My 2500HD started sagging when I bought my new 5er, My old one was almost 400 lbs less hitch weight. I was looking into air bags but I was not quite sure i was not convinced as to everyone that has had them that I know around here say they started leaking within the first year or 2. After doing much research I have decided to go with the Roadmaster Active Suspension Roadmaster Active Suspension Kits | Helper Springs | Overload Springs I think this will help with my problem, there is a review on youtube and check it out before you make your decision. I found them for 315.00 including shipping. i hope this helps.

Honestly it sags more than my Yukon did, which had auto ride suspension and would pick up the back end. The setup tows excellent but the sag bothers me visually. What is the best option to correct this as we are investigating 5ers and I am not sure if this will get better or worse with a 5er. What I have looked at has a pin weight less than 2k.
the leverage of a bumper tow is a whole lot greater than a 5er therefore more apt to sag

We had to put the bags in for the sag. We have the same TT as you and the same TV. It helped tremendously. Truck rides very level now with as little as 10-15psi in the bags. We recently just bought our 5er so we are anxious to see what it will take to keep the rear up.
