    Take the strut right out, after you can get a relocation kit for the front shocks.

    The rear has a weld on over axle bracket, the upper you have to cut the cup down. Call me up at the shop I can walk you thru it.

    for the front;
    You will be removing BOTH the spring and shock, you should have the cup sets, pair of upper and lower cups that bolt to the air bag. They fit (if made for your vehicle) perfectly inside the spring pocket and onto the lower a-arm. You may need to cut/trim the spring pocket to obtain air bag clearance so that it does not pop.

    NOTE: if you are using a 2600 type bag, you will need to cut the spring pocket some to get the clearance you need for the air bag. OFFSETTING the air bag would be wise due to the angle it receives when upper cups are not offset. Air bags work more effectively in a linear motion instead of an angled one. Also the angle will create a deformation in the bag overtime.

    Relocating the front shock isn't hard. There are relocating kits in which you have the ability to place the stock shock or new shock on the side of the frame closest to the a-arm area.

    for the rear;
    you will take out the spring ONLY. you should have 2 pairs of axle bag mounts and 2 pairs of upper bag cups. Take out the spring and replace it with the upper bag cup bolted to the air bag. The axle mount you are going to have to weld that on. I have seen some people with bolt-on types, and it will wear over time causing it to rotate on the axle WHICH IS VERY BAD.

    Hope this helps. I will get to work on diagrams of how it should look.

    so you need the front shocks then? or can you leave em off i know it would ride like shit inless its locked. and i have the RE6's up front and RE7's in the rear its the gbody kit you sell. I also heard there are different ways to mount the rear axle mounts?? you weld the arch to the axle or you can weld it to the sides of the axle so the mount sits on the axle. been doing some reading and figured to go to the source first

    thanks alot and im really sorry for the newbie questions.

    you guys are the shit thanks alot

    Don't EVER apologize for asking. I don't mind answering question, I started off asking a ton.

    You can leave them off or put them on. It's preference really, it will ride shitty both locked and dropped. With the RE6's, just trim. RULE OF THUMB, if you can run your finger around the bag WITHOUT touching metal your good to go, if not, keep at it till you can.

    Yes, but it depends on the brackets you have. If you have the brackets that fit the bag atop of it, you weld it to the axle. I don't think you have room to mount brackets on the side of the axle without having the bag deform or work awkwardly.

    For the rear its a universal kit.

    Put the car on jackstands, remove the rear coils/shocks/bumpstops.

    Bolt the wheels on,
    jack up the rear end untill its fully laid out,
    place the over axle bracket you have ontop of the axle where the OG spring used to sit.
    Now take a tape measure and measure from the UPPER Spring pocket down to the TOP of the over axle bracket.

    Take that measurement and minus 3 inchs [this is the 3" that will be the airbag fully collapsed]

    So lets say you measure 6", that means your upper cup will measure 3" in total. Take the pipe we gave you, cut it down to 3" tall and weld on the circle plate with a couple 1" stich welds. Then take the threaded rod and weld it to the plate so you can bolt in the cup from the upper spring perch.


    The rear G-body cups are off-setted this is to keep the bag away from the frame. . this is how they should look when you are done.
    It should look like this

    What I do is remove the shock after I taken off the wheel. Prop vehicle on stands a high as you can. Next put a jack under the lower a arm, jack it up enough to were there spring has tension.
    Start unbolting the balljoints, u may need to knock the ball joint bolt out of the spindle, use a hammer.
    When u finished unbolting the balljoints, sway bar, lower the jack slowly till the spring is loose.

    Hope this helps.

    One other way to remove front springs is the way I do it. Cheap and easy and safe.

    1) get yourself some 4 foot long threaded rods and some good nuts and washers. I used 1/2 or 3/8 inch rod depending on the bolts holding on your lower A-arm.

    2) Remove 1 bolt from each end of the A-Arm unles there is only 1 bolt on one end then do that one first. Now insert the threaded rod inplace of the bolt. Once you have all the bolts replaced with threaded rod all you have to do is slowly loosen the nuts on the rod untill the sprin is loose. It is key here to leave the spindle connected till the spring is loose.

    3) Remove the spindle and the A-Arm and the spring is laying at your feet now.

    Another way is to replace the shock with a 5 foot long threaded rod. Remove the spindle and then loosen the nuts on the threaded rod till the spring is loose. Most times the spring will still be in kinda tight and may need to be pryed out.

    Another way is to hit up auto zone and ask for an rwd spring compressor kit, not import. U can rent them out for about 3 days and when you bring it back u get ur money back.

    Thanks Kevin!

    Two quick questions.

    2: The large solenoid you picture in your second diagram, is that just a ford style starter solenoid or something else.

    Thanks

    Basic is the to poles a jason to each other like in the picture. Another is using the tank as a ground.
    I made up a little diagram real quick, make sure when you are grounding the tank, the connections are metal to metal.
