    bagg or not to bagg?

    I have some ?s about bagging the front of my 93 4dr 2wd blazer. What is a quality and fast, air management system?
    I just want to do the front for now so would a 2 path be enough or should I go with a 3 or 4 path setup for the rear later?
    Would it be better to just hard lower ( spindles, springs, leafs, and blocks) my blazer?
    What psi would I get it aligned at; full raised or the height i prefer to drive at?
    are there serious alignment problems when dropping the front 5" or more? will i have problems if i hard lower the front this much?
    Can you add coils to dropped A-arms?
    If anybody has pix or answers to my ?s PLEASE HELP!
    ThanX

    2 way is all you need right now if you are just doing the front, you can always add later. Start with drop spindles to reduce negitive camber. THere isn't really one good air ride system. You mostly have to part it together from different companies. That's the cheapest way to go. The worst thing on your wallet it going to be valves, I suggest MIC's manual valves.
    Get it aligned at the level you drive at the most, and keep that PSI in mind.
    I will have pics of my bagged 4x4 soon.
    Good Luck!

    How fast do you want it? I would say go with a minimum 3/8" valves, lines, and bag ports or 1/2"-3/4" depending on how fast you want and can afford.

    check out pikfabrications.com

    you can get everything you need(spindles, front brackets, rearbrackets, shocks, shock relocators, a 3/8 kit with compressor, tank, guages, valves, wiring, hoses, fittings and bags for about 1200.00 shipped. he offers a complete 3/8" kit-less brackets for 695.00. the front brackets are 75.00(bolt in), the rear brackets(weld in) are 65.00, shocks are 39.00 each, shock relocators for the front are 20.00, spindles are 105.00. shipping is very reasonable.

    Valves Size desides the speed. You can have 1in ports and 1in. Line but if your valves are smaller, say 3/8, Then it will move the same as 3/8 bags. Yah get what I'm saying. But definatly don't get 1in Valves for 3/8 bags cause it wont fill them any quicker. Keep everthing (ecept the line to you tank from compresser) about the same size. That is what I have be told and that is what I will go by when I bag my ride.
