I need to install air springs on the rear end of our F350 diesel. What do you "experts" recommend. I don't want to spend a fortune and want something simple to operate. I pull a heavy fifth wheel. Thanks! I will look forward to some input!

I installed Firestone air bags on my Dually. I air it up to 60psi when towing my 5'er which makes the truck handle much nicer. Bought them at Summit at 800-230-3030. Very reasonably priced.

I too installed the Firestone Ride Right bags to level out the truck. 15# when empty, and I have been running about 40# with 5er hooked up. It does keep the 2-piece driveshaft from vobrating during exceleration from a stop.

I have the FX4 option so I had to grind a notch out of the brackets a bit to get them to fit right.
