How would the air suspension be better than changing springs. I hooked a loaded trailer onto my fortuner 2.8 and the rear just sat down

It really depends on your application, full suspension will give you a better overall ride quality and handling. But no full suspension will be able to handle the load capability of the airbags.
Although we offer HD rear coils on our 50mm Suspension lift kit, which are rated +150kg additional - this will be able to handle a extra fuel tank (50kg) and 100kg on the tow bar, comparing this to the airbags which would be able to handle around 500kg at 2.5bar of pressure

It also depends if you are looking for a lift on your vehicle, as the airbags will not give you a lift - its function is to help carry heavy loads,

I have had the full suspension done on my Fortuner and very happy. 50mm lift AMADA with HD coils at rear and have a dual drawer in back and with towing my 4x4 caravan 5 inside fortuner it does not even drop at all.

Best decision ever, if you consider what air lift will cost, do the suspension, but also depending what you would like to use it for.

It has made a huge difference to the fortuner overall drive, comfort when loaded or not .... AMADAXSTREME !!!

Thanks Kobus

Thanks for the input. Good to hear about it from someone who's done it. I am inclined to go the same route
