Very smooth ride, not like hitting bump stop and haven't come into contact with them unloaded either
Look at these, adjustable, and perfect for leveling your ride when loaded and imperceptible when unloaded. easy installation.

I have had them for 5 years and they are great.

I have a good friend in the Oregon DOT who says the same thing as you wrote in your post.

Looks like they would work just fine, but I like the ease of adjusting my AirLift airbags with the onboard compressor and pressing buttons. Getting too old and lazy to crawl under the truck and using wrenches.

Most of the time the Cougar was loaded to about 9.5k. In two years with it we logged 21k miles some of that in the Rockies and the mountains of the north west. 2 sets of trailer tires, 1 set of truck tires and 1 set of trailer brakes. We are looking forward to many miles with the 8289WS diamond pkg. A good brake controller, e rated tires, air bags and a good hitch is a must. The 5.7 Tundra is a towing beast.
Towing update: Just got back to Texas with our 8289WS towing with the 08 Tundra. 1650 miles of towing from so Fl to Tx, avg 60 - 65 mph hwy 12.8 mpg. Had a great trip, would have enjoyed Florida more is there had been allot less rain. One more thing, I-10 through Louisiana is the highway from hell. More broken pavement, holes and uneven pavement than the law should allow. The highway was littered with vehicles with flat tires, broken axels and damaged front ends. 45mph through LA.

Presley01. Yes. And our roads keep me from encouraging rvers to visit the many sites in our state. It is shameful.

I take I-10 to work and for day to day travel, believe it or not it's alot better than it used to be. But it is still terrible and an embarrassment for our state.

Airlift bags have a lifetime warranty too, but take a little longer to install. But its worth the effort to control the level of support you want at any time. Glad the timbrens work for you.

We have traveled I-10 the last two Aprils and have personally witnessed a fatal accident each year; with body bags. All of this in bright sunshine and dry roads. And met some folks at an RV site that had the same experience. I-10 seems surprisingly dangerous for a flat, straight freeway.
