Ready Lift rear 4" blocks with Firestone Ride Rite Air bags Will they work together

I have purchased both the Ready Lift 4" rear blocks and the Firestone Ride Rite air bags. Does anyone know if these two items will install and work together? I am worried about the built-in bump stops getting in the way.

The Ready Lift blocks should match the factory blocks so there shouldn't be an issue.

I'm just worried that the bump stops will be in the wrong position or higher

Depends on if you got the "no-drill" kit or not. If you have the N0-drill the brackets will have to be extended.

If you have the drill kit it should work but don't have experience with that one!

The kit that I got said it will fit an F-250 or F-350. It is the no drill kit, however, it has a position for F-250 and a position for F-350. I guess I will have to try it and see. Waiting for the blocks to arrive.

I'm getting ready to do this myself. What did you have to do to make it work?

u bought the inboard axle mount style bags correct?

I would have suggested the outboard leaf spring mounted style bags for more than 1 reason

if your axle mount bags aren't set up for a lift u will need a space
the spring mounts require nothing because when usnin a block the spring does not relocate just the axle .. as you know

I have the inboard bags on my truck and it is not any less stable then our other truck with the out board bags.

As far as the blocks go, the ready lift 4" blocks that came with my leveling kit looked exactly like my factory 350 blocks. I sold the RL blocks because they were the same thing as what was on my truck.

Short answer yes 4" RL blocks and the firestone bags should work just fine

ok so if you buy bags for a stock truck the lift is going to effect the bags since they will have to be longer to hit the axle correct ? or are We assuming he bought bags for a lift ?



No disrespect but sorry
the further outboard the bags are the better they control sway ,, you just can't argue with that .. and I never mentioned stability ... you did .. so you know about the theory

I actually bought 5" Readylift blocks for my F350. I crawled under the truck with the mounts and it looks like I will have to modify the brackets to make them longer due to the bump stop tongue and longer block. The brackets were already maxed out with the stock suspension. I don't have the new block yet, will be here on Wed. They are inboard bags. 2535 Firestones.
