    there are only 2 out there have have proven them self's with little to no problems and the co's stand behind them 100%

    slams http://www.airridefittings.com/store...roducts_id=822

    or airlift's dominator. http://www.airridefittings.com/store...roducts_id=818



    i myself only run dominator's on may of my builds and friends builds. i have had 0 problems from them, my front bags on my blazer were installed before they hit the market lol and still look like new. slams are bad ass to and have a few buddys running them, i have seen some of them have rubber problems online but they were warranted with no questions. the dominator's are cheaper and the slams i posted are the SS they have a RE thats alittle cheaper but would go with the SS

    any questions just ask

    ill second the previous suggestion. Ive had slams for a long long time on a daily and they are great. I havent ran the dominators but everyone who does absolutely loves them, and the price on them is great. Both slam specialties and airlift have fantastic customer service, so no matter which you choose they will stand behind their products 100%

    dominaters suck there to soft and pop to easy. 2500 dominaters will not work on a v6 at all you will bottom out on bumps and risk popping a bag on large bumps. I made the mistake of trying them ill never use them again. v6 id run slamspecialty 7's in the front 4 cyle could run 6s but i would still run 7s. rear if its bag over axle id run firestone sleeved 9001. 9000 again is to soft. People love them but they dont know what there missing and dont run a heavy load. If the bags are on the bars just run slams.
    Honk if you love peace and quiet

    i dont know why everyone says that about a 2500 bag. I ran them for years with my v8 and it was fine. A bump shouldnt pop a bag unless something else is wrong. The only thing i can think of is they were over extending when the suspension rebounded which will happen with any bag.

    a 2500 slam will hold a v8 it will take more psi to get it to ride highth. You will also feel the smaller bumps more but will be softer on big bumps and dips. a bag can pop from hitting a bump to hard to were the bag can not support the vehicle the wheel is forced up on a fully inflated bag causing the bag to pinch it self on the inside.

    have you used them on a v6? I have Ive also sold them. you cant even drive low you hit the brakes and they compress so much that the truck drags on the ground. also on a blazer they wont even lift individual sides! You want a video? I sold a ton of these things and wanted to try them out now that I tried them out people have had enough time to use them and they all say the same things. ill never run a 2500 dominater on the front again.

    as i already said i ran a 2500 airlift bag (the older 2b6's) on my blazer for years, daily driven, and with a v8. ride height was about 80 psi and it rode great. Hit sides, locked out the control arms and road pretty fucking good. If yours wouldnt lift one side you had some other problem
