I don't do off road but do on occasion haul a big 2 horse trailer with our 2000 Laredo. Funny how the straight 6 outpulls my 350 Silverado but it does and it handles the hauling a lot more comfortably. The one thing lacking is that it puts quite a bit of weight on the rear. Though managable I want to put some sort of overload device in the rear springs. I am not trying to make this truck do something it can't but rather simply level the thing out. I see they make those inflatable cyls that go in the spring and they aren't expensive. Question is this; when looking in there I just dont see how they fit on my WJ. due to those snubbers inside the spring. I notice JC Whitney has a set for $70 which they claim fit but we all know Whitney overstates those sort of things.
So who has air boosted their GC and how and how much? Any links to suggestions most appreciated.

I pull a 5x10 enclosed trailer often and had the same problem. I looked at those inflators that go in the springs and decided it was to much trouble. So I put a pair of monroe overload shocks on. They are special shocks with springs around the shock cylinder.They work great if your not putting over 1200 lbs on the ball.
