Thanks Guys!

Yeah, air bag popped when I pulled out of the gas station parking lot. They have a max pressure of 30 psi and I brought them to exactly that, so the only thing I can thing of is that they were over pressured. I was VERY light on my load especially tongue weight and stuff in the luggage area of the car, because I sent 90% of the stuff up earlier in my gf's parents RV. It was just me and the gf in the car, so it was not like I had 10 people piled into the car either. I need to take it apart and see what the deal is... hopefully it is just an air line that came off the fitting and not an exploded bag.

Pulling a boat up a grade at 8100 feet of Altitude brought my 5.3L Gasser to its knees!! I would have loved a new diesel!!

GREAT! Now your trailer warranty is void too, because you were using your tonguewheel to lift your tow vehicle

I had autoride, but I had to replace the autoride shocks with shorter shocks and put in air bags when I lowered it. Now, I have air bags inside my rear coils. Pretty much, what it comes down to is that I will never use the lowering kit I used on anything, ever again... I have seen much better designs since I installed mine.
