level kit with airbags?

hey guys i ordered my air bags for the rear of my f250 already but havent installed them yet, and now im thinking i may want to add a leveling kit to the truck, is this possible still while using the air bags as well? i know some kits just do the front and some do front a rear...what do you guys suggest?

I am doing this exact thing in a couple of weeks. I just ordered my airbags last night. I am doing Pro Comp 2.5 level in the front. From what I was told by Pro Comp is that if I just did the front I don't have to do the back and it won't look funny. They told me the only time I will notice difference in front and rear level is when I tow. But then I am going to air the bags anyway so it does not really matter it will still be level.

I'm doing the exact same, are you going with extended shock mounts and castor wedges or adjustable trackbars to correct castor?

Take a stand today, join your local Fire Department or First Responder/Rescue team. We need all the help we can find!

I leveled my 06 and then added bags. Just for towing, so it doesn't look like it's butt is draggin. Plus, I think it smoothed out the ride a little. Granted the 6.7 rides smoother than an 06, so you may not see much difference there.

I did a Readylft 3.5" lift which does both the front and rear. I also have the airbags. You will just have to add a spacer for the bags that I got from Firestone. You will love the bags! Great for towing but will smooth out the ride as well when empty. I run mine on 10psi all of the time while empty.

Extended shock mounts is what the kit comes with.

Do you know how high you can go while using the spacers?

I know that u can go pretty high. Firestone makes many different sizes of spacers. Contact SD Truck springs. They can give u all of the info. That's where I bought mine and they are very knowledgeable.

Air lift 72000...set it and forget it. Plus change on the fly adjustability. A bit pricey but was worth the extra $ to me.
