Specs:

  • Load-leveling capacity: up to 5,000 lbs
    • LoadLifter 5000 Ultimate Plus 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

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.


Durable, Rustproof Stainless Steel Components

This LoadLifter 5000 Ultimate Plus air spring kit has rustproof stainless steel components that offer long-lasting durability. These components are the roll plates, braided air lines, and air spring attachment hardware.

Roll plates on Air Lift 5000 Ultimate air spring

The roll plates protect the air springs from damage 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.


The stainless steel air lines are tougher than nylon airlines and last a lot longer. They offer extra protection against damage caused by sharp edges and flying road debris.


And the air spring attachment hardware provides excellent corrosion resistance.


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 Plus 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 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 Plus 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 Plus 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.


Installation

This system has no-drill, bolt-on installation 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). Any air line excess must be coiled up and secured out of the way, so it won't get damaged. The air line cannot be cut or trimmed. And the valves 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.

Video Transcript for Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Ultimate Plus Rear Axle Air Springs Review

Today you're going to be taking a look at the Airlift LoadLifter 5000 Ultimate Plus line of air helper springs. As you can see, once we add our load to the back of the bed of the truck, we have a significant squat in the back, which is actually going to raise up the front end. That's going to cause a lot of different problems. The back end, we're putting a lot of strain and stress on the suspension. We're not going to have as much travel, as we normally do. Then, on the front, it's actually pulling the front end up, causing a teetering effect, so our headlights are misaligned, our tires are not making as much contact as they should, which is going to diminish our steering and braking.Here's what our airbag looks like, once we have it installed.

It's going to fit in between the frame and the axle, and provide us the support we need, whenever we have a heavy load, like a trailer, fifth wheel, gooseneck, or a heavy load in the bed. Now, with our airbags installed, we actually got our truck back to where it should be with only 40 psi. The back end is not sagging down, as much, and it's being supported a lot better.And on the front, the front is right back where it should be. Our headlights and the front is right back where it should be also. The headlights are going to be aligned and our tires are going to have a good contact on the ground, so we're going to have better steering and braking.Our airbags are designed to replace our factory jounce stop and, as you can see, they are quite a bit bigger, and they're going to provide us a lot more support, rather than the factory jounce stop just preventing it from bottoming out.

Our springs are going to have the best of both worlds though. We're going to have the adjustability of the airbags, but they're also going to have an internal jounce bumper, so it's going to prevent any kind of bottoming out, if we have low or no air in the bags.The internal jounce bumper is going to be urethane, so it's not going to require any kind of maintenance, once we have them installed. The airbag assembly, itself, is going to be a two-ply reinforced rubber, so it's going to have extra durability to it. Our airbags are going to have stainless steel roll plates, as well as, hardware, and the brackets are going to be steel with a black powder coat finish to help resist rust and corrosion.One thing that's going to set our kit apart is that they're going to give us these stainless steel braided lines. These are going to be a lot more durable than the nylon lines that normally come with most airbags.

The nice thing about our airbags is that they are going to be compatible with most goosenecks and fifth wheels, because of how our bracket is going to mount to the frame. Our airbags are designed to support up to 5,000 pounds, and they're going to have an operating air range between five psi and all the way up to 100 psi.Now, keep in mind, these are not designed to increase the payload of your truck. They're really just designed to help support that extra load. Our airbags are going to come with a manual inflation valve. That way, we can inflate our bags easily, wherever we decide to mount it.

Now, it can be Y'ed off into one, so you can connect both bags at the same time, or you can have two separate inflation valves, so you can control side-to-side for those off-center loads.There is an option to where we can adjust the pressure without ever having to get out of the cab. That's going to be with a compressor kit that is sold separately. That will finish up your look at the Airlift LoadLifter 5000 Ultimate Plus line of air helper springs.

These Airlift 5000 Airbags are EVERYTHING they are advertised to be! Ordered them from etrailer and they were here is 5 days with no shipping charge. Price was the same as I would've paid through that big box website but the personalized service I received from Brenden really made the difference. Thanks Bud! I chose to have my local repair shop install them only because I didn't want to take the time to do it myself. I have a 2016 Ram Crew Cab and I haul a 7' X 16' enclosed cargo trailer. I tried to utilize a weight distributing hitch to take care of the rear sag but there was just not enough ground clearance for the torsion bars. Some suggested airbags instead and WOW...what a difference. I can't believe how much better the truck rides even with no load on the truck. Should have bought these a LONG time ago! 657039

About a year ago, I installed this on my 2013 Ram 1500 with the hemi. I pull an enclosed 6x12 trailer with my tools and equipment in it. The trailer has a heavy tongue weight and is driven in city traffic every day. This kit has saved my front tires from wearing any more than they did as well as how easy it is to adjust the height of the truck based on my current load. I recommend it. 295497

I have had the air bags installed for over a year now. From the boat ramp, camper and dump trailer these things just work GREAT. I will add a set of these to every truck i owe from now on! So nice to be able to level you truck out regardless it being a large or small load. They truly give your truck a safer ride when towing! 526431

The addition of the Air Lift is by far something I should have done years ago. I was short in time so I had my local Midas shop install them. They work so well. I only needed 20 lbs. of pressure to level the truck and trailer. On the road, the trailer rode better, braking felt better, and the up and down motion I disliked going over bumps is gone. Awesome product for safety while towing. 568497

Have had the air bags installed for 3-4 weeks now. Love them! Huge difference in ride quality when hauling or towing heavy loads. My only criticism is in the design. The left side fit perfect and the bag is perfectly aligned vertically but the right side bag is canted slightly. Almost as if the bottom brackets holes are drilled slightly off. I called the company and was told that up to 15 degrees is acceptable. It just looks as though the bag may wear more but time will tell I guess. I would still recommend. Also looking at purchasing the compressor system to ensure the bags always have adequate pressure. 421216

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

Installed this kit a month ago and used it three times pulling my travel trailer. Works as described and has performed as I expected it to. I have a GMC 1500 and no matter if I have my travel trailer with a 600lb tongue weight or 6'x10' single axle trailer with a 160lb tongue weight, with load of course, my truck would squat in the back. I already added a sway control/weight distribution system and now wanted to get my truck in the right configuration while pulling. For safety and performance. After reading a lot of reviews I chose this kit. This kit was easy to install but did take 3 or 4 hours. I wasn't in a rush and wanted to make sure I followed everything in the instructions and not miss anything. I didn't want to rush through it to miss a critical step and then lose brake fluid due to a hole in a brake line. Mainly didn't want to break anything important nor did I want to puncture the air lifts or the poly lines. Kit went on as expected and fit perfectly. The instructions included pictures and examples to follow that illustrate how everything fits and where everything should be routed. I would definitely buy again. 589432

This was an airbag install that took me about 4 hours. I did this in my garage with a minimum of tools. I did end up about an inch higher bed height even with empty airbags and no weight on the vehicle but this may come down with use. The shipping from etrailer was fast and the sales agents have firm grasp of their products and installation procedures. I can always get a straight answer from them. I also ordered the curt under bed gooseneck hitch. This took me about 8 hours to install but I was in no hurry and wanted it done right. Thanks etrailer for great service. 491845

One year later I still like these airbags.My truck rides level and handles smoothly. Without a load, however, its stiff in back and bounces, even with the airbags deflated.

The product was delivered in a perfect condition and as scheduled. Very simple installation for 2016 Ford F150. The Ride with 5 lbs is better than the factory ride. I thought it would be a rough based on what others said. The rear height did get raised by 1/2" at 5 lbs. With a good bicycle pump it took 4 pumps to get to 20 lbs., that's much better than getting out the the compressor. 485152

Previously installed Firestone air helper springs in my Ford F250. Wish I would have ordered them instead of the Air Lift helper springs. While quality of Air Lift appears to be good, installation compared to installing the Firestone system is a real bear. Firestone easily as good quality and much simpler/easier to install. 99455

I haul a 8' truck camper that pops up, it has a app. 1400 # weight to it. I also pull a 17' Lund boat that is loaded with my 2011 Dodge 1500. When I first put the truck camper on the truck before installation of the air bags, my truck squatted 6", basically it bottomed out. But when I put the air bags on, WOW, what a difference it made. Now when I travel down the road, there is no more swaying, or bouncing like it use to do on my Chevey that I use to haul it all with without any air bags. But now I see Dodge these are put on all their trucks. I am SO HAPPY I purchased these, & would recommend them to anyone. I told my neighbor about them & he put a set on his F2500, to pull his 31' 5th wheel, & he loves them. I was 65yrs. young when I purchased & installed these Air Bags, & was a welder for 45yrs.. nut if you have any doubts weather you can put them on. Well relax the video that shows you how to put them on when you purchased them makes it a breeze. I hope this easess your mind if you are in doubt about making the purchase. And the price I believe was more than fare. Good Luck to All, And May GOD RICHLY BLESS ALL WHO CALL ON HIS NAME. 345917

The product arrive in a timely matter as with everything that I have purchased from e-trailer , the only problem I had was there were some lock nuts missing from the package , 2 pouches were opened when I opened the box , [ this was from the factory not e-trailer fought ] the photo's in the installation booklet could have been a little clearer , my truck has sway bars and none of the photo's showed them that I could see and the installation book didn't talk about them , Had to figure it out on my own . Other than that no problems , took about 4 hours to install , a 4 point drive on lift would be a great help , also remove the spare tire , it helps 513733

I ordered the Air Lift 5000 from etrailer and I was very pleased with doing business with them. I normally order parts from someplace else but I will be using etrailer for all my future needs. The part was delivered on time and etrailer helped me make the right choice for my needs. Helpful, knowledgeable, timely, and provided the right part for the job; 5 stars from me for that. Now onto the Air Lift 5000. I was amazed at how detailed the instructions were. They made it extremely easy to follow the instructions while building the assemblies. Probably one of the easiest part assemblies I have ever put on a truck and definitely the most detailed instructions I have ever seen. Everything bolted directly to stock mounts on the frame and no drilling was required. After getting everything mounted to the truck and installing the air lines, I was a little skeptical about the air line connections and I was afraid of leaks. I filled both air lines to 60 PSI after the install and when I checked the pressure this morning, I was still at 60 PSI. The last thing I will cover is the ride. I have not towed my trailer yet but I am excited for when I do. I dropped the air pressure to 7 PSI this morning and took a 30 mile drive. The difference this part has made is unbelievable. It still rides like a truck but it is much stiffer in the back now when driving on rough roads which adds a huge difference to the ride quality. I can only imagine the difference I will experience when towing my 12k trailer. Overall, I could not be more happy with my purchase. etrailer has 5 star customer service and they sold me a 5 star part. 484223

Came well packaged, all itsy bitsy parts accounted for. Says no drilling required but you will need a cutting wheel or hacksaw to cut a bolt off. Instructions are pretty good but pictures sometimes don't show exactly what you need to know. My favorite part 2 hrs install. We all know that means at least 4. One more hour and I'll be finished. 426268

Finished the install last weekend fairly smoothly. I jacked up one side of the truck at a time since I only had one jack. Had to put the jack on cinder blocks to get it high enough to engage the leaf spring front mount. One comment/suggestion for the installation guide. The only thing I struggled with was the parking brake cable. It was exactly in the way of engaging the bottom bracket to the axle. No matter how I moved the bracket it would not clear the cable. Then the light came on, release the brake dummy! Once the brake was released there was plenty of room to engage the assembly onto the axle. Of course, I did put some chalks on the front tires to keep the truck from rolling while I was underneath... No leaks, and it seems to ride much smoother than before. Thanks for a great product, 104826


Comments

I still like the product but it seems to have a slow leak somewhere and will not hold air pressure for a week at the original setting. Guess I need to do a bubble leak test, just have not gotten to it. Other than that the product is great.

Fast shipping and excellent customer service. Will continue to purchase from etrailer. Took about 8 hrs to install the kit. I'm sure that would have been faster for someone who has done it before but I took my time. The air bags work just as I wanted and the kit appears to be high quality materials. If you purchase a kit take your time installing as it's best to fit and refit a couple times on parts of the kit to ensure everything is going as laid out by the instructions. 72041

This Loadlifter worked excellent. Put a Lance camper at 2600 lbs. on my Ford F350 crewcab pickup. Despite the camper package option on my truck with extra rear leaf springs, it still pushed the bed end down and the hood side up in the air. Annoying side to side roll as well. The AirLift LoadLifter had very good instructions and was not difficult to install. Drilled five holes in the frame on each side to attach. Plenty of part options to make it a very good fit. Aired up the springs until the camper was perfectly level. Truck now drives level and considerably less side to side roll. This was well worth the price for the performance. 53242

The air lift for my 04 ford Excursion has worked great pulling my RV camper. It has made a great ride to enjoy traveling. Very easy to install. Will buy again as I am a very satified customer. 572513

I had this installed by my mechanic, he said no problems, basically just bolted in. I went to pick up my 30' travel trailer and I adjusted the pressure to 20psi before I hooked it up. Before the air springs there was a noticeable sag in the back of the truck with the trailer hitched. With just 20psi in the bags there was barely any sag at all, and the trailer pulled much better. Planning on a trip this weekend and I'll probably increase the pressure up to 30psi to see how that works. Very happy with this product, I wish I would have bought it years ago. 256010

Greetings ...... Very detailed directions enclosed with product. Air lift kit is doing exactly what I needed to have done , raising rear bumper of my '06 F150 to tow RV to prevent sagging and sway. Was considering air shocks, until air lift kit appeared on my radar. 496910

The air bags went in great, and pretty easy. I did not like the recommended location for the air valves. So I put them through the body panels to have them inside the back doors. They work great like that. I just put in a 7/16” grommet in the panel to run the air line through the outside panel. Works great and easy to fill with air. 544314

Quality of the air helper springs appears good. The installation instructions were good and the parts fit as intended. The Air lift Controller One Compressor works well and quickly inflats the air bags. In fact the compressor only needs to run about 15 seconds to fully inflate the springs when they are under no load. I have made several purchases from etrailer and have been very satisified each time. Keep up the good work! 37698

Straight forward install. Allow 6+/- hours to get it right. DO read the instructions. Measure the clear height first and get the optional lift blocks if even close to 7" 338388


Comments

Product works very well. My F250 had the camper package with added helper spring. That increased the spacing and thus the need for the lift blocks. Before the blocks, I was breaking the air fitting off of the top of the bags. Air-Ride was awesome. Replaced the bags and sent additional fittings. I put a T in so they would inflate at the same pressure consistently.

First thing is e-trailer the best to buy from , hands down! Air lift 5000 not a great kit in my opinion . This is not my first air bag install , over 12 so far. Brackets look good , bags fit them good and hardware is ok. The problem is the upper bracket is 3/4k inch short of sitting against frame . Jounce cup is in the way , I tried to mock it up in place but hardware is to short . Jounce cup had to be removed for bracket to fit up to frame , it's welded on . This kit is not what I would average to install . I'll try a different manufacturer next time. 2009 chevy 1500 4x4 crew cab . 176164

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

Nice product and installation was pretty simple/straight forward. Had a fit issue with left side lower bag bracket sitting to tight to brake line mount on axle for me. Cut ear on mount and moved over .25" and got a good positive clearance. Happy with the product and put over 700 miles on towing the week after installation. 653526

Review from a similar Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 in Vehicle Suspension


Worked perfect. The only complaint I would have is, I never received the little wire to thread the bolt through. A little duct tape on a piece of wire did the same thing. Another issue was on the jounce bumper - the framework of it, I had to grind a little of it away for the air fitting to cleanly swivel. If I did not, the air swivel was "a little snug". It didn't take much either to fix it. Total install time, doing it by myself around 5 hours. By the picture, you can see where I ground it away. Again - did not have to grind that much, but wanted to be sure. 647862

Very hard to install, but once in place has worked very well. It is just what we needed once we added a heavier camper shell and slideout deck. 647779

High quality and heavy duty. Good instructions as well. Just got them installed yesterday on my 2009 F-150 crew cab with 6.5' box. I also have the B&W turnover gooseneck ball hitch and my main concern was still being able to mount these. Fit like a charm, no interference at all. I wish I would have purchased them sooner. Sometimes we haul loads that might be just a bit heavy for an F-150, but we are careful. These will certainly help. I have similar air bag type suspensions install on our other two work trucks and I love them. What I did was got myself a 1/4" compression tee and plumbed both air bags into one valve. That way, they air up evenly. It comes with everything to air up each bag separately but I prefer them to be the same. They cost about $6 at any hardware store. I mounted the single air fill valve near the drivers tail light inside the box facing forward. There is an opening where the tail light harness runs up and I followed that with the air valve. I drilled a hole and snaked a tie wire down and through some finagling I managed to get the valve out the hole and mounted. Looks good and is out of the way. Install took me about 5 hours from tools out to tools away, but I was not in a big hurry. I aired them up to 70 psi and drove home looking like a hot rod with the back kicked up. Checked the air pressure this morning and all is well. No leaks as far as I can tell. Highly recommended and a great price as well. 643462

  • Recommended Air Lift Rear Suspension System Compatible with 2016 Ram 1500
  • Your air spring bags 5813 are not a fit for your 2016 Ram 1500. I recommend the Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Air Helper Springs - Rear Axle # AL57370.

  • Maximum Truck Camper Weight for 2016 Ram Big Horn and Recommend Suspension Enhancement
  • In order to determine how heavy of a truck camper your 2016 Ram 1500 Big Horn can support you will need to calculate its payload capacity. The most accurate method for doing this is to locate the truck's GVWR that should be printed on a sticker affixed to the driver's side door jamb. Then take your truck up to a local commercial weight station. If possible take any passengers that would normally come along on trips and any cargo items that you would be carrying in the truck.
