Alright, i'm tired of bags blowin out in the front from rubbing. I'm only running 2500 Firestones and their still not small enough to keep from rubbing. Can anyone help me out? I really don't want to cut and redo my a arms so is there any other way to keep from rubbing? Any help is greatly appreciated.

What are they rubbing on ? Do they rub when fully aired up?

Try running a slam bag because it does not "balloon" as much as the firestone.

Hit me up if you want a cheep price on some slams. Thanks man. And Good luck. Pics would help.

hey, ill try and get some pics of the bags tonight. I have slams in the back but I didn't want to pay the price for them for teh front because it rubs, I think they rub when its fully slammed because when its up it doesnt touch anywhere.

I had the same problem when trying to run the firestone 2600 up front in my 02 explorer. I went with a single bellow universal air bag. So far no problems and just about the same amount of lift.
I may have to look into that cause my 2500s aint givin me enough lift. thanks for the info man.

dont blow two more bags sell the two bags and buy the right ones it would be a total wastw of 2 bags to put em on knowing theyre gonna blow.

I put them on, not a bad install, the front is cups and just sits where the spring was, tellin me is a bad install is just wasting my time, I know i need to cut some stuff but thats why im here asking wtf I need to do because im sure others have encountered this problem. Thats like someone sayin their having engine problems and you saying ah its from not taking care of your motor right......its worthless information. And second of all I have airlift 2500lb bags on there right now that have alot of rubbing on em. the spair bags im talking about are from teh back because I got some slams for more lift in the back and im left with my 2500 firestones, no ones gonna buy em for any worth wild amount of money, their 2 years old.......
