    I am asking others what makes a car. I roll down the street now and i realize people look, with an addition of a system they realy look. I want thier jaws to drop. Help[IMG]

    With bags there is couple of combos. I have heard that you can use ajustable shocks on the back to save time. On the other hand they are slow, then i have heard of ladder bars and 4 links what would be the best. What would be the most economical.

    The best way to go is a four link. But this is expensive and time consuming. You can just mount the bags and leave one leaf spring (which you should de-arc) on each side.

    well i have 2 twelve gallon tanks at 185 pounds but since i have half inch lines and valves i use up my air fast. so u can really be playing with ur box that much b/c it kills the pressure. but i did the four link and u get better side 2 side with that. i also didnt put shocks in the front so my front hops, i was thinking of running the bottle next season but i dont know. if u run the bottle u can make bags hop like 4 -6 feet.

    What is the bottle and what if i run three eights hose. I want to hop but i am looking more just to look cool. Would 1/2 inch hose be the better way. Whats a better bottle ? I mean size or pounds.

    B & C- If you go mono leaf in the rear, de-arcing in done by taking a torch the spring in two places the let it drop another inch or two. You heat it up about an inch from the loop eye in each end. The weight of the truck will bend it down.
    'The bottle' is a Co2 bottle. Same as air just smaller tank and a whole hell of a lot of pressure. You have to have a regulator also.
