Default Alternative To Coil Spacers ( With bonus of being able to Adjust )

For anyone doing anything in the front of your ram thinking about options for the rear personally this would be my suggestion to all of you

I have had this system on multiple Gmc/Chev trucks and the bonus of being able to add 0-50 psi in the bag or 0-1000 Lbs of lifting power

This is great for any of you like myself doing Bilstein 5100's in the front and wanting a solution for the rear that's not a fixed solid coil spacer

With the bags you can add air if your hauling a 650lb quad/wheeler on Monday a 1500lb speed boat on Tuesday and 400lbs of 2x4 wood on Wednesday

My point is they are adjustable for any situation and you can keep the level look no matter what your hauling and all you need is a small hand held pump and a tire / air pressure gauge (my hand pump was 6" very small pen style)

THE HAND PUMP I USED ( HAS BUILT IN GAUGE )

Did any body install an air spring plus the original coil spring to raise the truck when needed I think that will be cool.One problem with air bags inside the coil they will not raise any car if loaded they have to be inflated first and will only retain factory height

Very true it's not so much to raise it or give any lift, its more to take the weight when there's a load to maintain your ride height so your rear doesn't squat lower than the front giving reverse rake when loaded
