Lift / air bags

I have a 2013 F350 with a 4.5 Icon stage 3 lift. I'm wondering if I can install a set of Firestone 2535 air bags with this lift kit? After looking at some pics, it looks like it's doable but wondering if anyone from this site has done it?

Thanks in advance!

Wow! No responces.....

Okay, here is another question then; anyone out there with the 2535 air bag set up that can tell me if the axle bracket touches the factory bump stop on the rear block or is there space between the firestone bracket and the bump stop?

That would be be much helpful!

The axle bracket doesn't have to touch the bumpstop but it does need to be close to it. It is ok if it is touching it as long as the lower part of the bracket is mounted flush on the axle with no gaps between it and the axle tube.

Here are the instructions for it, there is no exact reference as to how close to the bumpstop it needs to be other than:

"If this jounce tongue is present,
the height setting of the lower bracket will be just above the jounce tongue (to clear the head of the bolt going
into the bottom of the air spring)."

Hope this helps you
