Installed on my ‘19 Sierra 2500 4x4 diesel. Installed professionally February ‘19. Vehicle came factory with 5th wheel hardware, but with a little work, they attached just fine. Used in conjunction with my OBA system these bags both improved the ride quality of the truck empty, as well as loaded and towing. I tow a 24’ travel trailer full time. These bags improve the ride dramatically, especially depending on the road surface I’m on. Absolutely problem free. No air leaks. No bag failures. Very satisfied in over 30k miles. 744948

I purchased the air lift 7500lb bags with the wireless remote. I am very familiar with wiring and fabrication. The install actually went fairly easy. However the remote was extremely inconsistent. Two of my friends had the same system on their vehicles and warned me about it. They actually removed and sold the set ups. I guess I was hoping the issues they had would have been resolved. To my disappointment they haven’t. That and I really don’t want a gauge/switch set up in my new truck. First the relay was bad. I called and the customer service was great they sent me a trouble shooting guide, I proved the issue and was sent a replacement. Finally I got the system working and it has been so inconsistent that I actually unplug the fuse in between uses. When the remote does actually work and communicate with the system it is constantly shutting on and off. Somehow in my life I’m able to build and trouble shoot complex elevators and yet I’ve been whipped by a simple product like this. I’m now stuck with the airbag system installed and will eventually get another hard wired system that’s more reliable. Shame on me for not listening to my friends advice. 776612

Box arrived on time and in good condition. I opened the box and removed all parts, nothing was missing or damaged. I am very impressed with the quality and how well parts are made. I did a pre assembly and everything seems to be okay. I will update after I install the airbags. 729792

Had to do some adaptation for my application. I still need to run down a leak that started about two months after use. 673875


Comments
If an air bag suspension is going to leak, it will typically do so at the point where the air lines into the fittings. Its crucial that when the air lines are cut to length, the cut needs to be perfectly perpendicular or it will leak. Brushing a solution of dish washing liquid and water on the fittings and then looking for the bubbles is the easiest way to locate the leak.

2018 Dodge Ram 3500 dually 4 wheel drive with 6.7 Cummins. My Fifth Wheel tongue weight was around 4500 pounds. It would make my headlights at night blind people on road. And my steering wasn’t that great! After installing these Air Bags my lights and steering are so much better. Installing these air bags I did it myself on ground. No jacks truck on level ground. I put together everything. Then went under truck on my back. Mounted the top mount. Then I took strap and smash the air bag down to fit. After in place I took strap off. And bolted it all up. Took me 30 min. Per side. Very easy to install. Just basic hand tools needed. I buy a lot of stuff from etrailer they have the finest stuff at excellent prices. They have my business for life! 692501

Review from a similar LoadLifter 7500XL in Vehicle Suspension


Hello George, I purchased the Air Lift Load Lifter 7500 XL Air Helper Spring kit for my F450 Ford Dually. I pull a heavy 5th Wheel Trailer and wanted something to raise the rear if the truck when the 5th Wheel was attached. I run with about 4,200 lbs, pin weight and these air lift bags did a great job at leveling things out once hooked up. The kit was very complete, good instructiona and fairly easy to install, (I used a four post lift to install this kit, but it could be installed at home if necessary). I typically run about 60 lbs air pressure in the bags (when loaded), and get about 1 1/2" of lift with that pressure. When empty, I run 5 - 10 lbs. Great product!! John 871646

The install was a breeze about 4 hours, we have traveled several thousand miles with our 10 foot Lance camper loaded on back, while towing a side by side on a tandem axle trailer. The added support made the stability much better, we also installed the twin beam receiver about the same time. Happy trails good investment. 809184

I added this to level my truck when hauling heavy loads like my truck camper. It took longer than expected to install, but the documentation was comprehensive. Plan on an all day installation with two people if you have never installed one before. I haven't driven the truck with the camper installed yet, but confident if will meet my needs. 794267

Review from a similar LoadLifter 7500XL in Vehicle Suspension


I just finished the airlift 7500xl install on my 2020 Duramax dually and because of the 5th wheel prep doesn’t allow for the top U bolts to go into position. However if you remove the rear six bed bolts and loosen the front two about half an inch than lift the rear of the bed from the rear. I used a piece of cable and D-rings in the lower in bed tie downs and an engine hoist tow lift the bed about an inch in the rear being careful not to let the bed hit the cab- This allowed for the bolts to slide under the bed supports and into place Hope this helps someone. 793364

Ask the Experts about this Air Lift Vehicle Suspension

  • Why Is Drilling Required for the Air Lift 7500 Airbags On a 2018 GMC Sierra 3500 With 5th Wheel
    There are two ways to install the Air Lift LoadLifter 7500 XL Air Helper Springs part # AL57538 on your 2018 GMC Sierra 3500, using the included u-bolts or drilling the brackets directly to the underside of the frame. The u-bolts would be used for when there are no in-bed hitch brackets that attach to the side of the frame but if you do have these then the u-bolts won't work because of where the in-bed hitch brackets mount therefore you will have to drill into the underside of the frame...

  • Air Lift Suspension Enhancement that Fits 2014 Chevy Silverado with Knapheide Dump
    We have an Air Lift suspension kit that fits your 2014 Chevy Silverado 3500 with the part # AL88339 since your truck was built on a cab and chassis truck due to it having a dump bed. The kit you mentioned would not fit though. For a compressor kit then the heavy duty part # AL25854 will make inflating the bags and maintaining them very easy. The compressor will inflate faster than standard compressors and the gauge inside the vehicle will allow you to monitor and inflate them from inside...

  • Suspension Enhancement for 2018 Chevy Silverado 3500 Cab and Chassis
    I checked with Air Lift and unfortunately the LoadLifter 7500 XL Air Helper Springs # AL57538 you referenced will not fit your 2018 Chevy Silverado 3500 Cab and Chassis and there's not a way to make them compatible. There aren't any air springs available that will fit the cab and chassis model of your truck. Your best option for adding rear suspension enhancement is with jounce-style springs. I highly recommend the Timbren Rear Suspension # TGMRCK25D that uses Aeon hollow rubber springs...

  • Spacers for Air Springs in 2019 Silverado 3500 with 6-Inch Lift
    Air Lift LoadLifter 7500 XL Air Helper Springs # AL57538 can be installed in your 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 3500 even if it has a suspension lift. If the truck actually has a 6-inch lift you're going to need spacer kit # F2374. The upper and lower air bag brackets once installed should be between 8-1/2 and 9-1/2-inches apart. Trucks with a body lift do not need spacers.

  • Are The 7,500 Lb Air Bags Recommended for a 2015 Chevy Silverado 2500 with Constant Load
    If you find yourself constantly towing year-round then the Air Lift LoadLifter 7500 XL Air Helper Springs part # AL57538 is what I recommend for a 2015 Chevrolet Silverado 2500. I would also recommend these higher rated air bags for trailers with a heavier pin weight like yours. If you have the Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Ultimate Air Helper Springs you can use the Replacement Heat Shield part # AL34365.

    The Air Lift LoadLifter 7500 XL Air Helper Springs - Rear Axle part # AL57538 on your 2018 Chevy Silverado 3500 High Country was a nice choice! Air compressors systems are pretty much universal so you can use the Firestone Compressor system with the 7500 air bags with a problem. The Air Lift WirelessAIR Compressor System for Air Helper Springs part # AL72000 has 9% duty cycle which means the compressor will run for 5 minutes then needs 55 minutes of cool down which really won't be an issue...

The Firestone Red Label airbags will do an excellent job of helping to support your truck bed camper or gooseneck trailer.

Instead, I recommend the Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Air Helper Springs part # AL57338.
