Coil Spring Air Bags- Yukon

I am new to this forum-Seems to have a lot of great information.
I have a '14 Salem 26 TBud that I pull with a 2005 Yukon Denali. The factory air ride has been replaced with gas shocks and new coils but I am still having a sag issue. I took to the dealer and they said that it looks fine, but I wold like a little more support as I am sagging about 4" when trailer is attached.
Any thoughts or experience with the airbags that go inside the coil springs- Much of the information on etrailer states they are intended for vehicles that have heavy cargo, not necessarily a trailer.
Thanks

The Gas shocks are nice but not the right way to overcome the removal of the Fac.Air Ride,even with the New springs. Air bags inside the Coil springs will help level the Body of your Yukon! You will still need (W/D with S/C) for a (Better/Safer) setup! Youroo!!

I do have the w/d hitch-Other than the gas, what would you suggest? The hitch also came with the sway control but I have not installed that portion yet- Always scared about drilling into the fram of the tt
Thanks

Yes the (Air Bags) but before you worry about (Drilling Frame) WORRY about a Vehicle with (NO Sway Control) sagging 4" going down (OUR) highways! Youroo!!

Is your WDH set up properly?

I think so, I spent an afternoon and reset it again last month, Making sure everything is alligned. The only thing that might be a little off is the angle of the bars. They obviously point down slightly before weight is put on Yukon, and once all the weight is on they are slightly less than parallel. I was thinking of adding a couple of washers to point them down more to start.
I am also taking all the weight off the yukon with the tongue jack so I can get as far down on the links that I can.

This is my thought too, a properly set up WDH should raise sag a bit, so if it is set up correctly and you still have a 4 inch sag that is concerning to me. Airbags will raise it up to fix a level problem but there maybe something else going on here......

I wonder what the sag is with WDH un-hooked

Are you setting up the WDH just by how the bars sit? You should be measuring the height of the front and rear wheel wells to ground unloaded and then hook up the trailer and see how much the measurement change. Then hookup the WDH and set it so the front measurement is as close to unloaded as you can get without the rear being higher than unloaded.
