LANSING, Michigan - Aftermarket suspension manufacturer Air Lift Company has released the new heavy-duty LoadLifter 5000 and LoadLifter 5000 Ultimate air spring series to support and protect the Ford 2017 Super Duty F-250 and F-350 4WD pickups.
LoadLifter 5000, Air Lift's heaviest-rated air spring kit, is specifically engineered for Super Duty pickups, which are designed for hauling and towing some of the heaviest loads on the road. The new LoadLifter 5000 Ultimate for the Super Duty line offers all the benefits of the LoadLifter 5000 but with the addition of an exclusive internal jounce bumper, which provides added shock absorption and extra protection for heavy loads.
The LoadLifter series works with the vehicle's existing suspension to deliver up to 5,000 pounds of load-leveling capacity and is air adjustable to keep vehicles stable, level and comfortable whether loaded or unloaded. Each kit includes exclusive Air Lift roll plates, which protect the air springs from sharp edges and increase load capacity up to 10 percent.
The LoadLifter 5000 and LoadLifter 5000 Ultimate kits require no drilling into the frame and install in three hours or less. For convenient inflation and deflation of the air springs, Air Lift offers wired, wireless and automatic on-board air compressor systems.
All Air Lift products are backed by an industry-exclusive lifetime warranty which covers the entire contents of the air spring kit, and the company also ensures satisfaction with a 60-day money back guarantee on load support air springs and on-board compressor systems.
