uncranking the tbars and removing the blocks will give you a decent stance.

im talking about running bags in general. More stuff to break, like lines leaking, compressors breaking and bags bursting.

Dont get me wrong, As if you want to get low, it IS the best way if it is NOT a daily driver. Also, edge's arnt really the truck to buy to lower.

Eh if you buy your air ride kit for 100$ odds are they are using inferior parts, a quality air ride system will rarely if ever fail...bags...bursting....lol bags don't burst unless they have been rubbing on some rusty shard of metal for months...I think you have no clue what you're talking about man..

You realize like 99% of Semi's run Air Ride, Cadillacs, Lincolns, Buicks, Hummers, Land Rovers, Range Rovers, Mercedes, BMW....and the list goes on and on and on, air ride is not just some aftermarket custom thing...it was invented for daily drivers that actually want a smooth responsive ride.
