Recommended Air Lift Air Suspension for Rear Axle of 2016 Ram 2500


I just got air lift coil spring air bags for the front of my truck, now im trying to find them for the rear.

We have three different Air Lift systems that'll work, but the right system for you will depend on how you mainly use your truck. If you tow infrequently, or carry heavy loads in the truck bed infrequently, the # AL57289 from Air Lift with its 5000 lb capacity would work well for you. If you tow or haul fairly often with heavier weights, the # AL89289 Load Lifter Ultimate would be a better choice because of its internal bump stops which help reduce body roll in turns and also prevents the springs from being damaged should you lose pressure in the system. If you're in the rust belt or in a marine environment where corrosion is a concern, the Ultimate Plus, part # AL89289 would be a better choice because of its stainless steel roll plates, air lines and hardware that will be much more resistant to corrosion. Any of the three would work for you as long as your Ram doesn't have the factory air suspension.

You might also consider a compressor system like the # AL74000 that would allow you to control the pressure in the fronts and rears independently. This would allow you to add or remove pressure from the system at the touch of a button without leaving the truck cab.

I've linked install videos for the air bag kits (all three would install the same way) and the compressor kit I mentioned.
