Will Air Lift Air Bags Work With B&W Turnoverball Gooseneck On a 2013 Chevy Silverado 3500HD


I have a 2013 Chevy Silverado 3500 HD and Im planning on installing a BandW turnover ball gooseneck hitch assembly I currently have airlift 5000 airbags on my truck will this hitch install properly with these airbags


Helpful Expert Reply:

The correct B&W Turnoverball Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch for a 2013 Chevrolet Silverado 3500HD is part # BWGNRK1012. In regards to the Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Air Helper Springs part # AL57338, you can use these with the B&W Turnoverball no problem but you will need to drill into the bottom of the frame to attach the upper bracket as opposed to using the u-bolts that clamp around the frame. I have attached a photo to show this but that will be your only option to use both air bags and a gooseneck hitch together. Furthermore, the above method is also outlined in the installation manual for the airbags so there is no need to worry as this method is perfectly acceptable.

If you will be towing a fifth wheel or plan to in the future, you can use the B&W Companion Gooseneck-to-5th-Wheel Trailer Hitch Adapter part # BWRVK3500 or part # BWRVK3400.
