    anyway. From what i pieced together after reading your jibberish post you want to tow a corola from new mexico to san diego. And you want to get airbags to help with the towing. Does the block part mean you have 1" blocks for a lift? My my suggestion, instead of buying air bags and instlling them would be to get one of thoes little u-haul car trailers that the front wheels sit on. Anyway good luck towing your wife corona

    I would support the car dolly idea unless the corona has tow bars, but I doubt it. As for bags, I know quite a few guys who runs firestone airbags

    Small lift and a topper!
    Shame it isn't an actual Toyota Corona, those things looked sweet!

    I'd get another of the Uhaul tow dollys for the Corolla, and hook it up to your truck. The dollies don't have a ton of tongue weight, so you shouldn't be too "nose high". It'll work fine.

    If you WANT to get air bags (which I would only do if you plan on towing a lot, not just this one time), then the Air Lift and Firestone bags are both good quality options. I run the Air Lifts, and they are nice when towing, and carrying a heavy load, but it isn't as though the truck can't tow without them.

    Your truck will tow it fine, just get a a ball mount that drops down to the correct hitch height of the dolly. They'll help you out at U-haul. They like to sell stuff.
