ok guys, im wanting to lift the rear end some around 1-1.5" my problem/question is, i have air bags and im not sure if i would need a spacer for them if i only go with a 1" block or a zero rate?

yes i know i could just put more air in the bags to get this hieght but ive already played with that and to do so i get a very rough ride, which i would like to keep the best ride possible that i can.

thanks for yalls help!

I put on the Fierstone air bags on two days after I received my truck thinking I would need them but I don't. There 5000lbs 6-100psi and I run mine at 10psi all the time and it lifts the back end up two inches 50psi six inches. Mine seems to ride better, less weight on the springs. These are my first set and I love the way they it makes the truck handle, it doesn't keep on fish tailing when you wiggle the steering back and forth, its like having a sway bar on.

like i said i tryed it at 10psi and it was too much bounce, 5psi which is the minimum for my airlifts is where i keep them unloaded and seems to ride well and it still brought my rear up 1/2".

Z71offroader,

How are your bags mounted? On the spring pack to the frame or on the axle to the frame?

they dont mount on the spring pack, they mount on the axle and where the stock bump stop was located.
