I bought the Air Bag Suspension Kit because I tow an 7500 lb travel trailer with my 2000 Silverado 1500. I found with the larger trailer I don't feel the bumps and dips in the road as much. It seems to be a well-built product. The onlyissue I have is with the instructions stating to remove the jounce bumps, toss the hardware and add a spacer and their bolt to reinstall them. The problem is that the bumps are molded into a metal base that the bolt is welded to. If the bump is removed from the metal base there's no way for the new bolt to hold it into place. I called Firestone and the customer support wasn't able to help me. He transferred me to an engineer who is out on vacation. So I couldn't get my answer on how to deal with this issue. At this point I'm planning on shopping for longer bumbs to compensate for the extra length added by the spacer.
