04 Ram 1500, Looking for Rear Air Bag suggestions and thoughts.

Hi, I am looking for Suggestions and thoughts of using Rear Air Bags in this truck. Truck is stock ride height with New Bushings and new Blistein shocks. I am looking to keep the rear from squatting to much if I am hauling ATV's or Snowmobiles in the box or the trailer. I also tow a travel trailer from time to time and all fall withing in the weight and towing specs of the truck.

I am not looking to break the bank just something that will help out a bit.
On board Compressor recommended? Looking for a straight forward install.

Firestone ride right bags work good installed a few of them over the years on diff vehicles and raise it up and nice little bit.

They also make Monroe shocks with bags built into them that I personally used when trailer towing and they raised the back up nicely for me nice and simple to install also

Do these change the ride height when not towing? DO I need to leave a little air in them at all times? Say 10 PSI when empty and then add 50 PSI or what ever when towing?

I used the Firestone bags on my old 04 QC and they really fit the bill on getting the truck leveled towing or carrying cargo. I used manual air fittings, one for each side exiting at the license plate mounting holes. Having the two air lines allows you to level the truck better side to side if you have cargo that is heavier on one side.
