Icon 6" leaf instal question

I'm gonna try to put on my new 6" rear icon leaf springs today, was wondering when I replace the leaf pack do I need to save and reuse the bottom leaf with the bumpstop bracket? If so will I need to open the center bolt on the new pack to put it in? I'm going to be running hellwig airbags for the 6" lift as well if that makes a difference. Do those replace the bumpstop?

I'm guessing the 6" is a typo, 5" and 8" options for rear leafs (according to website).
Anyhow I just have a plain 1" block under my 5" leafs, no bump stops. The Firestone airbags I use act as bumpstops before overcompression and occur.
