for a basic air suspension system, but no compressor or tank, as without some form of control system the compressor and tank would not be able to function correctly.

Manual Paddle Control (MPC)

MPC is controlled by four buttons, one for each air bag. These buttons act like electric-window switches, meaning you can either raise or lower the amount of pressure in each air bag by pressing up and down on each switch. The switches will normally fit somewhere on your dashboard.

MPC comes with an aluminium, 100% duty cycle compressor with up to 200 PSI and an air tank, so you can adjust your ride height whenever you wish (as long as it’s safe). It also comes with twin gauges and a tank gauge.

Solenoid control kit

Solenoid kits are controlled in the same way as an MPC kit, with four electric window-style buttons. However, solenoids act much faster than manual controls.

You can get either standard or advanced solenoids from AirRide. Advanced solenoids run much faster than the standard ones and can be installed a lot easier, as the come in blocks of two, rather than one.

Our solenoid kit comes with a 100% duty cycle compressor and tank for instant adjustment, as well as twin gauges and a tank gauge.

Digital computer system

The Air Lift 3P computer system electronically controls the amount of pressure in each air bag. This can be controlled either with a wired controller or a phone app. You can also set up to five pre-set heights, meaning you can slam or raise your car with just a single touch. The computer will also automatically alter your height to allow for road conditions. This is also the easiest system to install, meaning you’ll save money on installation, as compared to the MPC kit or solenoid kits.

The computer system also comes with an aluminium 100% duty cycle compressor with up to 200 PSI and an air tank, allowing for constant adjustment.

Other options

If you would prefer an air management system other to those listed, please feel free to call or e-mail us. We are happy to discuss your personal requirements and make sure you get the management system that is right for you.
