Default Air bags on the rear

Ive gotten started on my next project and its going to be putting air bag system on the rear I have looked at many different systems and firestone seems to have the best one I can find on the web. But I have some concerns about installation has anyone ever installed one of these airride systems before if so Id like to scratch your brain about it Thanks in advance.

Cool

Well I have no coil springs in the rear at all so correct me if Im wrong but that means the body of the truck is just resting on the frame. And I want to fix that without raising the truck back up, or I would just put the stock shocks back on it. So I guess my problem is getting a shock that barly gives me any support because of it not being very tall or I have seen these adds for airshocks Ive seen the one for towing, and just for play, and I dont care much about being able to drop the rear end from inside the truck, I guess what it comes down to is cold hard cash. Im thinking this would be an easy fix to my problem I just want to ride as low as possable with as much comfort as I can and Ill tell u its like riding in a tracter in downtown Augusta If you know what i mean. I just dont know what to do with it, Im sure their is another way but its beside me.
