Photo Comparing LoadLifter 7500 XL with LoadLifter 5000

LoadLifter 7500 XL Ultimate springs have up to 20 percent more air spring volume than LoadLifter 5000 springs. The available volume in these 7" double-bellows air springs enable greater leveling strength at lower pressures. This ensures maximum load-lifting abilities and a great ride quality no matter the load.

Easy install on my own. One year later they’re still working great. I haul a 10,000 lb tractor and Skid Steer as well as a 40’ GN full of hay, mostly. I typically leave the airbags at 50psi and that seems to do the trick. My dad also did some hotshot trucking for a few months and we love these airbags. A huge noticeable difference after airbags.

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.



by:

Had issue with the NPT threads leaking over time. Took them back out and Teflon doped and sealed. Maintains air pressure with no pressure decay for months now. etrailers prompt order shipment and packaging were excellent.

2020 Ford F-350 Super Duty

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.

Great service and fast delivery

This is my second Air Lift 7500XL purchase from Etrailer. Each time the and (actually) everything I've purchased here has been great and the experts that have helped along the way have been top-notch. I highly recommend the Air Lift 7500XL bags, I had them on a 2008 Silverado 2500HD extended cab, and my current truck, 2008 Silverado 2500HD Crew Cab. I haul a 20' double axel steel livestock trailer and slide-in truck camper. My family shows livestock and the air lift system handles it all great.



by:

Have dealt with e trailers on many occasions never disappoint with their customer service and support.
Installation went smoothly



by:

etrailer has low prices and quick shipping! The Air Lift Loadlifter helper spring kit I purchased for my truck is an excellent product.



by:

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.



by:

Definitely a heavy duty and easy kit to install. Like others have recommended, save yourself the aggravation and take the rear rims/tires off. Also, I used 1/4" expandable braided sleeve on the air lines for added protection against the outside elements. Lastly, if you have an after market exhaust you will need to buy bigger stainless hose clamps for the heat shield.



by:

I have a 2019 2500 Silverado with a duramax. Generally only used to pull our 13k fifth wheel or a dump trailer. The bags work excellent and the compressor continues to function as required. I am located outside Buffalo,ny so the harsh winters coupled with salt and other chemicals have not seemed to effect the function of the onboard compressor or air bags.



by:

I am very happy with the 7500 XL airbags I purchased from etrailer. The quality of the product was exceptional, the kits included everything I needed for the complete installation, and the instructions that were supplied with the kit were very specific in detailed. I've been in the trucking business all my life, and I know what works and does not work when it comes to supporting weight efficiently and safely. This kit met all my expectations and I recommend it to anyone who would need the extra support.



by:

Instant improvement! Recommend this for any heavy duty truck as a daily driver. I can’t rate the hauling difference due to only recently installing the helper springs.



by:

It is a very good system, it has performed as expected. The compressor is a little loud, but it runs so little, it’s not a problem!



by:

Doesn’t fit a 2008 GMC Sierra 2500HD without major fabrication. The brake controller bracket prevents the driver side upper bracket from fitting properly. Is this an issue with the Firestone product? If so I’d like a return and replacement. I am not about to cut off my brake controller bracket. I was really hoping to have these installed for my upcoming camping trip. Very disappointed.



by:

When I enquired about shipping due date due to snow storm delays, my order was located and delivered so quickly.
Installed at Dodge dealership. And made hauling four horses over the same week safer and more comfortable for me!

  • Recommended Heavy Duty Air Lift System For A 2012 Chevy Silverado 3500 With Dual Rear Wheels
    If you are wanting a heavy duty Air Lift system, you will want the LoadLifter 7500 XL Air Helper Springs # AL57538.

They are rated up to 7,500 pounds of load leveling capacity at 100 psi and are American made. As to these not having an internal jounce, I did contact Air Lift and they are looking to add the internal jounces to the 7,500 XL in the future, but they...

  • Compatibility of Air Lift Helper Springs With TorkLift StableLoad on 2021 Ford F-350 Dually 4x4
    You are able to use the TorkLift StableLoad Suspension Upgrade # TLA7200 with the Air Lift LoadLifter 7500 XL Air Helper Springs # AL86KV on your 2021 Ford F-350 Dually 4x4. You must have the upper overload spring on your leaf springs to use the StableLoad. The reason the factory bump stops must be removed for the Air Lift Springs is they mount in place of the bump stop. The StableLoad mounts on the frame towards the end of the spring and will not interfere with the mounting of the air...

    The application for each air helper spring kit is the difference. The difference between the two is that the Air Lift 57552 which we carry as part # AL55FJ is for single rear wheel models while the 57550 which we offer as # AL86KV is for dual rear wheel model 2020 F-350 trucks. For your SRW model, you'd want to use # AL55FJ.

    Thanks for reaching out! For your application I recommend using the Air Lift LoadLifter 7500 XL Air Helper Springs # AL86KV. So far (January 2023) AirLift hasn't confirmed the fit which is why we don't have it listed. With that being said, I checked with Firestone and their Ride-Rite air bag kit fits so, logically, the AirLift kit will fit as well and it's just a matter of time before they are able to list it as a fit.

    The only air bag kit currently available for a 2020 Ford F-350 FX4 is from Firestone, the Firestone Ride-Rite Red Label Air Helper Springs part # F95FV. This kit was actually just redesigned for the FX4 models. I know you were looking at AirLift but they don't have an option yet. That said, the Firestone kits are better than those from AirLift as they contain fewer parts therefore are easier to install and the airbag design is much more durable.

I believe the fitment issues that they referred to were with the Kit # AL86KV that does not fit the Tremor. You should have no issues installing the # AL55FJ on your F-350.

That said, we do offer a kit from Firestone in the Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs part # F2600 which is the same as the kit you mentioned but from Firestone instead of Air Lift.

    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 can certainly point you in the right direction. I agree with you that the 2,800 sumo springs # SSR-127-54 will not be enough for the kind of weight you are pulling with your 2022 Ford F-350. They may help slightly with sagging, but you would be overloading the springs and that is never recommended. A Timbren # TFR350SDJ would be much more appropriate for this application. These are 8,600 lb capacity rubber springs which will absolutely help eliminate sagging, and improve your ride quality...
