. just my 2cents if you are looking for the most cost effective way to clear bigger tires.
Thats what I need to know, how tough are these setups, hundreds of thousands of 18 wheelers use air bag suspensions, are the ones for our trucks anywhere near as tough..... my truck is an '04 with 8800# gvwr a leveling kit wont work because the truck always has a load in it and already rides level, but instead of the front being raised to level the truck, the back springs have been sprung, because when I unload the back it raises very little.
