    I have been trying to follow some of the threads about suspension, but most people are looking for lift for offroad apps or to make the truck take a bigger wheel/tire. I do not want any of that.

    I just want it to haul more weight when I need it to, without the rear bumper dragging the ground. Was wondering about whether something like this is what I need:

    Anyone have any experience with these? And can you explain how they work? Afraid I do not understand this very well.

    Look into the Firestone Air Bags. They are only around 80 dollars, you can fill them with air depending on the weight of your load.

    A really great addition if you tow, you won't have to worry with your leafs sagging while towing again!

    X2 on the air bags. Although Virginia, where can you get them for $80? I have only seen them for around $200 or so.

    Derp. Maybe they are more, though I swear I've seen them for 80 somewhere. It was just the bags with the hose to fill, no adjustable components to mount on the truck.
