Where did you get your Airlifts for $100? Everything I am finding is $450 +.

Just got my wireless one and bags from amazon. Both have a $50 mail in rebate right now. $603 shipped for both. I am a prime member, so I don'tknow if that makes a difference.

A buddy of mine just bought a F250 to replace his F350 dully and had the same problem . He went to a spring shop and had an extra leaf added ( it was actually the same Ford uses for the 350). He said it made a world of difference.

Amazon. But I bought the manual version. I use my home compressor or a portable.

The dodge has coil springs so the kit is very simple

Adding airbags does not mean that you are overloaded, they will level your truck so your headlights are not blinding oncoming traffic and will also give you a better ride.

You get the F350 springs on a F250 if you order the Camper Package. The rear will still sit 2" lower due to the shorter axle block but drive line, suspension and frame will be identical.

I have the Firestone Ride Rites on my '95 K1500 Chevy Pickup and I love them. They firm up the ride when towing my 24ft travel trailer and, coupled with good tires, weight dist hitch, and sway control, I have no sway issues at all.
