Best Suspension Enhancement for 2017 Ford F-150 to Reduce Towing Suspension Sag


Hi, I have a 16x84inch flatbed trailer with a 7000 pound capacity, that I tow with my 2017 F150 Supercrew 5.0 4x4 with 3.55 gear ratio. When it is loaded fairly heavy, my truck squats more than Id like. I was looking at getting the Roadmaster Active Suspension to help, but didnt know how much it would help. Also, I do not use a weight distribution hitch with it, due to the trailer weight constantly changing depending on what I have on it. Would you recommend the RAS as a stand alone helper, and if so, would you recommend the standard or HD version. Thanks,

The RAS systems are by far the best suspension enhancement kits out there for vehicles like your 2017 Ford F-150 to reduce suspension sag. Main reason is that unlike other system this does not make your ride quality when loaded or unloaded (many state that the ride quality improves greatly) and also does not require the maintenance that air bags do as well.

For as much as you plan on towing I'd go with the HD model part # RAS3611-YHD which gives 3,000 lbs of suspension support over the 2k support of the # RAS3611-Y which also fits your truck.
