Video Transcript for Review of Air Lift Vehicle Suspension - Rear Axle Suspension Enhancement - AL57541

Ellen: Hey everyone, I'm Ellen here at etrailer.com and today we're taking a look at the Air Lift LoadLifter 7500 XL air helper springs. These are going to be for the rear axle for your current GMC Sierra and Chevrolet Silverado trucks. That's going to be for the 2500 and the 3500 two-wheel drive and four-wheel drive. It's going to fit those vehicles, of course, the easiest way to check is going to be to look at our fit guide here at etrailer.com to double-check with that. But basically, why would you want to have air springs Well, if you're towing anything with your GMC or your Chevy, you've probably already experienced some of the common issues. Whenever you're putting a lot of weight on that back end, either in the truck bed itself or on a ball Mount, or even with a fifth-wheel trailer.

Now you're causing a lot of changes to how your truck connects with the road.That backend is going to squat down. It's going to put some extra strain on that rear suspension, all those OEM parts. And then also it's going to lift the front end up. So now you don't have that same sort of steering geometry, because we're lifting weight off the front end and it causes your tires to kind of move out and they're not connecting the same way. You don't have quite the same control with your steering, don't have the same connection with your brakes and it also points your headlights up at an angle.

They're not pointing down the road where you need to see what's going on. It makes life towing down the road a little bit more dangerous, a little more uncomfortable. And also you have a rougher ride, since a lot of times that suspension can start bottoming out in the back.By having an addition of airbags, we'll able to level out our system, alleviate all those issues. Bring us back down to our factory ride, height and cushion that suspension a little bit more. It's going to be spreading that weight out over another component, it's going to increase the life of our OEM parts.

If you kind of think of it, a good analogy for understanding how this is going to help without actually increasing your payload for your vehicles. Since you're not going to be able to carry any more weight, it's just going to help you to carry it better. If you think of it like in weightlifting, it's not going to help you lift more, it's just going to help you do more reps. So you can lift that weight more effectively, more efficiently without causing any strain or injury to your vehicle. That's kind of the best analogy I've figured out of how to illustrate that.The kit's going to come with everything you see laid out here, we'll have our bags and the brackets.

This is more or less how they're going to be. The top brackets do have little R and L to indicate left and right, so this would be your driver's side, this would be your passenger side. You'll have your quarter inch elbow fitting coming out towards the center. We'll have our lengths of quarter-inch air tubes, the Schrader valves already on their, heat shield and some clamp brackets to your hose brackets to go around your exhaust. They come with small and large, if you have a larger exhaust on there, it'll still should fit around that. And then some heat resistant sleeve to go on your airline and then all the other necessary hardware. Pretty straightforward to get that installed, you want to be sure to do a leak test before you actually hit the road with these.Basically you just take some soapy water spread at any point where the air is going to be going into there, so the fitting, here at the bag, at the push to connect fitting, and then at the trader valves in the back and any t's along the way, you can also utilize this with a compressor. A lot of people are scared of getting a compressor or they don't want to invest in a compressor because it is a lot of money. And I understand that, if you're going to be towing all the time, if this is going to be something that you're constantly using, a compressor is probably a good investment for you. If this is something that you are going to have more for every once in a while, you're going to be towing a lot, a compressor might not really be necessary for you.It kind of depends on what you're going to be doing with your airbags. If you're going to be towing every day, weekly compressor is probably something that's good to get, especially if you're going to be unloading and reloading things and need to adjust that height. As far as how these compared to other airbags out there, Air Lift does a good job, I would say that I personally prefer the Firestone bags, just because of that roll crimp that they have on their bags, it holds really well. It's just a good design. These bags don't have that, they're still going to perform, but that's just one thing I would say. This is definitely going to be an improvement over a more static system, especially again, if you want to have that independent adjustment or adjustment between when you're loaded and unloaded as they are now, you'll have adjustment from side to side, as well as being able to lift that front to back.If you decide to get a compressor, you can get one that's a dual pass, and that would still maintain that independent side aside. A single pass would merge those two together and then you'd just be lifting and lowering each side at the same rate. The only reason to really get a dual pass is if you have an in bed camper or you're going to be carrying off-centered loads. As far as the actual load leveling capacity that we're going to get out of these, we can get up to 7500 pounds, hence the name. Again, that's not going to increase your overall payload, it's just going to help you to carry that amount of weight.It's going to take that weight off of your suspension components. So never exceed the manufacturer's recommended towing weight for your vehicle or any other component in your system. They do have a lifetime warranty, 60 day satisfaction guarantee from Air Lift and they are made in the USA. And they're also compatible with most of your fifth-wheel and gooseneck hitches. We hope this video has been helpful in deciding if this is going to be the right kit for you again, I'm Ellen here at etrailer.com. Thanks for watching.

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

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.

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

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

Great system, we needed an extended cab for our business but can only find them in 3/4 ton with this kit it can keep up with a F-550. Love how heavy duty they are and the internal bounce stop. Best on the market in my opinion, just ordered another set for another vehicle 916357

Product works as it stated. Better yet the customer service from etrailer.com was the best experience for me. Teresa confirmed the product was on the shelf and shipped it asap. I make this comment because I purchased the product from 2 other sources that drop ship from Airlift the mfg and the service was horrible and I was very unhappy with Airlift. I will mention that 1of the 2 purchases was from Amazon and they shipped me product that was not complete. Nevertheless....I have to say "Thank you" to Teresa. I will be using you for my source for my 22GN trailer parts in the future. 900354

Review from a similar LoadLifter 7500XL in Vehicle Suspension


Received my order quickly, easy to install. Against my better judgment, I originally ordered the Air lift Loadlifter 7500XL from a competitor online that appeared to have a lower price. Well I learned the hard way, I paid for 2 day shipping, after placing my order with the other company and they took my money, my delivery date was now 4-5 days. I called an was on hold for over an hour, I asked about my 2 day delivery and they said “that was after they were pulled out of the warehouse and that could be 2 days alone” I asked if I canceled the expedited shipping, when could I expect them? I was told 4-6 weeks! What in the wide wide world of sports is going on here!??? I canceled the order, call etrailer and my call was answered within 60 seconds, I placed my order and since the shipping was free, it actually cost less than the competitor, and they arrived in 3 days. Don’t waste your time with others, etrailer is the best! 892719

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

  • Difference Between Firestone 7500 and Air Lift 7500 for 2020 GMC Sierra 3500
    The air spring kit I recommend for your 2020 GMC Sierra 3500 is the Firestone Ride-Rite Red Label # F2709. Firestone air bags are less likely to leak and overall more reliable thanks to their rolled crimp seal that keeps the bags securely anchored to the metal end plates. This is superior to the standard band style clamp designed used on the Air Lift bags, like the LoadLifter 7500 XL Air Helper Springs # AL57541. Another advantage of the Firestone kit is that it gives you the option...

  • B&W Gooseneck for 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 2500
    I reached out to my contact over at B&W and got some answers for you. They confirmed that the king pin will sit behind the rear axle just based on how Chevy set up the system in the bed. When using the fixed model part # BWRVK3710 it will be 1.5"-3" behind depending on how you set the pivot arms and on the slider model part # BWRVK3775 it will sit 2"-4" behind it again depending on how you set the pivot arms. This will not have a huge effect on the handling, braking or stability...

  • Comparing the Air Lift 7500 Airbags vs Firestone 7500 Airbags for a 2020 GMC Sierra 3500
    For your 2020 GMC Sierra 3500 4x4, I recommend using the Firestone Ride-Rite Red Label Extreme Duty Air Helper Springs part # F2710 over the Air Lift LoadLifter 7500 XL Air Helper Springs part # AL57541. The main reason is in regards to the construction of the airbags. The Firestone airbags use a crimp rolled design which is much more durable than the band clamp used with the Air Lift counter part.
