    Load Level with Air Bag recommendation

    Noticed our 2021 Ford F-150 truck has a slight sag when hooked up with our 2021 Imagine 2500RL.
    I'm going to double check my weight numbers and hitch set up.
    But in the meantime I'm looking at getting a Air Bag system for the truck...any recommendation on the type to purchase?
    I don't need a "heavy duty" Air Load Lifter.
    Also I'll need to know where to take it to a shop to have them installed?
    I live in Southern California in the City of Riverside.
    Thanks for your help in advance.
    We have a new 2021 2500RL that we purchased from Lazydays in Tucson.
    Pull it with a 2021 Ford F-150 Crew Cab, 3.5L V6 Ecoboost with Max Trailer set up with 3.55 Trans.
    Hensley Arrow Hitch system.

    I don't know what qualifies as 'slight sag' but if it isn't significant then my suggestion is either Timbren or Sumo Springs bump stop replacements. They don't require any maintenance, they begin helping the truck suspension when a load is applied, and they don't need aired up and aired down when you connect and disconnect, respectively.

    On my Ram I put in the Timbren SES and really like it. There's about a 3/4 inch gap between the axle and the bottom of the Timbrens when unloaded but they support the springs when my GD Imagine 2400BH is hitched up. Some prefer the ride of the Sumo Springs - they support 1500 pounds at full compression while the Timbrens support 5600 pounds.

    The Timbrens easily slip into the cup where the factory bump stops go while the Sumo Springs require a little bit more to install - but are a piece of cake. Took me about 30 minutes to install the Timbrens and I'd guess the Sumo Springs would be about 90 minutes. Air bags would vary from 30 minutes to several hours depending on which design you went with.

    My 2 cents...

    IMO it's just an adjustment on your WDH.

    I would check the hitch as well. The hitch should level the truck, air bags also level the truck. I dont know how compatible both items work together.
