Wondering if anyone has or knows of a way to give our suspension a hand.  I use my 'tek as though it's a pick up.....never are the rear seats in.  I'm a wood floor girl, so I often load a lot of material in the back.  And though the air shocks do a damn good job, I don't want to tax them.  Just curious if anyone has installed Bilstein bumps or something of the like to assist under heavy conditions.  Geeze, maybe even something like a set of leafs??!!!  If you're not in the know, our frame, subframe and suspension are designed as a car...not a truck. 


TIA

I'd be surprised at this point if there's any reply to this, but..  I searched and found this kit https://www.airliftcompany.com/shop/60748/ which might fit an Aztek.  The AWD version has coil springs in its independent rear suspension, as does the FWD.  This kit comes with rubber air bags that go inside each coil spring and provide extra load capacity, and I notice they also sell various compressors and control systems to go along with them.

It would be cool to see how they work in an Aztek, as the kit is for the Montana.

If you plan to use the kit from the Montana, or even a Bonneville or any other vehicle potentially, I would definitely look up rear spring dimensions and compare them to what is on the Tek. This way you will get something that functions correctly. You might be able to call airlift directly and see if they know of someone that's used a set on a Tek as well.

I currently have airlift kit on my s10 and it works wonderfully.
