Do Air Lift Air Bags Require Spacers for a Lifted 2017 Ford F-250?  


Are lift spacers required for Air Lift airbags on a lifted 2017 Ford F-250?


Expert Reply:

If you have a lifted 2017 Ford F-250, you will need spacers with Air Lift airbags like the Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Ultimate Plus Air Springs w/ Internal Bumpers # AL89399 (4-wheel drive) or the Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Air Helper Springs - Rear Axle # AL57391 (2-wheel drive).

I went ahead and attached a diagram of how you determine what spacers to use with your truck. You will need to measure the distance between the upper and lower brackets and subtract the height of the air spring you're going to be install. Once you have that difference, you will be able to determine what spacers you need. Here are the following spacers available for the LoadLifter 5000 model air bags:

- 2-inch lift # AL52420
- 4-inch lift # AL52440
- 6-inch lift # AL52460
