I don't think there is a kit that will work with it lowered. I build a set of mounts for my truck as it has 3in shackle with the overload removed. I'll see if I can get some pics

The bag will have to be mounted outside the frame rail instead of under it. Kits for a 1500 that mounts on the outside of the frame is all you will find that is bolt on but won't be the same as what is offered for a 2500

The ford bags Mount like that. Shouldn't be too hard to retrofit

Get a kit for an 99-02 dodge 3500.. have to drill holes but it'll work. As long as your wheels have stock offset at least..

I ran a set on my lowered Zf6

Mine mount off the rear of the axle. Still requires welding and drilling but clears the bed hitch and my 5in exhaust. Think I have some extra brackets if you're intrested

There is a company called Timbren that makes a HD rubber bump stop for towing, I talked to them on the phone awhile back and they told me they didn't make a kit for lowered trucks but I could pull measurements and they could make something work. If you don't have to have airbags it's another option.

These are exactly what he needs.

I have a set I've never installed

I think that would be a really rough ride tho

How heavy are you towing? Too much for air shocks?
