Rear air bag suspension

I recently purchased a new horse trailer. It's really squating the rear end of my 2008 f250 v10. I know there are kits but was told there are bags that I can manually install and add/reduce air bags with air compressor. I have no idea where to start or what I am actually looking for. Any help would be appreciated. Wanting something I can install myself.

I have the Firestone bags. I'm happy with them.

Another Firestone guy. They do not increase load but they do level the ride.

The F350 I inherited was used by my uncle to haul a gooseneck horse trailer, 3 slant with living quarters. The horse trailers axles are located so far to the rear that they really loaded down the pin weight. He installed an air lift system on it to level the truck out and they're still in there and going strong after more than ten years.
I haven't had any experience with Firestone bags, but I can attest to the Airlift.

I’ve used Timbrens and Firestone bags in my F 250. Both held truck and trailer level and although “they” say the unloaded ride is smoother with the bags I didn’t really notice a difference.
