VW Transporter T3 (1979-1992) Full Kit | AirRide

£1,375.00

The full 4 wheel air suspension conversion kit for the VW T3 (also called T2.5 and T25 by some). In Europe this is known as the Transporter and in the US as the Vanagon and fits all vehicles from 1979-1992 . The kit is a simple bolt on conversion at the rear requiring only a few holes to be drilled, and can be reversed later if you trade up and wish to take the kit to a different van later. Only the highest quality components are used throughout, and are chosen for reliability over any other factor. The basic non management kit is just the front strut and rear bag kit without any compressor, controller, or management. Various options are available and the most popular is the basic kit which includes a manual controller. Other options include remotes, solenoids and computers. A really basic full air kit with non management is also available. Twin tanks and twin compressors are also available as additional options. Please ask if you are not sure of your requirements.

  • Simple to fit integral airbag and bracket at the rear.
  • Heavy duty version available for heavy motorhomes.

  • Properly designed CNC billet aluminium parts – in the same place as the original spring with no metal cut away on standard kit.
  • Because we believe in the products we sell, AirRide offers a 2 year extended warranty on this product. (terms apply)

and overall:-

  • Improves stability and reduces roll and improve handling.
  • Recovers lost suspension motion to improve ride quality.

  • Billet Aluminium machined upper and lower mounts which fit directly in place of the original metal spring.
  • Properly secured brackets that won’t slip around your axle, fracture or come adrift.
  • Proper automotive grade air springs (airbags) not factory grade or counterfeit as seen on many kits. Bags have at least 6 inches of lift potential.
  • Properly designed brackets mounted at points able to take the load – in the same place as the original spring with no metal cut away.

Basic kit comes without management (just bags and brackets), but various options can be selected from the from down lists.

NOTE:- This is a low duty kit designed for ease of fitment on lower weight vehicles. It will not ride well on heavy motorhomes as the bags are too small. If you need very heavy capacity such as a motor home please contact us for more information we may still be able to help.

Warranty

AirRide Sales Limited offer a warranty on AirRide products for a period of 2 years from time of purchase. This warranty is limited to the original purchaser and subject to registration at the time of fitting. If you fail to register then a 1 year warranty is offered.

If the kit does not appear to fit – STOP and call us, as a vehicle misidentification may have occurred. Kits will be accepted for return and exchange only if they are undamaged. The buyer must cover the return postage.

Management Options

AirRide kits can be supplied with or without air control (otherwise known as air management or On-Board Air (OBA)).

Air control 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, and for those who experience grounding issues it allows the absolute maximum lift to be achieved when needed (i.e. for ferries, petrol stations and rough site entrances). If in doubt, please contact us via email or phone.

No compressor, no tank

You can have an AirRide Custom kit with no air control 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 comes with an aluminium, 100% duty cycle compressor with up to 200 PSI and an air tank. It is controlled with four buttons, one for each air bag. The 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.

Digital computer system

The computer system comes with an aluminium 100% duty cycle compressor with up to 200 PSI and an air tank. It electronically controls the amount of pressure in each air bag. This can be controlled either with a wired controller or a phone app.  With the computer, you can adjust your car to certain pre-set heights and alter the vehicle’s height while on the move. This is also the easiest system to install; it is the most highly-recommended option.

Other options

If you would prefer an air control 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 air control system that is right for you.
