    Hey all-

    Right now i have firestone air bags installed to help the rear sag when towing my boat around. I want to put on a 6 inch pro comp lift...Can i still do this with the firestone air bags installed as well?

    Does the lift use blocks on the rear axle for lift? Do the airbags currently bolt on top of the leaf springs?

    You can buy spacers for the bags for lifted trucks.

    It does not matter how it is lifted. The bags bolt to the leaf springs in place of the bumpstops. Firestone makes spacers that bolt in place for lifted trucks.

    :thumbsup: Be sure to get the correct spacers for your setup. You should measure the distance between the bag brackets after you lift, and get the correct size spacer.
