AIR SUSPENSION KITS FROM AIR LIFT COMPANY SUPPORT 2015 FORD F-450 SUPER DUTY TOWING NEEDS With a best-in-class maximum 31,200-pound tow rating, the big and burly 2015 Ford F-450 Super Duty is built to tackle the toughest noncommercial towing duties, from fifth wheel campers to large livestock and boat trailers. Now, to increase towing safety and ride comfort for this serious workhorse truck, the air suspension specialists at Air Lift Company offer two durable, easy to install air spring options. Air Lift’s LoadLifter 5000TM air spring kit for the F-450 (#57349) provides a cushion of air and works with the existing suspension to deliver up to 5,000 pounds of loadleveling capacity and eliminate sagging and bottoming out. These fully adjustable air springs keep the F-450 stable, level and comfortable whether loaded or unloaded. For maximum shock protection, the LoadLifter 5000TM ULTIMATE (#88349) eliminates the harsh jarring of rough roads while leveling the F-450 when towing or hauling heavy loads. Featuring rugged, durable components, both of these Air Lift underframe kits work with most in-bed hitch configurations and can be easily installed in approximately two hours with no drilling into the vehicle’s frame required.
