this is the mcG spindle kit with roughly 1000 lb in the bed. You probably won't need airbags.
The only things I do not like about the spindles are the fact that they are made of uncoated steel which = weight and rust, and the fact that they increase the front track width. Otherwise, the ride quality is great, and no alignment issues after 5,000 mi.
