nope, but a good set of shocks will help, I noticed no difference with out bags and bags set to 5psi but your truck will ride a lot harsher then mine hence the thicker spring pack..

The Air Lift bags I have were on my 2000 Silverado 1/2T and now on my 05. Had to get new brackets. Have the onboard compressor.

Slime brand 12v compressor is about the size of a kid's lunchbox.
No genny needed. Yes it can take 10 minutes to fill a full size tire BUT
it inflates those little air bags in only a minute or 2. Same for bike tires.
Cost $20. Weight a pound or 2 at most.
It works for me. (I only bring my genny on those few trips with no hookups.)
