Air Ride or Sumo Springs

I'm thinking of giving my 1999, 30 ft, E450 rear springs a little help.

I can use air bags with the lines to run and checking air often or just slip in the Sumo Springs and forget them.

It sits level side to side so I don't need to adjust for that and the height seems ok.

Any comments from users of one or the other ?

I installed the Firestone Ride Rites on my Class C unit a couple months ago. I had a couple reasons why, I was leaning to one side and not level front to back. My unit is a 1989 so it has some years on it. It was sagging to the point that the levelers wouldn't retract. After I got them installed I can level it both front to back and side to side, it made the ride better as well and feels more stable on the road. I can't comment on the Sumo springs since I have never been around them.
