you can tow more with air than you can with leaf spring, just make sure its done right. ive been around air ride for a long time and seen alot of hacked up trucks and pop corn welds.

just follow these things...

BRASS dot fittings
dot air line
a good name brand compressor
install you valves inside of cab
run a water trap
and have a pet **** on your tank

in other words, dont skip out on cheap chit.

From the info ive gotten, it's $4,000 for just the rear of the kelderman lift and i dont think its worth that much... i know a welder that will throw it together for me if i tell him exactly what he needs to make...
