Is Coli-Rite the right thing?

My family is very keen on horses and we spend most weekends on horse competitions. Consequently I tow heavy trailers (up to 3500 kgs and a tow bar load of up to 140 kgs). On my Liberty I changed to OME springs to lift it a little bit to handle the trailer better. I worked well but for my new Commander (delivery tuesday!) I am thinking of installing air bellows inside the coil springs to handle the trailer load better. I found a Firestone product called Coil-Rite. is there anybody who have tried these things???

best regards from a sunny Midsummer Sweden

Several years ago I hauled horses with my pickup and used a similar product from AIR-LIFT. It worked fine. I have not used the Firestone lift product.

I hope you bought the HEMI with trailer tow option.

As far as I know no one on the forum has used those before but Im sure they will work fine for what you plan on doing with them.

I have used the Airlift product as well on two of my other vehicles. They worked well. I have not used the Firestone product.
