2012 Nissan Titan Air Spring Suspension Enhancement and Weight Distribution

Question:

We tow a travel trailer and still have sag using a Weight distribution hitch. Would using the Firestone ride-rite air bag system help with correct the excess sag? Also would we have to have the Weight distribution hitch reconfigured once the airbag system is installed? Does the airbag system counteract with the Weight distribution hitch?

Expert Reply:

The Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs - Double Convoluted - Rear Axle # F2355 is a confirmed fit for your 2012 Nissan Titan. This is an excellent system to assist with leveling your truck to get rid of that excess sag you referenced. This kit comes with manual inflation valves so you can use an air compressor to adjust the amount of pressure in your bags to level your truck. If you want to add a compressor, you can have the adjustability from the cab of your truck using part # F2158. This will give you a gauge as well as the ability to increase or decrease psi at the touch of a button.

You will have the option to reconfigure your weight distribution system if you see that need, however the air springs will help level your truck. If you system is rated correctly, then minimal if any adjustment will be needed to the WD system and your air springs will simply help level your truck for better ground clearance and a smoother ride. The two systems work together to provide leveling and support.
