B&W turnover ball + airbags 2015 Chevy 2500HD

I have Airlift 5000 airbags on my 2015 2500HD truck. I want to install a B&W turnover ball gooseneck hitch. For the life of me, I cannot find a definitive answer on the web if I can do this with the airbags (the airbags use U-bolts that look like they will interfere with the B&W frame mount). Does anyone with a Chevy HD (Ford and Ram are different installs for airbags) have both airbags and a B&W? If not, I can check when I get back to my truck in a month or so.

Man I think you are going to have to send an email off to Airlift for that.

I did some digging around and about the only thing I found was it would fit but you might have to do some drilling to make it work. Since both are installing in the same area.

This was on Etrailer site

Chevy Silverado 2500 will require drilling if you have the B&W Gooseneck hitch but it will be compatible. The self tapping screws will allow you to attach the Air Lift springs to the bottom of the frame rail and not use the U-bolts which would interfere with the Gooseneck brackets.

If you do not want to drill, I recommend Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs # F2596 which is still a great quality brand and does not have any interference with an in-bed hitch like your B & W Gooseneck hitch because of their install location. We have had plenty of customers install these air bags with their Gooseneck hitch in the bed without issue.
