Does Air Bag Suspension Enhancement Need a Single or Dual Path Compressor

Question:

I am looking to install air bags on my 2020 F250 Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Ultimate Plus Air Springs w/ Internal Bumpers - Stainless Steel - Rear Axle Item # AL95FJ. I tow a 40foot tow hauler with the Gen y gooseneck hitch. My question is do I need the dual path compressor or will a single path be fine?

Helpful Expert Reply:

For most people a single path compressor kit is the best option for air suspension kits like the Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Ultimate Plus Air Springs w/ Internal Bumpers - Stainless Steel - Rear Axle Item # AL95FJ that fits your 2020 Ford F-250. This gives puts equal pressure in both bags at same time without having to worry about trying to balance pressure between the two. Really you only need a dual path if one side of the truck bed is heavier than the other which is pretty rare.

So you could use a single path kit like the Air Lift Load Controller I part # AL25655 and you'd be set. Generally for towing a single path is always used since the tongue weight of the trailer will be equal on both sides of the tow vehicle.
