Rear suspension too weak.

Its summer now so im hitting up the ocean and lakes on my jetskis. When my truck is fully loaded i have 2 stand ups in my bed and towing 2 seadoos on a trailer. but with all the weight on my rear suspension my truck sits really low in the back for example im less than a inch from the bump stops and the leaf spring are bowing up. i dont think the tsb is the way i want to go. im thinking of putting air bags in the back. should i do the bags, has anyone done this and any recomemdations on what bags to get?

yep that would work but i like taking my standups most of the time and i normally take them to this secluded lake where u have to do a good couple miles off roading and there is no way of taking a trailer.

Why not do the rear leaf tsb? Lot's of people here have done it & are happy with it.--Just curious...

and the TSB actually replaces all your leafs, not just ading one. so yes it would help...and if your in warranty its freeeee

the deaver pack would be no good for you, they are for flex not hauling.
however the OME leaf pack has a better than stock load rating and is alot cheaper than the deaver pack.

If anything you should be looking into the Dakar leaf packs, not the Deavers.

The Dakar's are produced by OME and will increase your load carrying capacity a fair amount over the TSB springs.
