My F350 SRW is squatting a little

I have a Voltage 3200 and when hooked up with air glide hitch it squats my truck. Has anyone added a extra spring to their truck to help? My truck is a new 2016 HD 4x4 F350 with camper package.

Check out "Torklift Stableloads." That's what I use. Easy to install.

Hi Ted, I have a 16 F-350 with a GVWR of 11500, with the 3605 hitched up I'm still a little nose high. Do you not have the overload springs? It sits just above the main spring assembly. I wish mine would sag a little more. With the camper package I'm almost sure you would have the overloads, I assumed all 350's would have them? I have a slightly used set of airbags that I had on my 12 F250...I'd make you a heck of a deal on.

I have the F350 4x4 long bed camper package with the 5th wheel package. Why do you wish it squatted a little more? I may be interested in the air bags... not sure yet. I'm wondering if I have a 5th wheel hitch (Air Ride) that is the wrong size or something... All my hitch weight is 2+ feet back from the center of the B & W hitch.

So you have the B&W companion hitch in the truck and an air ride pin box on the camper? I'm not familiar with that type of b&w hitch, is there any adjustment to slide it forward any? Maybe some one on here is familiar with it and can advise. Or I'd maybe run back by the dealer and have them take a look.

I have the short box and the camper is an inch or two high in front, so my point was that if it pushed the suspension down (sagged) another inch the camper would sit level.

Sorry for the confusion but the hitch on the camper is a Trail Air... Not sure what the heck I was thinking. It has no adjustments forwards or backwards.

Ok Trail Air on the camper so what hitch do you have in the truck bed?
