I put the 1000 on and they failed fairly quickly. I decided to get a set from TLC Suspensions and they have made a huge difference. I have also since replaced my shocks with Bilsteins. The new shocks ride better than anything I have ever had. The two of them together makes for a great ride.

With my setup (see sig) I'm using Monroe Load-Adjusting rear shock absorbers (shock with coil spring integrated). They are reported to add 1000lbs of resistance. They ride stock unloaded.

When I drop the 870 lbs of tongue weight without WD hooked up, my truck sits with a very slight forward rake. Front wheelwell dimension goes from 36" unloaded to 36 7/8". Rear drops about 3 inches.

When I engage my WD front goes back to unloaded 36" dimension, rear goes to 1" below unloaded.

Absolutely no porpoising and a great ride.

If I ran airbags I would have to keep a spare set with me, don't trust that system.

Tuftruck also makes a range of HD springs for the Ram that have had good reviews.

At $89 shipped and super easy installation I went with the shocks. One less thing to worry about. Your mileage may vary.

Put them on! it will be a night and day change for the better!
I'm running load lifter 5000. With all the Hemi horsepower and a smoother ride you will ENJOY towing your trailer. You might have to re-adjust your hitch (down). I ran the airline up to my center console and use a $9 Harbor freight 12v compressor to inflate to 65psi. Once parked, I de-flate to resume the smooth Hemi ride. Then before hitting the road, inflate them back up.

I didn't want to do anything that would permanently alter the truck. (shocks, springs, etc.) I only to the Grey Wolfe 20-25 days a year. I use the truck like a race car the rest of the time and didn't want to change the handling. I pump them up when I tow and de-flate to 10psi when I'm not and the truck rides factory fresh

I had Firestone air bags (inside the coil spring) and had two problems with them..first you must air up to max pressure BEFORE you add load to the truck, then air down to your desired ride height. Second I could not stop air leakage at the top of the bags. I replaced the Firestones with a set from Timber Grove that are much more substantial and have commercial air brake type fittings and tubing. More money, but IMO, much more quality and capacity. Wish I bought these first.

Installed the Airlift 1000 and am impressed with the improvement in stability. Very simple install (less than one hour). I also put the wireless compressor system. Lifetime warranty and not very costly.

Both Equal-I-Zer and Blue Ox told me to set the pressure to 35psi before installing their WD hitches.
At some point during every day you suddenly realize nothing else productive is going to happen the rest of that day. For me, it usually occurs around 9 am.
