Is there an airbag option for my 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe? Need a bit more suspension to tow a trailer? Thank you.

I have a solution for you, but there are not any suspension enhancement systems available for your 2018 Hyundai Sante Fe. Instead, I recommend looking into a weight distribution hitch which is the recommended method for leveling your vehicle and trailer. A weight distribution hitch takes the weight of the trailer off the rear axle of the vehicle and applies it more evenly throughout the entire vehicle and trailer. This results in less rear sag on the tow vehicle along with improved handling and also reduces trailer sway. When choosing a weight distribution system to go with, you go by the tongue weight of the trailer. I attached a link to show you how to determine your trailer tongue weight; it is typically 10-15% of the loaded trailer's weight.

For a tongue weight of 200lbs-600lbs go with Blue Ox TrackPro Weight Distribution w/ Sway Control - 7-Hole Shank - 6K GTW, 600 lbs TW # BLU36FR. For a tongue weight of 600lbs-800lbs go with Blue Ox TrackPro Weight Distribution w/ Sway Control - 7-Hole Shank - 8K GTW, 800 lbs TW # BLU47FR. Both of these systems will attach to a 2" trailer hitch receiver and come with everything necessary for installation and use.

If you don't have a 2" trailer hitch receiver then you can use Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" # C13153 if you have SE or Limited; use Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" # C13152 if you have Sport model. I attached demonstration videos for you to check out.
