As in when a trailer is hooked on(need LESS tongue weight) or are they loaded on the truck itself ?(need more spring)

The air ride can be part time, the added leaf is rough always. Do you have an equilizer hitch?

Ditto what Spib said. Love my firestone airbags.On the truck when i got it,never have another truck without them. Bags for hauling on truck and load leveler bars for the enclosed trailer.Only way to go.Add-a-leafs will knock your fillings out when you're trying to cruise.Im old and fat and like a cushy ride
