Note: When servicing your truck with Air Lift air springs installed, if the truck is lifted by the frame, the air must be let out of the springs. And if the rear of the truck is lifted during service, then it must be supported by jack stands to avoid damage to the air springs.


Air Lift's LoadLifter 5000 was designed with an exact purpose: to provide full-time, first-class support to your 1/2-ton, 3/4-ton, 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 lbs of load-leveling capacity and distributes the weight of your payload to all 4 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, 2-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.

Installed as documented. Took a little longer on my truck as I have the rear stabilizer bar, but fit perfectly. I tow a 34 ft fifth wheel and running only 10 pounds of air was all needed to level rear. I used these air lifts on my previous pickup for the same reason and they worked great.

Review from a similar LoadLifter 5000 in Vehicle Suspension


Warm weather has allowed my son and me to do this installation. It went well and took us about 5 hours from start to finish including unpacking, reading the manual, installation, and putting up the tools. Then did the leak test and did the test drive. Hauled 500 pounds today and working great. Without any weight in the truck it still rides very smooth. Thanks to Erik B for his help and advice on line.


Comments
It has been great especially when I am pulling my travel trailer. I am pulling 5500 to 6000 pounds and this is where you will really notice the improvement! The air ride system with the automatic leveling has made travel with my travel trailer a much less stressful time and I am now a happy camper.

Review from a similar LoadLifter 5000 in Vehicle Suspension


Exactly what we needed, was originally going to install Air Lift 1000 HD helpers for coil springs. But, those items were on backorder at the factory and that was more of a make do solution. The Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 was in stock, Nicole at etrailer arranged the cancelation of the original order, and had the 5000s shipped. Installation as per the instructions was a breeze, had all the necessary tools until it came time to reinstalling the truck's coil springs. ATTENTION to all, once the LoadLifter 5000 air bags are installed, the axle on a RAM 1500 Classic doesn't drop as far, short by about 2 inches! Luckily, the local store loans tools, with the aid of a coil spring compressor, the coil springs were reinstalled in a few minutes. Since the trailer electrical connections are on the drivers side of the license plate, I located both schrader valves on the drivers side of the license plate. Note the position of the heat shield on the passenger side.

I have a 2020 F250 and when I hook up to my 14000 pound 5th wheel the pickup would sag a little. It pulled okay as-is but it really needed to be level for better stability, braking, and headlights. I purchased the Air Lift Loadlifter 5000 from etrailer and after they had installed it, what a difference it made. With just the install, it elevated the bed one additional inch with only 5 pounds of air in the bags. Once I hooked up, I put 25 pounds of air in the bags which was plenty to raise the bed to just beyond level. I am very satisfied with this addition and if you are experiencing sag, I highly recommend this product. For the minimal cost of the product, it was well worth the investment in safety, ride comfort , and stability.

Review from a similar LoadLifter 5000 in Vehicle Suspension


The install was easy. The instructions do not address the fact that you should not allow the axle to hang on the air bags when the vehicle is on a lift or jack stands. I included pictures of the chains I made to support the weight of the axle when on my lift. Also a pro tip is to smear a small amount of Teflon thread sealant on the tube to lubricate and help the tube to seal in the fitting, I included pictures of the sealant applied.

Review from a similar LoadLifter 5000 in Vehicle Suspension


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.


Comments
These things have been great! I tow a travel trailer thats about 8K loaded with roughly 1100 tongue weight. The bags level this load perfectly so headlights are right and everything is stable. I run 10 psi unloaded, 40psi with normal loads in the camper, and 70psi with the fresh water tank full which is forward in the trailer. I kept it simple with individual valves for each bag. Wouldnt change a thing. A bicycle pump is more than adequate for making changes in pressure bc the volume is so low that its easy. All good with this product.

I got your deal of the day, but unfortunately, your trailers are a bit lacking for my needs. I built a stage trailer. Here are the pics. By the way, I purchased all my trailer parts from etrailer for this project, tires, rims, axials, brakes, sway bar, airlift suspension, electrical, and so on. I couldn't have done this without your staff. Thanks

Review from a similar LoadLifter 5000 in Vehicle Suspension


I purchased the air bags and wireless compressor for my 2021 Ram 2500. I occasionally tow a fifth wheel camper that is pretty much max payload for the truck. I wanted the truck to ride level and did not want to sacrifice the unloaded ride. These airbags definitely make the truck ride better when unloaded and I have no doubt they will make a huge difference which the FW in tow. In a couple of weeks I will be towing the FW about 700 miles round trip and will know more then. I haven’t even hitched it up since the install. The way Ram put the springs inboard a few inches more than the typical leaf springs are, these airbags go to the outside of the coil springs. Adding the airbags, it just makes sense that it would add stability to a factory setup like the Ram. The body roll is much less noticeable when unloaded. The steering is also more responsive and seems tighter. So I expect the control of the trailer will be much better as well. E trailer was awesome. I initially ordered a single path compressor which would have suited my needs just fine however because Covid has so screwed up the supply chain, that unit was not in stock and was not expected for possibly a few months. I spoke with Matt who helped me upgrade to this unit for about $200 more. It is overkill but I didn’t have to wait. Matt told me that orders were typically several days In processing and that I would get my shipment in a couple of weeks. That was concerning due to my upcoming trip and wanting the airbags installed before the trip, but to my surprise, from order time to my front door was 4 days. I would recommend Etrailer to anyone. Also, it seems that no matter who answers the phone, they know what they are talking about. That is not common these days. I’m pretty sharp, so when I have a question I really don’t like getting dumb looks and i don’t knows.

Review from a similar LoadLifter 5000 in Vehicle Suspension


I purchased these for my 2018 Dodge 2500 that has jounce (coil) rear springs. I was concerned that the new 5th wheel (19,500 lb dry weight)I later purchased may be too heavy for the jounce springs and cause the vehicle to 'walk' on the road. I run 40 lbs of air in them which proves to be sufficient for my setup. The only issue I had was having to remove the wheels to get the bags between the axle and frame, which the instructions should have mentioned. No problems after one year of use.

They work well after fixing leak in line. 4 stars because I don't like the way they sit on the axle housing. I believe it would be much better if you rounded the points where they sit.i will be taking them off to do this myself for piece of mind.

Purchased the air bags just to provide a little help with ride while towing our travel trailer. Our travel trailer is 6900 GVW with a tongue weight around 650. Just by adding about 20-25 psi the bags did the trick and our 1/2 ton p/u rides much better when traveling over backroads. Did the installation myself and it was easy.

Review from a similar LoadLifter 5000 in Vehicle Suspension


I just bought a new 2019 Ford F250 to pull my new fifth wheel. The pin weight of the fifth wheel caused the bed of my truck to drop a few inches so I bought the Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Helper Springs and the Air Lift One wireless on board compressor to raise the bed back up to level. I installed all of it myself after watching the etrailer installation videos. I think somewhere they mention it being a 2-3 hour job. Well...if you do it every day, then it probably is. It took me the better part of a day to get it done. The first thing i did was remove the spare tire for easier access. I also tried to install the airbags without lifting the truck. Actually, I did install one side without lifting and it wasn't that hard. However, there is a nut on the bottom bracket that is between the airbag and the leaf spring that is impossible to tighten without lifting the truck body. Even after lifting the body, it was still very difficult to access/tighten. Instead of drilling a hole for the schrader valve, I used a couple of oversized washers and installed it in a hole on the hitch frame that was already there. The Air Lift One, I installed on the frame, on the drivers side of the vehicle and just forward of the gas tank. This is really about the only place on the frame without wiring of some sort. I got the EZ mount but didn't use the large U-bolt as I didn't find any place it would work. Instead, i just drilled a couple of starter holes in the frame and used the provided self-tapping screws. I also wired the hot and always-on wires together and directly to an upfitter wire under the hood. I had no trouble getting the wireless remote to communicate with the compressor and it works great. Now, with my fifth wheel attached to the truck, I can add air and level the truck back to factory heights. Overall, the install wasn't that hard and would have been super easy with a truck lift. The people at etrailer were great when made my order and will definitely give them a call again.

This comes in both 18K # DM8550024 and 21K # DM8550038 versions but I recommend going with the 21K because it allows you to tow a larger variety of 5th wheel trailers. Attached is an installation video of the 18K in a 2014...

  • Can You Install a SuperSprings Stabilizer and Sway Control Kit With an Air Lift Loadlifter 5000
    Though we do not carry the Hellwig product, from what I could find, the SuperSprings # SSA25 kit will install much the same way. As I wasn't 100% on that, I called over and spoke to one of the Techs at SuperSprings and they confirmed that it would have to be one system or the other, unfortunately. With the adjustability of the Air Lift Loadlifter 5000 # AL57391, I suggest staying with this system over the SuperSpings # SSA25 set it and forget it style system.

  • Do Air Lift Air Bags Require Spacers for a Lifted 2017 Ford F-250?
    If you have a lifted 2017 Ford F-250, you will need spacers with Air Lift airbags like the Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Ultimate Plus Air Springs w/ Internal Bumpers # AL89399 (4-wheel drive) or the Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Air Helper Springs - Rear Axle # AL57391 (2-wheel drive). I went ahead and attached a diagram of how you determine what spacers to use with your truck. You will need to measure the distance between the upper and lower brackets and subtract the height of the air spring...

  • Compatibility of Air Lift 5000 Springs on a 2018 Ford F-250 with Curt 5th Wheel Base Rail Kit
    If your 2018 Ford F-250 Super Duty is a 4WD then the Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Air Helper Springs # AL57399 that you have will be compatible with the Curt Custom 5th Wheel Installation Kit # C16428-204. However, if you have the 2WD version then you need the Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Air Helper Springs # AL57391 instead. I confirmed this with my contact from Air Lift. It doesn't really matter which one is installed first, but I would install the 5th wheel rail kit first since it sits...

  • Air Helper Spring Suspension Recommendation for 2017 Ford F250 2WD
    The primary purpose of the internal jounce bumpers of the Air Lift # AL88391 LoadLifter Ultimate Air helper springs is to provide a failsafe if the system develops a leak and you lose pressure while you're towing or hauling. This is pretty important, because the factory jounce bumpers are removed to install the air helper springs. If under a heavy load, and the system loses pressure it's possible that the suspension could bottom out which is harmful for the air bags as well as the vehicle. The...
