Air lift 1000
Plan on ordering a BDS 4 inch lift with the optional 3 inch springs for the rear. I was wondering would a Air Lift 1000 part number 60818 work?

The bags will not be long enough with the new rear springs. Unfortunately Airlift doesn't make any bags longer than those but they do make Lift-n-Lock spacers. They aren't designed for this specific application but I have read a couple posts of guys making them work with the set up. I don't see why they wouldn't.... I just ordered a set of them for my truck yesterday so I'll hopefully have them installed in about a week and a half and will be able to comment on the fitment and any mods that are required.

That is what I thought

I just see post people installing them

Doc, Brandon is correct.
But you are far better off than guys who have it installed on a 6" lift (5" rear coil)
The way the airlift works is it compresses outwards so that the coils do not compress downwards
So essentially what the airbag covers is what will prevent it from sagging.
Guys running this on a 5" rear coil with heavy weight in the bed get max 1" sag, which is not bad if you have a slight rake.
That being said. I would estimate you to be 1/2" of sag if any at all.

Also, if you need pricing on the airlift, BDS kit, let me know and I will make sure you get Z member pricing :smileup:

That air bag kit was easy to install. I have it on my truck. I am always carrying lumber and building materials in the bed, so I needed something to help out with sag. Took me maybe 2 hours total and works great. just keep in mind that it does have its limits, and will sag a little on you, if you have too much weight in the bed, just not as much as if you had no bags at all!

Oh, you do need to pump up the psi BEFORE loading, due to the way that they work!
