I don't have airbags but have recently installed a set of superpsrings. I only tow 8-10 times a year so I wanted something to help during those times. For those times the springs work great. I didn't like the soft bounce feel with the trailer on with the factory setup. I have had airbags in the past and they have always performed as needed. However I found them to be a bit more hassle during the 90% other times of the year I don't need them. If money was no option I'd pimp out with the on board compressor and bags. Otherwise the supersprings are a good fit.
On mine i experimented for a few weeks. started at 15lbs and went down to 10lbs. im now at 12lbs and find its a good setting. rides good full and empty. i find the rear bounces around over rough roads with the bags..

Thanks folks, my Sierra has the heavy springs and when I didn't have a load on it the ride was rough to say the least. Im going to try the air bag Firestone Ride-Rite and see how they fair out. Thanks for the insight
SuperSprings are easy to install and have two settings. I tow my fifth wheel on the easiest setting. RoadMaster Active Suspension is also a great choice for both load capacity and resolving axle wrap problems.
