(kevlar)-bagging it

Hey guys,

Out of sheer curiosity what becomes of the handling and payload capacity from bagging the truck?

Is there any signigicant problems associated with converting to air shocks?

I ask because I'm not really interested so much in lowering the truck (stock ride-heigh is what I'm shooting for here) but as a motorcyclist I like the idea of being able to lower the back enough to make it easier to load a bike. Also it might be nice if I can 'beef up' the payload capacity for short hauls to the dump, Home Depot, etc.

Anyone here some sort of airbag wizard?

Thanks.

Gabriel and Monroe make air shocks for REPU and Air Lift makes a nice air springs for increasing the rear spring rate. I use them on my Amigo to tow the racecar.

I'm sure air bagging a REPU is do-able, the suspension is very typical.
