Made a trip to work an back with the camper, rides nice but sags in the rear more than it did before.

FYI for anyone interested in the trucks current setup and weight, 5640 dry wt of the truck.
8060 with the camper (2420 camper wt).


Side notation, I keep getting a popping noise when turning but everythings tight.

with the camper on the back I've decided since I've got access to these air bags for free, I'm gonna snag two of them quietly and make a mount for them and do the farmer bag setup. Air them when I want them. If its 1500# for each bag, I can easily payload the camper at 90# without my alcan springs.

Stitches is looking good there! Great job with the SAS dude. Can you put something together more like an article with images? I would like to get it into a magazine if interested.

Like a "how to" of some sort?

Not so much a "How-to" but more like an article about your project along with images and such. If interested email me and we can set something up. The most important thing is that you have High Res images.

1700x1100 is the rough image sizes I have, are they high enough resolution for what your talking about? Sounds like your thinking more along "Readers rides" type idea that most magazines do.
