Expert Answers about Air Lift

  • Recommended Air Compressor and Tank Kit To Allow Air Bag Inflation and Ability to Air Vehicle Tires
  • I have a solution for you, but the Air Lift WirelessAIR Compressor System # AL72000 is not designed to be used with an air tank. I spoke with my contact at Air Lift and he confirmed that the # AL72000 will not work with an air tank. We have several options for air compressors and tanks that will work great for what you are wanting to do. I recommend the Firestone Air Command II, Analog, Heavy Duty Compressor with Air Tank and 25 Foot Hose # F2549. This kit will provide you with all...

  • Troubleshooting AirLIft Wireless Controller with Error Message
  • The Air Lift Wireless AIR Compressor System # AL72000 will show an error whenever there is any type of issue with the system. Generally this is an issue with the remote communicating with the system, a blockage, or a leak. I would inspect the compressor system and all of the air lines to make sure there are no issues. You can check for leaks using soap and water. If you find a leak disconnect the hose and make sure the tubing is cut as square as possible. If you find a block you'll...

  • Recommended Rear Axle Air Bag Kit for 2017 Ford F-250 Towing 5th Wheel Trailer
  • A rear-axle air bag kit in a truck like a 2017 Ford F-250 can certainly help deal with rear suspension compression from the pin weight of a 5th wheel trailer. Air bag kits can be equipped with on-board compressors that eliminate having to manually inflate the air bags to find the correct pressure for the trailer's pin weight. Being able to do this from the comfort of the truck cab while you're able to feel the results can make life much easier. All rear axle air bag kits for your truck...

  • How To Pair an Air Lift WirelessAIR Remote to Compressor
  • In the settings mode of the controller you can join the manifolds with the controller. To set the manifold into join mode locate the yellow join wire. It is the yellow wire with heat shrink on the end of it. Remove the cap leaving it attached to the harness. Attach the exposed terminal to a good frame ground. Now the manifold will boot into join mode and will click the exhaust solenoid 5 times fast then one per second. The manifold will stay in join mode for 30 seconds. On the controller...

  • What is the Minimum and Maximum Air Pressure for AirLift Air Bag Kit # AL88299
  • No, the minimum air pressure is 5 psi and the maximum is 100 psi. The 40 figure comes into play based off of the instructions which state that generally the system can support 40 pounds per 1 psi of air pressure. I have linked the installation instructions for Air Lift kit # AL88299.

  • Troubleshooting BL-OC Code on Wireless Air Lift Compressor Kit
  • Sounds like you have an Air Lift compressor that is not working and is giving you the BL-OC code. This can mean two different things. It can mean the relay is bad or it can mean the manifold is bad. If you can track down a GM style relay that most vehicles use you can try swapping one with the relay of the compressor to easily rule that out. Most likely that is what it is though. Or you can test to see if the relay is bad. There will be a 4-pin connector plugged into the manifold. With...

  • Rear Air Bag Helper Springs for a 2017 Ram 1500 4x4
  • Yes, the Air Lift air springs # AL60818 will fit your 2017 Ram 1500 4x4. A lot of people have complained about the use of coil springs on the newer Rams but adding some additional support like these springs will help with the ride quality for sure. I have linked a video showing an example installation for you.

  • Finding and Fixing Leaks in an Air Lift Helper Spring System
  • First, I have included a link to the installation instructions to the right for Air Lift kit # AL88299 for you. Using soapy water is the best way to find a leak in an air system. If it is leaking at a hose or fitting then replacing that hose or fitting would fix the problem. However if it is a bag that is leaking then you would need to replace the bag. Using the instructions you can reverse the installation process. When cutting air lines the cut needs to be as straight as possible....

  • High Capacity Suspension Enhancement for a 2012 Dodge Ram 1500
  • The frame and suspension is different between the 1500 and 2500 series 2012 Dodge Ram so the parts are not interchangeable. But if you want the most capacity for a 1500, take a look at the Timbren springs # TDRTT1500. These guys are rated for 7,000 pounds and would be ideal for beefing up your suspension. The Timbren springs will provide leveling support independently of each other, increase stability and ride quality, and reduce side to side body roll. I have included a link to an...

  • Airbag Kit that Will Work With a B&W Gooseneck Hitch on a 2017 Ford F-150
  • The only set of airbags that we have for your 2017 Ford F-150 that will also work with the B&W Turnoverball Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch w/ Custom Installation Kit part # BWGNRK1115 is the Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Air Helper Springs part # AL57284. All other airbag kits we have for your truck mount to the outside of the frame rail which interferes with the B&W Gooseneck Hitch.

  • Recommended Airbag Suspension for 5th Wheel on 2015 F150 XLT Supercab with 6.5 Foot Bed
  • For your 2015 Ford F-150 XLT Supercab, the Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Air Helper Springs - Rear Axle # AL57284 or the Airlift LoadLifter 5000 with Internal Jounce Bumpers # AL88284 for increased safety are a great option that will work with your truck and trailer combination. Both of these options will adjust from 5 psi to 100 psi to remove sag and level your truck.

  • Recommended Air Springs for Load Leveling on a 2018 Ram 1500
  • Air Bags are the best at load leveling and we do have confirmed fits for your 2018 Ram 1500 as long as you don't have the factory air suspension system. I recommend the Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Air Helper Springs # AL57370 which are compatible with in-bed hitches if you decide to add a gooseneck or 5th wheel hitch. These will not only level your ride, but will also reduce the strain on your OEM suspension and improve the overall quality and stability of your ride. This kit comes with...

  • Rear Axle Air Bag Kit for 2017 Ford F-250 Diesel 4X4 with Factory 5th Wheel Prep
  • According to my contact at Firestone, their rear axle air bag kit F2535 is not a fit for your 2017 Ford F-250 diesel 4X4 but we do have options. Air Lift offers a confirmed fit in a 5th-wheel-compatible rear air bag kit, part # AL57399, which provides 5000-lbs of load support capacity. They also offer a version with internal jounce bumpers, which help support your suspension in the unlikely event of an air leak, part # AL88399.

  • Circuit Suggestion for Tapping Fuse for Install of Air Lift WirelessONE Compressor System
  • I can only recommend you go with the same amperage rating as what is called for in the install instructions of the Air Lift WirelessONE Compressor System for Air Helper Springs # AL25870 that you are installing. Since you want to use a circuit that only sees voltage when the key is on the radio fuse is a common one that is used. You have to go with the same voltage though as too high may cause damage to the compressor and too low would cause the fuse to blow all the time. I attached...

  • Parts Needed to Inflate Tires with Air Lift Load Controller Compressor for Air Helper Springs
  • The Air Lift Load Controller II Compressor System for Air Helper Springs, # AL25812, is meant to keep air springs inflated, it wouldn't be a good product for inflating tires. To inflate tires, you'd want a compressor that's specifically designed for that purpose, like the Bulldog # BDW41000.

These Air Lift springs have a 5,000 lbs capacity and are designed to upgrade the rear suspension of you RV. For an air compression system, I recommend the Firestone Air Command F3 Compressor System w/ Wireless Remote and Heavy Duty Compressor, # F2590. This wireless compressor will allow you adjust the air bags independently or simultaneously....

  • Will the Air Lift Compressor Kit # AL25592 Work with the Firestone Ride-Rite Air Springs # F2245
  • You can certainly use the Air Lift Compressor Kit, # AL25592, with the Firestone Ride-Rite Air Springs, # F2245. I spoke with my contacts at Air Lift and Firestone to confirm that it would work. The Air Lift compressor kit and the Ride-Rite both use 1/4 inch air lines and fittings so they are compatible with each other. I have attached the installation instructions for the Air Lift compressor kit for you to check out. I would also recommend picking up the Air Lift Air Hose Cutter, #...

  • What is the Maximum Air Pressure for Air Lift 1,000 Pound Capacity Air Helper Springs
  • According to the instructions which I have linked for you for Air Lift suspension enhancement # AL60769, the maximum air pressure is 35 psi and the minimum is 5 psi. Over-inflation and under-inflation can damage the air bags so you will always want to stay within the 5 to 35 psi range.

  • Advantages and Disadvantages of Using a Single Path or Dual Path Compressor System for Air Springs
  • Your understanding of how the air in the bags will operate is correct. If both bags are on one valve the air will shift from one to the other while turning with a heavy load. However, if the load is distributed evenly it will also return to even once you straight out. So it isn't really an unsafe situation unless the load is much heavier on one side compared to the other. With dual valves if one bag was to lose air for some reason your ride would then be uneven. If the other bag...

  • Where to Mount the Air Lift Load Controller Compressor # AL25850 on a 2013 Ram 1500 Crew Cab
  • There should be room on the inboard side of the drivers side frame rail under the cab to mount the Air Lift Load Controller Compressor, # AL25850. We have not had a chance to install this compressor on a 2013 Ram 1500 yet, but we have installed the Firestone Level Command II Compressor, # F2158, on a 2012 Ram 1500. I attached the installation video for you to check out. I know Dodge made a few frame modifications on the 2013 models, but there should be room on the frame rail to mount...

  • Recommended Air Spring Kit For A 2016 Ford F-250
  • I have several options for you but none of which include both the air bag kit and the air compressor. Therefore, you will need to purchase an air bag kit specifically designed to fit your 2016 Ford F-250 in addition to an air compressor kit. The Air Lift LoadLifter 7500 XL Air Helper Springs part # AL57596 is a confirmed fit for you 2016 Ford F-250 with factory tow package. It is a complete bolt-on kit unless you decide to run the air lines to the rear of the vehicle instead of using...

  • Rear Helper Springs for 2002 Chevy Suburban 1500
  • I'm assuming you're looking for a suspension enhancement product for your 2002 Suburban. Your best option would depend on what you're using the Suburban for. If you're wanting the suspension product to counteract sag experienced when a trailer is hitched, you'd be better served by using a weight distribution system. If you'd care to reply with some more information about the trailer you're towing, and its fully loaded and ready to tow tongue weight (see link for ways to determine this),...

  • How To Replace Battery On Remote For Air Lift WirelessONE Compressor System # AL72704
  • I went to the warehouse and pulled one of the Remote for Air Lift WirelessONE Compressor System, part # AL72704. I have attached a photo of the remote you can check out. On each side of the remote in the areas with the red arrows, there is a small tab on the black plastic part of the remote. You will need a very thin screwdriver to press that and it should release the top and let you replace the battery.

  • Recommended Air Springs For 2015 Ford F-250 4WD Crew Cab With Service Body
  • For your 2015 F-250 Super Duty (including the 4WD, gas engine, crew cab, and service body), I recommend an air system for load leveling so your truck doesn't squat in the back like you are referring to. For air springs compatible with your truck, I recommend the Air Lift LoadLifter 7500 XL Air Helper Springs - Rear Axle # AL57596. These springs are one inch wider at 7 inches than the Load Lifter 5000 # AL57396. This system will improve your steering and braking performance by keeping...

  • Troubleshooting FAIL Message on Air Lift Wireless Compressor System Remote
  • I spoke with my contact at Air Lift regarding the "FAIL" error message you are getting on the Air Lift Wireless Remote # AL73002 for your compressor system. She stated that if the remote is still working fine to inflate the bags and check their pressures, the error code is likely resulting from a couple different possible causes. The first possible cause might simply be a loose ground connection on the system. I recommend checking to make sure that your ground is secure and then try...

  • Firestone Air Bag Suspension Kit Recommendation for 2018 Ford F350 4X4 DRW with Factory Hitch Prep
  • I have a better solution for you that we can guarantee will work. The Firestone air bags are considered by many to be superior to the Air Lift bags and we know for sure that the Firestone kit part # F2600 does fit the dual rear wheel 2018 Ford F-350 models with the factory in-bed hitch. So with this part number you'll get a better kit that is a confirmed fit without any guesswork.

  • Recommended No-Drill Airbag Kit for a 2000 Chevy Silverado 1500
  • I have the perfect set of airbags for your 2000 Chevy Silverado 1500 that will not require you drill into the frame for installation. Depending on where you choose to mount the inflation valves, you may need to drill two small 5/16" holes to run the lines to an access point outside the vehicle. I recommend using the Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Air Helper Springs part # AL57272 as this is the only true bolt-on airbag kit we have for your vehicle. The kit comes with everything needed for...

The reason for this is because the air springs install underneath the frame rails whereas the gooseneck hitch installs on the side of the frame rail. Please keep in mind that this kit is for four wheel drive models and will not work...

  • Air Bag Helper Springs for a 2018 Ford F-350 4x4 Dually
  • Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Ultimate Air Helper Springs # AL88399 will not fit dually models of the 2018 Ford F-350. If your truck had rear-wheel drive and not 4-wheel drive then you can use # AL88391. But since you do have a 4x4 you can use # F2600. Compressor systems # AL25854 and # AL25655 use different compressors and some different sub components. For your truck though I recommend # AL25854 since it has the heavy duty compressor.
