It's an Air Lift. It was on the truck when I got it. Looks simple to install, and the nipples for putting air in come out my rear license plate so it's pretty discrete.

I have a 4" pro comp and think it rides hard as well as looking like the front springs have some sag in them. I had an 01 I put a 6" Rough Country on and it rode way nicer than this one and the factory ride setup. I have the fireatone ride rite setup , seems to ride the same whether I leave it empty or up around 20psi. Could go higher PSI but it's just going to make it stiffer.

Sold 01 350 6" on 37's and mild mods, 00 X 4" on 35's, 02 f350 4" 35's modded from fan to drive shaft, ridin the 03 with nose conversion with 125k and counting upwards slowly.
Never had CNC's poo on any of it, never will.
