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.

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.

Great product, easy installation! Really helpful videos! 2005 GMC 2500 HD.


Easy, at home installation & preforms as advertised


I've been on the road with are Fifth Wheel and other rigs for 15 years. I can't live without your products, and your great service ! Thanks! Jake!

2010 Chevrolet Silverado

2005 2500hd Silverado. Installation took a little longer than expected. Instruction drawings/ figures could be better. The product it's self was well designed with enough adjustment to properly align the air springs over the axle. One small leak at one of the 90 degree elbows, was taken care of in 10 seconds by adjusting the fitting. Overall I liked the design and material quality + I didn't have to drill any holes. I will be installing my new truck camper tomorrow!


Excellent service,it got here so fast i haven't had time to install it yet..The product look good, well made.Thank you etrailer and airlift.

Aside from a couple of missing parts of minimal inconvenience and a few extra parts that consumed some time trying to figure out how to use when there was no need for them the installation went smoothly and they work as designed.

Review from a similar LoadLifter 5000 Ultimate in Vehicle Suspension

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.

Im very happy with the air bags. I rv full time, so I tow a 14,000lb 5th wheel. The bags keep my 34ton truck level. The bags dont have much if any effect on the ride. Id buy them again

Review from a similar LoadLifter 5000 Ultimate in Vehicle Suspension

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.

Thank you for your feedback. I reached out to Airlift and found that the kit will come with 16 feet of airline hose. If an additional compressor system is purchased then an additional 20 feet will come with it depending on the kit. In the manual there are instructions on how to route the brake lines for non disc and disc brake systems.

Review from a similar LoadLifter 5000 Ultimate in Vehicle Suspension

This 88205 kit was installed into a 2010 Roadtrek 210P (Chevy express 3500 chassis). If you own one, you know these vans run overloaded even on a good day. This kit was installed to increase stability and to reduce the "crash" as the van goes over bumps. These vans ride on the overload spring and there is no real progression to the rear suspension. The airbags will help absorb some of the impact from bumps in a progressive manner. I will also be installing new front coil springs to bring the ride height back to factory spec. The rear height has come up about an inch (25 psi in the bags) - as you can see in the van picture, there's a rake to the van. This will be resolved when the new coil springs are installed to raise the front height by a couple of inches. I will leave the front Sumo Springs jounce bumpers (black=medium) in place with the new coils. I mention all this in particular for 210 owners - you need to address both front and rear suspension issues.

First, the results. I was anticipating an improvement in driveability but I was very surprised at the huge improvement. Test drive was with 25 psi in the bags - I'll test other pressures to see what they result in. There is much less lean on turns and the rear suspension feels resistant to making every bump a big event. The bags absorb the initial shock and improve ride quality significantly, a lot of the cringe factor is now gone. Much more pleasurable to drive.

The internal jounce bumpers are worth the extra cost - not only do they help reduce the shock of bumps, but they supplement the response of the rear suspension. By this I mean that the airbag will initially take the impact, then for larger bumps, the internal jounce bumpers will progressively absorb more impact. At the same time the rear springs are able to work better since they are not completely dependent on the thick overload spring. Additionally, if an airbag loses air completely, the vehicle can still ride on the internal jounce bumper until repairs can be made.

I installed the fill valves below the rear bumper lip (they point downwards). A bit clunky to get to, but I plan a later install of an on-board compressor. The amount of air line was just enough to run to the back bumper, you need to plan carefully on routing to ensure you have enough line. I did not combine the lines, each bag is filled individually. In my case, due to location of spare tire, water/sewer tanks, fuel tank and coach storage I wanted to be able to tweak each side to get to level ground to fender lip measurement on each side. Gives me a level vehicle even with varied load locations.

I think this is a better kit for our application than the Firestone air bag kit as this kit places the airbag right between the frame and the axle, the best place for load bearing. The Firestone kit places the top bag mount on a bracket mounted to the side of the frame. This can weaken over time with the bracket always trying to resist being pushed off the frame. The Air Lift kit doesn't need any connection to the leaf spring u-bolts and I like that too.

The kit included everything I needed. One of the few times I've not had to change something in order to do a complete thorough installation. Instructions were fine and I liked the torque numbers given - sure you can get the bolts "tight enough" but it's good when a mfg provides complete data. I used the heat sleeve and shield too, the shield is a good idea.

Before final install of the airbag assembly, check the angle of the horizontal bar that extends to the rear from the top bag mount bracket. It's a bit off from the bend in the frame, just needs a check and possible tweaking of the bar. Easy to do, and this will let the top bag mount bracket bear directly on the frame as it's designed to do. The lower bag mount bracket installs easily, and I used the relocating bolt/spacer for the passenger side hand brake cable. Nice to have that detail covered.

On 210's you may have a 1.5 in spacer under the leaf spring - installed by Roadtrek. It will probably have a ledge extension for the frame bumper. You'll be removing the frame bumper anyway, and the ledge extension needs to be cut off to provide space for the airbag. I removed the spacer, cut off the extension and re-installed the spacer. I replaced the original crusty u-bolts at the same time - you should not re-use u-bolts, especially these high torque bolts. U-bolts stretch and also distort at the threads. Get new u-bolts and check them for a few hundred miles after they are installed as they may stretch a bit more. U-bolts are square bend, 2 9/16in. inside dimension to get over 2 1/2in. spring width. Originals were about 11 3/4in long but you can knock an inch off the length. I used oem length and you can see they are a bit long.

I like cost-effective results - this kit provided those results in our case. You always hope for the best and I think that it's of particular benefit to our tubby 210s with that substantial rear weight and overhang. Took me a couple of days to get everything done, but it's well worth the time and cost. Highly recommended.

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.


Review from a similar LoadLifter 5000 Ultimate in Vehicle Suspension

Appears to be an extremely well made product. The instructions are much better than most and even include color pictures. There are also several instructional videos available. However, I did find a couple flaws in the kit. On the driver side, one of the bolts to attach the lower bracket to the axle rubs against the ABS brake wire. On the passenger side: the odd shaped axle strap doesn't fit as nicely as advertised and I had to message the brake line mounting strap out of the way slightly. There is also an issue with the exhaust being really close to the airbag and airline. The kit provides one heat shield to protect the airbag but there isn't anything to protect the airline from the exhaust heat and the exhaust pipe is only about an inch away from where the airline attaches to the top of the airbag. I wrapped my exhaust pipe and the airline in heat tape, but time will tell if that will be enough. Also, my truck is 100% stock so the issues are not due to prior modifications.

For the ABS brake wire, I would use a zip tie to maneuver it out of the way of that bolt you mention. My contact at Airlift assured me that the heat shield will protect the air bags and air lines within 1 inch of the exhaust. I would route the air line as far as possible away, securing with zip ties.

After a year of hard use this product has held up really well. My only regret is not buying it sooner. For my application 2013 Ford F150, wrapping the exhaust in a heat shielding tape is a must.

Review from a similar LoadLifter 5000 Ultimate in Vehicle Suspension

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.

Review from a similar LoadLifter 5000 Ultimate in Vehicle Suspension

The air bags do their job well and would be great for someone who caries the same load all the time or doesn't carry a load often these would be great. I have different loads on my trailer or I'm empty multiple times per day, I definitely recommend buying the setup with an air compressor and remote.

Im amazed that they havent popped. I definitely put these air bad through more torture than they were intended for. It does seem like they dont lift as well after a few years.

Review from a similar LoadLifter 5000 Ultimate in Vehicle Suspension

This bag system works exactly as advertised. Without an onboard compressor or gauge, I would only rate it as 4/5 stars, but it is quite a price jump to get the compressor. I have had a similar system with the onboard compressor and will likely upgrade to this in the future.

I have upgraded to a compressor system, and still love the product.

Review from a similar LoadLifter 5000 Ultimate in Vehicle Suspension

I ordered this airbag kit for my '99 Chevy Silverado k1500 after I bought a tongue heavy toy hauler (within my vehicle and hitch maximums.) The installation was straightforward, and was completed in a leisurely afternoon. The only part I feel was missing was a T for the airlines, as it makes more sense to have a single valve versus two from both an installation and operation standpoint.

I do not tow enough to need a compressor, and have been plenty happy with my operation thus far. I have been running 55 psi towing, and it has changed the entire dynamic for the better. Of course this does not change my maximum tongue weight or towing capacity; but it does level my truck and keeps the steering geometry where it should be. Towing without the bags was a jittery and stressful experience. With the bags, the truck feels and drives with much more confidence, enough that I can drive with one hand on the freeway.

I read a ton of information regarding the mixing of bags and load leveling hitches, and in my research, as long as the hitch is still generating 3+ inches of drop to load the bars, you will retain all of the benefits of the hitch action. I am accomplishing that drop at 55psi with my setup. I air up, hitch, and end up completely level once everything is loaded. As always, don't overload your vehicle, and drive defensively.


Review from a similar LoadLifter 5000 Ultimate in Vehicle Suspension

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.
