The air bags only raise the ride height of the rear of the truck...it doesn't transfer some of the tongue weight to the front axle (and to the trailer axles). The front axle weight should close to the same hitched up or unhitched...can't do that without W/D bars. The sway bars are for more than windy days. What about an emergency lane change for example?
