WORK­ING MAN’S LEVELING KIT

A CLOSER LOOK AT AIR LIFT’S LOAD LIFTER 7500 XL

Diesel World - - Contents - BY MIKE MCGLOTHLIN

As pay­load and tow­ing ca­pac­i­ties for newer trucks con­tinue to rise, own­ers are look­ing to haul more cargo than ever be­fore. But as the real-world of­ten re­minds us, just be­cause a truck is rated to han­dle a given amount of weight doesn’t guar­an­tee ev­ery­thing will go off with­out a hitch (no pun in­tended). Ex­ces­sive tongue weight, an un­leveled pay­load, or an im­prop­erly po­si­tioned load can lead to a truck that squats, rides un­com­fort­ably, and suf­fers from poor brak­ing, steer­ing, or head­light aim. To elim­i­nate (or vastly re­duce) any of the lat­ter in­stances from oc­cur­ring, thou­sands of truck own­ers have be­gun to turn to air­spring sus­pen­sion sys­tems.

Air Lift re­cently de­buted its strong­est air spring kit yet: the Load Lifter 7500 XL sys­tem. Of­fer­ing up to 7,500 pounds of load-leveling ca­pac­ity, it’s de­signed to sup­port the largest loads on the road. We stopped by Flynn’s Shop in Alexan­der, Illi­nois, where a ’17 F-350 was be­ing fit­ted with the Load Lifter 7500 XL. Read on to see why this is the new king of the hill in af­ter­mar­ket air spring sys­tems.
