I have a 2008 Ford F350 4X2 SRW truck. I want to add air bags to bring the truck bed back to level after hooking up our fifth wheel. When the trailer is not hooked up it sits a little high in the rear of truck. While towing should I have the air bags set to bring the bed back to level or to the original position which is a little high?
I have been looking into the Firestone Ride-Rite and this is what it specifies for my truck in the instructions: "FOR BEST RIDE use only enough air pressure in the air helper springs to level the vehicle when viewed from the side (front to rear). This amount will vary depending on the load, location of load, condition of existing suspension and personal preference."

Just to keep it level. You will be amazed at how much better it will tow and ride. Best mod that can be done to a truck in my opinion. And I drive a dually! It will also solve the 'drive line shudder' problam that most all new trucks have when taking off with a heavy load in the bed(like a 5er). Just remember to set them up independently. I should've done it long ago on both trucks!
