    Id go spacers over air shocks any day. The shock mounts are not designed to carry weight. You could run into cracking issues by going that route. Im a broken record, but if you are trying to eliminate sag caused by the plow, buy a set of timbrens. You wont be disappointed...

    Having used air shocks in jeeps for 29 years and NEVER busting/cracking a shock mount (that didnt rot away first) and haven driven a jeep with timbrins (made the ride so Fing stiff) I go with with air shocks.
    I had them in my 95 my other 95 with 200K miles my other 95 (with 250K miles) my 2000 (with 158K miles) my other 2000 and my 2001.

    I installed a set of air bags on the front of my F-250. The brand is Air Lift, here's their site www.airliftcompany.com, pretty good product and warranty program.
