Default Advice on adding airbags in my suspension

I am thinking about adding airbags in my rear suspension to eliminate the sag when I tow. I've looked at the Air Lift 1000 and 5000. I've also looked at firestone's airbag suspension that would replace the re springs. I don't tow a lot, but I'm annoyed with the sag when I tow or I have a load in the bed of my truck. Any advice from those with experience with airbags would be appreciated.

Airlift 1000 bags. $87 delivered from Amazon. I tow a lot and have had mine for three years now. Simple install with maximum benefit.

Thank you @h2oman. I was leaning toward the 1000's because if the price and ease on installation. Glad to hear from someone who has used them. Did you add a compressor to it as well or just use the schrader valve?

Same situation and thinking the same solution, but with a 4" lift probably 2" in the rear. Has anyone used Total Load control? Would either accept the lift?

DeVoTee I've read that you can use spacers with the airbags on a truck with a lift.

I just ordered a pair of the Airlift 1000's from Amazon for $81.10. I should be installing those bad boys by the end of the week.

I'm running the air lift 1000 with a compressor on board with the remote. Works great.

Did you do the wireless remote on the compressor?
