Firestone Air Bag Spacers for a 1996 GMC Yukon With Body Lift


Do you know what size airbag spacers I would need for this lift? Seems like they are kind of stretched out from bracket to bracket causing me to have to put more air in them which makes a stiffer ride. They were on the truck when I got it and they don't say a brand anywhere on the airbag. Thank you

Since spacers are brand specific, you would need to know what brand of air bags that you have so that you can install the proper spacers. From the picture that you sent, unfortunately there is no way to be able to identify the brand of air bags that you have. I reached out to Firestone to see if they could identify the air bags and they said that even though they couldn't identify them from the picture, you could use their spacers as long as the hole configurations are the same and the spacers can properly sit on the brackets.

To install the correct size spacers you will need to determine the hole configurations. Normally you would install spacers that are the same size as the body lift on your truck, but since this looks like a custom job, I recommend installing a smaller spacer to fill in some of that space. Firestone has a variety of spacers including a 1-1/4 inch, part # F2536, a 2 inch, part # F2366, and a 3 inch, part # F2368. The diameter of each spacer is 4-1/4 inches and the holes, from center-to-center, are 2-3/4 inches apart. I have attached a picture demonstrating this on the 3 inch spacers.
