    Hello! Thank you very much! Do you have any picks from upper brackets when ready? Bolt or welded? What kind of bags and pressure you use? And your welded "pocket" in front lower arm -is it for lowering more or better position for bags? Just wondering is it possible to do without. Did you do some cutting from frame "holes"? Thanks again!

    Thanks !
    At First i build it so because I think thats the Best Position so the Bags stand in Line at Drive Position .
    I use 2600 Bags in the Front and 2500 in the Rear with max 12 Bar ,Drive i will on 6-7 in the Front and 4-5 in the Rear , Cruise 5 Front 3 Rear German Streets are not the Best .
    If it lay down i got 3cm from the Frame to the Street
    I don't cut the Frame and these are the Upper Cups

    Holzi, thank you for outlining your work! I have a 1978 Lincoln Continental, and am looking at a full airbag kit as well...

    Is the threaded top of the cup in the front to keep it bolted through the factory top shock absorber mount?

    Could you provide measurements of the height and diameter of the cups you made? Diameter of the 2600lb and 2500b airbags, front and rear?

    Thank you!

    I have 2600 in the front and 2500 in the rear and the Plates are 10mm more Diameter than the Bags ,frontcups are mounted to the Factoryhole for the Shocks .
    The measure is not easy to say i build the Lower Arm and put it to the Car then i lift it until it lays on the Bump Stop then i measure the Space between the Controlarm and the Upper side I build it so that i must not Cut the Frame for the Set up .

    From that^^^^^ to this...



    I've also picked up a full manual-valve airbag kit from AirBagIt - 5gal tank, dual Viair 444C's, 2600lb bags. Looking forward to getting to it!

    I used AirSlamIt through eBay to source a 5gal steel tank and two 400C Viair compressors. Mounted in the trunk as far back as I could. Carpet is cut to fit...looks very clean.





    Just some quick shots of the control panel (not installed) and the carpet in the trunk once everything was laid out.

    I used 2600lb air bags in all 4 corners. Only used 1" cups for the top and bottom mounts in the rear. Stock shock locations worked out fine!

    Here are the rears aired out. I am looking at the front springs and I'm going to have to do something about the bag-to-coilspring pocket on the frame...as well as shock relocation spot.







    Drove it, let it sit overnight. Zero leaks. Tank and bags hold air perfectly.

    I've unfortunately been blowing out front airbags...3 pair so far this season.

    Both right-side bags developed slow leaks, which I don't mind as I just keep airing them up...I'm never driving the car in Columbus, OH more than 30 minutes - and I air it to the ground when I park.

    My big problem was the first bag I blew. 2600lb bag broke off the factory bumpstop, and exposed the sharp mounting plate underneath. Lasted about 1 month before it let out at 45mph. Not a problem. I emailed Edgar @ AirSlamIt and he sent me narrower, 2500lb bags for the front. I ground down the brackets (also located the front radius arms to the control arms, so they were kind of a big deal), but now, I developed a slow leak in one of the bags again!!!!

    It looks like the angle of the mounts - between the lower control arm and the upper cup - force the bag to blow outward towards the tire, instead of more linearly up-and-down. By this, it looks like nothing I can do will stop the bags from eventually bubbling out so far that they will contact SOMETHING and rub themselves to death.

    Here's a recent shot to keep you guys engaged on my plight.

    Damn that sucks. There's gotta be something that can be done. Maybe an offset cup?
