    Ride rough
    Spring rate ramps up very quickly on compression
    Limited suspension travel
    Fairly easy to puncture

    We've had a good experience with the Firestone RideRites. I agree with @RPS1030 that it rides rougher than hell when unloaded but put a 7500lb gooseneck on the back and load another 3000 lbs of horses in there and the air bags do exactly what they are supposed to.

    If you are towing a boat or even a lighter weight rv/camper/5th wheel I'd probably upgrade leaf packs instead unless you are towing some major weight.

    Do it before you ever drive a vehicle in there. And an acid etch should be fine

    Haha, that's not on the truck, it's the Z. Changing out the spark plugs and had to take the balance tube off the intake manifold. Found some shotty work.

    Time serts are way better than a helicoil. But absolute worst cas is take it to a good machine shop that can weld it and re-drill and tap it. That will just cost a lot more money
