    Drag bags

    Ordered my drag bags yesterday did the search and got some good info, but it looks like you have to drill a hole in the bottom after you cut the rubber off for the air connection and the top rubber has to be sawed off------do you all think the spring, should come out--------------- what is the best way you think it should be done. Thanks, Jack

    I've installed two sets for a couple of Goats down here.....I can tell you to not forget to take it out of gear/park and release the parking brake to release the control arms
    I used a die grinder on the bump stops and ran the air line to the gas tank filler...pretty straight forward...did not remove any of the springs....I have Pedders drag springs and Konis...no air bags....

    I have put several of these in GTOs they are simple to install ,hole is already in there I beleive ,I have a lift in garage so easy for me to install them,use sawsaw to cut bottom stoppper off,put line on the bags before installing them in springs.

    Finished up the bags, very easy install all went well. Cleaned everything up and chilled the rest of the evening. This morning the roads were wet so wated till about noon to try then out ,put a pump and battery pack in the back them hooked up by the T { not sure where they will go so was temporary}. So the test begins, Tryed every thing from 5# to 30# still wheel hop, so split them amd tried all the pressures fron 5# to 30# both ways still wheel hop Anyone have a clue? Thanks, Jack
