Work trucks: New load support solutions from towing safety experts Air Lift Company are available for the suspension system on 2009-2015 RAM 1500 half-ton pickup trucks. The LoadLifter 5000(tm) and LoadLifter 5000(tm) ULTIMATE are industry-leading air spring kits designed to improve ride quality, handling and safety when towing and hauling heavy loads.
To provide additional support for the new five-link-coil rear suspension system of the two-wheel and four-wheel drive RAM 1500 models, Air Lift engineered two heavy-duty towing options featuring application-specific brackets and air springs. Air Lift adjustable air spring kits ensure that weight is properly distributed to all four tires to maximize vehicle stability, safety and comfort. Working with the existing suspension, air springs improve braking and steering, eliminate squat and sway and maintain ideal ride height.
According to Chip Rabey, group marketing manager, Air Lift, "A spring placed inside the coils, which is the typical air spring solution for a coil sprung suspension, wouldn't provide the level of support that can be achieved by using these heavy half-ton kits."
For heavy-duty or frequent use, Air Lift's LoadLifter 5000 kit (#57365) features durable, fully-adjustable air springs, which work with the existing suspension to provide up to 5,000 pounds of leveling capacity. For even more ride support, and to withstand the rigors of commercial duty use, Air Lift's LoadLifter 5000 ULTIMATE kit (#88365) provides all the benefits of the LoadLifter 5000 with the addition of an exclusive shock-absorbing internal jounce bumper to protect vehicles with heavy loads and eliminate jarring on rough roads. Virtually maintenance-free, LoadLifter 5000 ULTIMATE is adjustable for a safe, comfortable ride, loaded or unloaded. Both kits, which are currently available for pre-order, are easy to install and are backed by Air Lift's exclusive lifetime warranty.
"Our company is dedicated to providing towing safety, comfort and convenience for a wide variety of trucks, and these kits will provide those important benefits to 2009-2015 RAM 1500 owners," said Kevin Mehigh, president, Air Lift.
For convenient air spring inflation and deflation from inside or outside the vehicle, Air Lift offers a variety of wireless and wired on-board air compressor systems. Air Lift air springs and related products can be purchased at most truck accessory retailers and online outlets.
