    Hello everyone, I need a little help deciding what to purchase. I have a 01 1500HD Chevy with a firestone air ride in the back and air shocks in the front. I was wanting to add timbrenes to help with the sag. Also how rough do the timbrenes make your ride when you don't have the plow on? And when I was doing my research I looked at the readylift, the superkeys and the sumosprings. I was thinking of adding the superkeys and the sumosprings. But I would like all the input you have to help me out. Thanks and Happy new year

    If you have air shocks in the front why do you need more? just pump them up.

    Timbrens do make it a stiffer ride, especially when you are already in a smooth GM compared to the fords. You will notice a difference.

    I have always had Timbrens in my plow trucks and would tell anybody to get them. I personality didn't feel any difference in the ride. For the money it is the way to go!
