Sat in Sweden (Europe) and googled for Air Lift LoadLifter 7500 XL Air Helper Springs for my 2020 Ford F350 and found them on etrailer.com. Paid with Swedish credit card and sent them with UPS, 1 week later they were on my car in Sweden. Everything worked very smooth and quickly. Thanks etrailer.

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.

Review from a similar LoadLifter 7500XL in Vehicle Suspension


Got My Order right away, everything was intact, no damage. I had watched some install videos online which helped with the instructions. Had to make minor alterations, one was the cut out for the axle vent tube which was mentioned in the instructions, the other was to cut off the corner of the top mount to give clearance to the exhaust shown by the red arrow in photo. I'm sure not every exhaust is exactly in this position, but mine was, not a big deal. This install was on a 2009 Dodge Ram 2500 4WD.

Awesome!

Review from a similar LoadLifter 7500XL in Vehicle Suspension


Air bag installation was pretty simple having to perform on the ground. Instructions could have been a little clearer but not too bad. My only complaint is that when the truck is empty it rides rougher (5 Lbs. of air in bags) as the bags go in where the bump stop used to be. This limits upward travel and makes it rougher. I use these to support the 8K lbs load from 5th wheel and they lift it nicely at 90 psi.

Review from a similar LoadLifter 7500XL in Vehicle Suspension


This product makes the ride on the truck much smoother while towing and carrying a load. It was fairly involved installing it due to my having a lift kit on the vehicle...which required quite a bit of modification. Overall, I am pleased.

Review from a similar LoadLifter 7500XL in Vehicle Suspension


Not usable - bags not attached to bracket/brace that holds them. Mfg failure (not crimped together). Had to purchase identical set elsewhere since going out on a trip - was able to inspect to insure they were correct. Good product. No quality control.


Comments
I sorry to hear that these did not work out for you. The good news is that if you think you have a manufacturer defect, these air bags come with a lifetime warranty. I have already sent your information to our customer service team and they will be getting in touch with you about this.

Review from a similar LoadLifter 7500XL in Vehicle Suspension


I watched the installation video which was very good. The instructions that came with the product were also great. My 2019 Ram 2500 has very large tires and thank god my Son was here to help me. He did the heavy lifting. Installation went very smooth. The only problem was one of the nipples that screw into the bag leaked. I tried tightening it but that did not work. I ended up removing it and putting some yellow gas tape on it and reinstalled. It did not leak after that. I also installed a cigarette lighter in the bed of the truck and the inflation nipples nearby. I may install an inflation kit in the future but this manual method works for pulling my 5th wheel every month or so.

Review from a similar LoadLifter 7500XL in Vehicle Suspension


Nice kit. I got this one specifically because of the upper bracket. It prevents flex on the frame channel while under load. Good install instructions with pictures.

Review from a similar LoadLifter 7500XL in Vehicle Suspension


I have been using the airlift load lifter for a little over a year on my 2019 F-250 to haul a 2021 Grand Design Solitude 310 GK. The load lifter has performed flawlessly. My only recommendation would be to ensure you have another person to help with the install.

Review from a similar LoadLifter 7500XL in Vehicle Suspension


The Air Lift LoadLifter 7500 XL Air Helper Springs consists of quality components that are relatively easy to install. The accompanying instructions provide easy-to-follow assembly and installation steps. All components are bolt-on, with no drilling or vehicle modifications required. Once installed, the Air Springs easily provide an adjustable lift for the rear of the vehicle, which ensures a correct ride height. This is my third vehicle outfitted with Air Lift Air Helper Springs. I highly recommend this brand to anyone considering air helper springs.

Review from a similar LoadLifter 7500XL in Vehicle Suspension


Game changer for towing heavy. I got manual bags. Didn't want the fuss of running wires and managing more automation. Have had installed for 1 year thereabouts.

Super simple. Hook up, air up and go. I keep a little dc compressor so I can just air up right off the truck.

I did my own install. I'm Not even close to a mechanic. Hardest part was removing the old corroded hardware on the trucks.

Highly recommend

Review from a similar LoadLifter 7500XL in Vehicle Suspension


The Air Lift 7500 XL is an excellent addition to my truck and managing the load and ride under load. I haul a 3 car wedge and the ride is much improved with no sagging of dip on the rear of my 3500 dully. I highly recommend this product

Review from a similar LoadLifter 7500XL in Vehicle Suspension


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.

Ram 2019 Dually... bolted right in and works excellently. I highly recommend if you have a 5th wheel over 17,000lbs. Arrived promptly and all parts contained. Easy to install the pump and wire also. Great product and company!

Review from a similar LoadLifter 7500XL in Vehicle Suspension


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.


Comments
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.

Review from a similar 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!

    The Air Lift LoadLifter 7500 XL Air Helper Springs part # AL86KV are what I recommend for a 2022 Ford F-350 DRW. This is a heavy duty kit with 7,500 lb rating that will be perfect for the constant load of a truck bed camper. It will help reduce sag as well as other issues from the heavy load such as sloppy steering response. The air bags are a direct bolt-on fit with no modifications needed.

  • How To Reduce Hitch/Pin Weight While 5th Wheel Towing
    Yes, removing items from the front of the trailer or rear of the vehicle will reduce weight over the rear axle but this would still not allow you to exceed any of the manufacturer's payload or GAWR ratings if that is the goal. These figures will remain unchanged from the manufacturer. That said, if you're having issues with a heavy pin weight we do have options to help mitigate these. I recommend the Air Lift LoadLifter 7500 XL Air Helper Springs part # AL86KV for DRW or part # AL55FJ or...

    The air bag kit I recommend for a 2020 Ford F-350 Dually FX4 is the Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs part # F35FV. I recommend Firestone over Air Lift as the air bags have a better construction (crimp rolled vs band clamp) and the kits have fewer components so they are easier to install. The kit will also work on models with an on-bed hitch.

However, I highly recommend the Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs - Rear Axle # F88ZR over the Air Lift. The construction and quality of the # F88ZR is much better overall, and it has a 5,000 lb load-leveling capacity which is more than enough. These feature four layers of reinforced rubber to ensure durability and enhance load support. The rubber springs are also attached...
