Air ride suspension for better ride

Has anybody ever put an air ride suspension like the kelderman to improve ride not for lifting the truck? Kelderman has a kit for the front for about 1375 that looks interesting but was wondering how much it would really improve ride? Which would be better front or rear?

I have the rear. It helps some but it's not worth the cost. Their four link rear on the other hand, would be sweet. For the front, I would swap in a coil axle setup from a 05+. You would improve ride, turning radius and brakes. The cost would probably work out about the same after you sell your old axle.
