Will rear airbags work with taller blocks

I'm getting ready to order read air bags for my truck, I'm going to get the bolt on ones that work with in bed hitches. I installed 5" rear blocks, will the bag set up work out with the extra inch from the taller block? I know these kits say 250/350 so I know there's 2" of play there with the blocks. Thanks

It depends on what brand and model the air bags are... Can't give a true answer without more info

You can get many different size spacer kits for the airbags, so you will not have a problem.

I put the Firestones on mine before my 5" Ready Lift was installed. They had to modify the brackets but no biggie. You should have no probs...
