Rear Suspension Leveling - Houston

Want to have a rear suspension leveling system (air bag) installed on our 2016 F250 diesel; will be in Houston July 6 - 10 and wonder if anyone knows a good place in the Houston area to do installation.

Question

?????

2500 Diesel....I doubt the tongue weight will squat the TV enough to warrant the $$$.

POI...the WD when set correctly should de-squat the TV.

Thanks for getting back to me. Know exactly what I want to do; have the all too common F250 rear squat issue; not overloaded, just squats too much even with ProPride and truck empty. Frustrating, but I do love this truck anyway, just would prefer riding level down the road. Decided to go with air bag suspension to get a compressor and have the ability to also inflate tires, etc. as needed.

If anyone knows of a good place to get air bag leveling suspension systems (will most likely use Firestone's Ride Rite) in the Houston area, I would appreciate it if you could let me know, either through reply or private message.

If you are talking about a full air suspension system to replace the factory springs, the Kelderman system is a good bet. They have dealers in a lot of places. I have full air ride on my '07 Duramax and it has really made difference in the ride and towing performance. The softer ride is really easy on the Airstream. The systems were designed for one ton trucks so they make a 3/4 ton rear end much stronger. I had my local 4X4 shop install mine.
