Leveled my truck under load.
The product is great, performs as advertised. There was a delay in receiving the shipment but that was the fault of the supplier. As soon as Suspension Connection was aware of the problem I received the item in two days.

Excellent for leveling out that Heavy 5th Wheel Hitch
Very Impressed with this product. After inflating all tires to Manufacture specifications and leveling out my Truck with 48 psi I took it for a Spin at road and highway speeds. The ride was unbelievably smooth.

Excellent addition for rear suspension stability
I installed the Firestone Ride-Rite Air Spring Kit (2299) and it was extremely easy to install. So easy my 9 year old grandson installed the passenger side after I showed him how to by installing the drivers side. So it is so easy to install a 9 year old can do it. It took us 3.5 hours with the truck on jack stands and we were on creepers. Very user friendly product. I installed the kit for the purpose of pulling a 11,800lb 42ft 5th wheel. The kit works great for stabilizing the rear suspension.

Works great
I had this installed by a professional. It only took him about 90 minutes. I did have one issue where the left one wouldn't retain air. I took it back to the installer and he replaced the sealant at each bag saying the sealant provided isn't very good. I just got off a trip and they retained their pressure and worked perfectly.

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.
