shock absorbers vs. sumo springs Thor Quantum KW-29

Went to etrailer with question about better stability and shocks and they recommended air shocks with monitor. I really don't want to run more wires, much less spend that amount of $$ etc. I have already done the Roadmaster rear sway bar mod and Roadmaster Reflex front steering stabilizer and she is good but would like to stop the occasional "bottoming out" on the rear axle and go 1 step further on tail wag.

Why not go with air helpers. Had them on my Sunseeker and they worked great. They we move when adjust ride height due to changing my loading based on type of trip. Mine were Firestone.

Sumo springs are probably the best to help with your probably already overloaded rear axle. Have you had it weighed?
