Need more suspension for towing, trailer weight. Can air bags be added, has anyone added air bags? Ifso please pass on info. Thanks

I have only towed twice but the air ride lifted the back up pretty level, not totally but enough. :)

The Lade suspension should be able to handle what the hitch is rated for. You may need to make sure that the weight on the trailer is distributed so that you only have about 600 lbs of hitch weight. You want some weight on the hitch to keep things stable, i.e. so the trailer doesn't wipe from side to side. More than 600/800 lbs hitch weight will require a better hitch receiver, helper-springs/air-bag, higher rated tires. If you already have the Lade loaded, you may want to move some of the load to the trailer.
