Which Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Ultimate For 2021 Chevy Silverado 1500


So I'm going with the air lift loadlifter 5000 ultimate for my 2021 chevy silverado. I see there are two that are similar though, the AL88288 and the AL89288. what is the difference and which should I go with?

So the difference between the two Air Lift Ultimate kits that fit your 2021 Chevy Silverado 1500 are in the mounting hardware and air lines; first I'll give you the part numbers for both and then detail the differences:

- Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Ultimate Plus Air Springs with Internal Jounce Bumpers # AL89288

- Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Ultimate Air Springs with Internal Jounce Bumpers # AL88288

The specific difference is that the Ultimate Plus # AL89288 uses roll plates made of stainless steel, air lines made from braided stainless steel, while the Ultimate # AL88288 uses powder-coated steel roll plates and nylon air lines.

The roll plates are put on the top and bottom of the spring to add stability, and having these made of stainless steel as opposed to powder-coated steel ensure they won't corrode for added durability. and having braided stainless steel air lines means they are better protected from any type of damage and potential leaks than the nylon lines.

Due to the added protection and durability of the stainless steel components, the best option is definitely the Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Ultimate Plus Air Springs with Internal Jounce Bumpers # AL89288.

During the installation of these air bags, you are going to want to ensure your air lines are cut perfectly straight, and the best way to do this is by using the Air Hose Cutter # AL10530. Also, I do highly recommend adding a compressor in order to make both monitoring and maintaining the air bags much easier. The best option to do so is a wireless compressor, the Air Lift WirelessONE Compressor System for Air Helper Springs - Remote - Bluetooth # AL25980EZ.
