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 Vehicle Suspension - Rear Axle Suspension Enhancement - AL57298 Review

Speaker 1: Today we're gonna take a look at the Air Lift LoadLifter 5000, air helper springs for the rear axle. Now this is a custom fit part, it is designed to fit the 1971-1991 Ford F150, F250, and F350 trucks, and the 1992-2004 Ford F-250 and F350 trucks. And on a custom fit part like this, I do recommend for you to go to our website, use our fit guide, put in your year and model vehicle and it'll show you if this part will work for your application.Now this kit will provide your vehicle with up to 5,000 pounds of load leveling support, helps reduce strain on your rear suspension and improves both safety and ride quality. They are designed for heavy duty applications, such as three-quarter ton and one-ton trucks, motor homes and commercial trucks. They will help keep your vehicle level when you're hauling a heavy load. They do improve your steering and breaking performance, helps to maintain safe headlighting and also keeps your tires from wearing unevenly.It will let you manually adjust your air pressure to get the even load distribution and support that you need.

You can level your vehicle front to rear, or inflate each spring independently for side to side leveling of off center loads. This does reduce the strain on your OEM suspension that can be caused by extremely heavy loads, and it does improve overall stability and ride quality by diminishing your sway and absorbs road shock for a nice smooth ride.It does come with these Air Lift exclusive upper and lower row plates. Now these row plates will help increase the load capacity of the air springs, and they also protect the springs from any damage, which extends the life of your air spring suspension. The spring itself is constructed of a two-ply fabric reinforced rubber. The end caps on the springs, they're made of a high-strength Zytel nylon, which is lighter, stronger and more corrosion resistant than steel.Now this kit does come with everything I laid out here on the table.

The mounting brackets, all the hardware you need to install it. Also it comes with the bag with the air lines in it and the manual inflation valves, and the manual valves are typically mounted on your bumper for easy access. Now, you can add a compressor system with in cab gauges, which we do sell separately on our website. Those items could be added to monitor and automatically adjust your air pressure. This kit is made in the U.S.A.A few specs on it.

The load leveling capacity is up to 5,000 pounds. Now the LoadLifter 5000 springs will not increase your vehicle's weight carrying capacity, so you do wanna make sure not to exceed the manufacturer's recommended weight limit. And the springs are adjustable, the air pressure in them goes anywhere from 5 PSI to 100 PSI. But that should do it for the review on the Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 air helper springs for the rear axle.

I installed the product yesterday. It took 6 hours working alone including a trip to the village to buy a new corded electric drill. Installation required drilling 8 holes in the frame and 4 holes in the upper brackets. Anyone attempting this installation be wary of the brake line and wiring harness behind the driver side frame. My impression is that the kit is good quality and should provide excellent service. I am anxious to hook up the travel trailer and put this system to the test. 718962

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

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.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.

Air lift suspension is still working great after a year. Had a couple of minor air leaks at first but no problems after I fixed them. Good quality product.

The air bags went in great, and pretty easy. I did not like the recommended location for the air valves. So I put them through the body panels to have them inside the back doors. They work great like that. I just put in a 7/16” grommet in the panel to run the air line through the outside panel. Works great and easy to fill with air. 544314

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

Loved it! Easy install and other than having to fill it manually, because compressor went out, soon after installation, it was a great choice! 706997

  • Fit and Compatibility of Fifth Wheel with Air Lift 5000 Load Lifters on a 2001 Ford F-250 Super Duty
  • Depending on which part number your Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 is will determine if the RV store is correct or not. AirLift made special kits to work in combination with the 5th wheels. # AL57393 will fit with fifth wheel and gooseneck hitch. # AL57298 will fit with a Reese fifth wheel # RP30869 you were looking at and the # RP30035 installation kit. # AL57291 will fit on trucks with a B&W fifth wheel hitch 1105 or 1199R. If you could tell me which kit you have I'd be more than...

  • Air Lift or Helper Spring Recommendation for a 2000 Ford F-250 Super Duty Towing a Camper Trailer
  • The product that will work best for you will depend on how you will be using your truck and why you are looking for a suspension enhancement system. If you are looking to level your truck because you do a lot of hauling with varying load weights and tow the trailer occasionally then the air bags would work well. I would recommend using the Air Lift LoadLifter air springs, # AL57298, for 2 wheel drive or, # AL57390 for 4 wheel drive models of the 2000 F250. I recommend these air bags...

  • Air bag Helper Springs for a 1995 Minnie Winnie Winnebago on a Ford Van Chassis
  • The first thing needed is to determine if the chassis is really on a Ford F-350 truck chassis, E-350 van chassis, or Ford F-53 motorhome chassis. The F-53 chassis is for Class A motorhomes so it would not be correct. And there are so few RVs built on the F-350 truck chassis that it likely isn't that either. From what I could find they were built on the E-series van chassis based on the parts catalogs and other information from Winnebago. For that chassis you can use Firestone air bags...

  • Air Lift That Fits 2004 Ford F-250 With Gooseneck Hitch
  • There are Air Lift Air Helper Springs which will work for your 2004 Ford F-250, although part # AL57298 is designed only to be used if your truck had a Reese fifth wheel hitch installed. What you need is either the Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Air Helper Springs # AL57393 is your '04 F-250 is 2WD or # AL57390 if your F-250 is 4WD. These springs come with hardware and that will allow you to use them with a gooseneck hitch, though it will require you to drill a hole in the brackets if your...

  • Rear Suspension Enhancement For a 2000 Ford Super Duty With a Gooseneck Hitch
  • The Air Lift LoadLifter 5000, # AL57298, was designed to work with specific gooseneck hitches because it installs on the outboard side of the frame rails on your Ford Super Duty. This kit will fit the 2WD models only. If you can tell me what type of hitch you have in your truck, I can check the compatibility with this kit. This kit will not fit with gooseneck hitches that mount with custom brackets on the outboard side of the frame rails. Another option from Air Lift is the LoadLifter...

  • Compatibility of Husky Universal 5th Wheel Hitch Install Kit on 2004 Ford F350-w/ Air Suspension
  • According to Husky, their Universal 5th wheel hitch install kit, part # HT31563 is indeed a fit for your 2004 Ford F350. The # HT31563 only includes the frame brackets and their mounting hardware. You'll also need the bed rails that mount in the pickup truck bed, which are included in the full kit, part # HT31563-686. If you already have a set of Husky bed rails, you can reuse them, but if the rails were manufactured by anybody else, I wouldn't recommend mixing the manufacturers of the...

  • Will Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Bolt on to 2006 GMC Sierra 3500 with No Drilling
  • The Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Air Springs, part # AL57298, you referenced are for Ford trucks from the early 1970's to the mid-2000's. So they won't fit your 2006 GMC Sierra 3500 at all. Instead you want part # AL57275 which is the version of the LoadLifter 5000 springs that do fit your truck. And they do bolt on without much drilling. I've linked a video of the kit being installed on a 2005 Silverado which will be a similar process as your truck.
