Air Lift's LoadLifter 5000 springs provide full-time, first-class support for your truck. With this kit, you get a safer ride and simultaneously protect your vehicle from the strain that comes with constantly hauling heavy 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.

Chevrolet Silverado 1500

Installed this kit a month ago and used it three times pulling my travel trailer. Works as described and has performed as I expected it to. I have a GMC 1500 and no matter if I have my travel trailer with a 600lb tongue weight or 6'x10' single axle trailer with a 160lb tongue weight, with load of course, my truck would squat in the back. I already added a sway control/weight distribution system and now wanted to get my truck in the right configuration while pulling. For safety and performance. After reading a lot of reviews I chose this kit. This kit was easy to install but did take 3 or 4 hours. I wasn't in a rush and wanted to make sure I followed everything in the instructions and not miss anything. I didn't want to rush through it to miss a critical step and then lose brake fluid due to a hole in a brake line. Mainly didn't want to break anything important nor did I want to puncture the air lifts or the poly lines. Kit went on as expected and fit perfectly. The instructions included pictures and examples to follow that illustrate how everything fits and where everything should be routed. I would definitely buy again. 589432

Worked perfect. The only complaint I would have is, I never received the little wire to thread the bolt through. A little duct tape on a piece of wire did the same thing. Another issue was on the jounce bumper - the framework of it, I had to grind a little of it away for the air fitting to cleanly swivel. If I did not, the air swivel was "a little snug". It didn't take much either to fix it. Total install time, doing it by myself around 5 hours. By the picture, you can see where I ground it away. Again - did not have to grind that much, but wanted to be sure. 647862

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

It has changed the ride on my vehicle for everyday driving. It is a very rough ride. 667714


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


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

    For your 2018 Chevy Silverado 1500 with the 2 inch lift I recommend the Air Lift LoadLIfter 5000 Air Helper Springs # AL57204 because of their superior mounting brackets.

  • Spacer Kit to Be Used with Air Lift Suspension Enhancement for 2013 GMC Sierra with 2 inch Lift

  • Is There an Air Lift Air Bag Kit that Will Fit 2014 Chevy Silverado 1500 with 7 inch Lift
    We most likely have a solution but you'll have to determine the exact amount of lift your kit added to the height of your suspension. Typically lifts are around 1 inch shorter than what they are advertised at so a 7 inch lift usually gives a 6 inch total lift. Which we have a lift spacer that fits this with the 6 inch lift spacer part # AL52460 that you could use with the Air Lift 5000 that fits your 2014 Chevy Silverado 1500 part # AL57204 that you referenced.

  • Can Air Lift Suspension Kit for 2014 Chevy Silverado 1500 Install on Truck with Leveling Kit
    You should be fine installing the Air Lift kit part # AL57204 without any spacers as normally a lift as small as yours isn't enough to prevent the bags from working properly. The Air Lift spacers start at 2 inches which would be too tall. I attached an install video for this for you to check out as well.

If you wanted to install a 5th wheel hitch on your truck and still use airbags you would need to use the Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Air Helper Springs part # AL57204 instead as they mount on the bottom of the frame rail and will allow for use with the frame brackets for a 5th wheel hitch.

  • Will Airbags Work with a Gooseneck Hitch on a 2016 Chevrolet Silverado 1500
    I do have an airbag kit and gooseneck hitch that will work with one another on your 2016 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 but the Air Lift Ride Control Air Helper Springs part # AL59565 is not compatible with an in-bed hitch. Instead you will want to use a different set of airbags that will allow for the use of a gooseneck hitch like the Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Air Helper Springs part # AL57204 for 5-1/2' and 6-1/2' beds or part # AL57211 for 8' beds. The above LoadLifter 5000 system will...

  • Recommended Air Helper Springs for 2014 Chevy Silverado 1500 with 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch
    I do have an option for you, however there is not a Firestone Air Spring kit available that will fit with an in-bed hitch on your 2014 Chevy Silverado 1500. The Firestone # F2702 you referenced is only a fit for the 2500 and 3500 models. The Firestone # F2430 you also mentioned is confirmed to fit your truck, however it is not compatible with an in-bed hitch like the PullRite SuperGlide that you plan on installing. For your Chevy Silverado 1500, I instead recommend looking at the Air...

  • What Does Decreased Ride Quality When Using the Timbren Enhancement System Really Mean
    When towing a heavy trailer with your 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500, the rear suspension will most likely drop due to the added weight placed on the vehicle. This added weight is going to cause issues such as improper headlight aim, poor braking, and an overall decreased sense of handling. Therefore, suspension enhancements like the Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement System part # TGMRCK15S are needed. The Timbrens work by placing a dense piece of rubber spring between the frame and...

  • Rear Axle Air Bag Kit for 2015 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 4WD with B&W Gooseneck Hitch
    For your 2015 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 4WD that has a B&W gooseneck hitch installed the compatible rear axle air bag kits I suggest are AirLift # AL57204 for the short bed or # AL57211 for the long bed. I confirmed compatibility with my technical contact at AirLift. With either kit I suggest you consider adding an on-board compressor. Being able to air up the bags while you're driving (instead of you having to pull over to fill them) makes it much easier to find the ideal pressure for...

  • Correct Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Air Helper Springs for a 2019 Chevy Silverado 1500
    The correct Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Air Helper Springs for a 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is part # AL57288. The Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Air Helper Springs part # AL57204 which is for a 2015 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 won't fit.

  • 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Install Bracket Kit and Air Bag Kit to Work Together on a 2016 Chevy 1500
    The fifth wheel install bracket kit you referenced, part # RP50082-58, is for Ford trucks and doesn't fit your 2016 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 short bed. For your truck you need part # RP50064-58. Unfortunately, the Firestone helper springs, part # F2430, are not confirmed to fit with fifth wheel brackets. Instead I recommend using Air Lift helper springs, part # AL57204, which will work. Although you may need to do some drilling to install both parts.

  • Recommended Air Bag Kit for a 2016 GMC Sierra 1500 Without Leaf Spring Suspension
    We do have air bag kits for your 2016 GMC Sierra 1500 that don't use the U-Bolts like you see with the Firestone Air Bag Kit # F2430 that you referenced. Air Lift is actually another popular air bag kit manufacturer and they have part # AL57204 if you have a short bed or part # AL57211 if you have the 8' long bed. These install in the same location as the Firestone kit, have a weight rating of 5,000 lbs, and do not require drilling in the frame unless you have a 5th wheel or gooseneck...
