airbags with a lift

Has anyone put Ride Rite airbags on a truck that has a lift on it? Were there any issues with it?

it really depends on how much lift you have and how you use the truck. With a large lift you will have to look at air springs with a lot of travel either a Triple convoluted air spring or a sleeve style. You can also look at the daystar air spring cup that allows the for the air spring not to have to be bolted down on the bottom. There are lots of companies who do air springs, I most likely will end up putting my own together been looking at Air Suspension Pros | Find Quality Suspension Lowering & Lift Kits for some of the stuff, I used to use their stuff back in the day when I was building my street truck.

6" is a lot. You would need to fab brackets or I believe they sell spacers. They wont work without modification
