Little tricky to install if you're not an mechanic. Takes longer than advertised but totally worth it. With the air springs on 90 Psi our F250 was able to carry 4300 lbs for a short trip. With the heavy trailer on its an amazing driving experience. Very stable, better breaking and lights are down on the road. Will definitely recommend it.

product works well with fifth wheel attached. very happy with results. only issue was installation. I have Curt mount for fifth wheel hitch and apparently it wasn't an easy install. I had local shop do the job and they struggled to get passenger side bag to fit with mounting bracket.

Best price found anywhere, shipped on time and fit my truck like a glove. Towed for the first time yesterday, what a difference it makes, such a smooth ride.

These are the 3rd set of Air Lift Load Lifter bags I have purchased and put on my Ford F350 trucks for hauling my pick up campers and I have not had any problems with them and that’s the reason I keep buying them! This is the first time I purchased them from SD Trucksprings where I found a great price and fast delivery!
by Jeff P
They are wonderful and I have tested them with 25000 # the best accessory I have put on my f250
by John I
Great kit. Easy install and great flexibility. I'm gonna add the Air Lift 72000 compressor kit now.
Great price, super fast shipping and excellent company. SD Truck Springs is very professional.

No issue watched the video on u-tube first. Fully assembled on the bench so I knew I had everything and how they went together. Took a couple hours full installation.
by Dusty C
I tow a travel trailer regularly and found that, even when using a good weight distributing hitch properly installed, I was getting more sag than I wanted. When towing at night I was constantly getting bright-lighted even though I didn't have my brights on. My 2015 F-250 came with the camper package that includes the overload springs, but overloads require the truck to squat before engaging. I wanted a solution to bring the truck back up to near stock height and air bags work perfectly for this.

I bought the Air Helper Springs and I have't say that Air bags are working out great.
by Evart H
The airbags worked out perfect I am very satisfied.
by Roy D
These air bags are great. Didn't have time to install myself, so spent $150.00 for install. Took about 2 hours. They make a noticeable difference with towing mt 36' car hauler RV in keeping the ride level and stable. I would recommend these to anyone. Great product.
by Craig M
If I could do it anyone can. The instructions confused me so I checked the video out on YouTube which helped a great deal. Improved the ride while towing my fifth wheel.
by Chris S
Phenomenal product. No load raises the rear end about 5 inches. Hasn't budged with a ton of rocks. Would highly recommend this product. Don't pay someone hundreds to do it, easy enough to do your self. Recommend a power ratchet to save you some time.
by John D
Good fit. Install was a bit time consuming. All the parts and pieces were included. Great deal with the $50 dollar rebate. The bags perform as advertised. I didn't need them to make the ride better but use them to level out the truck and keep the weight shifted to the front of the truck for better braking performance.
by bryan m
Very easy to install and work flawlessly. SD truck springs is a great company to do business with!
by devin m
I am very impressed with the cushioned ride these provide. I drive a Ford F-250 super duty and pull a bumper pull toy hauler that weighs close to 14k lbs when fully loaded. I run about 65 psi to level out. The installation took 2 of us about 3 hours to complete it was pretty simple just a lot of parts to attach. It was definitely helpful to have 2 sets of hands for holding and tightening bolts. My truck drives much smoother especially over bumps. There are plenty of YouTube videos that I recommend watching they were very helpful.
by Paul G
Fairly easy to install - lots of interferences though. Took longer than it should as there are so many pieces. Definitely raised the loaded truck back to normal. Would be nice to have a air gauge that can tie into the air line and a bleeder valve to release pressure easier.
by thomas h
I bought a set of load lifter 5000 and single gauge compressor to get rid of sag in my 15 F250,diesel, when I hook up my 34' bumper hitch camper.
Installed air bags myself in about 2 hours with no issues. Directions were very clear. Took about 2 hours to do compressor as well and no issues. Very impressed with the quality of the products! No leaks and after hooking my camper up, these work FANTASTIC!! No more bulky weight distribution hitch for me. Very highly recommended!!!
by Chad L
This kit is the best thing I ever did to my truck, really easy to install and it works great.
I haul a lot of heavy loads and it is so nice to just push a button and have a level And sturdy ride.
by Lonnie H
Air Suspension System works great. Levels truck with our 34' 5th wheel & take out the lunge when crossing bridge to road gaps. The only negative comment, the carriage bolts that straddle the axle brackets needed to be slightly longer. I highly recommend adding this to any truck used for towing.
by matt l
Great product. Was the perfect fit for my vehicle. Only negative is the installation instructions were difficult to decipher.
by Chet T
These are great. Easy install work great. This is the second truck i have owned that i put them on.
by ROD m
I have a 2011 Ford F250 and haul all sorts of things, 2 quads, 18' trailer, 4 horse trailer, pop up pickup camper. Before the air bags when I put my camper on the back of my truck droped enough that people would flash me that I had my headlights on bright when I didn't. Now I can raise my truck back to stock height and ends my headlight problem and gives me better load control...Great product.
Did the Air Lift Air Bags perform as intended, keeping your bed level? yes
Were the Air Bags easy to install? not bad but a few of the bolts are hard to get to once the air bags are installed making it difficult to tighten so I had to remove the air bag to tighten top bolts.
Did you like being able to adjust the support and ride height? works great. I haul a pop up pickup camper and before my headlights were high and now I can adjust back to stock height also the ride is better.
Did the Air Bags give you the towing or hauling capacity you were Looking for? didn't increase capacity but
by Daniel B
Easy to install and work great, much better level ride. But you never sent me the free t-shirt that was promised
by Curt D
I am very happy with the set-up.
The instructions should have said removing the spare tire gives you plenty of room to work (driver side in a pita with all the wiring in the way)
and one of the bolts should have been shorter (I have the factory 5th wheel hitch and found if I wedged the nut up between the frame and hitch and used a shorter bolt and used Loctite instead of the lock washer I did not have to drill out the frame for the bolt to fit.
All in all very happy and would recommend ( and have ) to my friends.
I have since added the remote compressor kit.
Thanks SD truck Spring

I am really pleased with the air bags and compressor system . It is wonderful to be able to adjust ride on the fly. I also use air system to unhitch my trailer. I increase pressure in air bags, then lower legs of my 5th wheel. Lower them to ground, then release air and drive forward. Lot less work than lowering legs of trailer. The system has worked without a hitch. No pun intended.

The Load Lifter 5000 works great! You will not be disappointed with this system. I eventually purchased the Air Lift WirlessONE Compressor System to go with the Load Lifter 5000. The wireless remote makes it really easy to add air or release air in the system while moving down the road. Both systems were easy to install. I drive a 2011 Ford F350 Dually. If you install yourself, remove the spare tire. You will need the extra room. The instructions are easy to read and follow. I did a lot of research before purchasing. This is the best deal for the money. Oh, in case you're wondering, I pull a 40' fifth wheel that weights approximately 14,000lbs.

21 months ago, I did 3-4 hour under truck install that was completed without any serious problems. I am a reasonably competent home mechanic with good tools. Product instructions were clear and all parts were of high quality. Air fill fittings were installed in the rear wheel wells, one for each bag, on the upper front side. This allowed short tube runs and convenient access to fill the bags. So far, NO LEAKS, NO PROBLEMS, and GOOD LIFT that supports a 16' Elkhorn Side door camper well. The air bags CREATE A STABLE AND SECURE RIDE that takes advantage of the Super Duty's great loaded handling characteristics. An aftermarket compressor was not integrated for cab control, but installed separately with a tank on the back bumper of the camper. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

PRODUCT APPEARS TO WORK WELL.INSTALLED ON 2012 F-250.THE DIRECTIONS WERE AWFUL.CORRECT ASSEMBLY DID NOT MATCH ILLUSTRATIONS AT ALL.WOULD BUY FIRESTONE NEXT TIME TO AVOID FRUSTRATION OF ILL CONCIEVED DIRECTIONS.
by jeffrey m
Air suspension kit had good instruction that were easy to follow. All the parts and hardware needed were included. Took 4hrs to install by myself in driveway. Used the air suspension to level my 2013 F350 crew cab diesel with a 3,700lb slide in camper on bed. It worked great! And really helped with body roll. Very happy with this system.
