    pricing and info
    is there any air bag kits with 4 link out there for a 2000 dodge durango?
    now it's a four wheel drive and is there a way where i can keep the 4 wheel drive and still be bagged. I have been told that i have to convert to two wheel drive is this true?

    I don't know of any bolt on kits. It can be done though. You're probably not going to be able to lay frame with the 4wd but you can get it a few inches lower.

    Up front you'll probably have to have the inner fenders removed and a cage built over the motor. The bags will likely mount off the cage and onto the upper control arm.

    Out back is pretty standard with a 4 link of some sort.

    It's not going to be cheap. A competent shop shouldn't have much trouble doing it.

    due to the space constraints of the 4wd up front hydraulics might be easier in this application.

    I was just reading in the March Street Trucks magazine about drop spindles for 4x4 Chevys from Mc Gaughy's. I know it doesn't help ya for the Rango but I just wanted to throw it out there for anyone looking to lower a 4x4 who might be reading this thread.

    they have drop kits i dont know about drop spindles they connect to the rotor where the 4x4 goes so it wouldnt work very well unless they are a very weird shape the drop kits u can use are a torsion bar key or a new control arm which jus twists the torsion bar more
    wheres this site u were lookin at?

    The durango is easy but takes alittle more work. We used a small 2500 bag up front with a small tower built over the upper control arm. The 4 wheel drive doesnt have to be moved at all. The bag sits on the upper control arm in a angle so when the truck lifts up the bag sits str8.

    check it!

    http://www.mcgaughysclassic.com/tahoe.html

    and check out the March 2004 Street Trucks mag page 116 for the tech article where they installed the kit on an escalade

    The coils are for the rear of the truck. I guess the new burbans, tahoes, escalades and stuff have 4 links and coils in the back. I'm sure they have something different for the rears of pickups.

    The Street Trucks article didn't use the torsion keys. I guess you can install those for another 1 or 2 inches of drop up front.

    The Mc Gaughys web site wasn't as informative as I was hoping on this stuff.
