Can't wait to see pictures. It also would be a benefit to keep up with the cost. From what I read and see, if you live in cold climate sooner or later you will be getting rid of the air. My 15 has extremely low miles on it and I plan to keep it that way. So far I been getting about 1750 miles a year on it. Might be a show truck someday. This probably the last vehicle I will every have. But if I have to, including I'll change it.
Thanks Big Red

I'll get you guys an accurate cost after the installation is done but the guy who runs the shop also has one up in Thompson and he says alot of the people there are having issues with the air ride to so if everything works out like it better with all the research I've done he can put together a kit that'll probably cost less than the price of a compressor or an airbag

I might get a lift later but I'm putting the rancho quick lifts on so from what I've been reading I should be able to put 35s on afterwards so if that is the case I might not even bother with a lift

I live in Canada where it's cold it dropped to -25 not to long ago and I was left riding on the bump stops for the day and after 2 months of no suspension last year and a month of it's on and off again working I really dont wanna live threw that again this winter and its cheaper for me just to replace it with coil overs than to sporadically miss work threwout the winter cause my truck can't drive in the cold

Wow, that’s tough. I live in Texas so I don’t have any temperatures near that

Well I got the truck back everything is all done they even took measurements previously the front was 37.5 and the rear was at 39.5 now they're both at an even 39 and so far the ride is pretty good took it threw the floodway on the way home handled all the washboard and bumps better than the air ride ever did I'm gonna have to fiddle with the adjustments a bit in the front cause the little bumps and potholes do feel a bit rougher but overall it's an improvement over the air ride but I do have a parts list with numbers for anyone interested and heres the pics of the rear
