Air Bags
If I wanted to use air bags to lower the front of my truck instead of buying drop springs, what all would I need other than the air springs themselves? I think I would probably just start with a manual fill set up, eventually get some assist springs for the back and just fill all four up when I need to take something to the dump or something. I dont really need an on board compressor or anything, I dont really tow anything, just haul some furniture every once in a while. So I was just wondering what I would need other than the bags? (This is just for the front, I know I can buy an assist kit for the back with brackets and stuff)

I have used air shocks on my old '56 chevy 3200, 1/2 ton long bed, for when i had to do hauling, but, they may not work in your case

I'm not sure how the suspension is set up on the 07's but the 05's will need cup style brackets and a shock relocating bracket.

Air bags, mounting brackets aka "cups", fittings, DOT air line, valves (minimum of 2 per axle), tank, compressor, switches (min of 1 pr axle double throw) some 16 ga wire, thread sealer, and some good tools.
btw, I am considering going air in the front also...I use it in the rear to assist in towing, but may swap that over to 4 link & full time bag set up. Cant decide...

I would agre with Greg. I would also just buy a lowering kit from Air Ride or another good company. Usually they come with everything to lower the vehicle. That would give you the best ride possible
