Question Firestone R4Tech Air Over Leaf System

Has anyone installed one of these on a Ford 2wd Dually?
1999-2004 Ford F350 2wd Long Bed, DRW, w/Dana 80 axle - Firestone R4Tech Air Over Leaf System - W28-760-0014 | $1,949.95
How do you like it? I was hoping that I could adjust the height sensors to lower the rear of the truck ??
Thanks,
Ron

That is a lot of coin for a lift system.

You using it for towing? Like an airbag kit?
I wouldn't think it helps the ride, unless they are aired down really low. And then your leafs are gonna take over most of the load carrying.

Yes. I would be using it to tow my 24ft race car trailer.
It is supposed to help the ride quality by changing to a much softer spring in the rear and getting rid of the overloads.
