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 LoadLifter Air Helper Springs Installation - 2004 Ford F-250

Today on our 2004 Ford F250 we'll be installing the Air Lift Load Lifter 5000 air helper springs, part number AL573090. Now today our F250 has a 6 inch lift on it, but the Load Lifter 5000 will still bolt into place, now again because our vehicle has a suspension lift on it we dont need to expand the suspension on the truck, but it is a good idea to go ahead and do that to give you enough clearance to get your air spring in. now today we'll be installing the passenger side. The drivers side installs the exact same way with a few minor additions. On the drivers side you'll want to make sure that you keep the wiring harness out of the way of the air spring and the hardware. Also the kit comes with an emergency brake cable clamp that you'll bolt into place to hold the emergency brake out of the spring.

Now here on the passenger side to begin our installation we'll need to remove the bump stop., we'll undo the nut here on the top and bring the bump stop out. We'll also need to remove the spacer here in the mounting hole. With our bump stop out of the way we're now ready to install the top bracket. Now with this truck we'll be using the 1/2 inch by 13 by 2 inch hex head cab screw. The 3 half inch think flat washers and the nylon lock nut as well as the bracket.

We'll begin by placing a think washer on the bolt. We'll then bring the bolt from the outside of the frame toward the inside of the frame where we'll put on another thick washer. We can then put our bracket up with the bolt running through the large square hole where we'll install the third flat washer. We can then loosely put on our lock nut. With that out of the way our bracket is loosely fitted to the vehicle.

We'll now move on to assembling our air springs and brackets. Here on the table we'll start by assembling the top of the spring and bracket. You'll notice that the bracket have four holes in the depending on which side of the truck were working on will determine which holes we use. For the passenger side here we'll be using these two holes. When working with the drivers side you'll be using these two.

This allows the spring to be offset and keep it out of the way of any of the other moving suspension components. Well also need to install the 90 degree swivel elbow fitting. Now that we have our bracket in the correct location and our elbow fitting installed we'll need to put in a couple of carriage bolts as after we bolt the bracket down we will not be able to gain access to these holes. Now we'll need one of the two 3/8ths by 16 by 2 1/2 carriage bolts and one of the 3/8ths by 16 by 1 1/4 carriage bolts. We'll put the long carriage bolt in here at the fold at the top bracket and the short carriage bolt in this square hole here. We'll need to put in a couple of carriage bolts. We can now tighten down the top bracket to the air spring. With our top plate on we'll go ahead and flip the assembly over and install our lower plate. Now again you'll notice that the lower plate has four holes. Depending which side of the vehicle we're working with will indicate which holes we'll use. Now we'll be using these two holes here for the passenger side and the other two are used for drivers side. Now before installing the lower bracket we'll again put the roll plate on, lining up the holes. We can then place the lower bracket over the top using the two holes indicated for the passenger side and install our hardware. We can then tighten it down which will secure the lower bracket to the air spring. Now we have a complete assembly. You'll notice included with the kit there are four spacers. We know on this truck we will need the large spaces. This spacer will keep the air spring level when it's tightened up. We'll now slide the spring assembly in and using the 1.2 inch flat washers and the nylon locking nuts we'll secure it tot he upper bracket. Now with the two fasteners installed here at the top plate we'll use the flat washer and the nylon lock nut to secure it on the third location here at the bracket. Now with all our hardware loosely installed we can go head and tighten it down securing the top plate of our air spring to the truck. We're now ready to attach the lower bracket of our air spring. Now because we're installing this kit on a single rear wheel vehicle we're going to use positron two to insert the long 3/8th by 16 by 10 inch carriage bolt. We use the L bracket to slide it through the position two of the lower plate. We'll do this on both sides of the bracket. We'll then take the lower tube bracket and slide it over the 10 inch long carriage bolts and use a flat washer and lock nut to tighten it into place. Now because our vehicle has s suspension lift it makes it a little more difficult to get that lower bracket secured. You may need an extra set of hands to help you hold it while you secure the fasteners. With those lower brackets secured up here back at the L bracket we'll use a short carriage bolt, the flat washer, and the nylon lock nut in the remaining position one. We'll use the 5 1/2 inch long hex cap screw to run through the L bracket hole closest to the lease spring of the truck where we'll put the spring clamp bar on the other side and using the flat washers and the nylon locking nuts secure it to the spring perch here. Now that all our hardware is loosely secured we can go ahead and tighten it all down making sure the springs sits level with the truck. With both air springs installed on the truck we're now ready to run the air tube lines to the air springs. We'll find a suitable location like the one we find here in the rear bumper by the license plate. We'll go ahead and run the airline through the bumper. We'll go ahead and install the rubber washer and the hex nut on the other side. We'll then install our valve cap. We can then route the line through the truck to the air spring making sure to stay out of the way of any moving components such as the suspension or hot components such as the exhaust. Once we've routed the airline we can go ahead and cut off the access using a tubing cutter and install it into the air spring 90 degree elbow. This is just a push to fit and with it locked into place we're now ready to inflate the air bag. That will complete our installation for part number AL57390 from Air Lift the Load Lifter 5000 air helper springs on our 2004 Ford F250.

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

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 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

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

Review from a similar Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 in Vehicle Suspension


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.

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.

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

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

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

  • Air Suspension System Compatible with B&W Gooseneck System on 2004 Ford Super Duty Truck
  • On your 2004 Ford F-Series Super Duty, the B&W Turnoverball Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch w/ Custom Installation Kit # BWGNRK1108 is a confirmed fit. There are many options for the Air Lift 5,000 system but only a few will work with that hitch. I recommend the Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Air Helper Springs - Rear Axle # AL57393 for 2WD models or # AL57390 for 4WD models. These will work without modifications. If you want to add the compressor system to adjust your psi at any time,...

  • 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...

For an air spring option, I recommend the Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Air Helper Springs - Rear Axle # AL57390 along with the Air Lift Lock-N-Lift Spacers for Lifted Vehicles - 4" Lift # AL52440.

The springs feature a load-leveling capacity of up to 5,000 pounds so they are up to the task for your wrecker application.

  • 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 Suspension Kit Recommendation for a 2002 Ford F-250 with B and W Turnover Ball Gooseneck Hitch
  • Personally I like the Firestone kits like the part # F2550 that has been confirmed to fit your 2002 Ford F-250 with a fifth wheel hitch installed in it. The bump stops of the Air Lift kits are redundant in that they don't really do anything beyond what a standard air bag already does. For a compressor kit to make inflating and maintaining pressure in the bags easy I would recommend the part # F2158.

This system will not interfere with the B and W Gooseneck hitch you said you have installed in the bed of your truck.
