my dad has a 08 CC LB who makes bags for them??

well my dad got his 08 CC LB about a week ago and the we just picked up our 36ft gooseneck trailer in IN from detroit MI and it squads my dad 250 down quit a bit with nothing in it, but not enough to hit the helper springs yet and going over rail road tracks and stuff it bottoms out the truck. the guy at Rance Aluminum told us we should get a set of air bags to help with the squat.

so my question is who makes a good set of helper air bags for my dads truck???

how do u guys running them like them?

what one are you guys running?

sry its so long

Ford Super Duty F250 / F350 Firestone Air Bags 1999-04 - Suspension Air Bag Helper Springs Here's a link for the Firestone.

Riderite also makes them but most all the kit's out there use Firestone bags.

I like mine a lot. Helps out a lot for pulling my heavy trailer. Note that although they list the kits as bolt on with no drilling, don't count on it. I had to do a lot of cutting and grinding to fit mine with my 5th wheel/gooseneck hitch. I've also seen them welded on but, I'm not too fond of welding on my frame.

I have an air ride set up on my 08 front and rear from firestone for better ride quality and I also have the compressor and interior spilt controls , works wonders.

I have a switch set up from Firestone that has a gauge in the center and 1 switch on each side for a total of 2 switches ( front/ rear) The front kit was for a different application but the guy who installed them knew wich kit to use on these trucks , and the 08 has the same frame as 99 up as long as the 08 is a 250 or 350 , the 450 and 550 have a straight frame rail over the rear axle ( or so I was told)
