Default Firestone Helper bags ???

Has anyone used the Firestone Ride right kit 2286D on a truck with a flip kit done on the rear. It looks to bolt to the leaf springs on a normal set up but with a flip the rear end looks to be in the way. And for the gurus could I just move the bags in front of the axle or behind it insted if needed and just drill new holes out in the frame??

I have the air lift that is similar. You have to flip the upper bracket upside down to get it above the notch in the notch plate. Since the plates are so thick, and the frame is behind that, I welded my upper bag mount to the notch plate instead of bolting it. Mine are in front of the axle and I have had zero issues. Money well spent.

Thats exactly what I did...CL for $150.... I did buy 2 3/8" valves, a 1.5g tank so I can adjust on the fly....

I fully understand.... I wanna bag so bad, but this is my main transportation and I am in real estate and property management.... so pulling up in a community w/ $1M homes and dumping it would be a little out of professional character. :P
