97 f-250 air bags w/B&W hitch

i have a 97 f-250 4x4 crew cab short bed w/7.3 psd in it, i have a B&W flip over ball hitch installed in it and am wanting to put a set of air bags on it. i have contacted air ride and firestone both about a kit but they are NO help! the B&W hitch has a large 11/4" bolt that sticks through the frame right where the air bag would sit and would rub against a air bag. i know i am not the only guy that has ever ran into this problem if anyone knows of a kit it would be verry much appriciated if you would let me know. I AM NOT into cutting and fabbing something up, i dont have the time or tools to do that. Thanks in advance Bret

One of them makes a special air bag kit specifically for trucks with a GN hitch.
Another company to look into is Helwig.
