Heck yeah I hit my first curb after the lift and I got super happy about not damaging a wheel lol

Yeah I have a project truck right now that's going to get the full air ride treatment. It will be a weekend/show truck so I won't have to worry about daily driver stuff.

Leaking would be my worry also. I know Ford puts them on their F-250's, maybe you could talk with someone at your dealers body shop, or service department. I would guess they could tell you if they have had any leaking problems.

Any reputable truck accessory shop should be able to install a quality product as well as stand by their work
