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 Ford Van) 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 Ford Van 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.

Video Transcript for Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Ultimate Air Helper Springs Review

Speaker 1: Today we'll be taking a look at the Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Ultimate Air Helper Springs with Internal Jounce Bumpers for the rear axle. See etrailer.com for your truck's fit.Now here's what our airbags look like installed. The reason you're gonna want airbags on your truck is because if you're towing a heavy trailer or have a heavy load in the bed of your truck you want to maintain your factory ride height. As we add weight to the back of the truck, the back will go down and the front end will come up, and this affects a few things. Number one, it affects our headlight angle. Our headlights are now facing more towards the sky and we could potentially blind oncoming drivers, and where they're not aimed down properly at the road like they should be.

Also, it'll take weight off the front end of the truck so we have less steering and handling capabilities. It'll also cause a little bit more front tire wear because the front tires now develop positive camber as the weight's taken off of them, so it'll cause more wear to the outside edge of your tires.Another side effect of this is as we take off the weight from our front tires, our front brakes are no longer capable of working at their peak efficiency because our front brakes do the majority of the braking on our truck. That's where our Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Ultimate Air Helper Springs come in. By pairing your existing suspension with LoadLifter 5000, you can bring your ride height back towards stock so you don't have to worry about your handling characteristics or your steering, or your braking abilities being affected when you're towing that heavy trailer or have a heavy load in the bed of your truck. This will make for a smoother and a safer ride.Now, what many of our customers like about these airbags compared to other ones on the market is that these have an internal jounce bumper inside.

So, even though we are replacing the factory bump stop, the jounce bumper inside here will still act like it for when we have full suspension travel, so we're not sagging down and having a very harsh ride when contact that. Now, these airbags are designed to work between air pressures of five and 100 PSI. The more air that you put in them, the more weight leveling capability that they have. They will support up to 5,000 pounds of weight, whether that be from a pin weight of gooseneck or a fifth wheel trailer, or having a large load in the bed of a truck. 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 a high quality two ply fabric reinforced rubber.

The airbags have Air Lift's exclusive roll plates, which protects the air springs and beef up their load capacity. These sturdy plates help guard the springs from moving parts under your vehicle that might come through the airbags. 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 lower air pressure, resulting in a better ride.Our customer, Kevin M., says, "This was a great addition in my 2011 Ford F250 King Ranch. Instructions we're clear, and installation was not too difficult.

Ride is very good whether pulling my fifth wheel trailer or not. I really like the internal jounces so that I can maintain minimal air pressure during normal driving."And, now we'll take our airbags out on our test course. On the left side of the screen, you'll notice the vehicle without the airbags installed. And on the right side of the screen, you'll notice the vehicle with the airbags installed. The first part of our test course, we'll be doing some evasive maneuvering, doing some quick turns and side to side. You'll notice how unstable and unsettled the suspension is without the airbags installed, and with them installed, you'll notice how much more settled and more control we have over the vehicle. There is less body roll than we had without them.And the next part of our test course, we'll be going over some bumps, and you'll notice without the airbags installed how much suspension travel we don't have. The suspension can't do its job properly because it's sagging down, and doesn't have the amount of travel that it needs in order to help absorb the bumps. With the airbags installed, you can see how much less jouncing and jarring there is going on. It's because the suspension is able to do its job properly with having the weight being supported by the airbags. This will give us much more handling and braking ability with the airbags installed, giving us the safety that we need when we're towing a heavy load or have a lot of weight in the back of our vehicle.And that completes our look at the Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Ultimate Air Helper Springs with Internal Jounce Bumpers for the rear axle.

Review from a similar Air Lift 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

I put these Air Helper Springs on a 2013 Ram 2500. Installation of the air bags took a little over two hours and was easy following the instructions. No drilling was requited. Just make sure you do not forget to complete a leak check and make sure to cut the airlines with a very sharp cutter. I purchased the Helper Springs to assist the truck springs and reduce sag when pulling our 17,000 Lb fifth wheel toy hauler with a 3,700 Lb tongue weight. I chose this part number because of the jounce bumper since they would prevent the springs from totally collapsing should total air loss occur. They do the job reducing the sag and increasing vehicle stability. Shout out to etrailer.com for excellent products at reasonable prices. 403133

Easy to install, easy to understand instructions. good fit and finish. I pull a 12K 5th wheel toy hauler and like my rig to stay level even when loaded. I've used Air lift on two of my trucks and upgraded this time to the bags with internal jounce bumpers because it seemed like a good idea. I just got back from a 240 mile trip and they worked perfectly. Makes a big difference when the road drops out and the 5th wheel comes down hard. No bottoming out and no bounce back. 232705

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

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

The product took a little bit to install, but once it was in it worked as expected. Originally I didn't buy a pump and found it was to much of a hassle to always try and get the air just right when wanting to tow as I needed my 5th wheel hitched up first. So I finally installed the compressor that I can control with the remote and this has made a big impact. The air bags help take out some of the bucking I was getting and it also helps level out the backend of the truck. It takes some time to get the right air pressure to your liking, but once you know the number, you can just set it each time. 255680

When I submitted my order, the confirmation email indicated the Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Ultimate were not in stock. Since I needed these installed before my next trip I contacted customer support. Katie who answered my call quickly rechecked the stock level, then placed me on hold while she called the supplier and arranged a drop shipment. This level of dedicated customer support will keep me coming back to etrailer. After my order was on the way I found the LoadLifer slightly cheaper. Submitted a price challenge and was quickly refunded the difference as advertised. 264272

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

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

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

Review from a similar Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Ultimate in Vehicle Suspension


After a year now still works perfectly. Only 2 down sides, First it has a slow leak (they were installed exactly as the instructions said). I put them on 90psi and about 6 months later they were between 20-40psi. Second, the hardware is rusted. The nuts that hold the air lines where you fill them are pretty bad and the bolts that hold the airbag plates are all rusted. I would definitely purchase them for my future vehicles, they hold the weight and easy to add/remover air. Still satisfied. 403981

Review from a similar Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Ultimate in Vehicle Suspension


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

This product is outstanding! I took just a little over 2 hours to install in my driveway using 2 x jack stands and a floor jack. Parts fit perfect and the instructions are clear and very well informed. It took less time to install the bags than it did to find line routes to steer clear of the exhaust and moving parts. I routed the lines to the license plate for discretion, making it easy and clean to adjust the ride height. I recommend this to anyone that tows. 496354

Well, after a year using my airlift 5000 I am happy to say that this unit is working great. I have towed my trailer with 2 polaris RZRs and fully loaded to Colorado without a problem. Without the airlift my truck would kind of sag but with the airlift , it looks as if the trailer was empty. Very happy with the product and would highly recommend them. The only issue I've had is that one of the tube fitting had come apart, but i have ordered new ones. 494360

I bought this kit along with the remote compressor for my Ram 3500. The product installs easily and looks like a factory installed option. The remote makes it easy for adding or removing air for ride adjustments. I was trying to eliminate chucking when pulling my 41 foot 5th wheel, the result is amazing! It has improved the ride so much without having to add anything else I will never be without this product on my truck. 250614

Install was easy! Fit right up now drilling. keep in mind that if you live in a cold environment, you may need air brake anti-freeze in the bags, I didn't catch this until after installation and it was a bit tougher to do after the fact. The directions to add the anti-freeze was actually in the Wireless Air Compressor instructions. All this went on my 2016 Ram 2500 Crew Cab 6' 4" bed. Overall, I am very pleased! 469528

Took me 5 hours, working by myself, but I'm 70 years old and it sure takes me longer to get under the van, work, and then get out. Did the drivers side first. Much harder than the passenger side. Had to move the brake line a little. Had to loosen up he exhaust system part of the way to be able to drill into the side of the frame. The passenger side took 1/3 as long. Good quality parts. 241911

I am pleased with the product. I do believe I have a small air leak somewhere but I have not taken the time to find it. We just bought a 32 ft 5th wheel so I believe the air bags will come in handy while pulling it. Service from etrailer was excellent as always. They did a match on the price which was good also. If I need something for my trailers I always check with them first. 406756

Installed the AL88200 last year on my 2014 F-150 and its made a major difference in the ride quality while towing! Doesn't matter if i am towing an enclosed trailer with the ATV's or my Fifth wheel camper, the springs allow me to set the level just right and confidently tow over the bumps of the road.

Installed these air bags in my 2010 Tundra, installation was pretty easy. The only negative with this kit would be the top u shaped clamp bars, the metal is too thin and bend down easily when torqued down. Keep in mind, I’ve only had them installed for a day now. Other then that one flaw, I’m happy with the kit. 468398

Great product, air bag installation was easy, but where to put the compressor was difficult. Ended up mounting it next to the evaporator next to the fuel tank. had to make a plate to mount it to. 277314

The Air Lift Loadlifter is still working great. I recommend them to anyone who carries heavy loads or pulls a travel trailer, which is why I purchased them.

The Air Lifts I purchased were for my 2015 Ford Super Duty, and they worked great. Ive since traded that truck in on a 2017 F-350 DRW Super Duty that has been engineered so that the springs are set in stages. This new 2017 doesnt need the Air Lifts, but if it ever did, that is what I would purchase.

  • What Suspension Enhancement Kit for 2016 Ford E-350 Does the Best to Fight Sway
  • Actually the best suspension enhancement we can offer for your 2016 Ford E-350 for curbing sway would be the SuperSprings part # SSA34. Of all the suspension enhancement kits we offer this is the style that fights sway the best. A coworker of mine installed these on his vehicle and he said it made it handle much better and got rid of all of the body roll he once had. This kit is confirmed as a fit for your vehicle and would work well.
