Volkswagen Caddy Rear Load-Support Kit | Boss Air

£795.00 £645.00 inc. VAT

This is a rear-end load support kit for the VW Caddy. It is made by Boss Air, an Australian air suspension company renowned for making tough and durable air bags.

The kit is a simple, bolt-on conversion that your local garage should be able to fit.

It is a load-support kit, meaning it is fitted in addition to the vehicle’s original suspension to lift the rear and make for a more stable, comfier ride. The air bags can be adjusted to allow for more or less load, meaning your Caddy will always remain level.

It can be inflated simply through Schrader (tyre) valves, or through an air management system of your choice (see ‘Options’ tab below for more info).

For a full list of everything included in the kit please click the ‘Description’ tab below.

We also do installation at AirRide. To book your Caddy in for a fitting, please call or e-mail us.

About Boss Air

Boss Air isn’t any ordinary air suspension company. They design and manufacture air bags to withstand any conditions, including the red-hot terrain of the Australian Outback.

This means that Boss air bags are as tough and durable as possible. They are made from thicker rubber than a standard air bag, meaning that Boss have never supplied a burst bag in 14 years (in that time they’ve supplied more than 13,000 kits!)

But of course, Boss air bags aren’t just used Down Under. Their kits have been used all over Europe, including the sub-freezing temperatures of Scandinavia – quite a long way from the 50-degree heat of Australia’s red centre!


Caddy 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 the Caddy at AirRide. Read on to find out more:

No compressor, no tank

You can have a Caddy 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 fast solenoids from AirRide. Fast solenoids run much faster than the standard ones and can be installed a lot easier, as they 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 Caddy 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.
