One thing you are not going to gain with airbags is more ground clearance .We have about 6" between the bottom of the shock mounts and the ground and that distance stays the same no matter how much you raise the body .I really like the idea of load leveling airbags , for trailer hauling or loads inside they are the best .

It's a snug fit but I have completed one install of the 5000 air lift on a 350HD. Working on the second one now which is much easier as I don't have the generator installed yet which gives me a lot more room to move around under the rig :-)
Had to modify the top and bottom brackets that mount to the bags and reverse the top bracket that secures to the chassis.
I also made a plate to move the bracket that holds the brake lines out of the way.

Original Kit

Great information on the modification of the brackets. Would you mind posting what kit you started with? I have read the posts over and over so I apologize if it was listed and I overlooked it.
