5,000-lb Capacity. LoadLifter 5000 Ultimate air springs have internal bumpers, so you get the adjustable load support of air springs and the comfort and reliability of jounce springs. Jounces also work as a fail-safe if air springs lose pressure.


Features:

  • Hybrid spring system combines the adjustability of air springs with the reliability of jounce-style springs
  • Air bags reduce the strain on your rear suspension, increase safety, and compensate for uneven loads
    • Level your vehicle front to back and help maintain safe headlight aim
    • Adjust independently for side-to-side leveling of off-center loads
    • Improve steering and braking performance
  • Jounce spring inside each air spring helps to improve ride comfort, reduce sway, and help with cornering
    • Engages at lower air pressures to better absorb road shock and minimize bottoming out
    • Provides support progressively - the more you load the springs, the stiffer they become
    • Lets you temporarily carry a load with zero air pressure in your springs
  • Quality construction for long-lasting spring life
    • 2-Ply, fabric-reinforced rubber air springs are durable
    • Air Lift's exclusive upper and lower roll plates protect air springs from damage, extending the life of the suspension system
    • High-strength Zytel nylon endcaps are lighter, stronger, and more corrosion resistant than steel
    • Urethane internal jounces require no maintenance and work well in hot or cold temperatures
  • Designed for heavy-duty applications such as 1/2-ton, 3/4-ton, and 1-ton pickup trucks
  • Mounting brackets and hardware are included for installation
  • Manual inflation valves and air lines are included
    • Manual valves are typically mounted on bumper for easy access
    • Compressor system with in-cab gauges (sold separately) can be added to monitor and automatically adjust air pressure
  • Made in the USA


Specs:

  • Load-leveling capacity: up to 5,000 lbs
    • LoadLifter 5000 Ultimate springs will not increase your vehicle's weight-carrying capacity. Do not exceed the manufacturer's recommended weight limit.
  • Adjustable air pressure: 5 psi - 100 psi
  • Lifetime warranty
  • 60-Day satisfaction guarantee


Note: When servicing your truck with Air Lift air springs installed, if the truck is lifted by the frame, the air must be let out of the springs. And if the rear of the truck is lifted during service, then it must be supported by jack stands to avoid damage to the air springs.


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 1/2-ton, 3/4-ton, or 1-ton pickup 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 (one 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.

I received the product in a timely fashion. I had a diesel mechanic shop near by install them, he is the one that recommended this product and your company to me initially. He had installed this product on all three of his Dodges, 1500 & 3500 and had been extremely pleased with there performance. It did take him a little longer to get them installed (he has only installed them on his own Dodges, and mine is a Ford) but he said that they went on as advertised. I really like the remote feature and we are going to pull our 39' travel trailer this weekend so i will have a better feel for them after this weekend, but so far I am completely satisfied with the product and with the service from etrailer. 849996

Installation went well. Product works well. Clamps for the heat shield were not adequate. They are not big enough if you have a diesel. The muffler runs the closest to the rubber and the clamps should be bigger. I think I Aligned top and bottom of mounts good enough, but it did take me awhile. Everything works, haven’t put load on it yet. 2018 F250 diesel 808907

Can’t say enough good things about etrailer.com, it’s professional and courteous staff and the quality products they carry. This is the second pair of Air Lift Ultra 5000s and associate hardware (extra hose kit and t-fittings). I normally call sales when I order just to make sure the product(s) I’m ordering are in stock and especially if I have a lower price compare, it seems to expedite processing and delivery. Special thanks to Tammie (Sales) and Sarah (Customer Service) for their over-and-above assistances and quick processing. My order was on the way immediately and received in great shape in 3 days. Definitely a satisfied customer! 667525

I haven't tested the air bags thoroughly but they seem to be working as designed. Install was pretty easy. The air bags and compressor kit should all me to better manage the weight of our fifth wheel with or F250. E-trailer is an awesome company to deal with. The ship fast and follow up on orders. Their website is chock full of useful videos and suggestions. 656931

Ordered and received in two days! Installed today. Took 5 hours which is not bad for a 62 year old with two arthritic shoulders and a bad back. Instruction were followed. I did wrap the carriage bolts on right side to protect the brake line. Will test with RV attached to see how my truck rides. 617903


Comments
Over 7K pulling 18K 5th wheel since installing. Both truck & trailer have handled well, especially on the bad section of I-40 between Memphis and east of Nashville. Every truck pulling a trailer needs Air Lift LoadLifters.

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

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

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

Review from a similar LoadLifter 5000 Ultimate in Vehicle Suspension


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

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

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.

If you have the two wheel drive (2WD) version then you will want to use part # AL88391 but if you have the four wheel drive (4WD) version then you will want to use part # AL88399. Both of the above systems will work well with the Air Lift QuickShot Compressor System for Air Springs part # AL25572.

  • Will the Air Lift Air Bags for a 2018 Ford F-350 Work with a 5th Wheel Hitch
    Yes, the Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Ultimate Air Helper Springs part # AL88399 will fit your 2018 Ford F-350 with most above bed base rails. The reason for this is because the air springs install underneath the frame rails whereas the brackets for most base rails install on the side of the frame. Please keep in mind that this kit is for four wheel drive models. If you will be towing frequently then I recommend adding a compressor kit like the Air Lift Load Controller Compressor System...

  • Missing Lower Bolt Hole On Lower Bracket for Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 AL88399 On a 2019 Ford F-450
    It sounds like you have the old version of the Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Ultimate Air Helper Springs with Internal Jounce Bumpers part # AL88399 which only has two holes on the lower bracket instead of the one you need with three holes. If you used our site for the fit info and then purchased elsewhere you could very well run into this issue as other manufacturers will keep old stock and may not be aware of this issue but I can confirm if you order from us, you will receive the new lower...

  • Does Air Lift LoadLifter AL88399 Fit Single or Dual Wheel 2017 Ford F-350 Trucks
    The Air Lift LoadLifter system # AL88399 is designed to fit the 2017 Ford F-350 4x4 single wheel or dually applications. So as long as your truck is a 4x4 it will fit. If it is a 2-wheel drive model there isn't an air spring kit available just yet.

  • Can I Use Airbag on a 2019 Ford F-250 with the Factory Prep Package
    The only airbag kit we have that will fit your 2019 Ford F-250 is the Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Air Helper Springs part # AL57399 for standard or part # AL88399 for ultimate. The ultimate version has an internal jounce spring which lets you temporarily carry a load with zero air pressure in your springs. The Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs part # F2600 will not work for you because the airbag installs on the outside of the frame rail which is currently occupied by the factory...

  • What is the Difference Between AirLift Ultimate and AirLift Ultimate Plus System for 2017 Ford F-250
    The AirLift LoadLifter 5000 Ultimate Plus # AL89399 are a great choice since they have stainless steel components that will do a great job at resisting corrosion, which is extremely important in a system that will see a lot of road grime and moisture. These stainless steel components will be the only difference between the # AL89399 and the # AL88399 system.

  • What Air Bag System Should I Use on my 2020 Ford F-250 with Factory Prep Package?
    Because you have the factory prep package on your 2020 Ford F-250 you'll need an airbag system that installs under the frame rail as opposed to outside of it, where the factory prep package would interfere with it. For that reason I recommend going with the Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Air Helper Springs # AL57399 (standard) or the Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Ultimate Air Helper Springs # AL88399 (ultimate). The Ultimate version has an internal jounce bumper that will allow you to temporarily...
