On 'why' bags, or 'which' bags? Firestone and AirLift both make brackets for lifted applications.

Carli makes bags but there 850 witt no compressor. That seems like a lot to me. I even though about those sumo springs but my bump stock distance to axle is greater too

Our bags are more expensive given their design. We utilize a tapered piston design that will not change your ride quality when deflated where the above-mentioned double-bellow bags will make the ride quality more harsh even when empty. Further, your full springs travel 12" in the rear and our bags will travel 12" as to not limit ride quality or travel. The cheaper double bellow bags will limit your travel to 4-6". Just food for thought. We're not getting rich off the bags, they're extremely expensive to produce!

Personally, if I had already spent top dollar on a Carli lift, I would pony up and get the bags that are designed to work with the lift. You can make one of the other kits work, but you'll sacrifice performance somewhere.

I do not believe that the AirLift or Firestone bags make your ride worse when they are empty... if they technically do, it is not noticeable on my truck. With only 5lbs of pressure in them, they are easily squeezed by hand, and are doing very little (if anything) to support the truck, and therefore do not effect the ride by any noticeable account.

thats a lot of travel for bags impressive. I havent noticed a more harsh ride from any kind of bag when properly deflated for empty loads

Bumping it back up. My airbags are on, just need to get a compressor and maybe a tank ordered. I may just order a simple compressor for now, and new a more elaborate setup later.

Any suggestions on a simple compressor just for airing the bags up?
