2012 Ford F-250 Super Duty

Shipping was fast. Install was easy (once I removed the spare tire). Just follow the guide step by step. I haul 8000-10000 pounds in a 14 foot dump quite often. My truck would squat 6-7 inches. NOT ANYMORE. With about 65 psi I have a level ride. Much better handling. Great product. I should have bought years ago.

I love having them on the truck. I wish I wasn’t so cheap and bought the onboard compressor. But the valves work. Smoothed out the ride when unladen and levels the truck when heavy giving much more stability and control.


Awesome service! Great answers to my questions and product knowledge was unbelievable. Recommend them again and again!

Ford F-250 Super Duty

Installed on F-250 crew cab long bed.

great. Rides like a new truck. Completely eliminates squat when towing. I run them @35 empty for a smooth ride.

2014 Ford F-450 Super Duty

All ways awsome, as advertised! Have been buying from etrailer for years and will continue to do so! Highly recommend!


It’s a great product


I purchased the air suspension system for my 2012, F250, 4x4. We have a 5-wheel camper and I also have a gooseneck trailer that I pull. My thought and hope when I purchased this system was that it would assist with carrying the load, keep the truck from squatting when loaded, and possibly help with the stiffness of the trucks suspension. It was a win in all areas! I run about 40 psi in them at all times and you cannot believe how much better the truck rides. Institution was not bad. The directions were pretty straight forward and easy to follow. My issue came about, because I was trying to install a B&W gooseneck hitch at the same time. Bouncing back and forth between instruments added a bit of confusion, but I managed to overcome it. I have my own 2-post lift and I must say, I would not have wanted to installed this without that luxury. Rolling around on the ground doing this would have been difficult. I did have one issue that frustrated me somewhat. After having everything in place and ready for use, I had an air leak. I was not happy. With the assistance of a spray bottle of water, I was able to locate it. On the top of each airbag there is a 90 degree air fitting that was pre-installed. I looked at it during assembly and thought that maybe I should remove it and put Teflon tape on it to ensure it doesn’t leak. Well……, like a dumb—s, I didn’t. And guess what. There was my leak! I had to take the whole thing back out from under the truck to fix it. I had to do both sides. Lesson learned. Beyond that, it was a great purchase, a great product, and if I ever trade trucks, it will be the first thing I put on my new one.

I have reached out to the manufacturer and they informed me that they have a thread sealant applied on most all of the fittings now, but that was not always the case.


The 7500 XL is a very high quality kit. It arrived two days after I placed the order. Etrailer is a great business to work with


It looks like to me that you guys sent me some used parts. The paint is all scratched and chipped. That won't affect the fit but when you pay for new stuff that is what you expect. The hardware bags are sealed so hopefully that is all there.

2010 Ford F-450 Super Duty

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!!


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.

2015 Ford F-250 Super Duty

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.


Delivered quickly


Great job but had to modify the air bags for a 6in lift. The rough county lift kit takes away the block the airlift bolts too so we cut the block it came with and put it on the axle. Turn out good. Put 1,400 mile on them so far with no problem.


These air bags are of excellent quality and the customer service at etrailer is hands down # 1!!!
I highly recommend this brand for heavy hauling.

Honda Prelude

My F250 rides as if I am on a cloud. I love the product! Note,Do yourself a favor and prelude all bolts and nuts under your frame before you start.


Teresa was wonderful taking my order. Very fast shipping. The air lift system was perfect

I have owned this for one year and it has worked flawlessly.



one year out and still working great. This pickup is constantly loaded with something.


service was excellent!


They worked just as I had hoped. They were easy to install in just a few hours. Definitely worth the money.


Service was as great as usual. Thanks E trailer!

2011 Ford F-250 Super Duty



Very simple and easy install. Probably the best addition to the truck to date. Travel with a truck camper and pulled a trailer from Georgia to Colorado with not any indication of weight or towing anything. Great bags!!!


Great product!! Takes some time to install be patient.

  • Can Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 of 2016 Ford F-350 be Upgraded to 7500XL
    I compared the hardware lists of the Air Lift 5000 and 7500 kits that fit your 2016 Ford F-350 and found that they do not use the same hardware or bags so you'd need a complete new kit to go with the higher rated setup. For that you'd want the # AL57596.

  • Does Air Lift LoadLifter 7500 XL for 2014 Ford F-250 Require Muffler Bracket Replacement
    The Air Lift LoadLifter 7500 XL part # AL57596 is a confirmed fit for your 2014 Ford F-250 short bed and does not require any additional brackets due to the exhaust design. I attached an install video for this kit on a similar 2014 Ford F-250 for you to check out as well.

  • Air Lift Suspension Enhancement Recommendation for 2012 Ford F-350
    For your 2012 Ford F-250 the Air Lift Kit part # AL57596 would be the correct kit to use as it is a heavier duty air bag kit which you would need. That being said, weighing the rear axle of your truck with the trailer connected and then comparing that to the capacity of the spring kit would not necessarily be the way to pick it out. What these kits do is provide the additional suspension support up to the capacity of the spring kit. They do not however give you additional suspension capacity...

  • Is Rough Ride Common with Air Lift Air Bag Kit with 5 PSI in Ford F-450
    I wish there was an easy solution I can recommend but Air Lift will void your warranty if you run lower than 5 psi in the bags and the compressor kit won't let you do that anyway. 5 psi SHOULDN'T make it unbearably stiff so I'd hate to have you modify your setup to the point of voiding the warranty and not have it actually help. If the kit is brand new the rubber may be pretty stiff (since it is a heavy duty kit), break in and get a bit more flexible over time. Your truck though isn't...

  • Does Air Lift Suspension Kit for 2015 Ford F-250 Need Exhaust Sensor Relocation Bracket
    The Air Lift kits for your 2015 Ford F-250 diesel, like part # AL57596, does not need the location bracket like the Firestone kits do. The installation instructions of the Air Lift kit state: If necessary, disconnect the wiring harness from the driver’s (left) side frame rail to gain clearance for the upper brace (Fig. D.4). Also, push out the harness connector that holds the electrical lines going to the gas/DEF tank in or out of the tank bracket. This will improve socket/bolt access...

  • Air Lift Air Bag Kit for 2011 Ford F-450 with B and W Turnoverball Gooseneck Hitch
    Yes, the Air Lift air bag kit part # AL57596 is a confirmed fit for your 2011 Ford F-450 and is perfectly compatible with your B and W Turnoverball gooseneck hitch setup. For a compressor kit then the heavy duty part # AL25854 will work great to make inflating the bags and maintaining them easier. The compressor will inflate faster than standard compressors and the gauge inside the vehicle will allow you to monitor and inflate them from inside the vehicle.

  • Can You Replace 5000 with 7500 Air Lift Air Bags On 2015 Ford F-350
    In regards to the Air Lift LoadLifter Air Helper Springs, the XL or 7500 kits use larger air bags as well as thicker brackets in order to obtain higher capacities. Therefore, you wouldn't be able to simply switch out the air bags on the part # AL57396 to obtain the capacity of the part # AL57596 on a 2015 Ford F-350. If you want to make the switch to the 7500 XL kit, you'll be rewarded with 2,500 lbs of additional capacity. I have attached an install video I did on that exact kit as well.

  • Do the Air Lift LoadLifter 7500XL Air Springs # AL57596 Fit a 2015 Ford F-450?
    There are a lot of great options for air springs for your 2015 For F-450, but the Air Lift LoadLifter 7500 XL # AL57596 you were looking at will not fit your vehicle. If you are looking for a Air Lift brand kit, you can use the Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Ultimate Air Helper Springs # AL88349, but these have a weight capacity of only 5,000 lbs. If you need the extra weight capacity, you can use the Timbren Suspension Enhancement System # TFRSDJ, which have a 12,000 lb weight capacity. Check...

  • Recommended Air Springs For 2015 Ford F-250 4WD Crew Cab With Service Body
    For your 2015 F-250 Super Duty (including the 4WD, gas engine, crew cab, and service body), I recommend an air system for load leveling so your truck doesn't squat in the back like you are referring to. For air springs compatible with your truck, I recommend the Air Lift LoadLifter 7500 XL Air Helper Springs - Rear Axle # AL57596. These springs are one inch wider at 7 inches than the Load Lifter 5000 # AL57396. This system will improve your steering and braking performance by keeping...

These air springs will work just fine with your Turnoverball, has up to 5,000 lbs of load leveling support so you'll have plenty of capacity while you're towing or hauling, and has an adjustable air pressure range of 5 to 100 PSI. You're also going to need a compressor system in which I suggest going with the Air...

    Yes, the Air Lift LoadLifter 7500 XL Air Helper Springs part # AL57596 are a good fit for your 2014 Ford F-450 and are actually the air bags I recommend for you. The reason for this is because they offer the highest capacity available for your truck, 7,500 lbs and they are compatible with most in-bed 5th wheel and gooseneck trailer hitches. This kit in particular is also drill-free which means you don't have to drill any holes into your truck's frame. If you are going to be hauling frequently...

  • Should I Get Loadlifter 5000 Or 7500 For Towing A 15K Fifth Wheel
    Since the pin weight of your camper is 2.1k, I recommend going with the LoadLifter 5000 opposed to the 7500. While technically there is not reason you couldn't use the 7500 kit, it really is not necessary for a camper like yours. Generally the 7500 kits are used on vehicles that have a constant heavy load in the bed like a salt spreader or truck bed camper. For your 2012 Ford F-350 I recommend the Air lift Loadlifter 5000 Ultimate # AL88396. I prefer the ultimate kit because the air...

  • Could RoadActive Suspension Kit be Installed with Air Lift Air Bag Kit
    It would be a bit redundant and in reality would give you a pretty harsh ride if both systems were engaged but it is possible to install RoadActive Suspension kit part # RAS3611-SLHD at the same time as an Air Lift kit part # AL57596. If you found yourself in a situation where you needed both you are probably way over the towing capacity of the vehicle anyway.

  • Timbren Suspension Kit For 2016 Ford F-250 Towing 5th Wheel with Sag in Suspension
    The Timbren kit part # TFR250SDG is a confirmed fit for your 2016 Ford F-250 and would do a great job getting rid of the sag you mentioned when towing your 5th wheel trailer. The big advantage this has over air bags is that the install is easier and you never have to worry about air leaks or maintaining/checking air pressure. It's very much a "set it and forget it" type solution which is why we recommend it over the air bags.

You need spacers to make up the room from the 4 inch lift in your suspension. Just because you have a 4 inch lift does not always mean you need a 4 inch spacer.
