Of the two options presented, airbags.
Like the others have said, your shock mounts are not designed to carry weight.
At the risk of offending you by not answering your question EXACTLY as asked, let me add this because perhaps you didn't think of this eventuality:
Assuming you are towing a bumper pull trailer, because you didn't specify and I can't read minds, did you upgrade the truck's receiver hitch?
A 10,000lb bumper pull trailer can put 1500lbs of weight on the tongue pretty easy. The factory hitch is only rated for 500lbs of tongue weight without a weight-distributing hitch, and only 1000lbs with a weight-distributing hitch.
If you are running the stock receiver without a weight-distributing hitch, keep an eye on it.
