I have the firestone air bags. They level the load great but the ride sux. Even when I am not towing, whenever you hit a bump it feels like the rear of the truck has no shocks. It's like sitting on a seesaw and dropping a 500lb weight on the other end. At this point, I'd rather have the softer ride of the factory shocks. I thought about putting the factory axle bumper stops back in versus the taller ones that came in the air bag kit.

I tow a 4500lb travel trailer with a weight distrubiting hitch and a 5500lb boat.
