Customer Q&A - Air Lift 88338


Will this kit work on 2017 GMC Denali 2500 HD with the factory fifth wheel package and is it a No Drill Kit?

Asked
This kit does fit the 2017 GMC 2500HD Denali and it is designed to work with the factory 5th wheel package. This is a no-drill kit so the installation will only involve bolting the kit on to the truck and running air lines.


Does the Loadlifter kit offer an option for automatic load leveling?

Asked
Air Lift has a few compressor options that will maintain air pressure. Air Lift air compressor kit 72000 has the ability to program two memory buttons with air pressure settings, that will maintain a set PSI. If you are looking for automatic load leveling, Air Lift Smartair compressor system part 25415 will automatically adjust to changes in load and road conditions and inflate / deflate your air springs to maintain a specific height of your truck.


2015 GMC 2500hd (srw, diesel. Does the kit require drilling into the frame of the truck? Average amount of time for a competent person to install this kit and the amount of time required.....AVERAGES

Asked
Air Lift kit 88338 only requires drilling if you have fifth wheel hitch brackets along side your frame rail. The kit includes U-bolts for mounting the top brackets. If you have 5th wheel hitch brackets along the side of the frame, these U-bolts may not be used and you will have to drill 2 holes as noted in the instructions. The kit takes on average 2-3 hours to install for someone with general automotive experience. Air Lift has great detailed installation instructions with pictures that are available on our site.


Where can I buy the mounting brackets for the 5000 lb bags

Asked
Air Lift does not sell just the mounting brackets for the 5000 lbs air bag kits. They have a lifetime warranty and if you have a problem with one, Air Lift will replace it. They did sell kits without air bags in the past, but have moved away from doing that.


Does is fit under the frame and on top of the axle ?

Asked
Air Lift Air Spring kit 88338 mounts where your existing jounce bump stops are located. The air spring kit mounts under the frame and sits on the axle.


Will this kit fit on my 2013 chevrolet 3500 crewcab diesel 4 wheel drive single rear wheels without having to drill holes?

Asked
Yes, Air Lift kit 88338 will fit a 2013 Silverado 3500 CrewCab Diesel 4 wheel drive with single or dual rear wheels. The kit is a no drill kit so you will not have to drill.


The Air Lift Company has been developing air spring suspension products for over 50 years. The original product, a rubber air spring inserted into a car's factory coil spring, was developed and patented in 1950.

The versatility of Air Lift air springs were proven during the early years of stock car racing. Air Lifts were used by most of the stock car racing teams for twenty years or so until the racing suspensions evolved to more sophisticated systems. The Air Lift Company sponsored cars were tough competitors on the NASCAR Grand National Circuit. The Air Lift Company has the longest history of product development dedicated solely to the development of light vehicle air suspension products.

First, in the 1950s, Air Lift pioneered the use of air spring inserts in coil spring suspensions. Then, in the 1960s, Air Lift introduced the use of sleeve-type air springs on pickup truck suspensions. During the 1980s Air Lift started using air helper springs on motor homes and ambulances. Street rods and lowered vehicles were the target in the 1990s. Today's products are an evolution of Air Lift's breakthrough development programs applying the use of air springs in light truck and motor home suspensions. Air Lift has won more SEMA awards for air spring development products than any other company.
