Air Suspension/leveling

Im thinking about adding some sort of ride leveling system to my 2009 Honda Pilot which is currently my tow vehicle for a 6x10 utility trailer. I use it primarily for homeowner work. Mulch, gravel, landscaping materials and hauling my John Deere 318.

What do you think? Would you recommend any one system over another?

Thanks.

Re: Air Suspension/leveling

Well I dont know about the Pilot, but I have a odyssey I tow with. I have heard the Pilot is based on the Odyssey van, but I could be wrong. That being said, I went with the coil over Monroe Loadlevelers and new coil springs in the back. they work well, but they do stiffen the ride some. It doesnt matter to me, but some like the soft cushy ride.. A lot of the guys out there run the air bags in the rear springs. They like them becouse you can adjust them for load, and ride. All this being said, one of the key towing points to this drivetrain is a updated trans cooler if you dont have the tow packege .
