    Hey everyone. I am looking to gain about a 2 inch lift in the rear for looks/towing. Mostly for looks, Only towing once in awhile. But i was thinking of getting air bags for the rear instead of the tsb add a leafs. I will also be getting bilstein 5100s all around. But first I need some input on the air bag ride smoothness set at that hight.
    Thanks

    Foglights are for fog, not oncoming traffic!
    Looks are more important than function.

    If it's a toss up between either air bags or the TSB, I'd go TSB. Airbags will void your warranty.

    Well im not looking to go the cheap route. I just want a smooth ride. Not worried about warranty much since my father owns his shop that I work for. I will never take my truck to the dealer no matter what. I know how they work on trucks. I thought it would be nice to adjust the level of my truck with air bags but have heard it will cause a harsh ride to raise the rear 2 inches with no weight in the back. If so im going with the rear leaf packs. Not sure if i should do add a leaf or the complete pack.
