Default Air bags??

I'm thinking about putting some air bags on the back of my truck. I put a leveling kit in it, and now with any weight in the back or pulling a trailer it sags in the back, lower then the front. I searched and seen a thread about Air Lift 1,000's. It looks pretty simple. My question is, is there a heavier air bag kit I can install? Brand names??

The Airlift 1000 bags are definitely a good bang for their buck, you can't really go wrong with them. Here's thread I posted that has a few pictures of my truck with and without the bags if you're interested.

http://www.ramforumz.com/showthread.php?t=142443

The Airlift 1000's are definitely limited though as they are only an in coil bag. If you want to go to something more heavy duty with up to 5000 pounds of level capability Total Load Control (TLC) makes some great bags as well. They are a fully external air bag. TLC is a site vendor on Ramforumz and provides discounted prices quite often. They are about 3-4 times the price of the Airlift bags though...

ps i just put in the Total Load Control on my 2010 Ram 1500.....dont bother they suck......had nothing but problems from the start...leaked from day one. PS had them installed by my mechanic to make sure done right. After buying an air line kit from them and a small compressor that didnt even reach the rear bumper i was even more frustrated after I called company. Apparently a new machining house screwed up a bunch of plates.....sounds fishy to me. Then just this past week went away on vacation to Poconos leaving from Long Island. Well I arrived at my campground only to find my bags not only moved they attached themselves to my muffler. Called company and fighting for my refunds......no luck so far. Just ordered Air Lift 1000's I hope this is the final solution.....i am pissed off to say the least. Could be out over $600 if no refund is provided. DONT BUY

I've never heard any bad comments about TLC other than above. Airlift also has 5,000 lb external bags. Firestone has kits as well...

I just installed the Air Lift 1000's & am very please with them. For the cost to quality ratio you can't go wrong. They bring the back end back up to where it should be after your all loaded down, with a bed load & the trailer on.

I am thinking of going with these.
No bag, no compressor or air lines.

http://www.sdtrucksprings.com/index....125&x=101&y=13

They claim 50% "capacity" increase.
Available in regular and variable rate.
They also have kits that drop the rear 2", and come with replacement shocks....

I heard a while ago that TLC was working on brackets to be able to use the bags with a 6" lift. Might be something worth looking in to...
