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. And if your truck has a 5th wheel hitch installed, you can use the included self-drilling screws instead of the u-bolts to install the air spring kit. 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.

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.

Comments
The nice feature of air springs is that you can custom tailor the ride to just about any situation. Carrying a full load?- Add more air for less sag and more stability. Less weight on the vehicle when youre not hauling? - Let some air out of the suspension for a softer, more pliable ride.

Review from a similar LoadLifter 5000 in Vehicle Suspension


High quality and heavy duty. Good instructions as well. Just got them installed yesterday on my 2009 F-150 crew cab with 6.5' box. I also have the B&W turnover gooseneck ball hitch and my main concern was still being able to mount these. Fit like a charm, no interference at all. I wish I would have purchased them sooner. Sometimes we haul loads that might be just a bit heavy for an F-150, but we are careful. These will certainly help. I have similar air bag type suspensions install on our other two work trucks and I love them. What I did was got myself a 1/4" compression tee and plumbed both air bags into one valve. That way, they air up evenly. It comes with everything to air up each bag separately but I prefer them to be the same. They cost about $6 at any hardware store. I mounted the single air fill valve near the drivers tail light inside the box facing forward. There is an opening where the tail light harness runs up and I followed that with the air valve. I drilled a hole and snaked a tie wire down and through some finagling I managed to get the valve out the hole and mounted. Looks good and is out of the way. Install took me about 5 hours from tools out to tools away, but I was not in a big hurry. I aired them up to 70 psi and drove home looking like a hot rod with the back kicked up. Checked the air pressure this morning and all is well. No leaks as far as I can tell. Highly recommended and a great price as well. 643462

Review from a similar LoadLifter 5000 in Vehicle Suspension


Have had the air bags installed for 3-4 weeks now. Love them! Huge difference in ride quality when hauling or towing heavy loads. My only criticism is in the design. The left side fit perfect and the bag is perfectly aligned vertically but the right side bag is canted slightly. Almost as if the bottom brackets holes are drilled slightly off. I called the company and was told that up to 15 degrees is acceptable. It just looks as though the bag may wear more but time will tell I guess. I would still recommend. Also looking at purchasing the compressor system to ensure the bags always have adequate pressure. 421216

Fast shipping and excellent customer service. Will continue to purchase from etrailer. Took about 8 hrs to install the kit. I'm sure that would have been faster for someone who has done it before but I took my time. The air bags work just as I wanted and the kit appears to be high quality materials. If you purchase a kit take your time installing as it's best to fit and refit a couple times on parts of the kit to ensure everything is going as laid out by the instructions. 72041

Review from a similar LoadLifter 5000 in Vehicle Suspension


I ordered the Air Lift 5000 from etrailer and I was very pleased with doing business with them. I normally order parts from someplace else but I will be using etrailer for all my future needs. The part was delivered on time and etrailer helped me make the right choice for my needs. Helpful, knowledgeable, timely, and provided the right part for the job; 5 stars from me for that. Now onto the Air Lift 5000. I was amazed at how detailed the instructions were. They made it extremely easy to follow the instructions while building the assemblies. Probably one of the easiest part assemblies I have ever put on a truck and definitely the most detailed instructions I have ever seen. Everything bolted directly to stock mounts on the frame and no drilling was required. After getting everything mounted to the truck and installing the air lines, I was a little skeptical about the air line connections and I was afraid of leaks. I filled both air lines to 60 PSI after the install and when I checked the pressure this morning, I was still at 60 PSI. The last thing I will cover is the ride. I have not towed my trailer yet but I am excited for when I do. I dropped the air pressure to 7 PSI this morning and took a 30 mile drive. The difference this part has made is unbelievable. It still rides like a truck but it is much stiffer in the back now when driving on rough roads which adds a huge difference to the ride quality. I can only imagine the difference I will experience when towing my 12k trailer. Overall, I could not be more happy with my purchase. etrailer has 5 star customer service and they sold me a 5 star part. 484223

  • How to Determine Correct Spacers for Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Air Helper Springs in 2016 GMC Sierra
    To determine the correct spacers in for your GMC Sierra with a 4-1/2" lift and Air Lift 5000 Air Helper Springs such as # AL57338 you wll need to do a bit of measuring. There is a diagram I added from Air Lift what you will need to measure to ensure the correct spacer kit. You will need to measure the total distance between the mounting surfaces, and subtract that by 5-1/2", which is "A", the air spring design height for these air bags. That will give you the correct lift spacer, which...

I'd also recommend experimenting with raising and lower the pressure till...

    I have seen some instances of the Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 # AL57338 of having leaks, but these are mostly due to not having a completely squared off cut on the air lines and air leaking from the tubes; not the bags themselves. You'll want to try removing the line, re-cutting the line totally square and then reinstalling it on the bags; after a couple of days check the pressure on the air bags to see if you're still losing air. If you're still losing air, it's possible that the bags...

  • Is Drilling Required To Install Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 - Rear Axle # AL57338 in a 2012 Silverado

If you do not have a 5th wheel installed, then there is no drilling involved in the installation of this unit. I have attached the installation instructions for you to review and how they apply to your truck.

  • Mounting Location for Air Tank and Compressor for Air Bag Suspension on 2012 GMC Sierra 2500HD
    When the # F2239 is installed, the air tank is typically installed under the vehicle, along one of the frame members. The compressor is best located under the hood, although you can mount it along the frame members if necessary. If you want the compressor tied into the air bag system, along with having in-cab control, I would recommend using the Air Lift Air Helper Springs, part # AL57338 along with the Air Lift Quick Shot Compressor System, part # AL25690. The Air Lift springs are...

  • Will I Be Able to Keep Airlift Air Bags and Install the Reese Fifth Wheel Under Bed Rail Mounts
    According to my technical contact at Airlift the kit that you have, # AL57338, on your 2013 Chevy 2500 4 by 4 Short Bed Crew Cab Truck can be used without the upper u-bolts that wrap around the frame. Air lift has designed the upper bracket to use either u-bolts or self taping screws to secure the upper bracket to the frame of your truck. As shown in the included instructions on page 3 and 4 part K is included as optional hardware for vehicles equipped with fifth wheel hitches that...

  • Airbags for 2016 Chevy Silverado 3500 With B&W Companion Fifth Wheel Hitch
    Yes, you can use airbags on your 2016 Chevy Silverado 3500 with the B&W # BWGNRK1016 installed. I highly recommend the Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Air Helper Springs # AL57338 that has included hardware that is designed to be used on trucks with fifth wheel hitch brackets; the only thing to note is that you will need to drill into your Silverado's frame in order to install airbags. The LoadLifter 5000 allows you to adjust the air pressure of each bag individually from 5 psi to 100...

  • How to Use Air Lift LoadLifter Air Bags on a 2015 GMC Sierra 2500 with 6 Inch Lift
    Yes, the Air Lift LoadLifter 7500 XL Air Helper Springs part # AL57538 will work on your 2015 GMC Sierra 2500. However, you don't need to use the 7500 XL system nor would I advise it. Instead, I recommend the Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Air Helper Springs part # AL57338. The 7,500 lb and 5,000 lb weight capacity you see is for pin/tongue weight, not gross trailer weight as the the pin/tongue weight is the only part that is directly over the top of the airbags. They will however both do an...

  • Does Replacement Bracket 03962 for Air Lift Air Bag Kit Come with Mounting Hardware
    Replacement Lower Bracket # AL03962 for Air Lift kit # AL57338 is just the bracket. Looking at the instructions, linked for reference you would also need half the quantity listed for parts L, M, J, I, F, N, and O (if just replacing one side). The kit has a lifetime warranty so if the kit broke somehow Air Lift should warrant out the required parts.

  • Replacement Brackets for the Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Air Helper Springs Part # AL57362
    The correct Replacement Lower Bracket for the Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Air Helper Springs part # AL57362 is part 03421, not the Replacement Lower Bracket part # AL03962. This bracket only fits the Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Air Helper Springs part # AL57338. They are not universal. We currently do not carry the correct Replacement Lower Bracket part 03421 which means you would need to contact the manufacturer Air Lift, for replacement.
