cut that shit out, we do it on s-10s all the time which are the same front end as a g-body(regal cutty grand prix etc) the extra little bit of steel wont matter and youll be glad you did it. its only a 1/2" on each side of the bag, so its not very much. just cut that bitch out and put the big bag in!
So 2600# bags are only an inch wider overall (1/2" on each side)??
The back of my lac has 2500# but i want more lift. Plus it takes a ton of pressure to lift it in compared with the front. I don't think I have a half an inch on each side to spare though. Do they make triple convolted 2500#s?????
I'd look into some other brands of bags. The Firestone bags expand outward a bit when inflated. I learned that the hard way with my Ram. I had to go back and do some cutting. Slam Specialties bags and the Air Lift Gen II Extreme bags have less outward expansion so you can get the extra lift without needing to cut.
I prefer to run 2600s in the front. While it does take more air to fill the bag it isnt a noticable differance because the added diameter allows the air to accumulate in the overall area and lift the weight easier. Tghe benefit is in ride quality. The more room air has to expand the better its gonna ride
