Adding airbags to lifted F250

I tried posting in the suspension section with no luck so I'll bring it in here.
What are my options for my 06 ccsb with an 8 inch lift? I need some bags for towing. I think airlift sells spacers for lifted vehicles but how do I know which size spacer to get? Anyone have bags with an 8 inch lift with some pics. TIA

It depends on what kind of rear lift you have, (lift blocks only, new springs, or a mix of springs and blocks). It also depends on the airbag kit (whether it mounts inboard or outboard of the framerails).

For example, if you just have lift blocks and an outboard airbag kit, you won't need any spacers. But if you have replacement springs then you will need spacers.
