Love my Firestone airbags!!! Took all the bounce out of our F150 when towing. I use a bicycle pump with built in air gauge. 12 pumps each and done. 10k miles this year and very happy. Found 35psi to work well. Too much air EQ hitch isnt doing its job.

Use to pull with a Tundra, installed airbags and it was great, problem is when your not towing it feels like you need a chiropractor after each speed bump

Let them down to 5# when not towing and you won't know they are on the truck.

I have LoadLifter 5000 Ultimate on my Tundra. Run 7 psi when not towing and the ride is as stock.

hey i fitted Firestone air bags to my ford F250 dual cab which helped however it did not arrest the front to rear 5th wheel movement, i changed the pin box to a Trailair which has its own airbag and a shock absorber i set the pressure at 60psi that worked a treat with my Flagstaff

Hey guys, those of you who have installed AirLift 5000's, recheck your documentation on the minimum PSI to run in the bags. I could be wrong but, I thought mine said NOT to run below 10 psi.
