Helpful Expert Reply:

Yes, you can use airbags on your 2016 Chevy Silverado 3500 with the B&W # BWGNRK1016 installed.

I highly recommend the Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Air Helper Springs # AL57338 that has included hardware that is designed to be used on trucks with fifth wheel hitch brackets; the only thing to note is that you will need to drill into your Silverado's frame in order to install airbags.

The LoadLifter 5000 allows you to adjust the air pressure of each bag individually from 5 psi to 100 psi in order to get as level as possible, and there is an optional Compressor System with Remote # AL25980 that allows you to activate the compressor from inside your Silverado's cab and will automatically keep your air pressure above the 5 psi minimum if it happens to drop too low.
