We have pulled a 47' triple Fountain boat and trailer 18000 lbs with50lbs of air in the bags
    Hey Mike & Clint,

    I have a 98 dually ive had since new. what i did was drop the front 3" with spindles, and the rear 5" I used spring shackles and had the rear springs de arched some. Gas shocks all around and it rides nice and smooth, plus looks good. No hop or bounce on rough roads. Still can haul heavy loads and it tows great. Also have a hard tonneau over the bed which adds 100 lbs or so. To get a real radical drop I would go with the air bags. Depends on what you use the rig for.

    Hey Dock How's the Baja running? We have been really swamped up here just painting a 42' MTI race boat that should run in the 180's, have to repaint Ettore when it gets repaired, hope things are good with you and your keeping busy. Keep the drives in the water!!!!!!!!!!! Mike

    I have a slammed 1 ton (CHEVY)
    If you add bags, pull out or cut the overload springs. It will ride like a caddy. Also on board air system

    Check these guys out:
    I did a lot of research and this place is going to be one of the first stops when I pick up a new truck. It is a full air suspension in the rear that is similar to what the big rigs use. They also make an onboard compressor and level sensor that automatically adjusts the pressure depending on the load.
    Check out the video on their website. They also sent me a videotape that was very interesting (free of charge).

    Happy Shopping!
