kits are for the new shape, only reason you would need the air suspension on a classic is if your springs are shagged, classic springs are very stiff, as long as your truck is setup with a touch of "nose down" and your springs are even remotely ok (24" hub centre to wheel arch rear) it will tow brilliantly,  load up the trailer with alot of tongue weight enough to level out the truck and get a little squat in the tyres and off you go,

hitch should be set so trailer it level loaded and front high when empty.

I tow full size 4x4's and vans about quite regularly very long distances  and its stable as a rock

trailer sway comes from not enough tongue weight

in answer to your question air kits will stiffen up your suspension nicely too
