Air Lift's LoadLifter 5000 was designed with an exact purpose: to provide full-time, first-class support to your 3/4- or 1-ton pickup, motor home, or commercial truck. With this kit, you get a safer ride and simultaneously protect your vehicle from the strain that comes with hauling massive loads.


Carrying heavy cargo in your truck bed or trailer puts tremendous stress on your vehicle. Your brakes erode faster, your tires wear unevenly, and handling suffers severely. When towing, you might also experience excessive sway, bottoming out, and even improper and unsafe headlight aim. Fortunately, there is a solution to these problems. By pairing your existing suspension with the LoadLifter 5000, you can seriously beef up your suspension, ensure equal load distribution, and give your vehicle the support it desperately needs. Air Lift's LoadLifter 5000 provides up to 5,000 pounds of load-leveling capacity and distributes the weight of your payload to all four wheels. As a result, the stress on your OEM suspension is significantly reduced.


LoadLifter's air bags are adjustable from 5 to 100 psi for precise support, and they can be inflated independently of one another for front-to-rear and side-to-side leveling. They are made of high-quality, two-ply, fabric-reinforced rubber. Most air bags lose air at the ends, where the bag is enclosed with a steel cap, because the steel can rust and corrode over time, creating small holes. The endcaps on Air Lift air bags are fashioned from corrosion-proof Zytel nylon, a material that is both stronger and lighter than steel, ensuring that the air bags won't lose air. Also, LoadLifter 5000 comes with Air Lift's exclusive roll plates, which both protect your air springs and beef up the load capacity of the springs.


This system installs with the included brackets and hardware. Just mount the springs, inflate them, and ride. To inflate the LoadLifter springs, you just have to pump air in through the inflation valves. A line kit is included with the springs so that you can install the valves (one for each spring) in an easily accessible area - typically they are installed on the bumper. If you want to make the springs even easier to use, you can get a compressor and gauge system (sold separately).


Air Lift kits are designed to keep your vehicle at normal ride height. You can find the normal ride height of your vehicle by unloading it and measuring the distance between the bottom edge of your wheel well and the center of the hub. After you find and record this distance, you can regulate the amount of air that you put into your air springs to maintain normal ride height - even when you are hauling a heavy load. You will need to adjust the air pressure in your air bags according to the size of your load.


Along with a lifetime warranty that has no mileage restrictions, Air Lift offers a 60-day satisfaction guarantee. Just install and use LoadLifter 5000 springs for 60 days, and if you are not satisfied at the end of this time, you can remove them from your vehicle and return them for a full product refund. Now that's confidence.

I've only had the kit for a few days at this point, but it went together easily and the instructions are some of the better I've used for truck accessories. Full size, full color graphics really help. Following instructions exactly. it went together without any leaks and is performing great. I have it on a 2018 Ram 3500 and with the bags at 5 PSI I can't really notice any difference in ride quality. I have yet to use it for its intended purpose (truck camper) since I don't have it yet but I'm sure it will improve stability. I can tell a difference is how much the truck leans going around a corner if I just even bump it up to 10psi empty. Only tough part of the install is tightening the bags to the bottom bracket after you have them on and aligned. You'll want to have a 14mm ratcheting wrench to make it not so frustrating. 801647

Great product and relatively easy to install on your garage floor. Installation videos by etrailer are great if you get stuck. Good product and I'd recommend you get the companion remote air compressor system if you have a camper or carry heavy loads frequently. 702866

Received via UPS very fast. Box was a little ragged and the UPS driver waited as I opened it to make sure it was ok. One of the plastic bags holding nuts and bolts had come open allowing them to rattle around inside the box but only was missing a single flat washer. Easy install, I took a lot of breaks and I’m a little slow getting up and down so it took 4 hours. Held pressure overnight. I’m going to haul our 40 ft 5th wheel in a couple of days looking forward to using the air bags 671822

I love the air bags for hauling our 5th wheel RV. Our truck used to squat some but now I run with about 80 lbs and brings truck back to standard height just have to remember to let some air out when unhooked from trailer or ride is a little stiff

Review from a similar LoadLifter 5000 in Vehicle Suspension


I have a 2019 Nissan Titan XD with the 5.6 GAS motor. Wanted to do an Airlift suspension to provide a little support and get my headlights perfectly back to level when towing my travel trailer. No one makes an airbag kit for the gas XD, but after discussing it some with John H at etrailer, I decided to go with the kit for the diesel truck and see how things went. The kit for the diesel truck fit perfectly, except that there is an emissions component hung from a bracket on the driver's sign frame that prevents a direct install of the driver's side bag. My shop was able to install the kit with no trouble - they just had to bend the bracket with the small emissions component attached upwards for clearance. Everything else went in as designed. Great fit - can't wait to see it work under load. 669525


Comments
These things have been great! I tow a travel trailer thats about 8K loaded with roughly 1100 tongue weight. The bags level this load perfectly so headlights are right and everything is stable. I run 10 psi unloaded, 40psi with normal loads in the camper, and 70psi with the fresh water tank full which is forward in the trailer. I kept it simple with individual valves for each bag. Wouldnt change a thing. A bicycle pump is more than adequate for making changes in pressure bc the volume is so low that its easy. All good with this product.

  • Is it Normal for PSI to Double in Air Bags After Loading 2014 Ram 3500
    I spoke with my contact at Air Lift about kit # AL57295 on your 2014 Ram 3500. He stated that what you are experiencing is normal. What I recommend is getting the truck loaded up and the trailer coupled and then adding however much air is needed to the air bags. If this is a 5th wheel trailer then at 25,900 pounds the pin weight pressing downward on the rear axle will be around 5,180 pounds so in that case it would be slightly over the capacity of this system. If you are not towing...

  • Rear Axle Air Spring Kit for 2019 Ram 3500 4WD Cab and Chassis
    We do have a rear axle air spring kit that will fit your cab and chassis 3500, Firestone # F2478, but AirLift does not have an option for your cab and chassis 3500. This Firestone rear air spring setup fits with or without factory top overload springs but it does require that you have at least 8-inches of space between the outside of the frame and the inside of the tire. With these springs you can use a compressor kit that will make it much easier to find the pressure sweet spot for...

  • Will AirLift Loadlifter Air Bag Kit # AL57295 Fit 2013 Ram 3500 Dually 4WD with Factory Gooseneck
    The AirLift Loadlifter Air Bag Kit # AL57295 that you referenced will indeed work along with the factory gooseneck hitch in your 2013 Ram 3500 Dually 4WD. To be certain I confirmed compatibility with my technical contact at AirLift. The installation instructions for this kit are provided for reference. This AirLift kit will allow manual inflation, either evenly for an overall lift of the truck rear end, or independently to allow for side-to-side leveling. The kit includes the air bags,...

  • High Capacity Suspension Enhancement for a 2012 Dodge Ram 1500
    The frame and suspension is different between the 1500 and 2500 series 2012 Dodge Ram so the parts are not interchangeable. But if you want the most capacity for a 1500, take a look at the Timbren springs # TDRTT1500. These guys are rated for 7,000 pounds and would be ideal for beefing up your suspension. The Timbren springs will provide leveling support independently of each other, increase stability and ride quality, and reduce side to side body roll. I have included a link to an...

It's specifically designed for 3/4-ton and 1-ton pickup trucks, motor homes, and commercial trucks and will provide your Dodge Ram with up to 5,000 pounds of load-leveling support reducing strain on your rear suspension. Thus improving both safety and ride quality. On the other hand, if you are looking for a softer suspension, I recommend replacing your current suspension on your 2011 Dodge...

    The Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Air Helper Springs part # AL57295 mount in place of the factory bump stops on your 2004 Dodge Ram 2500. Therefore, yes, the Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Air Helper Springs will work with the Pullrite Superglide 5th Wheel Hitch installed on your Ram. I have attached an installation video of these air bags installed on a 2006 Dodge Ram for you.

Therefore these airbags will not interfere with any of our gooseneck hitches we have for your 2012 Dodge Ram 3500. For a gooseneck hitch compatible with your vehicle I recommend using the B&W Turnoverball Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch w/ Custom Installation Kit part # BWGNRK1308 for models with the gas engine and part # BWGNRK1313 for models with the...

    The Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Air Helper Springs # AL57295 referenced in your question are confirmed to fit your 2016 Ram 3500 as long as the truck has rear leaf springs. With the truck jacked up, make sure you are first unbolting and removing the factory jounce bumper from under the frame (or from the bracket that is welded to the frame).

  • Will Reese Elite with Underbed Rails Fit in 2012 Ram 3500 with Air Bags
    The Air Lift LoadLifter # AL57295 that's already installed into your 2012 Ram 3500 won't be an issue. The air springs install to the bottom of the frame. The Underbed Rails # RP30852 is normally easier to install, although not by much. The # RP30074 requires the bolts to go through the frame which is a little more challenging than the u-shaped brackets of # RP30852. However, in your case I think the # RP30074 is probably a little easier because the air bags may make it more difficult...

The upper brackets in this kit will not interfere with the gooseneck brackets. I have linked a video showing an example installation for you. I also recommend adding a compressor system such as # F2158 so you can adjust the air pressure in the air bags from the comfort of the truck cab.

    Apparently the factory air suspension on the newer Rams such as a 2016 Ram 3500 is not a true air suspension system. Rather it is a hybrid of air bag helper springs and leaf spring suspension. So if you were to add air bags to a truck that did not come with the factory "air suspension" then it would be a similar set up. On the 1500s it is a different system, a truer air suspension.

    For your 2012 Ram 2500, you are correct that either suspension enhancement system will work. However there are major differences between them functionally. The Timbren system # TDR2500CA is a very solid jounce spring. It is a strong Aeon hollow rubber spring that is a very easy installation. It is not adjustable, and there is no maintenance. The only down side to these is that they can engage on large bumps when the truck is unloaded. This gives you a decent kick because the springs...
