Air Lift's LoadLifter 5000 was designed with an exact purpose: to provide full-time, first-class support to your 3/4-ton or 1-ton pickup, motor home, or commercial truck. With this kit, you get a safer ride and simultaneously protect your vehicle from the strain that comes with hauling massive loads.


Carrying heavy cargo in your truck bed or trailer puts tremendous stress on your vehicle. Your brakes erode faster, your tires wear unevenly, and handling suffers severely. When towing, you might also experience excessive sway, bottoming out, and even improper and unsafe headlight aim. Fortunately, there is a solution to these problems. By pairing your existing suspension with the LoadLifter 5000, you can seriously beef up your suspension, ensure equal load distribution, and give your vehicle the support it desperately needs. Air Lift's LoadLifter 5000 provides up to 5,000 lbs of load-leveling capacity and distributes the weight of your payload to all 4 wheels. As a result, the stress on your OEM suspension is significantly reduced.


LoadLifter's air bags are adjustable from 5 to 100 psi for precise support, and they can be inflated independently of one another for front-to-rear and side-to-side leveling. They are made of high-quality, 2-ply, fabric-reinforced rubber. Most air bags lose air at the ends, where the bag is enclosed with a steel cap, because the steel can rust and corrode over time, creating small holes. 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. Also, LoadLifter 5000 comes with Air Lift's exclusive roll plates, which both protect your air springs and beef up the load capacity of the springs.


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 air in through the inflation valves. A line kit is included with the springs so that you can install the valves (one for each spring) in an easily accessible area - typically they are installed on the bumper. If you want to make the springs even easier to use, you can get a compressor and gauge system (sold separately).


Air Lift kits are designed to keep your vehicle at normal ride height. You can find the normal ride height of your vehicle by unloading it and measuring the distance between the bottom edge of your wheel well and the center of the hub. After you find and record this distance, you can regulate the amount of air that you put into your air springs to maintain normal ride height - even when you are hauling a heavy load. You will need to adjust the air pressure in your air bags according to the size of your load.


Along with a lifetime warranty that has no mileage restrictions, Air Lift offers a 60-day satisfaction guarantee. Just install and use LoadLifter 5000 springs for 60 days, and if you are not satisfied at the end of this time, you can remove them from your vehicle and return them for a full product refund. Now that's confidence.

2015 Ford Transit T250

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.

Have used air lift products before. Great product, well designed and engineered.

I installed the Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Air Helper Springs on my 2018 Transit 350 extended and they work well. I also have the Air Lift WirelessAIR Compressor System. The van extends so far behind the rear axle that it is easy to drag the trailer hitch when driving through a dip. Now I can press a button on the remote and raise the rear of the van 3".

Can't wait to get this installed. My Harley Tri glide is heavy, and this will make it easier to pull on my trailer.

just as expected

Air Lift air springs are good and dependable, use them for the last 25 years on three pick-ups always worked great. My complaint would be against the lousy packaging which came with two or three holes and all messed up, luckily all that was missing was one washer.



by:

Installation of the Loadlifter 5000 kit went smoothly, no issues at all. One of the best advantages of having this system on my F-150 is the stabilization it provides when towing our camper. I tow a 6,000 lb camper with an 800 lb hitch weight. I use a weight distribution hitch so the truck and camper ride level, as they should. The difference with the Loadlifter system is that it controls the bounce, providing a much more stable and controlled ride. I highly recommend this air spring kit in conjunction with a weight distribution hitch. When you don't need to added support of the air springs, ie no load, just drop the air pressure down to 5 lbs and you don't know they are there.



by:

just getting done putting my 5000 Justable air springs put them on about three hours I didn’t have any left I did them on the ground so that’s not too bad I’m gonna be sending some pictures along with us so thanks very much and I hope they work

I was really happy with etrailer and would highly recommend them and have to many people this past year. My motor home needed these air bags and I called the manufacturer and gave them my vin number which has always been what was needed for anything I have had the purchase with any of my vehicles. But the person that I delt with said he needed the frame number I said where do I find that and he said I would have to call the manufacturer of the motor home.So I called Newmar and they said to call ford I called ford and never got a call back . I called etrailer and gave them the vin number and two days later I had the parts and installed them the next day . Thank you for having people that know what they are talking about and making my experience a good one .



by:

I installed these air lift bags in a day. It was a lot longer than I thought, but it was in the middle of winter in an unheated shop and only basic hand tools. No hoist, so there were a lot of up and down trips with a creeper. Very good installation manual which made the process easy. Very happy with the purchase.



by:

It was exactly as described and advertised. Works perfectly on my 2019 Ford F150. It took me longer than expected to install because of the fridge was just filled by my perfect wife who knew I was going to be installing the kit. The kit helps me with towing my travel trailer. My truck looks great jacked up rolling around town but I took it back down to the recommended 5lbs.



by:

The product was exactly as advertised. The installation instructions and video were easy to follow.



by:

The hitch and box arrived in exceiient conditon. I have yet to take the rig for a good test drive. I took it for a short drive but need more time with ot to fully appreciate its capabilities. The installation was a breeze. Fitment was perfect.



by:

I have a 2019 Nissan Titan XD with the 5.6 GAS motor. Wanted to do an Airlift suspension to provide a little support and get my headlights perfectly back to level when towing my travel trailer. No one makes an airbag kit for the gas XD, but after discussing it some with John H at etrailer, I decided to go with the kit for the diesel truck and see how things went.
The kit for the diesel truck fit perfectly, except that there is an emissions component hung from a bracket on the driver's sign frame that prevents a direct install of the driver's side bag. My shop was able to install the kit with no trouble - they just had to bend the bracket with the small emissions component attached upwards for clearance. Everything else went in as designed. Great fit - can't wait to see it work under load.



by:

I FIT THESE ON A NISSAN NV 3500. IT TOOK SOME WELDING ( THERE IS NOT A MODEL FOR THESE BUT MY MECHANIC KNEW HE COULD MAKE IT FIT). THEY ARE GREAT!! YOU CANT OVER LOAD THE TRUCK I KEEP IT AT 70 PSI. I ALSO FITTED AN ELECTRIC COMPRESSOR AND AN ADJUSTABLE 1/4 INCH REGULATOR AND DONT NEED ANY ADJUSTMENT.



by:

I installed these on a 2004 Ram 2500. I have towed an 11k fifth wheel approximately 10,000 miles with them and couldn’t be happier. The hardest part was figuring out where to put the airlines. I decided to run them through the existing frame holes and drill out the top license plate screws to give them a stealthy look with easy access to fill. Install didn’t take more than 2 hours with air tools.



by:

We bought this to stabilize our 3/4 ton pickup we use when pulling our large 5th wheel camper. Does a great job! Glad we bought it!



by:

First, looking at the website was pretty easy to navigate. Ordered product and confirmed delivery email sent that evening. Received two days later. Box a little damaged, but that was on FEDEX. However everything inside in tact and instructions were simple to follow.

The product, I wish I would have gotten these years ago. Makes the unloaded ride much better and not so “horse bucking” that I was used to. I usually loaded the back with 150 lbs of sand. No longer, rides smooth. Haven’t had a loaded test yet but looking forward to it.



by:

Installed thes a year ago. I use them to pull my 35 foot fifth wheel camper. They are fantastic I recently added the wireless remote air compressor kit. I really love that!



by:

We just installed this last night on our truck. The instructions are easy to fallow. We will get our new 5th wheel next weekend so we will see then if they hold up. We love etrailer.com excellent customer service and fast shipping. Chris W thank you so much for taking care of our order so quick!!! We are working so hard on getting everything installed before we get our new 5th wheel!!! Your Amazing!!

  • Air Bag Helper Springs for a 2015 Ford Transit T350 Van
    I double checked with Air Lift and kit # AL57213 is a confirmed fit on your 2015 Ford Transit 350 van. We haven't had customers provide reviews yet for this particular vehicle and air bag combination but I can tell you that Air Lift air bags have high review scores because they do make a quality product and have excellent customer support. Not to mention the product has a lifetime warranty! If you want to be able to add/remove air from the air bags from the comfort of the vehicle I recommend...

  • Recommended Suspension Enhancement For 2017 Ford Transit T350
    There is a fit for your 2017 Ford Transit T350, but the # AL88213 is not a fit. The kit that is confirmed to fit your T350 is the Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Air Helper Springs - Rear Axle # AL57213. This kit has the same functions as the other kit you referenced, but it does not have the internal jounce springs. This won't be an issue as long as you keep the 5 psi minimum pressure that both systems suggest and don't completely bottom out your factory suspension simultaneously. This is...

  • High Capacity Trailer Hitch, Wiring, and Brake Controller for 2018 Ford Transit T350
    The highest capacity trailer hitch for your 2018 Ford Transit T350 is the Curt Class IV part # C14012 which has an 8,000 lb trailer towing capacity without WD and then 10,000 with WD. You will need to start with a 4-way (if you do not have one). For that you would want the # HM11140244. From there you would need to convert the 4-way to a 7-way so that you can install the brake controller. For that you will want the Brake Controller Install Kit and 7-Way Adapter part # ETBC7. I attached...

  • Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Air Helper Spring with Internal Jounce Bumpers Compared to Without
    The Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Air Helper Springs, # AL57213 and the Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Ultimate Air Helper Springs with Internal Jounce Bumpers, # AL88213 are the two confirmed options for the 2015 Ford Transit T250. The added advantage is simply to combine the adjustability of air springs with the reliability of jounce-style springs. I recommend that you always maintain at least 5 psi on the system.

  • Air Bag Helper Springs for a 2015 Ford Transit T350
    Air bags are the way to go to soften up the ride of your 2015 Ford Transit T350. As long as your model is NOT a 350HD then you can use # AL57213. If it is an HD model this kit will not fit. To be able to add or remove air as needed from the air bags from the comfort of the vehicle cab I recommend compressor system # AL25592. The other suspension enhancement products are going to make the ride stiffer which is not what you want. The only other option would be to replace the stock suspension...

  • Air Lift Air Helper Springs and Compressor System For a 2021 Ford Transit T350
    There is no concern with the square notches in the Air Lift Kits # AL57213 & # AL88213 on the round axle of your 2021 Ford Transit T350. The thickness of the steel is thick enough they will not damage each other. Personally I prefer the Kit # AL88213 as it includes internal jounce bumpers. The factory jounce bumpers are removed to install the air springs. Having them installed in the air springs will help reduce bouncing also while loaded. I recommend the Air Lift WirelessAIR Compressor...

  • Air Bag Kit Recommendation for 2016 Ford Transit T350
    For the 2016 Ford T350 we have the Air Lift kit part # AL57213 as a confirmed fit which would work well. For a compressor kit we then have the Kit part # AL25592 which would work well too.

  • Rear Suspension Enhancement Option for a 2017 Ford Transit T350 Dually
    I do have a rear suspension enhancement option that will work with your 2017 Ford Transit T350 but as you mentioned, the Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Air Helper Springs part # AL57213 will not work on models equipped with dual rear wheels. For a similar type of suspension enhancement that will fit your T350 with dual rear wheels, I recommend using the Timbren Suspension Enhancement System part # TFRTR350HD.
