Default Leveling a truck with air suspension

Hey everyone, traded in my 09 Sport for a 13 Limited 4x4. I wanted to know, for those who have air suspension, has anyone tried to level the truck with the Bilstein 5100's or a leveling kit? I just want it level, I don't plan on increasing wheel or tire size or anything. Thanks in advance

i don't have one but I assuming that since the new air suspension is design to auto level it self(to a factory level), if you would put spacer in the suspension to change the level,.. the factory air suspension would re adjust itself puting it back to the same level it was before you install the level kit,..

It'll be hard to put Bilsteins on, considering the truck doesn't have struts

Hahaha yup!

Right now you're out of luck... If you planned on leveling or lifting air suspension was not the right choice. As far as I know there's nothing available yet to change the air suspension but there are companies working on it.
