I will also do some towing from time to time, twin axle box trailer that can legally weigh up to 2 tonne.

I'm starting to think airbags may be an option but don't have any experience with them.

Anyone got any thoughts?

When I was looking to sort out my saggy rear, I was told to get springs over airbags. Apparently airbags can cause chassis rails to crack from point loading. Iím sure it doesnít apply to all vehicles, but Iím getting 500kg constant load springs installed.
