front air shocks

i just bought a 2001 f350 ccdrw 2wd. and today i notice two valve stems on the front bumper. they are located on the chrome part on the bottom at both sides. so i chased the lines and they went to the front shocks. there i noticed there is a bag inside of the springs. can someone tell me what these are for on the front. i can understand the rear but im confused about the front.

Probably an air lift kit. Does it have a big bumper or front hitch?

Well I think using air bags in conjunction with springs to achieve lift will yield a harsh ride.

Is there evidence of something like a plow or something? I know it's 2wd but I have seen some strange crap in my day. Those are basically the same thing as bags in the back for towing. You don't tow with the front so I don't know why guys get em. Just seen em before.

Just looked them up and there's a few company's that make them. Supposedly they are to help the handling of the truck when towing. Don't really make sense to me but who knows they may actually do just that. Google front coil spring air bags and it will pull up some sites with more info
