Anyone run the Ride-rites or other airbags?

Would you know what I mean by "Image is everything" when towing? If you butt is sagging, the cops think you're overloaded. I would think the airbags would make a lot of cops think the load looks "legal" if the truck looks leveled out with airbags.johndear720 said:Duke, the Firestone RideRites if I remember right really helped the F150. I had a 105 gallon tank, tool box, and usually 500 lbs of junk so the truck was loaded empty. Pretty much set level with no trailer. Add 1,000 of tongue weight and it was sagging bad. About 50 lbs of air would set it level again and it pretty much drove the same as empty other than struggling on the hills with the extra 7K in tow. You must have a load on your one ton!! I run about 4K on the pin with my F350 with a 110 gallon fuel tank in bed and a box full of junk. 4K sets her about level. I have considered pure air ride for the F350 though. At least it wouldn't be *** high empty all the time! Guess it all depends on what springs the factory saw fit to include. I think you would be happy with that set of 5K "super duty" bags Firestone has for 3/4 and one tons.
There's an extra thick leaf in the spring pack and a 1,000 lb increase in GVWR.scooch said:duke what is the difference in the rear suspension with a 3500srw vs 2500HD?
