Firestone Ride Rite

I want to install Firestone Ride Rite air bags and was wondering if this will add any lift to the rear. Currently have Bilstein 5100s all around with front set at .85.

depends on how much air you put in the bags. at 5 psi its pretty much stock height, at 20 ints up about and 1.5 in, or 2. so its up to you! and theyre pretty much awesome! enjoy them!

Thanks for the info...If I change my front 5100s to 1.75 will I need a Differential drop kit?

I'm set at 1.75, had a little hum for a while then it went away, diff drop isn't really a must do kinda thing with these trucks at that height.

Pump em up to the max of 125psi and watch the back end of the truck fly into the air on speedbumps

j/k i use mine to level the truck when i'm not hauling a load, anywhere from 5 to 20psi should work for you unloaded.
