Rear Helper Springs

Does anybody have any suggestions for rear helper springs for my 250? I pull a gooseneck trailer with a small backhoe on it and don't like the sag it has when loaded. Airbags are also an option but I'm pretty sure they are quite a bit pricier. My '06 had add-a-leafs and seemed to work fine.

Firestone ride rites. Less than $300 and the best solution to your problem.

I agree with the air bags. If you add springs to it, it will mess up your ride when you are not pulling. Having bags also lets you adjust how high you need to get it level. I would also suggest to get the onboard air compressor. It will double the cost, but I feel it's worth it. You can look into other brands, but there all about the same. I think Firestone bags are the best out there.

94% of all Dodge Cummins trucks from1992 through 2012 are still on the road today..... The other 6% made it home.....

If it still runs when you delete it, you don't need it!
