Air Lift Air Helper Springs Installation - 2001 GMC Sierra

Today on our 2001 GMC Sierra 2500 HD, we'll be installing the Air Lift Load Lifter 5000 Air Helper Springs, part number AL57275. Now here's what our vehicle looked like with the manufacturer's suspension and no weight added to the rear of the vehicle. We'll go ahead and take a measurement from the bottom of the wheel well down to the ground. As you can see, we're at 41 inches. Next we're going to go ahead and add approximately 2,700 pounds of weight to the rear of the vehicle. Now with our weight added, you can see it's lowered the rider height from 41 inches to 37 1/2. Next we're going to go ahead and run the vehicle through our test course.


Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Air Helper Springs Installation - 2013 Ford F-150

All right today on this 2013 Ford F150 super crew cab we're going to show you part number AL57200, the Air Lift Load Lifter 5000 air helper springs. Now this has a load baring capacity up to 5000 pounds. Whatever you put in your truck that makes it squat, the Load Lifter 5000 will go ahead and bring your truck back up to level. This is what the Air Lift 5000 looks like once installed on the truck. With this part number you get two air bags, one for each side of the axle. It mounts to the axle, basically using large clamps. This does replace the factory jounce stop.


Firestone Coil Rite Air Helper Springs Installation - 2013 Ford Fusion

Today, on this 2013 Ford Fusion, we're going to show you part number F4145, the Firestone Coil-Rite Air Helper Springs. Now, a few details about our airbags, is that it has a load leveling capacity of up to 500 pounds. It has adjustable air pressure from 5 psi, which is about the normal you want to keep it, when there's no load in it, to about 35 psi, when it's fully loaded. As you can see, our air spring fits inside the spring on the suspension, here in the back. There's an air line that goes from the top down, to a built in fitting that's on the inside. That's what it looks like on top. The air line goes directly into here.

Vehicle Suspension Questions and Answers

  • Fit of Firestone Ride Rite # F2542 Air Helper Springs and 5th Wheel Hitch on 2014 Ford F150
  • According to Firestone, the only fifth wheel set up they've tested on the 2014 Ford F150 for fit with the # F2542 is the B&W Companion, which consists of the # BWGNRK1104 install kit and the # BWRVK3400 sliding hitch. My Firestone rep tells me that there's a good chance that a Universal Install Kit like the Husky # HT31564-686 would fit, but since they haven't tested it, we can't guarantee fit.

  • Is Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Spring # F2446 Compatible with B&W Gooseneck Hitch in F-450
  • In the case of the Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Spring Kit # F2446, which fits the rear axle of your 2008 Ford F-450, there will NOT be any interference problem to worry about. Sometimes an air bag kit can interfere with goose neck or 5th wheel hitch installation. This can happen when the two items use similar mounting locations along the truck's frame. This kit installs without drilling and it works either with or without factory top overload springs. The kit includes everything you...

  • Recommended Suspension Enhancement for 2014 Ram 1500 Crew Cab Outdoorsman
  • I checked with Timbren and my contact there said the Timbren Vehicle Suspension, part # TDR1500DQ, that you referenced are indeed a fit for the Outdoorsman models of the 2014 Ram 1500 Crew Cab. To install part # TDR1500DQ, they will snap into place just like the old bump stops. They are pressed into the cup like you see in the video, linked for reference. I have also included a link to the instructions. You will also want to remember that by adding this suspension system you will not...

  • Will Adding Helper Springs Take Care of Worn Suspension on a 2003 Ford E-350 RV Cutaway
  • Helper springs and any suspension enhancement product such as # SSA8 are meant to be installed on a vehicle with a factory suspension system that is in good working condition. It sounds like the suspension needs to be replaced on your 2003 Ford E-350 so you would not want to install suspension enhancement until it is replaced. Once it is replaced then adding suspension enhancement will help extend the life of the stock suspension so that you do not run into this issue again. For your...

  • How to Add or Remove Air from Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs
  • If the Firestone system in your truck has the gauge in the cab that has a button or lever then it is that button or lever that will allow you to add or remove air from the air bags. That type of gauge indicates there should be an on-board compressor that adds or removes air from the bags. But it could also mean that the previous owner just wanted a gauge and the add/fill feature is not active and there is no compressor. The easiest way to determine if there is a compressor is to look...

  • Is it Normal to Have a Gap Between Timbren and Vehicle Frame Unloaded
  • Yes, having a gap between the Timbren and the trailer frame allows the suspension to operate without any harshness when the vehicle is unloaded. The when the vehicle has the weight of cargo in it that gap will go away and the Timbren will be there to provide additional support.

  • Rear Suspension Enhancement Recommendation for a 2014 Ram 2500 with Coil Springs
  • I would recommend the Timbren Rear Suspension System part # TDR2500D for your 2014 Ram 2500 with coil springs. This system has been confirmed to fit your vehicle that has coil springs and will provide you with additional suspension support when the vehicle is loaded. Also, it won't affect your ride quality when unloaded unless you were to hit a large bump. I attached a picture a customer of ours sent us that shows it installed in a truck with coil springs just like yours. Timbrens...

  • Recommended Air Bags for a 2014 Chevy Silverado 2500 6-1/2 Foot Bed
  • The purpose of adding air springs is to enhance the handling performance and stability of your 2014 Chevy Silverado 2500. The purpose is to level your vehicle if you are hauling heavy loads, enhance braking and reduces rear vehicle sag to name a few. With that said, I recommend the Firestone Ride-Rite air helper springs # F2528 (2WD or 4WD) as it will have a load leveling capacity between 3,200 pounds to 5,000 pounds. You can also adjust the air pressure between 5 psi and 100 psi....

  • Helper Springs or Weight Distribution for a 1999 Ford Expedition that Sags with Boat Trailer Coupled
  • You have some squat there but I've seen worse! Basically, there are two reasons that a vehicle can squat in the back. One is caused by the tongue weight of the trailer and the other is when you are carrying a heavy load in the bag of the vehicle. When squat is caused by a heavy load carried in the vehicle that is when you would use suspension enhancement like helper springs of some kind. But when squat is caused by the tongue weight of a trailer the best solution is to use weight distribution....

  • Helper Springs to Reduce Rear End Sway on a 2015 Ram 3500 with Slide-In Camper or 5th Wheel Trailer
  • If you are looking for the best option to help with sway while also providing additional support that will not affect the ride when empty then I recommend the SuperSprings suspension stabilizer system, # SSA23. For your particular needs this would be the option I would choose. The SumoSprings Rebel system, # SSR-301-40-2, would be the better solution if you were looking for more support from a load that caused the rear of the vehicle to sag. This system is more likely to affect the empty...

  • Recommended Rear Suspension Enhancement for a 2013 Ford F-150
  • The rear suspension system I recommend is the Firestone Ride-Rite air helper springs # F2525. They will fit your 2013 Ford F-150 2WD or 4WD (will not work with the SVT Raptor or FX2 models). The ride quality of your 2013 Ford F-150 will be improved and reduce strain on your rear suspension. You can adjust the air pressure between 5 psi to 100 psi as well. Adjusting the air in the bags should be adjusted to suit the weight of the load you are carrying. I also recommend the Firestone...

  • Recommended Air Suspension System For 2012 Nissan Titan
  • This has been an issue for many vehicles. Using an air suspension system on your 2012 Nissan Titan when the weight distribution system is being used is not a great idea, as they tend to cancel each other out which does no good for you. Many times the problem you are having with the excessive sag is due to the weight distribution system not being set up correctly or may even be the incorrect size. I have attached a helpful article you can check out. You can install an air bag system...

  • Air Suspension Recommendations for 2011 Ford F150 4WD SuperCrew Towing 5th Wheel
  • I'd recommend the Air Lift Load Lifter 5000, part # AL57200. Instead of the 2K capacity of the Ride Control helper springs you were looking at, the # AL57200 has a full 5000 lb capacity, which will handle the pin weight of your fifth wheel with no problem, while the 2K capcity of the # AL59568 Ride control springs might not be enough (keep in mind the springs WILL NOT increase the existing capacity of your truck.) The Ride Control springs sit partially to the outside of the frame members,...

  • Helper Springs for a 2014 Ram 2500 Diesel with 5th Wheel Prep Package
  • For a 2014 Ram 2500 the only Timbren system that is listed is # TDR2500D. The other one you mentioned, # TDRTT3500D, is designed for 3500 models and is rated much higher that you would need at 12,000 pounds. System # TDR2500D is rated for 8,600 pounds but considering that the pin weight of the trailer will be much lower than this that 8,600 pounds is more than enough. The springs install on the bottoms of the truck frame rails so they will not interfere with the 5th wheel prep package...

  • What Air Pressure to Use in Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs # F2071
  • Rear axle air springs like the Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs # F2071 can be operated with pressures that range from the minimum 5-psi (which is necessary at all times) up to 100-psi depending on the vehicle and load requirements. Firestone does not give specific pressure recommendations for any particular vehicles or applications because there are so many variables as well as driver preferences to consider. The general rule is to first inflate just enough to level the vehicle,...

  • Timbren Helper Spring Option for 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Thats Been Lowered by 2 Inches
  • When installed on a vehicle with a standard, unaltered suspension, the bottom of the Timbren Aeon spring will sit about 1/2 to 1-1/2 inches above the axle when the vehicle is unloaded. Because your vehicle has been lowered by two inches, the bottom of the springs will always be in contact with the axle. Timbren tells me that this will work, but you'll experience a rather poor ride. If you can provide me with the current distance between the top of the axle and the underside of the...

  • Comparison Between SuperSprings # CSS-1145 And # CSS-1145R
  • Part # CSS-1145 and part # CSS-1145R are identical helper springs. They are designed to fit the rear only for your 2013 Dodge Durango. Originally these were designed for both the front and back and the R indicated they were to be used on the rear only. These are inserted between the coils of each coil spring on your Durango and help to reduce body roll and help keep your Durango level. As more weight is added the stiffer they become.
