That's not recommended.
On a hard turn air deflates from one side and adds to the other side thus not helping in roll.

Been hooked that way every since 95 and never had a problem with it. Don't rely on them for 'cornering' as the overloads come into play real quick.

Plus, with an onboard compressor, not going to run all the plumbing inside the cab with a directional valve fitting. Just not worth the effort or clutter.

Hi, dunnnc! While the "T" will work fine, I do like to be able to balance the load at times... At a recent trip from HD, the boys loaded 19 bags of cement and 5 bags of grass seed into my truck as I was shamelessly flirting with the girl at checkout. Guess where the cement ended up? Right... on the driver's side.

Looking into the airbags for our 2001 Silverado 1500. The airbags & installation run anywhere from a quote of $500 to $1000, which is a BIG spread; we only want the basic airbags as the truck is old with high mileage. Checked with a local RV dealer and a tire/auto company, both were the high bids. Camping World was the lowest so far.

We have Air Lift bags on the Sequoia and love them! I added them after getting our weight distribution all set up to firm up the ride and they do great. I usually run about 25# of air and don't ever air them down as it really doesn't affect the ride when empty enough to bother.

Warning to half ton guys, removed my Timbrens as they didn't let the truck settle enough to make proper use of the WD bars witch also effects sway control on an equ-i-lizer and actually over loaded my rear axle.
