Choose Your Style: Bellow vs. Sleeve
The Builders Series features three air spring options: a sleeve-style air spring, a compact bellows-style air spring for tighter builds, and a standard bellows-style air spring for heavier builds.
Perfect for the rear of the vehicle, our sleeve-style air springs feature a max diameter of 5.1" and a max load capacity of 1,222 lbs. at 100 PSI, which ensures a smooth and comfortable ride.
Compact Bellow Style
Our compact option features a max diameter of 5.5" and a max load capacity of up to 1,709 lbs. at 100 PSI to support the front or rear end of most vehicles when clearance AND load are of equal concern.
Standard Bellow Style
When weight matters most, our standard option features a max diameter of 6.5" and a max load capacity of up to 2,016 lbs. at 100 PSI to support the front end of most vehicles.

Choose Your Shock Length
Each air spring is paired with an adjustable, monotube, threaded-body shock, each available at three different lengths — short, medium, and long.
Which Shock Length is Right for You?
Choosing the correct shock length is a critical part of setting up your vehicle for the proper ride quality.
Set the vehicle to the desired ride height.
Measure the shock length at ride height. While at ride height, measure the distance between the top and bottom shock mounts. Take the measurement and write this figure down.
Compare to the chart and select your shock. Reference the Builders Series size chart and make sure the desired ride height is mid stroke of max and compressed height measurements.

With measurements in hand, now it's time to choose the right applications for your custom build.
