will this kit fit truck with goose neck hitch?
This kit should fit, these air bag mount directly on the axle on top of the stock ubolts. Worse case you may have to drill in to the 5th wheel plate.

easier than i thought
these air bags work great, it takes towing to another level. Towing is much easier with the airbags installed to my truck, it takes all the jerkyness of my trailer out and stabilizes everything. install went really quick, it was really simple. it installed in about 1 1/2 hours up to two hours.
