    Just look at it if you know anything about suspension

    I was wondering If I could Trash the front differential,torsion bars,and the axles and replace them with air cylinders and if so how and how would I mount them or could i buy brackets or would I have to take it to a shop...
    I have a 4x4 crew cab but not for long they say i cant do it what do you think....

    you could do that youll just have to make custom mounts for the air cylinders...you can buy my brackets(look at sig v) and use airbags and keep the 4x4 if you want

    Thats exactly what I told you on AIM if you wanted to keep it.

    If it was my truck I would rip all that shit out & pretend it was a regular 2wd torison bar import truck and stick a bag in there and have alot less headaches.

    normally you got the bags inbetween the control arms but you got a dam shaft there so either rip out the 4x4 or make em go on top of the upper arms and make a mount

    My first blazer was 4x4 but I did hydraulics instead. I got rid of all the 4x4 components, and made a mount off the frame rail and had the cylinder bolted to the lower control arm then through the mount and then I used mini coils cause there wasnt room for regular coils. This probably doesn't help much since you want to go to bags, but i think hydros might be an easier option. Just an opinion.

    I'm not new, what happened was I got an email on my phone about the one thread about everybody's first post, and I clicked the link that he posted as his first post instead of the link to the new thread, lol stupid mistake.
