Default Air Bag Suspension

Another Newbie/Novice here with some dumb questions. Anyone here familiar with air bag suspension? Is it even feasable for a '96 2500 with a Cummins? What modifications would be necessary? How much should I expect to pay? What other measures should I investigate before I try Air? My Truck Rides ROUGH! Thanks in advance.

air ride suspension runs around $4,000 plus install
it's a good mod if you plan to keep your truck

I plan to keep the truck, but $4K+installation would make a good down payment on a new one. What are some simpler (less expensive) things I can have done that won't break my pocket book? Thanks in advance.

if you can do the work yourself its around $400 not $4000 not even a hard install comes with mounting plates and air lines. I dunno about you but I usually like saving $3600
