    Most use an air bag and that may help a little if you keep a few pounds of air in it, otherwise it would be the stiff springs and the shocks. The RS9000 is adjustable and can be softened, you may have gas charged but more likely hydrolic and those are really stiff. I would stay away from an air shock and use the air bag and the 9000s or if you do not sag at all just the 9000s

    Try throwing a couple of hundred pounds of dead weight in the back.

    Beautiful North Carolina

    you don't want to hear this, but the solution to your problem is "FORD".

    We test drove a new GMC and could not believe how rough it rode. The Ford was so much better ride that it played a big part in our decision.

    I have an employee that sold his 2000 Chevy 3500 and bought a Ford after riding in ours.

    If you want to see how any vehicle rides, bring it to Statesville and drive from Exit 42 North to Exit 55. I don't thing there is a worse part of road in the country.

    The Ford crosses it like a Cadillac without a load, the GMC bounched the rear wheels a foot off the ground.

    Good Luck

    I have an F 350 4x4 we pulled all the leaves from the springs except 3 and installed an air ride air bag system, now the truck sits level ( 7"lower in the rear ) and rides like a caddy, it also has an onboard compressor so we have air. We have pulled a 47' triple Fountain boat and trailer 18000 lbs with50lbs of air in the bags
