Air Shocks?

I had a S-10 back in the day and I had a set of airshocks on the back, they really picked up the rear of the truck and gave it a lot more hualing capacity, just wondering if anyone has these or seen thee for the Super Duty's

Don't know if they still make those. I don't suspect they would do much for a 1 ton truck. They worked good at lifting an extra couple hundred pounds. If you need to level your truck when loaded you need an airbag kit. They do the same thing but will handle a much bigger load.

I have the Ride Rite airbags from Firestone to help level out the load from my 12k lb toy hauler. Not sure about air shocks...

I'm sure I just need to go ahaed and get the air bags, the air shocks are still made by Monroe and Gabriel but I have'nt seen any for my truck, and most of the claim that they support up to 1200 pounds. I'll vouch for that because I had the back of my old S-10 loaded with sod and it didn't squat a bit with the air shocks filled with air.
