    I know I have the terms wrong, but I am looking for a rear adjustable airbag for leveling the load.
    Maybe I have this all wrong, but I am going to haul a fairly heavy (400 lb) motorcycle on a hitch mounted carrier. I have used it several times in the past for short trips with no problem.
    I have a 1,000 mile trip planned for next month. (each way.)
    Is there some type of lift or air controlled ride height adjusting device that is available?
    I don't think it's good for the truck to ride with the back end sagging for 2,000 miles..
    If anyone has a suggestion, I'd appreciate it.

    Thanks,
    Jeff

    Have you had the rear leaf TSB performed? I would look into this before investing in an airbag system when the TSB would be performed under warranty and would only cost you your time.

    I wouldn't be too concerned with hauling the Harley especially after having the TSB done.

    Take a look at Firestone Ride-Rite air bags, http://www.fsip.com/riderite/ . Easy to install and reasonable priced. I tried Air-Lift, the placement of the bag is not idea for really heavy load (1000lbs) in truck bed.
