For the 2015 Ford Transit 150, 250, 350 and 350XLT models, Air Lift Co. has custom-engineered two air suspension options that can handle heavy loads and towing needs.

Air Lift’s LoadLifter 5000TM air spring kit works with the existing suspension to deliver up to 5,000 pounds of load-leveling capacity, according to the company. Air adjustable to keep vehicles stable, level and comfortable — whether loaded or unloaded — this kit is designed for the needs of users who want improved handling while eliminating sag and reducing suspension wear.

Easy to install, these LoadLifter 5000 kits require no drilling into the frame and include roll plates to protect the air springs from sharp edges, according to the company.

The LoadLifter 5000TM Ultimate kit adds an internal jounce bumper for enhanced ride comfort and suspension protection, says the company. The LoadLifter 5000 Ultimate is adjustable for a safe ride, loaded or unloaded.

Air Lift offers wired, wireless and automatic on-board air compressor systems to provide one-touch or hands-free control of the air springs.
