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 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 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 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.

Ford F-350 Super Duty

Worked out great on my ‘99 F350 DRW and 4000# Lance truck camper. Much safer traveling with front end properly weighted, good steering / handling feedback, less vague.


Dad's Quick Lube in Lorena Texas wanted to thank etrailer for helping us pick out the best components for the customers needs, was missing one part from package due to transport neglect, Called etrailer and was fixed up right away with no hassle, thank you again etrailer


Sadly,since the day I installed them I have not needed to use them. It's nice to know I have them at my disposal.



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.


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.


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 .


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.


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.


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


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.


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.




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.


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!


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.


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!


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 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!!


Excellent. Air Bag kit came in 2 days. Installed today on a 2022 Ford F150 Platinum 4X4 with rear axle mounted headlight leveling arm. Installed in a couple hours. Looks great and works excellent!


Works great! After about 6mo I did have to tighten a fitting on one side that was leaking but it’s been great!


Works great!
Love the compressor and
the fab pressure regulator


Excellent material and the installation instructions were very clear and to the point with the best pictures that coincided with the written material. Only took me 2.5 hours from the start of assembling the air bags with the hardware on the workbench to putting away my tools! This is on my '04 dodge 3500 dually that will be handling my new Host Mammoth Slide in Camper that will set at apprx. 5000 lbs.! Beautiful to maintain level truck and to know that the springs are not collapsed and wearing them down prematurely as well as providing a safe handling truck when on the road.


The air bags fit perfectly and the directions were easy to follow. I am genuinely impressed with the customer service. I called with a concern for the shipping, and had great assistance from the representatives I spoke with. Well done, and thank you.


Air Lift Loadmaster kit was fairly easy to install and definitely made a difference! It did take roughly 4-5 hours by myself but that includes prep, ABS and emergency brake relocation, Schrader valve installation and leak check. My only advice would be to give tech tips like a 10mm deepwell socket to remove the jounce bumper on late model Chevrolets/GMC's. I spent 30 minutes trying to figure that one out alone! So far I'm really impressed with the outcome! Thanks!

  • Recommended Air Bags for a 1996 Ford F-350 w/ a B&W Gooseneck Hitch
    No, they will not but I have a set that will work with your 1996 Ford F-350 and they are compatible with B&W Gooseneck hitches. It is the Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Air Helper Springs item # AL57298. These offer a 5,000 lbs load leveling capacity.

  • Are There Air Bags for a 2000 Ford F-250 with 5th Wheel Brackets
    The only air bag system we offer for a 2000 Ford F-250 with side mounted fifth wheel and gooseneck hitch brackets is the Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Air Helper Springs part # AL57393. The reason for this is that it mounted through a pre-drilled hole in the frame which will pass through the side mounted brackets. These will do a great job of helping reduce sag and squat while towing or hauling.

The # RP30035 includes the frame brackets, bed rails and all necessary mounting hardware. . Whether or not it would be compatible with your air springs will depend on the manufacturer and part number of the system you're using. If your system is a Firestone # F2550 or an Air Lift # AL57298 or # AL57393, the fifth wheel install kit won't interfere. Generally speaking,...

    The correct air bags for your 2002 Ford F-250 4x4 with the Curt Double Lock gooseneck hitch part # C60720 are the Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Ultimate Air Helper Springs with Internal Jounce Bumpers - Rear Axle part # AL88390 .

The Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Air Helper Springs # AL57291 you found are designed to fit with the B&W fifth wheel hitch 1105 or 1199R. If you have either of these it will work on your F-250. Otherwise the Air Lift # AL57393 is the correct kit to fit your F-250. I do recommend considering either the Air Lift # AL88291 (for B&W) or Air Lift # AL88390 as these include...

This kit will fit the 2WD models only. If you can tell me what type of hitch you have in your truck, I can check the compatibility with this kit.

    On your 2004 Ford F-Series Super Duty, the B&W Turnoverball Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch w/ Custom Installation Kit # BWGNRK1108 is a confirmed fit. There are many options for the Air Lift 5,000 system but only a few will work with that hitch. I recommend the Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Air Helper Springs - Rear Axle # AL57393 for 2WD models or # AL57390 for 4WD models. These will work without modifications.

I recommend the Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Air Helper Springs # AL57393. These springs will give you the support you need and will allow you to mount directly to your axle as you desired. For your compressor, I recommend the Air Lift QuickShot Compressor System for Air Springs - Support Line and Reserve Tank - Dual Path # AL25572. This will give...

  • Difference Between Air Lift Compressor Kit AL25804 and AL25592
    The difference between the Air Lift Air Shock Controller Compressor System # AL25804 and the Air Lift Load Controller II Compressor System # AL25592 is that the 25804 is the standard compressor system where the 25592 is the upgraded version that has a better gauge with an LED backlight and extra parts so you can also inflate/deflate your air bags manually if you choose to. Aside from those couple of things they have the same compressor system and are single path operation which means that...

The kit is compatible with in-bed gooseneck or 5th wheel hitches and will work on trucks with or without the factory top overload springs. If the truck is lifted, the stock jounce bumper spacers will need to be in place. If your vehicle GVWR is under 8500 lbs, you'd use an Air Lift system instead. I'd recommend the # AL57393 for 2 WD...

What you can do is wire the compressor to an ignition switch so it is only active after you turn on your engine but otherwise won't receive power.

    I checked with Air Lift and the LoadLifter 5000 # AL57393 that you referenced is a confirmed fit for your 2002 Ford F-250.

What you need is either the Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Air Helper Springs # AL57393 is your '04 F-250 is 2WD or # AL57390 if your F-250 is 4WD.

You do have to remove the Timbrens for this kit to work correctly. We don't have an install video on our site, but the instructions are very clear and make this a straight forward install. I also recommend adding a compressor part # AL74000EZ. Adding a compressor makes it much easier to adjust your bags for the load you are pulling....

I attached an install video for this kit on a 2004 F-350 just like yours as well.
