I've got a Ford F350 pulling a 32' Cargomate trailer with a Top Sportsman Firebird and electric golf cart. The only way to get them to fit is pull the golf cart in first, then winch the Firebird in backwards so the wheelie bars go underneath the golf cart rear seat.

I'm going to add some air bags to the trucks rear axle. Does anyone have experience or recommendations for which air bag setup to use? Trying to decide between Firestone and Air Lift.

I've heard good things about the Timbren SES system

I have Firestone also but they have been replaced once. I have the Air Ride automatic leveling system which sounds great but I wish I had their system that shows the air pressure. You need to keep a small amount of air in the bags and it’s hard to fine tune the automatic system to do that.

I have the firestone on my motorhome and air lift on my pickup. They both have worked great. I keep 100 lbs in the bags on the motorhome because its always hooked to my race trailer. I keep 20 lbs in the pickup when not towing, then pump them up to tow. I use the gas station style air chuck to inflate with so I can check pressure.

Thanks for the info and opinions. I've never heard of the Timbren, that system looks very interesting.

It looks like etraler.com sells all three brands, I'll give them a call and see what they recommend. Probably can't go wrong with any of the three.

Timben will only help if your truck squats under load. (it will reduce squat) They will never bring the truck back up to the correct ride height.
