air bags for traction control

i was wondering if air bags can be used as both ride control for trailers and also traction control for axle wrap in high power applications.if anyone has any input please feel free.

The airbags do not mount in a position that would let them help reduce axle-wrap. You need a good set of traction bars for that.

Yes airbags can help reduce the up and down suspension cycle, but they will not reduce axle wrap. The only way to do that is with traction bars.
