    I have a 2012 Ram 1500 Sport with ProComp ProRunner 2.75inch Leveling Struts. I frequently Haul my motorcycle and gear to the track a couple times a month, sometimes in the bed, and sometimes in a trailer. I am looking into getting either the Tuftruck TTC-1210 or TTC-1223V to keep the truck level while hauling. Since the truck sits dead level with the front ProComps any amount of weight I put in the back seems to sag the back end due to the shitty oem coil springs.

    I know these were talked about before but the thread was a little older, and I was curious to hear from the guys who have been using these a bit!

    Thanks,

    Nick

    Get air bags and save some money. For 100$ and an hr of your time you'd be done with it.

    Honestly if I had made up my mind on what I was gonna do towing sooner I wouldn't have bought them. I just think for that kind of weight bags would suffice.

    I just worry that like everything else I would be underestimating what I will doing, ie taking more bikes and a trailer. That for the extra money on at least 25% tuftruck springs I would be ok with hauling more, and not having to constantly upgrade some kind of suspension component.

    I have the 1223V's and am glad I went that route. I tow a 27' TT, around 6500 lbs. Had to re-adjust my WD hitch to get the trailer level again, was nose hgh after i added the springs, and it really didn't stiffen the ride that much. For me, it was worth not having to play around with air bags., hook up and go

    keep in mind springs may raise the rear end. 50% ones will go up 4" I think
