I ordered a set of Ride-Rite helpers, part number 2430.

The ones I've had before bolted to the frame on top, then to the leaf springs on bottom. The ones for the new trucks use the axle to mount on the bottom with 4 hooks.

I'm using the Rough Country 6.5" rear lift blocks, so this may not work. I really need these, and really need them by next weekend.

Any suggestions? I emailed Firestone about this, just waiting for a response.

Are the axle housings different in the 07+? The only issue I can think off would be brake line routing. It looks like they come with their own bracket that fits over the axle perch. If you're really in a bind, contact that shop in the link and ask them. Or you could just buy them and hope for the best, then return them if they don't work. It may cost a few bucks to return them, but if you really need them by next weekend and don't get a reply from Firestone, then......

Only thing I would say you could do is make your own brackets under the spring and bolt it together with bolts instead of the J-hooks. That is what I would do.
