With your 2012 Ford F-350 Dually 4x4 you are most likely towing some big loads. My recommendation is to use the Air Lift LoadLifter 7500 XL Air Helper Springs - Rear Axle # AL57596 for the greatest load leveling support or the Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Ultimate Plus Air Springs w/ Internal Bumpers # AL89396 which have the extra security of the jounce spring inside. Either of these options are custom fit for your vehicle and are compatible with in-bed hitches in case you will be using them with a gooseneck or 5th wheel.

I also recommend using a compressor system to assist with the ride at any given time because you want support when towing and not as stiff a ride when not towing. For the best compressor system, I recommend the Air Lift WirelessAIR Compressor System for Air Helper Springs - Wireless Remote Control # AL72000 which doesn't require any routing into your cab. If you don't mind routing the air lines into your cab, then you can use the Air Lift Load Controller Compressor System for Air Helper Springs- Heavy Duty - Dual Path # AL25856. I've attached videos to assist with these installations and functions.

Thanks for the quick reply Is there a reason why you recommend the Airlift over Firestone? Thanks

Airlift has a lifetime warranty on the brackets as well as the air bags themselves. The internal jounce spring of the 5K option is also a patent that offers an extra layer of protection if the air bag were to be under the 5 psi minimum for any reason.

Firestone makes a great product but only warranties their air bags. If you prefer the Firestone brand, I recommend the Firestone Ride-Rite Red Label Extreme Duty Air Helper Springs - Rear Axle # F2703 for the higher capacity and the # F2597 for the slightly lower capacity. These are good quality, I just prefer the AirLift for the reasons listed above.
