    I am considering buying air lift air bag suspension for all 4 tires. I came across their air cells (which seem to work like timbrens) and was wondering if anyone has them. They are cheaper and installation is a breeze compared to the air bags. Any help would be appreciated for either of these products.

    Firestone air bags require drillng for my vehicle just like the other brands. Airbags are my preferred choice though. I forgot to attach a link but a quick search on google should work.

    I got AirLift. I love it. Makes me wonder why I didnt do it years ago. Ive had em for about 3-4 years now with not one problem with the bags. My on board compressor just took a dump but that wasnt entirely all its fault. I would go the bad route by all means. You will want it later if you haul regularly.

    What is your truck anyways?
