Found two tractors: an Oliver 1950 with a Detroit diesel and an Oliver 80 Row Crop tractor. Had to pick one up in New Mexico and one in Kansas. Total weight was 14,800 lbs. for the tractors. I have a 2014 Dodge and with the new air bags installed, the truck ran and handled like a dream. Well worth the money.

The old springs were soft and the ride was saggy. Very uncomfortable when driving off-road in the desert with friends. Now the ride is much firmer and comfortable, no more bouncing and no more rear suspension arms hitting the chassis rubber stops. It also raised the rear of my SUV by almost 2 inches.
Installation took 40 minutes flat and my mechanic expertise is near inexistent. Very easy job, wonderful product.

I’ve had RideControl air bags on my Tacoma for 7 years and have loved them. This summer I added a WirelessAir compressor and noticed that one of my air bags had cracked and was leaking. When I called the Air Lift warranty department, they replaced both bags as well as airline, no questions asked. Hands down the best customer service I have ever experienced. Great products backed by an ACTUAL lifetime warranty that consumers can use.

I do search and rescue with my vehicle. It gets weighed down with equipment, but the Air Lift system levels out my vehicle and gives me better control.
After debating with my thoughts on how useful this product would be, I pulled the trigger and purchased an Air Lift kit for my tow vehicle. Installation was dead simple and only took me an hour. The proof is in the pudding with Air Lift. Do they work? You bet they do. I now have control over leveling the tongue weight load that my camper puts on my pickup. Along with reduced sway and the ability to level a load, as well as absorb shock – Air Lift also makes towing a safer operation. I can’t say enough about what this product has done for my peace of mind behind the wheel. Don’t second guess this purchase, if you are towing/hauling in a truck with spring based suspension – you need Air Lift.

I use my 2000 Dodge Dakota for a lot of hauling tasks. I’ve used rubber blocks in the past to carry the loads, but makes the ride very rough. I installed the Air Lift RideControl kit and I am extremely satisfied with the results. It holds and handles the loads great. I run 95 PSI when loaded and about 32 PSI empty. It improved ride and handling loaded or empty. Thank You.
I purchased Air Lift for my 2010 Ford F250 Super Duty gas truck. I tow a 26 foot travel trailer and the trailer kept porpoising and felt like the trailer was trying to drive itself. I have read several articles and researched this problem. The recommendation was that I install some type of air lift or air bag system. I reviewed several manufacturers for some type of suspension system and chose Air Lift because it has been in business for over 65 years and was first used in stock car racing. Installation was relativity easy with two people as long as you have the correct tools and drill bits. I also installed the air compressor and mounted pressure gauge along with the ability to fill and/or deflate the air bags while sitting comfortably in the cab.
I was very skeptical that this kit would make any difference. Boy was I mistaken. First thing I noticed was that the trailer and truck were able to be leveled by filling the air bags. This allowed for more stability while driving the truck. There is still some porpoising but it is just a fraction of what it was. My wife who is always the passenger noticed that the ride was smoother and more controlled. She said that it felt stiffer.
All-in-all this is the best purchase I have made regarding towing my travel trailer. If I replace the truck I will install another Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 kit along with the air compressor.

I bought a truck camper for my Dodge Ram Quad 1500 last November. As the truck is only a “1/2 ton,” I was careful to select a lightweight camper within it’s limits and with a correct center of gravity. As I was pushing the limits of the truck, I added your LoadLifter 5000. The truck/camper is now easy to level and handles well even on rough roads. I had intended to add an on-board compressor expecting the springs to lose some air periodically, but that has not been the case. I have recently checked the air pressure after three months of cold temperatures and found the springs had not lost even one pound! Great product. Far exceeded my expectations. Thanks!

This is my 2012 F250 Superduty with 3000 lbs of wood pellets in the back. I inflated the airbags to 80 lbs, and the truck handled like it was empty. The airbags also help us haul our 30 ft Montana fifth wheel camper.
Yesterday I installed a set of Air Lift airbags, which is a pretty easy deal and took about 2 hours including some breaks. I’ve used them in the past on an old tow-rig as a teenager and was happy. I installed the air lines and schrader valves in the shield for the tow harness, they’re out of the way but easily accessible. As an avid cyclist, I always have a bicycle pump in the truck and ~10 quick pumps per side and the truck sits level with the boat on it. The nice thing about the air bags is that you don’t have to modify your suspension so that it’s stiff all the time. When not towing, just hit the schrader valves and let the air out and the truck drives normal.
I have used your product since 2009 Jan. I put a set in my Dodge 2009 ½ ton at 12,500 miles, and work in the oilfield where the conditions exceed the unacceptable, from 80% gravel and mud roads with excessive ruts, bumps and totally cruel conditions. I have since miled the truck out at 62,985 miles and now have got a new 2011 Dodge crew cab and installed the new set in at 745 miles. I am running these at 25 psi on air and will switch to nitrogen as soon as the opportunity arises. Your product works and works damn well—be proud of it. My next truck with rear coils will have them again.
These air springs are awesome. Inexpensive, easy install, high quality and best of all… they work great! I’ve towed my boat, put two yards of heavy wet bark mulch in the back and lumber for a deck and my F-150 truck didn’t even crouch. I’ve done this on a regular basis for 4 years before my air springs and I never felt more “in control” of my truck than I do now. This was a great addition to my truck. THANKS Air Lift!!
I just purchased a new 5th wheel RV and I own a 2012 Ram 1500 with a Hemi. The 2012 Ram has coil springs. So I purchased the Air Lift 1000 bags for the extra support. My truck factory weight setting is 8700 lbs. My RV is 8005 lbs dry. I put around 30 lbs of air in the bags and my truck rode great while pulling the RV at 70 mph. Also have these air bags in my 87 Grand National which helps push the rear-end down for more traction while running the 1/4 mile at Royal Purple Raceway. Would recommend this product to anyone who could use the extra lift.
The kit arrived in good shape and the instructions were very easy to follow. Only a basic socket set, drill, and wrench where needed for the install. It took me about 3 hours to install both sides. I just did the basic set up without the on board compressor and ran the two valves to the back bumper by the license plate for easy access. I love the ability to raise and lower the back end of the truck depending on need. This leveled out my 30ft 5th wheel perfectly. We recently did a 1200 mile round trip vacation with the trailer and the ride difference is night and day!
I recently purchased and installed an Air Lift 1000 system into my ’95 Toyota 4Runner. Let me start by saying I don’t write letters, reviews or testimonials even when prompted to do so, but in this instance I just had too. This is the best $90 bucks I’ve ever spent on my Runner, I just wished I’d done it sooner. I had the typical 4Runner saggy rear end and simply didn’t have the time, money nor expertise to do a lift. So I looked for alternatives and found your product online. I installed the Air Lift system in about an hour and a half. After it was installed and inflated all I could do was smile, it completely changed the rake of the truck , lifting the rear end 4 to 6 inches. It looks awesome now and the ride’s stiffer and much better on Vermont spring roads. So thanks, thanks for making a product that works and for a reasonable price.
I have 2004 Trailblazer, before I installed your airbags my single Polaris RZR would put it on the bump stops. Now ride sits level and tows like a dream.
You have been a great help through this whole process. I will be using your company for years to come as long as they have people like you working there that truly understand the customer and can help them out with their problems.

Great job on the quality and easy installation! The kit I used was the Air Lift 1000 on a 2004 Envoy. I have a hitch extension for a 2 place bike rake and then put a 20 foot boat behind. This moves the ball back 12” or so. The standard coil spring just are not working. The air lift does the job perfect.
You are a Michigan company and I am a Michigan resident. KEEP UP THE GREAT JOB!
I had bought an Apache Truck Camper to go on my 2012 Ford F150 4×4 and it had the springs pretty well flattened out. I knew it needed some help and researched adding overload springs online. After reading the testimonials on LoadLifter 5000, I decided this would best suit my needs. When it arrived, I read the installation guide and looked at the videos on YouTube and went ahead with the installation. It was fairly easy and had it done in about 4 hours. I double checked everything and applied some air to check for leaks. All looked good. I put the tires back on the truck, removed the axle stands and put the truck back on the ground. I finished airing up the air springs and was surprised. It only took about 35 pounds of air to level the truck up. I was more than satisfied and knew I had made the right decision. I’m now ready for some hunting and fishing trips!

This is the second purchase of an Air Lift product for me. The first was for my 2003 Silverado sport truck (kit worked awesome). The second kit was LoadLifter 5000 ULTIMATE. My landscape truck is a 1990 Ford E-350 and is always hauling around equipment, and so I needed something to help level out the ride all the time and then also be able to adjust the suspension to haul away heavier loads such as yard waste, top soil, bark, and compost. The kit has straight forward installation instructions with a few helpful photos that help make the installation a breeze. I found the kit to be a huge benefit for varying load options and most importantly my safety and the safety of others. The rig drives stable on turns with less roll and is less spongy on bigger bumps. Even on the highway it drives better. I highly recommend any air spring system from this company.
