towed this weekend need airbags?

I was towing this weekend and it was about 12,000 pounds with the tractor attachments trailer etc. The rear of my truck really sagged and really bothered me. I need to get 5 inch rear blocks ever since I leveled it but what else can I do to keep the back end from sagging? Thanks

yup some bags would fix this, my buddy has a HUGE in the bed camper and put bags on his 07 6.0 and it doesn't even sag alittle now. It used to sag bad and effected his steering and control of the truck.

The steering was terrible towing with the back sagging as much as it did, the truck pulled awesome no complaints there. Who makes a good bag setup?

I have the firestones and they are nice. I actually took them off the f350 and put them on the f250 couse it needed them more. I tow a 14,000 lb gvw dump trailer maxed out with the f250 now and its pretty level. Thats running 100psi in the bags. You will like them.

My settup does not have the compressor, though you can if you want. Mine just has the air lines with the inflation valves.
