NOPE, just sits level when not towing, the full length running boards make it look lowered, but the suspension is pure stock with the exception of the rear shackles.

Rides just fine without any air in the airbags, but does drop about 1"-1.5" but doesn't get down on the overload springs. I put 40#-45# air in the bags to level it out.

Nothing else except the air bags. I did fab the longer rear shackles to make it sit level when not towing.

Our 2007 expedition with a 2014 195BH, pulls much better and better mpg than the 2005 explorer V8 we had before. Also swapped out the mirrors on the expedition for factory style towing mirrors.

I am a firm believer in anti-sway bars and weight distribution hitches on everything but fifth wheels. Over the last 40 years I have owned 5 trailers and always found they made a big difference. My first three, bought in the 1970's, were two pop-ups and a 28 foot heavy wood frame all pulled by a Jeep CJ-7. That wood frame 28 footer was a real experience till I added the wdh! I finally bought a pick-up to pull it. It was too much for a CJ-7!

My last two have been 5ers so there has been no need for them.

The ProPride 3P is not a basic WDH hitch with anti away bars.... This is a ProPride
