    Default Input Needed on Air Bags for Lifted HD

    Got an '07 Crew Cab HD with a 12" lift and need to add a set Bags on the rear for the Toy Hauler. Have been looking at 5,000 lb Bags that Air Lift sells for about $230.00 and I can also add the 6" spacer that is needed for lifted trucks. Anybody use these or have any input on these bags or is there something better than those on the market.

    I used the Lift rite air bags from ez ride concepts and they rode great made my 04 2500HD ride like a caddy. I had a 8" CST lift with bilstein 7100's and atlas leaf springs. http://www.ezrideconcepts.com/

    Many of the bags are made by the same suppliers. Firestone use to be a large supplier of bags, not sure if they still are. I use to run the bags on my lifted trucks for the same reasons as your wanting. The one thing I would suggest is to get the kit that has the gauges and adjustments for each side. It will let you control the left and right independently of each other, or together. Also make sure to put the compressor in, not being able to add air when needed immediately is a major pain in the rear. The bags made a huge difference in the towing attitude of the truck. My biggest trailer was a 35' tag car hauler, and fully loaded you could barely tell it was there.

    Thanks for the input. I have the compressor, and set up for incab, but just want to get some decent bags for my truck and the lift and want to see what people are using and are happy with. Thanks again!

    im using the firestone air ride on my f 250 6 in lift. only thing i had to do was fab an extra support bracket cause my kit did not come with the proper set up i asked for. got some money back on that. my bags mount on the inside of my frame rail pretty bad ass. protect my bags from road debris and blow outs. not sure if its offered on gm or dodges but if you have a ford your golden

    looks like kit 2250 is the one for you. with that lift you should call them for sure. with a 10 in lift you may want to get some airbags from a big rig and fab up some platforms. that would be bad ass

    I use the Hollow Rubber springs.
    Bolt on in minutes, and only work when you need them.

    They offer spacers to correct for your lift. Or you can fabricate some boxes and leave a 1" space unloaded.
    They way to roll IMHO:
