I can't tell you about the ride, but I can attest to the loaded/unloaded problems. If I put enough leaf spring on my car(46 Ford coupe) to carry a load of people and car show stuff, it sits too high in back when unloaded. Not to mention the stiff ride.

If I was doing this thing over, I would put air on it just for that reason.

I've been considering doing an air over leaf type setup on the rear to cure this problem.

Go with the 4-bar/air setup IMHO.

Oh, don't forget to add good sway bars(anti-roll bars) front and rear if you do add air.
