    Default Who has installed air ride suspension and is there a big difference

    Mine rides solid and rough without a trailer. I can live with it loaded.

    I have seen more than a few postings on this topic and I am curious. The negative remarks came from non Topkick and Kodiak owners saying "I had a friend who installed airride and ... wasted his money." I have yet to see an owner state it was not a great idea.

    So I am curious. Who has installed air ride? Was it an improvement?
    Was it 2 link or 4 link in the rear? Was it rear only?
    Has anyone installed the air-ride cab support kit?
    Has anyone installed air ride seats in conjuction with another airride component?

    What air-ride component made the most difference?
