    what should i use to make my rear suspension stiffer. As you can see in this pic with trailer and my gear in the bed it is riding slanted.. different shocks would help that or just because it is quite a bit of weight? Shocks any suggestions. current PRO-COMP ES6000

    if you haul regularly, try take a look at airbags or switch out your current leaf pack for one meant for hauling, like the all-pro expo leafs

    What is the tongue weight with it set up like you have in that picture? It looks from this angle like most of the weight is in front of the trailer axles.

    The rear shocks do not support weight so changing them out will not help your situation.

    Do you want lift? If so, look at those All-Pro leafs or the Dakars made by OME. If not, air bags would be a good solution if you tow frequently.

    They'll work, but if your leaf pack is shot it won't help your every day ride. Also, if your leaf pack is worn out, an AAL is more of a band aid. It'll help for a while but eventually it too will flatten out. If you haul or tow frequently I would consider air bags.

    Here's a cheaper place for Timbrens :D

    .
    I'm running airbags from Firestone, absolutely thrilled with em, pump em up for what ever load i'm running and air em down when i'm done, not too $$, easy to put in (took me about an hour ), don't need to replace the leafs, in fact, this makes everything last much longer.
