Default Pacbrake airbags

Just curious if anyone here is running the Pacbrake bags. I bought a set for my 16 350 and I'm less than impressed so far.

Hell, I've never even heard of them. I installed Firestone on my 2018 Ram earlier this year.
But AirLift Ultimate is the top of the line product right now, with their internal jounce bumpers.

They also now have a Ultimate "Plus" option out now, with all SS components.
FWIW, Firestone makes the airbags themselves for AirLift.

I went with the latest, greatest Airlift 7500 on 2017 F350 6.7 SRW CC LB. The deal with this model is they take very little air to get the job done and are 50% more capable than the 5000 series, larger bellows etc. 2nd truck I have installed Airlift on and happy with the product.

I was told by a friend that these Pacbrakes are a great product and I would really like them but I think they make my platinum 350 ride like a flatbed 550. I'm currently working with the company on the issue that they claim they have never heard of before but I think I'm wasting my time.

I removed my stock bump stops and installed the Sumo Springs on my 11' F250. It is a dual stage spring etc. I also haul 30 gallons of fresh water in the bed to wash the boat when we are done. The truck only sags 1.5 - 2 " at the most with the boat hooked up. The springs do not touch the stops when unloaded so you still have a soft ride.

how much air are you running in them unloaded?I usually run about 3-5lbs in mine unloaded.second air lifts I've had,first gen w/ no internal bump stop and now the latest w/ bump stops.
