New from Air Lift

Hello,

I wanted to introduce myself. My name is Mike Sturgill, and Iím the newest member of Air Lift Company. Iíve been brought on to provide another level of customer service for Air Lift. I will check the forums frequently for any posts pertaining to air support products or towing problems which I may be able to help with. I am new to the company; however, I bring over 10 years of experience in air ride products. I donít claim to know all the answers but promise to do everything I can to help in any way possible.
If you have any questions or concerns with air support products, whether it is an Air Lift product or not, please let me know. You can PM me through this site or if you would prefer you can email me at msturgill@airliftcompany.com

I look forward to helping anyone I can. Thanks for letting me be part of your community.

Thanks for the welcome.

Conquest- the kit that we make for a 1996 E-350 would require four holes to be drilled through the side of the frame two per each side of the RV. The brackets provide clearance holes to line up the new holes onto.

The kit you would need is 57138, you can find the manual for it in the link below. You can look over the instructions and see if you feel comfortable with the amount of drilling required.

As for price, we suggest that you purchase the product through one of our retailers or locate a dealer near you.
Dealer Locator | Air Lift Company

In order to keep within your $500 budget, you would probably have to go with a manual control system. We do offer these in a dual (separate) configuration.
Air Lift Company Load Controller Dual (Standard Duty Compressor) - Load Support On Board Air Systems

The price listed on our site is suggested retail, if you visit one of our retailers you will most likely find it for a better price.

Also, you may be able to afford a nicer controller by using the $100 rebate we are currently offering.

Mike;

First THANK YOU for the FAST response. This looks like it would be doable. I was afraid of having to drill a bunch of holes but 2 per side no big deal. The fun part will be jacking and removing the duallies. I just changed shocks on the tag axle so this shouldn't be that much harder.

What is the maximum lift I could expect to get from these. I have to back up over a curb to get RV into my parking spot. Right now I have about a 2 inches of clearance. I am hoping to lift it up then get either on road or back in drive and then lower it back down. That's why I wanted cockpit controls.

The amount of lift is going to vary from vehicle to vehicle, and depending on how much squat you are currently experiencing.

A typical response I see from most users though is around 2-3" of lift. Again, I can't guarantee any number specifically for your conditions but this is simply what I have seen.

I hope that helps.
