    Does anyone know how much air pressure there is supposed to be in the front air bags on an F-150

    At least that was what I ran in my old 150

    I put F250 springs in my F150 but I am thinking of air bags. How do they do loaded and unloaded?

    To be honest, I hated the air bags. They were a pain in the A%$ to install, even worse to get out. I went to my local spring shop, and added to the front what they called a 3'' lift spring. That seemed to be the ticket. Made a huge difference. I had an 89' and a 95' and the rear seemed to sit higher than the front anyways...

    Rick, thanks for the heads up. I thought about springs with a lift. The F250 springs eliminate the "rake" with the plow off. What do you think of load boosters from tiboron?

    I have never had any experience with tiboron. The coils were so easy to change in my trucks that , I would just get the springs, and change them out. Price was cheap also, I got those 3" lift springs for $60 for the pair. Sorry I can't help more.
