Having the compressor & switch really helps with unhitching my TT. When unhitching, (With TV off) I just run the tongue jack up enough to lighten the WD bars. Once they are off, I undo the coupler, start the TV, the AirLift switch kicks in and drops the pressure in the bags and the truck drops on it's own. I then pull forward, and I'm ready to finish leveling the TT from front to back. No muss, no fuss.

I came across this after I started a different thread about towing with a lowered vehicle but your comment about trying to add springs to a "leveled" vehicle is what makes me think this is the same problem I am trying to solve.

I have a 2003 Dodge RAM 1500 with a 2/4" drop to level it. The rear is done using a flip kit and although I have found air bags for the vehicle it isn't clear if they would work with the flip kit.

I contacted firestone and they said they don't work on lowered trucks. I'm still waiting ot hear back from air lift but since it mounts to the leaf spring in back of the axel I am hopeful it will work on my setup.

Which air bags did you order? How is your truck leveled?

These air bag suspensions, would it work for my truck towing a 5th. wheel trailer? I have a little bucking on some roads. Not wanting to spend 12 to 15 hundred replacing trailer end.

I got the air lifts. Mine bolt from the bump stop mount to the axle. Don't know if they'd work on a lowered truck or not. Ted, don't know if they'd help with chucking, I never really had a problem with it to begin with.
