Description air lift ultimate 5000 inside view

The Air Lift Load Lifter Ultimate 88396 is one of the new exclusive air spring kits from Air Lift Company. This air bag kit will include all of the advantages of the standard Load Lifter 5000, with the added benefit of an internal jounce bumper.

The jounce bumper is made of closed-cell urethane foam in order to eliminate rough ride and provide an air cushion that will absorb shock effect and provide additional stability while towing or hauling heavy loads. This bump stop also gives the driver ability to run the air springs at zero PSI without causing any harm.

Like the Load Lifter 5000, this Ultimate Series kit will give your vehicle up to 5,000 lbs of load leveling capacity. It is also backed by a lifetime warranty and a satisfaction guarantee. With most applications being NO-DRILL, installation is fast and easy, with quality components to ensure that the first installation is the last.

  • 5,000 lbs. Level Load Support
  • Eliminate squatting, sagging, dipping
  • Internal Jounce Bumper for Added Stability
  • Lifetime Warranty
  • NO-Drill Installation
  • 60 Day Satisfaction Guarantee

Awesome product, easy install, Everything was in the box, this product made a night and day difference on how the truck deals with heavier loads. I definitely will be purchasing another bag kit for my next truck

Nice product. Install is a bear by yourself. Took me 2 days. Would recommend using a truck lift if available.

We install the Load Lifter 5000 Ultimate w/ Jounce on most the the vehicles we install air bags on. These are the best and most complete kits we have found.

We have installed these for years, we believe they are one of the best kits out there. They work great with the B&W hide-a-ball 5th wheel hitches. The kits are complete and not hard to install.

Air Lift kit works great on my 2015 F250 when pulling my 5th Wheel Camper! Kit came complete, instructions were very detailed and helpful. Installation was easy on the passenger side and a bit of a challenge on the Driver's side as noted in the instructions. I would rate the kit as 4.5 out of 5 stars, with the difficulty that I had with getting a seal on the Driver's side air line the only negative. Overall great product!

These bags where a great help on my 2011 Super duty F250 . They are a bit hard to install by yourself. I do recommend getting a buddy to help if one is available. Over all great support for my 5th wheeler keeping the truck nice and level going down the highway.

our product worked exactly as advertised. I am very pleased with the air lift bags, and have used them several times since then. My only complaint is this: The description says something like this "bolt on installation, even with gooseneck hitch", what it didn't say is that you basically have to remove the gooseneck hitch (because the springs use some of the same factory bolt holes in the frame). Not a huge item to me, but it was a surprise to me

The installation was harder than I thought. It took me about 7 hours by myself in my driveway. Getting the truck lifted off the springs took me along time. But the install was clean and works great. I did not install a compressor. The air fittings are great. I thought I would have to use tho old barrel method but it was great just to push them in.

This is the 3rd kit I have purchased in the past few years for our Ford Super Duty trucks. It has been a great product. Assembly is straight forward and worked out good.

my bags worked fine, took me a little longer to put on, but i'm older and not as spry as I once was, all parts came on time, would highly recommend this product and really loved the services and will continue with sd truck in future also.

Excellent product. Does take some modification if you have Ford factory puck system. Overall very pleased. Made heavy towing much more stable. I highly recommend this product.

Hi. The kit had all the right parts for my 2015 F250 4x4 with Crew Cab with a factory 3" to 4" lift. Also had the factory fifth wheel unit. Had to drill and use additional washers(not supplied) between the frame and the factory fifth wheel brackets. (If you want - I can send pics of this so you have an idea of what I'm talking about.) This was to prevent the large upper bolt from loosening up because of the bracket flexibility. I used the on-board air compressor without putting in the external air fill fittings. It took me a while (I'm over seventy) to get it together but there isn't any leaks and it definitely makes pulling a tongue trailer easier and smother. I have a compact utility tractor that I haul around or some times pickup a vehicle and I don't get a tongue drop like I used to. The goose neck trailer I pull doesn't even sag when hooked up. Next year I'll have a fifth wheel camper that is 35' to haul around. I have fuel capacity of one hundred gallons and with the Air Lift s

This is a great kit! I installed it on my 2016 Ford F350 DRW 4x4. Ordered the wireless remote kit with it and it's honestly the best thing I could have done for my truck! It really helped with towing my 36 ft 5TH Wheel and helped bring the rearend back up to stock hight. I can really tell the difference when towing and the best thing is that I don't get oncoming traffic flashing their high beams at me anymore! If your at all mechanicly inclined, you can install this kit yourself with ease. Great price and great customer service too! I highly recommend this kit.

Makes a huge difference when towing my gooseneck horse trailer after a 4 inch drop. This evens out the truck and makes for a safe and secure ride. Couldn’t have asked for anything better.

Installation was straight forward and very well documented in the enclosed instruction/installation manual. Working by myself it took about 3 hours to complete including installation of the optional wireless air compressor with the vehicle on jack stands. Even though I had an issue with the control valve (which Air Lift promptly replaced) it does not reflect on the quality of this product hence 5 stars. I would also like to add that the staff at SD Truck Springs are very knowledgeable and pleasure to do business with. I would not hesitate to do business with them again.

I pull a 40ft gooseneck with some heavy loads and the airlift 5000 was a great add to my 2015 F250. My F250 rides level, handles great with less drag and my tires no longer have signs of irregular wear when fully loaded. That's very impressive with an 8" suspension lift and 37" tires.

Directions were vague but after 2nd time putting the air bags together all the bolts matched up and went on the truck easily. All the air lines and wiring was pretty straight forward. They work great. I have a 1 ton srw ford with a arctic fox 990.

Easy to install, no problems at all. 15,000 miles since I put them on, so far so good.

This was exactly what I was looking for. It fit perfiect and was easy to install. It did take a little more time to install than what was on the site, add an extra hour only because I was doing it alone. Works great and really does make a difference on the driving while trailering. Loaded it up with a load of 2500 pounds right after I installed it and took it off road, delivering a water tank. Worked great and really made the drive much smoother. I would recommend this kit to anyone and SDTrucksprings is great! Thank you and Happy Holiday's

I put these on a pathetic 2011 F-250 with 3 leaf rear springs - you let the tailgate down and the truck was overloaded. I put a set of these on a 1/2 ton Chevy some years back, so I already knew they worked. You cannot overload these under realistic circumstances. The heaviest of slide in truck campers weigh a bit over 4,000 pounds -.within the rating of these bags. If one is handy at all you can put these on yourself. Just take your time (4-6) hours and know you are going to donate some skin in the process. I cut my OEM jounce bumpers off with a sawzall - saved a bunch of time and frustration. The bags are a deal if you start pricing upgraded springs. My local spring shop wanted $450 to add 1 leaf to each side in the rear.

These air bags did the trick. I needed some way to level my truck when I pulled my 5th wheel RV. I now inflate them to 30# and I know my truck and RV are level. I had them installed by the Ford dealership so I'm not sure how easy they were to install. I am thinking about installing the wireless compressor for convenience.

Nice product. Easy install. I haul heavy daily and like the added ride/load control. Definitely would recommend and would purchase again for my next truck
