I run airlift loadlifters 5000 with on board compressor, father in law has been using then since 99 on his F250 and he put 300k towing and he loved them

With the coil springs it seems harder to get everything level even with the wdh .
Shocks have rebound rates. Normal everyday shocks are 65%-45% in the compression/rebound rate. 50/50 shocks have the compression to rebound rate the same. You can also buy adjustable shocks.

I agree with the comments that it is hard to get WD hitch to level things out who Ram 1500 with the rear coil springs. Definitely looking for a solution to stiffen up the rear end. Considering replacement springs as well as airbags. Any thoughts on the best way to proceed?

Yes. Something like that. Not sure if you know, but does this require an on board compressor?

It would not require one but IMO you will find it handy to have.

I just installed the Firestone Spring helpers on my 2014 F250. Love them. I ordered from Summit Racing and they had a special going on that included a Free Firestone compressor. I haven't mounted the compressor yet, but I am going to run it on the front of the camper in the storage compartment. That way I can just fill them up and hook up!

You didn't ask about this,but take a look at the Timbren ses.I put them on my '13 Ram 1500.Made a world of difference in the sag and loaded ride.Don't even feel them when empty unless it's a big bump.You can find them for about $175.00 shipped.Worth the price difference IMHO.

Air bags let YOU control the amount of assistance you want, which IMO is far superior to the Timbrens which only give you what they deem necessary.

It is true that you can control the amount of assistance you want, however , my experience is that you either have them inflated full when trailer is hooked up or completed deflated with no trailer. Some will say 60 - 80 psi with trailer and 0-5 psi with no trailer depending on your weight and the ride you want to achieve. The point I'm getting at is that they are either engaged or not, which is the same as Timbrens, which IMO makes them operate the same. The differences is the lower price, ease of installation and maintenance free aspect of the Timbrens. I used Timbrens on my previous truck and was pleased. I have load lifter 5000 on my current truck and I am also pleased. Having used both options in the last two years , I speak only of my experience.
