    Just curious if any of you have seen these bags work with lowered cars? For instance my gto has been lowered 1.5" in the front and 1" in the rear. The adds say that the bags will only work with factory springs. I called BMR and they told me that they should work with my Iabach springs but dont know for sure. Do any of you know? By the way I really need drag bags I cant get anything better than a 2.19 of the line with lots of wheel hop and cant break 13.00 w/ 412 rwhp-378tq SO I REEAAALLLY need to know if these things will fit.

    Thanks guys

    Works for me and I am running Sportlines which is a 1.7 drop and 1.8. It raises my ass end a little which I dont like but seems to keep me stiffer off the line. But if I was you I would look into L.C.A. and L.C.A. Relocation brackets since you have lowered the car and the geometry of the rear end has changed first... Thats just my two cents....

    drag bags

    They where not very hard to get in, but it took alittle time, I wire tied them to as small as I could and ppushed them throw the spring, I don't think they will ever come out, Don't do the same mistake I did, I cut the tubes to short so they just hang down passed the spring, I have them seperate, and when you go to race its a pane to keep going under to adjust them.

    No cake you jack up your car at the middlw subframes let your rear end reach for the ground,(drop) pull your springs out put bags in, then install lines, and put springs back in...

    Yea no problem, I think you will really enjoy them and alot of us track guys use them. The hardest part is just getting the springs out, and then putting the bags in and hoses are very easy, dont use the "T" valve though use an independent valve for each hose. I use about 8 pounds in both but everyone has there own personal preferance.... good luck

    Here you go.... they will fit same coil springs, and the bags fit inside the coils.

    no need to take springs out, just tie them up small as you can and push them in.

    I did forget that you had to saw off the humps on the bottom, no big deal to do it.
