How hard are they to install and how sturdy are they...I will only be towing a 4800 pound car in a 20' enclosed trailer so nothing really heavy but my understanding is I can air these up when I tow and level the load, empty trailer or loaded with the car.



(BTW the trailer is not hooked up there, I only backed up to it at that point)

Pretty easy really and when I tow my 12k 5th wheel, I take the bags up to 90 psi and it rides like a dream. When I'm not towing, I drop them down to about 20 psi and it's just like my stock suspension. Here's some after pics. I didn't take any of the install.

Valve stem install...I thought they had a control box up in the cab with a air pressure gauge?

If I had to do it again, that's the route I would go. It was too much to add that, so I went the cheap route. I am looking at the kits now, and can add it after the fact, but I am also considering buying all the fittings and what not separately and making my own. I already have the gauge and compressor.

Just took a couple of hours. The lift will make it 10x easier. I had to use a jack and jack stands which added some time.
