Truth be known, the addition of the air suspension actually hurts the official payload ratings a little bit due to the added weight of the components ...
I find it hard to believe that the "air" suspension weighs more than coil or leaf springs. I know it isn't just air but I would still think the compressor and tanks would weigh less than heavy metal springs.
