Not really..... The Firestone seem to be more popular and better post-sale supported. It would be a no brainer if they weren't that gay-blue color and smack in your face obvious under the lift kit. I'm trying to keep everything Red so it will be Air-Lift, IF the NAPA coils are wound tight enough to support them well enough.

Then I guess cross fingers and hope Napa springs will be wound tight enough.

I agree with you on that the Firestone blue will throw the colors of your rig completely off. It would look more than a little odd with nearly everything red and black then two blue air bags tucked in under the back.

Radflos arrived today, picked up the springs from NAPA. I'll dropoff the springs for powdercoating in the morning. Now I need to order the helper springs. Anyone know where to get a steal deal on the Air-Lift 1000 bags??

They are special for the Armada Rear, not shown on the site but he has several pairs in stock.

Stupid JC Whitney promo code didn't work but it looks like they can still ship faster than Amazon so I went through with ordering from them.
