I bought the airbags with the compressor and automatic leveling device. I’m very pleased with it I’ve had it for about 1 1/2 years I had one compressor to burn up but was shipped a replacement with no questions asked. I would definitely recommend SD truck springs to my friends.

These work great. I have driven cross country pulling my 5th wheel and these have performed flawlessly. I wouldn’t tow without them!

Installation instructions were clear and installation was pretty easy. Took a little longer than the 2 hours due to a previously installed gooseneck hitch and rusted bumper stop threads. Only issues were a slow leak in one of the valve stem cores and the TEE showed up separate from the kit. I have pulled a livestock trailer and a fifth wheel camper and have been very happy with the kit.

They work awesome. Just what I needed to level things out. My only regret is I didn't do it 5 years ago. Thanks Great product, great service and fast shipping.

Installed the hitch on a 2014 Superduty it was very easy to install and is very sturdy, the only complaint I have is that it gets frozen if left in one position and not turned over every few days, this is my first turn over ball so not sure if this is expected or if it can be stopped, otherwise great product....

Great kit. It levels my truck perfectly when I haul my horse trailer with just 30psi and i don't notice any harder ride when I'm not hauling a trailer so i just leave it at 30psi all the time.

The parts were all there. The install was as directed and clean. The lift and support of the air bags are great. The end result was not as anticipated. The internal mounting system raised the rear end about three inches and took away any suspension movement at a static setting. I think the external mounting system would be better to achieve the added lift and still keep some suspension movement at the static setting. If I could get just the external mounting brackets, I would change the mounting on my vehicle. Thanks

Fast delivery and was to install took three hours but was still easy I got another one for my 2017 f350 and it was easier than the set for my 2015

The air bags went on the truck very easily with no problems. They function as designed and are giving me and my family a comfortable and safe ride towing our 16,000 pound 5th wheel. Went on a trip from California to Idaho and the air springs performed without a flaw or concern. Will buy another set for my Chevy.

Installation went pretty much as described in the instructions. We mounted these on an F350. There are some brackets that did not come with our kit and go over the top of a cast iron stopper ear (strike plate) that fits at the top of the leaf springs and extends over the axle. There is one strike plate per side from the factory on an F350. By installing the air bags without the bracket, the airbag essentially sits right on top of these strike plates. On our truck, the ears or strike plates have broken on both sides. The parts to fix from Ford cost around $400. We have been calling SD truck springs for over a month and use guys are not responding. The kit should have come with additional brackets to cover the strike plates. We have talked to to local tire centers who install these kits and they have said this a common problem. We have been trying to get a response from SD Truck Springs for some time and have gotten no where so far. PLEASE BE WARY of ordering this kit!!! You

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!

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.

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.

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.

Rather disappointing, I’m afraid. Nothing fits, under designed in places and the fixtures lack quality. One winter in the Midwest or on the East Coast would reduce the zinc plated hardware bolts to a state of severe corrosion. The saddle under the lower bracket doesn’t fit the jounce bar. Even after sucking down the long 3/8” bolts until the plate deflects, there are still large gaps showing on the side facing the spring. I just could not align the upper and lower brackets to prevent the air bags from axial distortion. This partially disappears when inflated to 50 psi, but returns when reduced to the 5 psi unloaded mode. The four hole locating brackets, p/n 10880, are flimsy and deflect when tightened against the clamp bar behind the spring. And what is the purpose of the 4th hole? It is redundant and the bracket would deflect even more if it were used. Another niggling error was that the single metric bolt (M8 x 1.25) was incorrectly provided with a 5/16” - 18 locknut, so I

The bags work wonderfully, the bracket system provided for my application (2015 Ford F350 with factory in bed puck hitch system) was cumbersome and even with the heat shield put the one bag way too close to the exhaust. I used the bags and built my own brackets for directly over the springs. It works great and there are no obstructions. Overall great air bags but bad mounting system for my application.

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.

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.

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.

Very easy to install and work flawlessly. SD truck springs is a great company to do business with!

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.

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.

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!!!
