Super springs or timbrens???

I am looking for some help or advice on keeping the rear of my truck from sagging when towing. I am leaning towards super springs or timbren just for the fact there is no real equipment maintenance and once they are on I am done. I have also heard that airbags aren't that good for off road use. I use my truck for hunting and we are on some really rough roads and I have heard that can cause airbags to pop, tear, or come off. What would you guys recommend or use? The rear of the truck will drop with the trailer about 2-3".
Thanks

Will.

I have timbrens and there nice when towing, but on a bumpy road they'll beat the crap out of you. I don't know about the super springs.

My bags were always fine off road I don't think most of our trucks can articulate enough to pull a bag out of it's mounts ? heck I even forget to loosen them sometimes when jacking the truck by the frame to do suspension mods LOL

after a redid my lift to full springs I had to redo my bag brackets and now I can run a center locating stud that will let the bag lift from the mount if need be


that being stated I have had bags on trucks since 2005 and never have had to do any maintenance

Just because I have a banner that states "Moderator"
does not mean you can't argue with my opinions !

Another reason I like these cups is I get truck with air bags in the shop often and once on the rack the bags just get stretched to far...so I have to remove the bottom bolts.

Other shops may or may not take the time to do this..
