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 3/4- or 1-ton pickup, motor home, or commercial 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.


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 easily. Just mount the springs, inflate them, and ride. The springs install between your truck's frame and its leaf springs. 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.

After a bad experience with [online vendor] I ordered these from etrailer and received them in just a few days. I installed this complete bolt-on kit in under an hour. I have never had something so easy to install, improve the ride and handling as these air bags did. Just 30 lbs of air and no more roll, quieter smoother ride and no more anxiety passing trucks. I highly reccommend these from etrailer.

One year and many more miles on the road my air bags are still intact and performing better than expected. Thank you etrailer folks.

2016 Holiday Rambler Vacationer Motorhome

The instructions were very simple to follow and the kit from Air Lift made a world of difference in the ride. Not only was it easy to install the kit on both sides, but I was surprised to find that I didn't even have to remove the tires. However, I did use the levelers to give me a little more room between the springs and the frame. The only thing I would add to the instructions was how to remove the jounce bumpers (it just says to remove them). One side had a bolt with a 14mm hex head which was inserted up from the bottom, but the nut was a 15mm hex. If you try to use a 15mm socket on the bolt head, I think you may get the socket stuck inside the jounce bumper. Even a deep 14mm socket was tight against the bumper and not long enough to reach the bolt head unless I used an extension. The other side was also a 14mm hex head bolt, but it threaded directly into the frame with no nut. It's easy to see the bolt head once the bumper is out, but not so much with only a couple of inches between the bottom and the springs. All of the components seem very high quality and well made. Of course, etrailer shipped everything very quickly and I'm sure they were only a phone call away if I would have needed help with the installation. 2016 Holiday Rambler 36SBT

Allegro

Purchased for a 2014 Tiffin Allegro Open Road F53/22K Lbs chassis. I intended to start my suspension upgrade hear as I had a list to the front passenger side and this seemed the fist thing that needed correcting and I would proceed from there with sway bars, shocks etc. It has been a year and I see no need.
Much to my surprise, these air bags were easy to install, under 3hrs., and corrected the list to one side, softened the front end jarring from the road and greatly reduced the suc-in/push of passing semi trucks. I run 55lbs of air on the pass. side and 45/50 on the driver. I would say they corrected 80% of my problems and have not seen the need to add/correct sway bars or shocks. Also limited the front end bounce from large dip in the road. The only other thing I am considering adding is a front end center steering wheel stabilizer.



by:

Hard to say if I like it or not. Really don't notice much difference. Also, when I park on a site and my automatic jacks come out. If my tires are off the ground or close to being off the ground then the bags are really stretched, so I am afraid this will weaken and tare them. So I have to lower my unit, drive up on some boards and then re extend my jacks. So this takes a lot more time then I had to use before.

I have left them on and they are still functional with what they do. I still put boards under my front tires to drive up on if the site is off a lot for when my jacks are deployed.

Regarding the installation on a 2012 Thor/Damon Daybreak 28PD: The Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 was installed in about 3.5 hours with hand tools. No drilling required. Wheels were not removed, though hydraulic jacks were employed w/jack stands for safety. Instructions provided/downloaded were very clear. The valve stems replaced the hardware securing the front license plate bracket which made inflating convenient. Note that later, the gauge, air pump & hardware were added, but the valve stems were maintained. This system provided a marked improvement in ride quality. The rear axle air springs are on the list for installation during the first of 2023.

The air lift is of high quality. I was able to lift my 2023 Thor Sequence RV 2.5 inch with the air bags. I needed that to get over a hump in my drive way. I loved the fact I did not need any additional parts for installation. I would highly recommend this product. It will be very useful for leveling at camp sites you can level one side at a time.



by:

So I installed the airbags in my drive way. It wasn't anything difficult. My truck had some ass drag to being with but I primarily purchased the airbags because at the time I was trailering a boat I bought. SO I needed them to level my ride while towing. I currently run the bags at 50 psi and 60psi while towing. They have worked perfectly and added comfort to my ride as well. I noticed more of a bounce in the rear of the truck so I up graded my shocks to bilstien 5160 rear shocks. Problem solved.



by:

The airlift bags are really nice quality! I would say they could go into a little more detail in the instructions for putting the brackets together for the diy people.



by:

The kit works very well, the driver side install took 4/5 hours with all the extra hoses gas lines, vent tube mount in the way. Had to cut a extra bracket which was under the bump stop and went up the side of the frame, wouldn't let the air bag bolt move over far enough to align with the old bump stop hole. Once that was removed everything was great. The driver took just over an hour. Finding a good location for the airlines still haven't they are in the fender area tucked away for now. They work great, now just seeing what is the best psi for my van. Didn't install a compressor maybe in the future I carry a compressor for work anyway so not hard to add air if needed. Thanks would recommend using these. Plus cheaper and easier that buying new springs and replacing them.



by:

This was installed on a 2021 Chevy Express 2500 van conversion by Explorer Conversion Vans. Explorer installed an Eaton rear suspension and it was not up to the task of a heavy conversion van. I think the air bags help but I will need to upgrade the shock absorbers to eliminate some of the bounce from the air bags. There were three primary issues with the installation:

1) The parking brake cable bracket is in the way and has to be cut off the axle. I attached the parking brake cable clamp to one of the Air Lift bolts using a nut. This is not something every at-home installer can do.
2) The air hose is barely long enough. I specifically asked how long the hose is because I wanted to route it where the future compressor will go and was told there is enough to go around the entire vehicle. That is incorrect. I will have to replace the hoses at my cost when I upgrade to the onboard compressor system.
3) The etrailer video says to drill the mounting holes to 5/16" diameter. The 3/8"-16 bolts immediately stripped out. I should have drilled the holes to 9/32" diameter.

I have bought a lot from etrailer and I will purchase from them again. Most of my issues stem from the poor design and instructions of the Air Lift product. For example, it doesn’t say anywhere on the box or product literature how much air hose is provided.



by:

Product was delivered quickly. Took about 1 1/2 to install these air bags. The instructions were very helpful and precise. Ran the air fittings out at bottom of bumper in the black trim next to hitch. I have had these on for about 3 weeks and just went camping. The bags help keep my 40’ travel trailer riding smoothly and gave the support that was needed being that my camper is tongue heavy. Would definitely recommend these bags. I would also recommend etrailer because they was very helpful with my questions and got the product out quick.



by:

Tow 11,000 lb. FW witha Ford F250. Love the feel of the Air Lift airbags, and the insurance of the internal jounce bumpers if needed. Over 5,000 miles logged, and still going strong.



by:

Easy installation of this product and it works perfectly. Keeps my heavy load dump trailer level every time I pull it. The ride of my vehicle hasn't changed a single bit. Great product I would recommend it.



by:

These air bags made a big difference in my truck and answer to my problem of hauling an atv in the bed. Notice the difference in the space between the bed and wheel between the two pics. The kayaks don't add thst much more weight. The air held for a five hour drive.



by:

This system came with all the correct pieces and was easy to assemble. The instructions were simple to follow and everything fit as described in the text. I routed the air lines to the outside of the frame rails to create a natural heat shield from the exhaust. I also upgraded the zip ties to heavy duty cable ties for securing the air lines all around. I also added jam nuts to all the bolts, which was probably unnecessary but gives me peace of mind.



by:

They were easy for any handy guy to install . It took about 2 hrs. They lifted my 2500 ram to sit level with my 37ft. 5th wheel. I even leave them as is, when I'm not hooked up, and don't notice a difference. I ran two separate lines to near my rear license plate, no compressor. I'm glad I didn't spend that extra money. You rarely change the pressure, and it's so easy to do.



by:

This is a terrible product. the first ride on these bags, i knew they wouldn't work. the ride at lowest 5psi is way too stiff. it gives me headache to drive my truck now with the ride stiffness. I have to ease over speedbumps to avoid whiplash. My truck is aweful to ride in now. Etrailer was unhelpful to return this product and they really shouldn't be selling it. 2008 toyota Tundra 4x4TRD. I have read the Firestone Ride Rite are better riding bags. i hate to lose $500, but I need my truck ride back.

  • Air Suspension Availability For a 2013 Ford F-53 RV Motorhome Chassis
    The only air suspension parts we carry for your 2013 Ford F-53 chassis are the Air Lift Load Lifter 5000 Front # AL88240. We do not carry any air shocks or regular shocks for your chassis. The Air Lift will require drilling and is a fit for all except the 24,000LB and 26,000LB chassis.

This system will allow you to control the air pressure each spring separately...
