    My Tacoma was in need of some rear end help. I know this comes as a big surprise. I went with the Ready Lift 1" block in the rear which is great until the camper is hitched up. So I decide to go with the Firestone Ride Rite's because they sit on the axle. Come to find out that the blocks need to be removed for proper installation. Will the air bags give me the 1" lift at minimum pressure to achieve being level again? I really prefer these over the Air Lift system. No TSB= Out of warranty. Thanks.

    You should get that lift no problem at min pressure. I set the pressure at 7 psi unloaded and experience at least an inch of lift.

    Thanks Fortech. I also got the wireless Air Lift compressor set-up. Can't wait to get them in.
