WDH vs air bags

This is a FYI type of link. No comment except that I found it very interesting. Maybe others will, too.

That is a great video for showing the different affects that both WD and airbags make. I find it especially interesting that airbags can actually allow the drive axle to be overloaded by raising the PSI.

Too bad the the airbag fan boys won't see this.

The goal is equalized weight distribution. "Towing level" is an indicator, a side effect, of proper weight distribution.

Airbags are to level the truck when hauling cargo, not when towing. As noted they do not increase axle capability.

Edited. I didn't like how the word "allow" sounded.
