I have been driving my new pickup for the last few weeks and I am loving it! Drives great and towed the horses this weekend and it did fine other than squatting the rear end. What is better to add to the rear end to stiffen it up, stiffer springs, or an extra leaf?

air bags. if u have a 1500 it has coil springs in the back so air bags are your best option. I read a thread yesterday with a link to a web site not that i can find it now. but they were $85 and added 1000lb extra payload. hope this helps.

I have. Just installed it. Same ride quality until you need air and even then it's not bad at all.

So should help with the sag when my trailer is on. Looks pretty easy to install to.
