Advise airbag/suspension

I have a 2011 Greyhawk towing a Jeep for the first time. Noticed a lot more rock n roll with trucks passing. Anyone have experience with Firestone kit 2458 mounting inbound on the frame and the other is Air Lift co. Kit 88242 which mounts outbound of the frame. I feel the Air Lift would have more stability. Any suggestions/experience/advise/knowledge of these two brands (or other) would be appreciated. Thanks you.

Thicker rear anti-sway bar worked good for me and less maintenance than air bags.

I installed a Henderson Rear Trac bar to help with rear tail wag.

The rear trac bar keeps the leaf springs from moving side to side and keeps you going straight. I also have rear Firestone air bags which help with load on the leaf springs.

My bags from Airlift lasted from Ohio, through KY and "popped" in TN. Stay with the name brand bags. Just my experience.

I have firestone airbags, an action van 3 inch lift (prior owner) and bilstein shocks. I see fairly little improvement from the airbags. They create a bouncy ride in my case for anything over 55 PSI. Do little to nothing for sway. Your experiences may vary.

The biggest improvement in handling in my case was adding the Helliwig rear sway bar for RVs.
