    I found a 2018 Limited diesel with 2589 miles ( I think it was a demo) and I’m considering trading in the Hemi.

    Love everything about the truck but it has the rear air suspension.

    Anyone with a 2500 running a leveling kit with the rear air suspension? Just wondering if it had been done. Thanks!

    I added the rear air to my '18 2500 hemi and intend to add the Bilstein front level kit very soon. My intention is to utilize the air when towing to level back up and remove the rear end squat. Some argue for it some against but it's been done many times with zero issues.

    I assume you are talking about a front level on a rear arir equipped truck?

    My 2014 CC Big Horn had rear auto leveling. I put a spacer level kit on front. No problems at all.

    Exactly! The truck sits level now, when you add the spacers to the front, does the rear compensate?

    Mine was not level to begin with. It had the standard rake in the stance.

    Once I installed the spacer level it looked just right. When I put a load in the back sufficient enough to get the rear to sag, the system leveled it out. When the load was removed the truck settled back in to level again.

    So now I am trying to understand why yours is level without a kit installed.

    Interesting stuff Maddog? Well, we'll find out soon enough because I brought it home yesterday. 2018 Limited Delmonico Red diesel. Got a great deal ($23k off) that I couldn't turn down. I loved my Laramie HEMI but, this truck is a night and day driving experience.
