Couple of questions about air ride?

Who has the best deal and is there any reason to pay more for a Firestone kit over an Air Lift kit?

I have a Firestone kit on my '09. Am very happy with it. Bought their heavy duty kit which included everything. Compressor, bags, airline, and switch/gauge setup. Don't know what the Air Lift kit comes with but the Firestone kit wasn't very expensive. Added two three gallon tanks so I could run onboard air and my air horn.

When I looked into bags with my last truck I chose the AirLift over Firestone because they use larger bags. Larger bags = less air for a given load.

Both are good bags though.
