This full four-wheel air suspension conversion kit for the VW T5 Transporter fits all vehicles from 2003 to the present day – including the T26, T28 & T30. It doesn’t fit some T32s however – they have a separate page.

The kit is a simple bolt-on conversion, and can be reversed later if you trade your vehicle in (or lease it) and wish to install your kit on a newer 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. However, various management options are available and the most popular is the digital computer controller. Other options include solenoids and manual paddle controls. Twin tanks and twin compressors are also available as additional options. Choose your preferred management option from the drop-down menu below (see ‘Options’ tab for more info).

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 suspension 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
  • Lifts sagging vehicles to reduce or prevent grounding
  • Is superb for help with towing
  • 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
  • Precision CNC-machined rear brackets with alignment adjustment
  • 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
  • Specifically-designed brackets, mounted at points able to take the load – in the same place as the original spring
  • A two-year warranty (terms apply)

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

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

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.
