Get the Best of Both Springs

The air springs and jounce springs in this system work together to give you the best ride whether your truck is loaded or unloaded. Air Lift's LoadLifter 5000 Ultimate air springs have internal urethane foam jounces that protect the air springs and provide added ride comfort when your air pressure is low. The jounces also allow you to temporarily carry a load if the air springs lose air pressure. This gives your pickup truck air springs that are easier to maintain.


Air Springs Level Your Load

Carrying heavy cargo in your truck bed or trailer puts extra stress on your truck. Your brakes erode faster, your tires wear unevenly, and handling suffers severely. When towing, you might also experience excessive sway, bottoming out, and even inaccurate and unsafe headlight aim.


By pairing your existing suspension with LoadLifter 5000 Ultimate air springs, you can seriously beef up your suspension, ensure equal load distribution, and get the support you need. The springs provide up to 5,000 lbs of load-leveling capacity (depending on the weight-carrying capacity of your vehicle) and distribute the weight of your payload to all 4 wheels. As a result, the stress on your factory suspension is significantly reduced. LoadLifter's air bags are adjustable from 5 to 100 psi for precise support, and they can be inflated equally for front-to-back leveling or independently of one another for side-to-side leveling.


The air springs are made of high-quality, 2-ply, fabric-reinforced rubber. Most air bags lose air at the ends where the bag is enclosed with steel caps. These caps can rust and corrode over time, creating small holes. But the endcaps on Air Lift air bags are fashioned from corrosion-proof Zytel nylon, a material that is both stronger and lighter than steel, ensuring that the air bags won't lose air.


Roll plates on Air Lift 5000 Ultimate air spring

The air bags also have Air Lift's exclusive roll plates, which protect the air springs and beef up their load capacity. These sturdy plates help guard the springs from moving parts under your vehicle that might puncture the air bags. The plates also provide a larger surface area for each spring to roll on. The extra surface area gives you a higher spring rate at a lower air pressure, resulting in a better ride.


Built-In Jounce Springs Add Control and Comfort

Air Lift 5000 Ultimate air spring with jounce spring inside

The closed-cell urethane jounce spring inside each air spring gives you a more stable, comfortable ride. Each jounce acts as an overload spring and engages when your current air pressure level isn't enough to support your load. So on a rough road, the springs will kick in if needed to absorb bumps and shocks and help you to avoid bottoming out. When the jounces support a load, they adjust progressively - the more weight you pile on, the stiffer they become. The urethane material engages more smoothly than rubber jounces so you get a less jerky ride.


Because these jounces are taller than your factory jounce bumpers, they engage sooner than your factory jounces would to provide better support. And if the LoadLifter 5000 Ultimate air springs have insufficient or zero air pressure, the internal jounces will help to temporarily support your suspension and protect it from damage until you can repair or adjust the air spring system.


Easy Installation

This system installs with the included brackets and hardware. Just mount the springs, inflate them, and ride. To inflate the LoadLifter springs, you just have to pump in air through the inflation valves. A line kit is included with the springs so that you can install the manual inflation valves (1 for each spring). These are typically mounted on the bumper but can be installed anywhere that is easily accessible. If you want to make the springs even easier to use, you can get a compressor and gauge system (sold separately) that allows you to monitor and adjust the springs from the cab of your truck.


Lifetime Warranty

Along with a lifetime warranty that has no mileage restrictions, Air Lift offers a 60-day satisfaction guarantee. Just install and use LoadLifter 5000 Ultimate springs for 60 days, and if you are not satisfied at the end of this time, you can remove and return them for a full refund.

The Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Ultimate air bags work great and are reliable. I ended pairing the with the WirelessOne air compressor with the remote so I could keep a constant PSI while towing. I use them to tweak my Equalizer weight distribution bars while towing, I drop the pressure to stiffen the ride or add pressure to loosen it up. It seems after a year, it's starting to leak a little, but normally all you need to do is reset the hoses that have slipped a little over time. 707841

Got here quick and in great condition. I just finished the left side, will do the right side tomorrow it went a little slow because I spent the first hour reading the book and taking inventory of parts I received, as far as I can tell all parts are here. Still have to decide where to put the compresser and the manifold, should finish it tomorrow I will get back to you after I use it. GWI 400707

Product was just ok the fit was really not that great. one side always seems to leak down, I have checked and rechecked everything but no luck stopping leak. With air in the system it can be hard to get under most trailers as the trailer jacks don't run up high enough so you are always taking air out and adding air back. For my application I am running the min amount of air and having these problems would have expected it at the higher pressures but not at these low numbers. 384418

Great product! Easy install. Tech Tip, On my 2018 F250 in order to install the driver side air bag unbolt the lower shock mounting bolt and swing shock up and out of the way. Have a 2018 28.5 Jayco fifth wheel 1400 LBS pin weight only need 10 psi to level the truck! Rides great! Thanks Again E Trailer 566616

Air bags work great when the truck is fully loaded but the ride is very brutal when the truck is empty and only 5psig in the bags. The internal bump stops appear to be a little bit to long or stiff. The install was very easy and took less then 2 hours, overall very nice product. 581041

The staff at etrailer was great. They verified that this product would fit my application even though there is a fifth wheel rail bracket involved. Also I ordered multiple products and one of the products was delayed. The offered to split the order so I could receive the air bags sooner, which I needed because I have an appointment to have them installed 425153

Review from a similar LoadLifter 5000 Ultimate in Vehicle Suspension


As usual, the service from etrailer.com was great. The installation went pretty well. The instructions were clear and understandable and the installation went as depicted in the instructions. The most difficult part was routing the air lines in safe areas (especially around the exhaust pipe) and then inserting the end into the fitting on the top of the unit since it is nearly impossible to see what you are doing. However, all went well and I had no leaks. Can't wait to get some miles on the truck to see how the ride is with and without the trailer attached. 150325

Review from a similar LoadLifter 5000 Ultimate in Vehicle Suspension


Works good, followed the instructions to a tee for install I’m a tech at a ford dealership so wasn’t hard to read and install accordingly, good quality in all hardware my issue is one of the airbags has developed a small leak in less than 6 months time and only a handful of uses as instructed always kept 15-20 psi in the bags not sure why one failed or developed a leak but will see how the lifetime warranty works out 615567


Comments
Its fairly rare for the leak to occur in the bags themselves, the point where the air lines join the fittings is a much more likely culprit. The best way to find exactly where the leak is would be to add a little bit of water to a cup with a little bit of liquid dish detergent, and paint it on all the fittings, as well as at the schrader valve where you fill the system. A small paintbrush works well. When the system is pressured up, look for the bubbles and thatll be your leak. Leaks most frequently happen at the fittings because of the air line not being cut perfectly straight. If you find the bags are indeed the culprit, they are covered by a lifetime warranty. You can get warranty info by calling our Customer Service folks at 800-298-8924.

Work perfect! I installed these on my 2014 tundra to help with hauling a 30’ enclosed trailer when we were moving. Trailer weighed basically my max tow rating for my truck (10500lbs) and with these bags the truck sat perfectly level and towed like a dream! Well the supercharger also helped. 521145

Watched the video, took about an hour to do the installation myself. I added this product to level out truck when hauling my fifth wheel camper. Overall great craftsmanship on this product, easy installation. I just couldn’t drill holes in my new bumper for the valve stems, so I add a piece of aluminum angle iron, drilled two 5/16 holes and added two self tapping screws to the hitch, turned out well. 541624

If your truck is a daily driver don't buy this kit, buy the kit without jounce bumps. The ride is terrible. The jounce bumps are too tall. I have 9 psi in the air bags and I still hit the jounce bumps over every little bump. I will be removing this kit after I’m done towing. The only reason for the 2 stars is that it was easy to install. 664950

Review from a similar LoadLifter 5000 Ultimate in Vehicle Suspension


Air Lift Loadlifter 5000 is doing the job I had hoped for and doing what the data listed for them said. I know the installation time shown by the "professionals" was said to be about 4 hours, but when you are 70+ years old and retired, I took more like 12 hours and enjoyed a lot of laying down during the installation. Which I did by myself. I would recommend these air lifts to anyone that wants to improve the "Ford Tough" ride and lift the rear to support any load, in my case, a 5th wheel trailer. 467900


Comments
After about a year the Air Lifts are doing just great! The 5th wheel trailer that loads the rear axle now rides level and is exactly why I purchased the Air Lifts. Easy to add or reduce air pressure as needed. Thanks for asking.

Review from a similar LoadLifter 5000 Ultimate in Vehicle Suspension


Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 installed on a 2016 F350, pulling a Momentum 328M. While it was not the cure all for ride quality that some claim, there was an improvement in ride quality, especially at bridge joints and rail road tracks and my headlights are now back on the road when towing the RV. Shipping was prompt and all parts needed were included with the kit. Installation was simple (watching the video helped a lot), getting the rear of the truck elevated (I drove mine up on a set of ramps) and removing the spare tire simplified the process as it allowed me to sit under the truck. I had one leak at the fitting where the air hose screws into the air spring, it was repaired by removing the fitting, applying teflon tape, and reinstalling. I am satisfied with the product and would recommend to anyone considering adding air springs. 402956

Review from a similar LoadLifter 5000 Ultimate in Vehicle Suspension


Installation took about 2 1/2 hrs. on my 2017 Tundra. I thought the instructions were very accurate and easy to follow. I did notice there was no torque spec. for the 3/8 bolts that attached the bottom plate and bowl to the air bag. Other then that everything was straight forward. I'm an old school tech. so I just used a standard USS thread torque chart. I installed these air bags to help stabilize the load when pulling my 32 ft travel trailer. Will be putting them to the test in a couple of weeks on a rather long trip. As for now........5 stars for the installation and etrailers support. 505735


Comments
Lawrence, thank you for your review. The torque spec of the 3/*8 bolt is listed at the bottom of page 7 of the installation instructions. Since these figures are subject to change I cant list them here for liability reasons.

Review from a similar LoadLifter 5000 Ultimate in Vehicle Suspension


Good day gents, I recently purchased the load lifter 5k. So far this is a fantastic product. They are rugged and heavy duty. everything bolts up nice and tight. I separated my instillation by two days; left side one day and right side the next it was a comfortable and less stressful pace. The instructions were a little difficult to follow but they include several schematics to refer to. I haven't experienced any leaks so far and they are holding pressure. There is an aftermarket super glide 5th wheel hitch in my truck so I did have to use a 1/2" drill to reveal the holes in my frame. Also if you have a hitch like mine or any aftermarket hitch you might need a longer 8x55 mm bolt for the left side that you won't find out until later....yea. I pull a 14k fifth wheel with my F250 and it works out great. Thanks again for an excellent solution. 200336

Review from a similar LoadLifter 5000 Ultimate in Vehicle Suspension


I compared this product with the Firestone offering for my vehicle and chose AirLift for several reasons: 1- The internal jounce bumpers. I liked the idea of being able to run with little to no air pressure. I also thought this necessary because I needed eliminate the factory bump-stops to install. 2- This product was made in Lansing, MI. I like supporting local industry. 3- I liked the fact that the load from the spring transferred directly into the frame of the truck vs. the offset brackets that came with the Firestone product. I am impressed with and disappointed with this product. We will start with my likes: - The bags do carry the load. I can level the truck regardless of what is in the back or on the trailer hitch. - The towing experience is much better with the bags in the back. The rear springs on the Tundra (probably true of most half ton trucks) for 900# of tongue weight even with weight distribution. The bags eliminated the extreme up/down bounce that come with very stiff weight distribution bars. - The kit is very well engineered and the installation went very well. - Airbags are an excellent compliment to a good WD hitch. My dislikes: - The internal jounce bumpers are awful. IMO they engage way too early. With no pressure in the bags they might as well be steel blocks. The truck crashes into them after only 1.5" of travel (railroad crossings, speed bumps, and undulations in the road. With 5-10 psi in the bags this is better but the stock ride of the truck is gone. It now feels more like a ¾ ton truck in the back (smoother because you are riding on air but there is very little suspension motion). - An airbag acts as a spring when the suspension compresses but it also acts like a spring when the suspension extends. The down travel of the rear suspension is limited. You notice this when you drive through a dip in the road at speed. Not only do I have limited down travel but when the tuck unloads the back of truck runs out of up travel way before the front. I am not sure what the future hold. I love the bags while towing my travel trailer and hate the bags when unloaded. I think that the best option would be a SumoSpring. I did not go this route because most people say that they engage to abruptly and wreck the ride. Well, so do these Airbags. At least with a SumoSpring I would keep the down travel of the suspension. I am considering purchasing a set for evaluation. AirLift offers an unconditional 60 day return policy. However 60 days did not prove to be enough time to really evaluate this product. Right away I noticed the problems with the ride of the truck. I played with air pressure etc. At 90 days I knew what I really didn't like. I wrote AirLift an e-mail but did not receive a response. Would I buy again? Maybe. It is a love/hate relationship. 427052


Comments
I have removed the airbags from my vehicle and replaced them with a set of SumoSprings. I am much happier with the SumoSprings.

    I reached out to Air Lift who said that the Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Ultimate Air Helper Springs # AL88204 will not work with a 2019 GMC Sierra 1500 Limited Denali with the Adaptive Ride Control. Though this system did replace the MagneRide, it still impedes the use of most suspension enhancements, including the Air Lift.

    The only differences between the two Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 parts is fit. The # AL88211 is designed to fit your 2016 GMC Sierra 1500 only if it has an 8 foot bed; otherwise you would need # AL88204. Apart from that they would be the same product for your Sierra. The LoadLifter 5000 offers, as the name suggests, up to 5,000 lbs of load-leveling capacity. They will be a great asset in terms of leveling your truck while also improving your truck's handling when hauling a load or towing....

  • Is the Internal Jounce Bumper of the Air Lift Air Spring Kits an Air Spring
    The internal jounce bumper of the # AL88204 that you referenced is not affected by air pressure. It is not an air spring, it is a rubber spring. If you will be hauling on the higher end of the capacity of your vehicle then I would recommend the jounce bumper kit # AL88204. For a compressor kit to go with this kit I would recommend the # AL25592.
