This is a brand new BOSS air bag load assist kit to suit : 

Later Toyota Landcruiser Utes - V8 Diesel 70 76 79 series REAR. VDJ76R VDJ79R

Basically - this LA09 kit fits every leaf rear landcruiser that came out with a V8 motor.
(For earlier non V8 Dsl we have another kit listed)

Also - we have a triple bag kit for longer wheel travel (the big lifts) and even heavier applications ..

Extra Heavy Duty

5 year warranty

 Feel free to call us on 0477 432 052 to discuss your requirements, seek after sales support or make an over the phone payment. Also if you have an ABN then call us for a trade price discount. We also look after workshops and resellers. We are here to help.

If you carry a heavy loads at all you should consider heavier springs of some sort. But the problem with heavier springs is that when you don't have a load they are rock hard and not only does it feel terrible but the car handles poorly. If your load varies you need soft suspension when you don't carry a load and heavy suspension when you do have a load. Cant manage that with heavier leaf springs. The only real way to achieve this is with air bags just like those in trucks and buses. 
This kit suits Std to 2" Lift Kit. If you have 3-4" lift then you should also purchase the spacer kit. refer to link ...

Also available is an articulation kit so while off road you can improve handling and wheel travel by permitting air to transfer from one side to the other. Refer to this link ...
With a BOSS Air Bag Load Assist kit you can run them virtually deflated when you are running light weight without a load. Then just pump them up when you load up. The heavier the load the more air you can apply. Realistically you only need 20 to 40 psi but the bags are tested to 400 psi and several tonnes of compress pressure per bag in manufacture. You could say the bags are over engineered and capable of exceeding your load carrying expectations by a long way.

Ideally when you are unloaded you should run 2 to 5 psi in the bags just to hold them steady against vibrations etc. What some people do is experiment with a few pounds to help reduce any body roll the vehicle might have had before the bags were fitted. That's an added advantage of this BOSS kit. 

I sell brackets and bags individually to people who change cars or need spares. Consider this - there are over 15,000 BOSS kits out there in Australia alone sold over the last 15 years. I sell replacement bags at a rate of about 2 bags per month. That tells us the bags are lasting a very long time and just not wearing out. I do get 8+ people a month saying they have traded their car and can they keep their bags and just buy new brackets to suit the new car. Of course they can and they save heaps. 

What lots of customers do is take a leaf or 2 out of their rear leaf pack. This softens up the ride to softer than standard. Then run a few pounds to suit your liking in the bags. Now you are running on air, even without a load. Cool huh! 
The kit is complete ..
  • Brackets top and bottom
  • Air Bags x 2 (1 for each side)
  • Air Lines
  • Air Fittings for air lines
  • Easy to follow instructions with pics
  • Full warranty and after sales support
  • Satisfaction guarantee that these suit your needs or swap or refund


Essentially you can lift the rear of the vehicle with air bags to level when otherwise sagging in the rear. You can avoid your headlights blinding oncoming drivers when your rear end sags. Also you can expect less body roll and a better ride, steering and handling especially if you soften up the leaf pack. Shocks, tyres and leaf springs will last longer too. 

You do not need to engineer these and they wont be affect your insurance. These compliment what you already have. We are not replacing anything, just adding to the car. 

We can supply each individual component separately if for whatever reason you need a new part, bearing in mind you have a long warranty anyway.


The steel brackets are laser cut, mig welded and anodised for rust prevention. The air bags are tried and trested 5mm thick rubber double convoluted multi-ply. The kit meets Australian Design Rule (ADR) standards. 

BOSS kits have been around for over 15 years and in that time literally thousands have been fitted. From this we know we can stand by our 5 year warranty confident that you are going to be very happy with your purchase.  

We sell to mining and heavy commercial operators, agricultural contractors and farmers, tradies, fishermen, campers, tourers and people who tow vans, trailers and floats.

Here's how easy they are to fit - anyone can do this...
  • Bolt up air bag to top and bottom mounts.
  • Jack up and support weight of car's chassis (You can leave wheels on the ground).
  • Remove Bump Stop from Chassis and bolt top mount to Bump Stop Bracket.
  • Loosen "U" bolts clamping rear leaf pack to rear axle. Slide bottom mount under "U" bolt then tighten "U" Bolts.  
  • Attach air fitting to bag plate and run air lines to somewhere handy.
That's all there is to it

Any old air compressor will pump these up. Could be at a servo, a workshop compressor or a 12V cig lighter compressor. It's really cool to mount a compressor and air tank on board as well as an inflation kit so you can adjust your air bags with the flick of a switch. See our store for more options. 

This kit may be picked up from the official BOSS retail store in Labrador on the Gold Coast or we can send anywhere in Aus for Free or Worlwide at affordable rates. If you pick up from Labrador you can check out our range of tanks and compressors.

We can also help with on board air compressor, tank, in cab kit so you can have full control from inside the car. You have choices - for those who just want to control their air bags and save some money here is a complete set up that we can all afford ... the PX02 In Cab Kit

Or if you want to also run air tools, tyre inflation kits and diff locks then you should check out our heavy duty PX07 In Cab Kit. 

BOSS now have two development centres - one based here on the Gold Coast and another in Canada. All development work for Australian vehicles is done here in Oz by BOSS Australia, a family owned Australian business. When you buy BOSS your money stays here in Australia.

BOSS dont copy others - To begin with they dont trust the others to get it right. But more importantly the others dont have anything to copy. BOSS are the first to get hold of new vehicle models and get kits to market having tried and tested them, fully getting to understand the vehicle and the engineering required. As such BOSS have the widest range of applications for Australian and now USA markets and continue to lead the way in quality offerings. 

BOSS Air Suspension air bags are manufactured in the BOSS factory with their own machines to their own exacting standards and specifications. BOSS strongly believes it's the only way of maintaining strict control over their bags. Many other companies piece together air bag kits by sourcing their air bags from various suppliers having no control over the consistency or quality over generic bags. And that's why their bags are not branded.  

Here are some interesting facts ....
  • It takes over 20 minutes for each bag to go from the raw un-cured blended rubber to a cured air bag. 1 machine can only make 1 bag at a time! A Time consuming process!
  • It’s not just the thickness of the rubber that gives the bag its strength but also the angle of the reinforcing cords and design of the woven beads. The proprietary ballistic material used for the woven reinforcing on the airbag wall, along with the specific spacing and angle of the weave, is what gives our air bag its’ unique strength. 
  • The bead ring ends of the bag are constructed of 4 Hi-tensile cords at each end, ensuring that the top and bottom hold their shape and can’t be pulled away from the Aluminium clamping ring. The center of the air bag (the part of the bag with the most stress) is constructed using 9 strands  of Hi-Tensile steel to form an indestructible center support. Our competitors's bags have less than half the strands.
  • The BOSS airbag machines are operated at over 400psi while the curing process is taking place with very high heat. There's an internal bladder pushing the airbag case into the mould ensuring consistency throughout the airbag wall. Each air bag machine has over 50 tons of clamping pressure on the mold during curing. Effectively these are desperately over engineered as there's no way you could ever exert that sort of pressure on a bag in your vehicle. 
  • The factory tests selected bags to destruction within a controlled chamber to ensure continued bag quality and identify possible ways to constantly improve the design and technique. 
  • BOSS have just recently released the exciting new EX-2 Bags. They have a 5 year leak free guarantee. Tooling was modified to provide for a heavier and wider rim width. 
  • BEWARE: Some other brands use crimped-on end caps. Crimped or “Banded” air bags are prone to popping the end caps out at anything over 100psi and often simply pull the end caps out when the bag is fully extended.
BOSS air bags are undeniably the strongest in the automotive industry and exceed any other air bag brands by nearly double. 

We sell to mining and heavy commercial operators, agricultural contractors and farmers, tradies, fishermen, campers, tourers and people who tow vans, trailers and floats.

Here are some handy links to short videos for tips on preparing your bags and air lines....

Cutting air lines square ...

Bolting up the brackets ...

BOSS are the only company in Australia who have a complete range of compressors, air tanks and accessories to compliment its extensive air bag suspension range. This includes the ability to control your airbags from inside the car or run air tools, pump up tyres, etc.
A check valve stops air leaking back down your air hose to the compressor when the compressor turns off. Here's the link ...
Here are some links to our aluminium rust proof tanks :




All good air compressors generate heat. You need a stainless steel braided airline to manage the heat.


Pressure switches turn your compressor off when the target pressure is reached and on again when the pressure drops to a minimum.






All compressors generate moisture and water gathers in your tank. Its important to be able to get that water out.


Here are a few handy fittings when setting up a tank...

Remote Nitto Kit for mounting a tyre inflation point somewhere like the bull bar or tow bar...


Tyre inflation hose ...





Safety Pressure Relief Valve


Mine Regulator with Gauge


Various size poly push to fit air line ..
