Do these suspension mods make sense for towing?
Here's the deal, I have a 2006, F250. PSD w/FX4 package. Now, the main reason I own this truck is to pull our travel trailer through the hills of southern Missouri.
The truck does a good job of pulling the unit I have now, 30' / 8000lbs. But I'm thinking of getting a somewhat larger and heavier 5th wheel, still well within Ford's towing specs for my truck, but still...
Many of the roads I have to use are one S curve after another, they should make you buy a ticket like at the fair. With all this in mind I'm contemplating the following; air bags on the rear axle, 1 1/4" or 1 5/16" sway bar front and back. I'm also, if I put on the airbags, going to put on a viair compressor and tank to make airbag adjustment easier.
Additionally I'm seriously looking into the Banks exhaust brake, but that's another thread.
So what do you think?
