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 protect your vehicle from the strain that comes with hauling massive loads.

Levels Your Load

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 inaccurate 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.

The LoadLifter 5000 kit will help 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 send to your air springs to maintain normal ride height - even when you are hauling a heavy load. Simply adjust the air pressure in your air bags according to the size of your load.

Adjustable and Durable Air Springs

LoadLifter's air bags are adjustable from 5 to 100 psi for precise support, and they can be inflated equally for front-to-back leveling or independently of one another for 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.

Easy Installation

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 manual inflation valves (1 for each spring). These are typically mounted on the bumper but can be installed anywhere on your vehicle in an easily accessible area. If you want to make the springs even easier to use, you can get a compressor and gauge system (sold separately).

Lifetime Warranty

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.

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!

by: is one of the best businesses I've ever worked with. Every time I order from them, the order is correct and the shipping is fast. They actually have real people that answer the phone if you call them. Thank you and keep doing such great work.


Very happy with the load lifter! My truck/camper combination is now level and rides better. No more bottoming out on the big dips on the interstate highway. My son and I installed it ourselves and it was fairly easy.


This is my second truck I've installed the airlift system on. The installation went smooth, just like before; after watching the installation video it took maybe a couple hours. I had them aired up and hitched the truck to the fifth wheel, and it made a big difference with leveling the hitch load. I'm very pleased with them.


The Air Lift Works Great! No Problem~
Truck rides Perfect with Them~

  • AirLift Loadlifter Springs For 2016 Ford F-250 Super Duty With Fifth Wheel Hitch
    The AirLift Loadlifter Springs part # AL57395 fit both a 2016 F-250 and F-350. The Air Springs will install with the fifth wheel brackets installed on the truck. There are special instructions for installing the springs with the fifth wheel brackets installed on the frame and may require drilling through the fifth wheel brackets for installation which is pretty standard for air helper spring installations with an in-bed hitch involved.

  • Is Airlift AL57396 Compatible With B&W Turnover Ball Gooseneck Hitch Installed on 2012 Ford F-250
    According to AirLift, their # AL57396 LoadLifter 5000 kit will fit a 2012 Ford F-250 4x4. For Rear Wheel Drive models, you'd use # AL57395. Both models are compatible with both SRW or DRW trucks and ARE compatible with a B&W Turnover Ball gooseneck hitch like the # BWGNRK1111 you'd looked at. You might also be interested in an on-board compressor system like # AL25856 which would allow you to fine tune the pressure in the system while you're on the fly from the comfort of the truck bed.

  • Will Air Lift Air Bags Install on 2016 Ford F-350 With B&W Turnoverball Gooseneck
    Yes, there are Air Lift air bags that will fit your 2016 Ford F-350 Super Duty with the B&W Turnoverball Gooseneck Hitch # BWGNRK1116 installed. That said, they will interfere with the brackets, so you will have to drill through them in order to do the install, though that is standard for these types of installations so it isn't something that will affect the performance of your hitch. The correct kit for your F-350 depends on if you have 2WD or 4WD: - 2WD: Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Air...

    Hey Scott; there are 7,500 lb air bags that fit your 2011 Ford F-250 Super Duty 2WD, though the # AL57596 are for the 4WD model. There aren't actually 7,500 lb Air Lift air bags that fit the 2WD model (I checked directly with Air Lift), but there are from Firestone: - Firestone Ride-Rite Red Label Extreme Duty Air Helper Springs # F2703 The # F2703 have the 7,500 lb capacity and fit your 2WD F-250, but I don't think your application needs them, in all honesty.

  • Will the Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Air Helper Springs # AL57395 Fit a 2016 Ford F-350 Super Duty DRW
    The Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Air Helper Springs # AL57395 that you referenced are compatible with a 2WD 2016 Ford F-350 Super Duty even if it has DRW. If your F-350 is a 4WD then you need part # AL57396 instead. It has the same 5,000 weight capacity but a slightly different design to fit the 4WD version. Please keep in mind that any suspension enhancement system does not increase the weight limit of your F-350. It is designed to work with a working suspension that is in good condition. I...

These systems are both direct fit bolt-on options that will work wonderfully to help provide support while towing or hauling.

These air springs will work just fine with your Turnoverball, has up to 5,000 lbs of load leveling support so you'll have plenty of capacity while you're towing or hauling, and has an adjustable air pressure range of 5 to 100 PSI. You're also going to need a compressor system in which I suggest going with the Air...

    When picking out an axle for a trailer you'll need to know the overall length of it from hub face to hub face as well as the distance between the spring seat centers to pick out correct size and the axle capacity.

  • Comparison of Air Lift Air Helper Spring Kits Available for 2015 Ford F250 2WD
    There's two primary differences between the # AL57396 and the # AL88395. The AL88395 is AirLift's Ultimate Air Helper Spring, which uses integrated jounce bumpers. The primary benefit of this is that they act as a fail-safe if the air springs should ever lose pressure. The AL88395 is compatible with 2WD vehicles. The AL57396 is a regular LoadLifter air spring, without the built-In jounce bumpers. It's compatible with 2WD trucks. For your 2WD model, you'd choose between the # AL88395...

  • Can Air Bags be Installed on a 2011 Ford F-250 with B&W Gooseneck Hitch Installed
    All of the air spring kits for the 2011 Ford F-250 mount to the sides of the truck frame rails. The issue is that the B&W gooseneck hitch brackets also install in the same location but on the outsides of the frame rails. This would not be a problem if the B&W brackets holes in them to match the frame holes located directly above the axle. This is the hole that nearly all of the available air spring kits use for your truck. You would have to drill the holes into the B&W brackets. If you...
