I'm installing a 6 inch lift and need a bracket to compensate
Yes you would need to purchase air bag spacers. To determine which kit you need find out the size of the rear block and if its tapered or non tapered. Example: truck has 4" tapered blocks than purchase this kit: Air bag spacer

good product
this product has not dissapointed me yet, the only thing that bugged me was the 340$ price. pushing that aside it is well worth the money.The air bags have really increased the performance of my vehicle. I cant wait to continue to use this kit.
