Thread: Air bags-help

  1. #1

    Default Air bags-help

    I have a 01 1/2 ton and am looking into replacing my superspring helper with airbags. firestone and air lift both offer kits, however, the kits for standard duty seems sub par as to product and mounting detail. But, for 1500HD models and up they both offer the actual air bags. Air lift has said I could use the 5000lb lift bags as long as I have the proper clearances....which I do. It will however void any warranty, BFD! Just want to see if anyone out there has used air bags in a similar situation as mine. I haul heavy loads in bed, tow and snow plow with the truck.

    Thanks for the help

    If you're asking if anyone has used air bags in addition to the stock springs, yes. I only air them up when hauling heavy loads.
