No More Rear Sag...Pics of Airbags Installed

Firestone Ride Rite Air Bag Kit.

I've been staring at my truck with the rear lower now for a couple months and I finally did something about it. The truck is lifted with a Rize 8" kit and has an AAL and 6" Tapered blocks but still was lower in the back. Measures from the center of the wheel well to the ground is now 50.25" but it was 48.75" give a take a smidge. I am running a whopping 10 lbs in the kit. Rides great and looks better IMO.

Here are several angles of the kit.

Your are the man, I pm you last nite about drive vibes. And removed the extra 1.75 block today and just have the 6" block and 2" add-a-leafs the vibes are gone but the rear sits a little lower now and I really did not want to spend around 1000.00 for some leafs just to pick up 1"-2" so now I'm going to follow your lead. I aways wanted to try this on another truck to see if I could get just a little more lift but I sold that truck Thanks for info Please tell me you still have zero vlbes

gorgeous truck...just keeps getting better! Jesse...is that the 2452 ride rite? Can i ask a favor? Will you measure bolt hole to bolt hole (front to back) for the lower mounting plate? Also what is the height above the U bolt nuts? I am trying to figure out if these will work with my OUO top plates, but i doubt it, cause they are massive.

thanks brother!

Nice work...looks super! Personally, after putting airbags on mine, I'll never go without them again.

Palady6.4, Are those tinted lenses (lights) you have on front?
