will I see any "lift" over my regulat 1/2 ton springs?
My main goal with my truck is going to be hauling my slide in camper, and really, I would rather have heavier springs. I am looking at going the other way, (add a leaf for 2 inch lift and an air bag set up for the extra weight) and really not sure which is the lesser of two evils... Besides the slide in camper (1300 lbs dry) pulling a horse trailer (bumper pull 2 horses trailer) like 10 times a summer for my girlfriend to show her horses.
Now I am not thinking I will have a 3/4 ton truck when I do this. I know I am still limited by the 9.25 I have been looking for a 3/4 ton truck for a while now, and a everything I look at is either a fortune, beat beyond belief or both. My goal is a 3/4 ton Cummins, but at the moment its just not a reality.
So these are my choices.
Any help would be cool...

They are ok but here's my issue. I have mine set up about 1 1/2 inches from the leaf assembly. When my weak suspension travels past the 1 1/2 inches the Timbrens are in contact with the leaf assembly. They have very little give and the truck feels like it "bottoms out". It is just against the Timbrens making for a rough ride. My suspension is about as weak as they come making the situation more noticiable. My truck does ride nice without any load on the suspension thus the reason I haven't replaced the mains or beefed up the leaf assembly. I like the bags because you can adjust them and keep the soft factory ride when you are not under a load. Just my 2 cents.
