Help with Air Bags

I have a 2012 F250 all stock and my rear suspension sags when I hook up my 30ft 5th wheel. I have a set of overload springs on the rear but it still sags some. I would gues that when the trailer is fully loaded it is between 1800-2000 lbs at the hitch. I was looking at air bag kits and was wondering if anyone has any recommendations to help level it when pulling the trailer without beating the hell out of my kidneys when not loaded. Thanks

Airbags are desigened for your exact situation. You will need to deflate them when not towing or you will pee blood! As long as they are deflated when not in use you will never know they are back there. I ran the firestone bags rated at 5k and they handle biz when towing or hauling wieght.

Firestone or Air Lift air bags will work great for you. If you want to avoid having to go to Chevron to fill them up you can get the on-board air kit from either company for more $$$. My old man had a set on his 2010 Chevy 3500 dually duramax and it wasn't long before he got sick of having to find a place with air. Having it at the tip of your fingers makes life a little bit easier for ya.
