Benefits of air suspension include:
- Increased stability
- Reduced sensitivity to wind
- Significantly improved road holding
- Maintenance of correct braking pressure
- Less tyre wear
- Always correct driving height
- Prevent damage on ferries or driveways
- The posibility to levelling left and right independantly
- Posibility of increased payload capacity
Air suspension kits fitted by LNB Towbars include integral air compressor and where possible dash fitted control panel as standard. This give you full control from the drivers seat to harden or soften the ride, raise or lower the height or make small adjustments as needed.
For vans with leafspring suspension we can also offer the basic system consisting of just the air bellows and inflation valves.
We stock kits for leafsping converted van chassis, Alko single axle chassis, and alko tag axle chassis, motorhomes of all makes available.

For vehicles based on a van chassis with leafspring suspension, we have our standard kit, tailored exactly to the make and model of the vehicle. It includes two air bellows that sit between the axle and the chassis, at the centre of the leafspring, includes hoses connectors and valves and a compressor mounted in the vehicle to control the level/pressure. Also a dash mounted control panel with guages and an inflate/deflate control switch for both sides. Giving you full control from the drivers seat to adjust for comfort, ride, or to raise the rear to clear an obstactle such as a ferry ramp.
For vehicles based on an ALKO chassis the suspension is different. These systems should only be fitted by skilled trained professionals. It works by placing an air bellow between the swinging suspension arm and a bracket strategically mounted to the ALKO chassis. The air in this bellow then controls both the ride height, and the amount of travel in the swinging arm. It includes two air bellows that sit between the arm and the chassis, all the proffessionally designed and TUV approved brackets, hoses connectors and valves, and a compressor mounted in the vehicle to control the level/pressure. Also a dash mounted control panel with guages and an inflate/deflate control switch for both sides. Giving you full control from the drivers seat to adjust for comfort, ride, or to raise the rear to clear an obstactle such as a ferry ramp.
Tag axle ALKO chassis, require extra bellows and brackets and a more powerful compressor.
If you have a motorhome based on a van chassis with leafsprings, and are on a budget. We can offer the basic system. This consists of just the bellows and brackets to install between the axle and chassis, hose and fittings, and two schraeder inflation valves mounted externally. This basic system has no guages or control from the drivers position. The bags will need to be inflated by an external pump to a desired pressure, and periodically checked just like you would a vehicle tyre.
