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


Carrying heavy cargo in your truck bed or trailer puts tremendous stress on your . 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 the support it desperately needs. Air Lift's LoadLifter 5000 provides up to 5,000 pounds of load-leveling capacity and distributes the weight of your payload to all four 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, two-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 at normal ride height. You can find the normal ride height of your 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 and return them for a full product refund. Now that's confidence.

Video Transcript for Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Rear Axle Air Helper Springs Review

We're going to be taking a look at and showing you how to install Air-Lifts LoadLifter 5,000 Air Helper Springs. Before you install your airbags, you want to make sure you take a measurement of your factory ride height because this is ideally where we want our vehicle to be at all times. So here at the back we are at about 43 inches. And then we are going to go check our front. And on the front we're measuring about 39 and three quarter inches.We've now got about a thousand pounds of water here that we're going to place in the back of our truck and we're going to see how our factory suspension handles it. So we are going to put this in here now and we'll see where we're at.

And now with all this weight in the back of our vehicle, we've dropped down to 41 and a half inches. So an inch and a half less with all this weight in the back than where we we're at before. Now I guarantee you when we go to the front, the front's also going to be lifted up. So what this does is it causes the tires at the front, the geometry of the suspension is going to change, which is going to cause you to have less tire road contact. So you're going to have decreased performance there.It's also going to affect your braking performance because of the less surface area you have on your tire contact to the road as well.

And your headlights are also going to be aimed up towards the sky. And sure enough, when we come here to check the front, we're a half an inch higher. And while that may not seem like much, a half an inch on your headlights, because the further the distance they go out, the further they're going to be up, it's actually quite substantial. And you'd be surprised how much of your visibility you lose at night when you've got the front end just a little bit higher.We've now got our airbags installed and I've placed the weight in the back of our truck once again. I've aired the bags up, let's recheck our ride height.

And with our airbags installed now, we're sitting just under 43 inches. So we're basically right back to that factory ride height. We're less than a 16th of an inch from where we're supposed to be. And in the front, we're going to recheck as well. We're right back to where we started at 39 and three quarter inches, which means our headlights are going to be pointing at the correct direction.

And the geometry over suspension is going to be correct, giving us the best contact between the road and our tires so we can ensure that we're going to have optimal handling and braking performance, regardless of what we're hauling behind us.We've now loaded up our vehicle with about a thousand pounds worth of water weight. We're going to take it out on our test course and we're going to see how it handles. So we're going to come into our uneven bumps section first. And you feel how it's thrown aside, aside a little bit. It does kind of not want to spring back as quick as I'd like it to because you can see it's really kind of thrown us around a little bit here. We're now coming into the normal bump section where it's kind of like simulating a speed bump in a parking lot. And every time we go over in the back, you can really feel it dip back down pretty heavy.Now we're going to go over to our slalom. We're going to see how it affects us in some evasive maneuvers. Oh boy, yeah, and I don't want to do it too much here. You can feel the weight, how it wants to side us to. One side almost wants to lean as we turn.So in the bump sections, it didn't feel too bad. The suspension on this truck's pretty stiff. But there in the slalom, it gets a little sketchy when you really have an invasive maneuver. It kind of wants to roll the body pretty hard. So let's get back in and get the airbags on and then we'll have to test course again and see where we're at.We've got our airbags installed. Now, we're going to head back out on the test course. We've loaded up from the back of the vehicle again with our thousand pounds of water weight and we're going to go into our uneven bumps section first. And I can already tell that with the bags installed here, the suspension does feel much different. It's not an uncomfortable amount of stiffness, but it is definitely noticeable. I can tell that on our own even bumps here, that we don't have as much rocking back and forth coming off of each bump. It returns to a straightness much faster, but it is just a little bit stiffer.So now we're going to go into the straight bumps, which is kind of like your speed bumps you'd have in an apartment complex. And the front feels nice and soft like it did before and in the back, I can definitely tell it is stiffer than it was before. The stiffness is a little bit uncomfortable, but it does keep our vehicle right where we need to be much faster. We don't have as much bouncing up and down in the back.Let's head over to our slalom now where I expect we're going to have drastic increase in performance. And now in our slalom, we're going to start turning. And oh yeah, this is really where you're going to notice this. We've got a thousand pounds back there and I don't feel like I'm being thrown around at all. It's still noticeable you're hauling that weight when you go over the bumps due to how the airbags are stiff and you do feel that weight going up and down. But man, in an evasive maneuver situation, I would feel so much more comfortable driving now than I did before.So in the end of our test scores driving with no air bags versus with airbags loaded up with a thousand comes of water, my overall feeling of the system is that it's going to be fantastic if safety is what your biggest concern is. Over on the slalom, I had much more confidence in the control I had in the vehicle. I just felt like I could take those turns and the weight in the back wasn't slinging me around. I just really felt like we had a good grip on the road.Now, when we came into our bumps section there with the airbags installed, it did seem a bit stiffer. It was not as comfortable as a ride as it was with no air bags. But to me we're going over a big bumpy course here. We've got all these set up in a row. Out on the road, you're going to hit the occasional pothole. It's one little minor dip of uncomfort is definitely worth it to me and my opinion on how much safer I feel, especially in those evasive maneuvers.Now, there are other suspension enhancement systems out there such as Timbrens which also replaced your jounce bumper. They're just a larger hard rubber that is somewhat similar to your jounce bumper but has better properties as it's designed to squish and act with your suspension system to work with it. What's nice about the Timbrens is that there's no maintenance. You never have to worry about air, checking them, because with your airbags here, they do fluctuate slightly with temperature, as temperature goes down, pressure is going to go down slightly. As it goes up, it'll go up slightly. You don't have to worry about any of that with Timbrens. They're never going to leak. But what I will say is they do have quite a bit rougher ride in comparison with airbags. And your airbags can be stiff if you air them up to a high PSI levels, but you often don't need to go above 40 pounds for most loads and at your lower levels, it's going to be much smoother of a ride than a Timbrens system.So you can look at it this way, with the Timbrens, they're going to be working regardless if you have a load in the vehicle or not. If you have a load though, the Timbrens are going to be compressing to help support the load. If you have no load, then the Timbrens aren't going to compress as much. So any impacts that you hit on the road are going to travel through those into the cab of the vehicle and you're going to feel it more.Whereas with our airbags here, since we can't adjust it, we only get the increased stiffness on our airbags when we've got it loaded down real high with a lot of air in our bags. We all load our truck, remove the air bag down to the minimum of five PSI and it feels like a factory truck again.And this is what our airbags look like when they're installed. They replace your factory jounce bumpers and install between your rear axle and your frame. The airbags are adjustable between five and 100 PSI and offer up to a 5,000 pound load carrying capacity. Each one can be aired up individually, left and right, so you can also adjust for offset loads.It's a double convoluted design, but you can see here we've got the lower and upper chambers there where our air goes. And this helps increase the burst pressure of the bag by increasing it's durability. You also see roll plates on the top and bottom and this will help offset for body roll and support the airbag to further increase the durability of the airbag.One of the nice things about airbags is that they have constant contact between your frame and your axle, unlike your factory jounce bumper, which hangs down, but it has a gap between the axle. So with your factory John's bumper, you get no support until your suspension is bottomed out. Where our airbag here is going to get support throughout its entire length of travel. It's also going to be adjustable. It seems like your vehicle's soft, you can stiffen it up a little bit to help keep it from bouncing too much. And if you overinflated it, you can always get a little bit of air pressure out to help soften the writeup too if you've made it too stiff.You'll inflate your airbags using the manual inflation valves in the back. You'll have one for the left and one for the right. If you desire, you can purchase a tee here @eachtrailer.com and route these lines together to a single fitting so you can air on bolt up simultaneously. This is more convenient and a lot faster faring up your airbags, but you do lose the side to side leveling support.And that completes our look at of Air-Lift LoadLifter 5,000 air helper Springs.

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.

Quick shipping and great customer service. Install went very well and has helped reduce the rear sag on our 01 F350 dually. We have a +3200lb Palomino truck camper in the bed. My next project will be replacing stock sway bars with heavier duty sway bars.

Review from a similar LoadLifter 5000 in Vehicle Suspension


Exactly what we needed, was originally going to install Air Lift 1000 HD helpers for coil springs. But, those items were on backorder at the factory and that was more of a make do solution. The Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 was in stock, Nicole at etrailer arranged the cancelation of the original order, and had the 5000s shipped. Installation as per the instructions was a breeze, had all the necessary tools until it came time to reinstalling the truck's coil springs. ATTENTION to all, once the LoadLifter 5000 air bags are installed, the axle on a RAM 1500 Classic doesn't drop as far, short by about 2 inches! Luckily, the local store loans tools, with the aid of a coil spring compressor, the coil springs were reinstalled in a few minutes.
Since the trailer electrical connections are on the drivers side of the license plate, I located both schrader valves on the drivers side of the license plate. Note the position of the heat shield on the passenger side.

Awesome addition to my truck. First picture shows how much the truck was squatted, the second is after installation and is now level. Ride and drive are so much better. I installed myself with no special tools. Took about 2 hours. Instructions and videos on web site were a big help! Thanks etrailer!

Review from a similar LoadLifter 5000 in Vehicle Suspension


The air bag kit was easy to install, works great, but it was missing four - 3/8" nuts. The air bags tremendously improved the ride when pulling our RV. It all went together with the hitch we bought from etrailers a couple of years ago. Service is great and the people follow up. You all are our go-to company for truck and trailer parts.

I got your deal of the day, but unfortunately, your trailers are a bit lacking for my needs. I built a stage trailer. Here are the pics. By the way, I purchased all my trailer parts from etrailer for this project, tires, rims, axials, brakes, sway bar, airlift suspension, electrical, and so on. I couldn't have done this without your staff.
Thanks

Review from a similar LoadLifter 5000 in Vehicle Suspension


I have a 2020 F250 and when I hook up to my 14000 pound 5th wheel the pickup would sag a little. It pulled okay as-is but it really needed to be level for better stability, braking, and headlights. I purchased the Air Lift Loadlifter 5000 from etrailer and after they had installed it, what a difference it made. With just the install, it elevated the bed one additional inch with only 5 pounds of air in the bags. Once I hooked up, I put 25 pounds of air in the bags which was plenty to raise the bed to just beyond level. I am very satisfied with this addition and if you are experiencing sag, I highly recommend this product. For the minimal cost of the product, it was well worth the investment in safety, ride comfort , and stability.

Review from a similar LoadLifter 5000 in Vehicle Suspension


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.


Comments
These things have been great! I tow a travel trailer thats about 8K loaded with roughly 1100 tongue weight. The bags level this load perfectly so headlights are right and everything is stable. I run 10 psi unloaded, 40psi with normal loads in the camper, and 70psi with the fresh water tank full which is forward in the trailer. I kept it simple with individual valves for each bag. Wouldnt change a thing. A bicycle pump is more than adequate for making changes in pressure bc the volume is so low that its easy. All good with this product.

I towed my travel trailer with these on for the first time this past weekend and it made a huge difference. With my F150 towing a 32’ camper it took a lot of the bounce and sway out of the trailer. It kept it perfectly level and they are easy to use.

Review from a similar LoadLifter 5000 in Vehicle Suspension


I first purchased the Air Lift LoadLifter in an attempt to help reduce trailer sway and handling of my truck when towing my travel trailer. The far exceeded my expectations. Having the ability to get both my truck and my trailer completely level has made an enormous difference in towing. These air bags are not designed to reduce trailer sway, but being able to tow with everything level and having anti-sway mechanism is the perfect pair. I only wished I had found them earlier and there would be been several less "white knuckle" driving experiences.

Review from a similar LoadLifter 5000 in Vehicle Suspension


Warm weather has allowed my son and me to do this installation. It went well and took us about 5 hours from start to finish including unpacking, reading the manual, installation, and putting up the tools. Then did the leak test and did the test drive. Hauled 500 pounds today and working great. Without any weight in the truck it still rides very smooth.
Thanks to Erik B for his help and advice on line.


Comments
It has been great especially when I am pulling my travel trailer. I am pulling 5500 to 6000 pounds and this is where you will really notice the improvement! The air ride system with the automatic leveling has made travel with my travel trailer a much less stressful time and I am now a happy camper.

Bag had a hole in it and I didn’t find it until I had already installed them because in was in a bolt hole. Now I’m waiting to get another bag from airlift because y’all can’t warranty there product. My next purchase was going to be the compressor kit to go with the bags but not now. The whole warranty thing is very frustrating. My opinion don’t sale anything you can’t warranty yourself.


Comments
While we do handle the warranties for the majority of the products that we carry there are a handful of manufactures like Airlift that prefer to handle warranty related issues themselves.

First, I can’t say enough about etrailer and Amy E. and all her help. I will be happy to highly recommend etrailer to all of my camping friends and people I meet at the campground. They were extremely helpful and very diligent in keeping me informed of my order status.

The airlift load lifter 5000 has performed fantastic. I got home Thursday evening from work and started the installation project. I did the process in my driveway in 2 1/2 hours. The instructions were very clear and easy to follow. If you have the capability I recommend lifting the whole back end of the truck and removing the rear wheels for installation. I was able to work over the rotor while kneeling instead of laying underneath the truck the entire time. I also purchased the airlift union tee and put a single Schrader valve in my bumper.
I left the next afternoon for a weekend of camping and was happy to see my truck sitting level while being hooked up to the camper.
Thank you again Amy E and etrailer

Installed the kit myself and noticed a drastic improvement in chugging and movement of the trailer when I go over bumps. I usually run around 40psi pulling my 37 foot 14000 pound 5th wheel and at times I forget that I am pulling a trailer. When I upgrade my truck in the next three years I will be ordering another kit.

Review from a similar LoadLifter 5000 in Vehicle Suspension


Great system and fairly easy to install. torquing the bolts to spec is somewhat challenging due to difficulty of getting a torque wrench in there. I am towing a 9500lb camper behind my F150 and the air springs made a huge difference. still need a bigger truck but at least I can take my time getting a new one while still towing comfortably with the F150.
etrailer was great as always. Couldn't be happier!


Comments
it has been 1 year since the install and I am more convinced than ever that i should have done this a long time ago. the system works great and it has made towing much better.

The install was easy. The instructions do not address the fact that you should not allow the axle to hang on the air bags when the vehicle is on a lift or jack stands. I included pictures of the chains I made to support the weight of the axle when on my lift. Also a pro tip is to smear a small amount of Teflon thread sealant on the tube to lubricate and help the tube to seal in the fitting, I included pictures of the sealant applied.

Review from a similar LoadLifter 5000 in Vehicle Suspension


I purchased the air helper spring to assist with the weight distribution hitch for my travel trailer. I have some sag in the rear suspension on my 1/2 ton PU and was hoping to level out my truck with the air springs. As I aired up the spring the rear of my truck raised up as well as the front. They did not help the rear suspension sag on my truck, only give some assistance to the rear leaf springs, small benefit.

Overall experience with etrailer was very good. Air Lift was installed on a 2004 Dodge 2500 which is used to pull a 36 ft 5th wheel, stock trailer and lots of ton loads of cattle products. The Air Lift system has leveled out the ride, stabilized the ride and overall performance is excellent. The only issue I have is a minor air leak which requires regular checking and adding air. Have not been able to locate this leak and for the time being will just keep checking and adding air as needed. Yes, I would recommend Air Lift!!


Comments
You mentioned that you were experiencing minor air leaks. The easiest to see where the leak is coming from is to use a spray bottle with soap water to spray each fitting to see which is leaking. Once you have found it remove the air line and re cut it. Make sure to get a very straight even cut. An angled or crooked cut will cause leaking every time. Then place it back in and retest.

They work well after fixing leak in line. 4 stars because I don't like the way they sit on the axle housing. I believe it would be much better if you rounded the points where they sit.i will be taking them off to do this myself for piece of mind.

  • Air Lift Load Lifter 5000 Suspension for 2003 F350 Cab and Chassis
    The Air Lift # AL57345 that you mentioned would be a great choice for you if there is 8 inches of clearance to the inside of the frame members without any interference from the gas tank of other obstruction.

  • Suspension Enhancement Recommendation for a 2005 Ford F-450 with Snowplow Package
    Adding an air bag kit to your 2005 Ford F-450 will definitely help improve the ride quality whether you are towing your camper or not. The only thing that I'm a little concerned about is the fitment.
