Q: How much effort is required to install?
A: Kits install in 2-4 hours. Minimal drilling is required. Welding and bed removal are not required. Detailed instructions are provided for every system we offer.
Q: Can I use lift blocks, add-a-packs, full replacement leaf packs, etc?
A: Yes to all. Our kits are designed around factory geometry and aftermarket leaf options. We enjoy working with customers to ensure that they get exactly what they need. Please contact us if you have application questions.
Q: I already have an air compressor/air management system on-board? Can I keep it? Or... Do I need an onboard compressor?
A: Yes, keep your air system and tie it into our kit. If you simply want to manually fill and vent the bags we include the plumbing components required to do so. Keep the airbags vented via the supplied ball valve when you do not need them.
Q: I already have or plan to use a 5th wheel or Gooseneck setup. Is this kit compatible with these?
A: Yes, our system is designed to function with or without Ford OEM and B&W bracketry. Please contact us to review potential compatibility with other manufacturers.
Q: What is the load capacity of the airbags?
A: At 100 psi, the force that each bag exerts is 1500lbs (both bags = 3000lbs). This means that you could place a 3000 pound load in the truck bed, air the bags up to 100psi and you would see a net zero rear end squat. The airbags are USA made with internal bump stops and are rated to handle 250 psi.
Q: Are tools required to install and remove the spacer?
A: No. It is custom designed with a spring loaded quick release latch and can be operated with just one hand.
Q: How much rear suspension travel will the system allow?
A: Droop travel is unlimited because there is no lower airbag attachment point. Compression travel varies by truck and the type of leaf spring employed. Generally speaking, your suspension travel will be limited by the shock stroke length or axle bump stops....not our airbag kit!
Q: Can you support custom applications / configurations / colors etc.?
A: Yes. Please contact us to discuss. We enjoy working through custom applications with our customers, as are our roots.
