Installing Airbagit's Toyota Tundra 2007-2018 Plug and Play FBSS Complete Air Suspension Kit

Looking to upgrade your Toyota Tundra? Airbagit's Plug and Play FBSS Complete Air Suspension Kit offers a convenient and effective solution. This step-by-step guide will walk you through the installation process, ensuring a smooth and successful upgrade to your Tundra's suspension system.

Before starting the installation, gather all the necessary tools and familiarize yourself with the kit components. Airbagit's Plug and Play FBSS Complete Air Suspension Kit includes everything you need for a seamless installation, such as air bags, brackets, lines, fittings, and a 1/3hp small compressor. Make sure you have a set of basic hand tools, including wrenches and a drill, to complete the job.

Step 1: Prepare Your Tundra

Begin by safely lifting your Toyota Tundra and securing it on jack stands. Remove the front and rear wheels to gain access to the suspension components.

This is an excellent opportunity to inspect the underside of your vehicle for any signs of wear or damage that may need attention before proceeding with the installation.

Step 2: Install the Air Bag Brackets

Locate the factory suspension mounting points on your Tundra's frame. Airbagit's kit includes specially designed brackets that will replace the original suspension components.

Position the new brackets in place and use the provided hardware to securely bolt them to the frame. Ensure that all bolts are tightened to the manufacturer's specified torque settings.

Step 3: Mount the Air Bags

With the brackets securely in place, it's time to install the air bags. Airbagit's kit features high-quality air bags designed for durability and performance. Attach the air bags to the brackets using the supplied mounting hardware.

Double-check that the air bags are properly seated and not rubbing against any other components. Tighten all connections to ensure a secure fit.

Step 4: Route the Air Lines

Next, you'll need to route the air lines from the air bags to the compressor and tank. Airbagit's kit includes DOT-approved air line and push-to-connect fittings for a reliable, leak-free installation.

Carefully route the air lines, avoiding any moving parts, sharp edges, or heat sources that could potentially damage them. Use zip ties or cable clamps to secure the lines in place.

Step 5: Install the Compressor and Tank

Find a suitable location for mounting the 1/3hp small compressor and air tank, such as in the engine bay or under the vehicle.

Ensure that the chosen location is easily accessible for maintenance and away from any extreme heat sources. Secure the compressor and tank using the provided mounting hardware. Connect the air lines from the bags to the tank using the supplied fittings.

Step 6: Wire the Electrical Components

To power the compressor, you'll need to connect it to your Tundra's electrical system.

Locate the designated power source outlined in the instructions and connect the compressor's power wire. Secure the ground wire to a clean, bare metal surface on the vehicle's chassis.

Step 7: Test and Calibrate the System

With all components installed and wired, it's time to test the air suspension system. Reconnect the wheels and lower your Tundra back to the ground. Turn on the compressor and use the provided control panel to inflate and deflate the air bags.

Check for any leaks or unusual noises during operation. Refer to the manufacturer's guidelines for proper calibration and setting the desired ride height.

Common Mistakes to Avoid

To ensure a successful installation and optimal performance, be aware of these common mistakes:

  1. Improper vehicle support: Always use jack stands rated for your Tundra's weight and place them on a level, stable surface.
  2. Over-tightening fittings: Tighten fittings securely but avoid over-tightening, as this can lead to leaks or damage to the components.
  3. Routing air lines incorrectly: Take care to route air lines away from heat sources, moving parts, and sharp edges to prevent damage and leaks.
  4. Neglecting electrical connections: Ensure all electrical connections are secure and protected from moisture and debris.
  5. Skipping system testing: Always test the air suspension system thoroughly after installation to identify any issues or leaks before driving.

By following these guidelines and avoiding common pitfalls, you can enjoy a successful installation and the benefits of Airbagit's Plug and Play FBSS Complete Air Suspension Kit on your Toyota Tundra. If you are not experienced in installation, make sure to consult a professional.
