The Air Lift Load Lifter 5000 Ultimate gives you all the great benefits of the standard Load Lifter, but includes an internal jounce bumper for added support and ride comfort.

Keep the rear end of your Ford F250 from sagging when towing or carrying a heavy load with a set of Air Lift air bag helper springs. These simple to install suspension upgrades mount between the rear leaf springs and chassis to increase your load capacity up to 5000 pounds with the power of air pressure. All Air Lift air bag helper springs are custom fit for a simple bolt-on installation. An optional air control kit (air compressor kit) can be added (not required) for additional convenience.

The internal jounce makes the difference. This exclusive feature included in the Load Lifter 5000 gives you additional support and comfort not found in other suspension air bags. Made of a closed cell urethane foam that helps to eliminate harsh jarring and provides 3 stage ride comfort. This added cushion of air from the internal jounce also helps to protect the air bags when running very low pressure.

At Suspension Connection we are one of the largest retailers of Air Lift products in the world. Great prices, expert knowledge and exceptional customer service are why so many customers trust us with their Air Lift purchases. Try us out!

All Air Lift air bag helper springs are backed by the Air Lift exclusive "60 Day Ride Satisfaction Guarantee" and a "Limited Lifetime Warranty". image

Great product
The overall kit is a great design and it is very useful while towing. the directions on other hand were terrible and it took me a long time to figure out how to put it together. before installing be sure to study the instructions and i also recommend looking at the you tube video. the product is worth the money and worth the time to install.

good product, bad directions
i installed this product on my 11 ford f250. the install was really challenging. i advise that you look into the instructions before you get to installing the kit. do more research on the internet before you jump into installing. the product overall is great. the install is just terrible. due to instructions. i wouldn't let that hold you back from a purchase though. the kit does just what it should, and actually surprised me on how well the kit works.

Took care of sagging suspension
Bought ultimate model to allow bags to run with zero psi. However the only way to accomplish this is to disconnect power and bleed pressure with schrader valve. The remote is set at 5 psi and will not go to zero. The 5 psi does change the ride without a load.
