Default Frustrated Total Load Control (TLC) Owner

pissed off and upset...long story short I spent almost $500 on TLC air bags plus $150 to have installed in order to avoid issues I may introduce. Bags nothin but trouble from day one. Leaked, had to redo airlines 3 times, only to find out the company had bad batch of mis-drilled holes where the valve seats on the bag. Well once I had that fixed up by having to undo the entire system again I left for vacation with my camper only to have bags move, twist and melt to my muffler. Had loaded it with 20 lbs of air to ensure my ride would be safe. Got to campground to find out the above mentioned mess. Fighting for my money back and with no luck so far.

Just purchased Airlift 1000's which were actually my first choice until I saw TLC......which should now be called Total Load of Crap.....dont normally do this but I am stuck with a mess under my truck right now and feel a two year warranty should be exactly that......

Make sure the air valve on the bag is nice and tight and no leaks before you install them, they are now on top and hard to check once installed. Had I known I would of Teflon taped them before they went on the truck. Just a heads up

The install fee is lost. My buddy and I are going to remove the old set and the new ones too.

The valves are indeed an issue as well since they had oversized drill holes. We tackled that with an automotive adhesive/sealant called automotive amazing goop.

I am so sorry you had these issues. Who have you been working with? Had I known about them, you would have been taken care of right from the start.

I know exactly the design fault you are talking about. I noticed it while testing the system for the first time. I had a hand in the design of the new system and I can assure you it works.

While we can't help you recoup your install fee, I do hope you received your new setup at no cost to you. If not let me know. And thank you for your business. We do appreciate it.
