AIR BAG KITS

what is a good air bag setup to run im looking for a kit to put on my dads 06 dually. we have been looking at the fireston ride rite setup. i think it was 3-400$ without a compressor. just wondered if that is a good kit or not or what is good. also what kind of compressor would be good. thanks for any input.

Is his truck sitting at stock height? Firestones auxiliary overload kits are decent. The brackets and setup dont look all that killer but they do the job.

I run the PacBrake kit and really like the set-up. Firestone's will work better if he has an in bed hitch.

Fill them as needed.

You might take a good look at the PacBrake brand, I think you'll agree about the bracket being real stout, plus it's powder coated.

I will say the Firestone's are good, but I like the set up from PacBrake better.

I've had 2 Firestone kits, one on my Dodge and one on my Ford, like them both, GET the compressor kit, it's worth the money. I deflate and inflate my bags all the time and the compressor makes it easy.

Firestone Ride Rite was easy to install. Big differance when towing. GET the compressor. well worth the money. Easy to add later if you want. I added a 5 gallon air tank that has really come in handy.
