I run air shocks on my '77 Lincoln. I haven't installed the hitch yet, but do plan to tow with it. I may have to buy another jet boat.

I have bags on my Dodge Ram . Installed air shocks on my wife's Ram ( in case we need to tow with it). It drives better with the boat than mine, much to her amusement🤭

I will say I put a set of Pacbrake air bags on mine and was less that impressed with the ride. I will say they were great to deal with and took them back. I guess after having a set and thinking about it i just can't see how any of them could give you a good ride as you are taking away the travel.

I don't notice any difference in ride quality when the bags are deflated and they can be adjusted from the cab if the ride is too stiff while towing. Air shocks are cheaper and easier to install.

Sumo springs worked great towing my 37' Active Thunder. They replace the bump stops.
