    Installed my Timber Grove air bags today and will say this is a very nice kit really impressed with the design and the fit and finish on it.
    Pretty easy to install even with some of the bolts being kinda tight to get to.
    Put alittle over 60psi to check for leaks and it raised the truck 2" lol.

    Wheels and tires are next. :)

    Nice, do these have a single air valve to fill both bags?

    I like their design and they seem like excellent quality I just don't know why they hook both bags to one valve

    Yes they do just have one valve to fill both bags. They do have a option to get dual fill valves.

    One thing that was pointed out to me with a dual fill set up if one has a problem its going to leave the other bag inflated which will cause the truck to be tweaked or out of level.
    Not sure if that could end of being a issue or not so I just went with the standard package.

    Ah I have heard the downside of one dill line is that air will shift from bag to bag with weight shifting like if you have a trailer and are turning or something..

    Decisions decisions.. I want these cause I don't have to cut stuff off Haha.

    That was why I was going to do dual lines to start with, but firgured it was better to have air shift from bag to bag some then have a chance of one bag going flat for some reason.

    Yeah easy install.

    From what I understand that if you drive around corner like a race car or if you have a camper in the bed that it will be okay to run one line. I did ran two lines so I will never find out.

    BTW: Or if you load one side heavyer than the other side.

    Did the bags change the height in the rear when not being used? I have been researching airbags for a while now. I was going to go with tlc but on some videos and pictures it looks like the bottom of the bag is not secured to the axle.

    At 5 psi, the back of the truck probably raises 1/2" and there is no noticable change in ride quality.
    The lower mount of the TLC bags bolts through an existing hole on the bump stop plate. The driver's side is a bit tricky to get bolted down due to the track bar mount.
