Coil Spring Air Bags...?

Hello all,

Does anyone use air bags in there coil springs? I normaly tow with are 06 Silverado Crew Cab and have no problems. But last year the kids want to bring some friends, so I towed with our 01 Suburban (which has coil springs) and it pulled fine but the backend drop realy low. Well this year we no longer have the Suburban, it was replaced with a 03 Yukon XL (also has coil springs). To avoid having the same problems I would like to install some air bags in the springs and would like some feedback on what works for others.

all info would be helpfull, Thanks

Air bags

Check out the TIMBREN web site. They have bags that do not actually hold air but provide the leveling needed in your case. They only come in to play when the vehicle is loaded so they don't affect your ride when empty. Also no air to worry about leaking out.

Timbren bags

As far as I know they make these for every vehicle. They attach to where the rubber stops are on the frame and sit on the axle. Easy install.
