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.

2003 Ford F-250 Super Duty

I’ve had the airbags for a year. They work great. I installed them on a 2003 crew cab long bed F250 diesel I drive everyday in my contracting business. I am constantly loaded with tools and trailers and equipment. They have not leaked air and improved the ride of my truck. Easy to install and no issues. Great product.

2005 Ford F-350 Super Duty

Easy ordering, easy to find what I needed. Web page was easy to navigate I hate emails Google search anything of that nature. I like to go to the store and buy in person. A hands on type of guy. This process made me feel comfortable and at ease knowing I bought the right product. I highly recommend and thank you for making it simple to find what I needed not to mention got here ahead of time

2004 Ford F-350 Super Duty



Great product was Incorrect for my B&W hitch but being a welder fabricator I slightly modified the mounts to work properly .the f350 takes the set that mounts to the inside of the spring to work properly these fit atop the spring..

Air Lift air springs are good and dependable, use them for the last 25 years on three pick-ups always worked great. My complaint would be against the lousy packaging which came with two or three holes and all messed up, luckily all that was missing was one washer.


just getting done putting my 5000 Justable air springs put them on about three hours I didn’t have any left I did them on the ground so that’s not too bad I’m gonna be sending some pictures along with us so thanks very much and I hope they work


I installed these air lift bags in a day. It was a lot longer than I thought, but it was in the middle of winter in an unheated shop and only basic hand tools. No hoist, so there were a lot of up and down trips with a creeper. Very good installation manual which made the process easy. Very happy with the purchase.


I installed these on a 2004 Ram 2500. I have towed an 11k fifth wheel approximately 10,000 miles with them and couldn’t be happier. The hardest part was figuring out where to put the airlines. I decided to run them through the existing frame holes and drill out the top license plate screws to give them a stealthy look with easy access to fill. Install didn’t take more than 2 hours with air tools.


The hitch and box arrived in exceiient conditon. I have yet to take the rig for a good test drive. I took it for a short drive but need more time with ot to fully appreciate its capabilities. The installation was a breeze. Fitment was perfect.


The product was exactly as advertised. The installation instructions and video were easy to follow.


Installed thes a year ago. I use them to pull my 35 foot fifth wheel camper. They are fantastic I recently added the wireless remote air compressor kit. I really love that!


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.


Excellent. Air Bag kit came in 2 days. Installed today on a 2022 Ford F150 Platinum 4X4 with rear axle mounted headlight leveling arm. Installed in a couple hours. Looks great and works excellent!


First, looking at the website was pretty easy to navigate. Ordered product and confirmed delivery email sent that evening. Received two days later. Box a little damaged, but that was on FEDEX. However everything inside in tact and instructions were simple to follow.

The product, I wish I would have gotten these years ago. Makes the unloaded ride much better and not so “horse bucking” that I was used to. I usually loaded the back with 150 lbs of sand. No longer, rides smooth. Haven’t had a loaded test yet but looking forward to it.


Kit is well designed... However; Its a Premium priced kit with cheap hardware, steel nuts and bolts used instead of stainless - they will rust quickly, air fittings are cheap and air hose is obviously the cheapest they could find - very inconsistent in diameter and doesn't seal well in the fittings.


We just installed this last night on our truck. The instructions are easy to fallow. We will get our new 5th wheel next weekend so we will see then if they hold up. We love excellent customer service and fast shipping. Chris W thank you so much for taking care of our order so quick!!! We are working so hard on getting everything installed before we get our new 5th wheel!!! Your Amazing!!


The air bags fit perfectly and the directions were easy to follow. I am genuinely impressed with the customer service. I called with a concern for the shipping, and had great assistance from the representatives I spoke with. Well done, and thank you.


It seems like the design was not re-engineered for the current (2023) model ford f150. The directions for brackets for brake lines and wire harness are not the same as in the instructions. Also the I bolt on the drivers side does not clear the brake line. I had to disconnect the brake line all along the groans to make it fit. Now the brake lines are not mounted the way they’re supposed to be. I hope I don’t have a problem with that.


Air Lift Loadmaster kit was fairly easy to install and definitely made a difference! It did take roughly 4-5 hours by myself but that includes prep, ABS and emergency brake relocation, Schrader valve installation and leak check. My only advice would be to give tech tips like a 10mm deepwell socket to remove the jounce bumper on late model Chevrolets/GMC's. I spent 30 minutes trying to figure that one out alone! So far I'm really impressed with the outcome! Thanks!


This is my second truck I've installed the airlift system on. The installation went smooth, just like before; after watching the installation video it took maybe a couple hours. I had them aired up and hitched the truck to the fifth wheel, and it made a big difference with leveling the hitch load. I'm very pleased with them.

    The Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Air Helper Springs # AL57291 that you referenced are confirmed to fit your 2006 Ford F-350, however they are only compatible with the older B&W Turnoverball hitches 1105 or 1199R. If this is what you have installed on your truck, this system will work perfectly. The air springs feature a 5,000 pound load-leveling capacity and they will do a really nice job of enhancing the rear suspension of your F-350 to better handle the weight of your trailer and cargo.

  • Are Replacement Bracket Parts Available For Air Springs On A 2001 Ford F-350
    To be completely honest it's unbelievably more expensive to part together everything you need versus just purchasing new air spring kit, which would have everything needed for installation. The 5318 part number you provided didn't come back to an Air Lift part number but did come back as a Firestone bellow part number 1T17BB2. Both Air Lift and Firestone have also made it much harder to get replacement brackets because they want you to purchase all new kits and have their warranty. I...

  • Difference Between Air Lift Suspension Kits that Fit 2001 Ford F-250 4x4
    Air Lift does have a number of options for suspension enhancement that fits your 2001 Ford F-250 4x4. A good portion of the reason there are so many fits is that there's some overlap from other vehicle fits they had to make for other vehicles that also happen to fit your truck as well as some of the kits have the internal jounce bumper for more support. So we have the part # AL57215 which has the jounce bumper and does not fit with in-bed hitches. This would be great application for heavy...

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommendation for 2002 Ford F-250 Short Bed Towing 2020 Grand Design 150 Series
    I checked out the 2020 Grand Design 150 and since it has a tapered nose and an extended pin box plus the fact that your short bed 2002 Ford F-250 is on the longer side you would not need a slider hitch to make tight turns. So you could use a B and W Companion fixed hitch like the part # BWRVK3500 with the rail kit part # BWGNRK1108 which is custom fit for your truck. This will give you what most consider to be the nicest and quietest fifth wheel hitch out there that uses a rail kit that...

    I do have a solution, but the Air Lift # AL57291 is only compatible with the B&W 1105 and 1199R. These and other Air Lift air bags will not work with the # BWGNRK1108. What you can use instead is the Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs # F2400. Even if the Air Lift did fit, I would recommend the Firestone since they have a superior design and will be more reliable. These have the same 5,000 lb load leveling capacity and won't interfere with your B&W hitch once installed. Since you're...
