Ride Rite Air Bag Help

Has anyone put a set of Ride Rite air bags on a lifted truck? I have an 8" suspension lift with lift springs instead of blocks, and I bought a air bag kit from a guy with a stock 02' f250. It should all fit, except the top bracket. Does anyone have this setup and if so, where did you get ur top bracket from?

You might call Firestone and see if they would know. Sorry I can't be of help...

I'm gonna watch this to see what you come up with. I did find these:

Ford F250 & F350 Pickup (1980-2004) Air Bag Spacers | SD Truck Springs

You can also flip the top bracket and mount it upside down for a little lift.

I think those spacers will work. But I bet they look like damnit under there. I flipped the bracket for a test fit. The bracket, in the original postion, has a kick-up on the top edge all the way around. When I flip it, this kick-up edge if now facing down, and hits the top of the bag. It doesnt allow for a flush fit. I know this is for more strength, but it should hurt to notch that kick-up should it?
