Can't mount airbags

Has anyone ever run into the problem that you can't mount airbag helper springs to the MH since Forest River mounts on the hydros for the slides and jacks on the outside of the frame rails?

Anyone have any suggestions?

The Firestone Air Springs I purchased mounted to existing holes in 3 out of 4 places. The other required drilling 2 holes, I believe it was the passenger side rear but it still mounted in the same place as shown in the instructions. My unit is built on a 2006 chassis so there probably has been changes. What year chassis do you have?

For some reason FR changed the location of the hydrualic lines since 2006, I'm guessing. I have a 2012 chassis and now it is a major problem....UGH!!!

On my 2011 ford I had to mount the rears backwards and air lift said that would be ok. I hope I attached a couple of photos. You have to rework the spring. The work ok like this.
