Will Factory Installed Wheel Well Liners Need Altering for Firestone Air Springs on 2016 Ford F-350


I have a 2016 F350 Super Duty Diesel that has the wheel-well liners from factory-installed will this be a problem with fitting these airbags? Will I have access to all the holes without doing any trimming?

The Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs - Double Convoluted - Rear Axle # F2597 are a great option for your 2016 Ford F-350. The factory installed wheel well liners will need to be either worked around or removed for installation but will not need any altering of any kind. It is easier to install if you remove them but you can work around them it is just more difficult according to my contact at Firestone.

On one side you will remove a bolt already present and replace it. The other side will have a hole that you will add a bolt to. You will have access with or without liners installed, but far easier access if you remove them and reinstall. I've attached a photo of the longest bolt on the liner side to help.
