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.

Video Transcript for Air Lift Ride Control Air Helper Springs Installation - 2006 Dodge Ram Pickup

Today on our 2006 Dodge Ram 2500 we'll be installing the Air Lift Load Controller II Compressor System for Air Helper Springs, part number AL25592. We'll be adding this to a previously installed air bag system, part number AL57295, the LoadLifter 5000 Air Helper Springs. We'll go over operation of our new Air Lift Compressor system. To air up the system we're going to go ahead and turn on the ignition. Now, the pressure switch will automatically kick on the compressor to bring it up to the minimum pressure. Pushing the toggle switch in the UP position will trigger the compressor and increase the air pressure in the air bags.

Now, once we have it aired up where we need it, we can go ahead and tow or carry our load. To release the air from the system, bring it back down to the original right height, we'll simply press on the button here below the switch to let the air out. To begin our install, we're first going to go ahead and find a mounting location and secure the compressor. In this application there's no room under the hood, so we're going to mount it here on the frame between the transfer case and the front of the gas tank. To secure the compressor we're going to use the self-tapping screws provided with the install kit. Once we have the compressor mounted, we're going to move inside and start mounting our gauge unit.

Here's our single switch gauge. On the backside of the gauge we'll have 2 electrical connections and 1 air line. We're going to mount the gauge unit here in this pocket, so in order to do that we're going to have to make a hole large enough in the back of the pocket to allow for the air hose. To do that, I'm going to go ahead and set it in place, mark it, and then drill out a pilot hole. A pilot hole will allow us to determine how much will need to be drilled out to allow for our air line. Once I have my pilot hole drilled, I'm going to go ahead and enlarge it enough to get the air line and wiring through.

We're going to need to cut out a larger area for the 3-way fitting to fit through the pocket. To do that, I'm going to use a rotary tool to cut out this section. Now with our cut out made, you can see our gauge unit is going to sit real nicely. Next, we need to run the air line and wiring through the back of the dash and out to our gauge. The air line and wiring that we'll be using has been preformed by the manufacturer.

One side is going to have the pressure sensing switch. The other side will go to the back of the gauge. We'll have 2 wires and 1 air line. As we pulled the line through, we kinked the end of it so we're going to go ahead and trim off a little bit. To trim it, we're going to use the Air Lift Air Hose Cutter, part number AL10530, which will give us a clean, square cut on the line without crimping it. Next, we'll need to install the hose onto the fitting. Before we make the attempt, we're going to go ahead and soak the hose in some hot water, which will make it more pliable and easier to get all the way up on our fitting for a nice seal. We'll let the air line sit 3 to 5 minutes while we wait for the hot water to soften the line. Now with our air line softened, we'll go ahead and remove it from the hot water and install it to the back of our gauge unit. Then we'll take the 2 wire connectors that we fed through with our air line and plug into the back of the switch. Next, we'll need to run 2 wires for our gauge light. We'll use a red and black wire provided with the install kit following the same route of our air lines and wire harness for the switch. To assist in routing my wires through the console, I'm going to go ahead and use a piece of air tubing. Once we have access to it here underneath the dash, we can then feed our wires into the tubing where I'll attach it with some electrical tape and pull them into position. We'll strip back both wires. We'll go ahead and add the connectors provided with the install kit and crimp it down. Next, we can plug our wires into the back of the gauge light. We're going to identify black as the ground and red as the power, but it doesn't matter which terminal we'll use as it just completes closing the circuit in order to illuminate the light behind the gauge. Now, with all our wires and air line installed into the gauge, we'll go ahead and clean up our wires by securing them to the air line and mounting the gauge in position. Next, we're going go ahead and remove one of the dashboard panels here on the side of the dash so we can gain access to our headlight switch and ultimately the running light circuit for power to our gauge unit. Using a plastic pry bar, you could also use a flat bladed screwdriver, we're going to get behind the panel and pop it free. Once we have the panel back out of the way, we'll gain access to the manufacturer's wiring harness that runs to the headlight switch. Now that we have access to the wiring behind the headlight switch, we'll go ahead and ground our test light, pull the wiring to where we can gain access to them. We'll identify the orange wire with a black stripe as our running light circuit. We'll go ahead a separate that from the harness, then we need to route our red wire underneath the dash and up to the headlight switch wiring. Keep in mind when routing any of your wires or lines to make sure you stay away from moving components such as the brake pedal or steering shaft, or hot items such as exhaust. Once we figure out our wire length, we can go ahead and cut off the excess, and then to connect the 2 wires together we'll use the quick splice connector provided with the install kit. The quick splice connector will go over top of the manufacturer's wire and then we'll take our power wire, slide it into the connector, and crimp it down. Once we have it crimped down, we can close the clasp. Now with our connection made, we can go ahead and re-install the dash panel. Next, we're going to route our second air line and wiring harness up the fire wall, reutilizing the manufacturer's grommet. If there isn't a hole in it, you can simply use a utility knife or razor blade to cut a small slice and then feed your hose and wire harness through it. We'll move back inside to complete our routing and connections. To give us our best angle in installing the air line into the pressure switch, we're going to route it around the bracket here in the dash, back down where we gain access to it. We'll route the air line, wiring harness, and pressure switch into position, line up the pressure switch with the air line. Push it in firmly, pulling it out to lock it in place. We'll then take the wiring harness and install it into the pressure switch pigtail. Next, we'll take the ground wire from our gauge light. We'll route the ground wire over to the firewall and out through the grommet. Part of the wiring harness that was attached to the air line that I ran between our low pressure switch and our gauge end switch was the power wire. This power wire also has a fuse attached to it between here and the switch. It is just behind the console here on the driver's side. The power wire is going to need to get run to the fuse box. We'll have to add some length of wire to it and route it out and under the hood. We'll use the extra piece of wire that we cut off from the power wire from our gauge light along with a spade connector. We'll follow the ground wire that we ran previously for the gauge light out and into the engine compartment. Now that we've secured all our wiring inside the cab of the vehicle, we'll go ahead and move back underneath where we can take the air line that we routed up inside and ultimately to the low pressure switch and route it along the frame rail to our compressor. As I route it, I'll go ahead and secure it as necessary. Now that we've run back to the compressor, you can see that we've got some extra air line. To trim this air line off, we can simply cut the line and move the wiring harness back or bundle it up. To do that, we'll use our tubing cutter, cut the line. Now with the line cut we'll need to remove the T from the other end. To do that, we'll press on the collar of the T and pull the line out. I'll go ahead and make a new line to come out of the other side of our T to go to the compressor. Again, to remove it we'll pull back on the collar and remove the line. We can use the excess line that we just cut off as the second line coming out of the T to the compressor. I'll go ahead and remove the electrical tape holding the wire to the air line. Now, to figure out my length, I'll just go ahead and install the T on one side and then the new air line into the other. Measure it out and cut the length. Like we did previously, we'll go ahead and soak the line in some hot water to help soften the line and make it easier to install onto the fitting of our compressor. Once we let the line soak long enough, we'll go ahead and put it onto the barbed fitting. Now we can either take our wire and wrap it up and just zip tie off the excess after we connect it directly to the power wire for our compressor or what we're going to do is use the Deka Heat Shrink Butt Connector by cutting off the excess from the power wire coming from the low pressure switch and the power wire here from the compressor. We'll go ahead and take the length of wire. We can mark it and cut off the spade terminal and excess wire. Then we'll strip back both ends and add our butt connector. Now that we've got both sides stripped back, we'll go ahead and crimp them down. Using a heat gun, heat up the butt connectors so the heat shrink will seal up around the wire, creating a good sealed connection. Note, because this connection is exposed, if you dont use a heat shrink butt connector, we recommend to wrap it up with some black electrical tape to help keep it free from dirt, dust, debris, and moisture. Next, we'll take the ground wire and use a self-tapping screw and secure it directly to the frame. Now, with our ground wire secured, we'll need to take an air line and run it from our T back to the air bags where we'll install a T to secure the air line coming from the compressor to the air bag. We'll take our extra length of hose here, provided with the install kit, slide it into the T, pull back to lock it in place, and then we're going to route it down the frame rail back to the air bags that we're previously installed. Now, I've got our air line run here to the back. We'll locate the air line for the manual valve for the rear air bags. We're going to cut into the line. We'll use the T thats provided with the install kit and repeat the same process as we did earlier of installing the line into the T. Then we'll take our air line from the compressor, mark our length, cut off the excess, and install it into the third leg of our T. Back here in the engine compartment, we've got our ground wire for the gauge light and the power wire for the switch and compressor. I'm going to route the wires here along the firewall. To assist in routing the wires, I'm going to use a pull wire, which can be a stiff piece of wire or, in this case, a piece of air tubing. Get the pull wire routed where I want it, send my wire in it, and then pull it into place. For the ground wire, we can go right here to the manufacturer's ground. To do that, I'll go ahead and mark my length. Before you add your ring terminal though, recommend to remove the ground stud to check the size of the stud to make sure your ring terminal's large enough. It's a little bit too small, so we'll step it up in size. Once you select the right size ring terminal, strip it back, go ahead and put it onto our wire, and crimp it down. We'll then go ahead and re-install the ground stud, securing our ring terminal. Using our test light, we're going to go ahead and check the fuses that don't have power with the ignition off. There will be some that have power, like that one. Now, we're going to turn the ignition on and check this 15 amp fuse to make sure it has power with the ignition on and we can use it as our fuse to tap into. It does have power, so we'll go ahead and turn the ignition back off, remove the fuse from the port. Supplied with the install kit will be the fuse tap and there are multiple fuse taps in the kit for the different fuse sizes. We'll be using the one that fits the minifuse here. The fuse tap will slide over the leg of the fuse, then come up and around the body of the fuse. Then we can put the fuse back into the port. With our power wire run into position, we'll go ahead and route it into the fuse box, install the connector, and put it onto the fuse tap. Now, we'll need to bend the fuse tap over so it'll fit here inside the fuse box. To make it easier to close the lid, I'm going to cut a small V to allow for the wire here into the fuse box. Here's using a pair of side cutters, cut out a small section, then close the lid to the fuse box. We'll air up our new system so that we can check it. To check it we're going to use a soap and water solution and spray our connection points. With air pressure on the system, any leaks should bubble up. With that, this will complete the install of the Air Lift Load Controller II Compressor System, part number AL25592, on our 2006 Dodge Ram 2500. .

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

Review from a similar Air Lift 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

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

I have had the air bags installed for over a year now. From the boat ramp, camper and dump trailer these things just work GREAT. I will add a set of these to every truck i owe from now on! So nice to be able to level you truck out regardless it being a large or small load. They truly give your truck a safer ride when towing! 526431

Came well packaged, all itsy bitsy parts accounted for. Says no drilling required but you will need a cutting wheel or hacksaw to cut a bolt off. Instructions are pretty good but pictures sometimes don't show exactly what you need to know. My favorite part 2 hrs install. We all know that means at least 4. One more hour and I'll be finished. 426268

One year later I still like these airbags.My truck rides level and handles smoothly. Without a load, however, its stiff in back and bounces, even with the airbags deflated.

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

Great air bags. Install was straightforward and the directions were perfect. Really helps if you have a friend assist. One under the truck and one from the top makes it much faster. 543324

The addition of the Air Lift is by far something I should have done years ago. I was short in time so I had my local Midas shop install them. They work so well. I only needed 20 lbs. of pressure to level the truck and trailer. On the road, the trailer rode better, braking felt better, and the up and down motion I disliked going over bumps is gone. Awesome product for safety while towing. 568497

About a year ago, I installed this on my 2013 Ram 1500 with the hemi. I pull an enclosed 6x12 trailer with my tools and equipment in it. The trailer has a heavy tongue weight and is driven in city traffic every day. This kit has saved my front tires from wearing any more than they did as well as how easy it is to adjust the height of the truck based on my current load. I recommend it. 295497

Great product! Easy install. Tech Tip, On my 2018 F250 in order to install the driver side air bag unbolt the lower shock mounting bolt and swing shock up and out of the way. Have a 2018 28.5 Jayco fifth wheel 1400 LBS pin weight only need 10 psi to level the truck! Rides great! Thanks Again E Trailer 566616

Review from a similar Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 in Vehicle Suspension


I haul a 8' truck camper that pops up, it has a app. 1400 # weight to it. I also pull a 17' Lund boat that is loaded with my 2011 Dodge 1500. When I first put the truck camper on the truck before installation of the air bags, my truck squatted 6", basically it bottomed out. But when I put the air bags on, WOW, what a difference it made. Now when I travel down the road, there is no more swaying, or bouncing like it use to do on my Chevey that I use to haul it all with without any air bags. But now I see Dodge these are put on all their trucks. I am SO HAPPY I purchased these, & would recommend them to anyone. I told my neighbor about them & he put a set on his F2500, to pull his 31' 5th wheel, & he loves them. I was 65yrs. young when I purchased & installed these Air Bags, & was a welder for 45yrs.. nut if you have any doubts weather you can put them on. Well relax the video that shows you how to put them on when you purchased them makes it a breeze. I hope this easess your mind if you are in doubt about making the purchase. And the price I believe was more than fare. Good Luck to All, And May GOD RICHLY BLESS ALL WHO CALL ON HIS NAME. 345917

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

The product was delivered in a perfect condition and as scheduled. Very simple installation for 2016 Ford F150. The Ride with 5 lbs is better than the factory ride. I thought it would be a rough based on what others said. The rear height did get raised by 1/2" at 5 lbs. With a good bicycle pump it took 4 pumps to get to 20 lbs., that's much better than getting out the the compressor. 485152

This was an airbag install that took me about 4 hours. I did this in my garage with a minimum of tools. I did end up about an inch higher bed height even with empty airbags and no weight on the vehicle but this may come down with use. The shipping from etrailer was fast and the sales agents have firm grasp of their products and installation procedures. I can always get a straight answer from them. I also ordered the curt under bed gooseneck hitch. This took me about 8 hours to install but I was in no hurry and wanted it done right. Thanks etrailer for great service. 491845

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

Review from a similar Air Lift 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

The product arrive in a timely matter as with everything that I have purchased from e-trailer , the only problem I had was there were some lock nuts missing from the package , 2 pouches were opened when I opened the box , [ this was from the factory not e-trailer fought ] the photo's in the installation booklet could have been a little clearer , my truck has sway bars and none of the photo's showed them that I could see and the installation book didn't talk about them , Had to figure it out on my own . Other than that no problems , took about 4 hours to install , a 4 point drive on lift would be a great help , also remove the spare tire , it helps 513733

Finished the install last weekend fairly smoothly. I jacked up one side of the truck at a time since I only had one jack. Had to put the jack on cinder blocks to get it high enough to engage the leaf spring front mount. One comment/suggestion for the installation guide. The only thing I struggled with was the parking brake cable. It was exactly in the way of engaging the bottom bracket to the axle. No matter how I moved the bracket it would not clear the cable. Then the light came on, release the brake dummy! Once the brake was released there was plenty of room to engage the assembly onto the axle. Of course, I did put some chalks on the front tires to keep the truck from rolling while I was underneath... No leaks, and it seems to ride much smoother than before. Thanks for a great product, 104826


Comments

I still like the product but it seems to have a slow leak somewhere and will not hold air pressure for a week at the original setting. Guess I need to do a bubble leak test, just have not gotten to it. Other than that the product is great.

Previously installed Firestone air helper springs in my Ford F250. Wish I would have ordered them instead of the Air Lift helper springs. While quality of Air Lift appears to be good, installation compared to installing the Firestone system is a real bear. Firestone easily as good quality and much simpler/easier to install. 99455

Do you have a question about this Vehicle Suspension?


  • 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...

  • Recommended Gooseneck Trailer Hitch for a 2012 Dodge Ram 3500 with Air-Lift Airbags
  • The Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Air Helper Springs part # AL57295 attaches to top of the rear axle below the factory bump stop mounts. 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...

  • Comparing The Air Lift LoadLifter vs Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement Systems
  • 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...

  • Compatibility of 5th Wheel Base Rail Installation with AirLIft Air Bag Kit
  • The specs for the Andersen Ultimate Connection 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch System # AM3200 indicate "no pivot" because this hitch is a fixed-type adapter that does not pivot front-to-back or side-to-side the way an actual 5th wheel hitch head can. For example, Curt 5th wheel hitch # C16120 uses an axial bearing that lets the head assembly pivot on the base to make hitching easier. With the Andersen adapter the hitch ball is rigidly fixed and coupling the trailer to it will therefore require...

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.

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.
