Truck lift

Just had a leaf suspension lift installed on my 2500 Dodge. Looks perfect when hooked up. Lift raises suspension 2 inches and squat with Silverback is equal so the truck and trailer look perfectly straight. The question is the clearance to the truck sides is 8 inches. Looks like this for should be perfect. Is that about right for the Silverback ? Looks very similar spacing to what I had on my 2011 Outback and it towed and rode like it had nothing behind it. Trying for same here.

I always felt that anything over 6" was adequate to keep from mashing your box side walls. Some hitches have more roll capability than others but you should be fine. I would be more concerned with what made your rear end sag so much you needed an erector set to lift it up. Have you weighed your rear axle with the loaded SB on it? Also a new height measurement would be good now that you are all puffed up.
