Rear air bags

I was towing a goose neck for work and my truck was sagging a bit and realized that I want to get some rear air bags to prevent this, but I was looking and with the B&W turn over ball I have I don't think I can do it. Does anyone know if this is possible, or even have any pictures? Thanks.

Firestone makes a kit for the '08-'10s that can be put on with a B&W hitch in place. The bags go inboard of the frame rails and are also attached using the big bolt in the hitch side plates. I believe the number for the Firestone's is part#2450. This is the set I will be soon putting on my '10 dually.

if you didnt have the leveling kit on the truck you would have never noticed the sag, but with the front end leveled you will notice even the slightest bit of sag. Air bags are a nice addition. And like was mentioned above that kit will bolt right up to the b&w hitch.

Yeah, I was hoping with putting the 4" block in the rear I wouldn't see it. It's not bad, I had 2000 lbs of DEF in my truck for work and it was about an 1" lower in the rear, and that drove me nuts. It doesn't help having the CC LB, you notice the slightest sag in those. That sounds like a nice kit, hopefully something I can install in the driveway.

yes you can install it in the drive way in about an hour. I have done many sets, really easy install, just make sure you get all your air lines tight in the fittings otherwise you will be chasing leaks around all day....

Guys is there a kit that can't be used with lift kits? Been thinking about doing the Firestone air bag kit also.
