Customer Question from our Archives: How can I keep my 2002 Chevy Silverado from sagging when I haul a heavy load? Should I get rear air shocks?
At Shockwarehouse we have some Airlift products that are actually better than air shocks. Air shocks can put a lot of stress on the shock mounts, which aren’t really designed to hold the truck up.
The Airlift Air Cell and Air Spring Kit are both designed to keep your truck from sagging. The Air Cell (52203) is basically a heavy duty air bladder that doesn’t need to be adjusted and will add extra support.
The Airlift Air Spring Kit (59501) is adjustable just like an air shock. Use an external compressoror get an onboard compressor from us if you’d like to adjust it on the fly. The benefit of the air spring is that when you aren’t towing or hauling, it won’t affect your truck’s ride at all, since you can just deflate it.
