No More Rear Sag...Pics of Airbags Installed

Firestone Ride Rite Air Bag Kit.

I've been staring at my truck with the rear lower now for a couple months and I finally did something about it. The truck is lifted with a Rize 8" kit and has an AAL and 6" Tapered blocks but still was lower in the back. Measures from the center of the wheel well to the ground is now 50.25" but it was 48.75" give a take a smidge. I am running a whopping 10 lbs in the kit. Rides great and looks better IMO.

Here are several angles of the kit.

Looks good. I've thought about getting bags. But got the 5" lift springs instead.

Do you drive your truck in the rain? In fact, do you drive your truck at all?

It's damn clean! All of my install pics have blood on most of the new parts.

Those air bags are awesome ... no drilling and quick install from what I've read and heard. Looks awesome, Jesse ... but you have to go get that truck dirty!
