Reversed leveling kit?

Im am looking to lower the rear end of my dually to sit level. Then install airbags to raise it back up when I have to pull my fifth wheel. Has anyone done this or know anything about this?

It would be very simple, just measure what size rear blocks you have between your axle and spring. they should be just about 4".

If they are the 4" blocks you can swap them with a set of 2" blocks and u-bolts from an F-250 which will lower your rear 2".

But will I still be able to lift it back up with airbags to pull a 14k camper? And I am also putting 24's on it this summer. So my wheel clearnce will be alot smaller.
