VW Transporter T5 Front Strut Kit | AirRide Custom

£1,400.00 inc. VAT

These are custom-made kits for the VW Transporter T5, T26, T28 & T30.

These front struts are a direct, bolt-on replacement for the original struts. They each have a large air bag and are very simple to install. The strut is available on its own, with an optional armoured air hose. These are available with either an inflation Schrader valve kit or an air management system, meaning you can control your air suspension at the push of a button (see the ‘Options’ tab below).

This kit can be installed alone but would work best with an AirRide Custom rear-end kit to give your T5 full air suspension.

Description

This is an AirRide Custom air suspension kit. We manufacture these kits ourselves, based on several decades specialising in air suspension systems. We absolutely believe that this is the best-quality air assistance kit on the market (we wouldn’t make it any other way!) Our kit:

  • Is a practical bolt-on installation which is rated as DIY or local garage fit
  • Improves stability and handling and reduces roll
  • Recovers lost suspension motion to improve ride quality
  • Can help pass an MOT if your vehicle is low (as a lot of motorhomes are)
  • Can help re-rating for heavier capacity on some vehicles

It includes:

  • Billet aluminium machined upper mounts for the front, which fit directly with the original equipment manufacturer’s thrust bearing
  • Properly-secured brackets that won’t slip out of place, fracture or come adrift
  • Proper automotive grade air springs (air bags). Bags have at least 6 inches of lift potential
  • A two-year warranty (terms apply)

If you are unsure of the correct fitment, please email or call.

This is a generic video clip to show the nature of the kits. Actual kit contents may vary. Many of the kits are generally similar and therefore please check out some of the other videos for an idea of what the kits look like, and you may browse videos by clicking here. If you need further information please do email or call.

Delivery

Delivery on Air Assistance kits is currently £19 for Mainland UK excluding Highlands. Please get in touch to find out an exact date for dispatch. We sell items outside the UK but website postage prices are for UK. Additional charges will be levied for non-UK and they will be invoiced separately. Alternatively international customers can email their requirements to enquiries@airride.uk and we can raise an invoice including international postage. Please do call if you need more information or to know the stock situation which changes from hour to hour. Please do not assume that because you phoned last week and found it was in stock that it is still in stock.

Warranty

AirRide Sales Limited offers a warranty on AirRide Custom products for a period of two years from the 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, a one-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 fee. 

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 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.
