    LaserBugg- It doesn't have as much lift as I want. I know it's at least 4-5 inches but I want more. Everyone says it is just the shit that I actualy bagged a 4x4 blaze, but truthfully, I'm not satisfied yet. My 4x4 would still work, but I took all that crap out (just dead weight). I will post pics of it up and down as soon as I get my compressor. I cant get full pressure until AIM sends my 'back ordered' compressor! They STILL haven't sent it!
    Come on over 8mph! We can do a small club night run or something:)

    Hey Slim, I was wondering if you had to take out the torsion bars when you put in the bags inorder to have a "fast bag" system or do the bags work with the torsion bars? I would think the torsion bars would keep them from deflating. Did you have to perform any other suspension mods?Thanx.

    They work the same with or without the t bars. I had my torsion bar trick done so all I had to do was crank down the bolts almost all the way, which then it wont even hold up the truck at all. Deflated, the frame is 1/2" off the ground. The only thing holding it up is where the bumpstop used to be is now metal to metal. To lay frame up front I will have to do some chopping and welding. I decided to do this but I will have room for new bumpstops that will bearly keep it from hitting the ground (especialy on the freeway). Then I can pull out the stops for shows and stuff to fully lay out.

    sweet, if you take out the t-bars will you loose suspension handeling? it would then be fully reliable on the air in the bags then right? If so then you have nothing but the shocks and bearings holing it back right? Then you can fill them quick and drop them fully right?

    That's right, but I removed the shocks up front. Little bouncy but fast bags.

    I know, how embarrasing! That is from the guy who, I bought it off of. I guess he didn't change the pads for a hell of a long time and the pad rivets started hitting the rotor. Bastard.

    would this airbag setup work with a 96 4 wheel drive blazer?

    Since it's not a specific kit, yes. I'm sure the suspensions are almose exactly the same. Any small difference can be made up while fitting and cutting/grinding the steel.

    Ok you said to crank the bolts almost all the way down then it will lay out!What bolts are you talking about?Im thinking of doing the same setup but with Hydros:) Also what kind of offset will I have to get when I get my 17's?I want to go ALL the way down so I need them to tuck any help would be GREATLY appreciated

    First thing you need to do is my Torsion Bar Trick. Then if you unscrew the t bar adjuster bolts it will almost layout. Obviosely you would then need bags or hydros. If you are planning on a hydro setup, you would have to completely remove the torsion bars, because hydro cylinders have much more travel than the t bars.
    The offset you need is +38-40. In the front is looks like they will never tuck, but once you get that low, the negative camber pulls them in and they do tuck fine. So as long as the offset isn't deeper than stock (+38) they will work. If you are going with 17's then the tires can't be bigger than 40 series. You will have to remove your front wheel wells anyway, but it's not a big deal.

    Yes, as long as you have a reliable suspension, like airbags or hydros. You have to remove the t bar crossmember to get them out (after you removed the keys). Just make sure that you replace that crossmember, it's structural.
