Customer Q&A - Air Lift 88138


will this system work on a e-350 dually motorhome 2000 ford

Asked
Yes this Air Lift 88138 is designed to fit on the rear of a 2000 E-350 Motor-home chassis. This kit will mount under the frame so it will be clear of the dual rear wheels.


I have a 1988 E350 chassis that has a Grumman Olson body will I think they added extra leaf springs will this kit still fit

Asked
This kit mounts to the axle so the extra leaf in the spring pack should have no effect. As long as your E350 has a C-channel type frame that curves upward where the bump stop is mounted this kit should work. There are photos in the instruction manual which can be downloaded from our site that shows the way this kit mounts. Compare these photos to your van and ensure that they match.


Does the Air Lift Kit allow the use of the standard shock absorbers, or are they eliminated? How about modifications to the exhaust?

Asked
Air Lift air spring kits do not lift your vehicle above stock height, so they use your existing standard shock absorbers. The air bag kits provide support and keep your vehicle at stock height and prevent if from sagging. The air bags mount on top of your axle in the same place as your jounce bumper. You should not have to modify your exhaust to install this kit. This kit will fit econoline motorhomes and the motorhome manufacturer could have moved the exhaust. You can download the instructions on our website and see where the air bag kit mounts to determine if your exhaust may interfere. It is not common, but if you have a custom motorhome it is worth looking at the instructions to verify.


we have 1999 ford f 350 dually we brought a camper and it swase side to side is this want we need to help this problem ?

Asked
Yes, Air Lift Air Spring kit 88138 will help with side to side sway and body roll. Air Lift air springs increase spring rate and vastly improve vehicle stability. If you have any other questions, feel free to call us at 1-800-358-4751.


2004 Ford F250 Super Duty King Ranch 4WD with goose neck hitch. The goose neck hitch is attached to the outside of the frame with 3/8" steel plates just where the air lift brackets bolt up. Is there any adjustment for the offsets of about 3/8" if the frame and hitch plates are drilled to accept the hangers? If not then I will modify the goose neck hitch to accommodate. I'm sure I'm not the first to run into this issue. I am aware there is an inboard kit for just such an issue but it's double the price.

Asked
Air Lift air bag kit 88138 is designed specifically for Ford E-250 and E-350 Vans. This air bag kit will not work on a F-250 pickup truck. Air Lift air bag kit 88291 fits B&W hitch part #1105 and #1199R in 49" position with minor modifications to both B&W and Air Lift's upper brackets. If you do not have one of these B&W hitches you will have to go with the Air Lift Air Bag kit 57390 or 88390. They are more expensive, but are specifically designed for gooseneck hitches and 5th wheel hitches. We have a lot of satisfied customers with 1999-2004 Ford F-250's and gooseneck or 5th wheel hitches using kits 57390 or 88390. Feel free to call us at 1-800-358-4751 if you have any questions on which Air Lift Air Bag kit to use on your Ford F-250.


The Air Lift Company has been developing air spring suspension products for over 50 years. The original product, a rubber air spring inserted into a car's factory coil spring, was developed and patented in 1950.

The versatility of Air Lift air springs were proven during the early years of stock car racing. Air Lifts were used by most of the stock car racing teams for twenty years or so until the racing suspensions evolved to more sophisticated systems. The Air Lift Company sponsored cars were tough competitors on the NASCAR Grand National Circuit. The Air Lift Company has the longest history of product development dedicated solely to the development of light vehicle air suspension products.

First, in the 1950s, Air Lift pioneered the use of air spring inserts in coil spring suspensions. Then, in the 1960s, Air Lift introduced the use of sleeve-type air springs on pickup truck suspensions. During the 1980s Air Lift started using air helper springs on motor homes and ambulances. Street rods and lowered vehicles were the target in the 1990s. Today's products are an evolution of Air Lift's breakthrough development programs applying the use of air springs in light truck and motor home suspensions. Air Lift has won more SEMA awards for air spring development products than any other company.
