Default Other helper bag options?

Does anyone have any other recommendations/options for helper bags for a lowered truck 2/4 besides the Slam Air 59210?
I am not opposed to this kit but I also want to make sure I cover all bases to make sure I get the best product wether it be from price or ease of install.

Thanks

what do you mean? stiffer shocks? I just need to be able to tow my 18ft boat and the occasional small block v8 or yard or two of mulch

don't need helper bag to tow a 18ft boat.: boat are light in the hitch. same thing goes for towing a car on trailer.
mulch weight about nothing.

Your other option are "helper spring" don't remember the name of the product exactly...but you can look at pretty much anyhting that is available for towing(other then airbag) and they can be fitted to a lowered truck with stock leaf
just need the one that fit your leaf wheter you have a flip kit or not.(diff over or under the leaf pack.)
they generally cost around the same as the helper bag.
