    i don't really want air bags because i don't want to have to add or remove air as needed and i don't want to spend the money to get an on board compressor, so now its down to supersprings or timbrens

    I have had Timbrens, Overload and extra leaf springs, and air bags. Of all those combinations, the air bags are still the most versatile load "helper" on the market. They won't add any height to the truck when they are empty, but will completely eliminate sage when aired up. They do not affect the ride when empty, nor do you have to draop 1-2" before they start to work. I almost always have an air tank with me, and I can make adjustments from that if I need to since I have never gotten around to finishing the installation of my on-board air compressor.

    Trust me, best bang for the buck.

    I had air shocks in a 1992 Ford Bronco for the rear. They were great when it came to towing/hauling. And road fine when aired down for normal driving. I'd second the airbags though.
