What are the best air bag brands?

I was wondering what the best air bags are to put on my 01 f-250. Those of you who have air bags on the rear end do you like them and any thoughts on install tips. I am looking to get some in the next month or so. Thanks for your input.

Ride rite from Firestone. They are the best IMHO.

I have these: Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Spring Kits: FIP-2330 - summitracing.com

Summit had the best price I could find from a reputable source.

Oh heck, if Raul carries them, get them from him. He is a sponsor of this site so give him the first shot.

I have had as much as 6900lb on my rear axle with the air bags and they had 80psi in them to keep the truck level.

Those sound like they will work for me then and I will most likely get them from Raul, any sponsor of this site has got my bussiness. This site is great!

I would agree on the Ride-Rites! I use them with my 5th wheel toy hauler and they are awesome... Oh, and thanks for supporting the site vendors!
