Default Rear air shocks- 5/7 drop

Anyone running them? Trucks sitting about an inch lower out back. I know I could change out shackles for a little lift but I'm leaning towards air shocks. Gonna be hauling my quad in it from time to time and want alittle extra support! Anyone have any info or links?

At 7" in the back I'm not sure which air shocks would work, I had some hardbody air shocks on mine when it was at 5" they worked okay

Updates at all. I'm looking into air shocks also . haul engines , transmissions , gokarts ,etc and I'm installing a notch finally but want to keep the travel I gain when hauling . Right now I'm at a 6" right now out back with expo swap with leafs and shackle flip .
Think the hardbody will work possibly . What years you guys talking about ? Thanks for help and sorry for the h/j if I did

I have the d21 monroe air shocks on mine. Got them on summit racing They work pretty good. I don't haul much so I can't say how they do with that. I just have the 4" drop on mine. Here is the part number http://cloud.tapatalk.com/s/57c9a08f...21_114037.jpg?
