simple install
im surprised to say that this kit was really simple to install onto my 2006 2500 ram. the install was around 1 1/2 to 2 hours. the ride with this product is supurb, i used to tow a bobcat trailer and i would get alot of sag in the back, with these i get a perfectly level truck, really excited to put these to the ultimate test when the weather gets better.

Huge difference when towing!
These air bags are just what the Dr. ordered! I tow an 11,200lb fifth wheel RV. I put 50lbs in the bags and the stability improves greatly, especially when you hit sudden lateral dips or other "bumps" in the road. I have a heavy duty suspension to begin with but with an almost 1900lb hitch weight there was a little sag in the rear... The bags leveled that right up... The only downside is that when not towing, and the bags at the minimum 5lbs, the ride is still very stiff for anyone in the back seat! Hey, it is a truck!

The best endorsement i could give is "I would buy it again"
Took me over four hours to install the first half and only one hour the second. Why ? I did this in my drive way and spent most of my time going to the shop getting tools and rereading the instructions. The special tool they give you to install a bolt is neat , after you do it once. Remember when you zip tie the air lines " tie them to the frame ". After I was done I reread the instructions again and found out I could have ordered a tee for the air lines and only had one fill connection. I did not see this option when i ordered . Looking locally but have not found one yet. Yes I would buy it again. PS It works great.
