The reason you're gonna want a set of airbags for your truck is quite simple. If you're towing a heavy trailer, like in our customer's case, with a fifth wheel or you haul a lot of heavy wet in the bed of your truck, the back of your truck's gonna sag down. Now it's not gonna allow for your factory suspension, especially your shocks, to be able to absorb the bumps as you're driving down the road. They'll be more compressed and they won't be able to have full range of travel to give you a smooth ride. Also, you're gonna find out that as your back end comes down, you're gonna have less weight on the front of your truck because you're not gonna have the steering, the handling, the braking, and the safety that you're looking for.
