Firestone Air Bag Suspension

I would like to install Firestone Ride-Rite air bags on my 2007 Lex 255 GTS, Ford E450. I am having trouble determining which kit to buy. Can anyone help me?

I don't know if this will help you or not. I did all the research to add the Firestone air bags to my 2007 Lexington 255 GTS. I determined that the airbags will not work over the leaf springs because the metal body would needs modifying. Not to give up a call to Firestone informed me that a different part number would work on the inside over the rear axel. Going to work, I was successful in getting to a point of installing the bag on the passenger side. I really don't know why I did this but I did. While I was laying under the RV resting I happened to look at the area where the bag location would be on the driver side, what I saw was dis-heartening. Right where the airbag goes all the hydraulic lines convergence to a block. I quit right there, put everything back together and got my money back. This is my experience if you determine there is a way to make the Firestone Airbags work I would like to know, I still would like to airbag my RV.
