Video Transcript for Air Lift LoadLifter 7500 XL Air Helper Springs Review

Speaker 1: Today we'll be having a look at the Airlift LoadLifter 7500 XL Series of Air Helper Springs. We have several different options available on our website. Please check out etrailer.com for a particular fit for your application.Now, here's what our airbags look like installed. These airbags are a great solution for those of you who are towing a heavy trailer, such as a gooseneck or a fifth wheel, or even a standard trailer with a high tongue weight or are carrying a large amount of weight in the bed of your truck.This will allow you to maintain your factory ride height and have your braking and steering ability be the same as if you didn't have a heavy load in the bed of your truck. This will allow your front brakes to work better and maintain your steering and handling abilities. That way you don't have to worry about having poor control of your truck because you don't have the proper amount of weight over the front axle.These airbags will help support up to 7,500 pounds of weight.

They're not going to increase your gross vehicle weight rating by 7,500 pounds of weight. These airbags can be inflated anywhere between 5 and 100 PSI of air pressure to meet your needs appropriately for the amount of weight that you're towing or carrying in the truck.Now, when compared to other airbag solutions on the market, such as the Air Lift 5000 Air Helper Springs, these have an additional 2,500 pounds of load-leveling support and our airbags themselves are 7" in diameter compared to those that are 6" in diameter. Now, because these are an inch in diameter bigger than the 5000 Air Lift Springs, these gives us more volume, which will allow us to support more weight.Now, we'll take our airbags out on our test course. On the left side of the screen, you'll notice the vehicle without the airbags installed, and on the right side of the screen, you'll notice the vehicle with the airbags installed.In the first part of our test course, we'll be doing some evasive maneuvering doing some quick turns, side to side. You'll notice how unstable and how unsettled the suspension is without the airbags installed, and with them installed, you'll notice how much more settled and more control that we have over the vehicle.

There is a significant amount less body roll than what we had without them.On the next part of our test course, we'll be going over some bumps, and you'll notice without the airbags installed how much suspension travel we don't have. The suspension can't do its job properly because it's sagging down and doesn't have the amount of travel that it needs in order to help absorb the bumps.With the airbags installed, you can see how much less jouncing and jarring there is going on. It's because the suspension is able to do its job properly with having the weight being supported by the airbags. This will give us much more handling and braking ability with the airbags installed, giving us the safety net we need when we're towing a heavy load or have a lot of weight in the back of our vehicle. That completes our look at the Air Lift LoadLifter 7500 XL Series of Air Helper Springs..

Review from a similar Air Lift LoadLifter 7500XL in Vehicle Suspension


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

Installed on 2018 Ram 3500 SRW 4x4 short bed. I haul a slide in camper, wet weight of camper is around 3000lbs. These air bags helped quite a bit to level the pickup and prevent side to side sway and roll. The install is pretty easy. Prereading of directions is recommended. etrailer is great to work with. 671841

Contacted etrailer and on their recommendation for my service truck, I went with the Loadlifter 7500 XL Air Helper Springs for my 2015 F250 4x4 due to rear riding low. Excellent choice, easy installation and after a year still working perfect. Thanks for the help and would definitely use them again. 521756

We purchased an AirLift bag system for our 2015 Ford SD F-250 to assist in towing a 2016 Montana 3160RL Legacy 5th wheel trailer. The bags are amazing!! Along with a gauge and air compressor system, we have smoothed out our ride while towing our 5th wheel. Very happy with the purchase and investment in this system. 674824

Do you have a question about this Vehicle Suspension?


  • Comparing the Air Lift 7500 Airbags vs Firestone 7500 Airbags for a 2015 GMC Sierra 3500
  • For your 2015 GMC Sierra 3500 Denali DRW 4x4, I recommend using the Firestone Ride-Rite Red Label Extreme Duty Air Helper Springs part # F2702 over the Air Lift LoadLifter 7500 XL Air Helper Springs part # AL57538 for two reasons. The first reason is that the Air Lift kit requires drilling into the frame (minimal) whereas the Firestone kit is completely drill free. The second reason is in regards to the construction of the airbags. The Firestone airbags use a crimp rolled design which is...

  • Recommended Air Springs for GMC 2500HD Denali with B&W Companion System
  • The Air Lift LoadLifter 7500 XL Air Helper Springs - Rear Axle # AL57538 will give you a load leveling capacity of up to 7,500 lbs. This does not increase your load carrying capacity, but will level your truck and also give you some much needed shock absorption when towing. This system is a confirmed fit for your truck and will allow you to use your B&W system without any interference. This system comes with manual inflation valves that can be mounted wherever is convenient for you....

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • AirLift Air Spring Installation in 2019 Chevy 3500HD with Factory 5th Wheel Prep
  • Air Lift LoadLifter 7500 XL Air Helper Spring kit # AL57538 will fit both the 2WD and 4WD versions of the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 3500HD with factory 5th wheel/gooseneck prep but you will need to drill to install it. The kit brackets will install to the bottom of the frame as shown in the linked photo. To get the most out of this setup I recommend adding a compressor # AL25856 to allow pressure adjustment on the fly which is much more convenient than having to pull over to air up the...

  • Can Truck With Air Lift Suspension Enhancement be Put Up on Lift with Axle Suspended
  • If your truck was on a lift and the rear axle was left hanging without being supported the Air Lift LoadLifter part # AL57538 would not bear any of the weight of the rear axle. Basically it would all be on the rear suspension just like if the kit wasn't installed. I attached a review video for this kit for you to check out as well.

  • Recommended Suspension Enhancement for 2017 GMC Sierra 3500 with 5,200 lb Truck Camper
  • The Torklift StableLoad Suspension Upgrade # TLA7202 is a great option for improving the handling and reducing side-to-side sway on your 2017 GMC Sierra 3500 Denali when your truck camper is attached. These will simply bolt onto each frame-mounted overload bump stop bracket on your vehicle. Drilling will not be required during installation. It's likely that with the heavy weight of the truck camper that you will need an additional enhancement to level your truck and lift it a bit off...

  • How to Use Air Lift LoadLifter Air Bags on a 2015 GMC Sierra 2500 with 6 Inch Lift
  • Yes, the Air Lift LoadLifter 7500 XL Air Helper Springs part # AL57538 will work on your 2015 GMC Sierra 2500. However, you don't need to use the 7500 XL system nor would I advise it. Instead, I recommend the Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Air Helper Springs part # AL57338. The 7,500 lb and 5,000 lb weight capacity you see is for pin/tongue weight, not gross trailer weight as the the pin/tongue weight is the only part that is directly over the top of the airbags. They will however both do an...

  • 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...

  • Best Airbags for a 2018 Chevrolet Silverado 3500 With Factory Prep Package
  • For your 2018 Chevrolet Silverado 3500, I recommend the Air Lift LoadLifter 7500 XL Air Helper Springs part # AL57538 over the Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs part # F2596. The LoadLifter airbags will do an excellent job of helping to support your truck bed camper or gooseneck trailer. They have a 7,500 lb weight capacity which I would choose over the 5,000 lb system because you are going to be using an in-bed camper which will add more weight over the rear axle than with a 5th wheel...

They are a confirmed fit for your truck and according to the installation details you will not use the U-bolts for mounting. I've attached the instructions which have photos to assist.

  • Recommendation For Best Air Lift LoadLifter For 2018 GMC Sierra 2500
  • Both the Air Lift LoadLifter 5000, Item # AL57338, and 7500 XL, Item # AL57538, fit your 2018 GMC Sierra 2500. When you are running unloaded you will have a stiffer ride. If you adjust your air pressure then you can smooth out the ride when empty. The LoadLifter 5000 is designed to help provide support progressively as you load more up to 5,000-lbs. It is also for occasional towing and hauling. The LoadLifter 7500 XL works much like the LoadLifter 5000 but handles a 7,500-lb capacity....

This kit is rated for up to 5,000 pounds which is more than enough for the pin weight of your 13.5K 5th wheel trailer. This kit also features internal jounce bumpers for help improve ride quality, especially when towing. I have included a link to a video showing an example installation for you.

Depending on your application you may want the 7500 XL because it's designed for the HD and has the higher 7,500 pound capacity. I've linked install videos of both kits for you to take a look at.

  • Firestone 7500 Air Bags vs. Air Lift 7500 Air Bags for 2019 GMC Sierra 3500 2WD
  • The 7,500 lb air bag kit I highly recommend for your 2019 GMC Sierra 3500 two-wheel drive are the Firestone Ride-Rite Red Label Extreme Duty Air Helper Springs # F2702 because of the superior construction of the bags compared to the Air Lift LoadLifter 7500 XL Air Helper Springs # AL57538. The reason the Firestone air bags are higher in quality than the Air Lift is because the Firestone bags are constructed with four layers of rubber which is reinforced, while the Air Lift bags are a...
