Default Leveling Question

Just purchased a 2012 ram 1500 and do not like the way that it sits. I will be using for tree work, hauling a 16 foot trailer and usually wood in the bed.

I have pondered a few different options

Go with shorter coil springs in the rear and install bags I can put air into when I am going to be hauling stuff.

Or raise the front, I am nervous about messing with the front being it is a brand new truck. (only 400 Miles)

I will not be changing any tire/rims for a while so I dont want to jack the front up and have it look funny. Nor lower the rear and have issue when I load the trailer and truck down with weight.

What are some of you guys doing or think would work best for my situation?

Thanks,

Chris

i had the dealer install a leveling kit before i evne picked the truck up. i can tell you that back sags a LOT when there is a loaded trailer on there! i have not pulled a trailer since i installed airbags, but have put a few hundred pounds in teh bed with no sag. i like it with the bags, even loaded she sits "level"
