    I bought a Firestone Ride-Rite airbag kit a couple of months ago and decided it wasn't for me. I'm curious to see if anyone is interested in buying these? They were on my truck for a month and a half where the truck wasn't driven for a month in between there meaning these bags are hardly even used. I've got all the original hardware, box, & instructions. Will be willing to ship but would rather pick up. $200 firm.

    They did lift the rear up some but would work great with a leveling kit. The ride was a little firmer than stock. I also realized I didn't need it since all I tow is a 4wheeler trailer. If you tow alot then they would be a great add or if you want a little extra lift in the rear. I would however recommend in getting the kit that comes with it to control the PSI from the cab or a wireless handheld. It does become a pain to manually check the psi and fill up the bags if needed.

    Should work the same. I'm thinking the bolts would be long enough that holds the bottom plate on top of the leafspring. I think I have seen a picture somewhere on here that a guy has them with a lift.

    If it is the same as I had installed on my '05 Tacoma, they are terrific... and the OP doesn't know what a great ride they give! You can change the ride/ firmness/ height with air pressure... 10 psi to (they say 100) but 50 was more than I ever put in them and with a heavy load, my truck was at full height and never bottomed out (this was a truck with the bad rear springs that there is a TSB now for, but not offered when I complained to my dealer.

    WELL i am on the fence of buying the air compressor system with guages and reinstalling the bags or getting the roadmaster active suspension. With the bags I have maintenance, with the roadmaster I do not. All I tow is a fourwheeler but I do need some kind of suspension upgrade in the rear. A AAL is in the back of my head too.

    If this is the 2407 kit I'll buy them for $200.00.
    I'm in Louisville and will e-mail you off the board with my cell phone and address.

    Yup. And I think I can fit it in USPS's flat rate box for 14.95 delivered. But I will have to get a box and see.
