    If your asking about ride quality. My truck is factory with it. In my opinion I would go back to spring if I could. 4 front airbags in 2 years about 4-500 a pop installed. I'm sick of it. Was on 94 in MI going east bound turned to I69 and right in the on ramp is a chunk of missing concrete. Blew my bag on the spot. Had about 60 miles of I69 I had to ride to get to my delivery.. ride it out with a horrible ride and flat out done with it. Feels loose on the front with bags at correct hight have to have them a little fuller to keep the sway down everything in the front is new and I mean everything axle bags gear box steering shaft drag link tie rods can bushings ####ty ride save your money and don't depend on the bags. As started this is a factory air front axle from Hendrickson . No caster adjust possible per alignment shop and that is bull. But it is limited no camber adjustment possible it's fixed.
