    Another delayed reaction....

    I am in the process of putting a full airbag suspension on my 82 C/K5. I am by no means an expert on air suspension, but I can assure you that you can hual whatever you want with airbags. What you need to do is design your system with your towing in mind, and it will be more capable than it is now. If you have any doubts about a bags ability to handle a load, take a look under any 18 wheeler, or most motorhomes on the road. Yep, you guessed it, they all ride on air...

    Yes by all means you can. I've been installing bags for quite a while now. From lowriders to Z71's to F-550 Flat beds. They work extremely well, and give you a great ride, yet can carry thousands of pounds (depending on set-up). Plus you have on board air, if you need it.
