I was told by a guy around here in indy that I can over extend my rear bags and was wondering if this is true. He told me I should look into strapping the rear. I have never heard of this but on hydraulics so I thought I would ask here

Thanks

well, let me say it like this. the way that car is, its fine, aint shit going to happen with the bags straight up and down and the lower pressure thats ran. its a HS bag 300psi :uh: now if your going over that you might have a problem.
lets take Matts air hopping s10 for an example. he runs like 600psi to a 300psi bag and over extends them and blows out bags. but you are fine and good to go with that set up, i ran that for how long trouble free? but i guess if you wanna love a 1" of travel and strap if, go for it.
well if i was to do that i would get them 13" bags to gain some :cheesy:

so i shouldnt worry then as the most that tank has in it is 250 psi and that is only for messing around, otherwise its like 212. I also dont think I have seen over 100 psi in those back bags yet either, but I was just checking as this guy has an s10 that is strapped as well and he was just saying he wanted to warn me...lol

thanks

He may not be over extending them. He actually maybe just blowing them due to a high pressure spike. Watch the video and see the way the truck lands. Most of the times he lands it land with full psi in the bags when it comes down. The spike in pressure must be huge.. This could also be a reason he is blowing bags.
