Default Air suspension

I have a 2011 Ram 1500 5.7 Hemi Quad Cab. I am looking for an air suspension system for towing trailers. Has anyone heard of or used the TLC Total load control system. I am looking for reviews or comments on this system. I think.......

Thanks for any input

Default Total Load control - not total support

I have a 2014 Ram 1500 after doing a lot of research we decided on using TLC air springs and have had mixed feelings.
I tow a 8k 29' TT and was looking to get the truck back inline with out squatting. TLC looked like the best option and it might still be, but my issues came from customer service.
Like othes that I have read since I ordered these air springs online I never got a confirmation and then after many phone calls to answering service i go a call back several days later saying yes we think your name looks familiar.
I received the springs and installed as per the very limited instructions- I think they limit the instructions so to relieve themselves of any liability.
I used the Airlift wireless compressor system which works great - don't use the cheap plastic airline or fittings that comes with the springs!
After our first trip we had both air springs fail for different reasons and after contacting TLC I was told wow never seen that. I asked questions about install to confirm I got it right and they never answered them directly if at all. I was then told I might need to modify the truck to make the install "correct" - they advertise these bolt right on and no drilling or anything- well guess not.
after spending several $100 later to get a spring replaced and shipped along with modifications to the truck they do work now but it was not due to the customer service at TLC. My machine shop was much better at solving the issues. would I recommend them- yes but be aware you will not receive any assit from the manufacturer on installation or shipping as they use USPS and very unpredictable at best.
I have 3000+ miles on them so far and now slightly more confident

This may be another option for you if you haven't already looked at them, but I installed a set of the Airlift 1000 bags on my truck for cheap, $80. Routed a seperate line to each bag so that I can control each independently. Don't have as many features as the TLC bags(which I am sure is good product too), but are more cost effective if your on a budget.
