Best air bags

2003 F350 DRW 4x4. What is the best brand of air bags for the rear? I haul a 42’ fifth wheel. Truck pulls it very well but a little squat to it. Like to level it out with air bags. Whatever I get I am going to do an on board compressor. What’s your thoughts? Thanks in advance.

In the camper forum I'm a part of (Forest River's) they all say the Firestone Ride-Rite are the best all the time. Looks like for our trucks it's a manual system but you can add on-board air.

Air Lift Ultimate 5000 is a nice setup

General note:
For all those wanting a premium silicone sealer Kubota 70000-73764 is the best your gonna find. This is a hybrid gray silicone that uses solvent rather than acid to start the curing reaction, this makes it safe for aluminum and and any surface that involves coolant.

I recently installed the Air Lift 5000 with the wireless EZ mount compressor. Happy so far. The preset pressure feature is a nice touch, as well as not having to route anything into the cab.

I have had 2 trucks with the Air Lift 5000s on them, love them. Both had the onboard compressor and manual air pressure adjustment in cab with guage. I won't own a truck without them.

AirLift 5000 with internal jounce bumpers and WirelessOne compressor here, really like the remote with high/low memory settings

With the remote it won’t allow you to go below 5psi, I usually run 7 unloaded and 80 when I have the 43ft toy hauler hooked up

IME the airlift and Firestone bags are very similar in quality
I have been running the airlift wireless for years and years with no issues.
I just recently upgraded bags to the 7500 7" they are definitely a heavy duty unit
