Air Lift LoadLifter Air Helper Springs Installation - 2004 Ford F-250
Today on our 2004 Ford F250 we'll be installing the Air Lift Load Lifter 5000 air helper springs, part number AL573090. Now today our F250 has a 6 inch lift on it, but the Load Lifter 5000 will still bolt into place, now again because our vehicle has a suspension lift on it we dont need to expand the suspension on the truck, but it is a good idea to go ahead and do that to give you enough clearance to get your air spring in. now today we'll be installing the passenger side. The drivers side installs the exact same way with a few minor additions. On the drivers side you'll want to make sure that you keep the wiring harness out of the way of the air spring and the hardware. Also the kit comes with an emergency brake cable clamp that you'll bolt into place to hold the emergency brake out of the spring.

Next well remove the nylon lock nut and nylon bushing from the shackle bolt on the Super Spring. Now with the shackle bolts removed, well sit that aside and move to the manufacturers lead spring pack.

Today, on this 2008 Ford F-350 were going to install part number sss-1. This is SuperSprings SuperSway-Stops, an anti-sway system for air spring suspension. The intent of this part is that it reduces body roll and decreases the sway by replacing the factory bump stops with the SuperSway-Stops. This is very easy to install. Basically, all we have to do is remove the factory bump stops. Of course, in this case we just sprayed them down with some lubricant.

We'll take the spring and the bracket and we'll bolt them together using the longer of the two bolts with lock washer. Now there's a flat washer already located inside the sprint.

Now you do not have to remove the rear wheels but we are doing it just to make things a little bit easier to see. And what this product does is actually replaces the factory bump stop which is located right here. So our first step involved is to go ahead and unbolt it from the truck and remove it.

SuperSprings Vehicle Suspension Installation - 2010 Ford F-350
Today on this 2010 Ford F-350 Super Duty, we are going to install part number SSA10 from SuperSprings. The first thing you want to do is go ahead and get the vehicle up in the air a little bit. You do not have to take off the wheel, but it makes things a lot easier to fit inside there. So, we have our wheel off. We have the suspension unloaded. And basically what is going to happen is we are going to set a block that goes on top of the factory overload spring right here. Alright, the first thing we want to do is go ahead and install this block that fits right here. Now this will fit a couple of different vehicles. You will need to flip it around and find out which is the best fit. Once you have that just like that, you can take the SuperSpring and lay it on top. And you will have to maneuver it around some cables, especially the parking brake cables, and make sure you do not hit anything else in the way. We also took off the bolts that go through the bottom, just to make it easier to thread everything inside because the unit does come preassembled. 1:07
Rear Air Helper Springs Installation - 2006 Ford F-250
Today on this 2006 Ford F-250 we are going to install Firestone Ride-Rite air helper springs using part number F2400. We are showing you now the components that are used to install one half of the kit. There is going to be two of everything for both sides of the vehicle. We are going to start off on our install by doing the driver side of the vehicle. The first thing we need to do to get started is to remove the old factory bump stop which is right here. There is a bolt on top that you have to get from the back side of the frame to unbolt it and it should come apart. It is a good idea to spray it down with some lubricant too to help remove it because that bolt does get rusted pretty easily. Moving on to the upper bracket, that is this piece right here, and it is going to wrap around the frame and it is going to have the spacer block that will go on top just like this. 00:54
Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement System - 2002 Ford F-250 Super Duty
Today on this 2002 F-250 Super Duty we are going to install part number TFR250SDE from Timbren. This is our Suspension Enhancement System. The first thing we did was remove the spare tire. Then we took off the tire on the side we are going to work on. You do not have to do that, we are doing it to make the instructions a little more clear. One thing you need to do is raise the frame off the suspension so you have plenty of room to work. :28
Air Helper Springs Installation - 1999 Ford F-250 Super Duty
Today on this 1999 Ford F-250 Super Duty we will be installing the Firestone air spring system part number F2330. The first thing we want to do is locate the jounce bumpers located directly above the axle near the springs on each side of the vehicle. These need to be removed from both sides of the vehicle so that is what we want to do first. With the jounce bumper removed you can see the collar that is in here. This collar we are going to reuse. If yours does happen to fall out when you are removing the jounce bumper you want to make sure you hold on to that. With the jounce bumper removed over on the driver side we need to clear out the wiring lines that are in the way because we want to make sure we do not pinch those when we install that upper bracket. We also need to remove this upper bolt that is holding the brake line on the outside of the frame, that is also interfering with our bracket. 00:48
