    I'm looking at doing some towing with a 06 dc, would it be worth putting air bags on it? I haven't seen much on it. Does it help? Example ..... just towed a heli about 200 miles and would rather of used my truck. (4500 lbs)

    You would rather have used your truck?
    I recommend looking at Timbrens, they work similar, but are cheaper, easier to install, and will not break.
    I have them, and several others here, I think. They work well.
