Greg, I have the Air Ride HD kit with on-board compressor and digital control panel. It is almost identical to that kit you're looking at. I LOVE it! I don't really use it for towing my boat. More for when I'm towing my work trailer and what a difference. Do your self a favor and get the on-board compressor kit. The control panel is about the size of a pack of smokes and the buttons and read-out are on the small end, so it occupy a lot of space.

I installed a set of air springs on my last truck 1500 Chevy 4X4.They really improved the ride and stiffened the rear end up and eliminated my rear end sag.

My father has them on his Dodge Ram and I had them on my Toyota.
We both like them and they worked as advertized.

Sorry, I was in a hurry. Mine is an Air LIFT and I meant to say it doesn't occupy a lot of space. [img]../images/emoticons/thumbsup.gif[/img]
