Firestone or Airlift would be a toss up, either one are high quality. What specific questions do you have?

Firestone air bags mount outboard of the frame rails. As far as the other items, not sure what you mean.

My airlift are mounted outboard. I get no sway with 2000 lbs of kingpin weight. Pulling a bumper pull trailer, bags don't really affect trailer sway. Proper loading of trailer is more important.

Some of the airbags mount inboard of the frame. They will provide lift but closer to the center of the truck. I can't report on the inboard bags because, I have always gone with the outboard bags. They it should provide best anti-sway from bed load. Wag from the trailer is as chuckster57 says, proper loading of trailer is key. I have done that wrong more than once!!!!
