they just go in place of your springs, your shocks mount to the side of you springs to the spring/shock mount, I have wanted to do this for a long time cant bring my self to spend the money. I wonder if one of those lowrider companies sell the bags at a cheaper price

im an idiot. for some odd reason i thought our trucks were a coil over design in the front. stupid. air bags are nice if you can afford the time to wait for them to air up/down. plus, with a lot of trucks in cold weather, you have to be very careful about moisture getting into the bags.

I like the idea, but not 100% certain the ride will be what I am expecting it to be.

^true. i think to take full advantage of the ride, the rear would have to be converted to a full air suspension as well. plus, i wonder how the bags would handle the weight of the diesel engine. probably would have to run a lot more pressure than with a gas motor.
