helper bags with lift?

Does anybody make a helper bag kit for trucks with a 5" lift. I have an icon 7" lift with thier 5" leafs. Ride is great but need a little more hauling capacity. Put 4k of sand in the back the other day and it squatted pretty bad. Anyway looking for some bags that will work with 5" leafs. Thanks for the help

I have 6" leafs.... I have the firestone bags with spacers for when I haul my 28 foot enclosed car trailer... Just need to buy whatever spacers you need to make it work... Also, drilling out the license plate holes for the fill ports is an awesome place to put them. Just saying...

Hellwig pn 6406 from Summit for 99-08 Super Duty with 6 inch lift. There are others available for 4 inch rear lift. If you have a thick rear spring pack, the 4 inch unit may be the one.

I have the same springs and run the firestone kit. I had the stock height version for when the truck had stock springs. After getting the Icon 5" leafs, I flipped the bracket over and ground the stiffening fold to make room for the bag. The kit for 4" lift is basically the stock bracket, with the stiffening fold reversed.

Just get the airbag kit that fits your truck stock, then get the correct height spacers to go with them!
